Vertice Rain Jacket for wife

Only used once so far. Used as windbreaker, she hasn’t had it in the rain yet. Quality workmanship that we expect from Zpacks is present in this jacket.

Great rain jacket

I really like my rain jacket it is very light weight. The jacket is great for hiking. I wish it had pockets is the only thing it is missing.

Quality jacket but sizing needs to improve

It’s a nice jacket and overall is made well. The sewing isn’t the neatest in some areas, but shouldn’t affect the performance. Despite these positives, the sizing for this jacket is substantially off industry standards for an outerwear jacket, especially when considering layers that would typically be worn underneath. Example - even for the size that I received, being the largest option available that worked for my build, opening the pit zippers with a couple of layers worn underneath is a bit strained since the sizing of the upper sleeve and armhole is a bit too tight. It’s a real plus having the actual sizes of the garments on the website to navigate which size to order, but I am a 5’7” 150# male and needed to order a women’s XL because the sizing for the men’s jackets is so out of sync with what I’d typically find in any other mainstream brand of rain jacket. I’m typically a men’s medium and was able to work it out well enough with a women’s XL but at this price point, I’d expect a better reflection of garment research and sizing construction. Hopefully this can be changed for the benefit of others.

Quality products but sizing doesn’t match industry standards

I’m looking forward to using the Vertice Rain jacket, but one point that I think is worth mentioning is that the sizing of this garment (& all the measurements for the mens & womens jackets) is significantly off from industry standards as an outwear jacket. Considering the layers that one would typically wear under this jacket, the sizing seems to be geared towards models that are either atypical in body measurements or very thin in many areas. I think some more research in standards of measurements for jackets or garments in general would help make the sizing more consistent with what someone would expect when buying a Packs garment.
