Solid Rain Jacket

If you are looking at rain jackets in this price range, I think the Torrentshell is a good choice. It is a basic jacket that does its job well--I have had mine for about two years now and haven't had any problems with waterproofness or overall durability.

Pros:
-Fairly lightweight at just 12.2 ounces and packs down into its own pocket.
-Patagonia quality and guarantee.
-Simple design, not gimmicky--it has the features you need and nothing more.

Cons:
-The DWR coating is starting to give out and the fabric will wet out in the rain, but that is fixable.
-The fit isn't great--like most Patagonia products, it runs on the baggier, boxier end of the spectrum. This may be great for some people but I am taller (6' 2" 185 lbs) so it's not ideal. The medium fits well enough though.
-Definitely not the most breathable jacket out there. Even wearing it for 5 minutes in cool, rainy weather it gets pretty clammy.

I'll probably upgrade to a more capable hardshell eventually, but in the meantime the Torrentshell definitely gets the job done. If you're in the market for a basic but high-quality rain jacket and you can snag this one on sale, I'd say go for it.

Best jacket in the price range.

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

I bought this jacket to use as a rain jacket while walking to class and also as a shell over a down jacket when I'm out camping.

Pros
-Watertproof; spent over 3 hours in medium to heavy rain at a college football game and I the jacket never wet out.
-Looks great; I ended up using this as my main light jacket this fall in the ozarks.
-Hood adjustments; they really allow you to get it snug around your head and I believe there would be enough room for a helmet if needed.
-Breathability; the pit vents give you a lot of flexibility with this jacket.
-Windproof
-Compact; being able to pack the jacket into it's pocket and attach to a backpack with a carabiner is excellent. I always take it with me on the trail and ended up using it as a trail pillow the last time I camped.

Cons
-Noisy; If you swing your arms when you walk, you are going to get that little 'swish' noise and it lightly crinkles when you move your arms around.
-No chest pocket; adding a chest pocket to either the inside or outside of the jacket would make it a much more trail friendly jacket.

Solid everyday jacket

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

The Torrentshell blow every other jacket in their category out of the water. Super waterproof, comfy non-stiff jacket. Really a good all around jacket that you can wear over anything and everything.

Stands up to New Orleans/South Louisiana

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

and if it can do that, it can stand up to anything. Ive run one of these for rainy season camping trips and for cruising around town. Good looking jacket, that I dont ever mind wearing to a pub or even a late season Mardi Gras parade. And, it is rugged enough to run around the swamps or woods with.

I especially dig the soft suede type material around the neck so you dont get rubbed raw by zippers or anything.

Size true to fit

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

I usually buy a size smaller on Patagonia, but took a swag and bought this true to size and it fit perfectly. I'm 170 and 5'8" and got a Medium. Love this jacket. Very comfortable, keeps me dry.

Perfect

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

I took a risk on the Torrentshell since I have enjoyed about every other Patagonia product I have purchased. So far, I have not been disappointed. The jacket is extremely breathable, light, and packs extremely small. Looking forward to taking out on the trail. I am 6' 215 and the XL fits perfectly.

Good value, looks great

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

This jacket does the job well. Wish the hood was a little bigger. Looks nice, typically fantastic Patagonia quality.

Oversized

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I'm 6'1 and 170 lbs. I normally wear a large shirt or jacket, the large Torrentshell was bigger than I like, long in the sleeves, long in the body, a little baggy in the chest. Normal size might be right if you like extra room, if you like you clothes at all on the fitted side, I'd recommend going down a size.

Good jacket for the price

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

I got this jacket for my dad when he went over to Ireland. He was a bit skeptical about paying this much for a rain jacket. I told him not to worry, it's a Patagonia. He didn't quite understand. When he got back from Ireland he couldn't stop telling me how awesome his jacket was and how dry it kept him. Now he understands.

Good jacket for the price

Good for the money thus far

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

Still new to me, but thus far has been good. I was able to put it through a pretty good rain-stormy day while biking to work. It kept the rain out well, seem to breath relatively well (compared to my old jackets). The pit zips were a struggle to open while biking with a hand on the bars as they got hung up on the jacket. Also the hood almost covers my entire helmet, but not quite. I'm sure it would cover a mountaineering helmet without question. The pit zips are a really nice feature to cool off on humid day. Thus far I'm happy with my purchase. I'll try to update this review in a few months (after summer passes).

Good so far

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

I have been caught in a couple rain storms and was glad to have it. Seems to breath well also.

I'm 5'11", 165 and I got a small and it fits just about right (my arms are a little long and it still works just fine).

I am 5'4 and I just ordered a small, will it fit?

I am looking for a good rain shell. Which...

I am looking for a good rain shell. Which jacket do you recommend, Marmot Precip, Patagonia Torrentshell, or Mountain Hardwear Plasmic?

Best Answer Responded on

The Patagonia Torrentshell is an excellent option. Personally I prefer the Torrentshell and Precip over the Plasmic because they have pit-zips and I feel like the fit is a little better. Between the torrentshell and Precip it is really a matter of fit. The Torrentshell is going to fit just a little shorter in the torso and slimmer than the Precip.

I received this jacket a few days ago and I simply couldn't be happier. I am 6ft 1, 180lbs and the large fits perfect! This morning, I took the pooch for a walk in a complete downpour and stayed 100% dry from the waist up. The hood is fantastic and easily adjustable. Moreover, the material is incredible: lightweight and comfortable (i.e. the liner will not stick to your skin). I had originally ordered the NF venture, I'm glad I made the switch!

Looks good even when sitting b*+c#...

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

I've had this jacket for 3 years now. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in it. I've worn it through 2 hurricanes (Irene and Isaac), heavy snow storms/blizzards in Michigan, and the everyday rain of New Orleans. It's kept me dry and warm. Could it be more breathable? Of course, but for the price you can't beat it.

Agreed!
Hahahaha. I admire the legs through the console technique, +3 pts.

That was out of necessity. I had excruciating tendenitis in both knees. And needed to make room for Lucy.

Torrentshell

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

Got this for my father and it fits like a charm. This jacket is light and packable with enough waterproof protection to hold over a storm.

Disappointed (again) with Patagonia

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I want to wear Patagonia, I swear I do. The reputation, the history, the quality. Yet every time I buy their gear, it lets me down. Mostly due to size, but more and more due to quality (or perceived quality). I'm not abnormally sized: athletic build 5'8"/175. Patagonia Large feels like XL and Medium feels like Small. I bought the Medium, and there was no way this was going over anything more than a shirt. Yet Large is too long, and has room for me to shove one of my kids inside along with me. This is at least the 5th piece of Patagonia gear that I've tried with disappointing results. Also, this jacket also didn't have that quality feel I've always associated with Patagonia. For lack of a more detailed explanation, it felt cheap. How substantial should a rain shell feel? More than this one. This had a cheap imported feel. For $130 I want a technical rain shell that doesn't feel like something hanging at Target. I know I'll keep trying Patagonia, but it would be nice if they'd meet me half way.

I'm speechless.

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

Got this for use as my shell and I definitely made a great choice. First off the fit: I normally like my jacket a little big and I got a Large and it fits perfect. I have full use of my pockets when I have my Harness on. Not to mention the fact is compacts into its own pocket!!!! I got it right when we have a horrible winter storm come through southern OH, and the jacket has kept me completely dry. Even in a full rain My shirt I was wearing stayed dry. Amazing jacket, one down side that I knew when I bought was only two pockets. But thats not hard to get over. Love it!!!
