Pared-down and packable, the Torrentshell is a no-frills, 2.5-layer hard shell with a waterproof/breathable H2No® barrier for seriously wet weather.
Tropical rainforests share at least one thing with the Patagonia Ice Cap: wet weather. For trekking and hiking in drenching conditions, our Torrentshell Jacket provides 2.5-layer waterproof/breathable protection that's durable, lightweight and simple. The nylon jacket has a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish and stuffs into one of two zippered handwarmer pockets (with a clip-in loop); the hood rolls down, stows away, and has a laminated visor; and the center zipper has exterior and interior storm flaps. With pit zips for added ventilation, a microfleece-lined neck and a drawcord hem.
