Around Manhattan, the most common jacket that I see is a Canada Goose Arctic Project one, identifiable with a patch on the upper arm: a circle with a map of Antarctica and the brand name on it.

What's so special about these and why have they basically taken over; Burberry, Barbour, North Face, etc. aren't as good?

It's the new "in" brand, like North Face was for years.

Well up here in New England where it actually gets cold, Bean's still rules.

We don’t need them here in California. In the Bay it is more like North Face, Patagonia or maybe Marmot.

I have a North Face jacket and vest found on www.shopgoodwill.com last year. Also a down vest from Costco I found for $15.

I wear the Costco vest the most.

People who live in NYC are not dashing from the car to the office door or from the garage to the house. They are outside a lot and need warm and sturdy clothing.

I have one of the puffer coats and its super warm but also very light. Great fit, lots of pockets, two way zipper, great color. Knee length and can be stuffed into a pocket pillow. A friend has one of the parkas. It is even warmer and also blocks wind.


Yes, it was costly but it is worth it to me. YMMV.

Nothing is anymore special about them than any other down-filled coat. It is just a trend.

Regional status brand. People are lemmings about stuff like this. Any well-made down-filled coat will keep you warm if you know how to dress and take care of it.

Not everyone has one, they are expensive and made for Arctic type cold like what we had yesterday in the NYC area. They are heavy and are a status symbol for many people just like having a fancy car.
