Named for a classic 34-pitch route in the Bugaboos, and designed for moving rapidly in the mountains. The newly designed fleece fabric is extremely lightweight and has the features of a true mid-layer. When you're working hard, you can shed your outer layers and the high air-permeability allows the wind to carry off heat and moisture, so you don't get soaked with sweat. When you start to cool down, pull on shell pants without feeling all bulked up, and the fabric continues to transport moisture vapour outward. Complemented with a minimalist design and a streamlined cut.
- Stretch fleece fabric is resilient and doesn't lose its loft. Made of 100% polyester.
- Warm with high air-permeability, 300 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is really quite good.
- Flatseam construction for comfort under layers.
- Drawcord at waist.
- Tapered leg, close, but not tight fit. No pockets.
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:
All MEC men’s and boy’s pants are regular rise.
|Fabric content||100% polyester|
A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
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.
