    Patagonia torrentshell jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    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

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • 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!

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

    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.

    Best basic rain jacket I've owned

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I have owned a Marmot and North Face rain jacket and the Patagonia Torrentshell is a step up. I owned the previous model for 6 years and wore is frequently in San Francisco and Utah. Always did the job. After too much use the inner lining started to peel and Patagonia warranty replaced my jacket with the updated model. Improvements were subtle but on point. My go to rain jacket for the California coast.

    Versatile Value

      The Torrentshell is a great jacket and a good value, and newly updated for this season. Not every person needs a $300+ technical gore-tex shell, and not every outing calls for one - that's where the Torrentshell comes in. Several companies offer $99 rain jackets, and the Torrentshell here is designed as a step up from those, while not breaking the bank. It's well made, fully waterproof, and fully windproof. All seams are taped, and the fabric itself goes through rigorous testing in Patagonia's in house fabric lab. If you turn the Torrentshell inside out you can really see the quality. All seams are meticulously taped and the patterns are well thought out by the designers to fit well and move well.

      More expensive shells will give you lighter fabrics that offer more breathability. A lot of the time when people think their Torrentshell isn't waterproof, it's actually condensation building up from the inside, even if they're not sweating. Breathable jackets work by allowing water vapor out when there are different atmospheric pressures between the micro climate next to your body under the jacket, and the outside world. So in warmer climates especially it will seem like the jacket isn't keeping water out, but it's actually keeping water in.

      Back to the updated Torrentshell itself, the interior of the jacket is a textured pattern designed to keep the jacket off of the skin and give it a little more comfort, while protecting the waterproof membrane of the jacket. For 2016 the fabric was updated to a higher performing and softer version of the previous jacket. The back of the neck has a small fleece patch for comfort, and to protect the jacket for the oils of the skin since that is one of the main contact points for a shell. The jacket also packs into it's own pocket which is great for travel, or for not taking up a lot of space in a pack.

      To sum it up the Torrentshell is waterproof, packable and versatile. It is not the most technical jacket on the market, but Patagonia is confident that for $129 you are getting your money's worth on a jacket that will last a long time and travel well and many different trips and activities. Patagonia will back that up with the Iron Clad guarantee if you're ever unhappy with your purchase.

      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?

      I know this is a very late response- but I HAVE to have pit zips. I won't buy a rain shell without them! They make a huge difference to me between whether or not you end up soaked in your own sweat instead of rain :) gotta have that ventilation!

      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.
