The Torrentshell 3L Jacket is an update on Patagonia’s hugely popular, functional, lightweight Torrentshell jacket.
It still looks like the jacket we know and love, but in terms of its construction, everything has gone up a notch. The 3-layer H2No Performance Standard shell is comprised of the following:
3.3-oz 50-denier ECONYL® 100% recycled nylon ripstop face
Polycarbonate PU membrane with 13% bio-based content
DWR (durable water repellent) finish
The result? A durable, waterproof, windproof jacket that’s also breathable and lightweight (just 394g) – providing all-day comfort regardless of your activity, whether it’s a spring/summer hike or the daily commute to and from work.
The fabric is bluesign-approved and Fair Trade Certified sewn.
In terms of the other technical details…
The cuffs feature adjustable velcro straps, while the hem and hood are adjustable via the elasticated drawcord system, giving you a personal fit and sealing out the elements.
The jacket fastens via a snag-free centre zipper, which is also covered with a storm flap for extra weather protection, and the neck is lined with microfleece for a little added comfort. Then you’ve got two zippered hand-warming pockets, giving you some secure carry space, and zipped armpit vents for ventilation (which come in very handy, especially during more active pursuits).
Last but not least, you can pack the jacket away quickly and easily when you don’t need it, thanks to the self-stuffing option, complete with a carabiner clip-in loop.
Our model is 6ft tall, with a 38" chest, and wears a size Medium.
