Vapor Stormlight Ultralight Rain Jacket
2.5-Layer Waterproof Construction

Any backcountry hunter will tell you that carrying a solid rain jacket is a necessary evil but nobody enjoys the added weight of your average rain jacket. We designed the Vapor Stormlight Rain Jacket as a no frills, bomber ultralight rain jacket that can keep you dry when you need it while also packing into its own pocket when not in use. At a featherweight 12 ounces, this hooded two layer rain jacket is the best of both worlds. Like it's big brother, the SEAK Stormtight Jacket, the Vapor features the Turret Hood and waterproof zippers.

Great coat!! 9/10/2018

I just got back from a 6 day archer Elk hunt in CO. Several times I had to quickly throw these on due to the quick changing weather in the mountains - easy to get on over boots!!! These worked out perfect!!

Finally got to bust this out on a scouting trip. 9/1/2018

Got a light rain while out checking cameras and glassing for whitetail, threw this on and was able to avoid getting soaked. Folds up really well and should do me fine this season up in the tree. Another awesome product from FL

Lightweight and nice fitting 8/31/2018

I have yet to take these out into anything seriously wet, but I can say that the jacket fits well, with plenty of room underneath for more layers which makes it a great shell for rainy day sits. Getting some serious rain this weekend, so planning on running it through its paces.

Nice Lightweight Jacket 8/30/2018

I live in the Pacific Northwest and definitley get to test rain gear. This jacket is suprisingly waterproof for how thin/lightweight it is. Great range of motion due the nice athletic cut. Great packability. Wouldn't mind the torso area to be a few inches longer because it tends to ride up my back with my pack on.


How it fits
I would prefer it to be a couple inches longer in the torso, but this is pretty typical for me because I have a longer mid section and shorter legs then the average person.. The sleeves and shoulder width are perfect.

Well Built Piece of Clothing 8/30/2018

I was in need of a new Rain Jacket so I ended up picking up the Vapor Stormlight and it did not disappoint. Lightweight, overbuilt, and kept me bone dry while making my way through the Scottish Highlands.


How it fits
I am a big guy with broad shoulders and this has plenty of room for them. The XL is a bit more baggy than I would like but the Large was just too snug. Plus if I'm layering, I have the extra room.

Love this jacket all around. Can stuff into any crevice of your pack with ease. Great for year round backpacking use.

Fit is really good in general and works well with layers. Only issue I have are the cuffs on sleeves. Tight, I mean insanely tight. Wish they were a little easier for watch and release, but otherwise real nice Clark, real nice.

Light and effective 8/30/2018

Light, very packable, sealed well, thin. this jacket is only a shell and breaks the wind well.
I haven't gotten a chance to use it in the rain yet but I have no doubts that it will perform well.
it is super lightweight and I would not take it in thick sharp brush or anything that could puncture it easily. it def seems like it would rip or puncture easily if around sharp objects, on the other hand though you should ony really need this is its wet for short periods.
does not have any insulation and seems to be pretty quiet. probably quiet enough for spot and stalk.


How it fits
Runs smaller in the medium size than most of the other garmets, especially being a piece that you put on over other layers.

“Have yoooou ever seeeen the rain?” 8/29/2018

CCR. Any respectable American should know Creedence. Their hit song, “Have you ever seen the rain” charted 8th for a year on Billboard top 100 songs in 1971. Well who cares about that if your wet? No one. No one cares. So have some respect, and stay dry like me when I’m wearing this jacket. Hell, if you really respect yourself, you would buy the rain pantstoo, and every CCR album they put out.

Great rain jacket 8/29/2018

Actually breathes! Pricey but worth it because so far that I've used it, it does not get clammy inside. I would prefer pit zips, that would add weight obviously, but I think would make the product perfect. I feel the large size runs a tad small to layer over their other L size tops, so wish I coulda exchanged for a XL but it was clearance, might end up buying an XL anyways.

