Patagonia Women's Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket

January 14, 2022

super dry

great lightweight 100% waterproof shell for mountain life!

January 8, 2022

Great quality and warm

Greta quality and warm and I love this dark color

January 7, 2022

Great raincoat

My job allows me to be outdoors in rainy weather, and the Torrentshell can face any rainy day. Pit zips, breatheable, easily-adjustable hood, these all add up to an exceptional and lightweight jacket perfect for the outdoors professional. Highly recommended.

January 4, 2022

Great in the rain

The jacket is very comfortable and easy to carry. I like that the whole jacket can fit into its own pocket and be kept in a bag to grab in case it rains. The built in visor is helpful. It fits snug, which helps keep the rain out, yet it is still very comfortable. If you plan to wear layers then you may want to size up.

Super comfortable and fits great. Lots of compliments when worn!

Super comfortable and fits great. Lord of compliments when worn!

Slim fit at hips

Received jacket and love it, but I usually fall in-between sizes and need verify cut/vet reviews before deciding on size. And yes, I always check the size chart. Thought Id be okay with a small, but too narrow a cut at hips. So while the top fits fine (room for layering); it is too snug at hips to wear for hiking. Will wait for colors to come in an... Read Mored order up a size. Top will be a tad big, but will allow for extra layering.

Good rain coat!

I bought this jacket for my wife after her previous jacket from a different company started to flake and peel. She wore it out in the rain last weekend and said the material is superior quality and the jacket kept her warm and dry in heavy rain. She loves the fit too! She is 5'4" and 125 lbs.

January 2, 2022

Rain Jacket

This was a Christmas gift for my daughter, and she absolutely loves this rain jacket. In the past she's worn a small, but she wanted a bit more room & the medium was perfect!

December 31, 2021

Love it!

Comfortable, room to move, lightweight, great rain protection, looks good on. Bought a second one for my daughter.

December 30, 2021

Keep the rain away

Great new rain jacket that packs pretty well and keeps me dry. The vents are great for warm tropical rains and I look for years of staying warm and dry.

December 29, 2021

perfect raincoat

Construction is great. Hood has a good pitch to keep the rain off your face. Great product.

December 28, 2021

Awesome just buy um

Supah good products, perfect for Hawaii. Mahalo Patagonia

December 27, 2021


We love this coat.

December 19, 2021

Perfect & love the white color

Perfect shell for at home & travel. Packs easy via stuffing into its own LT pocket, so easy in a day pack too. The white color is perfect and different from everyone else.

December 18, 2021

Super comfortable

Hi I love it my torrent jacket I was in the rain and it was all dry awesome.. definitely good material.everything Patagonia makes it just unbelievable awesome.. thank you for all Patagonia

December 14, 2021

THE BEST rainjacket/running jacket/etc. etc. etc.

This jacket is going to get a lot of use...I wear it when I run and need another layer. Walking the dog when it is lightly raining in the Fall and need a layer over a long sleeve; in the early Winter with a fleece; in the Spring as a rain coat. Keeps me dry and looks great. What more could you want? LOVE it.

December 12, 2021

Favorite Travel Jacket

I always always pack this jacket when I travel. You never know what weather you might get and this jacket has saved me a million times. Rainy? Check. Windy? Check. Light jacket? Check. Layer up for frigid temps? Check. Too cold on the plane? Check. Tiny and packable? Check. I'm about to buy 2 more colors.

December 12, 2021

Its a gift.

Its a gift

December 4, 2021


Great all-round rain protection and good for wind. Packs small and light so whether its a warm downpour in to July in Tokyo or November in the Pacific Northwest, the Torrentshell got you covered.

December 2, 2021

Water and wind proof

I was looking for a bulletproof rain jacket and am happy to report I found one. It fits well with a down vest layer or puffy and has been worn in a downpour with no leaking through and in a chilly blow with warmth retained. A great purchase!

November 27, 2021

Love My New Jacket

I ordered the RHP color and love it! The fit is perfect for me. Walked outside with it on and it repelled the rain beautifully.

November 24, 2021


Exactly what I was looking for

November 23, 2021

Rain coat

Big difference in sizes from xl to 2x

November 23, 2021

Rain proof!

Completely, reliably rain proof. I only wish it had a 2-way zipper!

November 22, 2021

Spectacular Jacket

I LOVE this jacket. Its a great rain and wind breaker all by itself or as a super comfy shell over my down parka. Its bright colors make me feel happy and excited whether Im hiking on a trail, shoveling dirt or delivering loaves of French bread. I am beyond happy with this fantastic coat!

