Patagonia Torrentshell Pants
February 28, 2013

Loved them first time I wore them. I have ridden my bike in rain, sleet and snow and they have been more than satisfactory. With short legs it is easy to adapt them so they are not too long.

Simple pleasure
December 26, 2013

These are simple and incredibly useful. I slip them over my pants for routine outdoor activities and chores on rainy and snowy days and they keep me dry. They are light in weight and I hang them with my coats so they're always ready to go. Great to have!

Good rainwear
February 15, 2013

The Torrentshell line is an excellent value for the price, especially if you can hit it on sale. The pants run fairly true to size; I am 5'10" and 170 with a true waist of 34 1/2 inches, give or take, and a true inseam of 33". Many years of back country skiing and climbing have put a butt/thighs on me, so I ordered a size large to accommodate that and it was about right. With a layer on underneath, it gives me decent room, and the articulated knees allow plenty of give - don't really want rainwear to be skin-tight anyway. The bottom zips are a nice plus; had I been Patagonia's designers, I'd have brought the drawstring out the front of the pants, and I'll probably modify these that way and with 1/8" elastic cord and cordlock instead of string - the material bunches with it on the inside of the waistband. Other online test sites can fill you in on the particulars of long term use, but in a nutshell I've found this rainwear to be more than adequate for backpacking, summitting, and general backcountry use where economy of weight and performance is key. Were I to need gear for day after day after day of unrelenting rain/snow, then I might opt for a higher end garment. But for average use, this is good stuff. I've put the Torrentshell jacket through some rough weather in the mountains, and it's been a good performer. In the pics I have a pair of expedition weight Terramar bottoms on underneath the pants.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, lightweight, leg zips, Cons: chincy drawstring

Torrentshell pants
February 01, 2012

The paints feel durabel and are heavy and would be great for cold wind, rain and snow...for my purposes of a hike in either hot or cold climates I am looking for something flexible and lightweight that I can pull on over my shorts in a rain or my pants if it is a cold rain. They fit long for a regular and pool at the ankel 5'11'' would recommend the short instead of the regular.

Perfect Pants
April 08, 2011

Pants are comfortable and well made. Once I received the right size they fit wonderful. The weather protection has been great when running in early morning thru dew field grass at the park.
