Separated by an hour's drive, Vancouver's bustling Robson Street and Mount Seymour Trail share two traits-œa feast for the eyes and a lot of rain. Lightweight and travel-friendly, the Torrentshell provides full storm protection whether you're making your way through drizzle or slogging through seriously soaking conditions. It has a supple 2.5-layer, 100% recycled nylon ripstop shell with a tenacious waterproof/breathable barrier to block drenching rain and vent your internal combustion. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish increases water- and abrasion-resistance. The hood features a laminated visor that holds its shape in the wind and 2-way adjustability for a personalized fit. Internal and external storm flaps cover the front 2-way zipper; the external flaps have hidden snap closures for added protection. Plenty of pockets keep you organized, including two chest pockets, two lower top-loading front pockets, and two handwarmers lined with fleece for skin comfort. An internal adjustable drawcord keeps out wind and cold air. Lower hip length.