November 21, 2021

Rainy days

Great looking jacket for inclement weather. Rain & wind resistant. Havent had much of a chance to wear it.

November 20, 2021

Waterproof but very narrow body cut

I bought this very expensive jacket after reading an article comparing the effectiveness of various brands of rainwear. As a gardener working outside, I am subjected to Cole earth, dew, sprinkler systems, rain and cold temperatures. The jacket is warm and waterproof so far. I've had it a few weeks. The torso is very narrow, and I would prefer ... Read Morea straight side to give airflow and room to manoeuvre. The XL would be better for me. I weigh about 169 pounds, so slightly overweight but the jacket is uncomfortably tight even over a thin t-shirt.

November 20, 2021

Nothing special

It is really nothing special about it For the price i was expecting a better material

November 19, 2021

Fits great but pockets leak through

Overall, I really like my Torrentshell. Fits great, with room to layer underneath. I love the way the hood fits, even with a hoodie underneath. I purchased it a year and a half ago, but only just wore it in a heavy rain in the PNW. My phone and wallet were in my pockets and both ended up soaking wet, which is quite disappointing. Besides that, love... Read More the jacket. I just wish I didn't have to worry about things in my pockets getting wet.

Hi Christina, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We're sorry to hear about your pockets leaking. If they are zipped up and this is still happening, it's possible that this is a warranty issue. Feel free to [reach out]( so we can assist you with sending this in for warranty evaluation.

Biking at night

THis is the third Patagonia jacket I've owned. The first two had the same de-lamination problem--lining in the area around the back of my neck peel off. I thought it was because I didn't wash it often. But the second one had the same problem and it was fairly new. Still, I need a sturdy jacket for biking. I need the bright colors for hig...

Maybe Patagonia will restore the pocket in future versions.

November 17, 2021

Highly Recommend

I originally purchased the Artic White jacket. I'm busty (hourglass figure), so purchased the largest size, as it's often hard to find a rain jacket that zips comfortably. This jacket is so great that I purchased a second (red color blocked). Lots of complements - many asking where they could buy one. Fits an hourglass figure nicely witho... Read Moreut the arms being too long and ends mid hip on me. I walk a lot and have been caught in several downpours. This jacket kept me dry without issue. Zippers under arms are great for ventilation when needed. Comfortable with a few layers underneath. I'm very pleased with this jacket. It's excellently priced, very good quality fabric and sewing. When on it looks like a "sportive / day on the slopes" rain jacket. #love

November 17, 2021

Solid, lightweight rain jacket

The fabric is sturdy, but light. I like the fit and the length is good. I would love more pockets, especially inside.

November 16, 2021

Great Shell

Bought this jacket to summit St Helens, and the trip got canceled. BUT I've been wearing it around town and on short hikes and it's been so great. Very well sealed keeps all the wind out. So far it's kept me super dry, but I haven't taken it through super heavy rain yet. It's kept me warm as an outer layer. The only thing I... Read More wish it had is a little reflective patch on the back for urban environments, but overall I'm very happy with the jacket and I can't wait to use it on more hikes.

November 15, 2021


I have been in need of a decent rain jacket for some time and have not been successful in finding something I like that fits my need and budget. My first was too hot; I cannot wear those rubber slicker types i die in them. I found one that wasn't plastic (or whatever) but it and only repelled water. I finally decided to go with a good brand co... Read Moreat and settled on this jacket. I love it with all the vents, pockets etc. I've only had one occasion to wear it so far and i was very happy. It kept me warm and dry - it was in the low 50's raining and I only had a long sleeved t-shirt on under it and i was very comfortable. My only complaint at all on this jacket is the material is a little stiffer than I'd like and it's very crinkly (almost noisy) - not a fan. But given all the other pluses, this I can live with. Also, I'm hoping with wearing and time it will be less crinkly.

November 15, 2021

looks good, fits well and warm

havent worn it in heavy rain yet - it stayed dry with steady showers.

November 12, 2021

Water repellent

It is definitely water proof and that is what I am looking for when the weather is wet. Feels comfortable without being bulky.

November 11, 2021

Actually rain-proof!!!

I love this raincoat!

November 9, 2021

Appropriately Roomy

I chose the size that fit my chest (45in XL) rather than my waist/hips (35/45in L) according to the fit guide so the fit it a bit large but still comfortable (it does not noticeably nip in at the waist) and has room for another layer underneath. So far it's been completely waterproof and is not too hot. The hood protects my whole face, thumbs ... Read Moreup!

