Description

Show Description

Part of MEC's Boundary collection, the Steepside combines backcountry-grade insulation with slope-ready aesthetics. Insulated with synthetics for exceptional warmth, this waterproof jacket has great mobility, even with a base layer. The fully adjustable hood features a stiffened brim to keep your vision unobstructed during flurries and on bluebird afternoons. Ideal for resort or side riding, the Steepside encourages free-form shredding through all-mountain conditions.

  • Fabric is waterproof-breathable 2-layer polyester with polyurethane laminate, a brushed inner face, and a DWR finish.
  • Seam taped for full waterproof protection.
  • Hyperloft synthetic insulation is 80g in body and sleeves, 60g in hood.
  • Helmet compatible hood has a stiffened brim and drawcord adjustment with cordlocks at front and back.
  • Zippered fleece-lined handwarmer pockets provide secure storage.
  • Interior zippered pocket for your phone and large elasticized drop in pocket for your goggles.
  • Powder skirt has a tab for attaching compatible snow pants.
  • Weather resistant zippers prevent water from seeping through.
  • Underarm zips for self-regulated cooling.
  • Built-in Recco® Rescue System reflector allows ski patrol and mountain rescue teams to detect and locate Recco reflectors under snow. Useful for resort skiing, Recco technology is not a substitute for skills training, beacons, essential gear, or smart decision-making in the backcountry.

Fabric waterproof rating

The standard test for waterproof fabrics uses a standing column filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A rating of 3,500mm or higher can be considered waterproof. The higher the rating, the more durable the waterproof fabric will be over time.

15,000mm
Waterproofness

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
Fabric active breathability

The rate at which a waterproof breathable fabric expels moisture when the inner surface is moist from perspiration. Values under 8,000g/m2/24h provide low performance, 20,000g/m2/24h provide moderate performance and values over 30,000g/m2/24h provide high performance.

Windproofness

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.

Windproof
Length Below hip
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.
