Simply the best
Ive owned a lot of shells in my life. I still have many of them, but the Patagonia Torrentshell became my instant favorite. The day it arrived I layered it over some mid weight capilene,a retro-x vest. I went sledding with my daughter with 20 mph winds and wet snow. I loved how easy it was to adjust the hood with gloved hands and the underarm vents... Read More were easy to access. It kept me warm and dry without the bulk!
i walk inside and outside all the time for work and i only ever had water resistant jackets (i live near seattle rain doesnt bother me) but i decided to finally buy something water proof and this jacket doesnt disappoint. It started getting really hot walking back and forth between the heated inside and cold outside but unzipping the armpit zippers... Read More really helped and sometimes i would take it off if i was inside for awhile but it definitely helps when its raining! we recently had flooding problems because of the days of nonstop downpour and this jacket really pulled through! Definitely recommend.
Wish it was a little boxier.
I love, the construction and so far the DWR is amazing. The fabric is a little crinkly. All in I have not wet out. The arms are tight at the shoulder and forearm. I have also noticed when I curl both seems there is a tight band of fabric al the way across my shoulders.
An outstanding rain jacket and windbreaker. I walked at toddler speed (with my 3 year old) through a downpour and rain storm. Not an inch of my top was wet when I removed the jacket. The billed hood is a great plus. Overall the look is spot on. As the details say, Simple and unpretentious. But does its job incredible well.
Almost perfect, except for the one handed "zip"!
This is the second rain jacket I've owned from Patagonia. The first had a delamination issue of some kind and my local store in Ventura absolutely took care of me. My only gripe, and this was true of the earlier model I had as well, was that the zipper constantly snags on the inside fabric. I get about to where my chin is and I'm stopped.... Read More Many times when trying to unzip it gets caught just by my chin. I don't know if this is just the zipper not able to make the curve up top or what, but it's SO frustrating. This is especially true when I have my hands full and I'm trying to do a"one-handed zip". Just wanted to give my feedback and I fought with the zipper again today! ;)
We're sorry to hear about the fabric interfering with the zipper. Please reach out to the [store](https://www.patagonia.com/store-locator/) for assistance with a repair or return on your jacket. Thanks for taking the time to submit a detailed and thoughtful review, Matt!
H2oh look I'm wet again
Fine for fog. Any rain sustained longer than 10 minutes and water soaks through fabric to clothes underneath. Not waterproof.

A Great Shell That Keeps You Dry
I ordered the Mango color and love it! The pit zips are nice to help you regulate temperature and the draw string hem makes i nice and snug around the hips to retain heat and block the wind.

Good rain coat
Just recently moved to New England and realized I didnt own something that was actually waterproof. Its a good jacket, but it does have some faults (for me at least).

Read Moreke I have two wallets underneath my arms. Not too noticeable when you have something thick underneath the jacket, but definitely annoying sometimes.
Not quite windproof
I bought this to replace a pullover version of approximately the same material that I bought from Patagonia over 10 years ago. It has served me very well but I've "outgrown" it. The new jacket seems lighter. I believe it is also of a less tight weave because it doesn't provide the winter wind protection I've had and that I ... Read Morehad hoped for. One thing that it does provide enough of is mobility and that is VERY important to me. A heavier material is easy to come by but I need the freedom of movement that this jacket provides. Haven't tested it in a downpour. There's always next year.
Thanks for your feedback, Bob! In Spring 2020, we released a revised Torrentshell design with improved durability, better water-repellency, and slightly heavier fabric weight. With great [product care](https://www.patagonia.com/repairs/#product-care) and storage, this jacket should easily last a decade or more. Please reach out to our Customer Service team if you have any questions!
Great Rain Jacket
I love the jacket and it has proven to be water resistant. Moreover, it is light and can easily packed when needed. The Large size fits well and leaves some room in case I need to wear a warm sweater underneath. So far, I dont have any complaints or suggestions for improvement.
Out of proportion
Jacket runs small through chest for any under-layering and sleeves are ridiculously too long. Not sure who or what was used for the size model.
Hello Charles, we are sorry the sizing did not work out on the jacket. You are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it. For reference, we can provide garment measurements if any sizing comparisons are needed.

