Patagonia Men's Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket

Kinda Large
December 3, 2021

Too early too tell

I have not had time to wear it yet, so I have no comments on usage, but it is very well made.

December 3, 2021

Rain jacket superstar

Perfect for rainstorms to snowstorms...versatile

November 30, 2021

Great Rain Jacket

I love the jacket and it has proven to be water resistant. Moreover, it is light and can easily packed when needed. The Large size fits well and leaves some room in case I need to wear a warm sweater underneath. So far, I dont have any complaints or suggestions for improvement.

November 30, 2021

Out of proportion

Jacket runs small through chest for any under-layering and sleeves are ridiculously too long. Not sure who or what was used for the size model.

Hello Charles, we are sorry the sizing did not work out on the jacket. You are welcome to [return]( it. For reference, we can provide garment measurements if any sizing comparisons are needed.

Great Fit and Quality

Purchased this for casual wear and occasional hike or run in the rain. At 6 and about 168lbs, I can comfortably fit the Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket underneath and still have plenty of freedom and movement. But even without the Down Sweater Jacket and just a t-shirt or base layer along with a lite to mid-weight sweater, the rain jacket fits nicely... Read More.

Great rain coat

Nice looking. Packs very well. Perfect for travel. Thankful for Patagonia!

Love this jacket. Super light weight but perfect for walking the dog in the rain.

November 26, 2021


The best rain gear I've ever owned.

November 24, 2021

Solid rain jacket

Great rain jacket for everyday use. The 3 layers are a good improvement from the older version. Also appreciate the ability to stuff it into the pocket for travel. I'm 5'9" and 150 lbs. A small is a perfect fit. Still offers some room for a warmer layer underneath.

Great rain jacket let down by the details

I was really looking forward to trying a quality rain jacket from Patagonia after my Marmot Gore-tex gave up after 8 years of daily bicycle commutes through every weather pattern. Right off the bat, the jacket doesn't feel comfortable to the touch. It's very stiff and noisy. The lack of waterproof zippers is a big let down as was the non-... Read Morebreathable 'breathable' membrane. Even with the finicky two zipper pit vents there was very poor interior climate control. The final straw is the lack of chest pocket for your phone. Last thing you want to do is go fishing under your waterproof outer wear for your phone.

Hi Filippo, we're sorry to hear that the Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket didn't meet your needs. Try checking out the Men's Triolet Jacket, It features a 3-layer GORE-TEX fabric and has two roomier pockets on the chest. It might be just what you're looking for!

November 23, 2021

An inside pocket please

Just a pocket, inside, high chest

November 22, 2021

Extra Dry

This rain slicker will keep you dry in rainy weather. I wish the zipper would separate from both ends.

November 22, 2021

Needs to be re-designed

I bought this because it was so highly reviewed.... it looks like it will fulfill its function, but there are a couple of particular details that need to be re-designed: 1) I'm surprised at how tight the shoulders are: When I put it on, my arms have to go WAY back to go into the sleeves. 2) The hood is too tight: The brim doesn't have roo...

Did not like it.

I returned it because the material felt cheap.

Waterproof Boating Jacket

Excellent rain jacket. Lives up to the description and more!

Tight in the shoulders

Lightweight and packable

perfect for fishing in warm weather. Stay dry and not heat up. The only thing to improve is make the zipper open up on the bottom for sitting down

Great Jacket

A very well made jacket/shell which is definitely waterproof and windproof. Good for layering underneath!

November 19, 2021

A good title as is

Everything worked except how noisy it is! Loved the color. Loved the breathability.

November 18, 2021

Rugged and waterproof rain jacket

I purchased another brand with a softer shell and after 4 years the coating in the hood was worn out. I decided to go with Patagonia because of the XS size. The sleeve and jacket length fit me well. The only area that could use a bit more room is the under arm area. I am 5 2 with broad frame.

