Absolute Favorite Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 185 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

Holy crap this jacket is awesome. My mind was blown when I learned how easy it is to tuck it into itself using the left pocket. The trick is to avoid folding the jacket in any way; stuff it like a magician would stuff a handkerchief into his hand. It also helps to run your hand into the pocket when you first invert it to make sure it's expanded completely.

The jacket fits amazingly well thanks to all the fasteners. It's also super light so it doesn't bother me that it permanently lives in my commuter backpack.

Great Rain Coat for the price

    Size Purchased: Medium

Not bad rain coat for the price, very durable for off trail travel and has held up to the rain in Georgia and West Virginia. I have worn this in the rain collective over 45 days and still holds up just fine. If your working a sweat you'll get a little moisture build up but even in the snow it still performs quite well.

Also works great with a Nano Air underneath on those cool, super windy days when you spend a little extra time up top to take pictures.

Great middle season jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 3"
    Weight: 185 lbs

First off, I actually own two of these jackets, so I will say I like them pretty good. I bought a brown one quite a few years ago and found a great deal on another color so decided to mix up the jacket selection a bit and added a red.

This is my go to jacket in the fall and spring even if there isn't a chance of rain. I hike, bike, and wear it walking down the side walk. It's just enough for those cool windy days to keep you comfortable while doing whatever you have planned outside.

It also repels rain! It's kept me dry during all day hikes in the mist to those hours from the car deluges that seem to end only when you make it back to the trailhead. If mother nature wants to throw the wet stuff out, this jacket will keep you dry.

As for fit, I bought these when I weighted about 50lbs heavier, so I own XL. They fit great then, now they are a little baggie. But they still don't feel huge on me so they still work great.

They have your typical jacket features, two zip up pockets on each side and an adjustable hood. The hood fits nice and doesn't swallow your head like some do. The zippers aren't the waterproof kind, but they do have an extra flap of material over them that keeps them from having to be. It doesn't have a chest pocket like most jacket do. It does have zelcroed straps on the cuffs so you can tighten them up to keep the elements out.

Like most of Patagonia's gear, the color are bright and last. No fading after lots of use. Durability wise, it has taken lots of abusive, from dragging on rocks, bushwhacking through rhododendron thickets, to having backpacking buckles rub on it for days on end, the material still looks great.

My only cons are that it doesn't breath super well. If it's a warm muggy day and you are active, you will sweat. The pit zips do help but you will get sticky. Also the DWR coating didn't seam to last very long and once it wore off, the jacket really soaked up the water. But I've added an aftermarket coating and it works just as good as it did new. If the DWR would have lasted longer, it would be a 5 star product.

Overall I have really been happy with my Torrentshells. On most trips from March to October, I have one in my pack or car just in case. They have provided me with hours of extra time outside when conditions weren't pristine and have kept other in!

Great middle season jacket!

Disappointment.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: L

Pros: True to size, I am 5' 8" 165lb and have a L. I have wide shoulders and a small waste. It fits great in the should and arm length but a little baggy in the waist but not too bad.
It does keep most of the wind out and SOME of the water.

I recently went on a 4 day hike along the AT. Our first day it started raining right off the bat. It wasn't a heavy rain but a constant, steady rain. I thought no big deal, I'll just put on my jacket. Much to my disappointment, after a couple hour of steady, constant rain I was soaked! I had worn the Jacket with the hood up and fully zipped closed (vents and all) the entire time and still got soaked. I was so wet I could feel water running down my arms inside the jacket! Other people in my group had different brand jackets of the same weight and style but they stayed bone dry. I did not expect this from A Patagonia product at all! Very disappointing!

If you are looking for a light windbreaker jacket that will keep out a light sprinkle/ mist, then this is your jacket. If you looking for something that will hold up to a steady rain that is slightly harder than a sprinkle, then I would recommend something different.

What temperature ranges are best to wear the torrentshell jacket

Responded on

Hi there,
The Torrentshell does not have any insulation itself- so it will only protect from rain and wind. If it is cold, I would recommend layering with it!

waterproof?

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

Bought this jacket based on numerous good reviews. It is my first Patagonia purchase and I have to say this jacket is not at all waterproof. Not sure if I've gotten a jacket with defective fabric but this soaked through in a moderate rain in the Pacific NW. This jacket couldn't handle anything more than mist. The cuffs were soaked and I was soon miserable in this. I wore it on two different times and was soaked each time. I will be returning this jacket.

Repels water well, and keeps it off the skin.

A great lightweight shell

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

I loved the price point on this jacket as a daily rain jacket I could use on camping trips as well, and I have not been disappointed. The torrent shell is completely waterproof for hours on end. The only reason to go Gore-Tex is if you will be giving it a ton of wear from climbing, if that isn't you don't get pulled into a $400 jacket, this $130 jacket will do anything you need it to.
The only issue I have had was one of the cinches in my hood popped off its glue point in the jacket, but Patagonia's Customer Service was great and they sent it back good as new for no charge.

LOVE IT

  • Gender: Male
  • Fit: True to size

I got the jacket two months ago and wear it every day. regardless of whether it rains, snow or strong wind always wear it. never miss the water. in the colder days wear a shirt with long sleeves and a fleece sweater and I was never cold. I am very satisfied with the 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?

Responded on

flo,
pit zips are nice to have, but not crucial for everyone. The pullover is definitely a cool piece, and the designers were trying to make it as simple and clean as possible.

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.

Responded on

This could definitely work as an occasional ski jacket for you. I would maybe just size up to give some additional coverage and room for layering in colder temps.

Responded on

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.

swamp camping trip. Stormed the whole time but was 70 degrees out. So, this jacket was perfect. Kept us dry but not sweating.

What Rain?

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

If you live in what us locals now call the "New Seattle" (Cleveland), then this jacket is a necessity. This thing is lightweight, blocks precip like no other, and fits like a charm. A few adjustable points around the waist as well as the hood make it able to fit anyway you want. You can't go wrong for the money with the Torrentshell.

Great Light Weight Rain Shell

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

I bought this to replace a similar North Face jacket which fell apart at the seems after 5 or 6 years(wasn't the jackets fault, I'm hard on my gear, but the hood literally fell off at the seem and the inner coating was flaking off everywhere). The Torrentshell is an excellent replacement. Couldn't be happier with it. The large fits perfect(6ft 190 lbs). Can fit a couple layers underneath if its cold, but doesn't look too big if you only have a tee shirt on underneath. Would certainly buy this again. It seems to be standing the test of time better than TNF did. Also seems to breath slightly better as I don't find myself damp on warmer days like I did in TNF.

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.

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.
