Snow and sleet, freezing rain, tropical storms-are we gonna split hairs? Our Torrentshell Jacket keeps you dry through any variety of bone-soaking wet, with H2No(R) Performance Standard protection that's durable, lightweight and versatile. The 2.5-layer jacket uses a new 100% recycled nylon face fabric; has a waterproof/breathable barrier; a DWR (durable water repellent) finish; and stuffs into one of two zippered handwarmer pockets (with a carabiner clip-in loop). The 2-way-adjustable hood has a laminated visor, rolls down and stows away with a simplified cord-and-hook design; and the center zipper has a minimal-welt exterior and interior storm flaps. The ventilating pit-zips have storm flaps and DWR-treated zippers, and we've slightly lengthened the torso. With a microfleece-lined neck, hook-and-loop cuff closures and a drawcord hem.