November 17, 2021

Great top layer

Love the fit as I am a little heavy but still allows me room to layer. It's very efficient in cooler nights when rain could be a threat. I recommend this garment.

November 17, 2021

Perfect Shell

Great jacket- runs a little large on me but Im 175lbs- great for layering underneath. Durable as any shell on the market.

November 16, 2021

Good in rain and cold

Fits well, good zippers

Great jacket, just a bit too big.

I love the Patagucci, its the best damned outdoor gear available. That being said, Im kinda big and tall. And every time a company makes XXL gear that is form fitting Im confused.

Fabric needs work

Fabric is stiff, boardy and makes too much noise. Patagonia needs to use a finishing plant with more expertise. Unsuitable!

We're sorry to hear that this jacket has been a disappointment. We do offer many other [rain jackets]( and would be happy to help you with an return. Thanks for the feedback, Scott!

Made walking in the rain enjoyable

I never liked being outside during the rain, but while wearing this my wife and I walked around downtown during the rain for about an hour with no issues! I haven't had it long enough to see how it holds up after a few washes but as a new jacket, the water proofing is amazing and it's super light and compact

November 15, 2021

Super waterproof

Quality product, great fit

November 14, 2021

Love it so far

Just want to comment on fit. 62long arms, 195 pounds after Covid :(. M fit looked the best and feels great, but if you were trying to layer anything more than a sweater of fleece it might be tight. I had assumed Id be a L but M feels much better for a warm warm weather hiking jacket.

November 13, 2021

Great except the hood

The hood falls down so far over my face it covers my entire nose, making for zero visibility. I have to fold the edge of the hood up, which is annoying. I wouldn't mind folding the hood if it was designed to do so. It needs design work to allow adjusting it to cover the head without covering the eyes.

Response from Patagonia
November 19, 2021

Hi Charles, we appreciate your feedback! The M's Torrentshell 3L Jacket will have a two-way adjustable hood to provide a more customized fit. However, if you are still finding the hood is not working for you, please know you are always welcome to initiate a [return]( under our Ironclad Guarantee.

Stay cords on hood

Stay cords do not stay tight around the hood area. But the product is very dry over all. I am still pleased with your product.

Nice rain shell. Works well. I only wish it had an inside pocket.

Super light and comfortable.

Very light and comfortable. You hardly know you are wearing a waterproof jacket except that it is a bit crinkly! I would have liked one or two inside chest pockets for phone or wallet as the only pockets are hand-warmer side pockets.

November 12, 2021

Keeps me dry

It keeps me dry in the rain. Thats all I really needed.

November 11, 2021

Great update to a classic!

Fits a little larger than the original Torrentshell, but that's not a bad thing. It will be much easier to fit a bulky down jacket than the original. I love the marginally thicker fabric.

November 11, 2021

Too small

I was so excited to see that Patagonia had finally (!) included 3XL size in a rain shell. A local store had one in stock. Trying it on over a Polo shirt revealed that the jacket is still cut to narrow for anyone with a muscular frame. I could not move my arms freely, let alone have worn the jacket with a sweater underneath. Very disappointing. Conv...

Runs too Large, otherwise no complaints

5'7, 132 lbs. Body measurements match the size I purchased. Unfortunately, runs too large for: the sleeve width and length, torso size (baggy), length (drops past my butt)

Hi Patrick! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the jacket fit so large. We really appreciate you sharing your experience along with your height/weight. This is great information and will help us to improve fit for future seasons. We've passed this along to our design crew!

Why no inner pockets!

I like this jacket a lot, (mostly) keeps the rain off my glasses and the rest of me. Sort of wish there were more fun colors though and really wish there were inner pockets. Such a waste of the interior space. (I always want more zippered pockets in everything i buy)

November 9, 2021

Water proof

Excellent water proof jacket

Best rain coat I ever owned

This is the best raincoat I ever owned. Never fear getting wet. True to size. Highly recommend.

