MEC Benefact Jacket - Men's
Street-smart looks, shoulder season versatility. The insulated lining and hood buffer you from cool blasts of air, and the smooth polyester lining slips over base layers easily. A solid choice for clear, cool days when you need more warmth than a windbreaker, but aren’t quite ready to break out your winter jacket.

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.
