Designed for outdoor discovery, the outerwear brand’s Travel Light collection is perfect for immersing yourself in nature with new perspective
Cities are fine, but have you tried the countryside? This is not some kind of anti-urban conspiracy that “outdoors” is always prefixed with “the big” or that green spaces are idealized as idyllic. The grass really is greener on the other side of your bedroom window, no matter how healthy your houseplants are.
However, it is difficult to know where to start. Not just in terms of location, but also what to wear. Luckily, Canada Goose‘s Travel Light collection has us covered and layered, and is suitable for budding adventurers and seasoned explorers alike. Whether the weather holds or decides to rain on your parade, you’ll stay dry and comfortable until the cows follow you home.
We tested the new collection as part of the Light Travel Series, which took three inner-city creatives — Michelle Li, YKA Alex, and YLA Alan — on an outdoor journey of discovery. Michelle Li, stylist, writer and creative director, has traded sleepless Manhattan Island for peaceful Staten Island, rummaging through Willowbrook Park and creating incense with the ingredients she discovered. “I really like being outdoors,” she said. “Something as simple as taking a hike in a forest or a walk in the park – it can just provide such an easy reset of everyday life.”
Models and influencers Alex and Alan Yu, meanwhile, swapped Instagram for instruments, learning to play the Vietnamese singing bowl for a physical body and soul reset. They were converted: “I could really feel the energy…I think I would consider doing more outdoor stuff because I really like the vibe.” All three wore the Canada Goose Travel Light collection from head to toe, preparing them for adventure.
While we associate certain hiking gear, namely what we wore during the harrowing experience of Bronze DofE, with feeling like we’ve been styled by the Michelin man, this collection is a different story: his outdoor gear. exterior are almost unbelievably light.
Michelle Li wore the Muskoka Crewneck for her incense workshop, topped with the Cyprus Vest to stay warm at sunset. Alex and Alan have mixed versatile vests, ideal for layering and wearing on their own, with practical accessories such as caps and bags. The Cypress vest, featuring a ventilated construction, is made from a wind-resistant, water-repellent and ultra-lightweight ‘Recycled Feather-Light Ripstop’, keeping you cool and guaranteeing unhindered movement. It’s also made from 100% recycled nylon, a sustainable approach to showing love for nature.
The Kenora Jacket, on the other hand, can be thrown over it without feeling bloated, thanks to its low TEI (Thermal Experience Index), making it ideal for sweat-free and stress-free summer hikes. Both pieces also fit in their own bag, meaning you can compete with the quick-change performer that is the Great British Summer.
Don’t be fooled by the breeze, though. Although featherweight, the Kenora and Cyprus are far from flimsy; as you’d expect from Canada Goose, the construction is impeccable, with responsibly sourced down ensuring they stand up to whatever summer throws at you, keeping you warm when needed. Plus, if you’re heading into colder climates, the Garson Vest and Freestyle Vest are made with ArcticTech cotton, allowing you to endure cooler conditions.
Slim yet sturdy, lightweight yet sturdy, it’s an adventurous collection that’s truly a joy to wear. Even if you’re a little averse to grass, these pieces are so easy to put on, you’ll become an orienteering anorak in no time. It’s the undisputed featherweight champion of outdoor gear, proving that lighter pieces can pack a punch.