Light, breathable workhorse 8/29/2018

I've tried a lot of rain jackets over the years, and a common finding is that while they protect you from moisture on the outside, the lack of breathability causes moisture on the inside in all but the narrowest temperature ranges. No so with this jacket - I've found this to be one of the most breathable jackets I've used and so far have not seen that come at the cost of lost rain protection. After 3 months of pretty heavy use, I'm quite happy.

Amazing Jacket 8/29/2018

I love to hike rain or shine and this was the perfect jacket for me. I live in the Texas Hill Country on a small track of brushy land. I hike through dense cedar patches and brier patches and this jacket takes it like a champ. After 6 months of frequent use this jacket still keeps me bone dry and when paired with the boundary stormtight pant its the ultimate rain system.


How it fits
When they say the their gear is designed to fit over the layer below them, they are not lying. I purchased the medium stormlight jacket to go with my medium Arowool, Chama and Halsted and the jacket is the perfect size to be able to go over all three layers without feeling like i was constricted in anyway.

The unraingear 8/29/2018

I keep forgetting this is in my pack, but its there when I need it. Its so comfortable its easy to forget you are wearing rain gear. It also breaths extremely well, I can sweat up even the most reportedly breathable rain I have tried and this first lite piece really held its own.
I’m going to buy a second one just to keep in my dedicated day pack.

Awesome ultralight rain jacket 8/29/2018

The Vapor is an awesome ultralight rain jacket. It's packs up small and isn't too warm during hot weather. High pockets are great because they don't interfere with the hip belt of my pack. This jacket is a great pick for Backcountry hunts or just tooling around town.

Packable Rain jacket 8/29/2018

I bought this specifically to put in my pack just in case I'm caught in a storm, I've used it once in a nice rain and it kept my dry, its very light weight and compressible. I am slight afraid to walk though brush with it because it seems paper thin. Otherwise its a great jacket to breakout when the rain clouds move in and wait out a storm


How it fits
I bought a large beucase it says no need to size up and the large fit tight with just a shirt on so I knew I wouldn't fit any other layers under it. I exchanged for an XL which feels a little to big but it should be good with layers.

Stylish, bombproof jacket great for the high country and the rainforest 8/28/2018

I got this jacket to use this year for hunting mule deer in central Washington and elk in the rainforests of Western Washington. I needed lightweight and breathable as much as I needed water/bomb proof. The season hasn’t opened yet so I have yet to truly test the jacket but, I have always been an excellent judge of character and predict this jacket to be a new dependable friend during hunting season. It also has a rugged handsomeness to it which allows me to wear around town as well. So far, I am super satisfied with my purchase and look forward to putting the jacket through its paces this fall/winter.

best rain gear I have ever owned 8/28/2018

This jacket is the best light weight water proof jacket I have ever owned. I take it with me every time I hunt, fish, hike, and just about anywhere I go.

If you want to stay dry without sacrificing space, or weight. this is the jacket for you.

I have owned and tested several competitor brands and this one came ahead with breathability, water proofness, and weight.



How it fits
Fits great. I can wear it just with a base layer. But have also worn it over my aerowool base, halstead, and the uncompaghre puffy.

I’ve used this jacket to break the wind on the mountains of Montana during early elk season. I’ve also used it on rainy day firearms ranges in New England and canoeing remote ponds in Northern Maone. It is a great balance of weight and durability and sheds water well. As a traditional archer the shooters fit is great for hunting with my longbow.

Great product 8/20/2018

I ordered the jacket and matching pants for sheep hunting in northern B.C. It stands up to the tough buck brush and thick willow. With gaiters I was able to cross creeks without soaking through to my boots. It dried very fast once the rain let up and didn’t trap moisture in when layered with merino wool base. Very packable, light weight and great range of motion.

Go Further. Stay DRY 8/20/2018

Quick and Easy: Light Weight, Comfortable, Dry. Hunting clothes aside, I have never worn a rain jacket shell that was this light weight. The fit is perfect, not big and bulky. Slim, fits well to your body so you have full range of motion and keep hunting, working, etc. Dry, I've spent hours in drizzle rain to hard rain and this thing didn't let a drop through. If you're wearing a pair of Stormtight Pants, you will stay just as dry if you were sitting in your tent. I will say though, this jacket is noisy. If I was going in on a stock or sitting in a tree stand I would not recommend wearing it.

