More on the Prize Package
Made for alpine adventures, the waterproof/windproof Couloir jacket is built with a two-layer GORE-TEX membrane and GORE-TEX C-Knit lining known for its breathability. Inside, the PrimaLoft Gold synthetic insulation is body-mapped to provide greater warmth in cold spots.
MEC chose a 70-denier recycled nylon outer shell to protect you from the elements and hold up to the crinkles and scrapes you’d expect from normal use.
Additionally, the jacket comes with an adjustable, helmet-friendly hood, contoured cuffs to fit gloves underneath, and a drawcord hem.
