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.

    • 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.

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

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.
  • Tumble dry or line dry.

Rain? What rain?

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.

Rain wear

Worked great. Wore the pants over light thermals at night and they kept me nice and warm

Lightweight but sturdy

Used these with Vertice jacket on a rainy trek on the Wonderland Trail. Liked: Light weight but durable, moved easily with me, adjustable waist cord, easy on/off, kept me dry. Improvements: cord for end of pant legs - pants were a bit too long for me, would have liked to tighten cuffs to prevent drag or snagging on tree root or rocks on/off trail.

Fit as expected!

I just tried on my women’s large rain pants, and they fit just as I expected over clothes, nice and lose. Having recently seen ZPacks video of the woman who made the design for these pants, I want to thank her.
