Unique ultralight rain protection at its finest, the Vertice Rain Robe provides the coverage of a trench coat at weight lower than most jackets. When the skies are overcast and the rain is pouring down, leave your rain pants at home and enjoy the superior protection and breathability of the Vertice Rain Robe.

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.

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.

Weight: 1.50oz/sqyd (51g/ m²)

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

Water Resistance: >20,000 mmH₂O


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 Rain Robes 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.

  • 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.

Vertice Rain Robe

Haven’t used it in the rain yet, but the coverage is great, at a really low weight. Saves 2 ounces over the Vertice Rain Jacket and DCF Rain Kilt combination The closures are different but work well. Thanks Zpacks for lowering my pack weight even more.

Simple but useful

Great to have while walking anywhere where it’s not going to be heavy rain. Nice and light but not that flattering