Perfect Lightweight Rain Jacket 8/15/2018

The fit is spot on for me. I love the longer neck cut, which allows me to zip up over my beard and zips right up to my chin. The hood cinch is perfect for bringing the material in tight, which allows you to keep full peripheral view. Fits in a cargo pocket of pants/shorts or takes up little space in your pack. Very light in weight, so can't even tell it's with me. A must have for the backpacker/hunter who is looking to cut ounces from their gear pack.

Bone Dry in Southeast Alaska 8/9/2018

Not just a rain jacket. 7/30/2018

I’ve used this jacket for an outer layer when roaming the hills looking for sheds, cutting the wind on early morning boat-rides, and it’s intended use. It’s honestly weightless, with it being so light you sacrifice durability. While I have no doubt that it won’t do its job, it’s not gonna hold up against getting caught crossing barbwire or busting through a briar patch. It’s still a fantastic lightweight rain jacket.

Exactly What it Claims to be 7/28/2018

A true packable rain coat, it folds down to about the size of a decent sized yellow perch - perfect to toss into any bag, easy to carry in your hand on that overcast, "calm before the storm" walk. Its thin material makes it great for warmer weather and shavesany extra weight from your back.

The thin material does a great job at keeping out all forms of rain (and snow) and cuts wind nicely. However, on the note of the thin material, be weary near thorns and barbs, and if small tears are not sealed right away (as in my case) I don't think it would take much to expand the hole. As expected, this light of a material doesn't hold up as well to "rough" wear and jagged natural features as heavier rip-stop styled materials - but that's not really its purpose is it?

As a coat built to serve as an emergency plan it does a great job, as well as in day to day life. I wear mine daily when temperatures are cool and toss it in my work bag when there is rain in the forecast. I've worn it while taking wildlife photographs, fishing, hunting and shooting - not once have I felt restricted or uncomfortable.

Plus it just looks good; and any product that looks good, works well, and fits nicely is worth it in my books.


How it fits
Sizing wise, it great. Enough room that you can slide winter-esque base layers underneath but still snug enough that you don't look like that child whose parents expect them to "grow into it."

Rainy day wear around campus or in your pack for those popup storms. 7/15/2018

Great product that is lightweight and breathable. I initially bought this for rainy days on campus and to have as part of my hunting kit. Recently, the weather was calling for heavy rain all day and since we just put in a pool I decided wear this item and clean the pool. After 45 minutes of cleaning the pool in a heavy down pour, I was still dry, the product showed no signs of wetting through despite the warm air temperatures and relative humidity. Im not certain if I would want to rely on this for heavy rains on multiple days but definitely a solid option if the forecast is predicting low percentage periodic storms.

Size L is great for my frame with enough room for a couple layers. Product offers freedom of movement and full range of motion.

Best packable rain gear 7/12/2018

I use this all the time for backpack hunting. No matter what its always in my pack. Not the most durable rain jacket but thats not what it was designed for.

A little on the loud side but other than that I cant ask for any better. Thanks FL!

Great lightweight rain jacket! 7/5/2018

This jacket weighs about nothing and is a perfect outer layer for those rainy days. Used it to go fly fishing during a rain storm and I came out of the creek bone dry. If you're looking for an extremely lightweight rain jacket this is it! But keep in mind it is not meant to be durable. I did find a slight tear in the back that was easily fixed.

Very Dry 5/9/2018

Second time I've been dumped on in this jacket and both times I've stayed bone dry. Have not had it out in the woods yet but so far so good.

Exactly what I needed in a packable jacket that keeps water OUT 4/10/2018

It's one thing to buy a cheap lightweight packable jacket - but they typically don't stand up to the wear and tear and end up going from waterproof to water resistant and eventually a sponge. In the military I move a lot between climates and I bought this for Okinawa - it is perfect to wear (I bought black) anywhere around Virginia where I'm at now, the island where I'll go this summer and my fall hunts in CO. It works as advertised - great athletic fit and water tight. If I need warmth, I add plenty of tight fitting base layers. And the price point is better than Sitka!

