The Alaska parka is well made and a perfect fit even though I am vertically challenged with a small built. I haven't had a chance to test it in very cold weather but I bet it will beat the ubiquitous Canada Goose in the same price range. The shipping process was a bit tricky since I was given an UPS tracking number without regular update. Daniel on the phone, however, quickly sorted the tracking out and the parka arrived promptly. I support Canadian made products and I'd recommend it to anyone.
