Found one for $6 at a Village thrift in Chicago. Did not see the washing instructions. Looking for a 'brand new one'. It's worth it! I had an XL, which was excellent for wearing with sweats. The adjustable cuffs and other restrainers were good for maintaining ventilation during activity. In my cool-down period, the cords helped to maintain warmth until I'm indoors. In the wet snows and rains in Chicago, the water resistance is great for those gale like winds that will blow circles around you. Full review
Perfect jacket. Absolutely love this jacket, which has been downgraded to my neighborhood walking coat. I've bought many to replace it, but none have worked as well. Full review
I love that this jacket is still in great shape after several years of rough treatment and it continues to function like it did when new. I'm sad they are no longer available. Full review
Greatest outdoor jacket I've ever owned. Whether I'm driving my jeep, w/ the top down and doors off on a breezy nite or walking out in 2 the surf for a little fishing— this jacket is awsome! I love my Pac Tech rain jacket! I bought it new, several years ago at Sunny Surplus. I'm trying despretly to find another one. The one I have is still in great condition, but I would love 2 have a backup. I could kick myself, for not buying every color they had. Hopefully these reviews will reach the eyes… Full review
I too had a Blue Pacific Trail Pac Tech jacket..it was awesome, great pockets, just warm enough, great rain jacket. I had it for over 10 years, and was in an accident recently, and it was shredded..unfortunately Columbia purchased Pacific Trail, and nothing comes close, even in cost..oh well. Full review
Pacific Trail was acquired by Columbia in 2006.
