The cutting-edge GORE-TEX® SHAKEDRY™ technology creates a permanent beading surface and removes the face fabric of the garment, resulting in an incredibly lightweight and 100% waterproof jacket. The Vapor easily fits in a pocket to provide peace of mind on long runs and exposed ridge traverses.

    my favorite non hunting jacket from sitka. literally weightless, packs down to nothing, fits perfectly, surprisingly durable considering it was not designed to be, and of course completely waterproof. it also breathes unlike any rain. jacket I have owned before, I wear this every chance I get and is always in the center console of my truck. thanks again sitka for another great product!

    This jacket is every bit as good as they say it is. I’m a size L and would need to size up if I wanted to use as a shell over insulation in the winter.

    I bought this piece the second I saw it ! I use this for everything from running the dogs to long scouting hikes. I plan to have this as a boating essential on those warm wet days guiding when regular rain gear is too hot . It packs up so small that I never leave home without it now. The water literally shakes right off of it even after hours in the rain! I wish there was a women’s version but I ordered the Men’s M and am 5’10” . Fits great! It’s fitted enough that I can go for runs in it but has enough room that I can wear a hoody under also. Great everyday piece !
