Also Available In:
Simple and no nonsense, Patagonia's trusted Torrentshell 3L Jacket is the core of their waterproof layering range - using 3-layer H2No® Performance Standard technology and now a PFC-free DWR finish (durable water repellent coating that does not contain perfluorinated chemicals) for exceptional waterproof/breathable performance, all-day comfort and long-lasting waterproof durability.
With a two-way-adjustable hood with a laminated visor that rolls down and stows with a simplified cord-and-hook design. The microfleece-lined neck provides comfort and protects with a waterproof/breathable barrier and a snag-free centre-front zipper with external and internal storm flaps and zipper-garage chin guard keeps the rain out.
Two handwarmer pockets and venting pit zips with welted exterior storm flaps allow you to quickly ventilate the jacket when active. The Jacket also self-stuffs into its left handwarmer pocket with carabiner clip-in loop so you can have it with you at all times.

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Patagonia was founded by Yvon Chouinard in 1973, the company's roots are in clothing for rock and alpine climbing, but they now produce a diverse mix of apparel targeted towards skiers, snowboarders, surfers and climbers. Patagonia are a world leader in creating ethical, sustainable clothing.
PFC-Free: Historically, waterproof finishes have been made using per- or polyfluorinated chemicals, which contain fluorine, great for water repellence but a “forever chemicals” that harms human and animal health and can persist in our environment for thousands of years. Patagonia have spent significant time, energy and dollars to find the best PFC- and PFAS-free alternatives without sacrificing performance and durability, setting a standard to eliminate the use of these chemistries industry wide.
Recycled Nylon: Patagonia have been using recycled polyester in their garments for 20 years, but for some reason locked deep in polymer chemistry, nylon is much more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, recycled nylon fibres that are suitable for apparel have been found. Some of the recycled nylon comes from post-industrial waste fibre, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fibre.
