The Enlightened Equipment Torrid Apex Jacket is an ultralight jacket insulated with Climashield Apex (synthetic). It is designed for backpackers looking for an insulating (at-rest or in-camp) layer that is more weather-resistant than a down-fill garment. The Torrid Apex features a minimalist design and low weight, making it especially popular among gram-counting ultralight backpackers and long-distance hikers.

It’s available in the following versions (custom versions give you access to more fabric, color, and hood vs. collar choices; custom spec weights range from 4.9 to 12.0 oz).
