As the last leaves are falling from the trees here in New York City, it’s time to prepare for the coldest months of the year. This means it’s officially time to never leave the house without a warm and cozy coat. But, not all bundling is created equal.

I moved to the big apple about a year ago and my warmest jacket at the time just wasn’t warm enough. At the same time, I kept seeing the most chic New Yorkers sporting coats with that iconic Canada Goose arm patch. From then on, I've kept the brand on my radar.

Turns out the New Yorkers I saw last year were on to something. Fast forward to today and I’ll be living in the Canada Goose Armstrong Hoody this winter season. It is both comfortable and durable with reinforced fabric that keeps you warm well below zero — plus it is windproof. And the best part: it packs into itself to transform into a small carrying pouch making it perfect for travel.

This coat has been specifically designed for the user in mind which is probably why it has a 100% customer recommendation score. The down-filled hood is adjustable in two different directions, which fits nice and snug for optimal weather protection. And while this coat is very warm, it offers a range of mobility via underarm gussets and power stretch cuffs with thumbhole construction.   

Canada Goose has long been a leader in the outdoor gear space. Founded in a small warehouse in Toronto almost sixty years ago, Canada Goose is now one of the world’s largest makers of luxury outdoor apparel. A lot of their designs are inspired by one of the coldest places on earth — Antarctica. And through the years, many legendary adventurers and athletes have trusted the brand to keep them alive and warm in the harshest of environments.

Since trying the Armstrong Hoody for everyday wear, I haven’t shivered once in the already chilly NYC weather. I am excited to spend the season with this sleek, slim-fitted puffer. Its many features are exciting, but its style fits my lifestyle of running from work to events to traveling to far-fetched locales — all while keeping me warm and comfortable. And it will do the same for you.
