An initial public offering for Canada Goose is not on the table, at this time, he added. Their focus is to expand the Canada Goose brand, extending its reach geographically, particularly to Asia. It recently entered the Korean market, and it is targeting China, he said.
“There’s a lot of places we can grow, there’s a lot of ways we can grow. There’s a lot of runways left,” he said.

“This is something I intend to do for a long time to come,” Mr. Reiss said.
Canada Goose president and chief executive Dani Reiss aren’t nervous about selling his quintessential Canadian-made outerwear company to Bain Capital, even with the U.S. private equity firm’s notorious reputation for outsourcing.

If I thought that it was going to change, I would not have done this deal.”

The Toronto-based, family-owned extreme-weather outerwear company announced Tuesday that it has agreed to sell a “majority stake” to Boston-based Bain. The financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.
canada goose coats Mr. Reiss will remain president and chief executive of the company and will retain a “significant minority stake” in Canada Goose, telling Reuters his stake will be more than 10%.
Canada Goose was founded in a small Toronto-warehouse in 1957 by Mr. Reiss’s grandfather Sam Tick. But the brand has taken off rapidly in the last decade by marketing its Made-In-Canada ethos and trendy goose down parkas with red, white and blue circular patches to Europeans, who have flocked to the outerwear. Celebrities such as Toronto-born rapper Drake have been spotted donning the puffy canada goose coats.

The company employs more than 1,000 people around the globe, but its products are made in Toronto and Winnipeg (when many manufacturers are moving production to locales with lower labor costs). Canada Goose has annual sales of roughly $200-million, according to Reuters.
canada goose jackets In April, the company appointed investment bank Canaccord Genuity to begin shopping around for a minority partner to introduce additional equity into the company. They chose Bain Capital because they were the “best partner,” given their global reach, said Mr. Reiss.
“We thought that they brought the best value to the table, and they were only interested in a majority deal,” he said. “And we decided this was the right move for our company, and the right move for our family.”

Earlier this year, the Valcourt, Que.-based motorsports manufacturer raised $262.3-million — making it one of the largest initial public offerings in the country this year.
canada goose bomber “Dani and the Canada Goose management team have already accomplished a great deal in establishing the premium outerwear category and creating a unique global brand that exudes authenticity,” said Ryan Cotton, a principal at Bain Capital, in a press release. “We are very excited to employ our global resources and experience to help the team continue to build the business and fuel an even more successful future.”

Mr. Reiss is adamant Canada Goose will continue to be made on Canadian soil.
In May, the outerwear company said it had plans to open a U.S. headquarters in Denver, Co., but had no intention to move production south of the border. That plan remains, Mr. Reiss says womens canada goose jacket, canada goose jacket sale, Canada Goose Black Friday.
north face Not all insulation is created equal, and deciding to kit yourself out for a specific adventure with down or synthetic insulation is a question we each ask ourselves over and over again. The answer largely depends on what environment you’re venturing into and what activities you’ll be undertaking. Whether you’re on a snowy belay ledge, thigh-mastering up a wet and windy peak, or layering up for an afternoon breaking trail with your favorite cross-country skis, knowing when and where each type of insulation performs best will help you decide between these two types of insulation.
You might not believe us, but down is not made from feathers. Down insulation is made from goose or duck plumage – the lofty, fluffy stuff underneath the feathers. It is an undercoating or a natural mid layer. Nature’s best insulation down creates high-loft clusters that trap air and body heat. In addition to its ability to efficiently trap heat, down is also incredibly breathable, allowing it to wick unwanted moisture away from your body to evaporate.
canada goose jacket uk Because of its supreme warmth-to-weight ratio and incredible compressibility—which makes it very easy to pack—down is considered the crème de la crème of insulators. It remains lightweight and compressible while holding you in a cocoon of warmth, definitely something to consider when debating what to take on your trek and what to leave in the closet.

Down can be broken into a spectrum of effectiveness. We measure this effectiveness—“fill power”—by how many cubic inches one ounce of down can fill. The typical range is around 450 to 900, with 900 being the warmest and lightest… but also the priciest.
canada goose sale uk The warmest, lightest down comes at a premium price because it’s sourced from mature geese. This is the best insulator because the high-loft goose down has a very fine construction. Duck down is less fine than goose down and thus is less expensive, but also maintains slightly less loft.
Natural down is also incredibly resilient and—if properly cared for—can be used for many years. However, down has a few *ahem* downfalls: First, down is incapable of efficiently repelling moisture. In fact, it loses many of its insulating properties when it gets wet and is often slow to dry.

