This jacket is bomber proof
I got this jacket for incredibly rainy days and skiing in the spring. My experience with this coat leaves me speechless. I have never owned a coat that keeps me so dry even when it's raining quarter sized drops. For skiing and other outdoor activities it is a great coat. I would recommend this to anyone in a rainy based state, and I would also recommend this to any active person looking to have consistency in their rain proof jacket.

Stayed Dry and Warm
Demoed this jacket for a week and really enjoyed how well it kept me dry and at the perfect temp. I took it out on a ski tour here in the Wasatch and it was absolutely dumping snow that day. The pit zips helped me dump out my heat as I hiked up the mountain and the GoreTex layer kept me totally dry. Once we got to the peak, the wind was howling! And this jacket kept every ounce of wind out.

Hard Working Shell
I demo'd this sweet ski / alpine shell both inbounds and in the backcountry recently, great for both. The fit is true and the C-knit backer gives the fabric a nice supple feel. Typical Patagonia attention to construction and materials and simple clean design. Came away unscathed from a tree hit that swelled my elbow for 3 days. I am confident it will hold up to the rigors or resort use while very packable for BC as well.

Great until it wasn't
I've owned this jacked for five winters, albeit I only spend a few weeks per winter in a cold enough climate to use this jacket. For four winters, it was my favorite jacket of all time. Then at the start of this winter, the side pocket zipper broke. I went to pull it closed, and the bottom section of the zipper began to come apart. A week later, I was skiing in a heavy snow in Switzerland and discovered the jacket was no longer waterproof. My wallet and phone, kept in my breast pocket, were soaked. As was my top inner layer. I checked if it was a seam problem, but upon testing at home, discovered that water was permeating straight through the shell. I've never had this happen to a goretex product, and am baffled why this was so sudden. I'm left wondering if Patagonia has a warranty on their jackets. Otherwise, I can't see myself ever buying their product again.

Great Quality, Poor Fit
Patagonia makes great quality gear, but the fit is often a challenge. Such is the case with this jacket. The chest and armholes are too tight. There’s no way I can add layers. And the hood is strangely big, even for a helmet compatible hood. At 5’11” and 175 lbs., I usually wear a medium. If I were to size up this jacket, the arms would be way too long. Unfortunately, this jacket has to go back.

Best Patagucci GoreTex All Around Jacket
This jacket is incredible. Just to test out the 3-layer Gore-Tex fabric I immediately took a shower with it on. Just sheer joy watching the water flow off! I used this jacket with my Patagonia down sweater hoody layered under while enduring 1 degree weather snowboarding at Jackson Hole. Kept me dry and without any worries. The beauty of this jacket is that it is super breathable as well so I take it with me backpacking or just walking to work in the city. Yes this jacket is expensive but investing in GoreTex is imperative for long lasting waterproof gear. I can see this jacket lasting me forever. You also can't beat the lifetime warranty of Patagonia. The sizing is also true to size. Without layers it doesn't look bulky while also leaving enough room for a down-layer with a baselayer.

Great jacket at this price.
I have used gore tex jackets for almost 30 years. I am a big believer. The stuff just works. In 30 years, I have completely worn out two coats, have a third, and just bought the Triolet. We wanted to move up from a plain wrap shell and this coat does it without costing you much more. Pros, although it may not be Pro Gore-Tex, it definitely is durable. The placement of all the pockets is spot on. I never had a jacket with pit zips and they are sweet because you can really open up the jacket when you are working hard without actually taking it off. I deliberately took this coat out on an hour long heavy rain hike and was perfectly dry. The hood is so good it almost feels like a helmet without the pinch. All of the shock cord adjustments work perfectly and are attached to the jacket so you don't have a big line of shock cord hanging off the coat if it is cinched down. The only down side is the inside pocket doesn't have a zipper but it will hold a hat and gloves. The last thing I noticed is that even with the coat completely unzipped down the front, the coat is tailored so it stays close to the body, which means it doesn't get caught up in brush . I am looking forward to years of being able to stay outside in bad weather and actually enjoy it. Regarding size, I am 5'7" but have a really broad shoulder. I have to wear large shirts. I ended up selecting an extra large jacket so I can wear this over anything. Some may call it baggy but I would describe it as a controlled loose fit.. The coat stays close to my body uniformly so it isn't like I have large flaps of material left over. I would buy the same size again without question.

Good Jacket, armholes far too high
I'm not a big guy. 5'10 185 athletic build. I tried on a medium after seeing reviews saying the fit was too baggy. I only had a fleece on underneath and the arm holes were so tight around my arm pit i knew there was no way i could possibly use this jacket for any sort of physical activity. Maybe it's just my build but i would think activewear would have more gusseted arms.

Patagonia's Do-Everything Weather Armor
About a year ago I picked up the Triolet before running to the hills on a big skiing and ice climbing trip. It was down to this and the Leashless jacket - Backcountry hooked me up with a free shipping label so I could buy both, choose which one I liked, and return the other - and I kept this puppy for the fit and GoreTex Pro. It has almost been a full year now and I couldn't be happier. The Triolet excels at everything from skiing at A-Basin and ice climbing in Ouray to carrying 70-80 pound loads during high-country storms in the Sawatch. The fit is just baggy enough that I can get my hooded 750-fill down jacket underneath to layer on really cold days, but doesn't leave me looking like a skater/snowboarder when I use it alone as a rain jacket. It's cut long enough to fit under a harness, and the arms are long enough to allow one to reach up and swing a tool overhead without pulling the bottom of the jacket up. The high-quality material and huge pit zips let you dump heat when needed, and the hood is big enough to comfortably fit over a climbing helmet unless you cinch it down to keep that favorite hat dry. Expensive? Maybe, but it'll save money in the long run because this dude does a little bit of everything and seems like it will last forever. I work as a youth backpacking guide in the summers around Leadville, and this year it never left my pack, never got washed, and never let moisture in. After that eight week torture test and a wash, it still looks new. I've trusted the Triolet in everything from early-season mountaineering blizzards at 13,800 to humid late-summer rainstorms while fishing in the southland, and you should too.
