Enlightened Equipment Mens Torrid Jacket


4.83 (6 reviews)

Enlightened Equipment Torrid Apex Jacket Men’s is an ultralight Men’s hooded jacket with minimalist design made from synthetic insulation. Designed for backpackers looking for an insulating layer that is more weather-resistant than a down-fill garment Jacket. It is very popular among gram-counting backpackers and long-distance hikers for chilly days and frosty nights at an unbeatable warmth to weight ratio and good compressibility.  Made  using 2oz/yd² CLIMASHIELD™ APEX synthetic insulation the Torrid Jacket is slightly oversized to accommodate layers.

  • Shock cord waist adjustment in pocket. Waist adjustment available only on stock Torrid

    Love this jacket. Weighs almost nothing and incredibly warm.

    Very good, and much as I expected after doing internet research prior to buying. Just 2 minor disappointments. (1) Does not compact down to fit in its own pocket, and is not as compressible as I would like in a stuff sac (but that is the price you pay for choosing synthetic insulation instead of down!)
    (2) When cinched down the hood tends to cover my eyes! This may be because I chose XL size (instead of L) to allow more room for under-layers; but it may also make the hood a looser fit and exacerbate the problem?
    I plan to use it as a cold-weather around-camp top layer, rather than active wear (on the go, walking).
