MEC Forager Hoodie - Women's
A high-tech twist on tradition, the Forager works in the middle of a classic layering system with a base, mid-layer and shell for multi-day mountain trips. As your mid-layer, this hoodie insulates the body from external cold and moves moisture from base layers to your outerwear. Wear it for sniffing out secret powder stashes and ticking 4-star alpine gems. The high-loft fleece has long outer fibres to create and maintain loft, interspersed with dense microfibres that trap warm air. Incredibly warm, it's also 40% more compressible than a standard fleece garment.
- Made of Polartec® High Loft polyester fleece with 72% recycled content. It provides an excellent compressibility, superb moisture transfer, and excellent breathability.
- Yoke and hood are Schoeller soft shell with a Nanosphere DWR finish.
- Hood has an adjustable shockcord.
- Pockets are lined with polyester mesh.
- 2 handwarmer pockets.
- 2 zippered chest pockets.
- Full-length internal storm flap behind zipper, with chinguard.
- Drawcord hem to seal out drafts.
- Machine washable in cold water, no fabric softeners or bleach. Tumble dry on low.
The day you purchased your $5 MEC membership, you became part of a community that’s now four million members strong. You also became a shareholder in this Co-op. Your vote is both a right and a responsibility, and electing representatives you trust to provide informed oversight, passionate stewardship, and sound decision-making is an essential part of securing a vibrant future for MEC.
What you’re voting on
You choose the individuals you’d like to oversee your Co-op on the Board of Directors. Board members are the elected stewards of MEC, and serve three-year terms with the option to run again for a second term. Each year, members elect three candidates to sit on the Board.
Members also have the opportunity to vote on certain resolutions. Resolutions can provide direction to the Board, change our Rules of Co-operation, and affect the way we do business.
As a retail co-op, MEC is owned by its members and is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors elected by the membership. Our goal is strong and balanced leadership, and our nominations process helps us get there.
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
The nominations period for the 2017 election is now closed.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
We’re looking for people to run for our Board who possess the skills, experience and values needed for MEC to continue to grow and succeed in an increasingly competitive and complex retail environment. Three directors are elected annually and serve for a three-year term, with the option of running for a second term.
MEC’s Nominations Committee assesses all nominees to ensure they meet the minimum eligibility criteria. The Board must recommend between 4 and 9 of the candidates based on the extent to which they meet MEC’s current needs.
