Great rain protection
January 14, 2012
I purchased the Women's Torrentshell Jacket in fuscia. The color is great and it is fun to wear. I wear it running and find that it is both protective from the rain and the wind. The hood stayed in place and I like the little brim which helps keep the rain out of my eyes. The length is right at my hips which is just right and the sleeves are adjustable and are also the right length. The medium size fit works for me, but if you are wear a normal size greater than an 8, I suggest trying the next size. Overall, an excellent purchase.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
October 16, 2011
This was the best fitting shell out of the other name brands I tried. It's a normal fit, not to fitted, not too baggy. Hits at the hip. It's light-weight and compressible so I always carry this in my pack. I put this on top of my fleece when I summitted Baldy and it really helped with the windchill. I find the wrist adjusters hard to use.Pros: Build quality, Performance
Fantastic rain coat
July 23, 2011
Excellent rain coat for hiking, biking, and beach walks. Very water and wind-proof. Zipper and velcro fasteners are easy to use. Hood is compact, but flips up easily and fits nicely. Great product.Pros: Great design, Build quality
March 25, 2011
I really liked the Acai Coat but I ordered a Large and it was a little too big for me. But now they are out of the Acai in a medium so I am going to order a diff color. But very good coat.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value, good color variety

Product exceeded my expectations. Nothing better than having a dependable rain jacket.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Great rain jacket
March 24, 2011
I got this to replace an old north face rain jacket that is no longer waterproof. I am not crazy about the color (storm) but plan on exchanging for a brighter color. It fits a little big (can fit a fleece underneath) but seems like it will hold up well in the rain.

Good jacket for rainy conditions. Keeps my wife dry on her commute, but for hurricane conditions probably not quite enoughPros: Build quality, Great value
Well made rain jacket
August 19, 2011
I researched and tried on a fair number of jackets before deciding on this one and I think I made the right choice. I was amazed at the quality and details of this jacket. It seems like they thought of everything from the hood that stores and also tightens when need in foul weather to the pit zips for those longer hikes. Love the colors and it has a nice flattering fit.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
November 23, 2010
Many jackets are too much. This shell layers well with Guide Jacket underneath for skiing. Also great for rain jacket by itself.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
this is an awesome coat
July 16, 2011
Patagonia really thinks of everything. This jacket is so light weight, but it does the trick. The jacket gives enough room to wear a fleece underneath if it is cooler and it is light enough for a summer rain. I got the light green color and it was a bit brighter than I expected, but besides that everything is great.Pros: Great design
September 06, 2011
The Patagonia Torrentshell jacket is exactly what I need when packing for our summit-hiking adventures. I love the fact that it is seam-sealed (very important if you want to stay dry) as well as the micro-fleece lined neck--so soft! I find it offers more face protection in the biting wind than other rain jackets I have used. I am 5'10" with long limbs and the Medium-size is a perfect torso length and sleeve length. Roomy enough to fit a fleece under when it gets cold. I hope to have this jacket for years...I don't think I'll be disappointed.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
September 19, 2011
I originally purchased this as a bit of luxury for myself to wear while hiking but now that I own it, I realize that it really is an essential for anyone's wardrobe regardless of how many outdoor activities you do--I find myself wearing it all the time. It incredibly comfortable, lightweight & very waterproof! Great buy!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Gem of a jacket
October 14, 2011
Canoeing on the Willamette in October is just asking to get soaked. I was kept insanely dry and warm during my 2 hour excursion with a group of 6th graders, who provided more water in the canoe due to their paddling skills (or lack there of!) then Mother Nature actually provided. The Torrentshell jacket runs true to size, the sleeves are a bit longer, but not worth the complaint of a bad review. Teamed up with the R3 Hi-Loft Hoody (shameless plug!) you can't go wrong for anything Fall/Winter (and Spring in Oregon) throws at you! Highly recommended.
Great Jacket from Patagonia!
April 15, 2011
I was really happy with my jacket. It was a little longer in the back than I expected but I am fine with that. I am 5'6 so I ordered a small which is a perfect fit. It is big enough for me to layer if I need to. The service at Altrec was great! I received my order very quickly.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
I was the only one dry
March 02, 2012
I truly love this jacket. I just spent the entire day hiking in the rain with 30 mph winds and I was the only dry one in our eight person group. This jacket also breathes well and never feels hot or sticky. worth the extra $. Highly recommend!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
March 30, 2013
I know a lot of people like this product. And the jacket is not bad. I have used it in rain and light rain. While it works, I would recommend a different product. The jacket does not breathe, and feels very clamy. There are other brands that have lighter-weight jackets and offer more breathability. The jacket feels a bit stiff. I feel as if technology is developed to the point where rain jackets can offer more flexibility of fabric than this one. I am 5'3" and 125lbs and where an XS.Cons: Low performance
September 06, 2011
pategonia knows how to make a jacket. They also know style. This jacket is perfect, from the cut to color (I got the rhubarb). I wore it while in the cool and breezy Mendocino headlands. It sure made hiking much more comfortable. I highly recommend this jacket for all outdoor activities, rain or shine.
great! heavy duty!
September 22, 2011
this jacket is great! i wore it out and about on long island during hurricane irene and had no problems! it's lightweight and compact- great for travel (just dont crumple it up and stuff it in its own pocket- it gets realllly wrinkled!). and it seems to be very durable, i think that it will last a long time. i got a size medium so i could wear a hoody underneath, and its the perfect fit-im 5'4" and 140lbs. sleeves are a bit long, but id rather my hands be covered than it be too short! great jacket, the yellow is awesome, like a real rain slicker! i reccommend this product!Pros: Performance
September 13, 2011
Patagonia jackets last forever. This one is lightweight and very packable. Looks good and you can wear it anywhere. It could use a two way zipper for better movement.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Cons: needs 2 way zipper

