Men’s Down Jackets: Canada’s Winters Tamed with Down Fill Power

January 02, 2019

 

Canadians do winter better than most countries. Every year from coast to coast, we prepare for the "white-stuff” with a sense of dread. Shoveling snow and clearing the car are chores wrought with frost bite and wind burn and often, we aren’t protected well with warm outerwear. Men’s down jackets made in Canada are affordable and provide incomparable warmth and protection from cold temperatures. Down jackets are filled with feathers from either duck or geese. The fluffiness of the down (or fill power) creates thousands of tiny air pockets that trap warm air to keep you warm. Duck down is more affordable than geese as the feathers are smaller. Ease of access also plays a factor in the cost. Duck is in higher demand on farms for meat and eggs, therefore the feathers can be collected from a higher number of farms. Goose feathers are more expensive and for the purposes of performance apparel, have a comparable down fill power. The larger the feathers, the higher the down fill power and insulation rating. As goose down is well marketed by other brands, this can deter people from considering men’s down jackets in Canada given the higher price point.

Top outerwear companies making men’s down jackets in Canada use duck down and coyote or beaver fur for hood trims. The fur is used not just for style – but to protect the face from blowing snow and wind. Men’s down jackets are functional, but also stylish and empower Canadians to step outside in winter months and enjoy life to its fullest!
