Super warm, windproof, and keeps me very dry so far.
Customer service was phenomenal, always nice when you get to talk to someone in person and in a timley matter, and they take their time to assess your needs and to find solutions. They really thrive to make you happy and stand by the quality if their products. Very very happy with Patagonia, especially living in Crescent City, Redwood Country, a ra... Read Moreinforest place where the sun is rare and where it's always stormy with fierce winds from thr mighty Pacific. So far, this jacket has held up.
Great technical jacket
Great product. I am 6 feet 2 inches, 178lbs and it fits close. This is a 3 season jacket for me in NC, prob could not layer a sweater or much else underneath. Great for hiking/running - lightweight without bulk in wrong places, zips up high to keep out the wind.
Got is 50%off on sale
Apparently the orange color isnt the new black in this rain/wind jacket. I got the size and color I needed. I want to be visible while riding my bike or hiking. This color definitely is visible. The material works great keeping the rain and wind off I highly recommend this jacket if you find it on sale.
Works, fits good
I typically need a LT or XL, but the large fits great. One problem I do have is I have skinny arms/wrists. So there is not enough Velcro on the wrist closures for me to close the wrists up snug. I wish the hood was either detachable or could be stored out of use, however with the long neck of this jacket, it isn't that great for using without ... Read Morethe hood on. I bought this for when I have to work out in the heavy rain and it seems to work pretty good, although I've only gotten to use it once so far. Fabric is pretty comfortable and not too hot.
Its a beautiful high quality
Its a beautiful high quality rain jacket/shell. Im 6/0 155, and due to my height usually wear a large in shirts and tees, I kinda prefer loose fit however large was too big so went with medium. This works well when wearing technical layers underneath, not so much with a hoodie :)
Not Just a Rain Jacket
Perfect rain jacket as well as all around top layer. Used it a couple of times in moderate to heavy rain and stayed bone dry without overheating (a problem with other rainwear). Not just for rain, works well as a windbreaker too. I normally get a large in Patagonia, but chose XL this time so I could layer with down or nano puff underneath in colder... Read More conditions. Worked out great, not to restrictive with layers and not to loose when worn alone. I predict this will be my go to jacket for years to come.
I replaced my Arcteryx hardshell with this and the build, waterproof is great however im between sizes at 5'9" 185 . I wish there was a M athletic or a L short option with patagonia (pants to) so I could get coats & pants that fit.

In the meantime, please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this jacket at any time as your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
5'9" tall and 180 pounds, a size large jacket leaves me plenty of room to layer a fleece or sweater underneath for cold weather. This Patagonia size large is slightly more roomy than the Marmot size large jacket it replaced. Only wish would be for this Patagonia fabric to be a little less noisy and for a hood that folds into a collar. Ov... Read Moreerall excellent product.
Light and Tough
I've had Patagonia rain jackets for 25yrs. I decided to get this for travel-perfect, rolls up small. The fit is so nice though that I use it for biking, scooter to work, walking in rain etc. Just super happy with it. Got the orange color on sale, and now I love the color, wasn't sure initially. Good for visibility.
Very well made and keeps me dry.
Like most of my Patagonia gear this jacket is very well made and keeps me dryer than most jackets I have had from lesser expensive companies. I really like the zippers, big pockets and vents. I ordered a XL so I would have room for under layers, for a truer if I wasnt planning on layering a Large would fit me at 6 foot and 195lbs.
Great PNW Jacket
This jacket is great for the weather we get up here in the Pacific Northwest. The collar goes high and hood is large enough to fit a helmet or cinch it up for a better fit. The material is very swooshy soundy which makes it very waterproof. Pit zips are great. I am 5 ft 4 in 130 lbs and the XS fits me very well.
Comfy & does what it should, mostly
It sits well and has room for layering. Its sleeves are a good length without being stupid-long. Sizing worked well for me. The helmet capacity was no problem in terms of cinching it down to wear without, although not big enough to fit a bike helmet (maybe that's an unrealistic goal). When cinched in to the head, vision's not badly restri... Read Morected. The hood and collar area sit pretty flat when not in use. So far, it's kept moderate rain off and worked fine in a shower test, but I was disappointed that, from the start, water doesn't bead off as it's supposed to across the whole jacket. Particularly on the chest & shoulders, water soaks into the outer layer. It doesn't get through the inner layer, but given the jacket is new, I'd expected better water-shedding from the description. So far, I've found H2No never quite works as it should. That said, taking on that bit of extra weight for a 3-layer rather than 2-layer fabric is absolutely worth it for keeping the rain out. I haven't found the jacket particularly noisy to wear, and it's not as stiff as some others.
This rain jacket was a replacement for one that I had previously owned. The lining in the hood was flaking and I went into the store to replace it. Since I was wearing the old one and the employee was able to see the lining flaking, It was replaced with no questions asked. I was so impressed with the ease of the warranty replacement and the way tha... Read Moret Patagonia stood behind their product, that I left the store and immediately began telling people about how impressed that I was with this policy. I have owned many Patagonia products in the past, but I have never had to use a warranty claim. I am even more committed to a brand now that stands behind its products.
Good quality shell
Great jacket. Highly recommend. Feels much more premium compared to the Torrentshell. Good fit. Relatively roomy. Possible to fit some layers under or a puffy jacket. Just what I needed. Would rate this as 4.5/5 stars. Only small areas of improvement I find would be a little more sturdy front of the hood (otherwise great fitting hood) and a small p...

Not sure it's worth the extra cost.
Don't get me wrong, this jacket is great. But it's significantly more than the Torrentshell 3L, you really have to be committed to helping the environment. From what I can tell, and from what I was told by a Patagonia expert, the only difference between this and the Torrentshell 3L, is the Granite Crest jacket is made with NetPlus®, which... Read More is Patagonia's 100% post-consumer recycled nylon ripstop made from recycled fishing nets. I love the fact that Patagonia is 100% committed to saving our planet, but the cost for this jacket is a little prohibitive. The fit is great; it's completely waterproof, and the hood will easily cover a helmet. The arm vents are great for a little extra breathability, and overall, it's a great jacket. I just wish it wasn't so pricey.
Hardy and Comfortable
Had some help from the Boulder store replacing a failed Stretch Rainshadow (thank you Patagonia!). I've had this shell now for almost 2 months and it is simply amazing. Rain, sleet, hail, snow and wind ripped ridges are no match so it does its main job well. What I really like is that it is a tough 3 layer but yet found a way to balance some s... Read Moreoftness making it comfortable to wear all day. I find I don't need to take it off which is really saying something for an alpine shell. It's got great lines and works as well running errands as on the trail. But I've found it's so nice and tough it's become my go to for everything except actual alpine skiing. On top of that, saw some fishing nets tangled in trees in AK and all I could think was how much this company is doing to help with products like this. Great shell, just get this.
