A fully waterproof and breathable 2.5-layer hard shell with liberal stretch built in at the knees, the Patagonia Men’s Torrentshell Stretch Pants are a great option for hikers and backpackers seeking lightweight protection from wet or windy weather.
Offering a balance of features and minimalist design, the Torrentshell Stretch Pants offer durable weather protection that packs down small for easy stowing in a pack when not needed. 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 Stretch Pants’ fabric light and compressible. The 2.5-layer stretch panels in the knees are also protective while offering increased mobility over many comparable pairs of rain pants.
Other features of the Torrentshell Stretch Pants include full-length 2-way side zips with coated, watertight zippers for no-hassle, super-fast on and off at the moment a storm strikes. The separating waist has a watertight zip fly with snap closure, partially elasticized waistband and snap tab closures at side zips. Elasticized cuffs with snap-tab closures at ankles further seal out moisture.
Available in a variety of sizes, the Patagonia Men’s Torrentshell Stretch Pants offer a regular fit that layers well over base layers and lightweight hiking pants.
