Not a Pac a Mac

When it arrived tried it on OK. Very creased.
However when I tried to get it back in the pocket, it was most difficult, gave up after 20 mins.
It should come with a bag.
Had to return it, and after a week am still awaiting a refund!

Pack it jacket...not?

At the moment I’m joining with others about the packing. Like the jacket, and would probably rate it higher, but can’t fine the video to help with folding it up into the pocket. I’ve clicked on the link and typed it in carefully. Could there not be a video added to the one with all the pictures, or along with the care/ Nikki wax information? At the moment I’m about to head out into possible showery weather and would really like to make use of it! Frustrating.

Hi Ann,
Thanks for taking the time to review the Pack It Jacket, but we're really sorry you were unable to find the instruction video, which can be found by scrolling down to the final photo on the item page. I'll ensure that the relevant team are notified about this.
To maintain your coat’s optimum performance, we recommend two products manufactured by a company called Nikwax. One of the products called ‘Nikwax Tech Wash’ can be used an alternative to your usual non-biological detergent. This product washes the coat properly, removing all the dirt from the microscopic pores so the coat remains breathable – we suggest you use this every time you wash it.
The other product we suggest is ‘Nikwax TX Direct Wash-in’ which helps to restore the ‘bounce out’ waterproofing finish on the coat, enabling the rain to bead and run off.
There will be more detailed instructions on the bottles, however, please don’t combine the products in your machine as they must be used in two separate washes – using them together will cause a glue like effect and will ruin your beautiful coat!
We hope this helps and you are able to enjoy wearing your lovely jacket.
Best wishes Seasalt

Pocket Pack-it or not to Pocket Pack-it?

Whilst I like the jacket and the idea that it folded into its own pocket is the reason I bought it, but how on earth do you get it into the pocket? I have watched the Seasalt video (which runs too fast to follow) and I have spent almost an hour trying to get the jacket into its own pocket. Disappointing. I would rather it came with a little matching bag.

Potentially useful Mac

This was my first purchase from sea salt. I liked the pattern on the Mac very much when it arrived but unfortunately the first Mac had a manufacturing defect on the front button interface. Luckily I was able to return it to the store to get a replacement in time for my holiday. I can’t comment on the quality of the waterproofing yet but I was a bit disappointed about the quality control.

The first jacket I ordered was way too big. I found it impossible to repack in the pocket so returned it without doing so. The second order was a reasonable fit and I liked the pattern and the weight but again impossible to refit in the pocket so kind of defeated the purpose of a packit jacket. However I shall keep it.

After reading all the positive reviews about this rain jacket, I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of my order, and looking forward to wearing the jacket. However, when the item arrived, I was surprised at how flimsy the material felt and although the design motif was unusual, the raincoat itself did nothing for me. I felt that the hood was ill-fitting and didn't feel comfortable. I agree with other comments regarding the time it would take to re-pack into its pocket!
Unfortunately, I returned it as I did not consider it worth the price.

a fairly good jacket that could be better

I am pleased with my new jacket and unlike other reviewers I like the buttons, preferring them to a zip - I don't care for zips in coats or jackets as scarves can be easily snagged and buttons give you more options: eg. you can just button at the top. However, the hood is too small! At least another cm would be needed to make this fit me. I have curly hair, the hood just does not suit anyone with hair bigger than lanky. As the hood is small it does not protect my glasses from rain. So now if it's really chucking it down I am going to have to use an umbrella. Hmm... the design is pattern is pleasant enough, I was not buying this for a fashion statement. But shame I can't keep my hair or glasses/face dry.

Pack it

I chose the sunflowers jacket which co-ordinates well and is a pretty print. My usual size fitted well and I liked the shape. However, I returned the jacket for the same reason as many others, the packing. I followed the on-line tutorial successfully but felt that this would be awkward when out and about.

Slightly disappointing

It would be useful to say clearly that the jacket is blue, because several photos look grey and that it what I really wanted, though the blue is perfectly attractive. I usually buy XL sizes, but my measurements fitted the size described on thee website. Really though it's rather tight. The XL size would have been much too big. First time I've had this problem with Seasalt! The buttons are very big and the buttonholes small, so fastening the jacket is a rather lengthy process - not good if you want to slip it on quickly in the rain! Haven't actually worn the jacket yet, but didn't want to return it because I haven't seen a similar jacket which looks attractive rather than a hiking outfit.

Needs a packing diagram!

Gorgeous pattern of rain clouds but impossible to pack back into its pocket even with the written instructions! I find myself getting damp rather than facing having to fold it back up when out and about, because it takes a flat surface, the printed instructions and three or four attempts to get it right. Visual diagrams please and then I'd give it 5 stars!
