Ws Torrentshell 3L Jacket

True To Size
March 19, 2023

Still Dry in the Heaviest of Storms

Love this jacket so much. There have been so many rain storms lately and this jacket has become my go-to. It is perfect for the random showers because it can be so compact to put in my purse. Super durable and the best purchase ever.

December 11, 2022

Unfortunately had to return

This was a very nice rain coat but I unfortunately had to return it because it was too small for my chest (36D) and my hips (40 in). In the return portal I did not have the option to exchange it for a larger size so I had to return it.

Response from Patagonia
December 15, 2022

We're sorry the sizing was a disappointment, but we appreciate your feedback. The reason the online exchange portal didn't work is due to a style number change in our system. We're so sorry about that and we'll reach out to you by email to further assist you. Thanks for the review, Yvonne!

The jacket is lightweight yet

The jacket is lightweight yet keeps me dry. It is not too boxy yet big enough for a base layer for added warmth.

Torrent shell 3L rain jacket.

The arms are a bit long on me. Great rain gear for northern coastal California.

Great jacket but a little small in the hips

I am extremely happy with the overall quality of this jacket. I wore it hiking around some waterfalls on a rainy day and stayed pleasantly dry. It is clear that I will be able to wear it for many decades to come. The only downside is that Patagonia does not offer Petite sizing, and the hips are just about too tight. Standing it is fine, but sitting... Read More I have to unzip it. I know that going up a size would make it far too big, and it fits well enough that I will keep it. I wish there were better sizing for those of us who are short, but this is a beautiful, well made jacket!

Response from Patagonia
December 6, 2022

Thank you for this review, and for your feedback on the fit of this jacket, Mary. We are working to expand our size offerings, and this kind of input is very helpful in steering these efforts!

The rain shell I need

This is exactly the rain shell that I need - it works when the rain is warm, and allows for me to layer under on the cold rainy days I want to walk my dog, or to a waterfall in Iceland on retreat- or to break the wind that has mist I don't really want to wear. It's the perfect basic and adaptable piece.

November 16, 2022

Great for rain

Great for keeping the rain out. Comfortable at XL, but I normally wear medium. Good pockets. The colour is more purple than fuchsia.

November 13, 2022

Very nice light weight and warm jacket for windy cool days or just cool days.

Rain Walking

I like the raincoat, especially the color, but it is a bit tight across the chest while the arms are long. I wanted to return it, but your policy of making me sign up for a printing service when I have a home printer made me decide to keep it.

Response from Patagonia
November 18, 2022

We appreciate your feedback on the fit and fabric, even though the jacket was disappointing. For returns, you should be able to follow our [online return path]( and print a return label at home or request that the post office print the label for you. We're sorry for any misunderstanding and we'll reach out to you by email to assist. Thanks for the review, Linda!

Happy with rain jacket!

Fit is great. I love that it zips into a small pouch and packs. Attention to detail like side vents and key loop are great.

November 1, 2022

Beautiful raincoat

Love my raincoat. I usually wear a S or M in clothes, but I chose an XL because I wanted to wear it as a rain COAT, not as a short fitted jacket. The small size did not cover my bum or hips from rain or cold, and did not have room for layering. I can now wear my XL with layers underneath in wet winter storms and be warm and dry. The hood fits well ... Read Morewith a tab adjustment at the back to make it fit protectively around my small head. There is some sort of pull tabs inside the seam of the hood (near my face) that I can't figure out how to access or what it is for. I might have to take it back to the store and ask them how to use it! If I can make a suggestion for your next design of this coat: put a pocket or two on the inside for money or phone. Lovely coat. Thank you.

Very nice rain jacket

Would recommend! Very nice jacket. perfect fit!

I like the jacket I

I like the jacket I purchased very much but double zippers that zip both ways from top and bottom should be a must on all your jackets. Im having to contact a local seamstress to replace the zipper to a double zipper. It makes it easier if you can zip down from the top and up from the bottom till they meet to hold the jacket together. Works well if... Read More you get warm or its windy out. Also zipping up the bottom zipper makes coat more comfortable when sitting.

Response from Patagonia
October 26, 2022

Hey Karen, thanks for the review. We'll share your thoughts with our product team. The double zip is something you'll mostly find on our technical gear for belaying, as well as some snow gear. We also put it on our longer parkas. The Torrentshell is our baseline waterproof jacket, so its features are very streamlined. If you're looking for something similar with the two-way zip we recommend the [Women's Dual Aspect Jacket](

Totally love it

Fits well, looks good, keeps rain and wind off my ski

October 20, 2022

Runs very small

I love the color and fabric and the protective hood. It definitely cuts the wind. Haven't worn it in the rain yet. I read reviews that said it runs small. It does!!!! I should have ordered an extra large. This fits fine unless I am adding thick layers, which one does when it's chilly. I am leaving this one at my son's so I don't... Read More have to carry rain gear on the plane. When I buy one at home, I will order one size up from my normal size. The size labels on this jacked should be changed.

