    Pay attention to return policy!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small

    I ordered this jacket to replace an older Torrentshell that became delaminated. Unfortunately this one was too big for me - sleeves were too long and zipper kept catching in the storm flap. I ordered a smaller size, but was surprised to find that I had waited too long to return the jacket that was too large. Backcountry.com has a very strict 30-day return policy for worn items without original packaging.

    Good first impression

    The day after getting this jacket I did an evening skin up Mission Ridge in a 38 degree blowing rain storm. With just a merino base I was warm and dry (I don't sweat a lot, so I'm not a good gauge for evaporative properties). The tabs on the pit zips and pocket zips where small and required I take my gloves off.

    EDIT UPDATE 2: Received new jacket and its spotless! Going to take it out in the predicted rain tomorrow and make sure it doesn't develop spots! Will take on a few trips and report back! However will report back sooner if I do get any spots! This ones color seems slightly different and I think that's a good thing, Im hoping that means no spots!


    EDIT UPDATE 1:
    So.... It keeps the rain out very well and it breathes nicely, fit is excellent and its almost perfect except..... After my first rain it started developing...spots?... The best I can compare what they look like is oil stains.... I contacted Backcountry and they were AWESOME! I am sending mine back for a replacement, I'm hoping it was just a manufacturing fluke. Amazing customer service, very happy. Will update when I receive the new jacket.

    So far haven't tested this jacket yet, but initial fit and finish is very sharp. I am 5'10" 165lbs with an athletic/skinny build and the medium fits perfectly. The legend green is sick! love the color. Seems to be very capable of a wide range of movement and very light and pack-able. I will come back on here and update as I use this jacket this season.

    Initial impressions

    Somewhat breathable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had the Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket for a couple of years now and it's ok.

    On the good side, it does a decent job of keeping me dry while providing adequate breathability.

    On the downside, for $100 that's not exactly a ringing endorsement. I've had better luck with the Marmot PreCip.

    All in all, I've struggled with how clamy this jacket can feel, even when not working particuarly hard.

    Booyaaahh

    • Size Bought: Extra Large

    This jacket works great while i'm snowboarding. I even wear this jacket for spring steelhead fishing. The H2No is where it's at for staying dry. The forge grey is a smooth looking color as well!

    What a great Jacket!

      From four days of light and heavy rain in the Boundary waters to hiking with hail in the Tetons, this jacket holds up. It will likely last many seasons to come. The zippers could be better, but it's not a game changer. It's light, warm, and sheds rain like a champ. What more do you need?

      Very nice hood. It's easily adjustable once you figure out the tension buttons are hidden within the fabric. The hood actually moves with your head which is especially nice when on the bicycle commute in traffic. It also seems durable compared to many more lightweight rain shells. I think it will serve well for hiking and I'm willing to try it out climbing this spring too. The two hand pockets are a little on the small side and there is no chest pocket which would be nice but other than that it is a great rain shell so far.

      Haven't really had a real rain jacket before and this one looked like it had the best reviews. Fits me comfortably and feels light weight. Can't wait to use it in the rain.

      Wet inside and out

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      This jacket sheds water nicely. However, it also holds in moisture as much. During warm temps, I get hot wearing it.

      At one point during a rain, I removed it and preferred getting rained on.

      Also, if you want to wear it with short sleeves, be prepared for a wet clammy inner shell against your skin. Not comfortable.

      Very disappointed.

      Backcountry has a restocking fee for used merchandise. Not the best deal for me. I sent it back to Patagoinia for my money back. Unfortunately, since I did not buy it from Patagonia, they will only give me a gift card to their online store.

      This might be a good rain jacket for cool or cold temps, but definitely not normal to warm temps.

      Still looking for a light breathable rain jacket.

      Better performance for 20 more bucks

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      There are a lot of $100 rain jackets on the market. The ones I have tried have generally lasted a season before crapping out. The Torrentshell is so much better for not much of a price difference. $20 more buys you a fabric with more structure to it, better covered zippers and much more functional hood.

      Great buy!

      I got this for my boyfriend and he wears it as a light jacket even when it isn't raining because he likes it so much! The fit is great, and I got him the color Kelp Forrest, and he loves it. It's one of those jackets he will probably wear for 10 years and love forever .

      Love it!

      Let me start by saying that I first used this jacket for casual use in about 3 straight days of heavy rain, and it met my expectations. I haven't taken it out backpacking yet, but plan on doing so this spring. It's not the most technical jacket and I'm sure there are better jackets out there, but I doubt that you will find a better jacket at this price point. I have layered it with a fleece underneath and it works just fine. This jacket will suit my casual needs and being used on weekend backpacking trips.

      Awesome jacket!

      Great jacket. Vents under the armpits are great for to regulating temperature. I have two of these jackets - One for summer and one for winter to wear over top other jackets.

      What temperature ranges are best to wear the torrentshell jacket

      Is the Patagonia Torrentshell Pullover just as good, because i like the way it looks more but it doesn't have the pit zips. Do you think think the pit zips will be important?

      Any idea if this jacket would be appropriate for skiing? I only go really once or twice a year so I don't think I need a full-featured ski jacket, I'd rather buy one like this that can be used year-round.

      I'd say no, it isn't really designed for the punishment a jacket can get from skiing. But if you aren't going into the trees, hitting up the park, or expecting to not take a few falls then this should be ok. And ok is about what you'll get, skiing shells are designed with at least a minimal liner to protect from how cold the outer shell can get, rain jackets like this aren't built that way so you WILL need a pretty good mid layer if you want to ski with this jacket.

      I normally wear a large shirt. Will a large...

      I normally wear a large shirt. Will a large Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket leave sufficient room to layer underneath? The sleeves which are listed as 35-36"will be about 3-4" too long. Will it be reasonably easy to have the sleeves shortened? The reviews seem to conflict -- will the jacket protect in a heavy summer rain (both from heat and downpour)?

      Best Answer

      Hey Mike,



      If it helps, typically I wear a medium t-shirt but large in long sleeves and jackets. This rain jacket is designed to be loose fitting and to hand a little long in the sleeves so that you can pull it on without stripping layers and so that it will cover everything underneath. If you normally wear size large than I would honestly suggest you stick with that size for this fantastic jacket. I don't know if I would recommend using this jacket to beat the heat but to escape a summer rain this jacket will be perfect.
