Measure your chest using a string or cloth tape measure and go by the "Fits up to" size. The "Fits up to" size includes a few inches of wiggle room for layering. The jackets are straight cut (like Men's jackets) and do not flare out at the hips.
They are fine for women, but make sure your hips will fit the bottom hem girth, or size up. A women's specific version is also available here.
- Rain gear should only be washed as needed, after a few trips or if you notice that the DWR is not as effective as when new.
- Machine wash with Grangers Wash+Repel or similar product.

lightweight, well thought. Just be aware to order most likely one size above usual size.
I purchased the rain jacket for a CDT thru hike. For the price I expected more. The chest pocket blew out in the first three weeks of my hike after wearing it 2-3 times. I love the fit, weight, and features. What I didn’t like was how quickly the jacket wets out. I was bone dry the first 7 or so times I used the jacket. After that the jacket stopped preforming as I had hoped. The jacket now wets out in a matter of minutes even in a light rain. I’m back to my old rain suit that is 12 years old. Oh well, at least my duplex was amazing!
Excellent rain jacket
Amazingly lightweight and compact. Excellent design - good coverage from head to bum.
zpack lightweight rain jacket and pants
Before going to Iceland a few weeks ago, I was told don't bother bringing an umbrella, the winds are such that the rain is usually horizontal. So I heard about Zpack's lightweight rain gear and bought the jacket and pants. They are truly lightweight! And rain it did in Iceland, so the gear was very handy. I even was able to go behind a tall waterfall (of which there are many!) and stay dry.
Vertice Rain Jacket
I'm very pleased with the Vertice Rain Jacket. It kept me dry and comfortable in an all-day rain in the BWCAW and is compact and light weight in the pack.
