Be Prepared for Anything by Carrying a Waterproof Pac A Mac

Light drizzle, a torrential downpour, or a mustard stain on your shirt: Be prepared for anything life throws at you with a waterproof Pac a Mac. Once purely a functional item for emergency use, modern Pac a Macs are high quality and fashionable enough to pull off at nearly any occasion. On eBay, you can find a wide selection of new and used pack away raincoats from all your favourite brands, with options to suit a range of budgets and lifestyles.

Is a waterproof pac a mac a good choice for a child?

Yes, the lightweight packable nature of a Pac a Mac makes it a great choice for children who will get fussy if they're not wearing the right clothes, but can't be relied on to keep their possessions organised and secure. Slip a waterproof Pac a Mac in the bottom of your child's school bag and rest assured that they'll have protection if they need it. Scrunch another in a side pocket of your diaper bag to be ready for anything. Pac a Macs won't take up much space in your handbag or briefcase, making them a great choice for adults, too.

Which Pac a Mac is right for you?

There's a wide range of packable jackets on the market today, and all features are not suitable for everyone. Depending on where you're planning to wear the jacket, you'll find success with different styles. Here are a few types to consider:

  • Lightweight windbreaker: This is a great choice if you're going to carry the jacket daily, but won't rely on it for long periods in the rain.
  • Waterproof, full-length Pac a Mac: Prepare for intense inclement weather with a fully waterproof jacket that provides leg coverage. This is too bulky for light use but great if you want taped seams and breathable waterproof fabric.
  • Fashion statement raincoat: A men's Pac a Mac or a women's Mac in a Sac raincoat can brighten a grey day and express your personality through bold colours and signature prints. Not a great choice if you're hoping to blend into the background.
Is it important to get a pac a mac with a hood?

If you want a pack away jacket that's waterproof and fully protects you from wind and rain, a hood is a good idea. It's important to remember that hoods can get in the way, though, so if you don't expect to need the hood very often you might consider going without one. A good compromise is a hood that zips away into the collar, which removes some of the bulk.
