Quality Jacket

    I love this jacket because it was economical and it has been working awesome! I took it on a 2 week whitewater kayaking trip and it always kept me dry back at camp. One of my favorite things about this jacket is the length. Definitely buy the Torrentshell in the "parka" version. It is longer to cover your bum and even your thighs. I bushwacked through thick cover after a storm and all the water on the flora stayed off of me! The pit zips also are a plus for when it's just to humid. This is a lightweight jacket that will keep you dry in any weather.

    Dry in the Burgh

      I bought this jacket in the beginning of October as my new wind breaker/rain jacket. I live in Pittsburgh and we get a lot of rain and wind. Anyways, it has the typical fit you would expect from Patagonia as well as the quality. Very breathable and surprisingly warm, I can wear this jacket in 35+ and be comfortable. For sizing info: I bought a L and I'm 5'11 165 lbs. and it fit me nicely with a little room. Highly recommend for areas wear precipitation is the regular.

        could be so much more...

          recently picked up this jacket, and was given the opportunity to test it in moderate rains. after 20 minutes of making my way through the storm, i felt moisture on my shoulders and stomach. i would not declare this jacket water "proof", more just a light resistant windbreaker. if you are looking for a "WATER PROOF" jacket this is probably not your best bet.

          3/4 length rain/wind parka

            It seems to be almost impossible to find a 3/4-length rain/wind shell but the Patagonia Torrentshell fits the bill. That extra length nicely covers your rear, unlike all the shorty rain/wind shells currently being sold. The construction quality is first rate - as you would expect from Patagonia. It's roomy enough to use with a fleece vest or light jacket and feels comfortable with regular walking around even without the zipper pits opened. I haven't yet tried it during rigorous hiking but feel confident that the fabric's breathablity plus those pit zips would do just fine. It packs down to almost nothing in size and weight yet provides excellent protection from the elements. The zipper is very substantial and the extra Velcro tabs are easy to engage and disengage as you zip the front. It has two outer pockets that are positioned low enough for comfortable hand-level access. The only improvement I can see is to have two inner zipper pockets instead of the single open one provided. Otherwise, I liked this shell so much I bought two more for my wife and son.

            6'4" 230. I like things more athletically...

            6'4" 230. I like things more athletically cut. Would you suggest large or extra large?

            Best Answer

            Not sure if anyone who's 6'4" 230 should ever wear a size large, but it might be worth a shot if you want a trim, athletic cut for the Torrentshell. I don't imagine the XL being too big or baggy though, and that would be the size I would typically recommend for someone of your size.

            edit - you want might to look at the regular Torrentshell, which is 4 inches shorter and a little more trim in the body than the Parka here

            I'm 5'9 150 lbs, want something a little...

            I'm 5'9 150 lbs, want something a little longer to wear as a ski shell.
            Think a L would be best?

            nice work on seeking out Patagonia's "tall fit" ski shell. Normally I'd recommend a medium for your size, unless you want quite a bit of a looser fit. The Torrentshell Parka here is 4 inches longer and a little roomier than the regular Torrentshell Jacket, so you'll already have quite a bit of extra length. Hope that helps man.