November 9, 2021

Rain Jacket

Fits perfect. I purchased a large so I could be comfortable when layering a fleece or other clothes underneath. Packs small for traveling too. Good quality! I'll have this for years to come.

November 9, 2021

Nice rain jacket

This jacket is great for the fickle weather in the mountains of Western Maryland. I will wear this in the fall ,spring and summer. I can put this on over a long sleeve shirt and a fleece for chilly days and it repells water completely. I'm a sixty year old, with a small frame and I wear size 8 petite pants. I purchased this to wear on the play... Read Moreground when I am outside with my preschool classroom and when I hike in the woods or walk in my neighborhood.

Wind resistant- waterproof

This is super lightweight, yet really blocks the wind and light rain. Havent used in heavy rain yet.

November 2, 2021

Medicane and Cyclone Apollo

My husband and I each bought Torrentshells prior to last weeks trip to Southern Italy and Sicily. Not intentional but we were there for the Medicane and Cyclone Apollo. So much rain! The jackets worked beautifully! I just wish wed also taken rain pants!

November 1, 2021

Covers your butt

I had an older version of this jacket. Fit is more narrow in hip but longer and covers your butt. Have not tried this out in the rain but good for a top layer in fall.

October 31, 2021

Perfect rain coat

Perfect layer for people who want to wear a thin sweater under in winter or just a fall or spring rainy day by itself. This might not be true for a lot of people, but I get hot very easily so it's all I need on most mild winter days (mid-30 degree range) with a couple layers underneath plus hat and gloves. This is my second torrentshell in 15 ... Read Moreyears (I wore the other one thin) and am looking forward to bonding with this one now as my new favorite coat!

October 29, 2021


This coat feels like an upgrade from my older torrentshell and has proved to keep me dry. Pit zips are a plus and a must and so lightweight and packable

Perfect Fall/Spring Rain Gear

This is a great jacket! Stylish , great in the rain, flexible fabric. Plus I love white ! However, I often have a problem with Patagonia fit. I am 5'6", weigh 130 lbs, wear a size 6 in almost every garment from every manufacturer. The medium jacket has sleeves a bit too long and there is too much material in the back shoulders. However, t... Read Morehe small jacket, while a better fit in the shoulders, arms and chest, was too short. Therefore. I bought the medium and I still love it. I can never buy Patagonia pants, almost always too small, although I wear a small in Zella and a 6 in Lululemon. The Patagonia polartec jackets (RN51884,STY25543) and vests I bought last year in a size small are a perfect fit. The best fitting garment I have ever purchased from Patagonia is the 3-in-one coat I purchased last year in a size medium (RN51884, STY28409). I wish Patagonia sizing would be more consistent.

Thanks for the feedback on the fit Jane. We do have differences in our fit from slim fit, to regular, to relaxed. We're always happy to provide garment dimensions prior to purchase.

Had an older version for 15 years Got this new version and still the great quality and fit! Love Patagonia Please bring back the Serenity pants

October 18, 2021

Great in the rain!

I especially like the hood. The bill is long enough to keep rain from getting in my eyes. The rain jacket is comfortable, due to the underarm vents. The velcro at the wrists help to adjust the sleeve length.

October 16, 2021

Dry & comfortable

the white color is great for before sunrise walking, helps cars see me, so far has been great for keeping me dry in an occasional rain storm, underarm vents work like a charm to cool me down. Happy so far!

October 8, 2021

Perfect little shell

This was ordered for city wear and it is nicely appointed and light.

October 7, 2021

Great updated rain jacket

I had a problem with my old rain jacket and Patagonia understood and was completely aware of the problem. They exchanged my jacket without any problems. The updated jacket is an excellent update. I am really happy with my new jacket.

October 2, 2021

Very light, waterproof, stylish.

The first order was lost and Patagonia's excellent customer service had a replacement to me in two days. Thank You!

Bought for Peru. Got SOAKED.

I love most things I have from Patagonia. Bought this jacket for a trip to Peru and found out on the trip how poorly designed it is. The jacket itself isn't very waterproof, it is a bit short imo but the deal breaker; the hood is pointless. The hood doesn't protect your face from rain at all. An extra inch of fabric along the hood would d... Read Moreo wonders to make this jacket more comfortable. Instead, I was pelted in the face all day while visiting Macchu Picchu.

