MEC Fall + Winter 2016

Clothes that will keep you warm, dry and inspired to go outside

Story by MEC May 26th, 2016

MEC has inspired generations of Canadians to face winter head on. We translate what we know from making clothing for high-altitude climbs to make winter coats and rain jackets that keep you dry and warm - in and out of the city.

While we have a deep respect for our heritage, we are not complacent. Our MEC technical designers, material developers and product buyers are continuously incorporating the latest technology into our thoughtful collection of footwear and apparel.

For Fall/Winter 2016 MEC is proud to have fall and winter jackets from Helly Hansen, Patagonia, Indygena and Burton alongside our exclusive MEC label.
