Men's Vertice Rain Jacket
Could be the best rain jacket on the market. Keeps you dry from the rain outside and dry on the inside as it is very breathable.
When the skies are overcast and the rain is pouring down, our ultralight Vertice Rain Jacket offers superior protection and breathability. Our Vertice material is optimized to be lightweight without compromising on durability, and it is among the lightest possible choices for waterproof hyper-breathable rain gear.

Made in the USA.
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.
- Air or line dry. DO NOT dry using a dryer.
- pit zips

Great Service and a Great Rain Jacket!
First, thank you to Amber for the fantastic customer service! I ordered a men's medium based on the measurements (rather than a women's medium), and I was unsure of the fit when I received it. I sent photos of myself wearing the jacket, and Amber took them to the design team to verify that it was the correct fit. I appreciated this so much! I was then able to test the jacket in the pouring rain on the Long Trail in Vermont for 3 days. The long fit was perfect for backpacking and keeping me dry, and the pit zips helped keep me from getting too overheated. And the 5.9 oz is much better than the 9.5 oz of my old jacket (which had less coverage). I'm very happy with my new jacket!
Buying my second set
I bought my first vertice jacket,pants and mittens in aug 2017 for its super light weight and compact size for an ultra endurance bike race. I crashed and tore it in a few places and I patched it with tenacious tape. They are still going strong. These are the best gear I have. I use them more for cold weather gear than rain gear on my bike but they are great in the rain too. They may not keep me dry on the bike, but they keep me comfortable in rain and cold with under layers. I am buying my second set so that I don’t have to keep stealing them from my bike gear.
