Canada Goose Hybridge Lite Hoody-7

I packed my Canada Goose Hybridge Lite Hoody and recently took it to Winnipeg, returning it home so to speak — the lightweight, technical down shell is manufactured in Winnipeg. The facility, opened five years ago, is housed in the historic location first built in 1916 for the Stovel Printing Company.

Canada Goose continues to expand with an additional factory and headquarters in Toronto to meet increasing global demand.

The jacket’s easy to pack into a suitcase, folding down nice and compact. I also plan on taking it on flights along with an empty pillowcase, providing the ultimate down pillow on long hauls!

Winnipeg’s fall temperatures were perfect for this jacket: it’s created for the 5°C/-5°C sweet spot that typically defines Winnipeg between summer and winter. The Hybridge has a hood that zips tight around the head, protects against the wind with a couple of reflective strips back there to keep you visible on cool evening walks and bike rides.

The first thing I noticed when taking the jacket out of its box is how SOFT it feels! The slim cut has side material that moves along with you. At each wrist is a reinforced thumb hole. Two front side pockets and a left chest pocket keep essentials at hand.

I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this jacket with everything from skirts and leggings to jeans and boots. It’s water-resistant too.

The Hybridge Lite Hoody is also available in Red, Silverbirch (white) and Pacific Blue and retails for CDN $575. A similar model without the hood is also available.
