Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber Features:
Initially designed and developed for post-war Canadian bush pilots flying essential supplies into remote areas of the Canadian North, the Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber still provides the durability, warmth and mobility that these pilots needed when working in extremely harsh conditions on Arctic runways. With timeless bomber design and popular and iconic style, the Chilliwack Bomber is one of Canada Goose’s most beloved jackets. Thanks to its high quality down insulation this has a TEI Rating of 3/5 making good for temperatures in the -10°C to -20°C range, along with comfortable fit and assorted pockets this jacket is a great favourite well beyond the Canadian Arctic.
The quality and attention to detail is superb. I went for the Chilliwack because it is a bomber style jacket and
being in and out of a car it fitted in with what is practical for me. The jacket is like a furnace when it's on
and I have no fears about going out in the cold stuff with this. The zip is so chunky you almost need to be a
weightlifter to operate it, so I can't see that ever failing. The hood adjusts nicely and is capacious to say the least.
The internal pocket is a good size, but maybe could do with a fastener to stop any items falling out, and the
exterior ones are also very well finished. Two fleece lined hand warmer pockets finish things off very nicely.
Finally, the cuffs and hem are very cosy and ensure that no draughts will intrude easily. I know it has a
DWR waterproof finish over the outer but I will just have to see how it holds up to British rain.
It is designed for the snow obviously but this doesn't detract from it at all in my opinion
Excellent bomber jackets, extremely warm more than capable with coping with a British winter, the jacket it self feels high quality. And superb customer service from ld mountain centre.