Great ultralite base layer 3/9/2018

When I received this jacket in the mail i was slightly disappointed in what I got because I was expecting some sort of liner. After re-reading the description from FL they nailed it, its simply a cover to keep the hunter dry and it does it VERY well while taking up a negligible amount of space in your pack and VERY few ounces.

light, pack-able and keep you dry 3/1/2018

I have no issues with this jacket, it has performed perfect in windy and wet conditions and breathes very well with my layering system. I actually just keep it in my truck at all times. Its great for any and all outdoor actives.

I'M VERY GLAD I purchased this product. 2/10/2018

I like the light weight comfort of this jacket. It has performed well in the wet weather of Eastern North Carolina and will get much more use in the future.

With me on every hunt 2/7/2018

I now carry the Vapor jacket on every single hunt in my day pack. This thing is super light, and definitely rain proof. Was rained on several times with it and it held up perfectly. Please make Vapor PANTS!!!!

Great function and fit 1/21/2018

I generally do not bring a rain jacket during archery but will find cover under tree branches instead. I hunted a different area this year and the Stormlight worked perfect. Amazing fit over layers of clothing and had ordered the same size as the Llano. The hood in a little oversized and worked perfect so I did not get rain drops coming in off the sides. Very lightweight which makes the decision easy when choosing gear for a lightweight trip. Fixture in my gear list now!

Vaper Jacket 1/9/2018

for its intended purpose, this is a great coat. Leave it in your pack the entire season. But for weather greater than a drizzle it can become saturated easily and tends to stop breathing. Had I known this i would have stepped up to the thicker jacket. I will continue to use as a all around rain coat.

I used mine twice and the sleeve ripped. 12/8/2017

This jacket did not work out for me. I used mine twice before the sleeve ripped. Its very light and fits well, however, I cannot recommend it for hard use as it did not last very long for me. It might do ok as an emergency rain jacket but not much else.

ideal for back packing 12/6/2017

Worked great in a 4 hr rain while processing an elk. Kept me totally dry and packs super small/light.

Nice packable jacket 11/29/2017

I got this in black so I could wear it in and out of field. I'm 5'11 190lb and I got a M

The sleeves are perfect. Coulda maybe went large but I'm in between sizes. I can comfortably wear a Kuiu Kenai under this and also my M sanctuary jacket fits under this and isn't busting the seams. The sanctuary doesn't fit perfect obviously but if you had to you could.

Dry as ever 11/22/2017

Wore the Vapor Starlight Ultralight Rain Jacket this weened on the western slope of the cascade mountains here in Oregon for the late archery hunt. I am very impressed with the performance of this jacket. I was completely dry and was able to move freely without having too much noise. So glad that I made this purchase!! I would highly recommend it to everyone going to be in the rain.

Excellent waterproof jacket 11/15/2017

By far the best rainjacket I've ever owned. Extremely waterproof yet packs down nice when it isn't needed. A blackberry vine caught my shoulder the other day (same day I killed my elk) in torrential rain and wind. I could see from the outside that there were some very small holes after I pulled the thorns out, but was pleasantly surprised to find my shoulder stayed dry. I later looked at the inside of the coat and realized the thorns were stopped by the coats thin inner layer. This coat is very tough considering its a lightweight jacket. The cuffs are a bit tight but they are adjustable and it keeps the rain out when glassing. The hood is very comfortable and has a cool drawstring on the top that allows you to cinch it to your head if it's windy. Very satisfied but glad I didn't have to spend 275 bucks on it. I got it in black on sale.

No rain but great in the wind. 11/14/2017

Windy Colorado Hunt and this jacket kept me out of it. Like all FL products with hoods, next level protection. Why can’t the army issue me items like these.

Great jacket 10/15/2017

Great jacket to add to anyone's kit. It is pack able and tucks into its own pocket, packs down into a decent size. I like how lightweight and quiet it is for a good rain jacket.

