In dark, seriously wet weather, the Girls' Torrentshell Jacket shines. It's fully taped and made of a tough, 2.5-layer H2No(R) Performance Standard nylon ripstop fabric that has a waterproof/breathable barrier and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish for reliable protection from rain and wind. To keep heads dry and water off the eyes, there's a stay-put, 3-panel hood with an elasticized gusset under the brim and a built-in visor. Additional moisture-resisting details include a chin flap, a full-length waterproof coated zipper with internal storm flap, elasticized cuffs with hook-and-loop closure and a drawcord at the hem. Raglan sleeves provide mobility and a slight drop-tail hem gives a little extra coverage; two zippered side pockets have reflective webbing pulls and an internal mesh drop-in pocket holds valuables. Hand-me-down ID label inside.

Built with a rugged, waterproof, and stylish H2No nylon fabric, this full-zip jacket is equipped with a three-panel hood that comes complete with an elastic adjuster while the drop tail, drawcord hem and hook-and-loop cuffs ensure no sneaky winds or precipitation can weasel their way through to your "First Day of School" outfit.
