The Rain Kilt is a simple solution for lightweight, ventilated weather protection. More specifically, it is a silicon impregnated nylon skirt that keeps the bulk of moisture off of your lower body, while providing ease of movement and great ventilation.

The Rain Kilt easily adjusts at the waist (24" to 54") by tensioning the flat elastic band. Sizing: if you are under 5'8 get the med, if over, get the large, which is 2 inches longer. A split center and velcro tabs allow for a range of adjustment. Colors are usually black or blue depending on what sil nylon we have in stock, we can't guarantee color choices. Also handy as a ‘modesty kilt’ when doing laundry in a re-supply town. Fellas…remember to cross your legs.

Packs easily in an integrated stuff sack. (5.25" H X 4" W X 2.5 D)

All Rain Kilts now includes first class shipping and handling.

WONDERFUL!! November 8, 2014
Reviewer: Kale Scown from Sacramento, CA United States  
I just finished my thru hike of the PCT and carried this the entire way. After 2600 miles it became one of my favorite pieces of equipment. It is as well suited for a heavy rain storm as it is for a light drizzle and it really shines during those days in Washington when, even though it isn't currently raining, you are walking through overgrown, soaking wet brush (we call it the "hiker wash"). I never overheated in this like I have in rain pants and it goes on and off in a flash without even having to remove your pack (this is VERY important). Also, even though it is only held together by 3 velcro strips, not once did it come off me in wild wind storms. Many other hikers voiced their jealousy of it and those who I saw using it as well also touted it as a favorite piece of gear.

Too Short!! November 6, 2014
Reviewer: cosmo lee from brooklyn, NY United States  
I'm only 5' 9", and have the large size.  But it is much too short.  My calves, shins and ankles always get wet.  And wet pants legs are a drag.  

The only way to get those parts covered is to pull the waist below my butt, onto my thighs.  That's awkward, and the garment won't stay on - it slips off.

Great idea, poor execution.  :(

Excellent! August 5, 2014
Reviewer: Tormod Antonsen from Nesttun, Hordaland Norway  
This is such a simple and elegant idea.

I walk in the central mountains of Norway like the Hardangervidda platou. Indeed quite wet and windy.
Light windpants, Rain kilt and a light rainjacket is all I need all summer and most of the shoulder seasons as well. Before I got the rain kilt I used garbage bag. This looks better and holds up well.
More people want them. I could easily make this myself and give out but buy here as a kudos to ula for thinking out of the box and putting it out there.

Highly recommended. August 25, 2013
Reviewer: Rod Braithwaite from Victoria, BC Canada  
I hike in the wettest part of North America, the northern coastal shorelines of BC. The rain skirt is really effective in all kinds of rain & wind storms, especially with gaiters. It weights almost nothing and it is also handy as a groundsheet for unpacking gear, etc.
