Description

Stands up to nightmarish weather in a way that'll make your full-zip rain shells nervous.

Designed with a clean, anorak-style cut and waterproof breathable fabric, the Men's Vaporshell 3L Anorak eschews bells and whistles in order to offer you simple, effective protection against the elements. Torrential downpours, horrid winds, and turn-back-now conditions don't scare this Stoic jacket. This jacket was made to keep you comfortable while you backpack, hike, and move through the nastiest weather. All that and the Vaporshell Anorak packs down small enough to easily slip into your daypack without requiring you to leave anything behind in trade. Not too shabby, right?

  • Vaporshell fabric uses a proprietary waterproof breathable urethane membrane that keeps you dry in wet weather
  • Vaporshell fabric has a shockingly high air permeability that allows air to move through the fabric so you fell cool, not hot and stifled
  • Fully taped seams further improve weatherproofing
  • 3-D Ergonomic fit moves with you while you run, hike, or lug a pack over long trails
  • Side zip offers superior venting when needed and makes it easier to pull this anorak-style jacket on and off
  • Tabs at the cuffs and dual drawcords at the front of the hood give this jacket plenty of adjustability
  • Extremely compressible—plays nice with other gear in your pack
  • Drawcord hem

Works Good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this item for work and play. I work in corn fields and they can get really wet in the mornings and humid and muggy later in the morning. The jacket works really good at keeping the water out and is pretty breathable. It is a little cardboardy and stiff at first and not as packable as i would like. It could also be about an inch longer in the torso. They should have just put regular Velcro on the arms because the straps are very interesting. I really like how it pulls over and has a zipper on the side. I wish it had a pocket on the side along with the kangaroo pocket. Overall this jacket is pretty good and was worth the price I paid for it.

It works. Fits tall and thin build well

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

This is my day to day jacket...sparing my technical jacket from daily abuse. The runs-small fit works well for me. 148lbs 6'3" wearing size large. Sleeves are long enough and the gut isn't giant like many other (rei) brands.

Bad ass

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is a perfect light shell, very breathable. You barely know it's there.

The only downside I have is that it could have more pockets, just has the one front zip. No big deal though, I usually wear pants.

You may want to upgrade from "usually" to "always." :)

It's worth twice what I paid for it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I usually wear a large, but opted for an XL because I bought it primarily to use as a shell. I'm 6'2", 195lbs. and I think it fits perfectly. I have room underneath for other layers, but it doesn't hang off of me if I wear it by itself. It doesn't let any water in, but stays completely breathable as long as you're moving around. I would recommend it, or buy as a gift for a friend or loved one. As far as the velcro straps around the wrists go, I think they just need to be trimmed a little shorter, no big deal. :)

pleasantly surprised

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

had this for a few months now. worn it in spring snow it performed admirably wore it in rain, sleet. it was perfect.
i use it to ride to work most days ealry spring , its aboslutely perfect.
rain is just whisked away form it.

fabiric i find is a bit uncomfortable its very "carbordy" not that pleasant to wear, but not that bothered by it after its worn in a bit. the velcro on cuffs isnt perfect but its fine to me. i, sizing t runs small short and tigher than it could be. not a fan of the fit , but its a throw in anywhere jacket, i didnt epxect much and i got a jacket that bats much higher than i imagined.
and for the price, seriosuly its well worth it good litle jacket

Price makes up for the little faults

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

In my opinion, it runs a little small. I'm 6'0" and about 170 lbs, and I thought the large was a little short on the front. It does sit nicely in the back though. I generally love Anoraks and this one didn't change my opinion. Would have loved hand pockets instead of the pouch in the front, but again not a huge deal. As other reviews have mentioned, the velcro wrist straps suck. Pretty easy fix with some store bought velcro pads.

The upside is that this coat cost me $30, is very water resistant, breathable, and lightweight. Used it on multiple hikes and tours and have not gotten wet from rain or sweat. If you are a student like me and need a good spring jacket on the cheap, this is probably your best bet!

Stoic vaporshell anorak

good material, waterproof and breathable. Bad wrist velcro, hood not much ergonomic, nice side opening help a lot put o/off. Bad wr finish, not durable.
Great price. Overall 3 star but for the price 4

Great bargain at $48

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

6'0" 155 bought the medium as a light (just in case shell) for climbing. Bump on the comments regarding the wrist velcro, I plan to fix immediately.
+'s: Fabric initially impresses me breathable, durable, water resistance. Lack of pit zips (I prefer the jacket be packable, and pit zips are usually a pain anyway). Breathable! probably no need for pit zips anyway. Price. Cut, fit, and finish.
-'s The zippers and elastic cords are unnervingly small, and the zippers aren't YKK . No stuff pocket to pack this thing away . The wrist "velcros" are total fail.

Returned Immediatly

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I bought this jacket hoping for a light weight shell, but I immediately returned it when I found out the chest zip pocket was rather small and there was no pitzips, there is an awkward zipper that starts on the bottom of the right side and goes up 2/3 of the way. I have never seen something like that. The fit was small even though I am a pretty skinny guy (normally mediums run a little large for me in turns of fit to my body, but this coat made me feel cramped). Velcro ends were awful, and I never tested this product in the rain. I think you could find a better rain jacket for $50 somewhere else on clearance.

