Here's what others have to say...

I'm 5'7", 125#, 34 chest, AND long waisted. Would you guys suggest small or medium?

Responded on

Hey Laurie,
Sounds like you need the small! Medium will give you an extra inch in length, but you would really need to layer up to fill that extra volume.
Scroll down and you'll see that Laura LaBar (Backcountry Gearhead) and several customers have provided some helpful measurements and respective sizes! I agree with Geoff Conner's response - go with chest measurement. Sounds like you are at the lower range of a small so I think you might be swimming in a medium. Hopefully that helps!

I am 5'7" and weigh 140lb, I usually wear a size 4 or a small in tops and size 6 in pants. I am debating whether a small or a medium would fit best for me in this jacket, and I would like to be able to layer it. Could you recommend what size would be best?

Responded on

Hey Heather,
Patagonia recommends a a size S for a size 4-6. However, for the best fit, I would recommend going of the chest measurements. A size S is going to fit a 34-35 in chest and a size M is going to fit a 36-37 in chest. If you have any more questions about this jacket or any other gear, please give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at gconner@backcountry.com

Heather,

If the extra info helps, I wear a Medium in the Torrentshell, and I'm 5'4'', 140 lbs, 36C, usually a size 6 in pants and a Medium in most tops.

THE ONE

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

After some very thorough research for a new rain jacket, I purchased the Patagonia Torrentshell. I compared it to the North Face Venture and the Marmot Precip--the Torrentshell won by a landslide. I used this jacket mainly while paddling in Resurrection Bay in Seward, AK. When you put this puppy on, you immediately feel a difference in material. It does NOT feel like a trash bag. The material is light, durable and comfortable. Armpit vents add great ventilation. The pockets are zippered, perfect for storing things you don't want to lose. Jacket stores inside itself--this was integral for backpacking, as I had limited room in my backpack. The hood has a stiff visor making it ideal for keeping precipitation off your face. The sleeves have velcro fasteners allowing you to cinch down the wrist cuffs. My favorite detail was the fleece lined zipper chin chin guard and fleece lined neck. It was such a subtle detail, but it made wearing a rain jacket 10x cozier. I am 5ft, 115 lbs, 34 bust. Size small fits great with room for layering.

Great rain jacket

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

This was a perfect purchase. Needed a super light rainjacket for afternoon thundershowers in northern Arizona. The rain can be torrential during the monsoon, so the jacket needed to be more than whisper light. This one fits the bill. I got the pineapple color - super cute and makes you visible without being neon while on the bike. I'm on the small side (5'5", 120 lbs) and got the XS -- it's plenty roomy if I want to have a sweatshirt or fleece underneath, but it's not too roomy. Patagonia quality. Nice. Happy!

What is the center back length on this jacket?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Michelle,

The center back length of a small is 28 inches. +/- 1 inch each size you go up or down.

Such rain, very lightening. Wow.

  • Fit: True to size

This jacket has seen all sort of weather, and does a great job keeping it out provided you zip it all all of the way. The arm vent zippers keep you from body suffocation while hiking around, and the hood comes with a neat little brim to keep water off your hair and out of your face (though as seen in the photo, sometimes its fun to let your hair out in a storm).

I trust this jacket and it's never given me any reason not to.

Can the Patagonia down sweater jacket be zipped into this Torrentshell and if so, do you buy the same size shell as the down jacket?
Thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Michelle,

The Down Sweater really isn't a zip in compatible piece. That doesn't mean it isn't a great jacket for layering. Honestly, the zip in tech trend is really more of a gimmick. Most good performance pieces wont be zip in compatible because the cost and weight doesn't outweigh any benefit it provides.

This jacket keeps me dry, doesn't make you sweat when it's warm out, and generally just makes you look like you know what you're doing....even when you don't. Isn't that what good gear is all about?

great upgrade!

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

I had my last Patagonia rain jacket for 10 years before it finally retired recently. I was not looking forward to a new one because I loved my old one. Well, in 10 years Patagonia has definitely upgraded it's basic rain jacket. So many new bells and whistles! I love the design of the highly adjustable hood, the velcro at the cuffs, the placement of the pockets, great pit zips, sweet color (I got pineapple which I prefer to think of as banana slug), soft spot at the back of the neck, etc. This jacket is comfortable, attractive, and functional. And because Patagonia products are of such high quality, I am so glad I will likely enjoy it for another 10 years!

I am trying to decide between a medium and...

I am trying to decide between a medium and large in this jacket, I am 5'10" and weigh 150lbs. I don't want it too tight that I couldn't wear a fleece under it too though. Any thoughts?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Erin, I would order that in Large so that you have enough room to layer underneath it. My shell personally runs more narrow through the hips so I find even if I don't have anything layered underneath the jacket it isn't too bulky. A really great measurement to go off of when jacket shopping online is your chest measurement. You'll want to measure around the fullest part of your bust and compare that measurement to the 'Chest' measurement on the Patagonia sizing chart, that way you know you are snagging a size that will fit around your chest (woman problems)

I hope that helps!

Excellent! Buy this raincoat!

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

I really did my research before making this purchase. Living, working and playing outside in the Pacific Northwest and I really wanted something light weight, breathable and feminine looking and this jacket has it all. It was between this and the Marmot PreCip and from what I've heard from others, they are both pretty comparable but the PRICE is what sold me on this one. I love it, it's great for layering and on it's own. I'm 5'11'' 140lbs and fit great in a medium. Only thing I would add is internal pockets for wet avoidance storage but it's a solid coat. Go for it!

perfect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Best rain jacket I've owned. I've had it for a year and absolutely no complaints. I live in Seattle and hike a lot, and this has met or exceeded expectations. I'm 5'6 125 lbs, usually a Small, I ordered a Medium in this and I'm glad I did -- I can use it in the winter over a ton of layers, but in the summer it doesn't feel hugely oversized when worn with just a tank. I even wore this as my outer layer snowboarding in a pinch and it was perfect.

Good lightweight weatherproof jacket

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

This jacket is perfect for making yourself impervious to wind and water. I gave it as a gift, but not after I put it on!

It has a lady curve kind of fit and is very light and compact, versatile enough to throw on in varying weather conditions. This should suffice on most days, but would likely benefit from some layering when it's very cold or snowy outside.

The inside is a weatherproof material and the jacket overall is pretty crinkly. This is expected of a jacket of this type, though. I guess it's probably kind of like wearing a tarp, but you know, way nicer. Has a lot of nice features like stuffing into its own pocket, armpit vents, weatherproof zippers, etc. The recipient was very excited to receive it, especially in the pretty polar blue color.

Is this jacket bulky and heavy? I need a jacket for Ireland in March this year, but I don't want it to be bulky and heavy and in the way but I do want the jacket to protect me against rain, windy and be comfortable when I am walking everywhere.

Responded on

Rebecca,
The Torrentshell would be perfect for sure. It's not bulky at all, will pack down into it's own pocket for storage, and will do a great job protecting you against wind and rain.

My go to-

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

I love Patagonia, with that being said it came as no surprise to me that this jacket would make the corners of my mouth stretch from cheek to cheek while also keeping me dry. I originally purchased it as a means to keep me dry while hiking during the not so sunny weather, but now as winter approaches I've been using a fleece under it because I enjoy the style of the jacket more than the winter coat that I was previously using. It has turned into the most versatile jackets I've had the pleasure of owning.
