Updated for 2013! A fully waterproof and breathable 2.5 layer hard shell, the Patagonia Torrentshell Pant is an excellent lightweight option for hikers and backpackers seeking reliable protection from wet or windy weather.
Offering a balance of features and minimalistic design, the Torrentshell Pants offer durable weather protection that packs into the left hand pocket for storage. Patagonia uses its H2No Barrier technology to keep the elements on the outside while you remain dry inside. Patagonia's 2.5-layer H2No shell fabrics are waterproof, windproof, breathable and very packable. Water-repellent shell fabric combined with an H2No waterproof barrier and a raised pattern on the inside help to make the Torrentshell Pant's fabric light and compressible.
Other features of the Torrentshell Pants include two zippered hand pockets and one zippered back pocket for stowing small items. Ankle zippers with storm flaps extend to the knee to make it easier to take the Torrentshell Pant on and off over hiking footwear. An elastic waistband with a drawcord pull allows for fit adjustment.
Available in a variety of sizes, the Patagonia Torrentshell Pant offers a regular fit that layers well over base layers and lightweight hiking pants.