We're so sorry that the hood didn't work for you. If you still happen to have it we'd be happy to help you return it.

Best rain jacket out there

This rain jacket had, best rain jacket to buy, reviews and it is true! Great fit, great hood and keeps you bone dry. Love it!

September 15, 2021

Bring on the rain

This is an amazing rain jacket. Great color! Great fit- and I can wear hoodie or sweater under it. Repels water and looks good! Who could ask for more!

Water proof

Love love this jacket. I do wish the zipper was a dual zip from the bottom so when I bend over etc I would have some better flexibility. Totally recommend otherwise.

Not waterproof

I bought this jacket as a rain jacket to run and bike in. I loved it when I tried it on - it was roomy enough to run in comfortably and fit several layers underneath as it gets colder (I live in Boston). I did not want a tight fit and had been looking for a replacement for my goretex jacket. However, when I wore it to run in a moderate rainstorm I ... Read Morenoticed that it was not repelling water and that my shirt underneath was wet. I was hoping this was a fluke and I tried it again a few days later but same thing - wet underneath and quite uncomfortable. I went back to my old goretex and it was much better despite a rip in the side. I dont know if I can return the jacket now that I have worn it but it is NOT waterproof and I will have to but another rain jacket (going with goretex next time).

September 12, 2021

9 years and still going

I've had this jacket for 9 years, re-waterproofed it multiple times, and most recently sent to patagonia repair to waterproof again (as I couldn't get the waterproofing to work this last time). Works great. First few years I wore it snowboarding, and then I moved and mostly fly fishing, hiking, camping, and traveling (wearing packs and ... Read Moreshoving it into packs). I definitely haven't beat it up like my climbing gear bc I love the color so much, but it still keeps me dry and holds it shape. I'm 5' 6" 110lbs lean athletic build w/ longer torso

Keeps me dry!!!!!

I have to walk quite a ways to my car from the office and this jacket keeps my nice and dry! No hassle holding an umbrella! And can I say I LOVE the hood with the little bill!!!! No wet makeup!!!!! Best purchase!!!!!

September 7, 2021

Perfect for rainy weather

Its hard to find the smallest sizes in outerwear in stores so this was a great find! Plus the vibrant color will be welcome on a gray day

September 3, 2021

super waterproof

I hiked in a constant downpour of rain for 8 miles to a backcountry chalet. I was dry when I arrived

September 3, 2021

Doesnt Wash Well

Bought this jacket in a pinch when I realized I under packed for an endurance cycling event out in the mountains. I instantly fell in love with it. Looked great, kept me warm and dry. I bought the jacket in white. After the ride I had a few dirt spots on it in which I used a very mild stain remover (that Ive safely used on many other items) and was... Read Morehed alone in cold water. When I took it out of the washer, it was COVERED in big blue grease spots. Despite my very best effort, I could not get them out. The wash instructions were minimal and gave no indication on how the material should be cared for. So disappointed with how this product washed up. Im heartbroken as I only wore it once.

Response from Patagonia
September 13, 2021

Hey Rebecca, thanks for the review on the Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket. It sounds like there might have been something in the wash that caused the color transfer. The care on this jacket is relatively simple, please see below. Here are some [stain removal tips]( on our website, scroll down to "More Patagonia Product Care Tips" and find the type of stain that seems to suit what's on your jacket. If you give those instructions a go and find that you're still having issues, feel free to reach out to us so we can go over some other options for you. Care Instructions-- Machine wash warm, do not bleach, tumble dry low, cool iron.

September 2, 2021

Great jacket

I was a little nervous purchasing this jacket in small because I need to wear a mid layer but thankfully the jacket is true to size, and runs bigger than their other tops. I found patagonia tops to run small and usually need to buy medium but this jacket is a great fit in small. Love it.

August 31, 2021


I was super excited for this rain jacket. The jacket keeps you dry and is breathable. I had the jacket for 2 1/2 years. I probably got no more than 10 wears of the jacket and the lining is peeling. I am truly disappointed and expected to wear the jacket for at least 5 years. I do not recommend for the above reason

Response from Patagonia
September 2, 2021

Hi Vercell, we're so sorry to hear about your experience with your Torrentshell lining peeling off. This is called delamination, which can happen from things like sweat, dirt, and different oils from your skin that can start to break down the inner liner of a waterproof jacket. To prevent this in the future, we'd suggest washing and drying the jacket on low heat regularly. Unfortunately, delamination is not something we can repair, however it is something that is covered under our warranty. Please [contact us]( so we can assist with a warranty return.

