Pajar History & Brand Reputation
Pajar is a very famous brand in the field of Footwear & Outerwear manufacturing and retailing business. Pajar was started by Paul Golbert in 1963 in Montreal (the second most populous city in Canada) as a shoe manufacturing company. Paul was born in the family of a shoemaker and this was his family business.
Paul lived with his wife Jacques and his son Richel and the name of the company is taken from the first latter of all of the three members and named Pajar.
Golbert became a famous shoemaker in the state when he started importing Spanish, French, and Italian footwear and established his first showroom in 1967.

Earlier Canada Goose only produced woolen vests, raincoats, and snowmobile suits until it became an expert in down-filled jackets. Later on, they mainly focused on manufacturing down-filled coats, and heavy-duty parkas, for municipal and government authorities.
Currently, the company reported rapid growth in the past years and expanding its services to more countries.

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
- Seam Sealed premium waterproof leather.
- Premium Material like waxy nubuck, velvet suede, full-grain leather & Ballistic nylon is used in shoes.
- Oslo Après-Ski Collection is crafted using genuine fur upper, which is taken from rabbits, foxes, goats.
- Latest hydro repellent leather construction in jackets and shoes.
Canada Goose (Material & Manufacture)
Canada Goose products are made of down, fur, wool, polyester, and Nylon. The main source of down is mature geese although duck down is also part of some of their products.
Pajar claims to use fox-based fur on the hoods of their jacket-making with ethical and sustainable practice, 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 taking footsteps to go ahead to use more natural and recycled materials in its manufacturing units. Their aim is to become RDS verified by the end of 2021.
They use natural down to manufacture all of their products. Natural down that is used in the Canada Goose manufacturing unit is a by-product of the Canada Poultry Industry. Natural Down is biodegradable and is the natural source to make outerwear warm by keeping them lightweight.
Where To Buy Pajar Products?
You can purchase Pajar shoes and outerwear just by 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 offers a limited lifetime warranty on its all products to its original owner. A lifetime warranty doesn’t mean your lifetime, due to the highest quality material and craftsmanship, most probably their products will last for several years.
Canada Goose Vs. Pajar: 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 for your favorite pet.
