They do what they’re supposed to do without adding hardly any weight. For any item so useful when needed this is the best option I’ve found. Thank you.

Stay dry during those grueling climbs in the rain with the Women’s Vertice Pants. Gone are the days of hot, humid, and unventilated rain gear. Our Vertice fabric 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 Women’s size 12.

    • Dual adjustment ankle snaps.

    • 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.

1.50 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


Hips: Use a string or cloth tape measure to measure around the fullest part of your hips, and compare that to our "Fits Hips" measurement.

There is no zipper. Our pants are built with the waist loose enough to come up over the specified hips and cinch tight over your normal hiking pants at the waist. The elastic waist band can cinch down to any minimum waist size.

  • 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.

Worlds most lightweight rain pants

Couldn’t believe how tiny these pants folded up! They give great rain protection without the weight of the usual ones. Two thumbs up!

Overall very good

Overall I am very happy with these rain pants. They are a simple design and will very easily slip over my shoes if I need to take them off. I wear an 8/10 pants and ordered the large. My hip size was on the verge of needing the XL but I ordered the L and they are plenty big and will fit over all of my pants. I ordered the tall. the inseam is supposed to be 31" and the pants are just short of that. I talked to customer support and they happily sent me another pair but they are still just short of 31". It would be nice if zpacks offered longer sizes. I am 5'7" and I don't want to go less than 31" inseam. I know there are people taller than me that would appreciate a taller inseam. I have not worn these in the rain yet but I am very happy of the weight reduction compared to the gortex pants I was using before. Looking forward to more innovative designs on all products from zpacks in the future.
