MEC Toaster Vest - Children
With warm, but supple insulation and an excellent DWR finish, this shelled vest keeps their core toasty without restricting movement to their arms. To keep things nimble, we gave it a tailored shape cut, making it a functional layer for snowball fights and schoolyard tag.

- Lining is 100% recycled polyester.
- Insulation is 200g MEC™ Hyperloft, a loft-stable synthetic insulation that's still reasonably light and compact.
- 100% polyester fleece in pockets.
- Full front zip with two handwarmer pockets.
- Patch on chest, with reflective embroidery for visibility.
- Durable zipper pulls.
- Internal hand-me-down ID label.
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:
All MEC men’s and boy’s pants are regular rise.
|Ideal for||Casual winter wear|
|Insulation||200g/sq. m polyester|
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.
|Waterproof without 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.
