MEC Obsession Hoodie - Women's
Astonishingly breathable and packable, the MEC Obsession Hoodie uses breakthrough Polartec Alpha for warmth with air permeability. Most insulated jackets have a tightly woven outer layer, which limits their breathability. With a light soft shell fabric covering the insulation and stretch panels through the back and underarms, the Obsession offers venting that won't shut down your ability to move. It's DWR-treated to shed water when you wear it as an outer layer, and the streamlined cut works as a mid-layer for alpine climbing and skiing.

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.
