Patagonia Women's Torrentshell Waterproof/Rain Jacket

True To Size
February 8, 2021


Bought this for my daughter to wear around her college campus and she loves it...she has room to wear a fleece under it and she will need one to wear it in the mid south during their winter...only thing is I with Patagonia had more adult jacket/fleeces in XXS!

January 27, 2021

Light weight and comfortable

Hugs in all the right places and is perfect for windy days. A light sweater under will keep you warm!

November 19, 2020

Loved it

I loved it but xxs fit me a little big and Im 52 98 lbs. Other than that, its an awesome jacket for rain.

not rain proof

stupid jacket pretty much immediately soaks thru when its raining more than the tiniest sprinkle, what a waste of money

Perfect fit

Nice jacket. I really like the rain visor because it keeps the rain out of my eyes lol

Thru-hike to urban stroll

Perfect shell. Waterproof - definitely. Used this on my John Muir Trail thru-hike and also use it as my everyday/any day raincoat and windbreak. True to size and I would recommend it to all my hiker gals!

Great, BUT

I loved this jacket. Lightweight and great look. I bought it about two months ago and have worn it about 5 times. I washed it according to the instructions and parts of it turned colors.

I’d give a 5 stars

I’d give a 5 stars overall if the price wasn’t that pricey. I’m a single mom, despite the pricey jacket, it was worth the pay, because my daughter liked it and she said it keep her warm, and she since been wearing it almost every day at UAlbany in New York. She is a Californian and it’s her first time experience New York weather :(. So Patagonia ja... Read Morecket is a great choice for her. I read about Nano puff jacket. I’m trying to save up and get her the Nano puff hoodie jacket too. During this time of the year, She definitely can use this jacket over there. If I can afford it, I’d buy one for myself too- their jacket is light weight, soft and pretty insulated.

Don’t wash it

I washed my jacket and followed the instructions exactly. I washed it all by itself too. It turned blue in certain parts. I highly recommend not buying the white color. I’m very upset and this jacket is now a waste of my money....

Not what I expected

Very thin jacket and tight in chest when zipped

Response from Patagonia
November 27, 2019

Hi Erica! Thanks for your feedback. If this was too thin for your needs, we'd recommend the [Women's Cloud Ridge Jacket]( as it is a bit heavier and thicker. We're also always happy to give you any item's measurements chart so you can feel more confident about your next purchase. Please also feel free to [return]( this jacket if you'd like to do so, but haven't already.

Great coat

Light and simple and does the job. Keeps me dry and I can layer underneath.

Waterproof, comfortable and stylish

This jacket is fully waterproof and keeps me dry in the rain. I ordered a size small, which runs a bit big. I actually like the longer sleeves and length, as it provides more protection from the rain.

Light, comfortable, but unfortunately not waterproof

I was excited to continue to support Patagonia's exceptional efforts towards using almost exclusively recycled products to create their clothing lines by buying a new raincoat with the H2No design.

Thank you for your feedback on the Torrentshell Jacket, Lindsey! The Torrentshell is the most affordable waterproof jacket that we make but because of that it's not the most breathable and is not ideal for being active in very humid places. Please feel free to return the jacket for a [refund]( and check out the [Calcite Jacket]( for a more breathable waterproof option.

Sleeves comically long...

I've never had issues with sleeve length, but this jacket's sleeves fully covered my hands. The arms and body were also quite baggy. However, the chest was still tight.

Waterproof and windproof.

I'm a senior who's always cold and have worn this jacket non-stop because it's so good as a top layer.

Great For Weather Bad Zipper

This is a powerful jacket. I hiked in 10 degree weather with it, in snowy/rainy conditions. It is completely water proof and blocks the wind. However, the zippers continually snag. They get caught on the lining and are frustratingly difficult to get back on track. Not only is it the front zipper, but the side pockets as well. This is very annoying,...

Very Satisfied!

I bought this jacket for my college daughter for those wet campus days! It is perfect, she wore it immediately, it was a great fit. She can use it year around, I’m planning to purchase one for myself!

October 25, 2019


I bought this to replace my favorite LLBean jacket that went missing. I was skeptical of it living up to the quality of my old one, but it did! My favorite part is the zips under the armpits for ventilation so I can run in it! Also gets an A+ for having a hood big enough to fit all my curly hair into.

