MEC Rain Pants - Youths
Built to take the wettest weather and the splashiest activities imaginable. The seams are fully-taped and the fabric has a durable waterproof coating that's also moderately breathable. Ideal in extremely wet conditions when the goal is to stay completely dry.
- Made of durable 200-denier oxford nylon with a breathable polyurethane microporous coating and a highly effective DWR (durable water repellency) finish, for full-on weather resistance.
- Fully taped seams for complete waterproof protection.
- Elasticized, pull-on waist for a comfortable fit over layers

All MEC men’s and boy’s pants are regular rise.
|Ideal for||Casual wear|

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.
|Waterproof with fully taped seams|
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.
