Show Description

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.

  • Winner of the Polartec Apex award that honours inspiring design and technical innovation.
  • Outer fabric is Toray light soft shell that breathes exceptionally well. Stretch panels add mobility through the back, underarms and cuffs.
  • Quilted Polartec High Pile Alpha on the chest, upper back and tops of arms remains warm and breathable in damp conditions.
  • Outer surfaces are DWR-treated for protection from wetness.
  • Lined with ripstop nylon with high air permeability.
  • Snug, scuba-style hood slips under a helmet.
  • Internal stormflap covers zipper and a foldover chinguard protects your skin.
  • Raglan style sleeves for comfort under pack straps.
  • Zippered pocket on side seams hold the map or an energy bar.
  • Elastic hem and cuffs to seal warmth in and weather out.

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.
