MEC Co-Opted Down Jacket - Men's
A jacket for the cold snaps, it will keep you warm without having to pile on layers. The classic puffer style has a modern low profile, adjustable hood and generous handwarmer pockets. The outer fabric is treated to shed water, and inside it's stuffed with 550-fill down. Not too flashy, but not utilitarian either, the Co-opted Jacket is MEC's designated candidate for an everyday outer layer for anyone who lives in (or visits) the Great White North.
- Outer fabric is woven polyester with a moisture-shedding DWR finish.
- Filled with 550-fill power duck down.
- Insulated and adjustable hood keep cold winds at bay.
- Button-down front has an inner placket as an extra insulating measure.
- 2 zippered handwarmer pockets and 1 internal zippered chest pocket provide ample storage options.
- Internal rib-knit cuffs help you seal in warmth.

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.

Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
