The Packa...Full Coverage Backpacking Rain Parka

830 ratings | 21773 views
The Packa....http://www.thepacka.com How does the Packa do it? The Packa combines the benefits of a rain jacket/pack cover and poncho and eliminates the drawbacks of each. The Packa is placed on the pack as a pack-cover at first and the jacket section is donned when needed without removing your pack. Huge pit vents, pocket, and dual separating front zipper all function properly and efficiently because they are not under your backpack's shoulder straps, sternum strap and waist belt. The Packa is worn over your backpack rather than under it. This creates the airspace needed for proper ventilation. Once there is airspace, then the large ventilation zips are able to successfully make the exchange of heated and cool air. Breathable fabrics are able to operate as well. Sizing Info The nylon Packas (33 Denier Sil/Pu coated nylon and 20 Denier Sil/Pu coated nylon) are available in five sizes: Small/Medium/Large and MediumX/LargeX. The 33d Packas are $122.50 + $7.50 shipping. The 20d Packas are $142.50 + $7.50 shipping. Unless you are a very large person, sizing for the Packa really only depends on your height and packsize. The Packa is made very large in the jacket part to aid in air circulation. The small is best for people 5'7 and below. Medium for 5'8 to 6'. Large for above 6'. Backpacks with a volume of 4000ci or 65 liters work best with the small, medium, or large Packa. Above 4000ci or 65 liters require the "x" size. The Medium size is my former “one size fits all” size. I tried to hit the middle of the road with the Medium to accomodate “most” long distance hikers regarding body size and pack size. Draw strings on the bottom hem, sleeves, and hood allow hikers to cinch the Packa down and adjust the fit. The sleeve length from hood seam to the end of the sleeve is 30 inches for the Small, 32 inches for the Medium and 34 inches for the Large. The length of the jacket from bottom of the hood along the front zipper to the bottom of the jacket is 34 inches the Small, 36 inches for the Medium and 38 inches for the Large. The girth of the jacket along the drawstring at the bottom hem of the jacket 56 inches the Small, 60 inches for the Medium and 64 inches for the Large. The Small/Medium/Large Packas have the same packcover size at around 4000 ci or 65 liters. The packcover dimensions are roughly about 9 inches deep by 12 inches wide by 29 inches tall. The packcover also has 3 inch pleats on both sides at both the top and bottom increasing the volume beyond simply 9 x 12 x 29. The MediumX and LargeX sizes have the same jacket size as the regular Medium and Large Packa, but have slightly larger packcovers– up to about 5000 ci or 80 liters. Size Small is not available with the “X” size packcover. The packcover dimensions for the “X” size Packas are about 11 inches deep by 12 inches wide by 32 inches tall. The “X” size packcovers also have the 3 inch pleats that increase volume. The eVent Packas are only available in the Small, Medium, and Large sizes. The eVent Packas have the same dimensions as the nylon Packas above. The eVent Packa is NOT available in MediumX and LargeX. The eVent Packa weighs about 16 oz. for the Small, 17 oz. for the Medium, and 18 oz. for the Large. Only the jacket part is made with eVent material–the packcover part is the 33D nylon fabric used in the regular Packa. The eVent Packa only comes in dark olive. The cost for the eVent Packa is $260.00 + $10.00 shipping for the US and $42.50 shipping for International orders

Haha love that long way catch! Do you find it ok to wear the parka without a packsack?
shugemery (5 months ago)
It works just fine that way too.
MATTHEW JACOBS (7 months ago)
So you have to have your backpack on to have rain protection
shugemery (7 months ago)
Nope...you can still wear it without the backpack. I've done that a lot.

Shug, I want one. But I'm not sure they're still being made...seems like things are winding down on the website. Also: please, please, keep wearing the pink seersuckers. They are the best.
Nancy Rogge (1 year ago)
shugemery- yes, he says he has a few 30d left, he's switching to a new manufacturer and so there's been an interruption in production
shugemery (1 year ago)
I seems to have 30D in stock eVent. Contact him to be sure. Good luck.

