The Patagonia Torrentshell 3L jacket will keep you looking on point and protected from the elements all at the same time.
As sustainability and eco-friendly fabrics become more popular due to the reality & clear impact of climate change, many brands are now changing how they source and manufacture their products. One brand that has really pioneered environmentally friendly fabrics from the beginning is Patagonia. Patagonia have not only inspired their consumers to be more environmentally aware but have also inspired other fashion and outdoors brands to be more pro-active when it comes to manufacturing garments from sustainable materials. Set up in California in 1973 by Yvon Chouinard, Patagonia is an outdoors brand who are on a mission to save our planet. Originally introduced for rock climbers, Patagonia has also diversified into the world of surfing and other extreme sports over the last 40 years. The world renowned outdoors brand donates 1% of all sales to environmental causes and works with a range of sustainable fabrics across their collections. Re-working fabrics out of recycled goods and limiting water use in production, Patagonia really set the bar when it comes to environmentally friendly apparel that also looks the part. We’ve now introduced the latest range from the Californian outdoors brand such as staple styles like the Patagonia Torrentshell 3L jacket.

The Torrentshell jacket is a high performance piece of outerwear which is perfect for the avid explorer or the daily commuter. Patagonia describe the jacket as “sleek, packable and unpretentious”, which sums up the staple outerwear piece in a nutshell. Made from 100% recycled nylon face fabric, the H2No™ Performance Standard fabric features a 2.5 layer nylon ripstop which is waterproof and breathable thanks to a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Other features include a micro-fleece lined neck for protection from the elements as well as an adjustable visor hood. The jacket is also fully packable and can be easily packed into the handwarmer pocket with a clip-in-loop system. The Torrentshell is a great outerwear addition to your wardrobe and was famously worn by Liam Gallagher at the premiere for Supersonic at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016.
