MEC Bon Vivant Jacket - Women's



Show Description

At home on streets and sidewalks when the rain comes in sideways, this long-cut piece is excellent for jaunts around town and travel to coastal cities. The Bon Vivant Jacket uses a lighter fabric, that's softer, less-crinkly than previous, and it's fully recycled. The jacket has been restyled too for a more elegant urban look.

  • The waterproof-breathable laminate is recycled 100% polyester with a subtle ripstop weave and a touch of stretch.
  • 2 cargo style handwarmer pockets with button closures.
  • Attached hood adjusts with three-button option on back and a drawcord.
  • Plush microfleece chin guard for comfort.
  • Full zip closure with snap-button wind flap. The zip stops short of the bottom hem to allow mobility.
  • Back vertical gusset for freedom of movement.
  • Mid-thigh length.

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.

Length Mid-thigh
Durable water repellency