August 24, 2021

Sturdy, Lightweight, Great Fit

Being 5'1" and quite petite, I have trouble finding rain jackets that don't look super frumpy or too long/wide SOMEWHERE as outdoorwear isn't usually made for people of my stature. To my surprise, this Patagonia jacket fits me exactly how I wanted - and it wasn't even the smallest size! The length of the body + sleeves were... Read More perfect, while still giving me some room to layer on those colder hikes. Best of all, it was thin and light enough to pack into my backpack when I didn't need it. 10/10 all around, worth every penny!

August 22, 2021

Good looking and practical

Good looking and practical and water proof.

August 19, 2021

Stay dry

I purchased this because I was tired of wearing rain jackets and feeling wet and sticky. I can wear this with a tshirt and dont feel that yucky sticky feeling I used to get with other brands of rain jackets. It still is super light and easily packs away in my backpack.

August 11, 2021

A surprise

I never write reviews, however, I recently had a pretty special experience at your Boston store. I happened in to purchase a birthday gift for my husband. I was speaking with one of the staff and mentioned that I was disappointed with my less than 10 year old torrentshell, because it was no longer waterproof in the shoulders or wrists. After a litt... Read Morele friendly back and forth, the staff member said if you bring it back in "we'll take care of you". I laughed and continued shopping and then thought wait . . . it's in the trunk of my car. I retrieved it and they gave me the new torrentshell. It's been a rainy summer here and, of course, it is keeping me dry. It has an extra layer of waterproofing, per the staff, and it definitely feels thicker than my previous coat. Here's hoping this one lasts as long as my 1982 stand up pants. I can't tell you how it made my day - it was such a pleasant and unexpected surprise! Thank you Patagonia! and thank you Boston staff!

August 10, 2021

Perfect Rain Jacket

This rain jacket is perfection. Great, fitted look and keeps me dry. A classic.

August 9, 2021

Good rain jacket

Great jacket that looks good while keeping you warm and dry. I gave it 4 stars only because the zipper gets stuck occasionally. My daughter has the same issue with her jacket.

August 6, 2021

Love my jacket!

As always, Patagonia has an exceptional product. My rain jacket is exactly what I wanted. It repels water, is lightweight, and very pretty. I knew the arms would be a little long. I had to order a large to have it fit in the chest. This is my second Patagonia jacket purchase, and I will never order anywhere else.

August 4, 2021

Super light

I'm very much pleased with this purchase. It is a lightweight coat but so far it has protected me from mild wind & rain. I also like the mint/green color.

August 2, 2021

Attractive but pros and cons

I had high hopes for a well put together waterproof rain jacket since Patagonia is known for good quality products. I live in a very rainy part of Alaska and needed something new that would work for summers here. I wore it yesterday and found some good and not so good things. Some good parts are: it is flattering though a little narrower in the wai... Read Morest than ideal for me. It has nice deep zippered pockets, a nice hood that can be cinched and I love the green color I purchased, soft and almost neutral. Not so good things are: surprisingly no inside or top outside pocket I associate with well designed outdoorsy use jackets. I automatically reached for it but wasnt there assuming wrongly. The armpit zippers look awful when unzipped in terms of puffy, odd appearance added. I needed to unzip these because I was warm in it and was in the 60s. As mentioned by others the sleeves are way too long so I folded them up. So I may or may not keep this. I like it but have felt disappointed. I will see how it does in heavy rain and that might be the decision factor for me.

Rain jacket

Purchased as light jacket that provides rain protection. Perfect!

July 29, 2021

Great Rain Jacket

Great rain jacket, not too hot, keeps me dry and fits well. I did order a size up because I wanted to be able to layer it over a fleece or light jacket.

Keeping me dry

I bought this to keep dry, or as dry as possible when we visit Disney World in Florida.

Great Jacket

The medium fit perfectly, however thought I wanted a little extra room so I could wear my down jacket under (going to Iceland in late September) so went with the large, hard choice though. Both the medium and large the arms are extremely long, I dont understand why- the Velcro closures at the wrists are the saving grace. The jacket is top notch for...

Excellent rain jacket

Cleaning hotel rooms and making very little money, I will spend my entire paycheck on your clothes for my adventurous daughter. To see the sheer excitement on her face when she receives a Patagonia pkg from her momma. Thank you for making well futting and quality products! And, in my daughter's eye...mother of the year!