Great Jacket with a Zipper Issue

As far as comfort and staying dry in a rainstorm, this jacket gets two thumbs up. But it does have an issue with the zipper placket. The outer placket is fine; it's stiff enough that it stays out of the way when zipping the zipper. But the inner placket underneath the outer (which I'm sure is meant to keep the rain out of the zipper) is f... Read Morelexible and has a tendency to crease and get in the way of the zipper track. It's frustrating to either be in the jacket and trying to get it off or the opposite and the zipper gets jammed.

Great All Terrain Jacket!

I've put this jacket through the mill. Last winter I actually used it all season as a shell while skiing. I even took it all the way to Montana and wore it skiing for two weeks out there! It does great in all conditions, and I would recommend to anyone looking for an all around rain jacket!

October 7, 2019

Love the fit

The jacket looks nice, fits well, and hopefully will be very useful on a rainy day. Hasn't rained yet, so I haven't been able to try it out.

Had to replace a lost older version of this jacket. The new color was even nicer. ;-)

Strange Sizing

I love Patagonia products and would like to buy more. Unfortunately I am prevented from doing so by your sizing. Recently I tried on a Torrentshull jacket. It was great except the for the sizing. I had to go up to an XL for hip width (I usually take a size 14ish) and even then it was tight. The fabric that was not added to the hips was added to the... Read More shoulders which were very sloppy and the sleeves which were about 4" too long (and I have long arms). So it appears that your designer believes that when women got a little bigger around the hip area, their shoulders expand and their arms lengthen. Very very strange. It would be nice if you took a hard look at your sizing so we could all enjoy your clothes. Thanks for listening.

Response from Patagonia
October 8, 2019

Thank you for taking the time to express your feedback to us. We are constantly evolving our sizing in hopes that we can outfit as many body types as possible. Recently, we have started to further expand sizing, and we are sorry to hear that the fit has felt awkward to you. Please feel free to [send]( this jacket back to us and we hope we can offer a size that works better for you in the future.

Not waterproof but still love it

I absolutely love wearing this jacket out, except in the rain!! It's definitely a wind breaker and light weight and can be packed away and barely takes up any room but it's not waterproof. Maybe bc I washed it before I wore it, but I purchased it from DICKs sporting goods and I always wash my clothing before I wear them, sensitive skin. I... Read Moret's very stylish and fits me perfectly, I just wish it was waterproof since I did buy it specifically to wear on rainy days here in New York. It's perfect to wear over my Patagonia pull overs during autumn when it starts to get cold and windy. I only wish the fabric was waterproof, maybe I need to send it in to get re-coated but it does say on the sleeve H2N0, so I'm not sure if my material is just defective.

Torrentshell jacket

I have not been rained on yet but the jacket fit and feel is great. I wish the salmon color were a bit more orange :)

September 19, 2019


I actually had to size down for the jacket, but it’s very comfortable. It’s only breathable when the zippers are zipped down (which I prefer). I hate having to layer underneath to keep warm. The quality is great and you can tell that it was stitched well.

September 18, 2019


I bought this for trekking in Slovenia Julian Alps in September. I stayed dry on a rainy day and it kept me warm on a windy day. The under arm ventilation is a big plus. I’m 5’3 and 108 lbs, chose XS. The sleeves are just right size(often times they are too long for me) and I’m very happy about it.

September 13, 2019

Shielded against strong wind really

Shielded against strong wind really well on my hike today. I have to wait to try it in the rain, but I know my torrent shell pants work perfectly against heavy rain. The shoulders and arms are a little big for my liking. Size down was just a bit too tight at bottom of jacket.

September 13, 2019

Wrong color

The jackets great except the color on the website is SO DIFFERENT then actual jacket (resin yellow). I was really excited about this color combo until I received it in the Mail. It is so much more muted in person. A light grey and soft butter yellow. My husband calls it my rotten egg jacket. Only reason I kept it was because I needed it THAT day an...

Dry in Cambodia’s Monsoons!

I love the Torrentshell jacket and pants! I bought them to wear for field work in Cambodia”s Kapot Province on the southern coast in the middle of monsoon season. I have been happily dry even in the torrential down pours. They are also very easy to pack and fit into a small bag.

Not waterproof

Does not stand up to any level of rain, after about 10 minutes of rain the pockets fill with water and all my layers were soaked underneath. I never write reviews but Patagonia is supposed to be great quality but this jacket is terrible. Would not recommend wasting your money on this.

Great jacket

I love this jacket. It is so versatile - I can layer under it for winter hikes on days when the temp is above freezing, or I can wear it during a drizzly summer evening walk or just hanging out.

