Why we made this
Proven to protect you from the worst of the weather while hiking, the longline Resolution Pertex® Rain Jacket is designed to be waterproof, breathable and durable.
This classic hiking jacket is engineered for performance and comfort when out and about in stormy weather. Designed with a fully seam sealed Pertex® Shield Pro three layer outer shell, the Resolution is a long waterproof jacket that is both breathable and durable. A microporous PU membrane contributes to the shell's 20,000 mm hydrostatic head rating but just as importantly, allows your body to breathe during high intensity activity — helping you to stay comfortable while on the move. Double storm flaps with an inner map pocket and an adjustable hood that can roll away, also help to protect you from the weather. Handy cargo pockets and a water-resistant YKK® AquaGuard® zip chest pocket are pack-compatible so you can access them while hiking — adding the finishing touch to a great all-round rain jacket. Please note that the YKK® AquaGuard® zip is water resistant but not waterproof.

Can’t go wrong with this number
I purchased this jacket after working as an adventure tour guide for 6 months and the company supplied it for the time I was working for them. Honeslty, I wore it in all conditions heavy rain, wind, cooler alpine climates with layers underneath. It was great. Because I absolutely thrashed it over those 6 months it did need further waterproofing but the quality and durability after all of this was worth it. My advice buy the size that has a little more room to move not a fitted size because you will want to pop a few layers underneath if you are in a cooler climate or hiking/adventuring in the cooler months. The company supplied the jackets in black and I brought the purple because it was on clearance and more affordable for me. But by all means this jacket is worth every penny even at full price. The shape is really nice to I always got a lot of compliments from the guests and would tell them to check it out on the Macpac website.

This jacket was a waste of time and money! Wore it in the recent heavy downpour we’ve had in Sydney and inspite of zipping up fully and using Velcro tape fasteners and the hood attachment, I was drenched, soaked through to the skin and telephone and tissues which were in my deep covered pockets, got soaking wet. Pertex is not as good as Goretex in my opinion. In fact it doesn’t come close. I was informed by the Sales assistant that Pertex was similar. How wrongly misinformed I was. Anyone who wants an effective rain jacket, should only buy Goretex

Do the hand pockets have zips? Also, is the Potent Purple going to be released again?
BEST ANSWER: No the jacket does not have zips but there is no need as the flap goes over the pocket and there is velcro to keep the flap down. Love this jacket. Better than I expected. I have used it last summer in Tasmania and loved it. It is much better quality than my other goretex jackets.
Does this rain jacket have any Velcro on it?
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jacqueline. Yes the resolution has velcro to close over the zip. There is also velcro on the wrists, and to close the horizontal waist pockets. Thanks the Macpac Team
Should I get a fitted size or allow a bit of room?
BEST ANSWER: Hello Linda, personally I would allow for a bit of room. Each person’s preference is different though. Thank you
Is the Resolution Pertex okay for wearing with a pack?
BEST ANSWER: Yes definitely. I used mine on a pack carrying trip in the Sth West Track in Tas.last Feb In 10 days we had rain many days. The coat kept me dry. With a pack on the coat seems shorter though. Need overpants as well down there.