At 6 and about 168lbs, I can comfortably fit the Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket underneath and still have plenty of freedom and movement.

Great rain jacket let down by the details
I was really looking forward to trying a quality rain jacket from Patagonia after my Marmot Gore-tex gave up after 8 years of daily bicycle commutes through every weather pattern. Right off the bat, the jacket doesn't feel comfortable to the touch. It's very stiff and noisy. The lack of waterproof zippers is a big let down as was the non-...

Hi Filippo, we're sorry to hear that the Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket didn't meet your needs. Try checking out the Men's Triolet Jacket, https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-triolet-alpine-jacket/83402.html?dwvar_83402_color=BLK&cgid=root. It features a 3-layer GORE-TEX fabric and has two roomier pockets on the chest. It might be just what you're looking for!
Needs to be re-designed
I bought this because it was so highly reviewed.... it looks like it will fulfill its function, but there are a couple of particular details that need to be re-designed: 1) I'm surprised at how tight the shoulders are: When I put it on, my arms have to go WAY back to go into the sleeves. 2) The hood is too tight: The brim doesn't have roo...

Rugged and waterproof rain jacket
I purchased another brand with a softer shell and after 4 years the coating in the hood was worn out. I decided to go with Patagonia because of the XS size. The sleeve and jacket length fit me well. The only area that could use a bit more room is the under arm area. I am 5 2 with broad frame.
Fabric needs work
Fabric is stiff, boardy and makes too much noise. Patagonia needs to use a finishing plant with more expertise. Unsuitable!
We're sorry to hear that this jacket has been a disappointment. We do offer many other [rain jackets](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-waterproof-rain-jackets-vests) and would be happy to help you with an return. Thanks for the feedback, Scott!
Made walking in the rain enjoyable
I never liked being outside during the rain, but while wearing this my wife and I walked around downtown during the rain for about an hour with no issues! I haven't had it long enough to see how it holds up after a few washes but as a new jacket, the water proofing is amazing and it's super light and compact
Love it so far
Just want to comment on fit. 62long arms, 195 pounds after Covid :(. M fit looked the best and feels great, but if you were trying to layer anything more than a sweater of fleece it might be tight. I had assumed Id be a L but M feels much better for a warm warm weather hiking jacket.
Great except the hood
The hood falls down so far over my face it covers my entire nose, making for zero visibility. I have to fold the edge of the hood up, which is annoying. I wouldn't mind folding the hood if it was designed to do so. It needs design work to allow adjusting it to cover the head without covering the eyes.
Hi Charles, we appreciate your feedback! The M's Torrentshell 3L Jacket will have a two-way adjustable hood to provide a more customized fit. However, if you are still finding the hood is not working for you, please know you are always welcome to initiate a [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) under our Ironclad Guarantee.
Great for the rain. I also bought the Torrentshell pants to go along with it. I wanted something lighter than my shell jacket for skiing and this fit the bill.

I traded in a 10-year-old version of this jacket which ceased to fend off the rain even with a double application of DWR. I have put the new one through two downpours with no leakage. Plus it's more comfortable and better looking. Additionally, the old one had a lot of velcro which caused the arms to tangle with other parts. No more.
Fits well as a casual wear raincoat
The sizing is correct and the features are appropriate to the use. I wish that it had a chest pocket for a phone and was slightly lighter weight.

Just got this upgrade over my 10 year-old version. It wouldn't take waterproofing anymore, so Patagonia took it back in trade. Although I haven't tested the new one for water, I can tell the 3L is a huge upgrade and I have high expectations. And it's made out of old fish nets. Wow. That's a big deal.

Warm, Good Water Resistance, Doesn't fit my build
