Updated and improved Torrentshell

I'm super stoked on the new Torrenshell, the Patagonia design team gave it some nice updates this year, improving on the original Torrentshell greatly. My favorite is the updated storm flap, which is slimmer and lower profile, making it easier to zip and unzip the jacket, while still being totally weather proof. The fabric and fit were also updated for better comfort and performance.
It's a great fully waterproof and windproof jacket, and stuffs into it's own front pocket which is great for travelling, or not taking up a lot of room in a pack or suit case.
