ZPacks Cuben Fiber Rain Chaps


Weight: 1.9 ounces (54 g)
Size: Loose fit, 32" inseam.


Chaps are lighter and stay cooler than full rain pants, and are meant to be worn with a long jacket or a poncho that covers down past your mid-thighs. Note that normal jackets, including our jackets won't be long enough for full coverage!

Also consider full Rain Pants.

  • Constructed from waterproof 1 oz/sqyd cuben fiber fabric.
  • Loose fit design goes on easily over shoes or boots without the need for ankle zippers.
  • The chaps are held up by carabiners that clip to your belt loops, or into the waistband of your pants if you don't have loops. Two mini carabiners are included.
  • Elastic at the cuffs can be cinched around your ankles, or tucked into your shoe laces to keep the legs from riding up.
  • 1 year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship on all ZPacks gear.
