It has a clean, no-fuss silhouette and watertight zips which enhance the streamlined feel.

  • Helmet compatible hood
  • Adjustable hood cords, back and front
  • High collar for full coverage at front from the elements
  • Three external and one internal pocket

Care

Care Instructions

  • Warm machine wash on gentle cycle using pure soap or Nikwax Tech Wash® (do not use biological products)
  • Do not bleach or use fabric softeners
  • Cool tumble dry
  • Cool iron
  • Do not dry clean

To get the best performance out of your waterproof garment frequent washing and drying is recommended.

Before washing ensure all zippers and closures are secure.

Tumble drying is very important to rejuvenate the DWR finish.

We would also recommend periodically using a DWR restorer, such as Nikwax TX. Direct® to help prolong the life of your garment.

A frequently washed garment is a well performing one.

Pertex®

Since 1979 Pertex® has specialized in producing high performing, reliable fabrics. The different products can be used for protection against the cold, wind, and rain in any environment.

Pertex Shield® AP

Pertex Shield® AP is an ultra-high performance waterproof breathable fabric, which features an advanced air-porous membrane to offer the highest levels of durability and performance for professional and extreme applications.

The Shield® AP membrane contains a high concentration of uniformly spaced microporous holes that have highly hydrophobic properties. This membrane plays a dual role, giving the fabric both its waterproofness (20,000 mm) and a high degree of moisture permeability or breathability (20,000g).

This fabric offers enhanced comfort across a wide range of weather conditions and environments and its durable construction ensures reliable protection throughout the garments lifetime, even for extended periods in extreme conditions.

Great Jacket

Andrew, 26/01/16

Spent a week in the Nelson Lake Region and the four days of torrential rain was not an issue for me when I used this jacket. Great waterproofing keeping me dry long after others became saturated and so light and easy to pack away when it wasn't needed.

New Zealand's Best Lightweight Bush Jacket

Mitch, 02/02/16

A truly phenomenal jacket that performs at the highest level. I've used this particular jacket numerous times and have been impressed at the lightweight construction without the compromise of poor durability. A perfect jacket for all New Zealand conditions.
Good work Macpac!
As usual!

Awesome Jacket!

Allen, 08/09/16

Awesome Jacket! Lightweight and durable A+

My favourite jacket

Nick, 20/10/16

I bought this to replace an old 2.5 layer Gore-Tex jacket, and i started out a little unsure about the "extra' weight of going to a 3 layer, but the team at Albany were super helpful in finding the specs and putting my mind at ease about the weight as it was lighter than the jacket it replaced. This is super waterproof, durable and breathable. I cant rate this jacket better for NZ conditions!

Best rain jacket I've ever owned

James Price, 27/02/17

I've had 3 Goretex jackets in the past, all different army issue jackets. In terms of breathability and waterproof rating I have found this jacket to be superior. I recently took this jacket to EBC during October and found that I was a small handful of 15 people who stayed dry during 10 hour day treks through the Himalaya's. This jacket made me proud to be a kiwi representing NZ designed gear.

Marc, 25/09/16

Comfortable wind proof jacket but falls short as far as being waterproof. Four hour hike in light rain and wet to the skin after one hour. I do not recommend this Pertex Shield AP product.
