About two years ago I started wearing vests.
I never bought them before because I didn’t see the point but now I do. Warm body yet avoid over-heating as heat can escape via arms.
It’s an ideal outerwear option for Fall and Spring.
They look cool too.
As part of my Canada Goose shopping spree, I tacked on a vest into the shopping cart. My first vest purchases were Lululemon vests. I figured I might as well get one by Canada Goose as well. I opted for the Freestyle Crew vest.
What do I think of my Canada Goose vest?
It’s great. It’s warm. It fits great. Looks great although it has the hardcore outdoor style to it. With a pair of jeans or even rugged shorts, it’s a good look.
It works with athletic wear as well although I like the look with jeans more.
It’s somewhat bulky but I have the slim fit cut which slims it down nicely so I don’t look like a balloon in it.
Down-filled: Canada Goose is known for down-filled apparel. This vest is one such garment stuffed with down for warmth.
Crew collar: I love anything with higher collars so this crew cut neck was a natural choice for me. It’s soft as well for comfort and additional warmth.
Slim fit: I like my vests cut slim so they are snug around my torso. Otherwise, they look far too huge.
Pockets: This thing comes with a nice selection of pockets (several outer and two inside pockets).
Durable: The material is tough and rugged. You can feel it’s strong materials and durable.
Secure zipper and button-flap: The zipper is heavy-duty, solid but also smooth. There’s a button-down flap that secures on top of the zipper for further wind protection. The buttons look better than an exposed zipper.
Is this vest worth the money?
Yeah, it is if you like vests and if spending the hundreds more compared to other vests isn’t a hardship.
After buying something from every product line Canada Goose sells, I have to say it’s worth the money if you can afford it. It really is great outer wear apparel.
