Why we made this
Engineered to meet the demands of weight and durability in competitive multi-sport, the Transition Pertex® Rain Jacket is lightweight, breathable and highly packable.
  • Product Description
    Whether you're adventure racing or simply heading out for a long run, the Transition Pertex® Rain Jacket is engineered to provide weather protection, comfort and durability at a reduced weight. Made with a combination of Pertex® fabrics — Pertex® Shield and Pertex® Shield Pro — the Transition is body-mapped for peak performance. Both highly waterproof fabrics, the ultralight Pertex® Shield fabric is extremely breathable, so it's featured in places where you're likely to sweat the most — think your back and underarm panels. Pertex® Shield Pro is still lightweight but slightly more durable, so this is featured on the lower arms, shoulders and front panel to combat pack strap abrasion or for when you're pushing through scrub. Fully seam sealed with a roll away hood, the slim-fit Transition meets gear requirements for competitive multi-sport and long distance running. Packing into its own internal mesh pocket, this jacket is easy to stuff into your hydration vest for on-the-go protection. Please note, while these fabrics are durable for their weight, the Transition is not designed for use with a heavy pack. For hiking purposes, check out our Resolution, Copland or Traverse Rain Jackets.

Is the hood large enough to fit over a bike helmet?
Pushbiker on Jun 29, 2020

Thank you for your enquiry.

This Jacket would be a tight fit with the Bike Helmet underneath as it would lift off the wearers shoulders and cause excessive tension when the wearer turns head left to right as in checking for traffic. If you wore it under the Bike Helmet, this would be fine however, keep in mind the stiffened brim of the Hood may get in the way of the Bike Helmet though.

We hope this helps!

Thanks - the Macpac Team

I would love this jacket if it had pockets for putting hands in. Will you consider pockets for your next version of this model?

BEST ANSWER: Hello Belinda,

Unfortunately we cannot say if there will. Weight has been minimized as much as possible - and is designed for highly active outdoor activities.

Kind regards,
