Our most technical Torrentshell, the Torrentshell Stretch Jacket is a fully-featured, waterproof/breathable H2No Performance Standard hard shell that incorporates 2.5-layer stretch nylon ripstop fabric panels through the arms and shoulders for generous mobility.
2.5-layer H2No Performance Standard shell fabrics are completely waterproof, windproof, breathable and highly packable for backpacking, alpine climbing and backcountry skiing. They combine a water-repellent shell fabric with a waterproof/breathable membrane and a protective top coat barrier without needing a protective lining fabric. A raised print layer is applied to decreased layering friction and increase moisture management.
2.5-layer H2No Performance Standard shell fabrics are coated with DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish that repels light rain and snow. In conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
All products bearing the H2No mark have been vigorously tested for durability in our 24 Killer Wash.
We promote fair labor practices, safe working conditions and environmental responsibility throughout the Patagonia supply chain.
