Opinion: What the heck is up with Lululemon's double parka for Team Canada 2022?

That's a lot of puffiness

Team Canada and Lululemon's Opening Ceremonies kit for Beijing 2022

Lululemon and Team Canada have revealed the uniform kit for Canadian athletes competing in the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, and since ragging on Olympic gear has become a sport in and of itself you'll be happy to learn that some of the pieces are just as hideous as you were hoping they might be.

I'll go no further than Exhibit A shown above, and let you dive into the rest of the collection on your own.

What we have here is the Opening Ceremony Uniform, a multi-layered parka/jacket thing that you can turn into a backpack, a scarf, a vest, and even a pillow. Honestly.

While athletes may look like Red Arctic Grimace escaped from McDonaldland during the opening ceremonies, they can breathe easy knowing that this outfit has "mesh construction for breathability," as well as "technology in the fabric to inhibit the growth of odour-causing bacteria," in case they start to grow some in there while walking around.

Have a look at the rest of the gear and decide for yourself if it's a yay or a nay.
