The lightweight, versatile shell that Ueli Steck wore, including at very high altitudes. The Lot Rain Jacket is the item that every outdoor enthusiast must have in their backpack.

It compresses to be not much larger than a tennis ball. With clean lines, just one front pocket, and a generous fit, it’s able to satisfy everyone. The current version of this jacket is the fruit of the relationship between Ueli Steck and Karpos, in search of the best possible performance. Speed and lightness are two qualities that are part of the shared DNA that led the “Swiss Machine” to encounter the gecko handprint on his journey. The observations he reported to our research and development department have resulted in unique, extremely high-performance garments. Made with a very lightweight fabric, just two and a half layers of 100% nylon, the Lot Rain Jacket can withstand up to a 20,000 mm water column while offering 20,000 g / m2 / 24 hours of breathability. Perfect for trail running, and excellent for mountain biking and also for fast hiking. One of the valuable features of the Lot Rain Jacket is the strap with the button on the chest. An element Ueli Steck wanted in order to be able to better control breathability during his rapid ascents to 8,000 meters. A simple but intuitive solution that allows for ventilation by opening the main zip, and that is extremely convenient and useful for runners and mountain bikers as well.

Whatever the activity or the season, with a weight of only 184 grams, the Lot Rain Jacket is the garment to always have with you when you’re looking for protection and practicality.