I really wanted to like this jacket

Based upon reviews and a friends recommendation, I carefully looked at the size chart and chose the M in teal. My daughter who lives in PGH, picked it up for me and sent it. I eagerly opened it up and immediately knew that no way was this going to fit. I was so disappointed. I am in my 60's so although I am fairly active, I have the weight gai... Read Moren going on around my middle and at 5'2" and although not obese, not what I was in my 20's. It was humiliating to not even be able to get it close to being zipped. The fit is meant for younger women who have not yet experienced the joys of menopausal spread. I love the mission of Patagonia. I want to support you. But I ended up buying a similar jacket from LL Bean because they seem to know women are not all 110 pounds and that as hard as we try, middle weight gain is a fact of life for some of us. Do you have any idea how discouraging it is to purchase something you are excited to own only to have the fit so small you feel like you must be hundreds of pounds over weight instead of about 15. ( I weigh 127 pounds) Not all Boomers climb mountains. Help us help you pursue your mission and design clothing that is not just for the active under 50's women.

Best Rain Jacket

Breathable, light weight, and comfortable. It fits well, a bit on the larger side, but you're able to have multiple layers underneath the jacket. Best rain jacket I've ever owned.

This rain jacket works great, took it hiking in the rainy season. Under constant rain for a couple hours, the sleeves did get wet and the water seeped through to my arms.

Lovely Jacket! Runs a little small.

I originally ordered a medium Torrentshell Jacket. I had to swap it in for a large. I would consider myself of average build, but have large cup size. If you're like me, consider bumping up a size. Plus, now I'll be able to wear my pfd under my rain jacket!

Mint green AND I can wear my climbing helmet under it? WIN.

First heads up that the vjosa green is more a mint green than a kelly green, but still GORGEOUS! My favorite part of this coat is the hood. It stays put and is far enough over your head to not let rain fall on your nose. It also fits OVER a helmet! I'm 5'4, 140 lbs and a medium is perfect.

Not Waterproof...

I live in Patagonia clothing, but this misses the mark for me. I wore this in a steady light rain, and was soaked down to my bottom layers within an hour. I even had standing water in the jacket's pockets! I am rather disappointed and in no way would I refer to this as a rain jacket.

I had a much cheaper Columbia rain jacket I used to wear and that didn't need Nixwax washing until several YEARS of use. I am EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED in this product and do not recommend this if you want to stay dry. I love Patagonia and thought this was a great addition to my gear, but it just left me soggy, cold and phoneless in Costa Rica for a week.

Not waterproof

I really want to like this jacket, the fit is good and the hood is adjustable, fits comfortably. Wore this hiking in Yosemite this past weekend and it was maybe about 1.5hr on and off medium rain, the rain completely gone through and my second layer of jacket got wet. I was surprised the product description said it's completely waterproof.

Nice jacket, bad zipper design

While most features of this jacket seem great including a full size hood, the zipper continuously gets caught on the inside fabric. This is really frustrating when you are standing in the rain and can't zip the jacket fully. I would also add the I typically wear an XS, and purchased an XS in this jacket, but it runs slighly large.

Great Jacket

This is a great rain jacket. It is lightweight but gets the job done. Love the vents and it is loose enough to wear a layer under if its cold out.

Great waterproof jacket.

I've had this jacket over a year now and wear it at least three days a week. I traveled and literally trekked two weeks across Ireland in very chilly/damp conditions and it really held up. It's good even in low 40 degree weather if you put a heavy sweater under it. I do jog in it often and it's a great heat container, but you will sw... Read Moreeat inside it. I just take it off as soon as I finish my run and turn it inside out to dry. My one complaint is the zipper. It gets stuck a lot - I think the flap should actually be larger that covers it - that is what it gets stuck in all the time. But I would still buy this jacket again and again. It has been 100% waterproof for me in very heavy rains and long, wet hikes. I can usually wear a large pretty easily in all brands. I bought this in XL so I could pair it with heavy duty sweaters and wear it into the warmer parts of winter. I'm so glad I did. I use this jacket more than anything else in my outerwear closet.

November 23, 2018


DO NOT waste your money on this jacket. This is the worst rain jacket I have ever worn. It does not even deserve to be called a rain jacket. This is a shame to all rain jackets. Doesn’t even keep me dry when it sprinkles.

The tomato color is much more pink/coral than the red tomato color as pictured.

Fabulous Rain Jacket

As a 5'5," 110lb individual, finding rain jackets that fit are rare, and those that do often do not meet the conditions I am in. The hood is amazing!!!!!! It completely shields you from the rain, but doesn't impede vision. The jacket provides enough room to fit any sweater, puffer, sweatshirt underneath, which is great. When the rain...

