Enlightened Equipment Torrid Jacket M’s


Weight: 240 g

Sometimes conditions are particularly challenging, and moisture penetrates clothing layers from inside and outside. In challenging wet conditions, a synthetic insulated jacket shines. It stays warm even when damp, and you don’t need to be afraid of wearing it over damp layers.

Enlightened Equipment Torrid Jacket is an ultralight classic: it has kept hikers warm in countless adventures throughout the years. With a featherlight weight of 215 grams (S-size), it is also one of the lightest synthetic insulated jackets. We have selected the premium ultrathin 7D shell for the Torrid versio to minimize weight and bulk.

Torrid Jacket utilizes Climashield Apex insulation, which is one of the warmest and most durable synthetic fills. It will keep its loft for a long time, unlike some other synthetic fill materials.

    Almost destroyed the jacket with a knife when i open the box. No protection between the jacket and the lid. Really slow delivery time! 1 week for delivery from Finland to Sweden. The jacket, i love it!
