From the fabric to the features, this technical soft shell is engineered for mountains.
Co-developed by MEC™ and Polartec®, and exclusive to MEC, the fabric’s outside face is a fairly tight weave that is rugged and easy-moving, with an excellent balance of wind-resistance and breathability. DWR treatment adds protection against light precipitation. The inside face has a high loft that’s been partially voided – about 35% of the loft has been removed to enhance breathability, mobility and packability. The interior fibres help move moisture out for fast evaporation.
