Master the elements with the Men’s Vertice Rain Pants. Gone are the days of getting soaked with hot, humid and unventilated rain gear. Our Vertice Rain Gear material is optimized to be lightweight without compromising on durability, and it is among the lightest possible choices for waterproof hyper-breathable rain gear.

Be sure to check out the rest of our Vertice Rain Gear.

  • Adjustable shock cord at the waist. The shock cord can be cinched down to any minimum.

  • Wide ankles will fit over most shoes up to US Men’s size 12.

  • Packs up tiny as shown. Roll the pants up and secure them with the waist elastic. No stuff sack necessary.

  • Repair tape sticks extremely well to the inside of the material so repairs in the field are a cinch. Tape will not stick to the exterior.

  • Combine these pants with a matching Jacket and Mitts for a super light rain suit!

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

  • Made in the USA.

1.92 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.

Vapor Transfer (JIS L 1099 Method B1): 56,000+ g/m^2/24hr

Water Resistance: >20,000 mmH₂O

Made in Japan.


Measuring:

Waist:

Use a string or cloth tape measure to measure around your waist and compare that to our "Fits Waist" measurement. Don't rely on your "pant size" as the waist varies from brand to brand and may not actually correspond to inches.

There is no zipper, so our pants are built with the waist line loose enough to come up over typical hips and fit over your normal hiking pants. There is an elastic waist band to cinch them down to any minimum size. Women with large hips may need to size up a waist size.

Length:

The inseam length corresponds to normal US Men's pant inseams.

  • 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.

These pants saved me

"I just wanted to give some feedback on my new rain pants for my section hike of the AT from Rutland, Vermont to Mt. Katahdin this summer. When I left Gentian Pond Shelter in Maine on July 12th, the rain had started. By the time I got to the top of Mt. Success it was sleeting so hard it was cutting my face. The rain pants saved me that day and performed great. I was wearing shorts underneath, but the fabric did not stick to my skin. I also wore them climbing Katahdin on August 7th. Although it was clear, the winds were a steady 70 mph and around 50 degrees. These pants saved me on both days. Thanks for a great product."

These pants are fantastic

"These pants are fantastic. I have hiked, bicycled and backcountry skied hundreds of miles in these pants. From rocky trails in freezing rain at 30 mph to sunny wet powder ski days these pants have seen it all and shrugged it off. In several inch rains from Washington downpours they do get damp but do not transfer water to your under layers. They are so light that sometimes I forget I have them on. The inseam options are quite helpful for mobility and fit."
