Wilderness Supply Co. Brings Out the Best in Jackets for the Winter Season

Winnipeg, MB — CANADIANS KNOW WINTER. For half our year, we brave daily temperatures that would render most people immobile with little more than a stereotypical "bit nippy out there today, eh?” - but we don't do it unprepared.

That’s why Winnipeg outdoor gear store Wilderness Supply Company has brought in the best in winter parkas from brands like The North Face and Mountain Hardwear—including their warmest jacket yet, the North Face Himalayan Parka.

The North Face Summit Series of parkas have been athlete tested on Himalayan expeditions.  North Face promotes the series as “apparel designed to withstand the planet’s harshest environments”—which sounds exactly like a Winnipeg winter.

Wilderness Supply is confident jackets like the Himalayan Parka are exactly what chilly Winnipeggers need—and are inviting locals to try the jacket themselves at their 623 Ferry Road store.  “If it’s good enough for Everest, it’s good enough for Winnipeg,” says store owner and manager Rick Shone, “we welcome any skeptical hockey parents to come try it for themselves.”

Wilderness Supply Company is a Winnipeg outdoor store supplying a broad range of winter parkas, hats and mitts designed to stay toasty even on the coldest winter days.   If you’re of the perpetually cold variety—or if you just need to replace your ratty old coat with something a little more reliable—stop by Wilderness Supply at 623 Ferry Road or call 204-783-9555.