Great jacket, but holds sweat

This jacket looks great (I love the Tomato color for making me more visible on roadways) and it keeps the rain out, but I feel damp inside from sweating when all I'm doing is walking (even with the underarm vents zipped open). I've always had this problem with waterproof clothing, which is why I generally avoid it (I don't believe th... Read Moreere's any such thing as "breathable" rain gear...).

October 10, 2018

Does not hold up in heavy rain

This jacket is great for light rain and wind! The sleeves are too long but I like them rolled a little. So far this jacket has been amazing in my rain shower little town however this jacket is NOT made for a constant downpour, even if the down pour is for only about 10 minutes. If you are going out in heavy rain, choose a different jacket!

September 1, 2018

XS too big now

The jacket itself is great. I owned a previous XS Torrentshell for 7 years before it stopped being completely waterproof. I have no doubts about the quality. I am just bummed about the size. This version's XS is a lot bigger than the previous versions, the length for everything is too long. However, the XXS is too small to layer underneath. I ... Read Moream 5'2 and weigh 104 lbs.

The best waterproof jacket I’ve ever owned

I walked 3 MILES in down pour rain and not only were my clothes completely dry underneath, it was breathable and comfortable in the 100% humidity weather. Even when I took off the jacket it dried within minutes so I didn’t have to carry around a wet jacket. Honestly the best waterproof jacket I’ve ever owned.

July 5, 2018

Love this jacket but..

I just bought this jacket for an upcoming trip to China. Bought in Maraschino red color and it is gorgeous. Haven't tried it out in the rain yet but I am very excited.

Great Fit But Not Waterproof

While I have been absolutely thrilled with the style and fit of this jacket,I was extremely disappointed when I wore it on my commute to work and got quite wet.

Need every color!

I bought my first one of these jackets about 2 years ago to test out for running in Northern Japan. It can be snowy,windy,icy,rainy--you name it--up here. Present day,I own about 6 of these jackets. I absolutely love them. When it is really cold,I layer it with a tight thermal shirt and an extra hoody,and if it's not too cold I get away with j... Read Moreust the tight light thermal underneath. You'd be very surprised how warm it keeps you due to it holding in (and keeping out) moisture.

Bonus: these jackets look awesome so I wear around for errands and still get comments on it.

Wind and water proof

I bought this jacket a few months ago in the fall and so far I really like it. It's thin which I know will be good on warm,rainy summer days. So far in the cooler weather it has been amazing with a warm sweater underneath. It fits a little big but that's good because you definitely want to have room for a thick layer underneath if it gets... Read More chilly where you live. I got the navy colour and I really enjoy it.

Miss a few features from the old version

I owned a version of this jacket for 6-7 years,and received this new one when my old pal just couldn't be repaired anymore. While it certainly does the job of keeping me dry,two things bug me almost every time I wear it: 1) No interior pocket. I really,really miss this,especially when traveling and hiking; and 2) Lower quality zipper. I fight ... Read Morewith this thing every time I try to zip up.

Perfect rain jacket

This is my first Pata jacket. I'm 5'2,97 or 99 lbs (weight varies depending on how much I eat. LOL),bought size xs,fits perfectly.

It keeps me warm in windy days with one LLBean fleece jacket underneath and temperatures around 60 (Side note that I am extremely sensitive to cold.) In warmer windy days with temperatures above 73,I don't sweat in this jacket neither. I don't understand how this is even possible?! But I am deeply impressed. I have to admit I'm not a hiker nor athletic type of person. I bought this jacket simply because its fame. But I am really really in love with it now. I ended up buying the down sweater hoody as well,hoping it can save me from being freezing in winter. I just hope I've chosen the right size (I bought size xs too but some reviews said it ran huge. Not sure. It's still on the road flying to me. Will come to update once I try it on) Very excited!! Becoming a fan of Patagonia!

Ran small,for me.

Jacket is awesome,but frustrating that it was so tight in the bust area. I usually wear a small in Patagonia brand but this jacket gave me the ever so attractive pancake boob.

Isn't Waterproof

This is the first review I've truly felt compelled to write about a clothing product from any company or vendor.

After just 20ish minutes in LIGHT rain,thi... Read Mores jacket begins fully soaking through on the arms and torso. After about 1 hour in light rain,whatever mid-layer I'm wearing under this shell gets completely wet. I've experienced this both on only the 2nd wear of this jacket,as well as after washing it as per Patagonia's recommendations for jacket care. Bottom line is it is not "completely waterproof" as advertised and was actually very disappointing.

