Why we made this
Active insulation for the mountains, the Pisa is lined with Polartec® Alpha® Direct with 78% recycled content for an outstanding warmth-to-weight ratio, increased breathability and reliable moisture management.
  • Product Description
    Active insulation at it's most versatile, the Pisa Polartec® Hooded Jacket utilises advanced fabric technology to directly warm your skin while maintaining a high level of breathability and managing moisture build up. Lined with Polartec® Alpha® Direct synthetic insulation featuring 78% recycled polyester content, the Pisa is a core product of our Alpine Series — our premium technical collection designed in partnership with the New Zealand Alpine Team (NZAT). Originally designed for the U.S. Special Forces and now helping to keep mountaineers and alpine adventurers warm and comfortable in harsh environments, Polartec® Alpha® Direct minimises weight by sitting directly against your skin and removing the need for a drop liner. Effectively regulating your body temperature during low and high intensity activity, Alpha® Direct offers superior breathability and dries fast. Wrapped in a bluesign® approved nylon ripstop fabric with a short-chain DWR C6 finish for improved moisture repellency, the Pisa is lightweight and packable — tucking into it's own pocket for lighter climbing or hiking. Bluesign® certification confirms these specific fabrics have been manufactured with responsible use of resources and the lowest possible impact on people and the environment.

My favourite jacket
Brilliant lightweight, windproof and shower proof (not heavy downpours) jacket. Very warm but breathes enough. Extra strength material in high wear areas and packs very small and lightweight. Couldn't recommend more highly.

What you waiting for
Gobsmacked at the performance of this jacket. Very light weight piece and so warm. Will be grabbing this jacket for many outings to come. If you are even considering the jacket just buy it!

Good for the Tasmanian winter.
Had this a week now, I live in Tasmania and have worn this on night walks around where I live and can’t believe how warm it keeps me. The jacket is so light you hardly know it’s on. The polartec Alfa direct insulation is the main reason I went for this, and it has not disappointed so far. I don’t seem to sweat during the walks I have done this far. I and 6feet tall and 90kg and the XL fits perfect, the jacket seems to be true to size.

Small fitting
Pitty that 2xl is the largest size this goes too. Very small fitting. Waiting to return once lockdown is over.

Great piece of kit!
Unbelievable how something this light can be so warm and breathable! It's really comfy, fit is spot on for me (I'm 180cm tall and went with a medium size). Highly recommended.

My son loves it
I purchased this jacket for my son who needed a warm jacket but didn’t want a puffy one. I was disappointed when I unwrapped it. Looks very thin and has weird white fluffy stuff inside. Maybe this is the technically amazing element? However......My 19 year old son LOVES it and wears it over t-shirts every day. It will fit over sloppy joes when it gets colder. I wanted to send it back but he wouldn’t let me. Hope it’s as warm as it says when the weather gets really cold!

Unbelievably light, warm, and comfortable
I went into the Macpac Petone Outlet a few months ago to buy a replacement for my warmest fleece, and I was convinced to try on a Pisa Polartec jacket. I struggled to believe that something so flimsy could be warm, but I knew the advice I get in Macpac stores tends to be pretty good.

I was not disappointed. This jacket is unbelievably light, warm, and comfortable. Not only is it now my go-to insulating jacket when tramping, it is also now my go-to insulating jacket for going to work, going out in the weekend, and going everywhere else, and I cannot remember the last day I did not wear it.

Huge Fan of Alpha direct and this jacket.
This is a fantastic jacket. The alpha material is amazing. I have just worn this jacket for 4 days in the Tasmanian winter and today was up in Mount Field where is was well below zero with above 40km/hr winds along with snow and ice. I had a base layer and this jacket on. I was warm enough. The insulation is amazingly warm for its weight and quiet remarkable. All the lofty reviews of Polartec Alpha direct are all true. For such a thin insulating jacket it is remarkably warm.
Only negative - I wish the hood was adjustable and possibly there was a waist adjuster. I am unsure about durability of the outer material especially in the Australian bush.
This is my prime jacket for all winter hikes now.

Is this jacket waterproof?
Jo E on Jul 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Water resistant, not waterproof so you might want to have a waterproof shell on top of it if you're in an environment where there's heavy rain. But in saying that, I've worn it many times in light rain and it maintains it's warmth pretty well unless u get really soaked. It's also fairly quick drying if it gets wet. Overall great and versatile jacket for everyday use.
