Martin, are you sure your parka is not a counterfiet? There are alot of fakes canada goose on the market. And one tell is fake fur. Canada Goose uses only real canadian coyote fur, (which is more environmentally stable then fake fur, and I dont own the mantra I have the chilliwack, which has kept me warm in -50 weather. Fake Canada goose often uses chicken feathers, which do not keep thier lift so does not provide warmth!
Currently, new Snow Mantras, Resolutes, Expeditions, and Heli Arctics all have a haul loop in the middle of the back, just above the shoulder blades. Haul loops for these parkas will have the name of the parka embroidered on a tag which is stitched to the haul loop. Haul loops for the adult models of these parkas will never say Canada Goose. This is an example of a genuine Canada Goose haul loop.
Here, the counterfeiters have bothered to put the name of the parka on the haul loop. Look, however, at the plastic ID pocket. Real Canada Goose ID pockets are made of a special material designed to remain flexible at very low temperatures. The real thing has a dull finish and is not completely transparent. It is also relatively thick and does not crease or wrinkle. The pocket on this parka, however, is both very transparent, and very shiny. The pocket itself is also too small. On a genuine Snow Mantra, the ID pocket covers almost the entire left breast pocket.
When oil rig workers find themselves toiling in the world’s most extreme conditions, where fierce winds blow and temperatures can plummet to 60 degrees below, they need the parka specially designed to be the ‘warmest jacket on the planet.’ The outstanding features of the Snow Mantra Parka have made Canada Goose famous around the world – and with good reason.