Excellent shell!!

I bought this a couple of months ago for my trip to the PNW this month. From the rains of Olympic,the cold and snow of Mt.

A Good Rain Jacket

The first day my wife took this jacket out,it was raining heavily and we had to canoe 15km to our campsite. This jacket performed exceptionally well and kept her fleece layer dry. We spent about 3 hours under heavy rain and this jacket came through for her.

Dry and warm!

So glad I bought this system! I wore my Torrentshell jacket and pants during a hike on Mount Rainier during the first snow of the season. It was wet and snowy and cold.

Love it! Super light and feels very durable

I bought this a month ago on clearance and I've loved it so far. It feels very durable,it's easy to carry,and the waist is quite flattering. I wore it biking in SF,it was super windy and my arms were pretty cold because the wind shoots through the sleeves,so I'd recommend bikers to wear long sleeves underneath.

Read Morehoulders when I tried it on in store maybe a year ago. Possibly the sizing has changed,or possibly there's a large gap between XS and S,but this one is definitely a little big on me. I actually like that for the sleeves because it can easily go over puffy jackets and they are plenty long (all Pata sleeves are long on me). The extra room in the torso means the zipper kinks in an awkward way over my belly,but honestly it's a rain jacket so who really cares? I like having the big hood that can go over a helmet,and this one has two separate locations for cinching - the back cinch does the top of the hood,the chin cinches do the face - which is way easier to remember/figure out with cold fingers than my old jacket where they're right next to each other. The front zips up nice and high,but is not tight over my face and neck like many jackets - it's comfortable on its own,and will definitely fit over other fully zipped jackets. The soft lining over the face is also nice. The zipper and zip pockets work smoothly and the pockets are plenty big for hands or cell phone. Overall I'm happy with this and looking forward to a jacket that doesn't soak through next time it rains. It's not the most attractive fit though,so if that matters to you I recommend trying on in store or looking for one with more shape to it.

Great fit,looks perfect

I love this jacket. My red Patagonia rain jacket from 10 plus years ago finally quit holding out moisture. I got a size up and a blue,which I'd always wanted anyway. It fits well and is long enough. I wear a 2 or extra small in clothing but got a small to fit a sweater underneath. It's perfect. It's so worth it to spend a smudge more...

Runs tight

Bought this in small. Looking at the picture,the jacket appears to be straight cut and claims to be regular fit. I wear a small top and a size 2-4 pants. This jacket was fitted,but was tight if I wore anything underneath other than a long sleeved tee shirt. Will be returned.

Not waterproof!

I purchased this jacket a week ago. The fit was great,and I the jacket has great features. BUT,today I wore it for the first time in the rain for a hike. Water was soaking through the material after just 30 minutes. So disappointed!

Great Everyday Rain Jacket

I work on a boat in Hawai'i,and between torrential downpours and skiffing out to the mooring,I have quite a bit of use for a rain jacket.

Another great jacket!

I was very upset when Irealized I had lost my Patagonia rain jacket. Although I'd had it for a long time (10 years?). It still looked great and kept me dry.

Comfortable, lightweight, waterproof and warm!

Bought this a month ago for a trip to New Zealand and was not disappointed. Perfect coat for the unpredictable weather. Lightweight to pack and carry and pull out as needed but kept me warm and dry in the cold windy and rainy days that hit New Zealand (love New Zealand BTW!).

Packable waterproof jacket.

This jacket serves many purposes for me. It is packable,lightweight,waterproof,windproof and is still durable in the backcountry. Bonus-hood fits over my helmet. I only wish it had a chest pocket to access phone or notebook while wearing a pack belt.

January 12, 2017

Casual and cute!

This is my favorite rain jacket. It is very think so it easily fits in my bags,which is very convenient. Would recommend.

Great jacket,great customer service!

This is a replacement jacket for one I bought several years ago through another retailer. This time the sales people at the store told me how to take care of it so it would last even longer than the last one! I love Patagonia and everything the company stands for,and will encourage everyone to buy their outdoor gear from Patagonia.

I think this jacket is a great middle of the road water resistant raincoat I do wish however they would've not change the plain zipper for a zipper with the flap. the flap pops open and it also doesn't give an extra color in the jacket for pop but the fit is great and it does what it's supposed to

I bought this jacket for my wife for Christmas. She loves the jacket and recommends it highly due to the quality of the material and construction.

