Outdoor wear comes with certain expectations — when you head into the mountains, you want your gear to be waterproof, windproof, and offer some kind of resistance to abrasion. American outdoor apparel brand Patagonia takes these three protections to the extreme with its own H2No fabric. The innovative material is used in many of its pieces, including the signature Torrentshell Jacket.
This signature piece has recently been further upgraded from the 2.5L H2No® to the new 3-layer H2No® fabric. The Torrentshell 3L jacket remains as windproof as ever but the durability, breathability, and waterproof functions have been all been improved.
According to Patagonia, the 3-layer H2No® fabric not only guarantees exceptional waterproofing performance, but also high breathability. This is going to dramatically reduce that incredibly uncomfortable sticky feeling caused by high humidity environments and sweating. All of the zippers on the Torrentshell 3L Jacket are also DWR-treated to ensure no water can get inside the jacket. Venting pit zips are available too, which is always a welcome addition in tropical climates like Hong Kong.
Following the brand’s ethos in protecting nature, this new piece is made with 100% recycled ECONYL® nylon and is Fair Trade Certified sewn. Available in various sizes for men, women, and kids, the Torrentshell 3L might just be the ultimate choice for intrepid families.
