Unexpected, refined details elevate this 2-layer waterproof breathable trench into a league of its own. Clean lines and pleats streamline the look and balance out the much-appreciated insulation. A back cinch brings it in at the waist to enhance the fit, and a stand-up collar keeps out rude weather. Designed with 2-way stretch for ease of movement and a lightly brushed interior lining add to the comfort factor (because you can't look good if you not comfortable).

Technical garments, designed for specific activities have features that aren’t always adaptable to general use. For example, cycling clothing is longer in the back and arms. Activity aside, the fit of MEC clothing falls into these categories:
|Ideal for||Casual winter wear|
|Face fabric||Recycled polyester|
|Insulation||100g/sq. m polyester (body) + 60g/sq. m polyester (arms + hood)|
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.
|Waterproof with fully taped seams|
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.
