The kilt packs down to nothing and very very light weight. Far better than carrying rain trousers at 5 times plus for weight. The kilt is very easy to use quickly and no need to take boots off. A great idea that keeps you dry with good quality materials and finish. Arrived quickly when ordered.

The Vertice Kilt is a unique solution to staying cool in warm weather storms, and is a great option for ultralight waist to knee rain protection. It can also be worn as a stand alone item on laundry day. The Vertice Rain Kilt works great when combined with our Vertice Rain Jacket or Groundsheet Poncho.

Also available in a lighter weight Dyneema Composite Fabric DCF Rain Kilt version.

  • The back of the kilt can be opened or closed with a waterproof separating zipper. The zipper will never blow open or leak.  

  • This kilt has a conical shape that is wider at the bottom to allow for a longer stride. You can unzip it as necessary if the hem is not large enough for your stride.

  • The waist has a shock cord drawstring that can be cinched down to any smaller waist size.

  • When opened flat the kilt can be used as a small ground cloth for breaks or for storing gear on wet ground. The kilt has reinforced tie out loops at the four corners, and at the center of the sides for other uses.

  • Packs up tiny. Just roll the kilt up and secure it with the waist elastic. No stuff sack necessary.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.
