I’m heading to Calgary tomorrow for the holidays, armed with all my warmest, fluffiest sweaters, and boots that could best be described as unladylike (no, they are not Uggs). What I wish I was bringing was this parka by Canada Goose. Having lived in Vancouver for six years now, I’ve become somewhat spoiled weather-wise. So every time I head anywhere even slightly approaching towards the lower end of the scale, I’m grossly unprepared. Warmth is in the details: the duck down insulation, the fleece lining (including the pockets!), the coyote fur ruff, and the rib-knit cuffs to prevent the cold from sneaking in. 
$595 at Holt Renfrew.
