MEC Flicker Vest - Women's
Find a perfect balance between warmth and mobility. Fast-drying synthetic insulation keeps you warm on the run. Brushed fleece side panels dial in the ideal heat-to-movement ratio. A slightly dropped rear hem provides extra coverage so drafts never get your lower back, and the wind resistant materials come in handy when you're burning up the cross-country trails.
- Shell and liner are made of recycled polyester and have a DWR finish for weather resistance.
- Side panels are made from polyester and spandex fleece that's stretchy and breathable.
- Primaloft Silver Eco uses post-consumer recycled material to create a high loft, thermally efficient, earth-friendly insulation.
- Fast drying insulation won't weigh you down as your speed increases.
- Front zippered pockets keep your hands warm, a full-zip makes for easy on-off, and a high overlapping shawl collar stands up to the chiil.
- 26.75in from back of neck to bottom hem (size medium).
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:
|Technology||PrimaLoft Silver Eco|
|Face fabric||30-denier recycled polyester|
|Lining/backer||30-denier recycled polyester|
|Insulation||60g/sq. m polyester|
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.
