MEC Syn­ergy Jacket and Alpine Ally Jacket

Sport Fishing Gear Guide - - Clothing & Accessories -

When­ever you hear GORE-TEX men­tioned in the same sen­tence with out­door cloth­ing, you know you can’t go wrong. The Syn­ergy Jacket from MEC is light­weight, breath­able, and made of 70-de­nier ny­lon with a GORE-TEX PTFE lam­i­nate. It also has a durable wa­ter re­pel­lent (DWR) fin­ish. The jacket’s fully seam-taped con­struc­tion is de­signed to keep wa­ter – and blast­ing wind gusts – out, while the wa­ter-re­sis­tant front zip is glued in place for dura­bil­ity. What`s more, the un­der­arm vents al­low the jacket to breathe, while two chest pock­ets have wa­ter-re­sis­tant zip­pers with zip­per garages. For lighter weather con­di­tions, MEC of­fers its more eco­nom­i­cal Alpine Ally Jacket. De­signed for the ever-chang­ing weather in coastal cli­mates, one of the key high­lights is the 3-layer Per­tex Shield+, which is treated to re­sist against wa­ter. It’s also taped through the seams for full wa­ter­proof pro­tec­tion. Fur­ther, the main, front zip­per is backed with a storm flap and ad­di­tional un­der­arm zip­pers al­low the jacket to breathe eas­ier. It has a clean, stitch-free con­struc­tion with ar­tic­u­lated el­bows to pro­vide eas­ier move­ment. Re­tail Pric­ing Alpine Ally Jacket: $275 CAD Syn­ergy Jacket: $375 CAD www.mec.ca