good protection for the price
February 02, 2012
This jacket comes in fun colors, is lightweight, packs easily, and offers great protection against the elements for the price. The cut is a bit big and boxy, so while there is room to layer, it's not the most flattering jacket in my closet. Order a size down if you're on the fence. It offers good decent protection from wind and rain, but it's not water tight in a torrential downpour. It's a good jacket for the price.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value

Big fan of Patagonia and with ever new purchase I become even more convinced of their dedication to quality. This jacket is great, comes in a wide selection of colors. Owned this now for close to six months and it been through it all. Holds up to all the elements...wind/rain coat that is very comfortable and breathable, absolutely worth every penny.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
Bought this for my daughter
February 01, 2011
This is the second raincoat I've bought - they are awesome and very durable, comfortable and super nice looking. I bought the blue raincoat for my 16 year old daughter and it is perfect. Fits true to size and the color is very cool - I would recommend this product.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
October 11, 2010
Love this jacket, fits me perfectly. I'm tall (5'10") with long arms and Patagonia jackets seem to give me enough length in the arms and torso. I ordered the Imperial Blue as it seemed to look like a muted blue-purple...but it is definately COBALT blue, which is very nice also...but I'll be exchanging for the black. I'll be taking this jacket to Bolivia in a couple of weeks and I'm sure it will be great layered with a fleece.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
December 16, 2010
This is a wonderful waterproof jacket. Staying true to the quality that Patagonia always produces. The color is fabulous. It will keep me dry for many days to come. I am glad I choose this rain shell. As always, Altrec is SUPER SONIC fast on shipping.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever

Waiting for the Rain!
August 12, 2011
Now all I have to do is pray for rainy days! I love the rain, so this jacket is a must-have and my first real rain coat. It does wonders in protecting against rain and window and works excellent as a shell. Patagonia has done an excellent job with their products, and this great-fitting jacket is no exception!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use
April 10, 2012
Price is consistent with the quality. I purchased a medium (my usual size) felt like I was swimming in it. I also found it to be too noisy when walking. Against bare skin, it felt too rough, felt like I was wearing hard plastic. I never wore it it because it looked aweful on me. I will likely exchange it for a more stylish, probably more expensive jacket.Pros: good value, Cons: Bad design, Poor quality

Bought this jacket after looking at many online. Read the reviews and decided it was the one for me. I wasn't disappointed. Great for travelling. Sleeves were nice and long which is usually a problem for me. True to size....just a little roomy which is perfect for wearing a fleece with it. Ended up buying the fleece as well. I would recommend this to all!Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Ease of use

