The Patagonia Men's Torrentshell Jacket is waterproof, windproof, durable and breathable. It also packs nicely into a bag or wherever else you want to stuff it. Keep those details to yourself. The laminated visor and extra waterproof fabric make sure you stay warm and dry during monsoons. The zipper and pit zips have storm flaps to make extra super sure the rain stays on the outside of the jacket. It goes great with peanut butter sandwiches.

"Incredible lightweight, comfortable, and functional shell!"
Couldn't praise this jacket more. Patagonia does it yet again with a quality jacket. Stuffs up ever so nicely into one of the pockets for easy packing just like most other Patagonia jackets. Combine this with a Nanopuff and/or R1 Fleece and you have yourself a nice jacket system that is versatile enough for any condition.
I got this jacket not knowing much about Patagonia's H2no fabric. Having owned various Patagonia articles and having been pleased with all of them, I trusted that the fabric would perform well. I had high expectations, but the Torrentshell has met and exceeded them. It's ability to shed water is pretty amazing. I wore it as an outer shell (over a Patagonia Cap4 Baselayer and the ArcTeryx Atom LT as a mid layer), during a recent ski trip and it repelled the wetness of falling in the snow (oops!) very well!
