Canada Goose has over 40 years of industry-leading understanding of down insulation technology which allows us to choose the best blends of down to suit the specific requirements of each of our jackets. All of our blends include some Hutterite down, among the most premium Canadian down available. Its ability to retain more warm air than other types of down results in lighter weight jackets that don't sacrifice warmth.
We choose down because it is the world's best insulator, providing approximately three times the warmth per ounce as synthetic insulators, ultimately creating a significantly warmer and lighter product. Each ounce of down has approximately two million fluffy filaments that interlock and overlap to create insulating pockets of air, which keeps you warm. When cared for properly, a high-quality down-filled coat will last for generations.
Canada Goose is deeply committed to the preservation of our global environment and the humane treatment of animals. We never use down from live-plucked or force-fed birds, and only purchase down that comes as a byproduct from the poultry industry.
All the down insulation that Canada Goose uses is Canadian by content and sourced globally. We purchase all of our down from Feather Industries Canada Ltd., a Canadian down-procurement company. All feathers and down procured by Feather Industries are purchased from approved vendors, and these suppliers are fully aware of our policies and share the same philosophical and ethical position.
