Created for those who want to pack light and go far no matter the weather, the Visp Rain Jacket boasts wind and rain protection in an ultralight package. Made with a customized 3-layer waterproof/breathable fabric, it’s fully stormproof, yet has an exceptionally breathable feel. Weighing in at 5.4 oz (153g) to start, you’ll barely know it’s in your pack until you need it. You can wear the Visp alone to shed wind and rain, or pair it with a Torrid APEX jacket for a highly effective, ultralight jacket system.

Best Rain Jacket Ever

Love this jacket. Used Frogg Toggs for 15 years, because they were so light and cheap. Finally decided to upgrade to a proper jacket that I would keep for years. I did my research and considered several other brands, but this jacket had the best specifications on paper. After receiving it in the mail, I absolutely love it. Great build quality, and the perfect addition to my ultralight backpacking kit. Thanks!!

VERY Breathable and Ultralight Shell

I did the entire Uinta Highline Trail the first week of Aug, 21 - and I was rained on every afternoon. This shell is so light that I did not notice it in my pack. The fabric is really thin and very breathable - the most breathable shell I have ever owned. Excellent that it is seam taped. I had the opportunity to wear this shell every afternoon for 8 days - and I stayed dry. I did not feel "clammy" and sweaty, I could (almost) feel the air/wind passing through the shell, but yet, I stayed dry when it rained. Superb combo of light / breathable / wearable. I love that the fit is a little large and forgiving. Overall, I love this shell. No frills or extras, and it worked as I hoped. Looks almost the same as before I left for my hike. One caution - the fabric is VERY thin and seems like it would not survive a ton of abuse. With some care and attention, this may be the lightest and close to the best shell I have owned in my 38 years of backpacking...
