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

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 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.

4 5

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

Durable waterproof

I moved fresh cut logs in this jacket this winter and guess what... not a single cut in my jacket sleeve, Normally that sort of work in done in my carhartt but from now on Vaporshell. Breathes well and sheds mother natures wrath.

is this any good for layering, ie with a fleece or down sweater?

Responded on

It would be fine, but from my experience it isn't the most breathable, so it could get muggy rather quickly.

Good Gear

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

A simple, light shell that I will keep in my Camelbak for summer mountain rides when the weather might take a turn.

I second comments about the wrist closures, they are worthless. I removed them and glued the seam shut to be rid of them. Fit is boxier than other Stoic gear.

Everyone ordered one!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

To add to my previous review, I still love my jacket, and on Christmas morning when I gave this to my brother in law for his gift, everyone was jealous. Within the next hour my father in law was on the computer ordering a jacket for everyone in the family (6 other jackets!) Be warned, this jacket will incite jealousy.

Responded on

Adding to my previous comment, after I have used it more I have noticed that the velcro cuffs on the sleeves are quite annoying. They don't stick very well at all. I wouldn't call this a deal breaker at this price though, and if they get to annoying you can always cut them off.

Awesome gear

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

I purchased this for my son first and then myself when he told me how "awesome" it was. After 4-5 hours of setting up a large campsite in the pouring rain, my son and I were the only ones dry as a bone. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes to stay dry and not sweat!

Breathable

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

I have run 10 miles in the rain in this jacket and it is as breathable my eVent jacket. Sheds water well too. The wrist velcro is a joke.
