SPRING/SUMMER 2016

The MEC 2016 Spring/Summer lifestyle collection includes essential pieces from our exclusive MEC Label alongside unique brands that combine style and substance.

Story by MEC January 6th, 2016
The MEC Label confidently combines effortless style with enduring quality. Our 45 years of backcountry experience informs everything from our material choices to our thoughtful designs, resulting in beautifully understated clothing, gear and accessories, all made to withstand years of adventure.

Nothing makes it into MEC without meeting our strict manufacturing criteria. For example, all of the cotton we carry is organic.


We’re particularly proud of two young brands that made the grade: tentree and United by Blue.

tentree: A Canadian company that plants ten trees for every item purchased. Read more here.

United by Blue: For every product sold, United By Blue removes one pound of trash from oceans and waterways through company organized and hosted cleanups. Read more here.

We’re also leading the way when it comes to Fair Trade apparel. Fair Trade isn’t just about coffee and chocolate, learn more here.
