Based on using the eVent membrane we have sourced and aquired a state of the art fabric for LUL. It is extremely durable and is manufactured with lightweight 30 denier rip-stop face fabric, newest ePTFE membrane , and custom 13Denier mesh liner all laminated together. This type of manufacutring makes one superior waterproof breathable fabric. The Rain Shell will have a waterproof rating or HH of 15,000mm and an awesome breathability or MVTR of 30,000g/m2 . This Rain Shell can battle whatever conditions you throw at it , and will exert body heat faster than most products on the market. It is hard to believe such a lightweight product can be so durable. I have been building custom gear for several years and I can say without a doubt this shell is arguably one of the best in its weight class.
Great for winter conditions and harsh weather while still being lightweight.
NOTE: color is more darker olive than tan-ish as showing in the pictures.

This version of Silpoly is the heavier but much more waterproof version. Although the other one worked just fine, I saw the need for people who want lots of pockets or are in climates with really heavy rain. Hand pockets hold up much better with this material. The main difference between this and my other Silpoly rain shell is the extra coating of polyurethane on the inside and the ability to have taped seams.
Often times I've needed rain gear to cover my pack and me while hiking. A poncho does just that but i needed a cooler one and of course lighter. This is it. Made from silpoly fabric. Full featured hood and four d-rings along the bottom side. With the included shock cord and mitten clips, you can keep it from flying all over the place in high winds. A longer piece of shock cord included for use with a pack on. The poncho is oversized and hangs down to your knees to keep the water mostly off your pants. Stuff sack included. Size: 58 x 82
These make a great addition to your rain shell. High strength surged construction. Made from 1.1 oz. silpoly with 1/16th shock cord adjustable cuffs and waist. It weighs 2.6oz (+.5oz for ankle zips) Comes complete with a matching stuff sack.
Note: These pants are best as an around camp pant and not so much for hiking. If you want pants for mostly hiking choose my pertex shield pants or the eVent pants.

Waterproof Rating: 1500, I've used this rating fabric for a long time and has worked great. My Personal favorite as weight to waterproof level.
I personally only recommend a chest pocket Due to the weight of this fabric , hand pockets will tend to wear the garment quicker. As they are used way more. Plus i think just a chest pocket looks better.
These are a 2.5 layer waterproof/breathable mitten designed to go over an insulating layer of fleece or similar gloves to protect you from the elements. The wrist area has a 3/8 Side release buckle with elastic that can be tightened up to fit properly. The gauntlet of the glove can be cinched down to keep the snow out by using an anchored cord lock and shock cord. At a weight of 2 oz. this greatly increases your hand warmth and keeps your pack weight low.
