MEC Light Degree Hoodie - Women's
Once you've paid your dues for the views, this down jacket hugs you with warmth as you add your name to the summit log or fold up your skins and get ready for the run down. It's constructed with a lightweight face fabric and high fill-power down, so it's a practical option for alpine settings where the weight you're carrying is key to success.
- Shell is lightweight 20-denier polyester, with a DWR (durable water repellency) finish.
- Insulation is 800 fill-power goose down that’s locked in place with sewn-through quilting.
- Close fitting hood with elasticized binding tape and finished brim keeps head extra warm.
- Two deep zippered hand pockets.
- Extra-large internal pocket bags provide room for gloves or climbing skins. They double as stuff sacks for the jacket and have a carabiner clip-in loop.
- Elasticized cuffs prevent cold air from seeping in.
- Fleece-lined chin guard for comfort.
- Drawcord hem seals out drafts.
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||800 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.
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.
|Additional feature(s)||Stuffs in own pocket|