July 19, 2021

Love this jacket

Love Love Love. My Torrentshell from 2013 started to fall apart and got the new version--it's perfect.

July 12, 2021

Great jacket except for stowing hood

It is a good quality jacket and fits well. But, I prefer to stow the hood when not using it. The jacket does not have the usual compartment secured by velcro to stow the hood. Instead, after rolling up the hood, you have to secure the clip on the back of it to a loop on the inside of the jacket. It is not comfortable and does not store compactly. I...

Great lightweight rain shell

I bought this jacket for backpacking because of its light weight and ratings. So far I love it. I don't feel that it is too crinkly like other reviews. You can tell the quality is good.

July 3, 2021

Easy exchange process

I bought this for my mom, and originally ordered a Medium which was too big and long. The exchange process was so simple and fast, the small fit her very well and she said the jackets perfect for her daily needs and hiking!

June 23, 2021

Perfectly Dry

Well made and comfortable. A tad on the larger side which would be good if you needed a warm layer underneath. The hood is awesome for keeping the rain off. Great jacket.

June 22, 2021

High Ratings...And Now I Know Why!

I've been looking for a practical, packable waterproof rain jacket for a long time, looking ahead to travel this year and next. My husband read somewhere that this Patagonia jacket was top rated, relatively reasonably priced and I was always impressed with the Patagonia name. The jacket fits great, the hood is actually substantial and provides... Read More full coverage - and I love the fact I can stuff it into a pocket for packing/traveling purposes. I anticipate I'll be using it a lot when traveling - or if it's raining where we live.

Fantastic lightweight jacket for humid conditions!

I bought the Patagonia Torrentshell 3L rain jacket last year and it is so good, especially in humid and warm climates! I can layer it easily over a thermal or sweater if it is cooler and it keeps all moisture away. Only detail I'd like this jacket to feature would be a drawstring closure around the neck to prevent rain from slipping in. Hood e...

I used it while exploring Victoria Falls and it kept my iPhone, dslr camera and t-shirt completely dry.

June 19, 2021

Looks Great!

For reference, Im 5 ft 5 in and weigh 147 lbs. The jacket fits really good and true to size but the sleeves are on the longer size. I did need to roll the sleeve up a little but aside from that, spacious enough to wear a sweater underneath and fits really comfortably!

June 16, 2021

Excellent fit!

Love that it fits well. Hood adjustability blocks wind and rain well.

June 15, 2021

Most comfortable jacket I've ever had

I hike as part of my fine art photography outings. Comfort helps keep my mind on esthetics. I wanted something weather resistance, warm but breathable, and that allowed fluid movement. This jacket was a homerun! It just feels right.

June 13, 2021

A wonderful product. Just right.

Great jacket

This jacket fits perfectly and is breathable. I love it!

Torrent rain shell

Fits great!

My go-to light jacket

I love the Torrentshell. Lightweight, fits great, perfect for the rain, wind or chilly day. Easy to pack its a staple when traveling.

Like the jacket but it feels like paper. Whenever you move it makes so much krinkley noise.

May 16, 2021

Great rain coat

I am 5'8, 165 pounds, and the large fits me perfectly. I have pretty long arms and the sleeves are just the right length, keep that in mind when choosing a size. This jacket is very lightweight, perfect for a warm rainy day. I've already worn it in the rain, it was great, hood fits completely over my head, no need for an umbrella!

Purchased as a Mother's Day gift, very satisfied

Gifted to my mother for Mother's Day. It was a funny convenience that it rained that day so she was able to try it on when we stepped out. She loves it!

Great jacket

Love it but would like a looser fit

May 5, 2021

Perfect for rainy days

I am using this jacket for rainy days. It fits well and is perfect for keeping me dry! If it's chilly, I have room to add a fleece underneath. I am usually a medium, but ordered a large. Sleeves are a tad long, but the Velcro straps keep them from hanging over my hands. I am very happy with this jacket and hope to have it for years to come.

Water proof, light weight. Comfort. Style. Color block is perfect. Fit is perfect. Zipper vents at the armpits works well if you get to warm.

Zipper jammed

great jacket....though ran into a problem today. The carbiner loop in the left hand pocket got jammed in the zipper and it was impossible to open the pocket.

Good for all use

Wish it was not so crunchy sounding

April 29, 2021

A nice weight material

Just got my jacket last week and have used it several times in this unpredictable Spring weather. I'm on the chunky side but can eadily wear a thick cotton shirt under it. I plan to get a lot of use from this jacket.

