Gear jacket

Published on April 13th, 2017 | by adventuremag



The Pisa Jacket is the newest addition to Macpac’s Alpine Series – a premium technical collection designed in partnership with the New Zealand Alpine Team. Tested over 18 months of winter climbing throughout New Zealand, Patagonia and Europe, this exciting design has been refined to deliver the highest levels of warmth and breathability, in an extremely lightweight package. Constructed from Polartec Alpha® Direct, a new technology that was initially made for U.S. Special Forces when they needed more advanced insulating fabric in their combat uniforms. This ‘active insulation’ sits directly next to skin, regulating body temperature during low and high intensity activities, offering superior breathability and fast-drying properties. This insulation sits behind a durable and weather-resistant 100% Nylon Ripstop shell. It packs down into its own hand pocket – minimising packed size on expeditions where space is at a premium.