Inca Trail test

Purchased the coat for a trek on Inca trail, and true to the advance reviews, the coat performed perfectly without water intrusion during some heavy rains. Great fit, stylish design, unique color, durable and waterproof. A winner.

Great for the rain. I also bought the Torrentshell pants to go along with it. I wanted something lighter than my shell jacket for skiing and this fit the bill.

Great rain gear

Unlike many other proclaimed breathable rain jackets I have owned, this one actually breathes and does not make me sweat of feel clammy. It also does not cling to me when wet. It is well vented, has an adjustable hood and fits well!

Just great!

I bought it super large and roomy. I love it but I am missing the inside pocket and not crazy about your logo on the front. But still great!

The Jacket and the Pants Perform as advertised

I usually don't write reviews, but after returning from my daily 5 mile walk with my Border Collie, I felt compelled to highly recommend the Men's Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket and Pants.

This issue is not enough to keep me from highly recommending both the jacket and the pants.

Exactly What I Wanted

The first week I had this jacket, it rained almost every day. Even though I was walking from home to office, I always arrived dry. Its lightweight but does the job.

November 3, 2021

Retains warmth

The hood could be a more fitted

November 3, 2021

Nice Improvement

I traded in a 10-year-old version of this jacket which ceased to fend off the rain even with a double application of DWR. I have put the new one through two downpours with no leakage. Plus it's more comfortable and better looking. Additionally, the old one had a lot of velcro which caused the arms to tangle with other parts. No more.

November 2, 2021

Very warm and rain proof

Shoulder fit is good. Garment is too long however .

October 31, 2021


Tight at the arm pits. Otherwise true to size.

October 31, 2021

Fits well as a casual wear raincoat

The sizing is correct and the features are appropriate to the use. I wish that it had a chest pocket for a phone and was slightly lighter weight. Patagonia made a superb ultralight raincoat with all of the right features back in 2017; for some reason, that coat is no longer available. This appears to be the least objectionable alternative.

If It works in Costa Rica, it works everywhere. Best rain jacket.

Great jacket. Im from Costa Rica which is in the tropics with lots of rain. I been under heavy rain for hours and this thing keeps me dry and comfortable to move during my inspections. Pura vida.

Great basic rain jacket

Sometimes you just need basic rain jacket that will keep you dry without tons of bells and whistles. Hood seems a bit tight over a helmet.

October 27, 2021

Awesome rain jacket

I read reviews about rain jackets and this one was rated best overall. I purchased one and have used it twice already in pouring rain and it works perfectly. Im very happy with this purchase and am waiting for one in the size and color for my wife right now.

October 27, 2021

Simple and Built to Last

Simple design and well built. Good hood adjustment makes for a nice fit with head, hat or bike helmet. Oversized underarm vents help keep me cool in warmer weather. Very happy with this purchase.

October 26, 2021

Perfect fit!

Perfect fit and works exactly as described! Inadvertently ordered an XL at first, but it was too large. Contacted Patagonia via their chat option and they quickly shipped me the L size. Excellent customer service. Will definitely be back!

Hood sucks!

Great for repelling the rain but I absolutely hate the hood. The hood doesnt fit, tightening the cords doesnt help. The hood tends to drop down over my eyes and the only thing I can see is my feet.

Nice Improvement

Just got this upgrade over my 10 year-old version. It wouldn't take waterproofing anymore, so Patagonia took it back in trade. Although I haven't tested the new one for water, I can tell the 3L is a huge upgrade and I have high expectations. And it's made out of old fish nets. Wow. That's a big deal.

Rain protection

The lighter weight of the coat is something I really like. fits over a sweater or vest with room to move freely. The hood also fits well over my cap. However, I have not as yet had to test its ability to keep me dry. I do like an inside zippered pocket when using it for travel.

They are oversized. I bought XS as Patagonia XS (34-35) usually fit right for me. They looked oversized when I tried them out but I thought I was imagining it. But nope, measured it with a tape measure today and it looks it is sized as an M (38-40).