LOVED then liked

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Well i loved this jacket at first because it fit great, packed nice, is well made and looks good. Fit all sorts of occasions. But then i took it into the rain and did not have fun with this jacket (seems contrary to other reviews, but I'm just sharing my experience!). I got pummeled in the Ozarks on a fly fishing trip and while camping at a music festival and both times it did not hold up quickly becoming heavy and soaked. Maybe light rain it works well, but i expected more out of this one. Maybe the Ozarks are too tough for it. Still, I like it for wind breaking and light rain! If I'm hiking or fishing I need to be guaranteed bone dry! Guess i need another jacket.

Fit- it is a pretty snug fit around but the side zipper helps. I'd size up if you are going to layer underneath.

$3.00 cuff fix.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought an industrial adhesive backed velcro kit. Carefully trimmed off a couple inches of the "hook" alternative dots with a razor and cleaned with alcohol. Cut hook to fit and it works great.

How should I go about cleaning mine I just...

How should I go about cleaning mine I just got mine two days ago and got a little oil on it. Would greatly appreciate a suggestion

Best Answer Responded on

I can't speak to this jacket specifically, but when oil is involved my go-to answer is dish soap. Something like Dawn dish soap is effective on grease but still really gentle (no joke: it's what they use on sea birds that have been caught in oil spills).

So... I'd probably rub some dawn on it, rinse, and repeat. You may find you need to reapply DWR at some point.

One last note: in a desperate act, I once used Shout on my Arc' Atom SV jacket (after a thanksgiving turkey frying oil incident) and there have been no ill effects... Still, I shoulda used Dawn.

Tiny!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

So, so small! I'm 5'3" and typically wear small shirts and jackets with a little room to spare, but this jacket in small was so tiny that I couldn't even move my arms forward or come close to zipping it. I felt like Chris Farley

How much do you weigh Nate? I just ordered a medium and but am still concerned.

Best rain jacket I have owned

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

This jacket has an amazing waterproof rating of 28k which means it will keep you dry in very heavy rain, wet snow, and high pressure. The breathability is even better at 48k. This jacket is great for hiking, climbing, touring, etc. I am 5'9 and 143 and I am usually a small in jackets and I got a small in this. I kind of wish I got a M so I had a little room. the chest is a little tight but everything else is perfect. It is great for spring and fall hiking tho with the way it fits now

Good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this with the Vaporshell pants to make my winter bike rides weatherproof. This jacket has held up in light rain and snow and the breathability is nice. My only complaint is the "velcro" cuffs. They are pretty flimsy and definitely not Velcro brand.

Decent lightweight jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

Have only had it out in one real down pour (about five hours nonstop) and it kept me dry. The fit is a bit snug for it's size but works good if you don't need to layer too much. Unzipping the side is a must for taking on/off. Rubber velcro is a nice try but fail. For the price I paid on S&C, it seems to be well worth it. I myself wouldn't pay the outlet price.

Great all around jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Yesterday I went mountain biking at Snowbasin in a downpour. It made for an awesome ride and I was glad I had this jacket.
The hood fit over my helmet just fine, while the kangaroo pocket kept my iPhone perfectly dry the entire ride. The kangaroo pocket is easy to use even with bike gloves on and is a convenient place to store snacks, trail maps, or your phone.
The trails were pretty muddy and the Vaporshell 3L Anorak repelled both water and mud to keep me dry.
My only complaint about the jacket is the velcro straps on the wrists. They don't stick well at all and only function to annoy you and get in the way. I love the jacket though, and after cutting the velcro straps off with a pair of scissors, this jacket is much more functional and much less annoying.
I have used this in a light rain as well as in heavy rain and it has performed superbly!
I am 6'3" 190lbs and I wear a size Large. It fits me perfectly, not too tight, but an athletic fit perfect for outdoor activities!

great jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I use this mainly as a rain jacket in the summers in SLC, UT. It is breathable and keeps me dry in the rain, that is WHEN it rains in this desert of a valley! Also, a great jacket for skiing. Love the pouch in front and the side zipper to make it easier to pull on and off and allow for some ventilation when I'm hot.

Simple and great value.

Mainly use it for ski touring.
I'm a firm believer in the whole "less is more" philosophy when it comes to gear and this jacket fits into that category very neatly.
-Quite breathable for being a shell.
-Comfortable fit (getting it on and off is easy in my opinion- despite what other reviews say) and large hood. .
-The DWR has so far held up fine, although I haven't used it in any torrential downpours.
-Lightweight for when its just sitting in your pack.
-And best of all- the price, I've never come across such a decent jacket so cheap

Pretty Nice

I wear this jacket literally everyday. I live in Oregon so it also rains all the time. My main uses for it are biking to school and hiking, but I wear it casually as well. The DWR isn't that great but you still stay dry and the jacket dries quickly. There are some wrist straps that are pretty pointless, so I cut those off and just below my chest zipper the glue seems to be coming loose, but that's an easy fix. It's more breathable than most rain jackets even without the pit zips. I got mine on super clearance so it was well worth the cost.

Pretty Nice
