MEC Frostbreaker Jacket - Women's
Frigid mornings call for your most reliable winter coat. The Frostbreaker has a deep hood and thick recycled polyester insulation that wraps you in toasty warmth. Deep pockets keep your hands cozy, and the inner cuffs on the sleeves provide uninterrupted coverage that fits over your gloves. The mid-thigh length is slightly longer in the back so you're covered when you sit down, and a 2-way zip lets you adjust the fit. Lots of pockets hold all your daily essentials, and secret reflective details help keep you visible on after-dark commutes.

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.
