Cozy Canadian Things: Part 2 October 28 2012
In a continuation of my blog post from a few weeks ago, I thought it was prudent to follow up with Part 2 of Cozy Canadian things.
Also, in some very exciting news Trunk Studio has been accepted in to the IDS 2013 show in Toronto. Come check us out at Studio North: Canada's platform for emerging designers, artisans and independent studios. Show takes place January 24-27 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Okay, now let's talk cozy.
1. Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber. This jacket is the 'bomb' so to speak. Worn by pilots who work on arctic runways, this beauty can certainly keep you cozy during the coldest winter days.
2. Laughing Whale Coffee. Every impending snowstorm requires a warm 'cuppa' to get you revved up for the joy of snow shoveling. The coffee from Lunenberg's laughing whale should do just the trick. Oh yes, and they are also 100% organic and fair trade certified! I get my cup every week at the Halifax Seaport Market.
3. Mountain Equipment Co-Op Hut Booties. These miraculous little booties got me through cold nights while tree planting in Northern Ontario. Down filled awesome that I have with me to this day.
4. Tilley Aviator Hat. Ears and toes are always the first to succumb to frostbite. Not only is this hat quintessentially Canadian but it also has some great features. Two sets of ear flaps; one for hearing the other for keeping extra warm. The hat is guaranteed for life. Secret pocket in the crown to store your valuables. This is the hat that just keeps on giving.
5. The North Face ABS Jacket. This is the ultimate piece of winter gear. It may not necessarily keep you cozy but it will keep you safe! Too amazing not to mention. Originally designed to meet the needs of hardworking ski patrollers, this vest deploys air canisters and has airbags to keep you near the surface of an avalanche.
