This raincoat is super light for packing, doesnt wrinkle, keeps me dry, and is a great length. Also very stylish. I normally wear a small or medium depending on the cut, but had to go with the large in this coat. And because its a large, I have room for multiple clothing layers under it! Highly recommend. Just be aware of the sizing.
Love this Rain Coat!
I'd been researching rain coats to death and finally settled on the Torrentshell City Coat because of its 3L waterproofing and longer length. Wore it during a solid week of downpour and it definitely lived up to its hype. Money well spent!! I'm normally a small, but sized up to a medium for layering and I'm glad I did. Even in a medi...

not quite the one
I love my Torrentshell jacket and was hoping the City Rain Coat would also work for me. Sadly, it is cut a bit narrower across the shoulders and back. I would consider swapping for a larger size but am disappointed that it does not have pit zips, a feature that I love in the Torrentshell jacket. So I'm afraid this one is going back...

It is light weight and warm and comfortable. The only one thing I am not comfortable is the zipper. It grabs the fabric all the time. I wish the company use the better zipper.

Great Everyday Long Rain Jacket
I have the long nano puff jacket and this fits perfectly over it. I live in the Seattle area It rains a lot here. Waist length rain jackets are annoying because all the rain drips on to your legs.

Perfect Fit & Lined Pockets
Had been needing a longer rain jacket for a while, purchased a large with me being 5 10 and it fits the shoulders and length perfectly. Feels flattering without being to feminine. Love the lined pockets and sinch hood. Definitely recommend for city wear or hiking!
Too slim fit for layering
It is a well made garment, but ran too small for me to wear over a sweater or vest. I sadly returned it.

Beautiful and Waterproof Jacket!
I needed a rain jacket that was more of a parka length to help keep more of me dry when walking and working outside. My employer ordered this jacket for me to wear for work (I work outside, they asked me to pick a jacket for them to buy for me) and had the company logo embroidered onto it. I did not try the jacket on, and am almost always a large i... Read Moren Patagonia (I am a 5'6" woman, 180 lbs with curvy/athletic build). The jacket definitely fits me, with a very tailored fit. I am able to wear my Better Sweater under it, but it is definitely super snug in the chest and shoulders (I have a larger chest, about a 36 DD-DDD, as well as broad shoulders from lifting weights). That is not the fault of the jacket itself though! As I mentioned, I work outside, often standing and walking around in rain for several hours at a time. So far, this jacket has kept me perfectly dry and has not wetted out once! The water just keeps beading up and rolling off the jacket! It has a very flattering fit, and I have gotten so many compliments on it. The hood is pretty generous, and my only complaint might be that even with the drawstring to cinch the hood down in the back to make it fit better, it still sometimes hangs over my eyes unless I wear a ballcap underneath. I have a kinda small head though! Also, there are no pit zips in this jacket, which is a feature that I would love to see. If you are looking for a beautifully made and flattering jacket to keep you dry as you walk the dogs, walk around town, commute, or stand/sit at outdoor events this is the jacket for you! It is probably the most waterproof rain jacket I have ever worn (and I have had several big name rain jackets). If you need something more technical/for super active pursuits, I would suggest a Patagonia jacket with some more technical features/a different cut.
Im usually small but Im tall/lean but have pretty broad shoulders and long arms so I went with the medium so I could layer underneath in cooler wet weather. If I was only looking for a summer raincoat I would have chose a small. Sleeve length is great (longest arms of rain gear I have found). Also great length to hit at mid thigh. I like the clean ...

This looks like the Yosemite trench Patagonia used to make in that it is longer and the material is a little softer than their other rain jackets. However, the inside is horrible!

Great Coat - Hood could be Improved
This overall fit and function of this raincoat has been great for me, with a few areas of improvement for Patagonia to consider.

With the hood up, it feels like the whole coat is hanging off the top of my head, rather than my shoulders.

Despite this, still a great coat for me for now.
I liked the coat but the arms were tight even in the L size. There was limited arm movement and tight across the back.

Sleek, lightweight and waterproof
I love this latest version of the torrentshell because its so versatile. Its still a little crunchy with movement but all the added updates on the hood, zippers and style make it worth it.

I wear a medium in their slim fit. Special thanks to Ruth in Seattle for going the extra mile in helping me find this when my own online search failed. I received it from out of state within 48hours of ordering it from her.
I bought the small because the medium was too large for me. The small is too tight for layering.

