Sizing & Fit

Our gear has a fairly athletic cut throughout the line, you will notice waists/chests run true to size with a low-drag taper out the arms & legs. We do exhaustive prototyping on each new piece to ensure sizing is consistent and delivers a tailored fit.

* Please check out our Sizing & Fit Guide for more detailed info. Also on each product page there is an in-depth size chart for that item.

No, during the design phase we adjust arm-hole diameters etc. so that the whole system can be layered without bunching or sizing up.

Ex: If your Adapt Merino shirt fits great in Large, then we suggest you order vests/jackets in the same size.

We offer our Trek pant in a 34" Regular , 32.5" Short and 35" Tall inseam. If ordering a short/tall option please allow 24 hours for us to make those alterations here in our shop before shipping them out to you.

* We can also do a 30" custom inseam upon request. Shoot us an email at info@verdictgear.com to let us know & leave a comment in the (comment box) during checkout.

The Atigun pants adjustable waist & soft wicking backer allows you to layer as needed. You can just run briefs or thermal bottoms for maximum agility in moderate temps. While in frigid conditions or during unexpected rain storms they can comfortably be worn on top of our Trek pant. 

* Tip - When layering the Trek pant beneath, roll it's cuff up 4" before securing the Atiguns' snap cuff closure. This prevents moisture form wet grass/snow migrating up the inner pant leg.

We have designed the armholes and chest diameter to layer either beneath, or on top of our jackets. If you are on the move or between glassing points, it is easier to shed when worn as a outer layer. Or if max heat retention is needed, it is easily layered beneath our jackets.

* Don't be afraid to run it as an outer layer. This is why we chose our ClusterLoft insulation, a ripstop shell & durable DWR coating.

Mountain hunting is all about decisions. Should I drop down this ridge after that faint bugle? Should I make a move on that buck now or wait & hope he beds down in a better spot? Is that ram going to hold in that basin overnight or should we make a play on him now as last light approaches?

In the end, you the hunter decides

After years of prototyping and testing, we developed our large scale profile-breaking strategy. Recent research has found that ungulates (deer/elk/sheep etc) simply do not see how we as humans do. As prey, they are primarily looking for shapes/movements that resemble a predator & don't have the visual acuity to pick up small details beyond their immediate surroundings. Our large contrasting panels are designed to break up the human profile into 3-4 unassuming color blocks the size of a sage bush, boulder, or dead-fall at the longer stalking distances we encounter out west. Our large panels resist the blob effect found with most patterns beyond 30/40 yards, so as you close the distance you aren't perceived as a large (athletic looking) predator. In ours & most hunters experience, when you are within that 30 yard mark a miss-timed movement or a wind swirl is what will bust you, even if you're in a full ghillie suit.

Another key is when we dye our fabrics the color is absorbed completely into the fibers, resulting in a dull natural appearance. Patterns on the other hand require printing, a process where color is attached to the face of the material. Often resulting in a shine or UV signature when applied to synthetic fabrics.

After countless hours of testing with our mills, we have developed a natural palette without the use of UV producing hues. You will notice our soft, yellow-leaning grey avoids blue. Not only does this blend in well with stone & dry earth found across the West, but also eliminates the glow some greys give off in low light situations. While our Green color plays well against a wide range of vegetation, from open dry juniper country to thicker evergreen forests. We kept the shade light compared to the darker loden greens commonly used in packs etc. 

Overall we feel like we came up with a killer palate and layout that has been tested hard over the last 2 years from high mountain, damp environments in the Yukon to the dry, arid Owyhee desert here in SW Idaho.

We are a family owned business here in southwest Idaho. It has been a fun/challenging ride bringing Verdict Gear to life and we're excited to offer you guys a lineup of undiluted mountain apparel built to perform in the harshest conditions.
