Winner announced: Congratulations to Instagram user @Juliesemplonius on winning her choice of Mia Melon Jacket! The winner was contacted on February 1st. 

This winter, Canadian weather has been quite fickle. It jumps from Springtime mild to below -20 temperatures real quick. Thanks to El Niño, we still have days where we’re stuck in between cold and warm weather, that weird period of time when you can’t decide whether to wear a thick winter jacket or a lightweight coat.

Luckily, no one knows what outwear is best for Canadians (even in unpredictable conditions,) better than the Canadians behind Mia Melon. Designed in Vancouver, British Columbia and Portland, Oregon, Mia Melon outerwear is designed to withstand all of the elements, taking outdoor apparel technologies and giving them a fashionable twist. Each jacket is specially coated in DWR, making it waterproof and a special membrane bonded in-between the fabrics makes it waterproof and windproof. On extra chilly days, add an extra layer underneath your Mia Melon and you’re ready to face the cold! Our favourites include the Everglades, the Nomad and the Wanderer.

Simply stated, Mia Melon knows Canadian weather and are well on their way to becoming the best at what they do, but they need your help! They are currently running a Kickstarter campaign for the launch of the ultimate commuting jacket for men and women. Built for every occasion, from hiking and snowboarding to school and work, the new Commuter jacket features a weatherproof design, removable hood, zip ventilations, reflective flip sleeves and more. Every person who backs their campaign will receive a Commuter jacket at a huge discount. Learn more about the campaign here.
