5 Easy Steps: How to Store Your Canada Goose Parka Jacket

Even though it might feel as though it might stretch through eternity, winter season is soon coming to an end. It’s important to store your Canada Goose parka jacket during the warmer months, as keeping your coat compressed for a long period of time will reduce its ability to protect you from the cold.

To help preserve your expensive jacket for years to come, simply follow these 5 easy steps.

1. Clean Your Parka Before Storing

Make sure you store your down-filled parka jacket in the cleanest condition possible. The natural materials in Canada Goose products are sensitive to chemicals, which means exposure to dirt, sweat and oils will degrade the fabrics over time. Please refer to the product care label on your garment for specific wash care instructions. If you need to use a dry cleaner, make sure to find someone experienced in dealing with down and fur products.

2. Remove the Fur and Hang it Vertically

To allow the hide and hairs free movement, try to remove the fur and hang it vertically.

3. Hang Parka on a Wide Hanger

Let your parka hang freely on a wide hanger and store it in a dark, moisture-free environment. You can also try putting two hangers in the jacket to give it a little more support. Plenty of high quality natural wood hangers can be found on Amazon.

4. Protect Your Jacket With a Breathable Garment Bag

To protect your Canada Goose jacket from dust, dirt and sunlight, make sure to use a breathable garment bag. If you don’t have one at home, you can find breathable clothing covers in every color of the rainbow on Amazon.

5. Hang Your Canada Goose Coat in a Moisture-Free Environment

Don’t compress your Canada Goose jacket into a crammed space, and make sure to store it in a moisture-free environment. While sunlight can fade your jacket during storage, moisture is paradise to a bug.
