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

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 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!

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.

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

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.

5'8''/175 is pretty bulky I think...

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!!!

Great jacket.

Second one of these I've purchased. Gave one to my son at college because he lost my old marmot. This was better than my marmot and I'm a huge fan of theirs. Wore this in a pouring mountain rain stuck outside for a good hour+ and emerged completely dry. Really pleased with waterproof aspect. The hood is helpful and it's overall typical high quality Patagonia. Can't go wrong.

Bang for your buck

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

This is a good rain shell for the price, but is not Patagonia quality. It fits true to size, looks good, packs down well and protects from the rain, but I found myself getting very hot and sweaty in it, in not super hot temps. Besides breathability, it is a good product. Bottom line; its going to be as good or better than the other options for this price range, just not classic patagonia quality that comes with the name.

good for around town and backpacking

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

would not recomend it for climbing, not as durable, and not the most brethable.
the DWR didnt last as long as other jackets that i own, had to wash it with grangers.
taking those things aside, great jacket for the money and would recomend it

good bang for the buck

As far as rain shells go this one is pretty inexpensive! for a college student like myself who mostly spend the weekends out it's perfect. looks good, not constricting. It keeps ya from getting wet unless you're under a lot of pressure (physically). The waterproofness of this jacket fulfills the needs of most people for a really good price.

Shelter from the storm

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

The torrentshell is a great rain jacket. I have been in lots of rain storms with this thing and have never been wet. It doesn't
Breath the best so if you are doing something aerobic it can get kinda clamy inside. The pit zips are perfect if you are hiking, but I got pretty sweaty inside riding my bike in the rain. It packs down pretty small into its own pocket. I throw a small strap around it to compress it more when I'm putting it in a backpack. All and all its a great rain shell especially for the price

Patagonia Torrentshell

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

Patagonia's Torrentshell is a fully waterproof hardshell capable of withstanding anything from hurricane force winds and rain, to dust storms, to light afternoon showers. It has a Deluge DWR Finish, is highly breathable, underarm zips for dumping excess heat, a helmet compatible hood, very large front zip pockets, the ability to stow into it's own pocket for easy storage, and much more. For the price you will not find a better jacket that meets the same quality as the torrent shell. USSOCOM adopted a grey version of the Patagonia Torrentshell for their level 6 jacket in the Protective Combat Uniform line for SOF Operators. If this jacket is good enough for that group of people surely it is good enough for anyone else.

Love it

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

Bought one and loved it for summer use, with minimal clothes underneath (rain only). Liked it so much I bought the next size up for when I have much bulkier jackets underneath in winter.

Love the pit zips - unless it's a full-on no-holds-barred dead-of-winter shell I insist on them. Hood drawstrings work well in heavy rain/wind/snow, as does the waist drawstring. Sleeves at wrist are velcro adjustable.
