An outstanding choice for quick touring with a light pack: the Mayar Paclite Jacket by Berghaus! This hardshell jacket has a slim, minimalistic design and should always be with you when you need reliable weather protection as well as a low weight and small packed dimensions.
Its Gore-Tex Paclite fabric is waterproof, windproof and impressively breathable. This Berghaus jacket also has a DWR treatment and ripstop reinforcements. This keeps the jacket breathable, even on extended tours and makes the fabric more robust. The hardshell jacket can be stored in the stuff sack that comes with it for trips or trekking tours to ensure it fits into every backpack. Another high quality feature of the Mayar Paclite Jacket is of course its completely waterproof sealed seams and water repellent zippers.
The hood is completely adjustable and provides a fantastic field of vision en route. Berghaus preformed the sleeves on this jacket which keeps you moving and unrestricted. This hardshell jacket has a somewhat longer cut on the back and its waistband as well as sleeve cuffs can be easily adjusted. The minimalistic design does not feature any unnecessary details. The jacket simply features two spacious pockets with enough space to keep your hands warm or store your absolute essentials.
For hiking or trekking, or as a lightweight reserve jacket in your touring backpack: the Berghaus Mayar Paclite Jacket is a fantastic addition to every well equipped backpack!
Note: Gore-Tex Active products were designed to meet the demands of the light traveler on the move, so your backpack might not be the ideal place to store it.
