MEC Limelight Parka - Women's
A slim, insulated parka with angled chevron quilting that flatters your frame while it surrounds you in down. Technical know-how keeps you warm in extreme winter without making the Limelight look like an expedition parka. The collar stands separate from your hood to keep your neck cozy even when the hood is down. Fleece-lined front pockets provide a lovely haven for chilly hands, and an interior pocket keeps your phone alive on frigid mornings. The 2-way zip gives you movement to step over snowbanks or sprint for the bus.
- Made of durable polyester, treated with DWR for weather resistance.
- Recycled polyester lining slides smoothly over layers.
- Insulated with duck down that meets the Responsible Down Standard for animal welfare.
- Subtle chevron pattern creates a streamlined silhouette.
- Insulated hood adjusts with a drawcord.
- Separate collar so your neck stays warm even without the hood.
- 2 zippered handwarmer pockets and an interior zippered chest pocket provide secure storage for your valuables.
- Drop-in interior pocket with hook-and-loop closure has a small port for your earphones so your cords aren't exposed to the freeze.
- Stretchy inner cuffs seal out drafts.
- Exposed centre front zipper is 2-way, with an interior stiffened storm flap so your zipper won't snag.

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.
|Additional feature(s)||2-way zipper|
