The main problem with a stack pack type cover, especially if you have the lines led back to the cockpit, is that the Mack Pack makes it difficult to see when you've got good shape on the reefed mainsail. Other than that, they're quite good for main sail furling and control.
However, you can get almost the same amount of control with a good lazy jack system. The Mack Pack is pretty expensive, given what it does.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