Love this rain jacket!

This rain jacket is one of my favorite things that I own! When hiking it keeps me warm when the wind is blowing and dry when it rains. I'll be purchasing this rain jacket as gifts for family members.

October 4, 2022

Great rain jacket

Amazing jacket. Folds up tight. Keeps me dry. Fits well, allows for movement, looks good in any situation except the most formal occasions. Even better than your '08 version that I wore hard. Thanks, Patagonia, for making great stuff!

Im super dry!

Perfect size for me with room for another layer. Its waterproof and a windbreaker too! Loved it!

Well designed, good quality

Good quality and does the job of protecting even during heavy rain. The design is supper functional. Love the environmental aspect too

September 26, 2022

New favorite jacket!

This is seriously the most comfortable jacket! Its obviously meant to be worn as a rain jacket but I wear it rain or shine especially on chilly mornings! Its so warm and cozy! True to size!

September 12, 2022


I could definitely fit a M but I got a large since I use this for work I typically have many layers on under as a farmer. I love it.

September 11, 2022

Super cute

Fit was perfect. I got it in white & its super cute. I like the hood design. Its lightweight, waterproof & very comfortable.

September 10, 2022

Light and waterproof rainjacket

I love this rainjacket. It is extremely light, rain proof, and easy to pack. I love the color and it is also long lasting.

September 9, 2022

Great windbreaker

This jacket fits well and is a great windbreaker. Unfortunately, it is not water repellent . I just walked 6 miles in light rain and was soaked after a couple of miles.

September 8, 2022

This is the best rain

This is the best rain jacket I've ever had, and I do want to point out the size is closer to a standard L than XL, because the L fit more like a medium. That said, good looking, dry, good fit once you get the right size! My sound blue jacket with dark pink zipper and detail is very pretty!

September 7, 2022

Prettiest Torrentshell

Love this jacket, and I'm glad I went beyond my comfort zone and ordered the white! I haven't worn it yet, but the fit seems good-I sized up so that I could layer underneath. I think I'm going to enjoy wearing it.

September 6, 2022

Rain snug!

While I have not worn the raincoat during the rainiest season, so far I love it. The fit is great with the adjustable wrist bands, the underarm vents, and a hood that stays on! I hope that it lasts a long time. Will submit an update after wearing it through the seasons.

September 4, 2022

A great raincoat!

This is my second Patagonia raincoat. I like how it performs well for what it is designed for to keep me dry in the rain. It is comfortable and has a nice weight, too.

August 30, 2022

Great raincoat

I bought this to have as an outer shell rain coat for walking and hiking in the rain. It works great for what I want! The material is stiff, but that's not unexpected with a rain coat.

August 28, 2022

Not for anyone with a shape

I returned this because it was not designed to fit my body. The sleeves were insanely long and the shoulders were really big. Yet I could barely zip it around my hips. I'm very curvy and carry extra weight- this was not the jacket for me!

Response from Patagonia
September 2, 2022

Hi Courtney! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the the fit.

inside coating flakes off after some time

This is the 2nd raincoat I have from Patogonia. First one did exactly the same thing - I returned it and got the 30% off this one. After a while the inside coating flakes off, its like dandruff, on my clothes and rains down when I take the jacket off. I really hope that it is biodegradable, if not I am basically dropping micro plastics every time... Read More I wear it. This is an issue with the jackets that happens with time. Feels like there should be a better solution to this. Especially since we pay a premium for a product that is supposed to be sustainable- this doesn't feel sustainable to me.

Response from Patagonia
August 30, 2022

Hey Steffany, thank you for leaving us this review. Unfortunately, it sounds like your jackets are delaminating. The reason waterproof gear delaminates is because contaminants like dirt, sweat, or oils from skin will slowly start to separate the waterproof laminate from the outer fabric. Sadly, this isn't something that we can repair; however, it is considered a warranty issue. In the future, a good way to prevent this from happening to the next jacket is to wash it more frequently. Depending on how often it's used, we suggest washing at least a couple times per season. Here are some general care instructions for waterproof gear: machine wash warm, do not bleach, tumble dry low, warm iron, do not use fabric softeners. A performance detergent is preferable (Storm Clothing Wash, Nikwax Tech Wash, etc.), but any gentle detergent will do the trick. A post-wash tumble dry on low heat for 20 minutes will help revive the water repellent DWR finish. Eventually, the DWR finish may lose effectiveness and water will no longer bead on the surface of the garment. The DWR can be restored with a performance spray or wash-in treatment such as Storm Eco Proofer or Nikwax. In short, delamination is preventable, it just takes some extra care. If you'd like to submit your current delaminating jacket in for a warranty evaluation, you can begin the process [here](

Bought for granddaughter and the fit and quality of rain jacket were excellent. She love the fit and feel of fabric.

