MEC Drencher Pants - Women's
Affordable pull-over pants for your daily commute. They’re slim enough not to flap in the wind, yet roomy enough to fit over your regular clothes. The fully waterproof construction makes them best suited to shorter, lower-intensity rides, where interior moisture build-up will be minimal.
- Very durable 100% nylon fabric with polyurethane coating for waterproofness.
- Fully seam-taped for maximum protection.
- DWR coating for improved comfort.
- Elasticized waist with drawcord.
- Small rise at waist back to keep you covered in the riding position.
- Subtly articulated knees for comfortable pedalling.
- Gusseted knee to ankle zipper for easier on and off.
- Velcro® ankle closures can cinch tight to stay out of the drive.
- Reflective strips on the leg and hip for visibility at night or in dull weather.
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:
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.
A treatment that inhibits bacteria growth and reduces odour.
- Natural waist

- Petite inseam
- Measure inner leg from crotch to just below the ankle bone. If your leg length is shorter or equal to the 'petite' size inseam on this chart, pick a 'petite' if available. 'Petite' pants also have a slightly shorter rise. Not all pants are offered in 'petite' sizes.
