I'm looking for a new winter jacket. My area gets lowest 27 during winter so not that cold. I'm 5'5 and considering Canada Goose fusion fit option. Would it really worth the money? Or should I look for shell jackets by other brands?

Canada Goose is overkill for that mild of a winter



I usually go Arc’teryx Atom LT with a shell. My preference is to layer since each piece is useful in their own right and even more so together.


It definitely gets cold in the winter - not debilitatingly so but the low usually hovers around high 20s/low 30s. I’ve been very impressed by the insulation of the Atom. For the most part a long sleeve + Atom + shell with hat, scarf, and gloves is great. If it’s REALLY cold I might throw on a down vest to keep my core extra warm, but that’s why I advocate for layering anyway. A google search suggests the Atom is rated to ~38F, so I use shells and other layers to I need more than that.

27 degrees in the day or at night?


Marmont is worth it