Great jacket but returning

I think this is an updated version of a jacket I had for 15+ years. It's a great, lightweight, waterproof jacket, and I loved my old one for hikes in hot, wet climates (Costa Rica!). I'm returning this as I went with the Calcite jacket for now because I wanted something a slightly heavier that feels more durable.

August 6, 2022

comfortable & stylish

Excellent craftsmanship and color choices. I don't feel like I'm in a plastic suit when wearing Patagonia Women's Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket. I opted for the SMALL after initially purchasing XS which did not leave room for a sweater. Very happy with my purchase.

August 5, 2022

Torrential Protector

I purposely sized up on this jacket, as I wanted to be able to wear two base layers and a nano puff hoody underneath it for a two-week adventure trip to Iceland in July. This Torrentshell held up incredibly in torrential rain and wind. It was perfect for hiking behind Seljalandsfoss waterfall, too. The water just beads off and kept me dry. Ran into...

Good but sleeves are too long

Rain beads off and jacket keeps me dry. Sleeves could be a bit shorter.

May 31, 2022

Love the print!

This is my second torrentshell and purchased this one because of the print! I love these jackets. Not even too bad in the summers, the pit zips make it so it doesn't get too hot, yet you still keep dry.

May 27, 2022

Great fit and great rain protection

This is a beautiful rain jacket which was sent to me very promptly. I got it because my husband has a similar one from Patagonia, purchased by me. The fit and the look are great. I recommend it highly.

Bought a medium so I could layer with other clothing. Can fit a light down jacket under it comfortably but still doesnt look too big. Very happy with this purchase. Have not tried out in any down pours yet but seems very well made.

Excellent jacket for rain both light and heavy.

This is probably the best rain jacket on the market. My partner and I both have torrentshells, and they are true staples here in the PNW.

Perfect rain and wind protection in Patagonia

This is the perfect jacket to protect from rain and wind. I did an eight day backpacking trip in Torres del Paine, Patagonia, and it rained/snowed every single day.

I had had it for several years so it was the older version, and unfortunately the lining started to wear off, so I took it into a store and they exchanged it for a new version.

May 10, 2022

Runs small in the tailored waist

I like the blue color, and the material is sturdy and very rain-proof. It has extra material that fits nicely over the hips and rear end. But it's a little tight on me through the waist and tummy. I'm 5 ft 2 and weigh 130. I kept it because I thought the arms would be way too long on me if I got a large. As is, I can't put any bulky ...

I just received this today and wanted to write a quick note about the sizing since this was a question for me personally.

Great rain shell

Great in rain and really great as a shell over a down puffer jacket When its cold AND raining

Loved it

I really liked that it wasn't too big but also big enough to layer underneath and still be able to bend my arms. It is really hard to fold it so that it fits in its left pocket nicely though.

After 2 years, no longe waterproof/repellent.

This shell was excellent for the first 2 years. After that I followed reccomended suggestions of using a water repellent wash and spray to help it continue being dry on the inside. It has not helped and takes on water anytime I'm in the rain. Such a bummer. Alot of money for a rain shell that lasted two years.

Perfect for Rainy Day Runs

I borrowed my husband's torrentshell for an early, very rainy, windy, morning run. It kept me very dry, and was easy to run in. I saw this one in a store and did not hesitate to purchase. The white is beautiful. 5'7" 120lbs, preferred the medium fit for layering options.

Too small even though its a large :(

I was disappointed again to find that the second jacket I bought from Patagonia this winter is too small, despite that I bought a size larger than usual.

Exactly what I was looking for! Keeps me dry during rainy days!

I love that this coat that I purchased (medium) fit just the way I wanted it to. The length of the sleeve fit better than any other jacket I have ever owned. Im tall for a female (58) and have an athletic build and can never find a jacket that has sleeves long enough! This is my first purchase from Patagonia, however, it wont be my last.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Super comfortable

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.

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.

Its a gift.

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.

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.

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!

Rainy days

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

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.

Nothing special

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

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.

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...

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

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.

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...

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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 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).

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).

Doesnt Wash Well

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.