Bushcraft Baking (1 year ago)
Heya Shug, thanks for the video. The Packa looks really good. Does water pool in the area between your neck and the pack? That little square piece of plastic you carry sure sees a lot of use :) Cheerio!
shugemery (1 year ago)
Never had it pool there as far as I know. I cherish that small plastic square. Thankee.

I have seen that. I'll stick with my tarp set up. Tried hammock socks and always just have too much moisture inside with me.

Hey there shug, I wanted to ask about green bean, or more what you use now that green bean is gone.
shugemery (1 year ago)
My new Greenbean, My Chameleon, Blackbird XLC. I switch around a lot. I'm a man of many hammocks.
j lin (1 year ago)
i got a fix for you cold nights in the Hammock take copper tubing put around the fire then heat tubeing like in a cpu water cooler run it to a water can then to the hammock butt worm all night my two bits save on the bulk in the back
shugemery (1 year ago)
McGiver-ish.
Steve Jaeger (1 year ago)
Cool stuff Shug - thanks for sharing. Smart idea to carry the tarp in the side pocket.
Shane Coffey Outdoors (1 year ago)
Awesome. Keeping this one in mind
shugemery (1 year ago)
Yessir.
At 12 oz, the light weight guy in me wants to see this done with cuban fiber, however then it probably becomes a $300+ item...
mikelisacarb (1 year ago)
The eVent one is amazingly heavy, however!
shugemery (1 year ago)
True. He does make one with eVent.
Great bit of kit, I gotta say it though shug, your ad lib lyrics to your make it up as you go songs, ain't gonna top the charts. 😂😂😂😂😂, just pulling your leg shug, as always, great presentation
shugemery (1 year ago)
Just spitballing)))))
Fred Thorne (1 year ago)
The Packa pack a peck a packing. You also put pounds a pennies to procure the pricey Packa. So, probably put off purchasing a Packa cause I lacka the scratcha. It's the ol' hole in the Hefty for this lefty. But it's a lovely garment. Che Bella, Ciao
shugemery (1 year ago)
a pretty penny for the Packa
Raymond Meadows (1 year ago)

You could stack to UQs or use a pad to supplement a UQ. It usually gets below 0º.

Glad to hear that!

Love the sweet Orange Crush t-shirt.
shugemery (1 year ago)
Nice soft shirt.
major masingil (1 year ago)
It's a great piece of gear if you plan on doing a lot of hiking. If you're a car camper, or plan on hiking in and staying in an area for a while it might not be the most practical purchase. If I were doing anything where I would be spending my days primarily walking on a trail, this little beaut is a no-brainer. The Packa is one of those pieces of gear that make trail life a little better.
shugemery (1 year ago)
Best for the backpack trip.

I did. First one is still good. Just a couple of small tears. Went to buy another and he offered me a freebie for all the sales he got from folks seeing the first one I have used for years.

Discovered this a few months ago. He's been making these things a long time but it seemed like not many folks knew about him. Glad to see this featured here. It's a great design specifically for backpackers that solves a lot of problems with other systems.

DEFINITELY on my "gear to get" list! I'm a 5-foot-tall woman and I will be backpacking with a ULA Ohm pack, so I think the small will work fine. ☺

They have been around a while. Had mine since 2010. It has served me well.

You know Shug , you actually look good in the packa ! Go figure !
shugemery (1 year ago)
Also look good in a parka!
Walk Michigan (1 year ago)
That's a really neat looking rain jacket, but it's quite pricey. I'll be passing on this one, but if you a really serious hiker, or have a lot of expendable income, then enjoy it.
shugemery (1 year ago)
I just wanted to show it as I get asked about it a good bit. It has been worth it to me for my backpacking quests.
LoganRB01 (1 year ago)
Your the best Shug 👍🏻
William Burr (1 year ago)
Where did you get all your material . . . from Red Skelton? Hey, thanks, Shug, for all the information on the unique piece of gear.
shugemery (1 year ago)
Just off the cuff stuff.
6bluestrings (1 year ago)
MightyFine!!! thank you very much. my packa goes with me on every trip. it makes a good pillow, when it's dry. more than once, i've zipped it around the foot end of hammock for added warmth.
shugemery (1 year ago)
I like the cut of your jib!
Kevin Outdoors (1 year ago)
Nice. I have been thinking of getting something like that. I sweat like crazy in my expensive gor-tex jacket in warm weather rain. I often decide to just get wet and put on dry clothes and rain gear at camp.
shugemery (1 year ago)
The venting is the best part for those reasons.
Manolo Mandevo (1 year ago)
ouh SHUG, you're so cool and so funny... i love you, really. ( dont get afraid now, hahaha)

I so scared! Thankee.

