Reach for your reliable winter coat on the cold mornings. The Frostbreaker has a deep hood and a high collar that wraps your neck in warmth. Deep pockets give you a place to stash your gloves, and the inner cuffs on the sleeves provide uninterrupted coverage that fits over your gloves. The mid-thigh length is slightly longer in the back so you're covered when you sit down and a 2-way zip provides some ease.

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:
|Ideal for||Casual winter wear|
|Technology||Microporous PU laminate|
|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. 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.
