Material & Manufacture
Here, I’m going to discuss the quality of the material and durability of some of their most famous product line-up.
What Material Does Pajar Use in Its Shoe Manufacturing Unit?
The shoe collection of Pajar is the perfect example of creativity and artisan craftsmanship. Their most popular shoe lineup is the Heritage Canada collection. Pajar uses the finest grade genuine leather imported from Italy. The shoes are waterproof and able to keep your foot warm at -40°C temperature.
If you want to walk light then Pajar lightweight jacket is for you. 100% Nylon built, crafted with 2 layers and water repellent coating makes it perfect for your next trip. The most commonly used material in their jackets are Nylon, Polyester, and Polyurethane is used in its rain jackets.
Some highlighted features of Pajar Manufacturing

- Oslo Après-Ski Collection is crafted using genuine fur upper, which is taken from rabbits, foxes, and goats.
- Latest hydro-repellent leather construction in jackets and shoes.
Canada Goose (Material & Manufacture)
Canada Goose utilizes some common materials such as down, fur, polyester, and Nylon but it also invented Artic Tech Fabric to tackle the extreme cold conditions of this earth without losing comfort and cozy.
Pajar claims to use fox-based fur on the hoods of their jacket-making with ethical and sustainable practices, Although they also claim to use real leather in their manufacturing unit which means the sustainable practice of Pajar is questionable.
I don’t find any strong sign of sustainability in Pajar products, but Canada Goose is verified by some of the most veteran environment-conscious institutes such as R.D.S (Responsible Down Standard) in 2021, It became the partner of bluesign system in 2019.
Canada Goose has developed some sustainable materials such as Kind Fleece which is ultra-soft and breathable. Recycled Arctic Tech so that the wearer feels cozy and remains warm in extreme winter conditions.
Where To Buy Pajar Products?
You can purchase Pajar shoes and outerwear just from their official website and from their local retail stores. Pajar currently has two retail stores :
1. Premium Outlets Montréal
2. Toronto Premium Outlets (Halton Hills)
Where To Buy Canada Goose Products?
You can purchase Canada Goose products either from their online website or from their retail stores.
Currently, they have more than 40 retail stores worldwide.
I found the Pajar collection of shoes, jackets, and other accessories are much cheaper than what you will get in Canada Goose. Affordable but premium build quality you will get in Pajar.
Their products are categorized from budget to the premium segment and are built using high-quality fabric, and genuine leather, and according to the product types, material, and features the price goes up from a few dollars to 5 to 6 hundred dollars.
Canada Goose is a much more high-end brand, in terms of quality and price. The avg price of their outerwear is going from $600 to thousands of dollars.
Pajar offers 6 months of warranty on their shoes and 1 year of warranty on their outerwear. You can return or exchange the defective or size mismatched product within 30 days of purchase.
Canada Goose products are expensive and made of high-quality material and craftsmanship. Canada Goose offers a limited lifetime warranty to its products that are purchased from an Authorised retailer.
Which Brand Is Best For Me?
Now it’s time to clarify which brand is best for whom and in which conditions.
The Pajar shoe section is marvelous on the other hand Canada Goose has very limited shoes for men and women. You can get some trendy, fashionable, and durable shoes at a very affordable price in Pajar.
I personally like the Canada Goose Jacket collection. They are made of premium materials with expert craftsmanship. Canada Goose jackets can withstand severe weather conditions. Choose Canada Goose if you live in extreme weather conditions or planning to explore some coldest places in the world.
Choose Pajar jackets if you want some stylish and elegant jackets at a very affordable price.
Pajar has a wide range of products not only for men and women but also for your baby and your favorite pet.
