    SOLD: eVent Packa

    It is red 3 layer eVent with a silnylon pack cover. (The regular packa's are all made from silnylon, ie: no breathable material)
    Probably used total for about 8 days of use, Rest of the time it's just been either a pillow or extra weight in the pack.
    Recently washed in sports wash and the DWR is like new. It beads awesome (All the eVent I have beads better than most of the Goretex I have owned)

    Excellent rain jacket. Very long in cut and it has a great extra long drop tail piece of eVent (unlike most others)
    It's been a great coat and the function is great. Trust me I sweat a lot and dont in this.
    Between the eVent, huge pit zips and loose fit it's very breathable.
    I just have too many shells. I have a bub on the way and once it's here I will have to use more regular shells with a baby backpack. Poor kid would suffocate under the pack cover part.
    Weighs in at 436grams.
    If your unsure what exactly a packa is have a look here:
    http://www.thepacka.com/
    Or do a google search and read all the much loved reviews.
    It's nice to keep all your gear and pack straps dry as the packa covers all.

    This one is a size Small but I normally wear a size large jacket and it swims on me.
    I'm 5'11" and the arm length is perfect for me (Hence why I have the small as they run huge)
    I have a 50ltr pack and the cover fits like a glove. Would probably fit up to about a 65ltr pack. Plenty of adjustment to suit smaller packs.
    The size thing is mainly the pack cover and arm length. The torso and length are the same on all the packa's (Or so I recall when I emailed eddie when purchasing)

    I'm in Australia but will gladly post worldwide.
    Selling for $155 USD including worldwide postage.
    Payment via paypal gift.

    I love eVent fabric and wish it was more widely available! I have a Big Agnes Sarvis SL-1 hybrid tent with eVent on half the tent and double walled on the other half. It has never leaked and I never get condensation. Theystopped producing them because of what happens if fire touches it. According to BA, fire + eVent = Poof!

    If I didn't have one and if this were an XL I'd jump.
    This is a collectors item. It will probably never be made again.
    It breaths super well and covers a fulled stuffed Ohm or Circuit perfectly.
    Now the BRIGHT RED color may be a turn off for some but there are times
    when you need to be seen 5 miles away in the winter woods.
    Great garment and kudos to who ever ends up with it.
    Typing this I reflect back to my Sipsey trip where I stood under a waterfall testing
    it.....9 seconds into this vid:

    Pigslayer, not trying to help you offload the product but it is a stellar piece of kit.

    Wow

    400 views, a few big bites and some great feedback on the product but no sale ??
    Did I mention that "worldwide" postage is in the price ??

    Oh well, here's a bump.

    I really thought this would have been snapped up fast.

    I agree

    this is a good deal. I am getting more eVent Packas, but my price from my manufacturer went up over 10% so the retail price for eVent Packas will go up when they arrive in 5 to 6 months.

    If you've been looking at getting an eVent Packa, you will not get one this cheap from me.

    Good luck Pig Slayer.
