Men's Torrentshell PantsPatagonia
The Torrentshells do exactly what pared-down rainwear should: They keep you dry through steady showers or thunderboomers and they do it with breathability and zero excess. These H2No Performance Standard rain pants are made from 2.5-layer nylon ripstop (now 100% recycled) with a waterproof/breathable barrier and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. They feature a simple pull-on style with an elastic drawcord waistband, articulated knees, and now the water-resistant side zips extend from cuff to thigh for easy pull-on over boots, while doubling as vents. With two zippered handwarmer pockets (the pants stuff into the left pocket, with carabiner clip-in loop) and partly elasticized cuffs that adjust with a snap-tab closure.
