    Awesome jacket!

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

    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.

    Very Disappointed

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    This rain jacket is marketed for use in really wet weather. I took it to Philmont Scout Ranch over the summer and was extremely disappointed in its performance. In heavy rain it leaks like a sieve. After only 30 minutes or so of being in the rain I was soaked all the way through. I expected a lot more from Patagonia. Not only is this jacket not worth the money, it's not even worth using. Next time I'll be wearing Frogg Toggs.

    Great Rain Jacket

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

    I think this is a great shell, and was clutch living through Seattle weather. True, this is not as breathable as a softshell. I should know, I wore this in inclement weather commuting on my bike for more than a year.

    However, if I ever got too steamy I just opened the pit zips or the neck a little bit. I also used this quite a bit hiking, and was really impressed with it's ability to handle sustained precipitation.

    Overall, very impressed with this as a "rain jacket". My girlfriend owns one and I just purchased one for my father for a gift.

    A gift for Dad.

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

    I got this for my dad and he seems pretty happy with it. This jacket fits true to size. The quality is fair but not the best by any means. For the average guy working around the yard, going shopping, or walking to the car in the rain, this coat is great. If you are looking to be out in some serious conditions I would keep looking. The Patagonia warranty is great but their quality seems to be slipping. The zippers on this coat could use major improvements. They just seem weak and you would expect better from Patagonia. Overall my dad likes it and seems happy. It will do great for what he needs but if your looking for a seriously tough rain jacket, keep looking.

    I'm done with Patagonia's DWR finish

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs large

    Bought a Torrentshell a decade ago, much better with a nice collar, but the finish flaked off, peeled at the seams, and had a funky plastic delamination smell, sticky feel. I sent it back to Patagonia, got a new one about 3 years ago. I wasn't crazy about the cheaper feel, but I gave it a shot.... Within a spring/fall transition, I noticed peeling seams. Later the DWR finish just 'wore off' in stress areas, and completely soaked my shoulders. I'm now sitting on another Patagonia gift card...
    my $19 eddie bauer is better

    Life in a plastic baggie

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs large

    This jacket keeps out rain. Not most of the rain, or even 99% of the rain: all of the rain.

    This might seem like a ringing endorsement until you see me, ascending out of a muddy canyon in a full downpour desperately flapping my jacket, trying to ventilate the miserable swampland that is my upper body.

    Or even later, relaxing under a tarp, waiting for the rain to pass, with the jacket crumpled up and tossed to the side until I "really" need it.

    These two moments, which I think thoroughly fall into "torrentshell situations" also build a case for how slim the jacket's window of usefulness really is: If I'm a swampy mess while moving, and feeling like a potato in a ziplock bag when sitting: when the hell am I gonna wear this thing?

    Because of this conundrum, I find the torrentshell to be the most underused part of my kit, and frequently consider switching back to a poncho for these kind of scenarios, since they pack smaller and weigh less.





    Works in limited situations

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

    The jacket does what it advertises—it keeps rain out, and it does it well.
    One of the drawbacks of the jacket is how unbreathable it is. It seems natural for rain jackets to be so, and even though there are zippers on both sides that are supposed to help with this very problem, it doesn't seem like they do so very effectively. I do not recommend if you're easily sweaty.
    This jacket is also very slight, in the sense that it only keeps rain out and does not provide any warmth. I would recommend a different jacket if you need to keep winter rains/snow out.

    Great Shell – Terrible Design

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

    Does it look great? Yes. Will this keep you dry? Yes. Will you be able to zip up the jacket with ease? No.

    This is my first Patagonia purchase and it will be my last. The zipper and flaps – designed to keep the water out – are God-awful. The zipper will constantly get jammed by one of the inner or outer flaps.

    I gave this jacket so many chances and now it's too late to return it. Background: I've been zipping up jackets for 30 years now maybe I have a defective item or my motor skills are deteriorating.

    Great shell, but missing something

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

    I've worn this jacket for roughly 50-60 trail miles. It held up great for HEAVY downpour in the trails of Vermont, and light side wards drizzle in MT hood, ORE. The only thing holding the 5 stars back for me is how it rides up while wearing my pack. My pack was different for both those occasions so not sure it was that. Every other mile i felt myself reaching back and pulling down the tail end of the thing. I do love the jacket and own 2 of them. One i bought myself, and the second I got from work. There is always one in my EDC at all times just in case. Gotta love the stowage pocket!

    Great shell, but missing something

    Great Rain Jacket

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size

    The Torrentshell is a great jacket for all around use. I gave this one as a gift to a buddy that bike commutes everywhere. Jacket breathes much better than most rain jackets in this price range which tend to feel like a plastic bag. He told me the jacket kept him dry on his 45min ride across town in a downpour the other day. Fit is true to size, but Patagonia does tend to fit a little more boxy than other brands. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great shell. If you have questions on this jacket, or Patagonia in general please contact me.

    Great Shell!

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

    I don't have a single complaint with this shell. For a simple shell, it works great in the rain just out and about around town, or works great out in the outdoors! Definitely something that is with me on a regular basis. There was a light drizzle this morning in Salt Lake City, and I just threw it on and stayed completely dry!

    Awesome Jacket

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    This jacket was given to a friend as a gift and he has nothing but good things to say about it. The price point is great and the jacket is simple yet very effective. The zipper is really easy to use and doesn't get snagged while the pockets are very large and can fit whatever you want. Very effective for protection from the rain and wind. He says he feels it runs a bit on the large side- however that is fine with him because he can layer underneath.

    Pretty Nice

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:True to size

    Sizing: I purchased a Large based on many reviews claiming that this jacket runs small, but it doesn't and a Medium would have worked quite well.

    I searched and read and sifted through so many different jackets and this one is definitely at the top of jackets in this price range. I am either going to exchange for a Medium or pick another of my top favorites based on style more than performance.

    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.