I love the length and fit of this coat and it keeps me dry dying downpours. I have enough room to fit a fleece or puffer underneath when it is too chilly. Only downside is the size of the hood. If I have my hair in a ponytail the hood cannot cover my entire head, not a dealbreaker for me though.
Pricey, but better quality than other brands
Had to exchange the medium for a large; I normally wear a size 6, but the M coat was way too tight. Large fits much better, but am surprised by the narrow wrists.

I am always between a small and a medium, and this jacket was not small enough for me to return it, but in my opinion it runs just a little snug.

Response from PatagoniaJanuary 25, 2022
Hi Karen, thank you for this review. We're sorry to hear the Torrentshell 3L City Rain Coat isn't working for you! Please keep in mind you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) anything that doesn’t work out for you. Please reach out to our Customer Service Team if we can be of any help! What you were seeing with your previous jacket is called delamination. This can happen when contaminants like dirt, sweat, or oils from skin start to slowly separate the waterproof laminate from the outer fabric. A good way to prevent this from happening to the next jacket is to wash it more frequently. Depending on how often it's used, we suggest washing at least a couple of times per season. Here are some general care instructions for waterproof gear: machine wash warm, do not bleach, tumble dry low, warm iron, do not use fabric softeners. A performance detergent is preferable (Storm Clothing Wash, Nikwax Tech Wash, etc.), but any gentle detergent will do the trick. A post-wash tumble dry on low heat for 20 minutes will help revive the water repellent DWR finish. If the water repellent finish ever begins to fail DWR can be restored with a performance spray or wash-in treatment such as Storm Eco Proofer or Nikwax.

It's actually waterproof, no kidding.
I received this rain coat just in time for this fall's freakishly intense downpours that we've had here in Portland. Being someone who walks or bikes everywhere, I've been caught away from home in a couple of them. The inside of the coat has stayed completely dry. I am really happy with this purchase.

I had high hopes but I'm a little disappointed. It's not terrible and it gets the job done (you'll stay dry) but there's a lot of things I think could be better.

I am 5'9, 120lbs. I always buy an XS in Patagonia gear and usually my only complaint is that the arms are a bit short.

Its a great lighter weight rain jacket for those warmer days, but can also wear a lightweight sweater or thinner fleece if cooler. Ive gotten compliments on the color and fit. Definitely recommend this rain jacket!
2nd try better
I was attracted to the muted lavender purple color of this raincoat and bought it in SML which usually fits.

Perfect medium (for me at least)
After reading a number of reviews, I was somewhat hesitant to order a medium because a number of reviews stated the coat size ran small.

I asked him a number of questions, one being if a fleece vest would fit under this coat comfortably and he assured me it would. I also figured if it did run small, i could return it for the large. But I had full faith in the Patagonia size chart and Ryan, so I placed my order for the Torrentshell 3L City Rain Coat - MEDIUM. Four days later the coat arrived!! I opened the package and immediately tried it on. I already had on my fleece vest that I would wear under it on chilly days and donned the coat - it fit like a charm! It's meant to be fitted/have a fitted look, but I had sufficient room in the hips and shoulders. When I removed the vest, the coat had plenty of roominess. My recommendation would be measure yourself before you order and make sure your measurements fall in the range of the size chart. Great coat, I can't wait to wear it when it's raining! Thank you Patagonia and Ryan!

Great rain jacket
I grew up in the PNW but currently live in the Bay Area where we don't see much rain. My old longer rain jacket is a size XS and has been very tight /unwearable with my recent covid weight. We just had a week of rain and I really needed something that would protect me while I walk my dog, plus I am finally moving back to the NW later this year... Read More so I knew I'd need a good raincoat. This one fits the bill! It is a good length, very waterproof, comfortable, and stylish. I love the blue color. I ordered a L (I am 5'4'', ~145lbs mostly athletic build with some extra tummy fat thanks to covid) and normally wear a L in tops/jackets from Patagonia. I would say that this fits like a true L. I had some room to spare inside but as I prefer to be able to layer in case it is cold and rainy, this was ideal. Definitely recommend this coat!
Perfect raincoat for rainy Portland Oregon
We don't use umbrellas in Portland, so having a perfect raincoat is essential. And this is the perfect raincoat. I wear it over a suit for business, and over workout clothes for a hike or walking to the grocery store. I hope Patagonia makes this silhouette forever!
Raincoat does not fit well
Sadly I ordered this coat in both Med and Large. Good thing I like the color. THe fit is just terrible. The Med should fit me like a glove, it does not. When I put a sweater under it you cannot close it comfortably. It LG fits on the top loosely but the bottom is so huge it looks like swing skirt. I kept the large as I need a waterproof raincoat, b... Read Moreut it fit is just terrible. Too much money for something that fits that poorly. Needs major overhauling.
It definitely runs a Little small. All of my patagonia gear is a large with room for layers underneath but the large did not fit around my chest even with just a shirt on.

