I was talking to Ashby about it, and I had her wear one for the day. She said it was the first time she's worn a jacket and has genuinely been warm throughout the entire time. There is just something so different about these coats.
Not that I would understand why you'd want to remove the whole thing, BUT if you so desire, you may.

While still too early to tell if Canada Goose jackets will remain popular, current enthusiasm for the jackets stem from their association with luxury and reputation as a social statement, not their "objective qualities" as Antarctica - grade coldgear. Therefore, as students purchase these jackets based on this reasoning, I consider them a fad at the University of Chicago. This is not to say the company lacks a consumer base who uses these jackets for situations closer to functional intent.
This one's for you, Toronto. Paying tribute to the unpredictable weather of our home town, the Toronto Jacket is a versatile 3 - in - 1. When the down - filled outer shell and lightweight down inner shell are worn together they're warm enough for a Toronto winter's harshest days, while the removable inner shell is a flexible layering essential.
Made for utility, but designed for life, the E90 backpack (a first for Canada Goose) offers side drawstring pouches and a Canada Goose Outlet top zip pocket to keep essentials close and easy to access, plus a removable cross body bag that snaps into the interior. Fill it with some of your favourite things for a day of urban adventuring. If that happens to include a bottle of refreshment, the soft structure and interior padding has you covered.
