Unpredictable weather is all part of the thrill of adventure, but having the right gear can make all the difference to your comfort. Let’s face it, being soggy to the bone on the trails is no one’s cup of fun. Enter the Origin II Jacket by Mac in a Sac.
The Origin II
At the very heart of Mac in a Sac’s collection, this compact jacket boasts versatility, performance and convenience. Though we think of it as more than just a jacket, it’s a reliable companion. A friend that’ll be there for you when you need it most in the great outdoors.
The Origin II Jacket offers an array of impressive features; it’s packable and lightweight, so it won’t weigh you down on the move, and it boasts a highly waterproof design. From drizzle to serious downpour, you’ll stay dry with its waterproof level of 10,000mm. Meanwhile, this weatherproof wonder’s fully taped seams and water repellent YKK front zip will give you a little added bonus of extra protection.
With a rating of 8,000gsm, the Origin II Jacket is also breathable, helping your body to regulate its temperature whilst you’re working hard on the trails. The windproof fabric ensures that weather conditions won’t stand in the way of your adventure (even when it’s blowing a hoolie).
Blending functionality with style, this unisex jacket comes in a plethora of snazzy colours; from black and khaki to tiffany blue and neon watermelon. The concealed adjustable hood, elasticated cuffs, and adjustable drawcord provide a customisable experience, allowing you to quickly adapt the jacket to the ever-changing conditions of the Great British weather.
We love the jacket’s relaxed fit, which leaves plenty of room underneath for layering up when it’s chilly. It also includes an adjustable hem, ensuring that every adventurer can enjoy exploring with comfort and confidence.
In a Sac
One of the standout features of the Origin II Jacket is its epic packability. It’s super easy to pack and unpack into its matching sack, so you’re always ready to grab it when nature throws the elements your way. Another great feature is the back venting, which enhances airflow, and the reflective detailing ensures you stay visible even during after-dark adventures.
For the eco conscious adventurers, you’ll be pleased to know that Mac in a Sac takes pride in its commitment to the environment. The Origin II Jacket is PFC and PFOA-free, meaning that harmful per-poly fluorocarbon chemicals are out of the question. The company understands the importance of enjoying nature whilst preserving it for our future generation of adventurers – this gets a big fat green tick from us.
Priced at £37.50, we think the Origin II Jacket is an absolute steal. Who said a high-performing outdoor jacket needs to make your bank account cry? Not the chaps at Mac in a Sac.
