The Canada Goose Coats Sizing Guide
Unsure of what size you’ll need in Canada Goose coats? The brand’s coats are available in sizes 3XS to 2XL, and you can use the chart below to see how this corresponds with European sizing. You can also match general bust, waist and hip measurements in inches and centimeters to the brand’s sizing.
For example, if you typically wear a size 8-10 or a European size 40, you should buy your Canada Goose coat in a size M.
It is worth noting that for any coats that are cut to the label’s relaxed fit, we would recommend sizing down for everyday use.

How To Care For Your Canada Goose Coats
The best way to clean your Canada Goose coat will depend on the style you choose. Every coat will come with care label stitched into the interior and we recommend you follow each coat’s individual care instructions.
Generally most of the brand’s raincoats should not be dry cleaned and can be machine washed cold with mild detergent on a gentle cycle. Parkas with down and fur around the hood trim are dry clean only, while down coats without fur should not be dry cleaned and can be machine washed cold on a gentle cycle.
- What different fits do Canada Goose coats come in?
Canada Goose coats come in a regular, slim, relaxed or fusion fit:
• Regular Fit: Coats in the label’s regular fit are an ideal layering option and are a balance between the slim and relaxed fit.
• Slim Fit: The slim fit is more of an athletic cut, and will fit closer to the body. The slim fit maximizes mobility and maintains core warmth.
• Relaxed Fit: As Canada Goose's largest fit, these coats have been developed for layering in extreme weather.
• Fusion Fit: Developed by a global team of apparel experts, the fusion fit was created following analysis of 26 key body measurements and more than 16,000 scans. Designed for smaller body frames, this fit has a shorter sleeve length, shorter hem and smaller hood proportions.
- How can I tell if my Canada Goose coat is authentic?
There is a hologram sewn into every Canada Goose coat as proof of authenticity, and the hologram was designed to be complex and hard for counterfeiters to reproduce. Fake Canada Goose coats are made with low-quality materials and will not offer protection from the elements.
Canada Goose also offers authentication within 30 days of purchase for all products bought from one of the brand’s authorized retailers.
- Are Canada Goose coats waterproof?
Although not all Canada Goose coats are waterproof, there are certain styles that are. All of the brand’s raincoats are made from a breathable Tri-Durance fabric, which is built to withstand heavy downpours and harsh winds. Certain coats and parkas are crafted from a water-resistant GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ fabric to keep warmth in and light precipitation out.
