MEC Snowdrift Jacket - Children
Puffy and warm to spend more time riding sleds and catching snowflakes. Pull on the insulated hood to protect small ears from gusting winds, and seal out cold drafts with the front storm flap over the zipper. Down insulation makes it lightweight and compressible, so you can squish it into its own hood and bring it along as a just-in-case layer to extend time outside.
- Made of Pertex Quantum recycled polyester with a DWR (durable water repellency) finish to keep it water and wind resistant.
- Insulated with 625 fill-power duck down that meets the Responsible Down Standard for animal welfare.
- Quilted construction keeps the down in place.
- Insulated 3-panel hood has elastic edge binding to trap warm air in.
- Front zipper has an insulated storm flap with hook-and-loop closure.
- Handwarmer pockets to store found treasures.

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.
