Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket - Men'sis rated4.5out of5by8.
Rated4out of5byfromExcellent Rain ShellI've been unfortunate enough to need this camping, but I also use it whenever it's raining even when I'm not in the wilderness. I'm not a big fan of carrying umbrellas around so I just chuck this on and go about my day. It's been great at doing exactly what it is meant to do: Keeps me dry Keeps me warm, but not hot Shields the wind Folds up in to its own pocket and stores small What more do you need from a rain shell? Unless you are doing month long expeditions in the rain forest, this is a perfect addition to your backpack.

Rated5out of5byfromLove This JacketThis jacket is super sweet. I picked it up when it was on sale, so it made it even more worth it. My buddy has the same one. It will accompany me on all my hikes from now on.

Rated4out of5byfromQuality protectionI have had my eye on this Jacket for quite some time and finally decided to purchase one to use as a Winter Shell over my Patagonia down sweater. Upon ordering, I decided to get the same size I have in Marmot jackets (PreCip and Mica) which was a medium and being used as a shell for my down jacket. As soon as it arrived, and I tried it on... I immediately noticed this jacket is not really designed to have too many layers underneath. The pits seemed really tight, while there was always plenty of room in my Marmot jackets. So, I had to order a Large just to fit over my down jacket and not feel like I was in a straight jacket. In other words, if you are going to use this in the winter time with layers, get a size up. For the summer time with just a t-shirt on, the jacket is probably fine at your normal size.

Rated5out of5byfromwell-made jacketBought the jacket as a Christmas gift for my adult son as he needed a new shell for wet weather. The jacket fits him well and the golden color is great for visibility (and happens to compliment his red hair). We are anticipating that it will wear well as have other Patagonia clothing we have purchased.

Rated5out of5byfromPrecisely what I was looking forI wanted a very reliable jacket that I could pack away and not worry about until I needed it. This fit the bill perfectly! This jacket has one function, keeping you dry no matter what! Patagonia hit the 'simple is better' mark on this one!

Rated4out of5byfromgood value in a lightweight rainjacketThis is an above average lightweight rain jacket for the money. Completely wind and waterproof, but lacks somewhat in the breathability department. Fits somewhat slim... I'm 6'2, 170 lbs and I have just barely enough room to layer a fleece or down underneath the Medium. I have long arms and the sleeve length is perfect. My only real criticism is the hood fits somewhat awkwardly...I've tried adjusting it and can't get it down. For a sub $100 jacket though, great buy. Exactly what I needed it for.

Rated4out of5byfromGood jacket for the priceI've had this for two years and worn it a number for times for both water and wind protection. Offers great wind protection especially when worn over an insulating layer. Never had an issue getting wet when it's rainy either. Still can't figure out how to work the hood though. I'm 6ft, 200lbs and bought the extra-large to have room under the jacket for fleece jackets. I've even worn my down jacket underneath with plenty of room.

Rated5out of5byfromSo far so good- great qualityI use this raincoat as a wind-breaker (over a sweater or without) and during times it's raining. Living in the city we do a lot of walking and I find this jacket as a perfect way to keep my head and upper torso dry. It blocks wind very well and the under-arm zips allow for breathability during warmer wear. The hood covers your head and neck very well exposing only your face. Jacket is machine washable (do not put in dryer) which allows for easy cleaning. The zippers on the sides are pretty small and appear to be needing some breaking-in time to loosen the zipper itself. I guess this is common with the brand's minimilistic mentality for products. Over-all great rain jacket- I actually look forward to the rain now so I can go outside and stay dry!