April 25, 2021

Great Rain Jacket

This jacket is GREAT for the spring and summer seasons when you want to stay dry from the rain. Great, durable material. This is my second color!

Perfect for rain and wind cover

Love this jacket. The fabric is a little loud but it keeps me dry and warm against the wind.

The chin cinches have a hidden lock

I wanted to write a review because this may not be obvious to everyone. I had to contact customer service and they had to dive deep to find this answer as well! The cinch cords near the chin can be pulled down but you might notice. they don't stay put. The solution is feel along the hood rim and you will encounter the cinch cord locks. Pinch t...

This would be a 5 star product if it had one pocket on the inside that was pretty watertight, just to keep a car key.

April 15, 2021

All purpose

I ordered small but it was too small zipped up to sit comfortably b the car. I reordered it in medium. Length ok but arms way too long. I still weigh 110 and older Patagonia un size small fit. I still wear many years worth of garments. Wonderful to not wear out. Janet

Great Rain Gear

I prefer purchasing petite-sized/Medium clothing. This rain jacket was not available in Petite. Medium was too small around my hips, so I moved up to a Large. Sleeves were 6" too long.

good layer piece

This jacket definitely repels the rain. However, unless you are doing an outdoor activity to keep you warm or live in a warm climate, I would layer up! I would appreciate a liner in it

April 6, 2021

Lasts a long time

I had a previous version of the Torrentshell that lasted almost 10 years before the inside lining started to peel off. This new jacket has a lining made of fabric and feels thicker, hope it will last just as long!

Great updated fit

I had this jacket in college and needed an upgrade. Its a great fit and length. Perfect for casual wear & exercising. Its lightweight and perfect for a rainy Mississippi spring

April 4, 2021

Well constructed

I had to return my jacket for a size up which was ok since I like to be able to layer as needed. I am usually a medium. The large was still a little snug around the hips but still wearable.

Wind and rain repellant

As a woman, I love how this jacket fits: It's not baggy and feels like it has a custom fit for my body type. It's very durable and does the job of blocking wind and rain and also keeps me warm enough over a sweatshirt in unpredictable Michigan spring weather. I especially like that it was made with recycled materials. The hood and pockets... Read More are very handy, too. I think my previous one finally wore out after 15 years of heavy use. I would recommend this jacket to friends and plan on replacing it when needed with the same thing, which will probably be a long time from now.

Super dry

Love this jacket...perfect for watching outdoor high school sports in Seattle

March 27, 2021

Definitely water proof

I normally wear a size medium or even small, however I went for the large because I figured I could wear a large over layers. Definitely recommend.

Its very true to size. Great quality

Great rain jacket

I purchased this for my wife who says she loves it but wishes the cut was different which is the only reason why she said 4 out of 5 stars. Maybe the mens cut she would like better.

Comfortable for waterproof

Not as rigid and clunky as some waterproof materials. Vibrant colors.

Great jacket as usual from Patagonia

I bought this jacket to be large so I can fit my jacket and down vest underneath. I walk 10 miles a day in the east coast winter and this jacket has kept me dry for the 2 1/2 hours that takes me.

March 10, 2021

Good fit

I still have my old Torrentshell from when they were Unisex size. The new one fits nice, I like the fabric. I havent worn it on a hike yet because we are still Nordic skiing in my neighborhood and havent had rain. The real test will be backpacking out of a lake in the rain for 5 or 6 hours. Ill write another review for you then.

March 8, 2021


I haven't gotten much wear out of my jacket yet, so I cannot speak on performance. However, I have tried on both the medium and large sizes. I am 5'4" and about 150lbs. I first chose to size up from a medium to a large so that I could layer under the jacket for colder weather. However, the large was way too big, even for layering. I ...

Best Rain Jacket!

This is my second Torrentshell, I LOVE everything about it. It keeps me super dry and I dont get hot, the color is so bright and pretty. I highly recommend, especially for people like me who live in rainy areas. Thanks Patagonia!

February 28, 2021

Definitely waterproof!!!!!!!

I love my waterproof rain jacket. It fits perfectly. I have long arms and the arm length is perfect, I weigh 150 and could easily get my Patagonia fleece under my raincoat in cold weather!

February 26, 2021

true to description

Fits well even with a layer underneath. The only negative is that the sleeves are long.

