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.

Important Note: Custom orders cannot be changed after order placement. Returned custom orders or custom orders cancelled after 48 hours will incur a 20% restocking fee. No exceptions.

Worth the wait!

After a long period of researching every backpacking jacket available (and there are MANY), I decided to go with this one (never mind that I was sold when I heard Darwin say he loved it). It is custom made and I was patient (somewhat...I looked at my order every day to see if it changed from "fulfillment"). It was absolutely worth the wait.

It's lightweight and great for backpacking. Though you can put it all into a pocket, the jacket doesn't offer the ability to close that pocket. However, I've determined that it's not really necessary. It pretty much stays in the pocket. It takes up very little space and it very lightweight.

It's warm. Very warm. I ordered the 20D outside, 7D inside. So far, it's exactly what I needed. I've been outside when it was 20 degrees and was comfortable in a t-shirt (actually started to sweat). I'll be taking it with me when I hike the Chicago Basin so I might be updating this after that experience. I will say that my super smart and amazing boyfriend said I should have ordered 10D, 7D but I never accept his "suggestions". Before making a decision, I would do a little more research on that aspect because I honestly feel like my jacket will keep me a bit more dry and I didn't mind the minuscule amount of extra weight. It really is preference.

As far as sizing, I'm 5'3 and 158 pounds (most days) and I ordered a medium which fits. It's snug at the wrists but has been nice when it's windy and cold. I can wear a sweater under it and it's comfortable but I have friends that like clothing a little more loose and would suggest one size larger for them.

For those purchasing for looks, I think it looks fab. I'm not a fashion guru and have often been called out by friends (seriously though...tennis shoes and skirts ARE cool) on my wardrobe but have had many compliments.

Overall, I would purchase this jacket again if needed (I tend to lose things often...it could happen).

I want to use it for everything.

I bought this jacket for backpacking as my previous (down) backpacking jackets were getting pretty flat. It's so comfortable that I started wearing it to work. I had to force myself to hang it where I couldn't see it so I wouldn't be tempted to wear it all the time so I wouldn't wear it out before I needed it for backpacking! I love that I can throw it on at rest stops over my sweaty shirt and it doesn't make the insulation wither.
