    Stay dry, without a shadow of doubt.

    No matter what way it presents itself, precipitation is simply just condensed, wet globules falling from the sky. Built for those who prefer to keep the invasive phenomenon at bay while embarking on alititude-gaining adventures, the Patagonia Women's Stretch Rainshadow Jacket provides glorified performance and protection against Mother Nature's harshest forms of moisture.

    Crafted with the waterproof yet breathable H2No fabric and the additional protection of a DWR treatment, this full-zip jacket is both lightweight and stretchy, so it avoids impeding your mobility even while it rebuffs rain, sleet, and snow. A helmet-compatible hood is easily rolled down and stowed should the sun come out to play. The hood is also fully equipped with a laminated visor and a single-pull adjustment tab, making on-the-go modifications easy as pie. In addition to its current waterproof membrane and DWR treatment, the Rainshadow is built with watertight zippers, including the underarm ventilation zips. The self-stuff chest pocket, minimalist hook-and-loop wrist closures, and dual-adjust drawcord hem seal the deal—or rather, seal you in for a good time.

    Perfect spring jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    A perfect spring jacket for sporadic rain showers. Comfortable, lightweight and quieter fabric then the torrentshell. The stretchy material is great for spring weather. Allowing you to quickly throw this on over a tank top or a light jacket.

    A Really Nice Shell/Windbreaker

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    I purchased this for my wife as she really needed a rain jacket/windbreaker. So far she loves it, the quality seems great and it has a really nice fit.

    H2YES

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    This was a straight-up disaster. I had purchased it specifically for an upcoming backpacking trip as it promised lightweight, waterproof breathability. Fortunately I tested it before the trip on a practice hike, because as it turned out it was nowhere close to being H2NO - quite the opposite. I was soaked very quickly during some rain showers and remained wet and clammy for the next several hours. The jacket took a full day to dry completely. It was a complete failure. Unfortunately I lost the jacket on the flight home, otherwise I would have returned it.

    Fully Featured Stretchy Ultralight Shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'4"

    The ultralight Stetch Rainshadow is one of the lightest fully-featured rain shells I have ever used. Weighing a scant 9.2 oz, the very packable Stretch Rainshadow has pit zippers, dual hand pockets, a drawcord hem, adjustable Velcro wrist stays, and a chest pocket that it packs into and can clip into a carabiner. All of its zippers are coated with a waterproof DWR coating.

    The stretchy fabric it is made of feels amazingly soft and it is super breathable. It does not have a hard shell feel to it at all and is very comfortable for casual wear or high output activity. If you are familiar with Patagonia products, imagine a little bit heavier, but way more wind and waterproof Houdini. I would say it is similar to the Outdoor Research Helium II and Marmot Essence, but better.

    Hoods are normally a big concern of mine in rain shells, but this helmet- compatible hood cinches down tight easily and stays in place.

    The fit is a regular fit, with appropriate room for layers. Some say it runs big, but I think it is true to size and built to accommodate layering. If you want a more snug and flattering fit, size down.

    It pairs wonderfully with the Patagonia R1 or any of stretchy synthetic insulated jackets ( Nano Air, Nano Air Hybrid, Arc'teryx Atom LT, The North Face Ventrix). It would be great for anything from spring backcountry skiing to hiking or climbing your favorite fourteener.

    I wore it all day long in the rain and snow in Yellowstone last weekend and stayed bone dry and comfortable. My only complaint is that it can get kind of soggy after heavy rain or being out in rain for long periods of time. Wearing it with another layer made it perfectly fine, but if you are only wearing a t-shirt under it, it might feel clammy on your skin. You will stay completely dry due to Patagonia's proprietary H2NO membrane, but it can get clammy. As long as you don't have expectations for this to be a 3L Gore-Tex Pro shell, you will love it.

    Bottom line: This is one of my favorite rain shells I've ever worn. I'm going to wear it every chance I get.

    Not waterproof.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 5'10"

    I really wanted to like this jacket. It is a great stretchy material, which is super comfy, but not waterproof at all. I stood in a light rain shower and it started seeping through after 5 minutes. The DWR coating wets very quickly and though the breathable layer tries to absorb the rain, you just feel like you have saran wrap stuck to your skin. I love Patagonia, but this is not a rain jacket.

    Bugaboos Approved

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 172lbs

    Took this jacket on its first trip and absolutely put it through the wringer climbing up in the Bugaboos. I tore holes in my climbing pants and my backpack, but this jacket stayed 100% intact as I worked my way up cracks and chimneys for 4 straight days. The stretch was great for climbing, and also, it's super breathable while still blocking wind and rain, which kept me from getting soaked from both sweat and the afternoon thunderstorms. Seriously, this jacket is perfect. Can't wait for winter to get here, because I'm sure it'll be great for backcountry skiing too.

    Great for Hiking & backpacking

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Extra Small
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    I wore this on a recent backpacking trip & it was perfect to fend off wind & light rain. It breathed, moved, & stowed well. I think I have every different type of rain coat that Patagonia makes & this was the perfect addition to my quiver for a backpacking trip.

    Better than the rest

      My girlfriend says: Patagonia outerwear never disappoints and this Stretch Rainshadow Jacket is no exception. The material is softer than previous rain jackets I have owned which makes it all the more comfortable. I am already picturing wearing it on a sunny backcountry ski tour (with some layers of course) for the waterproofing and breathability. Super versatile and comfy!

      Great rain jacket!!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XS
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      I researched this jacket a good deal before finally purchasing it. Initially, I wasn't sure about the price point, but I am so glad that I went for it! I have a few Patagonia Torentshell jackets and while they hold up well, the fit is not perfect and I hate the plastic feel (especially in the summer). I wasn't willing to shell out $300+ for a gore-tex model, so this Stretch Rainshadow caught my eye. The fit is spot-on for me. I am tall and thin (5'10, 125 lbs.) and often have trouble finding jackets that fit well in the body, but have sleeves that are still long enough. The XS in this is a perfect fit! It's fitted enough to wear to work, but still has enough room for an extra layer underneath (I tested it with a down vest and it was cozy and didn't look too bulky). The feel of the fabric in this jacket is wonderful. It is smooth and soft and the outer sheen has a matte look (I bought the black color). It is also stretchy enough to move comfortably with your body without feeling tight or restrained. I haven't tested it in torrential rain for hours, but it worked well for an extended time in light rain and in a quick downpour. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would definitely go for this option again!

      What's the main difference between Torrentshell jacket and Stretch rainshadow jacket?
      Is Stretch rainshadow jacket breathable?
      Thanks

      isabel,

      The Stretch Rainshadow is very soft and breathable for a hard shell jacket. The Stretch Torrentshell before it incorporated stretch panels, and the Stretch Rain Shadow here is entirely made from stretch fabric.