I wish it had a zipper pull on the inside of the pocket that it packs into.

Thin exterior membrane material. Ripped 3rd use out on branch. Pretty disappointing 10/13/2017

Purchased Dry Earth for use in both pack hunting and to town/work. Sharp jacket and certainly is dry.

Do not buy if doing any sort of off trail hiking or hunting. The exterior fabric is so thin that my jacket chest ripped open while deer scouting getting snagged on a branch and pulled it right open.
I sent back to FL but was told any rip, pulls or tears are not covered by the first 12 month warranty. Any other jacket I've had would have deflected a branch, thorn, etc. I was told to put a large patch on it and use, but not the look I'm going for in my town/work jacket. Asked if they'd have material to match Dry Earth to help, given a "sorry can't help ya" response. Got returned ripped jacket back today.

So unimpressed with the product and level of customer support from FL on this jacket after years of wearing a few Kanabs, a jacket and serious socks I wont leave behind by Fl.

Look at the Woodbury or SEAK if of any better quality.

Not durable 10/11/2017

Was impressed with this jacket at first, but after only a few uses the inside liner began to tear away, as well as the neck felt. I've owned about three different Patagonia light weight rain jackets and the same thing has happened to them, however they all lasted twice as long, and cost $200 dollars less. Not impressed with this product, and definitely not worth the money due to its lack of durability.

A must have for any backcountry hunter 10/9/2017

I recently went on a hunt and few of us had this jacket and we were glad we did. The others did not and I expect them to have one next year. The jacket is ultra light but provides all the protection you need. My favorite part is that if the rain is off and on throughout the day you can keep it on because it breaths so well. This jacket can also just be worn as an additional layer for those cold days without having to carry another jacket in the pack. Highly recommend.

Made the difference 10/6/2017

I bought this recently for a mid-September elk hunt in Montana. Wanted to have something I could throw in my pack and forget about until I needed it. The trip was planned for 8 days in the field and the 10-day forecast was clear and warm for the duration; the forecast was wrong. After a few 80+ degree days, we were hit with an afternoon shower that lasted about an hour. I wore the Stormlight as my hunting partners and I still-hunted across the mountain into a herd of elk. We ended up taking a 5x5 satellite bull and a cow out of that group that evening and I was as comfortable as I've ever been in a rain storm while walking. The real test came the next day. One of my partners walked out to the truck to drive it around to the other side of the mountain range to make for a shorter pack out. He learned that 10" of snow was forecasted at our elevation (we were hunting between 8,000' and 10,000') starting late that night. The road system is poor in there, so there was concern we might get stuck if we didn't get out. It started raining mid-day and the temperature started to drop. At about 10:00 p.m. we were back at the truck with one load still left to pack out. The three of us were exhausted, wet, and cold. We'd been packing without rain gear on because we figured the exertion would be enough to stay warm and figured we'd be sweating no matter what we were wearing. By then, the temps were in the high 30's with moderate to heavy rain and I was a bit concerned about making the last trip in with the deteriorating conditions. My partners and I threw a dry shirt on with our Stormlight rain jackets, and our physical and mental states changed completely. We were able to comfortably (well, at least as comfortably as you can make it with two elk hind quarters on your back) complete the last trip. We made it back to the truck at around 3:00 a.m. as ice was forming and snow was starting to fall. We fought our way out that night on the slimy road and ultimately made it back to civilization. I am truly convinced that if I wouldn't have had quality rain gear that night, we wouldn't have been able to make that last trip and would have had to stay until mother nature gave us permission to leave. I was carrying a total of 115 lbs on that last load, and there are no signs of wear on the jacket. If there is better rain gear out there, I don't know how. The Vapor Stormlight has it all in my opinion. It's light, durable, breaths well, and keeps the water off you in the worst conditions. I just ordered another in a different color.

