Vapor Stormlight Ultralight Rain Jacket

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.

Keeps me dry and not sweating my a** off
Kept my clothes and self dry while breathing and not turning my upper body into a sticky mess

Super impressed!!!
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
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.

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
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
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
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
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.

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
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.

Great backcountry ski jacket
I have purchased some first lite gear and liked the fit and feel so I wanted the performance of their gear in different sports .Skinning up peaks and skiing powder The vapor stormlight is the best . Great weather blocker. Looks so good you can also wear out on the town

Perfect for the pack
This bad boy is perfect to keep handy in the pack for those unexpected showers but tough enough for all day abuse as well!

Hurricane tested and approved
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!
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.
