As the old adage goes "expect the unexpected," so when it comes to travel, hiking, or casual wear, look no further than the Patagonia Women's Torrentshell Jacket to provide steadfast and adaptive weather-proof protection. Equal parts packable and lightweight, the Torrentshell Jacket is bound to come in handy when afternoon showers interrupt clear skies on an afternoon hike, or simply stuff the jacket into one of its respective hand pockets when you don't need it.
More importantly, though, the Torrentshell is both waterproof and breathable, meaning you're safeguarded against precipitation?without feeling like you've got the Florida Everglades accumulating on the interior of the jacket. Additionally, an extra coating of DWR treatment bolsters your defense against moisture, while the adjustable hood, hem, and cuffs, double down on your protection. However should you begin to warm up, the zippered underarm vents allow you to release excess heat quickly rather than having to remove the entire jacket and compromise your protection.
