A high-tech twist on tradition, the Amenity is tailored to work in the middle of a classic base, mid-layer, shell system for multi-day mountain trips. As a mid-layer, it insulates the body from external cold and moves moisture from base layers to your outerwear. With its superb construction and cutting-edge fabrics, it rivals the performance of other garments found at twice the price.
The Polartec® Thermal Pro® fleece is a special bio-mimicry version with a surface texture inspired by the fur of artic animals. Longer, coarser "guard hairs" on the fabric create and maintain loft, interspersed with a dense "underfur" of microfibres that trap warm air.
- 100% Polartec High Loft Thermal Pro polyester fleece with an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio, superb moisture transfer, and excellent breathability.
- Side panels and underarms are Polartec Power Stretch® fleece for outstanding range of motion and breathability without the weight and bulk of zippered underarm vents.
- Two hand warmer pockets.
- One chest pocket.
- Shockcord hem prevents heat leaks.
- Seam-free shoulder tops for comfort when carrying a pack.
- Jacket has been tweaked for better fit, and cuffs added to prevent "bagging out" at the wrists.
The day you purchased your $5 MEC membership, you became part of a community that’s now four million members strong. You also became a shareholder in this Co-op. Your vote is both a right and a responsibility, and electing representatives you trust to provide informed oversight, passionate stewardship, and sound decision-making is an essential part of securing a vibrant future for MEC.
What you’re voting on
You choose the individuals you’d like to oversee your Co-op on the Board of Directors. Board members are the elected stewards of MEC, and serve three-year terms with the option to run again for a second term. Each year, members elect three candidates to sit on the Board.
Members also have the opportunity to vote on certain resolutions. Resolutions can provide direction to the Board, change our Rules of Co-operation, and affect the way we do business.
As a retail co-op, MEC is owned by its members and is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors elected by the membership. Our goal is strong and balanced leadership, and our nominations process helps us get there.
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
The nominations period for the 2017 election is now closed.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
We’re looking for people to run for our Board who possess the skills, experience and values needed for MEC to continue to grow and succeed in an increasingly competitive and complex retail environment. Three directors are elected annually and serve for a three-year term, with the option of running for a second term.
MEC’s Nominations Committee assesses all nominees to ensure they meet the minimum eligibility criteria. The Board must recommend between 4 and 9 of the candidates based on the extent to which they meet MEC’s current needs.