Read Moreand I have used it regularly since for a wide variety of activities. This jacket has, generally, preformed well throughout all of them. It has a slightly large fit which permits layering but still fits well on its own (for reference I'm 5 foot 11 and 155 pounds, I got a medium). The waterproofing is good and I have yet to experience any wet out. With that being said, I haven't worn it in hard rain for more than 30 min so your mileage may vary. I have also used it as a stand-in hardshell when I forgot my normal one cross country skiing in harsh winter conditions. It held up surprisingly well considering it isn't built for that but let in more wind than I would have liked. Its breathability is alright and close to on par with my Gore-Tex jacket but not quite there. Its features are good enough. The hood design is well thought out and the pockets are generously sized. However I would have liked to see an internal drop-in style pocket. It has ways to tighten down the hem and wrists if need. Finally, the zippers are nice and won't be falling any time soon. Changes that could improve a future revision: - Add an internal drop pocket big enough to fit something like a stuffed puffy or folded up map -Add the same soft material on the back of the jacket (the part that touches your neck) to the zipper garage in the front (similar to a nano puff jacket) <-- not sure if this would be annoying when wet but the current revision can get a bit uncomfortable after long periods with the hood up and tightened.

Nice Lightweight Jacket

This is a nice lightweight rain jacket, with a nice light liner. Plenty of room to wear a hoodie or heavier shirt under it. Sharp style as well.

Trip to rainy Panama

I bought this jacket for a recent trip to Panama City , Panama. I knew it was rainy season but I did not expect 3 days of heavy rain. The jacket is light weight and the material is rain proof . The vents beneath the arm pits help in circulating air in the humid climate. This jacket travels well.

I live in south Florida and work valet, this keeps me dry and its light and breathable. Usually wear an XL but went with a large and it fits perfect.

July 22, 2021

Very durable

These jackets are great. I use them extensively in Southeast Alaska in the summers and fall. We get tons of rain here and this jacket always keeps me dry. For breathable material its very durable and will hold up to almost anything but take note they are not bulletproof. Im very hard on my gear and I usually get at least 2 seasons out of it before ... Read Moreit gets shredded but thats a lot considering the amount of abuse it gets. If youre just prancing around town when its misty this thing should last years.

Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed feedback, Sam! Depending on your usage, we thought you might want to take a look at our more durable but less breathable Hose-Down Slicker Jacket or our less waterproof, but more durable [Steel Forge Windbreaker Jacket](

Super nice

I like it a lot

July 17, 2021


This is my second Torrentshell rain jacket, the first one lasted me 12 years and is still going strong. It keeps me dry, not clammy, not hot in warmer weather and also has room to layer up underneath. I fish in this jacket, work in it and just always have it anywhere I go. Highly recommend it and the price is great. It will last you a long time....... Read More.Brian

great rain jacket

Been wearing Patagonia jackets for 25 years or more never disappointed. Keeps me dry and warm

Great warm season raincoat

Ive been a fan of the Torrentshell for years. Just bought my third one. Very good rain protection under warm-to-cool weather conditions. Nice details in underarm ventilation, hood adjustment, and taped zippers.

July 11, 2021

Very comfortable, great fit.

Would like to have an interior zipper chest pocket large enough for cell phone and ID.

July 11, 2021

Didnt fit see below

Ordered large it was to big reordered medium fit was to tight. Im 180 lbs and 58. Sent both back staff were very helpful. Bought a Patagonia MS Calcite Jacket gore Tex fit like a glove and ver happy.

Fit me weird

Material was extremely stiff. Tight around the chest and armpits, loose around the belly and waist.

July 8, 2021

Just... perfect

Absolutely love the thing. So awesome.

Amazingly waterproof

My partner and I purchased a pair of these for our trip to Iceland and they're amazing! Stylish and really worth it's price. We've walked through rainy days and many waterfalls and came out water free

Nice Jacket

I received the Patagonia Men's Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket as a gift from my son. I guess he grew tired of hearing me complain about my previous rain jacket. I really like the fit of the Patagonia. It's light weight, breatheable and does a great job of keeping me dry.

