The ULA Rain Kilt is a simple, lightweight solution for ventilated weather protection. More specifically, it’s a silicone impregnated nylon skirt that will keep the bulk of the moisture off of your lower body, while providing ease of movement and excellent ventilation. Not only will this kilt keep you nice in dry in a variety of situations but it also doubles as a super handy ‘modesty kilt’ when doing laundry in a resupply town – just remember to cross your legs when sitting down in public!

This rain kilt easily adjusts at the waist (24″ to 54″) by tensioning the flat elastic band. The split center design and Velcro tabs allow for a range of adjustments. Weighing in at only 2.9 – 3.5 oz, it also packs super small (5.25″ H X 4″ W X 2.5 D) into an integrated stuff sack for easy and unobtrusive pack storage when the sun is shining.

Q: WHAT EXACTLY IS THIS?

A: The rain kilt is a simple solution for lightweight, ventilated weather protection. More specifically, it is a silicon impregnated nylon skirt.

Q: WHY IS THE RAIN KILT A BETTER CHOICE THEN RAIN PANTS?

A: We prefer the Rain Kilt to waterproof/ water resistant pants for a number of reasons. Weight is certainly one consideration. As far as we know, there are no pants on the market that only weigh 2.9 – 3.5 oz. Secondly, the rain kilt can be worn in a few different styles to maximize both weather resistance and breathability, so we find it more functional than pants. In addition, we find movement in rainwear to be restrictive. Being a skirt, the Rain Kilt is not restrictive at all. Lastly, the Rain Kilt is MUCH easier to put on/ remove than pants, making it very convenient in temperamental weather.

Q: HOW ADJUSTABLE IS IT?

A: The Rain Kilt easily adjusts at the waist with by tensioning the flat elastic band.

Q: HOW MUCH “BULK” EXISTS AT THE WAISTBAND? WILL IT BE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH A HIPBELT?

A: We prefer to wear our Rain Kilts with the elastic and barrel lock tensioner just above the hipbelt. When worn in that manner, there is no noticeable bulk between your hipbelt and base layer.

    Highly recommended.

    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.

    Excellent!

    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.

    WONDERFUL!!

    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.

    Excellent Kilt (and Stylish in the Outback)

    I just returned from a 12-day, 75 mile excursion to Philmont Scout Ranch with my son and both of us used these kilts extensively. It rained every day except one for a lengthly period of time. These kilts are superior to pants for many reasons, but the biggest advantage is the they are so easy to take on and off. My comrades in the crew experienced greater problems getting their rainpants on/off. These kilts have an added bonus of being very warm, if you are wearing shorts. Excellent value and versatility.

    Suberb lightweight kilt

    I have owned a kilt for a number of years and highly recommend it. Compared to most trousers it is very lightweight and when packed occupies very little space.
    I used it on my 100 mile trek on the French/Spanish Way of St James where it was perfect. For me, its special value is the ease of getting it on and off on those days where there are showers and dry periods. I also find it much cooler than rain pants which trap in your own perspiration making my walking much more pleasant
