For all Montrealers, we are pretty much the same, we dread this cold weather, except of course for those who love to ski or snowboard or enjoy any snow type activity. Listen, I love a great snowshoeing activity and yes I love to get on the slopes, but if I were to chose between living in a warm climate or here, I would live in a warm climate. How perfect would Montreal be if we were just a little south, I'm thinking a bit more south than Washington, that way, yes we have our 4 seasons, but no silly -29s like we had yesterday. (I thank the inventors of heated seats every day...I also thank my wonderful garage on days like those.)
Anyways, too bad for us, we're stuck here, so what do we do? We stock up on winter gear. Have you noticed the "Winter Uniform"? I can't even tell you how many people I know who wear the same winter uniform... You know what I'm talking about - Oh yes. That CANADA GOOSE! and.... let's not forget.. the SORELS! One can argue that these are the warmest items to get and that no one can think of living without either one of them. I agree. They are quite warm and Im even considering the idea of getting myself one once I have enough moula moula to invest into a great coat. The one I chose is the Mystique - see image below. Canada Goose wearers have become their own community. Got Goose? should be their slogan (unless milk has some kind of trademark on it). But seriously, Goosers (as I like to call them) set themselves a part from the rest of the winter dreading community. You either are part of the gang or you are part of the others. No other winter coat has been able to get to this degree. Great marketing on their behalf. It has become cool to look oversize. Go figure.

|The "COOL" Sorel boots (the ones I want!)|
UPDATE! (Jan 19) : I bought the boots! Went into Sports Experts at the Place Vertu (who goes there anyways!) and to my surprise, they had my size left and even gave me a discount, so instead of paying the Browns Shoes price ($180), I paid $140! Woot Woot, Go me!
And you guys think that there is a Canada Goose + Sorel overload? Do you own any? What's your review on the product? Are they actually as warm as they say they are? And if you own something else, what is it and does that keep you warm enough? Let us know. We're cold. We need answers!!!
Hope you're enjoying your winter!!
