In the market for a winter jacket? Something that keeps you warm, but also look stylish.Then take a look at Canada Goose HyBridge Jacket.
Canada Goose HyBridge Jacket is a down and soft shell hybrid jacket that puts the down where I want it (primarily my chest and back) and uses a PolarTec softshell material for places that insulation doesn't make as much sense, like in the arms and shoulders. The revolutionary HyBridge line with Thermal Mapping Technology™ leverages our expertise in insulation. We place premium Canadian Hutterite white duck down shields over gender-specific body areas to create warmth while still ensuring outstanding flexibility and performance. It’s a design strategy that will set a whole new standard in the outwear industry. Because the down shields are customized to insulate exactly where you need it most, the HyBridge Jacket will instantly become your go-to choice for active living, whether you’re skiing, hiking, or taking a brisk walk on a cool day.
The HyBridge Jacket has a contoured fit and allows for a few thin midlayers under it. If you are looking for a loose fitting shell to pile several layers under, the HyBridge is not meant for you. Canada Goose designed it to limit the bulkiness and free your movement for unimpeded pole plants.
The softshell material Canada Goose uses is high quality as well. I'm a big fan of Polartec, and the HyBridge jacket uses a blend of 80% Polyester and 20% Polartec Power Shield O2 material with a durable water repellent finish for the soft shell portions, which cover the shoulders and arms. The shell that contains the down is ripstop nylon, also with a durable water repellent finish. The Power Shield O2 serves to block the majority of wind while still allowing the jacket to breathe. It also feels like it will be relatively resistant to tear and abrasion. The lining behind the down covered portions of the HyBridge jacket is a really soft material made from recycled polyester, with a weave that is down proof so that the jacket doesn't leak feathers. It also has a durable water repellent finish. Behind the soft-shell portions of the HyBridge is a really soft fleece material.
Canada Goose didn't stop at Thermal Mapping Technology with the HyBridge jacket, however... this thing is packed with features. As an added bonus, the features are meaningful and not simply marketing gimmicks. First off, Canada Goose is famous for their down outerwear, and they use top-notch 750 fill-power Canadian Hutterite white duck down in the HyBridge jacket. The other thing to note is that Canada Goose sources their down from a company that does not harvest its feathers from live birds.
The Women's Canada Goose HyBridge Jacket is exactly what is needed for a lightweight jacket that keeps its warmth. Down to temperatures in the single digits, the HyBridge with afew thin mid layers kept its warmth.
As Canada Goose brags, movement in the torso, arms and shoulders feels natural. The athletic cut of the jacket keeps it in place and keeps your performance at its peak for taking aggressive turns in powder or that nasty human-made granular stuff.
