A Short Nobis History

Nobis and Canada Goose have a common history. The founder of Nobis, Robin Yates, worked for Canada Goose as their Vice President for quite some time. He left for new ventures in 2006 and started Nobis in 2007.
The goal of Nobis was to create a lighter jacket and better version of what modern customers wanted in form, function and style. A notable Nobis feature is a magnetic fastening pocket that reduces the clunky performance of Velcro. Nobis is most famous for its parkas ...and jackets but has also expanded its inventory to include hats, scarves, vests, hoodies and more.
Nobis is a performance and comfort-oriented company offering a sophisticated collection of clothing. They utilize technical innovations and performance fabrics to craft offerings that are both thoroughly modern and completely timeless. Nobis has also committed to ethically sourcing Canadian down, which is purchased under strict guidelines.
