Are Patagonia raincoats good?
The Patagonia Torrentshell outperformed all the other jackets we tested in key areas. It’s ridiculously waterproof and will keep you bone-dry in the worst rain, not to mention it’s extremely breathable, durable and comes with Patagonia’s lifetime Ironclad Guarantee.
Does Patagonia use Gore-Tex?
But it’s also considered the leader on the market when it comes to waterproofing technologies, and it’s used by a wide variety of brands. Even Patagonia has products that use Gore-Tex instead of their in-house technology, and those tend to be better, tougher and pricier. And that’s it for the intro.
What are Patagonia rain jackets made of?
Patagonia made the latest iteration of the Torrentshell with a three-layer construction — the same that you find on ski outerwear — that includes a recycled nylon face fabric, a waterproof membrane and a soft interior lining.
How do I clean my Torrentshell 3L?
It can be washed into a front-loading washing machine, in a permanent press setting, using a mild laundry detergent. Warm water of around 105°F / 40°C should be used, on a gentle cycle.
