Macpac Pulsar Plus PrimaLoft® Hooded Jacket - Men's
Why we made this
Designed for climbers, the winter-weight Pulsar Plus features premium synthetic insulation for outstanding warmth in wet conditions.
Designed for climbers, the lightweight Pulsar Plus features premium materials and synthetic insulation for outstanding warmth in wet or snowy conditions. An ultralight Pertex® Quantum outer shell is soft, light and weather resistant with a DWR finish. Constructed from fine yarns and tightly woven, Pertex® Quantum fabric is designed to trap warm air and improve the efficiency of the insulation within. To keep you warm, PrimaLoft® Gold synthetic insulation with Cross-Core Technology™ has been used to provide an exceptional warmth to weight ratio and performance in less than ideal conditions. While traditional down may get wet and clump, the synthetic fibre of PrimaLoft® Gold doesn’t absorb moisture directly, so its thermal performance is more consistent across dry or wet weather. Plus, the introduction of Cross-Core Technology™ means this ‘aerogel fibre’ insulation is even lighter, with a highly porous, low-density structure that forms a temperature barrier. Helmet compatible with a high chin and practical pockets, the Pulsar Plus is engineered to keep you warm in the mountains this season.

Bombproof belay jacket
The perfect belay jacket for winter climbing, when you're standing around for up to 3 hours waiting for your partner to get up some horrendous rime pitch. Or just general cold nights out. Because its synthetic it feels a lot more long lasting than down jackets, even with the very thin shell material. Especially in wet nz weather you can wear it in the rain and not worry much because it dries so fast.