Super impressed!!! 9/11/2017

Bought this for an Alaskan moose hunt that I expected large amounts of rain but it ended up being cool in the mornings and hot during the day but used it as a wind breaker in the mornings on the boat ride to go hunt. I love this jacket and plan to buy more, it packs down well, my only suggestion would be a double sided zipper so when I stuff the jacket into one of the jackets pocket, it doesn't feel as though I am going to break the zipper while trying to back it down while being inside out

Amazingly light 9/5/2017

Best packable rain jacket I've tried. Comfortable enough to wear all day. Doesn't bind up while drawing my bow. Very happy with this purchase.

Awesome! 8/13/2017

This jacket so pack-able that I will not leave my house without it. It's an amazing how light weight it is, and yet so breathable and keeps you dry as a bone. I was fishing when a storm blew in, and I just happened to throw my Vapor in the boat. I'm glad I did! I would recommend this jacket to anybody!

Awesome Jacket 8/3/2017

I've owned several high end rain jackets over the years and this one out preforms them all. It actually breaths so you don't feel like you're in a sauna. Not something that would hold up very well busting brush...but it's not really designed for that anyways. Perfect for the pack though. Only draw back I've found is I like it so much I feel like I need to get a second one in a solid color for wearing around town! For reference I'm 6' 180lbs and the L fit me well with room for some layering if needed.

Great Jacket 8/3/2017

I keep one of these along with the boundary pants rolled up in a large Kifaru pullout in my pack wherever I go. I recently used this jacket salmon fishing in Sitka in light rain and out on the boat and it worked great. I would not use this for brush busting as I believe the SEAK is best for that. But it worked great on light trails in and around Sitka with a pack on.

Great jacket for its purpose 5/17/2017

The Ultralight rain jacket is just that. I really like the minimalist design, it is light and very pack-able. This jacket would not be used for warmth, but pairing it with a puffy makes for a comfortable day in the rain. The jacket cuts the wind very nicely. I would recommend wearing a long sleeve t shirt under the jacket if you intend to cut the wind. Since the jacket is very thin, it does get cool to the touch in the wind. The hood is user friendly and works great. The hood stays put, even when the rain is coming down sideways. I would recommend this product to those looking for a pack able jacket to keep you dry when you want to be active. If you want a "warm" rain jacket, then the SEAK stormtight would be the better option.

Bomber Jacket 4/9/2017

I used the Vaporlight Jacket during rain, snow and a wide range of temperatures while on all day/night training sessions. Paired with the Wilkin top, it proved to be a great combo during moderate intensity outings. It managed moisture well, never getting really "clammy" like many rain jackets do. I stayed warm and dry(inside and out), allowing me to keep training no matter what the conditions were.

Waterproof AND BREATHABLE! 3/17/2017

I've gone through my fair share of backpacking rain jackets from both hunting companies and the big backpacking brands. The thing I always seem to find is that companies are good at making jackets that repel water from the outside but are not good at letting moisture out when you're active. So, the rain doesn't get me wet but I'm soaked because the jacket doesn't breathe when I'm hiking. This jacket isn't a thick and burly rain coat, it is a lightweight rain shell and it has kept me dry period. It breathes better than any other "rain jacket" I've owned and since I'm usually hiking when I wear it, that's what I need.

Best in it's class 3/16/2017

This is the perfect rainproof packable jacket. It weighs next to nothing, is extremely packable, breathable, and fully waterproof. It basically does't leave my day pack unless there's 0% chance of rain.

Hurricane tested and approved 10/7/2016

So I got the Vapor Stormlight Ultralight Rain Jacket a few months back and have been waiting for the opportunity to put it through it's paces. Along comes Hurricane Matthew... I was out in this great weather for several hours (on duty) facing band after band of wind and rain in warmer temps. I never got wet (because the seams are so good) and I never got hot and sweaty. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! Another awesome product from First Lite! Buy it....

Light and effective! 9/26/2016

I was so stoked when FL announced they were going to make an ultra lightweight rain jacket. Once I got it in my hands, I wasn't disappointed in the least bit. I've put this thing through torrential downpours and hail storms. Not a drop got through. This also adds as a great windbreaker as well. It keeps me dry and my pack light. 100% a winner.
