Cait R.wrote a review of Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket - Women's on August 30, 2012
I never leave home without this jacket, with good reason. I love that it packs into a pocket so I can easily throw it into my bag. Its become my top layer in winter when I ski in the Midwest. It layers great with my nano puff or re-tool snap fleece or just a sweatshirt when I'm skiing and doesn't bog me down like other shells I've had in the past. It breathes great and protects me from the wind and the rain.
I will say that when it gets really wet it gets clingy and you think that you're getting wet but you never really do. I've had other rain jackets that gave me a similar sensation but when it felt clingy that meant you were getting wet. I've learned to trust my torrentshell because it hasn't let me down yet.
