MEC Farpoint Jacket - Women's



Show Description

A truly audacious line requires just-right conditions and the right mindset to envision it. The Farpoint Jacket offers up the performance of a soft shell in a super-lightweight package you'd likely mistake for a wind shell. Designed to protect you from light precipitation when you're moving hard and fast, it's incredibly breathable and offers good wind resistance. A great option for alpine climbing, ski touring, scrambling, or mountain biking. It has a fully helmet compatible hood and is compressible enough to stuff into its own chest pocket to clip to a harness or slip in a pack.

  • Made of nylon Airtastic soft shell fabric that effectively blocks wind.
  • Elasticized hood fits under a helmet and is easy to pull on or off.
  • Partially elasticized hem and cuffs are lightweight but seal out drafts.
  • Zippered pocket on chest has a reverse coil zipper and doubles as the jacket's stuff sack.
  • Full-length lightly stiffened internal storm flap behind zipper.
  • Machine wash in cold. Do not bleach or dry clean. Tumble dry on low.

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.
