The Chilliwack Bomber
Developed as a nod to post-war bush pilots in Canada’s north, the Chilliwack Bomber provides the durability, warmth, and mobility that these pilots needed when working on Arctic runways. An enduringly popular and iconic style, the Chilliwack is one of Canada Goose’s most beloved jackets.

We use coyote fur around the hoods on our jackets because it never freezes, doesn’t hold water, and the uneven hair lengths create a windbreak that protects exposed skin, helping to reduce heat loss from the face. This holds as true in urban environments as much as it does in the high Arctic. Fur has been used consistently for hundreds of years as cold weather protection. Our jackets are made to keep people warm, anywhere.
The Thermal Experience Index
Canada Goose developed the Thermal Experience Index (TEI) to help you find the warmth you want for the experience you seek in each of our products. Whether you need a lightweight jacket for active pursuits or a field-tested parka for the coldest places on earth, this five-point system is designed to help you make the right selection from our expansive collections.
The Chilliwack Bomber has a TEI rating of 3: Fundamental (-10° to -20°). It offers fundamental warmth fashioned for everyday use.
The World's Best Insulator
Canada Goose has over 40 years of industry-leading understanding of down insulation technology, which allows us to choose the best blends of down to suit the specific requirements of each of our jackets. All of our blends include some Hutterite down, among the most premium Canadian down available. Its ability to retain more warm air than other types of down results in lighter weight jackets that don’t sacrifice warmth.
