Why Outdoor Survival Canada?
HANDMADE IN CANADA
All of our winter parkas are handmade in Canada by our own skilled artisans. We take pride in manufacturing the entire OSC collection in our own factory; this means that no OSC product is produced offshore or even elsewhere in Canada. This approach enables us to consistently uphold the highest quality standards during handmade production and translates into an exclusive product, not sold by the masses, rather by select retailers.
Our collection is the warmest available with all of our parkas rated for -40C/F, yet also suitable for milder winter conditions as premium Down naturally moderates body temperature. How it works? It has been scientifically proven that Down is the best insulator in the world. It has the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any insulator (natural or synthetic). Through researching the performance of Down in extreme conditions, OSC has developed a proprietary blend of premium Goose and Duck Down that maximizes warmth within the least amount of space.
Our outershell is made from a proprietary fabric called Entrax® that is waterproof, windproof, breathable and stain resistant. Entrax® is backed by a waterproof membrane (not just a spray that will wash off) so it will last for the life of the jacket. We also have sealed all critical seams on the jacket (e.g. shoulder, back, hood) for added waterproof protection. These waterproof features are a key differentiator as most Down coats are only water resistant.
Our parkas are constructed with Entrax800®, a proprietary lining that is fused with a membrane backing, making it moisture wicking and breathable.
Our outshell is made from Entrax®, a proprietary fabric that is windproof, waterproof and breathable, therefore providing extra protection from the elements.
Down is the best insulator in the world as proven by scientific studies. Through researching the performance of Down in extreme conditions, OSC has developed a proprietary blend of premium Goose and Duck Down that maximizes warmth within the least amount of space.
Our entire collection is machine-washable. See Care Instructions for specific washing instructions.
