Why we made this
This Alpine Series jacket is a fast-drying and versatile layering piece with outstanding moisture management and breathability, designed for high-intensity activity in cold weather.
  • Product Description
    The Pisa Hooded Jacket for the Alpine Series — our premium technical collection designed in partnership with the renowned New Zealand Alpine Team. Put to the test by elite mountaineers on some of the world's harshest mountain routes, you can rely on this jacket to stand up to alpine environments. The Pisa is made with revolutionary Polartec® Alpha® Direct, an exciting technology that was initially made for U.S. Special Forces when they needed an advanced insulating fabric in their combat uniforms. This 'active insulation' sits directly on your skin, regulating your body temperature during low and high intensity activity, offering superior breathability and fast-drying properties. With the insulation sitting against your skin, it eliminates the need for a drop liner, making it incredibly lightweight. This insulation sits behind a durable and reinforced 100% nylon ripstop shell with Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment. It packs down to a small size, conveniently fitting into its own hand pocket — ideal for those lightweight adventures and alpine ascents.

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.
