A block heater for your body, this very warm and rugged down parka is cut with enough room to wear over a light sweater or mid-weight fleece. The outer shell is tough, water-resistant, and best for dry, cold, squeaky snow conditions.
- Shell fabric is abrasion-resistant 100-denier polyester with an excellent DWR treatment to provide water-resistance in all but the wettest settings.
- Lining fabric is 30-denier nylon with a DWR treatment.
- Insulated with 550 fill-power goose down. Two layers of sewn-through insulation in the front, one in the back, for outstanding warmth.
- Integrated hood with shockcord closure and removable 100% polyester faux-fur trim. The furriness is soft against your neck when the hood is down, and blocks out blustery conditions and spindrift when worn up.
- Fleece-lined collar.
- Insulated zipper flap with snap closures.
- Two external cargo pockets have flaps and snap closures. Two large capacity internal pockets.
- Two fleece lined handwarmer pockets are high on the chest.
- Internal chest pocket with electronics cord portal.
- One upper arm pocket with a snap closure.
- Waist drawcord and an external belt with a buckle.
- Knit cuffs on sleeves seal out the cold.
- Cut to just above the knee, to keep the bum and backs of legs warm.
Technical garments, designed for specific activities have features that aren’t always adaptable to general use. For example, cycling clothing is longer in the back and arms. Activity aside, the fit of MEC clothing falls into these categories:
|Insulation||550 fill-power goose down|
Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.
|Waterproof with critically taped seams|
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
