MEC Ferrata Pants - Women's
There's fast fashion, and then there's the Ferrata Pants. These enduring soft shell pants are known for their durability and multi-sport adaptability. Super-burly, abrasion resistant fabric stands up to rough alpine granite and abusive squeeze chimneys. Wear them on their own in warm weather, or with long underwear layered underneath in cold settings. The material provides stretch for unhindered movement when climbing or skiing and is highly breathable when you're cranking.

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. 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.
