MEC Ruby Jacket - Women's
A stretchy, mid-layer fleece with abrasion resistance for rugged rock or alpine environments, this jacket is a gear-closet gem. It's a great technical mid layer for rock climbing, hiking or scrambling. High collar, full front zipper, always-open handwarmer pockets, and zippered chest pocket provide just the right features to keep it lightweight and packable. Contrasting stretch fabric and thumbholes in the sleeve prevent it from exposing your hands while ensuring full overhead function and mobility in the vertical realm.
- Fabric is hardface polyester and spandex fleece, with a PU coating and ceramic print for abrasion resistance.
- Minimal seaming on shoulders for comfort under pack straps.
- High collar with mesh inner lining provides comfort and keeps out bone-chilling draughts.
- Full front zip with contrast coloured zipper pulls and chinguard to prevent chaffing.
- Glued-in, zippered chest pocket is Schoeller® soft shell with a Nanosphere DWR finish for water repellency.
- Thumbholes ensure wrists stay covered while working overhead manoeuvers.
- Handwarmer pockets are lined in polyester mesh and have no closures so they remain open to easily warm cold digits.
- Shock cord adjustable hem is slightly longer in the back to seal in heat under a pack or harness.
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.
