YAMA Labs - Rain Skirt


High fashion for the trail.

Goal

Create a rain skirt for warmer weather to provide a more breathable alternative to rain pants.

Status

We are exploring a few options and testing them to see which route offers the most promise.

Design Considerations

Some of the variations we're toying around with primarily involve the way the skirt secures and cinches around the waist. We're exploring combinations of velcro, shock cord, zippers and cinches. We're also looking into ways to better secure the bottom of the skirt to improve performance in wind.
