Show Description

Keep the wind at bay and the tunes on play with this everyday winter jacket. Both the body and hood are insulated to provide warmth for schoolyards and bus stops. It's not as warm or as motion-friendly as a ski jacked, but does allow you to fit warm layers underneath. The inside drop-in pocket fits a media player and has a headphone loop.

  • Shell is abrasion-resistant recycled polyester with a polyurethane waterproof breathable laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Seams are not taped, so this garment will not be fully waterproof in heavy rain.
  • Recycled polyester lining glides over layers.
  • Insulated with 200g MEC™ Hyperloft in the body and 140g in the hood and arms for toasty warmth.
  • Hood has internal elastic and back adjustment to seal in heat.
  • Hook-and-loop adjustable cuffs keep out cold and snow.
  • 2 handwarmer pockets with cozy fleece lining.
  • Internal drop-in pocket and headphone routing loop keep the tunes flowing.
  • Hand-me-down ID label.

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.
