Toboggan Canada Winter Jackets Like Canada Goose! (CONTEST)

The Vanessa Winter Jacket in Blue by Toboggan Canada
Everyone has heard of Canada Goose winter jackets, but I bet you haven't heard of Toboggan Canada jackets! The Toboggan Canada label started in 1977, which is why I was surprised to not have heard of them all these years later. Apparently the label that was started 39 years ago by two brothers, has now been rebranded by one of the original founder's own two sons!

My family has fallen in love with Toboggan Canada's jackets: from the quality craftmanship, to the extreme down-filled warmth, to the styling.  If you are a fan of Canada Goose, you should definitely check out Toboggan Canada.  They take the fashion beyond the tried and true parka, to their own uniquely styled deep winter jackets--that are designed here in Canada.  Specifically, I'm talking about Eva-B Long Winter Jacket, which I will discuss more below. 

The Tomas Winter Jacket in Red by Toboggan Canada
I like that Toboggan Canada makes winter jackets for the entire family.  The Toboggan Canada website has a women's, men's and kid's section, making shopping easy.  From a Canadian winter perspective, the jackets are super warm and down-filled, and the hoods are lined as soft and cozy as a baby's blanket.  The jacket is constructed from a water-repellent and water-proof Taslan shell, which was very durable and kept the kids dry while sledding down pretty rough hills.     

The Vanessa Winter Jacket Stands Up to Sledding!
The Vanessa Winter Jacket in blue stole my heart when I first saw it.  You can see my daughter wearing it, above, on a snowy day.  The scent is like a feather duvet, and it's long length will keep you warm up to your knees.  It has a double zipper, which can be unzipped without splitting when you sit in the car.  The hood is trimmed with faux beaver, and it's like a chunky sherpa lining.  My daughter raved about the lined pockets, which are good for heating cold hands.  The hood is decorated with faux raccoon fur for style, and the hood unsnaps when unneeded.  

Aside from being a super warm jacket, I loved added features of the jacket like the rib-knit cuffs that prevent wind (and snow) from blowing up the sleeve, and the pockets that feature magnetic closure.  The beautifully lined jacket features a generous inner pocket for your cellphone or wallet.

Nice touch: From a fashion perspective, I loved how the Vanessa jacket includes 4 interchangeable velcro patches for each sleeve.  It's a nice touch!

Sledding in the Tomas Winter Jacket
My son went crazy for his Tomas Winter Jacket in red, and kept remarking that he felt like he was wearing a feather duvet. Aside from being very warm for our harsh Canadian climate because it covers the behind and upper thighs, it features the softest lined hood you have ever felt.  I said it before, but it was made from the same material as a baby's security blanket...so soft!  The hood features faux coyote fur trim, which can be unzipped if unneeded.  

There is a drawstring inside the jacket to prevent cold air and snow from blowing up your torso.  The jacket features 4 outer pockets for your cellphone, wallet, bus pass, etc...and there is a generous inner pocket with a zipper for valuables.  There is even a small inner ticket pocket.  Just like the previous Toboggan Canada jacket that I mentioned, it boasts rib-knit cuffs that prevent wind (and snow) from blowing up the sleeve.
  
Nice touch: I liked how the Tomas Winter Jacket has a large front panel that covers the zipper to keep the wind out.  The panel is secured by buttons, which added a nostalgic look to this men's jacket.
The Eva-B Long Winter Jacket in Olive by Toboggan Canada
"The Hood is Good"

It's All About The Small Details
Earlier in this article I mentioned the Eva-B Long Winter Jacket, which is a style unique to Toboggan Canada.  Like the previous two jackets I mentioned, it is also down-filled and features a water-repellent and water-proof Taslan fabric.  It is meant to cover the behind and upper thighs, but if you're short, consider the Eva-B Winter Jacket, which is not as long. 

"You Won't Be Cold In This Jacket This Winter"
The centerpiece of this jacket, is it's magnificant faux fox fur hood.  It definitely makes a fashion statement and is eye-catching.  The jacket also cinches in with an easy to fasten belt, which adds to the look of the Eva-B.  The jacket also features rib-knit cuffs and a neck piece to prevent cold weather from blowing into your garment, and toasty polar fleece lined pockets for frozen fingers...which snap shut with magnetic closures.  There is a handy zippered inner pocket to hold valuables.

Nice touch: I love how the jacket zips up twice: once in the under layer, and once in the outer layer.  It not only keeps the wearer toasty warm, but paired with the easy clasp belt, it creates an A-line figure and does not give a bulky appearance. 

Hitting the Slopes in Toboggan Canada!
Of special interest, all of the jackets in this article come in different colours and sizes than are shown.   Some are also available in plus sizes.  You can check out the entire Toboggan Canada line here.

Then laughing more realizing that they can obviously hear us!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I live in North Carolina, but it still gets very cold here, especially in the mountains. We usually have one or two big snows here a year, but we get lots of ice. Ice is worse than snow because there are lots of power outages that can last a week. We can put food in a cooler outside, but there is nothing you can do about no heat unless you have a fireplace or wood stove. We don't, so this coat would certainly kd2ep one of us warm. I still love the winter because snow coming down is astonishingly beautiful. Everything looks fresh and clean. I love drinking hot tea and coffee and eating the soups we put up during the summer. I am making myself hungry!