July 5, 2021

Waterproofness lost again

I have nothing to complain against the cut, fit and size of the jacket. It fits amazing with a t-shirt or hoodie underneath. BUT, after completely loosing waterproofness in my 2.5L Torentshell jacket WITHOUT EVEN washing it I had it replaced with a 3L version and after the first wash (without even using softener) I completely lost waterproofness ag... Read Moreain. I had it treated with Storm Proof solution as per Patagonia's recommendations and it still not repelling water like in the beginning. When it first happened I thought I was unlucky and got a jacket with defects but rafter happening again I'm a bit skeptical about this brand.

Hi Catalin, we're so sorry to hear that the Men's Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket keeps soaking through. Every jacket has a maximum limit on how much moisture can pass through. When doing strenuous activity moisture can build up and soak through the layers being worn underneath your shell. It's important to remember to layer accordingly and this could possibly be what's happening. Nevertheless, it sounds like your disappointed with your gear and we never want you to feel stuck with an item that you're not confident in. Please feel free to begin a return or exchange under our Ironclad Guarantee,

Great Rain Jacket

Great jacket for the price. All the features of the more expensive jackets at a reasonable price. Three layer. Not sticky. Pit zips. Two way adjustable hood. Velcro cuffs. Pockets. Thanks Patagonia.

June 29, 2021

Great Jacket

This is a lightweight, durable, and simple rain jacket. Love the added bonus of it being a good windbreaker, having pit zips and a packable pocket.

June 29, 2021

Clean classic styling, great quality

I bought the Torrentshell for travel, light and easy to pack. I use it for everyday work, errands and walking.

June 29, 2021

Great coat

Although I have had this for a short time, I love the fit, it works great in the rain and the color is awesome. Very pleased with the product, which is not a surprise as I have been a Patagonia customer from the beginning and still have and use the products I own.

June 28, 2021

Extra dry

The Torrent Shell is excellent for the pop up thunderstorms we experience in my local area

June 22, 2021

Very water

I bought this for Iceland, but I have used it the most during the rainy season here in Tampa. It works like a charm. Quick flick of the wrist and the water shakes off. Dry as can be

Rain Jacket

This is a great product. It would be even better with a third pocket.

Frustrated Patagonia keeps changing the size of their apparel

I bought the medium of this jacket and it runs way too large. I returned it. I bought the exact same rain jacket in the same size about a year and a half ago that runs much smaller and fits great. Why would Patagonia change the sizes? I won't be buying patagonia online anymore without trying on the apparel.

Nice Rain Coat

I needed to replace my older Supercell rain jacket with something newer and breathable. I havent had to use it yet but I do like the features except for the put zips and visor. In the past Patagonia had the longest pit zips for dumping heat but the ones on this jacket are small in comparison. Im still glad they are there though. The visor seems sho... Read Morert and doesnt cover my forehead as well as I would like in a downpour. Overall Im always happy with Patagonia gear and it lasts forever and I still have most of my gear from the past 25 years. I love the guarantee and customer service is always top shelf!!! Thanks

June 14, 2021

Really big

I purchased this because of a review I had read. I was not aware the fit would end up being larger than I anticipated. It was really large. I ask to return it and customer service was very pleasant and quick. I returned to the post office 5 days ago and it appears to still be sitting there. I look forward to getting a size down to really test it.

June 14, 2021


Definitely rain repellent! Zipper seems oriented for a left handed person. Big test will be this coming winter.

June 13, 2021

Repels water- doesn't sweat.

A super product. Repels water like a duck's arse. Very prompt. A very good company.

June 13, 2021

Needs a breast pocket

Love the jacket. It would be nice to have an inner breast pocket for a wallet. I wouldnt call it a criticism

June 13, 2021

Great Coat

This is a great waterproof Rain jacket. It is now my go to coat for casual, walking, hiking and traveling.

