A note from Luke

Hey Guys!   

We're up and rocking!!

I'm doing my best to get previous customers taken care of and limiting incoming orders.

I can't even express in words how great, and loyal this community is.

We started a little slow getting things running, but we're now shipping about every other day.

Thanks for your support and we will keep you updated with the latest updates.


    • LUL Vapor 30 Rain Shell (eVent)


      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.

    • Silpoly 4K Rain Shell


         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.


      Made from a 1.1oz polyester ,  with a silicone coating on 1 side and polyurethane coating on the other.

      Hood face cinch and stiffened brim

      elastic cuffs

    • Silpoly Backpacking poncho


      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

      Weight: 2.6oz

    • Silpoly Ultralight Rain Shell


      Weighing in at only 3.8oz (without pit zips) +.3 with, this is an extremely light and durable waterproof rain jacket. It is made from a .9oz xenon sil.  The hood has 2 adjustments , face cinch and brim back and forward. Lightweight elastic cuffs and 1- handed anchored cord lock waist adjustment. The jacket uses a custom made #3 waterproof zipper from YKK. It comes complete with a stuff sack.  Size small available  *New reinforced hood brim*
      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.
      Shown color is Dark olive green, all colors are darker verions charcoal grey etc...
      Pictured guy, Luke!  is 5.11" Tall, 157lbs with a 32" waist . Wearing a size medium for size reference. I can still get a insulating layer underneath.
