MEC Uplink Hybrid Hoodie - Men's
Think of it as the Uplink Jacket’s talented younger sibling. Combining what what you love about the original Uplink Jacket – toasty synthetic insulation, uncompromising warmth, and incredible packability – the Uplink Hybrid Hoodie also boasts breathability and movement. Panels under the arms and on the back are made of a stretchy-but-warm fleece, designed to stand up to the needs of mountaineers, hikers and backcountry skiers who move fast (and get sweaty) in cold weather.
- Shell and lining are lightweight 20-denier ripstop polyester with a DWR finish for water resistance.
- Arms, hood and chest are insulated with synthetic insulation that retains warmth even when wet.
- Underarms and back are made with breathable stretch fleece with a cozy brushed interior.
- Adjustable hood fits over a climbing helmet.
- Raglan sleeves are comfortable under backpack straps.
- Zippered handwarmer pockets.
- Elastic trim at the wrists and a drawcord hem help trap heat.
- Jacket folds into its external chest pocket. The bartacked loop lets it double as stuff sack. Small enough to fit on a harness or in the lid of your pack.

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.