Love this rain coat
I love this rain coat! Im 52 & 125-130lbs. I ordered a small in the purple. The color is beautiful; better than expected even. Fit is great. I love the tapered cuffs. The collar stands straight and at the perfect height as it doesnt sit too low or hit my chin. The hoodie actually covers my face from the rain and stays in place when Im rushing a... Read Moreround, which is great. Its an ideal length for providing good coverage while not drowning my smaller frame out. Its really a cute, sophisticated looking rain jacket. Its lightweight and thin but with a sweater underneath, it keeps me warm. Perfect for Southern California and our rarer rainy days and cold windy days. Would definitely recommend.
Dog Walking Jacket
I was trying to find a perfect jacket to throw on for dog walks that would keep my legs a little drier in drizzly weather. I ordered a medium, which is my normal size, but needed to size up so I could layer underneath. Love the hood, the sleeves, and the length. Wish it had pit zips as I get warm during a long walk, but understand this is not s sup... Read Moreer technical piece.
Excellent Rain Jacket
I wanted a feminine rain jacket, that had 2 zippers to allow movement at the bottom. Also wanted zipped pockets to secure my phone and keys when in the rain. I'm completely dry in this jacket. Which is exactly what I wanted. I looked at several brands and chose this one due to the above functionality. I am very pleased with my purchase.
If anyone else is primarily sizing based on (large) bust measurements, it seems you can size down based on your other measurements and get a great fit. I'm 5'3", 120 pounds, and usually wear a size 4 in other brands (35" bust/26.5" waist/35" hips). I initially ordered the S because I was on the upper side of the listed... Read More chest measurements, but found it was pretty baggy. The XS fits me perfectly even though the listed bust measurements are 2-3" smaller than my measurements. Now that I found my size, I've found the sizing to be consistent and very thoughtful across products. I am using this as an outer shell and didn't need to "order up a size" to account for layering. I also got an XS Better Sweater (a fitted, very thick sweater). This rain jacket fits nicely if I'm wearing just a T-shirt underneath AND when I'm wearing my Better Sweater underneath. I can also switch out the sweater for a down jacket for colder temps and still have a good fit. The fit is great for a shell - it is neither baggy nor constricting with different levels of layering. I love the hyssop purple color. I was worried it would be too grey (it can be hard to tell from pictures), but it is a really lovely, soft purple color. The coat hits a few inches above my knees, which is perfect, since I am wearing it for city use and usually won't be wearing rain pants. I appreciate the attention to detail (handwarmer pockets, double sided zipper for sitting down, very adjustable hood to get a good fit). Also appreciate the sustainability mission and that I'll be able to repair it anytime I need to in the future. Very pleased! Thank you!
Sophisticated look for rainy days
I am always out walking the dog rain or shine, so I needed something that could withstand torrential downpours. This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. It is very slimming and figure flattering, yet still does the job of being waterproof. It has a very clean, modern look. Im happy I finally found something waterproof that doesnt look like a ... Read Moregarbage bag on me! I read some reviews that the material is loud and stiff, but I dont find that to be the case. It is more of a substantial weight rain coat material, which to me means it works well in the rain. Im 5 foot 4 inches and typically wear XS. This fits perfectly and hits above my knee.
Fashionable and fabulously functional!
I absolutely love this raincoat! I bought it for walks with my new puppy in Boston and it has been fantastic. Patagonia always delivers when it comes to function and performance, and this coat is no exception. It keeps me bone dry after long dog walks in the pouring rain. What I particularly appreciate about this coat (versus other models) are the ...

Patagonia Never Disappoints!
I absolutely love this coat! Patagonia never disappoints when it comes to function and performance. True to form, this coat is amazing in the pouring rain. I've worn it on long walks with my dog in the pouring rain and come home perfectly dry. What a particularly like beyond the performance is the fashionable styling with a fitted form, decora...

Great for rain and as a windbreaker.
Oh my gosh, do I like this coat. It covers very well, keeps the wind from getting through and is great in the rain.. The hood is much appreciated. It is roomy enough to wear a warmer garment underneath. I usually wear either my macro jacket under or my TechFace Hoody if it is cold, and if not, by itself on a windy day. I am snug and warm. Am I glad... Read More I bought this rain coat!
