What's wrong with my rain jacket?
No matter how much you paid for your "breathable" rain jacket, the sad truth is that without air circulation underneath the garment, the fabric just won't breathe. Period. It's simple physics. Your backpack's straps will prevent air circulation over most of your torso. The Packa solves this problem with a simple yet elegant solution.
How does the Packa do it?
The Packa does two things. First, it combines the concept of a rain jacket and a pack cover. Second and more importantly, you wear the Packa 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.
What else does the Packa do?
The Packa will protect your backpack from the inevitable soak-through. This will happen in any other scenario because your pack's straps are not protected from the rain. Your straps will be soaked and will wick all throughout your backpack. Having your backpack completely covered by the Packa avoids this problem entirely.

The first time I put this on I thought how much of a no brainer can this be? It is such a simple design, but ingenious! The fit and function of the Packa are so well thought out that it almost puts itself on.
