Keeps me dry!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 6"
    Weight: 145 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

The day my jacket arrived we had the biggest rain storm in ages. Kept me dry biking to/from work. Love the adjustable hood and vent. Great color (Mayan Yellow) helps me to be seen while out and about.

Holds up to the rain!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 4"
    Weight: 135 lbs
    Size Purchased: Small

I bought this jacket as a Christmas gift for my mom for our trip to Patagonia (Torres del Paine), and we ended up squabbling over who got to use it! It kept us dry during through the famous shifting Patagonia weather, where one minute it was abundant sunshine and the next it would be absolutely pouring with huge gusts of wind. It was roomy enough to wear a light fleece under. It is not quite as durable as a GoreTex jacket, but it holds up well and keeps you dry.

Patagonia Torrentshell jacket

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5' 3"
    Weight: 120 lbs
    Size Purchased: small

I loved the color of the jacket , the blue, but the fit has changed. It is longer and the body fits differently. I have a black one of the previous generation that I really liked. I am 5'3" 120 lbs. I have not really changed in measurements. I am returning it because the fit is unflattering on me.

Does anybody know what the weight of this jacket is?

Unanswered Question

How does the "waterproof rating" compare to the numbers that Marmot uses?

Tyrian Lavender...not purple.

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

I love this jacket! But....
The only complaint I have is that when I ordered the Tyrian Purple it was not as dark as pictured here. When I received it, it was more of a light lavender color. For this reason I returned it for a different color.

Love this jacket

The size is appropriate and the color is true as the picture

This review may be all preferential, but I unfortunately disliked this jacket although I love the Patagonia brand. What I disliked the most was the material. It felt very stiff and uncomfortable on bare skin because of plastic feel which can cause sweat. The fit of the jacket was off for me: ran too large and not flattering on my shape. The cuffs where too large, even with the adjusters. I usually purchase all of my clothing in a small and at times medium, and in this case for this jacket, I would have needed an extra small.

I ended up returning this jacket and went with the Mountain Hardware Banning rain jacket.

As expected from Patagonia

Great coat - durable, comfortable, fashionable. FIts well and provides both great rain and wind protection.

Good raincoat

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 5"
    Weight: 125 lbs
    Size Purchased: x-small

I bought this coat for an upcoming trip to Europe in the spring and wanted something to keep me dry while hiking in the Alps. I've used it in-town while disc-golfing when it's been windy in the 30's and doing errands around town in the rain/light snow. This coat is great! It definitely keeps you dry and also cuts a bit of the wind. I wear a north face thermoball jacket underneath and have plenty of room. I got an x-small for a more fitted look. I like the length of this coat because it extends down my bum. There are pit zips, which work great if you end up getting hot during physical activity. However, I have gotten cold when wearing this with my mid-layer when the temps drop into the 20's. But, this coat isn't designed for insulation during the wintertime. Great find!

How long are the sleeves? I'm 5'11" and always have issues with the sleeves and body being long enough.

Responded on

I 6'2" with a wingspan slightly longer than that. Buying my normal size jacket, the sleeves were long enough and then there is a velcro cuff to tighten it up if you need to keep it from getting in the way. Hope that helps a little. You can also get with one of the gearheads on chat and have them send someone to measure a specific size for you.

Good Stuff, as Expected

My wife loves this jacket and it has preformed for a few years now without letdown. H2No works great and it has handled everything thrown at it so far.

What is the center back length of a medium?

I finally broke down and bought a raincoat, and I'm so glad I picked this one! I bought it in birch white, which is holding up well. Love the pit zips, things can get a little steamy while disc golfing! I have enough room to layer a down mid layer under without it being to snug. Hand pockets are super soft on the inside as well! I'm 5' 6" 135lbs and bought the small. My hips are kind've wide, so its slightly snug, but zips fine! Can't say enough good things about this coat!

Could be a bit more waterproof

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

While in Costa Rica I had to lean on the "po man's umbrella" plants to keep me fully dry. The Patagonia Torrentshell was finally defeated in the rainy season of Costa Rica. Pretty impressive as it's been through rain in Moab, Zion and Munich this year. Overall it's a great jacket with a good fit and keeps you pretty dry. In extreme conditions I might look for something with that extra touch of waterproof. (Probably Gore-Tex instead to this H2NO. It'll get there someday though!)

I wear a small in pretty much everything I own and this Small is a great fit. Patagonia is known for their long arms and short torsos in jackets. The arms in these are a great length and the torso fits just fine. Hood is big enough for a helmet but with a cinch if you need to make it smaller.

Great rain jacket

Great rain jacket

Does a great job at keeping you dry in light to medium rain, but the rainy season in Costa Rica really tested the limits. I'll be taking some Nikwax to the jacket to see if it can be absolutely waterproof.

Love this shell!

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

I bought this shell to use for all seasons. So far I have used it this fall in rainy, windy weather and over the top of my down jacket for wind and rain. It keeps me warm and dry. I love the fact that the hood has a couple different ways to adjust it to make it fit tightly, loosely or rolled up when it's not needed. I like my jackets loose, so I did buy an xl so that I have plenty of room for layering underneath during the cool weather, yet it doesn't seem too big when worn over just a t-shirt for the warmer weather. I am very happy with this purchase!

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

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.
