ALL ABOUT PAK-JAK (FULL FEATURES)
PAK-JAK is the world's newest backPAcKing JAcKet
When hiking in cold weather, it’s hard to stay at a comfortable temperature.
You start with warm layers on, but then you heat up and start sweating. You either stay overheated or shed layers and eventually freeze again.
You’re stuck in a loop.
PAK-JAK SOLVES THIS ISSUE.
PAK-JAK PROVIDES ON-THE-GO FLEXIBILITY that allows for consistent body
temperature regulation and comfort during your backpacking adventures.
Cool air can flow to your back and areas needed while your arms and core can stay warm and comfortable.
It's the best
of both worlds.
LIGHTWEIGHT AND FULL OF USEABLE FEATURES
QUALITY DESIGN AND ATTENTION TO DETAILS
PRIMALOFT GOLD INSULATION
We can spend days on the pros and cons of breathability versus waterproofing. We could write books on duck down versus goose down versus synthetics. We won't bore you with information most of you know, but we will list an overview:
Down is lightweight but useless when wet
Synthetic is warmer when wet but doesn't pack as well as down
PRIMALOFT is the best of both worlds
We decided to use PRIMALOFT for this reason. There are 3 standards of quality and we went straight for the best on the market, PRIMALOFT GOLD. We will share some quick overviews but please spend the time to do a quick internet search on this insulation if you have any doubts. Click the picture below to take you to the PRIMALOFT website.
PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation – the highest performing synthetic insulation available. The ultimate in warmth-to-weight available in a synthetic is coupled with incredible packability and softness that mimics goose down, all with excellent water-repellency for wet-weather protection.
As of 2020, PRIMALOFT has saved more than 339 MILLION PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES from entering landfills and oceans.
ZIPPER ANTI-CHAFE GUARD
Nothing worse than having a zipper catch hair or skin. These guards help protect beards, skin, and long hair from getting caught in the zipper.
We didn't even think twice about using the best zippers on the market.
There is a six-button connection for the hood. It can be attached and detached with ease. When there is no back and you are using the 2nd and 5th snap to connect your shoulder straps to your backpack, the hood still connects to the first and last snaps.
You can also use the back strap instead of connecting to your backpack.
It uses the same button snaps as the lower straps. You can't use both at the same time.
UNIVERSAL LOWER STRAPS
The lower straps can also be attached to your backpack and connect to the Pak-Jak at the lower snaps.
UNIVERSAL SHOULDER STRAPS
The upper straps hold the Pak-Jak in place. They can be attached to virtually any backpack you own and adjusted before leaving your house.
They stay attached to the backpack and connect to the Pak-Jak with a snap.
INTERCHANGEABLE MESH BACK PANEL
Although our design works and will be used mostly without a back, we are offering a mesh back panel.
This panel is completely interchangeable with the puffy back panel and uses the same YKK zippers.
This allows you to wear the Pak-Jak as a normal jacket while still getting some additional airflow to your back.
