Vertice Rain Kilt
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.
If you're not into a kilt but still into staying dry, check out the rest of our Rain Gear.
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./p>
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.

Unconventional but effective
I used the kilt only once, in heavy rain. It was easy to put on and to remove, and it protected my legs well. However I got some funny remarks from the women in the group. I replied with jokes about my hairy legs. The kilt is so light, it's worth putting it in the pack whatever the weather forecast is.
Perfect for Philmont
Great choice for Philmont trek