With all that in mind, if you’re faced with cold, dry conditions or if you don’t expect to encounter wet weather, then down insulation is your ticket. Plus—now you can shop with confidence because OR stands behind the Responsible Down Standard.
Or—if you REALLY want the warmth of down regardless of the weather—you could consider the beefcake of down jackets, the Outdoor Research Floodlight Jacket™ – a fully waterproof, down-insulated jacket made to take on the most insufferable conditions. We overcome the problems down creates in wet environments by stuffing 800+ fill down insulation into a waterproof Pertex® Shield + fabric, creating a truly waterproof down-insulated jacket.

Lightweight, highly compressible down layers that perform as well breaking trail on cross-country skis as they do layering on multi-day treks, the lightweight Men’s Transcendent Hoody™ and the Women’s Sonata Hooded Down Jacket™ are filled with 650 fill power goose down, classic lightweight down hooded jackets canada goose bomber, black canada goose , north face, canada goose jacket uk, canada goose sale uk, kids canada goose, canada goose london, canada goose outlet, moncler jacket.
So now we know down is warm but doesn’t do well in wet or humid conditions. Enter synthetic insulation. Synthetic insulation is designed to replicate the qualities of down, but retain them even when wet. It’s made with polyester fibers that are arranged in differently sized filaments and intertwined, mimicking down’s lofty clusters. These ultrafine fibers trap warmth in air pockets, providing great warmth… though not quite as good as down. In addition, synthetic insulation has a slightly higher weight-to-warmth ratio than down, meaning it needs to be heavier to achieve the same warmth as down. The upside to synthetic insulation is that it is much more resistant to moisture, and when it does get wet it dries faster; Synthetic insulation can often dry within a day—maybe even hours—if put in the sun or on a windy day. Synthetic insulation also tends to be friendly on the wallet and is naturally hypoallergenic.
canada goose london Our Men’s and Women’s Cathode Jackets™ is one of our favorites. A winner of 2014 Outside Magazine Gear of the Year Award, this lightweight hybrid jacket has Schoeller® underarm side panels and strategically placed lightweight, water-resistant 60g PrimaLoft® One synthetic insulation. The insulation is layered underneath a super-lightweight Pertex® Quantum outer. This hybrid construction allows the versatile Cathode to function across a wide range of activity levels, from high-output climbing to standing still and scanning the peaks across a windy, damp ridgeline.
Designed especially to shed heat when you’re moving, but still keep you warm when you stop—whether it’s too down some calories or rip off your skins—the Men’s and Women’s Uberlayer Hoody is a water-resistant and highly compressible active insulation jacket for when you’re working hard. Polartec® Hi-Pile Alpha Insulation inside a 30D stretch woven nylon shell means the Uberlayer moves easily with you, whether you’re pushing hard through a ski tour or giving your all high on an alpine route.
Even lighter but just as breathable as the Uberlayer is the brand new Ascendant Hooded Jacket for men and women. It uses revolutionary Polartec Alpha Direct insulation, increasing airflow by removing the need for an interior jacket liner. The Insulation is designed to interface directly with your base layer kids canada goose, canada goose london, canada goose outlet, moncler jacket, womens canada goose jacket, canada goose jacket sale, Canada Goose Black Friday, canada goose sale.
One of our most revolutionary piece: The Diode Hooded Jacket, for men and women, combines the best features of both down and synthetic insulation in a single jacket. The body’s stuffed with 70% DWR-treated down/30% PrimaLoft® blend of insulation that traps heat even in nasty conditions, while the highly exposed shoulders, hood, and waist are stuffed with 100% PrimaLoft® Gold insulation, so the areas most likely to get damp will still keep insulating.
canada goose outlet I remember when I was shopping around for a Canada Goose last year I was scouring the internets for reviews and explanations of the difference between their line of jackets. So today I wanted to bring a comprehensive review of the two most popular jackets that Canada Goose carries and tell you what I like, what I don’t and which one I want to keep!
I’ve had my Shelburne parka for a little over a year now and I love it (you can see my video review HERE). I’m so happy with my purchase and I seriously look forward to wearing it every day during the winter. I love the color, the style and everything in-between. I loved it so much that I thought I wanted to get another one — a red one more specifically so I recently snagged the Trillium Parka. Let me share my thoughts!
(I’m wearing a MEDIUM in both jackets and I’m 5’6!)
Pros for the Trillium:
moncler jacket The Warmth – this jacket can keep you warm in – 15-degree heat and it’s the warmest jacket Canada Goose makes. It’s actually made for you to wear in the Arctic and survive. So props to how warm it is! Now do I need something this warm in New York City? Probably not. But do I want it? Duh.
