MEC Tremblant Jacket - Women's
Throw it on during lunch breaks or when stepping out of the hut to shovel new snow. The Tremblant Jacket is a welcome warm layer that easily packs down into a compact little package. The fabric slides easily beneath a shell jacket and the over-stuffed shoulders are designed to surround you with warmth that won't get packed down and compressed when you wear the jacket layered under your pack.
- Shell is made of water-resistant Pertex Classic that compresses down to an insignificant size.
- Lined with recycled polyester that glides over layers.
- Insulated with 700-fill power down for reliable warmth.
- Sewn-through construction.
- Shoulders are overfilled to prevent the down from shifting.
- Down-filled hood and high collar prevent chills.
- Storm flap behind zipper has a microfleece chin guard that wraps over the zipper.
- Elasticized wrists seal in heat.
- Articulated elbows move freely.
- Handwarmer pockets have zipper garages.
- Shockcorded hem seals drafts out and warmth in.
- Back length is 25in.
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:
|Face fabric||50-denier recycled polyester|
|Insulation||700 fill-power duck down|
|Down weight||185.5 g|
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.
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.
