    Plan for rain.

    You can pretty much count on that whisphy-looking, bluish-grey cloud morphing into a dark, anvil-shaped thunderhead once the late afternoon rolls around, so be ready with the Patagonia Men's Stretch Rainshadow Jacket. Light, packable, and made with a burly H2No membrane, the Stretch Rainshadow acts as a portable roof to repel the surliest storms whether you're quickly packing up after a climb or scurrying back to treeline as a lightning storm tracks across the alpine. The hood of the Rainshadow can be worn over a climbing helmet and is fitted with a laminated visor with a single-handed drawcord pull for quick adjustments, and the hem and cuffs can be locked down to seal out wind and rain. Finally, the zippered chest pocket doubles as a stuff sack once the skies clear, so you'll always be able to bring the Rainshadow with you.

    • Light, packable rain shell made for alpine blizzards and downpours
    • H2No Performance Standard is reliably waterproof and breathable
    • Underarm ventilation zippers assure ample airflow
    • Adjustments at hem, helmet-compatible hood, and cuffs
    • Self-stuffs into chest pocket with carabiner clip-in loop
    • Item #PAT01AL

    Doesn't seem very durable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I've only used this jacket about 3 times, but already ran into issues.
    The back of the jacket started pilling after wearing a pack over this after the 1st use - I get that gear will eventually wear, but this seemed way too soon, so that's really disappointing.
    The jacket also stopped working to repel the water and it wet down, especially in the back near the pilling that happened. not sure if this is a factory defect, but it's pretty disappointing, because the jacket seemed great until it failed and started pilling after 1 use, and I always have great luck with Patagonia gear.

    Runs small - but I wouldn't recommend this at all based on the issues

    Great Jacket but it really is cut super large. I'm 6'2 230 and I needed to send back for a Large. I am a XL in all my other Patagonia gear, and was swimming in the XL. Always great service from Backcounty!

    Play in the Rain

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    • Weight: 160lbs

    This lightweight rain jacket is perfect for staying active in the rain. The jacket is breathable and the pit zips help maintain temperature. I like the oversized hood as well.

    I hike, bike, and wear this jacket around town.

    I would recommend this jacket for anyone looking for a comfortable, lightweight, and waterproof jacket.


    Awesome Rain Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    Took this out for the first time last weekend when we had heavy rain coming down up at the ski resorts. I'd say this jacket definitely does it's job since my buddy who was wearing a goretex jacket from underarmour soaked through within 2 hours and I was still bone dry under this jacket for the whole day we were up there. Definitely don't suggest riding on snow in the rain, but when a friend is only in town for the weekend, you just gotta send it! Super light weight, stretches very well, feels like its pretty abrasion resistant, but when you sacrifice weight, you have to sacrifice durability as well! Patagonia did a great job of finding a good weight to durability denier that breathes super well and I'm very glad I picked up this jacket. They may have fixed the sizing this year also because I normally wear a large and I bought the large and it fits like a glove.

    Possibly a defective jacket, it wet down

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    The jacket looks great and feels as light as a feather. My hubs was stoked to get this jacket for his birthday this year and even more stoked to get to wear it for the first time. Living in Portland, OR, we get a lot of rain and with that rain comes a need for ultra rainproof gear. This jacket was possibly a rare exception, possibly a defective item that made it out of the Patagonia factory, because it wet down within the very first hour of wearing it in the rain. After walking around in fairly, mild rain with the hood up, my husband asked me if the back of his neck was wet or just cold. Imagine my stunned disbelief when I found that the panel at the base of the hood was completely wet down and his shirt beneath it had begun to absorb rainwater. Fortunately, as proper Portlanders, we always keep spare jackets in the car, but we were really disappointed in this piece's performance. Judging by the other reviews on here, I'm confident that the jacket I bought was merely a defect and that Patagonia continues to be one of the best brands on the market.

    So far so good

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Bought the jacket to replace a size large Torrentshell that was lost on a trip. Previous reviews were helpful as the jacket does run big. I'm 6' 170 lbs. and it seems to fit well in the shoulders and torso, but the sleeves are a couple inches too long. I'm tempted to try a small, but I think this will be manageable with the Velcro wrist closures. Enough room to layer, but not noticeably baggy. Backcountry service was great; free two-day shipping arrived overnight in time for my weekend backpacking trip with rain in the forecast. Using the jacket as a stowable utility rain jacket for everyday use, but also for taking on backcountry hikes in the National Park prone to high humidity and pop-up daily showers. Didn't want to spend too much money on the higher performance rain gear, but wanted something that would be good enough for outlasting the short T-storms. Looking forward to seeing how it performs.

    Great Jacket, does run large.

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 205lbs

    As the other reviews say, this jacket does run large, had a customer purchase a small, who is roughly 5'11" and about 165 lbs and usually wears a medium, however the small fits perfectly, with room for a light layer underneath.
    Quality product from a quality brand.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    Definitely a great rain jacket, my go to on those rainy days. It does run a bit big, but I like my stuff a little bigger and longer so it was perfect. I usually wear a hoodie or a layer underneath it, so it works out perfectly! Wear this on really rainy days on campus as well as hiking and camping with inclement weather on the forecast. Packs very nicely into the chest pocket for backpacking, and is super lightweight

    Fantastic Rain Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    Patagonia does it again with another sweet rain jacket. This sucker has Patagonia's patented H2No membrane and it works great in even the wettest conditions. It also packs away really small and is super lightweight. My only gripe about it is that the sizing did run a little larger than I expected, especially in the sleeves. But with the velcro cuffs on the sleeve it's really not a big deal. The Noveau Green is a beautiful color. Get that one.

    Great Jacket

    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Purchased this for spring ski tours, breathable and has pit zips. Can dump heat when you need to and keeps you warm with some layers underneath. The stretchy fabric moves with you, doesn't feel or sound like a garbage bag like some other jackets.

    Sizing off

      Great jacket, perfect for backcountry touring, but Patagonia is off with their sizing for their regular fit. I'm 6'0, 165lbs and usually wear a medium but was swimming in this jacket. Sleeves were too long as was the overall length of the jacket. This medium was made for someone 6'2, 185lbs it's seems. Have run into this issue with their regular cuts like this. The slim fit seem to be appropriately sized however.

      Light weight jacket

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      Very nice light weight rain jacket, but unfortunately I returned mine because the sizing was really big. I bought this as an everyday jacket for spring, summer and fall. If your going to use it for outdoor activities like climbing, you may be ok with the extra room for mobility. It would be a great jacket to stuff in a day bag for hiking, etc. The material is pretty thin, so if you abuse your jackets I would question the durability over time.

      Unanswered Question

      Is this jacket strong / substantial enough for alpine skiing? I've been comparing it to the triolet and priolet, but it would be nice to have the lighter weight of the rain shadow.

      How would the waterproofing compare on this with other lightweight 2.5 layer shells like the Marmot Essence or Mountain Hardware Stretch Ozonic?

      Regular Fit? With the stretch feature, is this jacket truly a regular fit where I could layer an R1 and a Nano Hoodie for cold weather?

      Thomas, really depends on your build and the size you buy. I'm 6' 170 and would need a large if I were to layer a Nano and an R1, but a medium is great for just an R1 or something similar underneath.