The Hood – Not only is it super warm and perfect to keep the wind and rain out of your face, but it’s also huge. Sometimes too big (like can’t see anything because it’s in your face big) but it’s adjustable so you can fix just about anything. The very best part though (and why it made it on the pro list) is the hood is completely detachable. You can zipper the hood and the fur off — all separately. So when you don’t want it around, it doesn’t have to be!
The Pockets – There are two sets of pockets on this jacket, as well as one on the inside. The top pockets around the chest are fleece lined and super warm while the pockets by your hips are huge and can hold just about anything. Sometimes it’s nice to have all that pocket space!
Cons for the Trillium:
womens canada goose jacket The Shape – This was one of the biggest drawbacks for me… it was just so extremely boxy. The jacket does have drawstrings on the inside to clinch the waist but it doesn’t totally help. I worry that I got the wrong size but when it’s buttoned, I don’t think I could go smaller. It honestly felt like a unisex jacket and I think the pictures show just how much bigger it is than the Shelburne.
The Sleeves (can sometimes be a pro) – One of my favorite things about the Canada Goose jackets is the fact they have this tight black part of the sleeve around your wrist so the wind doesn’t come up your arms. On the other jacket they come a little longer than my wrists but on this Trillium jacket, they come to my knuckles! It just seems to me that they’re a bit too long. But others can find this a good thing, so to each their own goose coats, canada goose jackets, canada goose mens jacket, canada goose bomber, black canada goose , north face, canada goose jacket uk, canada goose sale uk.
The Bulkiness – This might just be repetitive of the two above since they both contribute to this problem, but the jacket is just too much jacket. You can see it in the photos above, especially when I am turned to the side, how thick this jacket is. I thought it was worth a mention just how wide the sleeves are around the hands. I swear I could fit two arms in the hole — this just once again adds to the overall shape and bulkiness of the jacket.
Pros for the Shelburne:
canada goose jacket sale The Warmth – While it’s not as warm as the Trillium, it’s still the warmest coat I have ever owned. I can wear this out all day in the winter and be totally fine. Honestly one of the best winter purchases I have made! Since is meant to only keep you warm is -5 weather, I find it’s still perfect for New York.
The Length – I love the length of this jacket. It hits a little above my knees where the trillium hits about mid-thigh. Both are great in terms of length but when I sit with the Shelburne, I find it completely covers the bum and therefore makes everything warmer.
The Shape/Structure – Opposite of the Trillium, it has a great shape to it. MUCH more fitted and feminine. Also, a huge difference is that the jacket is also quilted so I think that adds another layer to the overall fitted structure. It even has two back flaps that I use when it gets too hot or when I just want a little extra wiggle room.
Cons for the Shelburne:
Canada Goose Black Friday The Hood – One of the only major cons about this jacket is the fact that it doesn’t have a removable hood. You can remove the fur but not the hood itself. This is good for someone who loses things easily but not so great for those who want it detach it.
The Pockets – I didn’t realize until I tried out the Trillium how much I liked having two sets of pockets. The Shelburne only has one set around the hips — which are fleece lined so that’s nice they are always extra warm. We can’t have it all can we?
I love the Canada Goose Jackets and there is seriously not a warmer coat out there. My favorite thing about the jackets (that both have) is the internal backpack straps so you can keep your coat on you while remaining hands-free. You’d be surprised how many times I use them! You really can’t go wrong with either jacket shown here.
My Pick: The Shelburne
canada goose uk I love it and I continue to love it every day! I think I’m going to return my Trillium jacket because I don’t really love the overall fit and I expect to truly love such an expensive jacket!
I actually love the Trillium on you! I have the Shelburne as well and I love it! On the subway, I’m almost TOO hot in it, so I don’t think the Trillium is for me either BUT you definitely had me thinking about it for a minute canada goose parka, canada goose mens, canada goose coat, moncler, canada goose womens, canada goose coats, goose coats, canada goose jackets, canada goose mens jacket 😉
There are also a ton of great types of jackets Canada Goose offers. To see a general overview, I think Tuckernuck put together a really great guide to learn the differences in all the coats. You can see that HERE or by clicking the images below. Snapshots of the two jackets are also below:
canada goose jacket hi, krista…i have a size question. what size pants are you, i.e. do you have big hips or narrow? what size jacket did you buy? I’ve heard that they are quite narrow in the hip area…do you find that ? was the trillium larger in the hips?
