For many who grew up in Canada, the name MEC may ring bells of outdoorsy gear with a fashionable lean. Now, the brand is reinventing many of its most popular and classic apparel with a 21st Century update. By taking the best items from its five decades in business and updating the garments to more sustainable fabrics, MEC is bridging the gap between vintage and modern with an intentional focus on improving what’s worked for them.
These favorites have also been updated for longer performance and better all-around wear, extending MEC’s placement in the outdoor apparel field. Every piece – from pants, packs, duffels, and more – is designed to last, all while looking pretty damn cool.
