Equally at home on an alpine approach and a windswept lake, the Torrid APEX Jacket offers warmth, wind protection, and moisture resistance at an ultralight weight. Designed to keep you warm while keeping your pack light, the jacket starts at just 7.75 ounces (220g). Built using 2oz/yd² CLIMASHIELD™ APEX synthetic insulation, the Torrid maintains warmth and breathability even when damp.

The smooth ultralight nylon fabric has a durable water repellent finish for better performance in light precipitation. The elastic waistband and cuffs keep warmth in and cold out. The optional hood adjusts with a shock cord, and a grosgrain zipper garage at the chin increases comfort. Zippered pockets keep the essentials at hand. The Torrid APEX Jacket is slightly oversized to accommodate layers, and has raglan sleeves for a full range of movement. For those who won’t let weather get in the way, the Torrid APEX Jacket is the perfect 3-season layer.    

If you'd rather have a collar, need a different size, or want a color that isn't available here, consider ordering a custom Torrid APEX Jacket.

Torrid - Compared to Patagonia and Ghost Whisperer

Although I never pay list price for clothing, I bit the bullet and got the Torrid jacket, expecting it to not live up to all the positive reviews. My main concern was the warmth, relative to my Patagonia Nano, and Ghost Whisperer jackets. Silly me! I tested the Torrid at freezing temps, vs both the other jackets, and found that the Torrid was a distinct notch warmer than the others. This without using the hood. Since I bikepack a lot, I wanted a synthetic jacket, lighter than my 13 oz Nano Puff, that had a hood and was warm and windproof. Bingo - at 8.8 ounces the Torrid filled the bill, and is now my main go-to jacket. Now, how to break it to the other two that they have been replaced?

Awesome Jacket

First of all...I LOVE this jacket. I've been looking at the Torrid jackets for a while and I finally decided to buy one. The build quality of the "off the shelf" jacket is prefect. I cant find a flaw in it. The jacket is super comfortable and very warm. I've been wearing it in a range from 28* at night to 50 * during the day. Its not super wind proof, so if there's a breeze you will fell it. A hard shell is needed when its breezy/windy.

My only complaint about this jacket is the main zipper. There's nothing wrong with it. It functions as designed. But its a #3 zipper, so its small. I would rather pay the price and weight penalty to have a #5 zipper. I feel that I have to be a little cautious with the zipper. It can be easy to misalign and get stuck. Otherwise I wouldn't change anything about the jacket.

Overall, this jacket is 100% worth the money. Its super comfortable, very light weight and so far very durable despite it being 10D. I think its my new favorite jacket. I will be ordering a custom jacket in the near future. I want to upgrade to 20D and different colors.

I 100% recommend this jacket!
