1.50 oz/sqyd Vertice Waterproof Breathable Fabric

This three-layer material has a tricot lining to wick moisture away from your skin, a waterproof vapor permeable membrane in the middle, and 7 denier ripstop nylon on the exterior. The outer surface is treated with a durable "C6" water repellent. The Vertice fabric boasts an incredible breathability rating that blows away most other rain gear, including our previous generation fabrics.

Measuring:

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.
  • Tumble dry or line dry.

Vertice Jacket

Excellent customer service, excellent bit of kit. I’ve used it now in snow and cold - kept me dry, and helped as an outer wind blocking layer. Delighted with this

Tropical storm

Took the jacket and pants out in a tropical storm this week. At no stage did I get cold from the wind. It was 26 degrees Celsius though. The underarm zips helped with cooling. The length was great enough to not get my hands wet and the hood was able to be tightened over my cap to stay on in the breeze.

Great Rain Jacket

This is a very effective rain jacket and breathes exceptionally well. My only complaint would be that it does nothing to block wind. In its function as a a rain jacket, however, it beaded rain for five hours of continuous downpour and never wetted out. I’m a believer.
