There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear
Nasty weather is unavoidable, but rain, snow, sleet or wind doesn’t need to keep you from getting outside. At MEC, you’ll find a huge selection of jackets to stay warm, dry and protected from the elements – whether that’s heavy downpours on the west coast or a -30°C coldsnap in Montreal. For great tips on how to stay warm, check out our article on how to layer for outdoor activities.
Discover jackets from some of the best names in technical apparel, from Patagonia to The North Face. We even have our own line of MEC outerwear that’s designed and developed in Canada. The MEC Label design team delivers standout pieces that have a keen focus on sustainability and quality, and cater to all budgets and activities.
Jackets for all kinds of activities
There are a lot of options in the world of technical outerwear. Check out light and packable rain shells for camping and hiking or wind shells for running. Round out your layering system with a soft shell or fleece, or find a down and synthetic insulated jacket that packs a lot of heat for your backcountry ski trip. There are even casual coats that’ll make waiting for your train in the winter a lot cozier.
