Wet kids equal unhappy outings and frustrated parents. Sure, you brought a rain jacket, but didn’t you know your kiddo would beeline for every puddle on the trail? With the Baby Torrentshell, they can splash away to their heart’s content, thanks to three-layer waterproof/breathable fabric and the full-torso coverage offered by the bib fit. One parent also appreciated the adjustability provided by the chest cinch closures: “Despite the extreme wind and sleet trying its hardest to chill my little guy, after playing hard he was still dry and warm beneath,” he said after an outing in Nebraska’s Pioneers Park Nature Center. We suggest sizing up to ensure room for layering underneath when the mercury drops.
