Fjällräven Barents vs Canada Goose Expedition Men's Parka Compared

For this week’s comparison review we will be doing two back to back articles, so we surely hope you’ll like them both.

They are all parka jackets for men and in the first one we will be looking at Fjällräven’s Barents parka versus the Expedition parka by Canada Goose.

As per usual, a short introduction of each brand is in order.

Canada Goose is a Canadian manufacturer of luxury outdoor clothing and it is also a recurring brand in our comparison reviews. They are responsible for renowned designs such as the Expedition parka, a design that was developed in the 1980s. Since then, they have created numerous outdoor sports clothing, which are mainly aimed at those who go through very harsh winters.

Another thing that bears mentioning is their work in helping to conserve the habitats of polar bears, along with Polar Bears International.

Fjällräven is a Swedish brand, so we are comparing two international brands today. They are one of the most renowned companies in the outdoor gear and clothing market. They have also created their own special fabrics, which are designed to withstand different conditions and fulfill different requirements.
