This season, Canada Goose and Want Les Essentiels are partnering for the first time on a four-piece collection, named after the cardinal directions of the compass.

This limited-edition “Cardinal Collection” includes four versatile styles: a rain jacket, backpack, waist pack, and cap, designed to complement one another. Adaptable and versatile, these pieces are meant to navigate through a range of weather conditions. All four items fit together and function as a system.

The E90 Backpack, which retails for $695, is Canada Goose’s first-ever backpack. It’s water-resistant and designed to carry everyday essentials, including a 15” laptop. The N00 Jacket, which retails for $850, is a unisex waterproof rainwear piece that packs into its hood and can be clipped onto the E90 Backpack when not in use. The W270 Waist pack, which retails for $325, is another first for Canada Goose, is a hands-free savior that can be adjusted and worn across the body or around the waist. Finally, the water-resistant S180 Cap, which retails for $150, is designed to be clipped onto both the W270 Waist pack and the E90 Backpack.

Canada Goose x Want Les Essentiels will be available starting August 21st in select Canada Goose stores, at Want Apothecary stores, and online.
