MEC Newt Suit - Children
The MEC Newt Suit is an outdoor classic that provides full coverage and has taped seams for excellent protection in wet conditions. Children will stay dry and comfortable when playing in puddles, on wet playgrounds or on trails after a rain.
- Made from a robust nylon mini-ripstop with a polyurethane coating.
- DWR finish for maximum waterproofing.
- Seams are fully taped throughout, so rain can't work in through the seams.
- Provides full coverage without gaps and places to become untucked.
- 2 water-resistant Uretek coated front zips open to the waist, making it relatively easy to get on and off.
- Hood has a brim and elasticized sides to keep water drops away off a child's head and face.
- All cuffs are elasticized for a snug, comfortable fit.
- Reflective trim for heightened visibility.

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.
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.
