Master the elements with the Men’s Vertice Rain Pants. Gone are the days of getting soaked with hot, humid and unventilated 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.
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.
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.
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.

Mostly Awesome, one gripe
I have a 34” waist, got a large, thinking bigger would help with moisture management. A bit baggy in the seat, but fits pretty well. Elastic cord and lineloc at the waist lets you cinch it to whatever size you need. Took it on a 300 mile section of the AT. Driving rain and wind in Grayson Highlands, but stayed warm and dry. Another day was 65 degrees, light rain and fog all day, didn’t overheat. In warmer weather I got hot in these pants but breathability is way better than most rain pants in my opinion. Light, compact, dry quickly. My gripe? Website says they slip over boots, up to a size 13. I had an awful time getting them over my size 9 mid top hikers. Ended up with mud from my boots all over the inside of the pant legs of the rain pants. I’d happily give up an ounce or two of weight to get an 8-10” zipper on each leg to help getting them on and off. Overall, highly recommend.
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."
