Excellent in almost every way
Living in the PNW, I bought this as an everyday jacket. As titled, it is excellent in almost every way. The fit is fantastic. The feel of the fabric is super nice and quiet while wearing it. It repels the rain and breathes nicely. There is a catch - the one I have may be mis-sewed. The right collar angles in and irritates my chin unless it's z... Read Moreipped to the top. No amount of adjustment of the drawcords has corrected it. That bums me out, but I still wear it all the time. And I would highly recommend this jacket.
Great Ski Jacket
While not labeled as a ski jacket, it actually worked surprisingly well for me with a nanopuff hoodie underneath and wasn't too tight (size Med, 5'8, 160lb). It has got a bit of stretch to it, which is nice. Water proofing was more than a match for the snow and water dripping off the chairlift on me, and the draw cord on the bottom kept t...

Wouldn't want to use it skinning up as it is on the heavier side and lacks pit zips, but is a perfect resort jacket!
Almost the perfect jacket
Semi-tailored or slim cut jacket, a little too tight (not wide enough) on the shoulders and under arms, not much room for layers, and the hood does not stow-away in the collar for a more formal and sophisticated look, and there are two annoying plastic pieces that stick out from inside the collar (to tighten the hood I guess) when is open, otherwis... Read Moree, the perfect rain-snow jacket with dual utility for the city and trail. I like that fact that it does not have the informal shinny-nylon fabric look of a rain-snow shell, but it is one. This jacket has the potential, after fixing the above flawed designs, to be the perfect and stylish multi-use winter jacket.

I love Patagonia - fantastic company. My gripe with them is their sizing can be pretty off. My 15 year old is 5'5, about 115 lbs, and thin, muscular build. I bought this because we have been striking out on ski jackets this year. My thought was that my kid runs hot so this with the nano puff underneath and a hoodie would probably work as a ski... Read More jacket for the remainder of the season. It fit ok with the hoodie underneath but adding the nano puff made it too tight for skiing. I had his twin brother try it, who is 5'6 and about 105 lbs - a string bean, with long torso and long arms. This did not work for his build either - just because the arms weren't long enough. This was with only a hoodie underneath - no nano puff. I had previously bought the Snowshot in boys - XXL (or whatever the largest kids' size Patagonia makes) and it was too small as well. The quality of the coat and the color - fabulous!
Great replacement for my old Storm jacket
I like a lining in my hard shell, especially the hood. Outside and inside chest pockets are nice. To make this perfect for me, would be drop in pockets on the inside. Great crossover jacket for urban to the trails when rain is in the forecast. Thanks Patagonia.
An unexpectedly new favorite
Despite wearing Patagonia Snap T fleeces for my entire adult life (40 years) I have not owned any of their jackets other than a rain shell. I don't really like shells without lining, so prior to a 2 week trip to England, I bought this jacket. It felt substantial, the hood adjusted well and had the lining which I wanted. It fit small so I went ... Read Moreup an extra size from what I normally wear. Newer rain jackets I have noticed tend to fit tighter and longer in the sleeves which I wasn't initially very comfortable with but got used to. I always wear a fleece under my rain jackets. After walking around London for 2 weeks in 40's weather with rain and wind all day, I fell in love with this thing. I always stayed warm and dry, it covered everything and sealed up tight enough to never need an umbrella. It never hinted of soaking through the fabric and I never got excessively sweaty inside so it breathed well yet shielded the wind. The pockets were amply large so that I didn't need to carry a backpack for a large guidebook and camera. Pockets had a nice lining and left room to stick my hands for warmth even with my other stuff in there. My son is buying one now as well. Excellent product.
Comfortable, Stylish, Versatile Shell
I’m always on the go for work and play with lots of climates & continents and the Quandary Jkt is the solo piece of outerwear in my carry-on. The understated styling, slim fit and host of pockets make for a perfect combination of technical jacket that moves fluidly from outdoor activities to social affairs without missing a beat.
Solid city option
Needed a jacket that could straddle any combination of wind, rain or snow on my city commute and weekend travels. The shell is sturdy enough to stop wind, tight enough to retain some body heat for warmth, and it sheds rain and snow with ease. Solid construction for use in active pursuits, but understated enough to wear into a professional office en... Read Morevironment. Perfect.
Warm for what it is, a rain jacket, with sturdy construction. I'm 6' and slim (155 lbs) and I like things to fit slim. I got a small and it's perfect. If you like things a little baggier keep in mind that a small fit my height and weight close (which is what I like). I'd consider this "true to size"
