Great value for a good price

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

Really good quality, does as advertised. I live in an extremely wet climate during the winter months and this jacket has never soaked through.

Good rain jacket

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

Good jacket keeps you very dry. Have had mine for about 7 months no problems. Can be a little steamy sometimes

Excellent rain jacket

I bought a TNF venture jacket size large and felt it didn't cover adequately, took it back and came on here to backcountry and purchased this awesome Patagonia jacket. It's super light , folds up tiny ( I've got an x-large) and it sheds water like crazy. The dill color is sweet and the fit is awesome , great job Patagonia!

Great for the price

Bought this jacket for a friend that wanted to hike more after fighting and winning a battle with cancer! This jacket is amazing for the price and is a great go to jacket that could live in a pack all summer.

Pretty Great!

It's very lightweight and quite packable. It doesn't breathe the best but the underarm vents do help quite a bit. I love the fit of it I'm 6'4" and the extra large fits perfectly and also fits well over a base layer such as the R4 fleece.

Functional

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jacket keeps me super dry even in the wettest weather. I would recommend looking into the Parka version. The only difference is that it is longer in the torso. This way, I can sit on wet logs or rocks and still be dry. The only issue is breathability. It's not horrendous by any means, but not as good as Gore-Tex. For the price, this is a great buy! Good pick.

In this picture, I'm using it as a packable wind-shell on the top of Katahdin, the Northern terminus of the AT in Maine.

Does what is expected

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great jacket. I'm 6ft 230lbs and the XL fits fine (room for layering). It is light weight and I love the quality. Fully taped seams and thoughtful additions such as Hood-Tuck/Roller system. Does not have any type of internal liner (designed for weight savings) and this jacket will feel a little 'sticky' on the skin if wearing a t-shirt underneath. I think it will do me great on the Colorado Trail this summer!

Fantastic for the price

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Works great as a rain shell and as a windbreaker. I waffled for a while but picked up the Torrentshell on sale. Much better quality than the Marmot Precip. Material is thicker and tougher. I got a S and I'm 5'5 150lb - it fits snug with just enough room to wear a Mont Bell Highland down jacket!

Functional & Stylish

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I bought this jacket for my brother who travels the world and, therefore, can go through several different climates on one trip. This jacket has proved to be functional as a waterproof shell, stylish, ultralight, and packable. Great jacket for traveling.

soaked through

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I realize that if one writes a review that is "too critical" or "too positive" the reader tends to through it out, but I have to say that I bought this Jacket with high hopes and took it to Alaska during the summer. I was sad to see that after steady rain (not even particularly heavy), it soaked through in the shoulders. On a 3 hour hike, it made for a pretty miserable day. Also, the length is a little short for my taste. As a wind breaker, it is fine, but I wouldn't rely on this jacket for rain protection.

Good basic jacket - But I returned it.

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

I bought this jacket on for ~$100 on clearance and was impressed with the typical Patagonia quality. The fit was great, with the size L being comfortable on my 195lb 6'1 frame. The reason I returned it was that it didn't seem like twice the jacket as the $50 Stoic that I bought on clearance. The Pata has old-school storm flaps to seal the zippers. The Stoic with sealed zippers however, has very tight underarms requiring me to send the very close fitting L back in for an XL. I noticed the tight fitting arm hole most when driving, with my hands outstretched.

Good

  • Gender: Male

After six months, I've noticed that I've used it less and less. It's works just as well in town and in the backcountry. It has one large pit zip on each arm, rolls up into it's pocket, and comes in nice bright colors (love ya guys over at patagonia for that). It's sized to work with a baselayer and a R1/R2 at most underneath. It's a solid jacket, but doesn't top the competition in anyway. I can't comment on breathability because I've never actually backpacked in heavy enough rain to warrant a rain jacket so I only wear it in town. But don't expect higher breathability than any other jacket. But it if you like it, simple as that.

Love it.

Great jacket, just what I was looking for a pack able jacket that didn't feel like I was going to rip it.

I agree with Sam

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had really high hopes for this jacket after reading the reviews. Wore it in Montana in a steady but not heavy rain and felt slight moisture in the shoulders. Decided to give it another chance and have worn it in pretty steady rain, light sprinkles and downpours and it just soaks through into my shoulders, arms, and back. Great looking jacket, but very disappointed in its ability to keep dry.

You always have patagonia's ironclad guarantee, or you can contact them to see what they can do for you.

Responded on

I contacted Patagonia about their Ironclad Guarantee and they were amazingly helpful and replaced the jacket. Rock n Roll Patagonia.

I thought I'd give a review for the non-mountain biking, non-rock climbing, and/or non-hiking constituents looking to purchase a jacket.

As my title suggests I wanted a jacket that kept me dry for more or less everyday activities. This coat does exactly that.

It is comfortable, has a slim profile, and comes in some great colors. Its a great jacket for the time of year when its between 50-70 degrees and you want to stay dry. That being said,the "pit zips" are especially helpful at the top part of that temperature range.

I am yet to figure out how it folds into a bundle but as they say, practice makes perfect.

I will also say that I had to re-order a small as I found the medium to be too big for my 5ft 10in, 175 lbs. frame.

I suggest this to anyone interested in a high quality, comfortable, stylish jacket at a great price.

Comes with me everywhere

Going on a hike, climb, fishing, anything outdoors, anything............... Bueller? This jacket packs down super easy into its pocket. Throw it in the pack anytime I'm headed anywhere and if the pack's full, it's clipped to the outside with the built in loop. Great jacket for when that threatening cloud out of nowhere has all of a sudden found you. For how light and small it is, it's a heavy duty enough jacket for most of the unexpected stuff any season except winter would throw at you. Great product.

As advertised!

Bright Blue! Stood up to the pouring Belgium rain... Perfect for standing around before a bike race, or anything else wet.

I absolutely love this jacket. Unlike Chris Reid, I have not had the problem of it loosing its waterproofing. Easy to pack down small and lightweight make this jacket great for climbing, backpacking, and the like. And if the jacket does loose waterproofing, buying some solution for it wouldn't be too costly. Great jacket and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone.
