The Patagonia Men's Torrentshell Jacket is a packable rain jacket for staying dry in wet weather. Go ahead, with the 2.5 layer waterproof/breathable H2No® Performance Standard Shell you can step out into the world, even if it's pouring rain or snowing (just add a few warm layers underneath if it's cold). It has been finished with a durable water repellent finish which allows moisture to bead up on the fabric surface and roll right off, so it won't soak in. Pull the hood on during the worst of days, adjust it at the front and back to maintain peripheral vision while you hike the forest or sprint down the sidewalk to get back to the office before that big meeting. Under the arms you'll find zippers, to release excess heat. The pockets aren't just for holding compass or wallet and keys. The whole jacket stuffs into the pocket and can be clipped to a pack, tossed into your messenger bag or just save space until the next storm rolls in.