Mike Shelton (1 year ago)
Great review as usual. I appreciate all that you do, the way that you do all that you do. Will we see a review of that new Super fly tarp?
shugemery (1 year ago)
It is in a few trip reports. Just a tarp with doors. Big. Not planned on reviewing it. But one never knows. Great tarp.
Hammock Dave (1 year ago)
another good gear review. tell you the truth i think im a fanboy of yours. you keep me interested through ou the vid even if im not going to buy it. good job!
shugemery (1 year ago)
I do the videos to occupy myself.
panzerabwerkanone (1 year ago)
You could put the handles of your hiking poles in your hip pockets, the tips of the poles out the sleeves and turn your Packa into a personal hang glider for a quick flight down Linville Gorge! I'm sure it's covered by the manufacturer. right?
shugemery (1 year ago)
I'll try it off Shortoff!
David Lazarus (1 year ago)
I like it . The fact that you can literally take it off but still leave it covering the pack is good and so much easier than having to take off the pack to get a rain jacket out of the pack pocket. Personally I think I would use that big mesh pocket for holding a tarp, then you could hang the tarp all without removing the pack at all. Very clever idea and less likely to lose your pack cover if it is also your jacket.
shugemery (1 year ago)
Everytime I use it I think how much I like it.
Chet Volz (1 year ago)
Purchased the packa and the ULA rain kilt about a year ago. Really pleased with both. I am an old bushcrafter and decided I wanted to go light for a change. Most of my purchases have been at your recommendation and you havent steered me wrong yet! Thanks for the video!
shugemery (1 year ago)
Ahhh...the pressure now!
Jeff Vollmer (1 year ago)
If you think that material cost $40 you is cray cray. Anyhow, I didn't say it didn't work right, I was interested until I saw the price, no way I pay $120 for a small, thin nylon tarp that's way oversized and bulky. I like the concept- no gap between the pack and you body therefore the pack is dry all the way around. $50 and I might be a player, not $120.
shugemery (1 year ago)
Just showing it Jeff. Really...not twisting your arm to buy it. Just video fodder.
Tclucke (1 year ago)
These are custom made for your pack. Cedartree asked me what specific pack I have so he could size it for that pack. I used one for 2 months last Summer on the AT. I would buy it again.

Matt Minium (1 year ago)
So enjoyable to watch and that is a great cover. I'm disappointed I bouught one of your t-shirts and wear it in high public areas and still did not encounter another shug fan. But I know they are out there. Just a matter of time until I meet someone who enjoys your videos as much as me. I'm sure we'll become instead best friends. Thanks
shugemery (1 year ago)
Most Shug folk are in the deep woods!
A G (1 year ago)
Hiking over the summer I learned to accept the rain. Fast drying light clothes stay wet for maybe an hour. The only thing I really worry about it wet feet. Cool idea for cooler climates though imo.
shugemery (1 year ago)
Works up here in sligthly cool rain.
CampfireTalk (1 year ago)
vampires... hah What I like most about the packa is its multi-use features. Definitely made with the backpacker in mind while on the move. As any camper knows, you're gonna get a little damp out there : )
shugemery (1 year ago)
For sure for the blood suckng backpacker.
Andrew Offer (1 year ago)
to many good bits to comment on.loved the vampire bit at the end. there's definitely a bit of bela lugosi in there somewhere.

Haaa! Thankee.
Id use it , thanks shug : )

Larry Vickery (1 year ago)
It's called overhead expense. The material alone probably costs more than $40, It's also complex and labor intensive and made in the USA with workmanship pride characteristic of domestic cottage industry.

