I mean, it's pretty obvious. He's travelling 10,703,437.5 kilometres an hour, so windproof is an absolute must. Additionally, at least half of the globe is covered in snow and he's doubtless going to be whipping through some pretty fierce blizzards (or rain, in Blighty), so waterproof is a premium.

To make a long story short, our research has determined
Oh yeah, he's stylin'.
that he's probably wearing the Outdoor Research Maximus Jacket. It's candy-apple red (thanks for the tip, Beach Boys), and features 'extra stretch in key areas' (probably important, based on Santa's silhouette).
Anyway, stylish outerwear aside, there's a more important point: Santa's magic sleigh gets him where he needs to be at just the right time, but we'd hate for you to travel in to our stores and find out that they're closed. So, here are our holiday hours:
25 - Christmas day: CLOSED!
26 - Boxing day: Still closed!
27 - Saturday: 9 am to 5 pm
28 - Sunday: 9 am to 5 pm (extra long hours!)
29 - 30: normal trading hours
31 - New Year's Eve: 9:30 am to 4 pm (early closing).
1 - New Year's Day: closed
If you really want to find us during those times, you can try and track us down at the mountains or bushlands somewhere (not at home, though; that'd be creepy.) Other than that, we'll see you for business as usual after the holidays!
