Macpac Resolution Pertex® Rain Jacket - Women's
Why we made this
Proven to protect you from the worst of the weather, the long Resolution Jacket is designed to be waterproof, breathable and durable — ideal for hiking.
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 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 hiking. 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 on the chest pocket is not waterproof.

To get the best performance out of your waterproof garment frequent washing and drying is recommended
Before washing ensure all zippers and closures are secure
Warm machine wash on gentle cycle using pure soap or Nikwax Tech Wash®
Do not bleach or use fabric softeners
Cool tumble dry. This is very important to rejuvenate the DWR finish
Do not dry clean
Apply a DWR restorer, such as Nikwax TX. Direct® to help prolong the life of your garment
A frequently washed garment is a well performing one

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

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.