February 26, 2021

Narrow in the hips

A two-way zipper would have made this jacket work for me. The large (Im a size 12) fit, but the hips were very snug, making it awkwardly tight fitting when sitting down. Loved the color and the well fitting hoodI can tell it would keep me dry on those wet dog walks. If youre slim in the hips, this jacket will work.

February 26, 2021

Nice coat but too noisy

I wanted to like this coat and liked most things about it but the very noisy fabric was very distracting when I was out walking in the rain so I returned it.

Response from Patagonia
March 9, 2021

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to write this review and we are sorry you weren't satisfied. In order to create a fabric that is waterproof and up to our H2NO standards, it does end up making some noise when rubbing against itself. With that said, we have passed this feedback along to our Design Team who are constantly working on improving future versions of our gear.

February 25, 2021

Longer than hip length when your 5 tall

Because I am short it came over my hips. It fit fine everywhere but a little snug at the hips. Since it has no insulation I wanted to be able to wear layers underneath. I returned it for a medium.

February 25, 2021

Not completely satisfied with rain jacket

This is the third Torrentshell jacket Ive purchased from Patagonia. If I had been able to try it on in the store, I am not sure I would have purchased it for the following 2 reasons.

Worth every penny...

This jacket is perfect for PNW. I wear it daily, vented so I can layer with synchilla pullovers. I got in XXL just to be able to do this and be comfortable. Yep, you heard me, XXL.

Nice fit, super disappointed

This is a really well designed jacket except for one thing. Women, in my opinion, do not want to be forced to carry purses these days.

Perfect for rainy days!

Great for running

Perfect coat for running in wind, rain, or snow to stay warm and dry. The first coat I have owned that the hood will stay up throughout the run. I where a small but purchased medium to have room for layers. Lightweight and comfortable. Love it!

January 29, 2021


Ive had several versions of this jacket over the years. Some of them had issues with delaminating and Patagonia replaced the jacket with no issues whatsoever. This version seems tougher. I love this company many reasons. One being their customer service. Buy one and you wont regret it.. Aloha

January 23, 2021


There is no way to keep the hood cinched in place. In the blowing wind and rain, I had to hold the draw strings to keep the hood from flying off, not good while you're trying to work. The fit of the jacket is good overall, so I don't understand how this detail is missed.

I absolutely love this jacket! Not only is it super waterproof, but also comfortable enough to wear overtop just a t-shirt or a chunky sweater.

Wonderful jacket, not a fan of the colors

I received this jacket as a birthday gift from my wonderful boyfriend after I spent weeks trying to decide on a color. I ended up asking for the smokey violet color. The jacket arrived VERY fast, which was amazing. I was very happy with how this jacket fit (I am 5'7 and 155lbs with a big booty and the Large was wonderful), but I just could not... Read More get over the color. It's hard to tell in pictures sometimes what the true color of a product is, and I was hoping the smokey violet would be more gray than purple. The reason I am writing a review is not to bash on the quality or fit of this jacket, but to bring attention to the colors offered. Can we please get more earth tones for women??? The Camp Green was a huge hit and sold out everywhere, and I was sad it was no longer an option. But more Tans, Browns, Dark Greens?? The men's version of this jacket has great colors, but I am hesitant to order a men's jacket because I don't want to sacrifice a good fit. Still love you, Patagonia

December 23, 2020


I bought this jacket almost a year ago and have worn it very few times but it is COVERED in small marks and large stains that look like oil. I have tried all the cleaning methods Patagonia recommends and cannot get them out. Love the jacket but I recommend something that won't show stains as obviously.

Shell is perfect for the rain, but...

Patagonia always scores high with the materials they choose. The shell itself is great against the rain. The adjustable hood is also useful. However, I struggle with Patagonia fit. I'm 5'9", 155lbs, 36C chest size and this jacket is too roomy for me. The sleeves are too long and baggy. The length and open is good for my 39-40" ...

Its okay

Its not especially warm and is pretty long in the torso compared to the rest of the coat. I almost expected better quality for the price.

So far, so good.

I walk on rainy Oregon beaches daily. I have gone through a number of raincoats, different brands, and they all stopped being waterproof after a year or two. Im pretty excited about your guarantee.

Great Product

I have an older version of this jacket I got in 2015. It has been to university campuses, beaches, up mountains, down mountains (hiked down a mountain in Borneo in a steady rainforest downpour for 4 hours--jacket was soaked, T shirt underneath was dry!), and to many different countries. It is light, easy to fold, and the perfect soft shell for any ...
