Oh Canada Goose, no.
The most-controversial outerwear brand in North America — if not the entire world — just released a new product that’s getting people all riled up, and this time it has nothing to do with allegations of animal cruelty.
Behold the “Toronto Jacket“: A $1,495 parka designed specifically for the climate of Canada’s largest city — and by “climate” I’m talking both environmental and political.
This is so fucked up. For reals, Canada Goose designed a coat with reflective fabric for better visibility for pedestrians because they keep getting run over by cars on Toronto streets#Toronto https://t.co/lr9x3VjTjG

“Toronto Jacket is a versatile 3-in-1,” reads the item’s description on Canada Goose’s website.
“When the down-filled outer shell and lightweight down inner shell are worn together they’re warm enough for a Toronto winter’s harshest days, while the removable inner shell is a flexible layering essential.”