Gear price subjective. Vampires not so much.
wdcsucks1 (1 year ago)
seems like an ideal summer hiking in the rain solution!
Dan H (1 year ago)
Have to agree. I really like the idea of being able to, essentially, put your rain jacket on or take it off as you walk. Without having to take off your pack. For those days where is starts and stops raining every half hour.
shugemery (1 year ago)
That is it's strength.

Whiskers Briarwood (1 year ago)
So I bet all the folks who do t like the price of the Packa have no problem spending $150 on a tarp or $60+ on a hammock. Both of which are basically fabric sewn into a square shape.... I have a packa, yes they are pricey, but completely worth the money in my opinion. I have never had a better rain coat option for backpacking.
panzerabwerkanone (1 year ago)
I hear what you're saying. I have military goretex jackets that don't do half what this does and they were close to $100 surplus!
shugemery (1 year ago)
Much better than my old poncho. Good gear costs.

Shug,you always make my day!!!!! I like the packa it's just way way over priced! Dutch help!!!!!! You can do it!

In warm-ish weather it does a great job.
Saline Scott (1 year ago)
That's the first I have seen of the packa. Petty cool and great idea.

A very different piece of gear.
William Ball (1 year ago)
from china :( me sad, no buy. Come on Dutch, steal this idea and make it here in the good old USA.

hope you are not on a computer or smart phone... wait you should just stop using that too!

Yeah. But.
Justin Fite (1 year ago)
Your videos are awesome, really like watching them. The Packa looks very versatile and I will probably get one. It's the difference in being wet or dry in the woods with versatility and pit vents lol. Thanks again for your time and videos.
Larry Vickery (1 year ago)
That's what sets it above the others. Poorly ventilated rainwear is misery
shugemery (1 year ago)
The ventilation is key for me.

Stitches (1 year ago)
It would be great to be able to roll them up and velcro or something else to hold them up at your shoulders and easily accessible.
shugemery (1 year ago)
It can just hang off the backpack until needed.
G Henrickson (1 year ago)
Stitches : no Velcro is needed or wanted. Works great as is. The key to the packa is its loose fit and rapid partial or full deployment. Deploys fast and early....EARLY!
Arctic Gator (1 year ago)
It was cool until i saw the price, as cool as it is it is way too overpriced.
Tclucke (1 year ago)
These are custom made for your pack. Cedartree asked me what specific pack I have so he could size it for that pack. I used one for 2 months last Summer on the AT. I would buy it again.

An oldie yet a goodie! Years ago, I bought an eVent packa second-hand from a nice fella at hammockforums. It really...elevated my perspective! I liked the "jacket-like" feel of the eVent (although heavier vs. Silnylon) and it continues to deliver me comfy hikes here in Coffee Crispanada. Good people, good product. Keep preachin' the powers of the piney woods Shug!
shugemery (1 year ago)
I love the ventilation and deployment options. Thankee 'eh.

Awesome product. But, if its not on Amazon does it exist?
shugemery (1 year ago)
Hmmmm...kinda true.
Bryan Stewart (1 year ago)
I have a packa and have used it like 3 times. I have a few concerns. It is a bit tight trying to go around my AG 65. Material is really thin and I have already gotten a few snags in it. So still trying to make up my mind about it. But thinking good idea just not very practical for me. But this video helps a lot.
Larry Vickery (1 year ago)
If Shug is not a hiker there's no hope for the rest of us to claim it.
Hammock Dave (1 year ago)
well the peeps i was responding to deleted their comment. so it doesn't make sense. shug's a great hiker
Larry Vickery (1 year ago)
Hammock Dave Shug is not a true hiker? What is your definition?
Larry Vickery (1 year ago)
Not for bushwhacking. Common sense should prevail. Few hikers go off trail.

It is delicate for a bushwack.

Ok so you don't like the packa...fine. Don't buy one. All Shug did was tell you about it. He didnt use his sexy vampire powers to compell you to purchase.
