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 PatagoniaDecember 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!
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.

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.
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.

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.

Thank you.
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.

Also zipping up the bottom zipper makes coat more comfortable when sitting.
Response from PatagoniaOctober 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](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-dual-aspect-jacket/85390.html?dwvar_85390_color=WAVB&cgid=womens-jackets-vests).
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!!!!

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.
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!
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.
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!

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.

Response from PatagoniaAugust 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](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
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.
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.
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 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.

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 haven't actually used this raincoat yet but will very soon during Spring rains in Missouri and when I'm trout fishing in the rain.

Yes, the sleeves are a couple of inches too long for me, but the velcro at the ends is convenient and I don't mind rolling the sleeves up a little bit.

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.

Great waterproof shell
I completely wore out my old torretshell from years of wear and Patagonia gave me a brand new one for just the $20 difference in price. I am a happy camper. I love the kelp pattern and color.

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. I allotted for the few lbs I put on this year, but still- its too small to zip. I assume the extra large would have me swimming in the sleeves due to being too long. Feels like Patagonia clothes a...

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.
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.
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.
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!
Waterproof but very narrow body cut
I bought this very expensive jacket after reading an article comparing the effectiveness of various brands of rainwear.

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.