June 13, 2021

Would love it in tall sizes

Good rain jacket. Seems fine. However, Im long waisted. Wish it came in tall sizes. If it did, Id buy another!

June 12, 2021

Truly waterproof

Fits me like a glove and truly waterproof and very sturdy but light and packs easily. Bought it after I read the article on CNN where it was rated #1. Couldn't be happier. Love this company.

June 9, 2021

I love this jacket, dependable and durable

I've had two of these jackets. The first one I had for a year working a lot of outdoor events in the rain, and it never lost its water proofing. Then I lost it on a trip, so I bought a second one because the first one worked so well. This jacket is a bit of a staple in my life now.

May 29, 2021

Well Built

Was looking for a well built rain jacket and this is that jacket. I have never been let down by Patagonia.

May 29, 2021

Best Ever!

I bought this as my current rain jacket was losing its &quot;coating.&quot; This jacket is simply THE BEST rain jacket I have ever worn - completely breathable and super lightweight. I wear this hiking in Colorado where it is alternately hot then cold. I don&#x27;t get too excited about clothing but this jacket is the best waterproof purchase I hav...

Very nice and lightweight

Too small

Several online reviewers have rated the Torrentshell as 2021&#x27;s best rain jacket for men. An inspection of the jacket would confirm that it is exceptionally well made and probably protects the wearer from wind and rain. However, the XXL is too small. I am a muscular 6-5 and a former collegiate athlete. Patagonia started making some of its appar... Read Moreel in 3XL a few years ago, and those items fit me. Patagonia needs to make the Torrentshell in 3XL. Currently, only the Hose Down Slicker is available in 3XL, but that item is for commercial fisherman or other industrial applications. It would be absurd to wear it on the street. There are a lot of us larger men who require bigger gear. Please help us out.

Finest quality product by Patagonia.

Wont make you sweat while wearing it

I love that this rain jacket isnt like a heat trap. Ive worn it in the rain recently and I dont feel like Im burning up while walking and Ive actually been dry the whole time wearing it. I definitely recommend this jacket!

So comfy

I love this jacket great quality and comfy.

Florida rainstorms

Im 510 195 athletic/muscular build and I ordered a size lg. I have many other Patagonia jackets and tops so I know thats my size. I will say, fit is long in the arms for just casual wear. Perfect length if moving around (climbing, fishing, etc) and not having the sleeves fife too far up your arm. It is a little loose on the rest of my body EXCEPT f... Read Moreor armpit area. I could probably wear a medium all over but NO WAY in the armpit. It would be uncomfortably tight. Large is perfectly suitable. Waterproof ability if this jacket is fantastic. Im in coastal Florida and the skies open up and can drop inches of rain in no time at all unexpectedly. This jacket packs small is a huge help to stay dry in those conditions. Another great Patagonia purchase

Good Shell

Thinner Shell than anticipated; overall, great seams and quality fabric.

Packable outer layer for layering and rain resistant

This item was a replacement for an item purchased about 10 years ago. I couldn't believe that the iron clad warranty gave me a replacement. The replacement jacket is great as a light weight outer layer, either alone for mild weather and with additional layers for colder weather.

May 13, 2021


I tried on the size medium in a store, and it was on the tight size. I ordered this, as the store did not have a large size. The arms are very long. This is a replacement for the Patagonia Storm Jacket, and it seems far inferior.

May 11, 2021

It is an improvement over my old Torrentshell

Purchased this to replace my old Torrentshell which had begun delaminating. The tricot is more comfortable against the skin and feels drier. The center zipper without an outer storm flap is a little harder to get started; well see how well the new design keeps out water. Dual-zipper pit zips are nice and the Velcro cuffs cinch down well. The hood s... Read Moreeems a little larger but adjusts as well as the old Torrentshell. Overall, the jacket seems a little larger but thats ok for layering fleece when its colder. The improved liner material makes this a winner.
