MEC Austra Rain Jacket - Women's



Show Description

Slip on the Austra Rain Jacket for wet days running around town, a soul-restoring stroll after work, or even a day hike in damp weather. It delivers waterproof-breathable comfort without overwhelming your wallet. The fit is sleek, yet roomy enough for insulating layers beneath, and there are plenty of pockets to stash your wallet, gloves or snacks. A supple polyester lining makes this jacket soft and quiet, without the cardboard-y feel you get with inexpensive waterproof-breathables.

  • Fully lined with smooth recycled polyester taffeta.
  • Adjustable hood with separate stand-up collar shields you from wind.
  • 2 large easy-access handwarmer pockets, and 2 front drop-in pockets.
  • 1 internal security pocket.
  • 2-way zipper makes it easy to sit down.
  • Waist and hem cinch-toggle adjustments.
  • Thigh-length cut for maximum weather protection.

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.

  • 2 front cargo

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.
