A vest that provides a lot of warmth for the core, without restricting the arms – or squeezing the wallet. Wear it in the chalet, or as an outer garment in spring or fall; slip it under other layers in winter.
- The shell and lining are made from 310-thread count, downproof nylon taffeta.
- Insulated with 575 fill-power duck down.
- Sewn-through construction.
- Shoulders are overfilled with down to ensure long lasting warmth, even if you’re carrying a pack.
- A large zipped inside pocket converts to a stuff sack for the vest.
- Close-fitting collar warms the neck.
- Long kidney-covering back.
- Soft brushed polyester lining in the hand pockets.
The space we are taking over provides great potential to bring the MEC brand to life inside and out.
The design will be in-keeping with the new architectural embodiment of the MEC brand, with extensive use of wood on both the inside and outside of the building. Green building features will include a high-performance building envelope and heating, cooling and ventilation (HVAC) system.
All MEC facilities are subject to our internal green building program, which establishes minimum performance standards. MEC Laval will be no different.
Two of the most important aspects of green buildings are the building envelope and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (or HVAC) system. The Laval store will provide R40 and R60 thermal performance in the walls and roof, respectively, and feature a best-in-class roof top HVAC system.
Energy efficient lighting will also be used throughout the store. Plus, Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) will be purchased for all energy consumed by MEC Laval.
MEC aims to maximize efficiency and minimize environmental impacts in our stores. Learn more about our green buildings.

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Weather-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.
