The Vapor SD Jacket is an ultra-packable waterproof jacket for training in unpredictable conditions. Cutting-edge GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ fabric creates a permanent beading surface and removes the face fabric of the garment, resulting in a featherweight, 100% waterproof jacket. The Vapor easily fits in a pocket to provide peace of mind on long runs and exposed ridge traverses.

I wore this jacket nearly every day during a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. My backpack eventually wore a small hole on the upper left of the back of the jacket which I repaired with tent repair tape, but after 2,192 miles of trail one can expect a little wear to occur. This garment was waterproof, light weight, and well designed. I recommend it without hesitation or reservation.

I used this jacket daily for my 2019 Appalachian Trail thru hike. It served me well in every imaginable circumstance from down pours where there was no space between the rain drops to cold breezes on frosty mornings. A constant companion for 2,192 trail miles and two years later I still have it. It does run "slim" which worked well under a loaded backpack, but consider ordering a size up to get the sleeve and body length.

Not durable at all. Wore it less than a week and it already ripped and I don't even know what from.

This is a really cool concept, but the sizing is much more trim than most other pieces...order a size up!

Insane jacket. All the reviews raved about how well the jacket breathes. They weren't lying. I run five miles and wear the SD with two wicking shirts, long and short sleeve (think nike, under armour etc). I've done this three times in 30-50 degree temps. At the end of the run, my layers are basically dry and the SD stays feather light. If you exercise alot or just need a sick rain jacket....the SD's worth every dollar.

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 !
