MEC Spicy Hoodie - Women's


See available down insulated jackets


Ultralight, packable and filled with DWR-treated down, it sets the dial at optimal for the warmth-to-weight ratio of down jackets. The fabric has exceptional tear strength for something so lightweight, and DWR-treated down retains impressive loft and warmth when exposed to precip and moisture. A favourite of MEC ambassador Sarah Hart because "it feels like air." The Spicy is a proven standout in any snowy setting, high-country mission or cold city street.