Another great jacket from Patagonia
August 11, 2011
This jacked not only held up in a sustained rainstorm in the Sierra, it also completely blocked some 50 - 60 mph winds at higher elevation. Needless to say I am very happy with the jacket!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
August 26, 2013
I bought this for my daughter who was looking for a more casual/athletic type rain jacket for college and she loved it! My younger daughter ended up borrowing and loving it too. Now we have 2 of these jackets in our family. I have to admit I have borrowed it a few times myself! It is a great jacket!Pros: Build quality, Performance
Fast shipping! Love the color-light blue!
March 23, 2010
Shipping is excellent, purchased my jacket on 3/18 and received it on 3/22- so 4 days of waiting including the weekend! The jacket runs large so get one size smaller then you would normally wear. The hoodie tucks away, so the jacket is excellent to wear in the rain or just hiking around.
Rain Gear that Works!
August 04, 2011
This jacket fits great (I bought a M in order to layer underneath) and looks wonderful. The colors are beautiful and bright, and the jacket fits in my bag nicely but is heavy-duty enough to do the job..keep out the wind and rain. Once again, Patagonia excels!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Great Deal for Price
February 07, 2012
Great raincoat for rainy, windy and damp days! The quality, insulation and design are wonderful, Would like to get this raincoat in another color! It does fit a little snug under arms, if you are going to wear something bulky like sweatshirt or sweater underneath. I usually wear a size small..I'm 5'6" and 119 lbs. I returned the small and got the medium and love it!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
Simple and compact
August 30, 2013
I wanted a basic waterproof/breathable shell to take with me when I travel but also for carrying around town, on days when the weather is iffy. I've seen high marks for the Torrentshell's durability, and I have various Pata items that have held up for almost two decades, so I have faith in its quality! (But have only owned this one for about a week, so have yet to test the long haul myself.) Otherwise, I like the cut of this jacket -a little longer in the rear, slightly more shaped than similar competitors' jackets. I tried a different brand which was lighter but it was too fitted to wear over a long-sleeved shirt, so I send that one back. I am 5ft, normally wear a 4-6, 34d and the medium is just right for me - enough room to layer, say, a merino hoody underneath, but not too boxy if I'm just wearing a T-shirt. The only thing I would change about this jacket is to have it pack down slightly smaller (it's about 10 x 5" folded casually, or I can scrunch it down into a 7 x 3 cylinder if I have a stuff sack), but I guess that might compromise its weatherproofness or durability. So all things considered, for a "just-in-case" layer, I find this an optimal choice.Pros: Build quality, Ease of use
Light and Dry
October 14, 2011
This raincoat has a flattering cut. It looks good even when you have a sweater under it. The hood adjust well around the face and the stiffened brim keeps rain out of my eyes. It's crinkly sounding when you move around but that is the case with most rain jackets. If you want a raincoat that is light, flattering and keeps you dry, the patagonia torrentshell fits the bill.Pros: Performance

Awesome rain jacket
April 13, 2011
I commute by bike, and this is the perfect rain jacket to use throughout the year (in Northern California, any way). It's basically a simple waterproof shell, which is lightweight enough for warmer seasons, but with a relaxed fit to allow for layering in the winter. There are also side zips for ventilation on longer bike rides or on warmer days. I bought this jacket to replace another that was leaving me soaked through on rainy days, and I have not been disappointed. For one, the fabric really is waterproof. Also, the hood is adjustable from the back center and the front sides -- this means that it really can fit over a helmet or just over your head, yet still provide enough coverage to keep you dry, without slipping off in the wind. There are many thoughtful details in a jacket with such a tastefully simple design (e.g., the side zips, the inner mesh pocket, the drawcord hemline, the visor, the fact that it packs into its own pocket). Such a great buy!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
My wife wants another one
February 14, 2011
I bought this for my wife. She loves it and is looking for another one. Unfortunately Alrec does not have her size anymore. This jacket is so perfect that everybody wants to have two or three with different colors or the same favorite one for the long use or future replacement. Good for outdoor activities and daily use also. Patagonia now also caters people with thrifty mind. This is a good move!Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Women's Torrentshell Jacket
April 02, 2012
Hey, it's Patagonia! Great pocket features and armpit zips for cooling down. Takes the wind and rain like a champ! I now have 3 of these in various colors and wear them on the golf course for a light layer, walking in the evening, and in drizzling or hard rain. Excellent! You can't beat them!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
December 01, 2011
This jacket is exactly as advertised. It's only a shell, so don't expect any warmth inside, but it's the perfect top layer with a fleece underneath. Waterproof, great hood, lots of pockets, sturdy zip and velcro to keep out the rain and the generously long sleeves are kept at bay with smart velcro cuff bands. Patagonia designers just get it, practical, attractive and functional!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
I like that it folds back into a small zipped pocket.
September 03, 2010
Continue to offer purple colored products. I have lots of gear, but always room for another purple item.
great fit, love the color!
August 11, 2010
I found this jacket fit true to size. I ordered my usual XS and it fit great. I can probably still layer a hoodie or fleece underneath without it being TOO snug. I've already received so many compliments on the color, too(Imperial Blue)!
