MEC Alto Jacket - Boys' - Youths
A hooded jacket with a wind-resistant and weather-resistant shell, a soft, warm fleece lining, and high-visibility reflective trim. The jacket offers good protection for blustery spring or autumn days, although the seams are not taped, so it won't keep out a full-on deluge.
- Shell is 2-layer waterproof-breathable coated nylon with a DWR (durable water repellency) finish.
- Polyester fleece lining in the body and recycled polyester insulation in the sleeves to keep warm.
- Fully integrated hood with elastic trim to protect head and ears from cold gusts.
- Elasticized cuffs and full-length front zipper with a storm flap to seal out wind.
- 2 cargo-style chest pockets with faux snaps and Velcro® closures.
- 2 side-entry handwarmer pockets with zippers.
- Hand me down label and hook hanger loop inside.
- 360 reflective trim on hood, arms, front and back.
- Roomy, relaxed fit for easy layering.
- Care instructions: Machine wash cold and tumble dry low. Iron low when needed. Don’t bleach or dry clean.
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:
All MEC men’s and boy’s pants are regular rise.
|Ideal for||Casual wear|
|Technology||Microporous PU coating|
|Insulation||60g/sq. m polyester|
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.
|Waterproof without taped seams|
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.
