I have been wearing Toronto Parka for the past several years and finally decided to pull the trigger after buying another 3 parkas (another one for myself and 2 for my wife). They worth absolutely every penny. Best option for Canadian winters.
We always wear them when going to a park for prolong walking or anywhere else when its cold and get tons of compliments.
My only regret was not buying them sooner! Can't wait for my kids to get older so I can buy them a really good Canadian made jacket!
Best thanks to everyone at Arctic Bay team. Keep up the good work!
In anticipation of another Winter with -40 degree temperatures, I ordered a Montreal Parka. Although the temperatures where I live have not yet dropped low enough to test the parka to it's fullest potential, it's one of the warmest parkas I've ever worn and I have no doubt it'll keep me warm throughout the entire Winter. I'm 5' 8'' (173cm) tall and the medium size fits perfectly. The parka was comfortable enough to wear in my car while driving for a little over an hour. Unlike some other jackets/parks I've worn in the past, the higher temperatures inside my car and indoors did not cause me to sweat or start burning up.
I purchased the parka about a week before the 15% sale, so I'm a little annoyed that I missed out on those savings. That being said, the parka was, in my opinion, a good deal before the sale and is an amazing deal with the sale.
I have been looking for a Canadian made winter jacket for a long time. I was considering Canada Goose, but a friend recommended me to look at Arctic Bay's Canadian made jackets. He had already purchased one from Arctic Bay, and had previously owned a Canada Goose.
I'm so thankful for his recommendation, the Arctic Bay jacket feels more sturdy, better made and the attention to detail is really good. Not to mention, it cost less, especially with the pre-season 15% discount and free shipping, Yay!
I highly recommend Arctic Bay, the jackets are exactly as advertised and shipped quickly!!!
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.
This whole transaction takes back couple months..
I have many evidences but only four pics could be uploaded, so i cant provide much more for now.
I received alaska parka which was dirty and i found invoice papers of previously purchased inside the left jacket pocket.
That invoice showed that the jacket was once sold to someone back in 2017 and was returned. So i emailed arctic bay with pictures but they replied saying it was a brand-new jacket, which was a lie. Its very hard to get in contact with them. You guys can see the screen shot of emails i sent them provided below.
Everytime i tried calling them.. the same guy picks up the phone, just asks for my order number and tells me that someone will reach me through email and hangs up. He doesnt even give me chance to explain whats going on and just hangs up while i'm talking. After few phone calls, i guess he recongized my number and started to not answer my calls. So i had to call with different phone number just to be connected with him again which was no help.. very rude guy..
If anyone from arctic bay sees this.. please get back to me because im still waiting on my return shipment fees.. RMA#1267
Wrong jacket was shipped by mistake. We accepted return with full refund and reimbursed return shipping fee. We are sorry that the process took a bit longer than expected.

This was one of my best purchases I've made in a really long time. The parka is made of high quality materials, and is so warm. I absolutely love the detail that put into the parka with the fur and leather trimmings. Great touch! I highly recommend this product.
Bought this parka for my significant other and she absolutely LOVED it! She has never complained about being cold again. The details on the coat are top notch! The leather trim was a great touch! Great product
This parka is exceptionally warm, comfortable and it has more features than any other parka I could find at a similar price. It's almost perfect. The only minor suggestions for improvement would be to change the closing mechanism of the exterior pockets from Velcro to snap or magnetic closures. The fabric of the wrist cuffs easily sticks to the Velcro when reaching inside the pocket. The second thing would be to change the orientation of the zipper on the internal pocket. The horizontal zipper is somewhat hard to close with only one hand because the inner lining isn’t rigidly anchored. The fabric must be held taut in order to close it. Overall, I'm very pleased and looking forward to sub-zero temperatures for many winters to come.
I can't say enough about my Arctic Bay winter parka! It's the warmest coat I've ever owned and the quality is superb! It's durable, yet light, warm and stylish at the same time. I have one that's just below the knee; I wanted that length because I wear lots of dresses instead of pants, so it keeps my legs warm. It's also water resistant and I find much of the time, cold is colder when it's wet and this coat completely sheilds me from the elements. The hood is nice and snug and deep enough to actually work properly- and it has fur trim! Also, I got an xs because I find that many winter coats just look bulky and this one is warm enough that I don't have to layer underneath and can, therefore, wear my acutal size and not feel frumpy and weighed down. This is something I will wear for years and years!!! Thank you so much!!!