Not at all as expected:(

I bought this jacket for my daughter who is a tour guide on her college campus. I couldn't believe for the price how thin & short the jacket is. It also had a strange smell. We washed it but it still slightly smells. We love everything else we've purchased from Patagonia but not this jacket.

January 11, 2017

Good,simple rainjacket

Pros: It keeps out the rain,hood works great,fits well,looks good. Waist and hood cinches work well. Cons: Frustrstingly,the main zipper often catches when attempting to zip up and the lack of a chest pocket is a notable inconvenience (something I now see as a must-have in my next rain jacket).

Great Quality,Great Fit

I bought this as a gift. The quality of the jacket is great and the fit is perfect. Love Patagonia!

January 11, 2017


This is a great,high quality rain coat. I'm super happy with it. I got the purple color and it's a lighter,more muted purple than it appears to be on the screen,which was a pleasant surprise. The hood is a bit big for my head and obscures my vision sometimes (especially if the coat isn't zipped all the way up),but no biggie.

horrible job at keeping you dry

I bought this a month and a half ago for a three month research project in the Area de Conservati'n Guanacste and in the Monteverde Cloud Rainforest,both located in Costa Rica,and have been severely underwhelmed by the reliability of this rain jacket. As a long time Patagonia customer,I was excited to get my rain jacket and have something whic... Read Moreh I thought would be a useful piece of gear. The first time I wore the jacket,it worked well. However,after the third of fourth time wearing,I noticed that after less than 20 minutes in the rain,I was soaked. The rain just seems to soak through from the outer layer,and never fails to leave me wet and freezing,even if the rain is light. Another gal doing research with me bought the exact same jacket,and we both noticed the same problem. After a week,it had become completely useless in protecting me for the rain-- I'm glad I also brought a Columbia rain jacket with me,because it's been much more effective at keeping me dry.

Hood fits over my bike helmet!

Yep,it does. This is a great feature that I use quite often as I bike nearly every day regardless of weather in the Pacific Northwest. I ordered a L and I like that it is roomy enough to layer over top of another coat or fleece (which is what I will be doing in the winter). I am normally a M in most Patagonia shirts,but I like L in coats and jacket... Read Mores. The weight of the jacket is great,pretty light and the material is not noisy. The sleeves are long (but not too long,they don't look sloppy) which I like,especially when leaning over on my bike. The only weird thing is that there are no snaps or anything to close the flap that covers the zipper. Every other rain jacket I've owned has that feature. It hasn't been a problem until the other day when I was hiking and it started pouring rain. I'm pretty sure water leaked through the zipper. My shirt was wet there and only there. It wasn't a huge deal,but something to be aware of. Everywhere else was perfectly dry. That's the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars.

Great in a serious rain storm

I used this for the first time during a significant monsoon storm in the bottom of the Grand Canyon. It was great. I was completely dry inside while out working in the storm. It is lightweight to pack and held up well in harsh conditions.

LOVE it but would go a size down!

I bought this last month to use hiking in the rain and commuting on my bike. It works wonderful but its a little large on me. I am 5'3 and 115lbs and bought a small. I should of bought an XS. I layer under it with a cotton sweatshirt and I still have room. Other than that I love this jacket. Keeps me dry and the hood works great.

Zipper gets stuck

I bought this rain jacket in August 2016 at a Patagonia store on vacation due to unexpected inclement weather while at the jazz festival in Telluride Colorado. I absolutely love the jacket and its neat features, except....the fabric from the placket was getting stuck in the zipper every time I put it on. I considered returning it, but due to the ra... Read Morein every store in Telluride was sold out of rain jackets! Once home, I decided to sew the placket down by adding a second row of stitching to the finished jacket, effectively keeping the placket fabric away from the zipper pull tab. It worked like a dream! I've attached two photos of my handiwork. I realize that not everyone can sew, therefore I'm suggesting to Patagonia that they revise the design of this wonderful jacket to save customers the frustration that I had! If the zipper would have been designed so that it did not get stuck, I would have given this jacket 5 stars.

This jacket is nice and I'm sure it will get the job done but I had an older Torrentshell jacket and I loved that jacket - I think it was much nicer.

My chest,torso length and sleeve length usually requires at least a L when I usually need a S to fit my waist,I got a M and it fits great.

Perfect weight

I wasn't sure if I'd like this given the weight but it's perfect. I like that I can wear it in spring and fall and I can layer it with my vests for some added warmth. It's the prefect jacket for inclement weather and it folds up into nothing. Wore it to an outdoor concert in May at night. Love.
