I live in the panhandle of Florida. While vacationing in Gatlinburg, TN, I purchased the Pacific Trail Pac Tech Jacket to use as a lightweight wind breaker and rain jacket. They only had it in Men's but I went ahead and purchased it.

It has been the best and most versatile jacket I have ever owned. It has great packability, wrinkles fall right out once unfolded, it packs compactly with a self packing feature (folds back into its own pocket as a pouch). It is great for both wind and rain! I enjoy hiking and horseback riding hear in FL as well as other regions of the US and this jacket is always with me.

I have contacted pacifictrail dot com to see if they have bibs or pants in this same style. I am cold natured and this jacket keeps me dry and toasty. A very comfortable fit. Style# 053600

Pros

  • Strengths are it does everything it was made to do. It does them well. Extremely durable.

Cons

  • It's no longer available.

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.

Summary

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!

Pros

  • water/wind proof
  • not 2 light, not 2 heavy
  • very comfortable
  • looks great!
  • variety of colors

Cons

  • i only bought :(
  • they're no longer availible.

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 and ears of the designers/owners of the brand, and maybe this awsome jacket will make a comeback. Until then, I'll just keep searching.

Price Paid: $30-40?

I bought this jacket maybe 10 years ago or longer.  I got caught in a storm, ran into a store and got what they had.  With tech gear I never buy on impulse so this was rare. 

I've used it every winter. I love it. I would love to buy another but found out the company was bought out by Columbia. Mine has started to loose the white inner lining in the hood.

I'm from California, but am currently in Tbilisi Georgia (next to Russia) where it rains a lot. I wear it for sports activites and over a suit coat.  Works great. I am asked often as to where people can get one.

Great jacket. Mine is still like new and is several years old. I just wish I could find one for my wife so she would leave mine alone ;). I bought mine from Sports Authority years ago.

So what happened, as with all good thing, do they have to die young, help.  So for those of you that follow these thing please email me a comprehensive list of like products. I want my "Pacific Trail Performance outerwear waterproof beathable est 1945" jacket put back in the marketplace. 

This jacket paddled a lot of streams in Missouri and Colorado without getting wet or cold once. email addressskipfoto@yahoo.com.  Now I want a new one to protect me from plying the coastal water aboard a sailboat.  pants too.  What is wrong with these people?

Update 4/5/2011

just bought a "Pacific Trail Rain Jacket yellow size xxl from a website called QuesTackle, 99.95 cheaper than my last purchase but that was 10 years ago, at least I hope it is the same jacket, it sounded like what I purchased many many putins and takeouts ago. 

Hope this helps someone besides me.  I have been looking to replace the one that went in the dryer by mistake.  She is now my "X"....also in a beatiful blue color.

Price paid: 114.95 including shipping

Ditto to all of the other reviewers. This waterproof Pac Tech packable shell is the best purchase I have ever made in terms of outerwear! I have even used it over a sport coat!  Dress it up or dress it down...it is fantastic! 

I paid sixty some bucks for it at Gander Mountain in Wisconsin. . .if I could find another one I would pay twice that much for another one. Where can I get another one!!!  

I don't like bulky coats and this lightweight coat is my main winter wear...warm and extremely ergonomic...love everything about it. None of the alternatives listed come close to this one, especially at the price point.

I bought this jacket about six years ago. It was one of the best purchases I ever made. It is lightweight but warm and breathable and looks good.

It is especially useful when traveling. It weighs very little and takes up little space but is comfortable in a wide range of temperatures and climatic conditions.

I wear this jacket on duty as a Police Officer during the cold and rainy season. This jacket is lightweight and breathable. Pac Tech jackets by Pacific Trail keep the wind, rain, and other elements away from your body and keeps me warmer than any heavy jacket available. Great product...a must buy.
