The outer layer, or shell as it is sometimes known, has a big job to do. It is your best form of defence against wind, rain and snow. Choose a garment that will do all of the above, not just by fabric, but by DESIGN!
No matter what the weather, SWAZI® Watershield shells set the benchmark in high performance wet weather gear. They're simply in a class of their own!
Your essential outer layer (shell), Swazi wet weather jackets made from the best fabrics in the world, they are also designed specifically for the job of keeping you dry. Couple with insulating mid layers and base layers, Swazi's wet weather clothing will see you right in almost any weather mother nature can throw at you.
Windshield Outer Layers provide total all round wind protection with extra warmth and comfort for when it comes in hard and cold!
There's no point in wearing something that keeps out the rain if it keeps in the sweat - you still get wet!
We spend 2 years perfecting AEGIS® so that we ended up with a fabric that never gets wet, never let's moisture in from the outside, but lets moisture (perspiration) out. It breathes, but only in one direction (bit scary using that phrase these days...)
Great looking garments with superb performance mean this range is so stylish and so comfortable you will want to wear it all of the time.
A true performer in wet and/or windy weather.
We reckon it's one of the toughest jackets on the planet.

Dairy farmers favorite jacket!
I am a Dairy farmer in NZ. Third season in this jacket and it is still holding up.
Good pockets, good zip and not to heavy. Keeps me dry when it needs to.
I wash it with the stuff swazi recommended to keep it water proof.
I will say that I have had domes fitted to the hood/collar to stop hood flying off when it’s windy.
I have brought a “toughmotha” now and this torrent jacket will be my spare.
But it is still going strong for the abuse I have handed it.
Rough start, getting better, could use a few improvements
I was looking for a longer waterproof coat, nothing to heavy and preferably something for year round use that I could layer up under and wasn't finding much till my ex-pat best mate and now fully native Kiwi outdoorsman mention Swazi. The Torrent jacket seemed to fit the bill pretty well.
I couldn't find them for sale in the UK but ordering one directly from Swazi was easy, no issues at all just make sure to calculate your import duty so you don't get a surprise with that. Also make sure to double check your sizes on the Swazi site and get it right first time.
The coat arrived very quickly, and then promptly lost a popper off the storm flap the second day I wore it. A bit disappointing to say the least, but her name is in the coat so we can all blame Liza for that one. Never mind though, how a company manages a problem is where the good stand out.
Swazi has a European warranty repair partner with 'Scottish Mountain Gear' and the coat was booked in with then and shipper off before Christmas. The repair took a while due to covid delays but was covered under the warranty with no arguements from Swazi. Thumbs up for that.
Nearly three months after I bought it I've finally been able to wear it properly and in a range of weather conditions.
The material of the coat is light and thin, but quite rigid, it reminds me of modern sail cloth. It can feel quite odd to wear at times due to it's stiffness but you get used to it pretty quick. The weather proofing is excellent, a two…
