The Torrentshell windbreaker is sleek, packable and unpretentious, built with 100% recycled nylon ripstop and coated with a DWR finish with H2No Performance Standard protection to keep the weather off your back. The neck is lined with microfleece for comfort and the cuffs, hood and hem are all adjustable to help seal out precipitation. The two-way-adjustable hood features a laminated visor, and rolls down and stows away with a simplified cord-and-hook design. The whole jacket packs down and stuffs into it's own pocket with a carabiner clip-in loop (carabiner not included) for easy storage when not in use. It's hard to find a jacket with this many features at this price point. Snag yourself one before your friends and neighbors do.

H2No® Performance Standard - H2No Performance Standard is Patagonias benchmark for waterproof, breathability and durability, which ensures a high level of long-term performance backed by their Ironclad Guarantee. H2No Performance Standard products undergo the most rigorous testing in the industry. The H2No Performance Standard for waterproof shell garments is 20,000mm before, and 10,000mm after their Killer Wash test (per JIS L 1092 B).
bluesign® Approved - Since 2000, Patagonia has been working with bluesign® to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in the material supply chain.
bluesign® offers the highest level of consumer safety employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.
Fair Trade Certified Sewing - For every Fair Trade Certified item produced for Patagonia, they pay a community-development premium. The money goes into an account controlled by the cooperative of farmers or association of factory workers who decide how best to use it. The funds are designated for social, economic and environmental development projects. For example, cotton farmers may choose to use the money for agricultural improvements, rainwater catchment systems or to build a school or a health clinic. Workers in Fair Trade factories may invest in healthcare for their children, bicycles for easier transit to and from work or a cash bonus.
All workers in the factories and farms that make Fair Trade Certified clothing benefit from the funds, whether they work directly on Patagonia products or not.
Recycled Nylon - Nylon accounts for about 10% of ocean debris. By purchasing a product made with recycled nylon you are helping to minimize the growth of the 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean.
Water Resistant Fabric - A Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish allows fabric to shed moisture and prevents saturation to keep you warmer. DWR also helps repel oils and stains which can affect the fabric's breathability. Clothing with a DWR finish is a must in snowy or wet conditions.
Packable - Packs down into its own pocket for easy storage when not in use.
