Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't expect to stay dry I bought this in May. I wore it once hiking when I first got it. Since then have tried it on several occasions at work, most recently while tropical storm (former hurricane) Hermine came through. I was soaked. The front zipper area leaks for sure. Could not find a way to secure it well enough to keep water out. For what I paid I expected to be at least mostly dry. This jacket has failed more than once. I have really wanted it to work but refuse to wear it again. It will be returned. My wife's Patagonia jacket has also failed as the front zipper area leaks on hers also. Both will be returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that waterproof! I bought this jacket for a hiking holiday in Yorkshire, England. It rained most days on the holiday but unfortunately, this jacket was not as waterproof as advertised. It would keep the rain out for 2 hours max and most days I ended up finishing with a very wet fleece underneath. It is not possible to roll up and secure the hood when wearing the jacket so it flaps around your ears in the wind, and there is no pocket big enough for a standard UK hiking map. Disappointing performance form an established outdoor clothing company. On the plus side, it takes up little room in a day pack and is very light weight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hand pockets leak I found the design is quite nice and the wrist straps can be made pretty tight so that during a rainstorm your arms and body will stay dry. However, the major drawback of this jacket is its hand pockets. They were created by attaching extra fabric to the whole jacket, but the seams are not well protected thus a cause of leakage. This makes whatever inside the pocket gets soaked after you are exposed to the rain for even a short amount of time. Moreover, I feel the fabric also absorbs some water. Though you will stay dry, the absorption makes the jacket heavier after it gets exposed to rain for quite a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light-Use Jacket This jacket is great. It's lightweight, stylish, and packable which is a really nice feature when I want to toss it into a carry on or a day pack if I'm expecting rain on a fairly low-intensity day hike. It's stood the test of Pacific Northwest rainforest hikes and torrential midwestern thunderstorms, and I haven't had it soak through once. The only caveat I would mention about this jacket, and really any jacket made of similar material (i.e. the stiff, crinkly shell material) is that it is breathable, but only just. The pit zips allow you to dump some excess heat which is nice, but I only use this jacket as a commuter or a light hiker. Any more strenuous than that, and you'll want to spend the extra money for something that breathes better. On more strenuous hikes, or hikes where you want a midlayer to keep you warm, you'll likely take it off to find everything underneath is soaked in a steamy sweat. It's definitely not the worst thing in the world if you're looking to save money with something that gets the job done, but it is something to think about. All in all it's a fantastic jacket. It fits well, looks really good, and won't soak through no matter what kind of rain you're in. In terms of a light use shell, I don't think you could do much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the PNW This jacket is everything you need for 90% of the weather in the PNW. It keeps all the wind and rain out. The new version has longer sleeves which really go a long way for me with my longer-than-average arms. The hood provides more than enough protection from the elements. The pit zips are also a very welcome feature if you find yourself sweating inside the jacket. It's really not too breathable otherwise. On the plus side, that means you stay warmer than you should for the thickness of the jacket. It's also a fantastic looking jacket to boot!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Really Waterproof I loved this jacket until I was out in the rain for most of a day. I got soaked. The jacket is not waterproof after several hours of rain.

If I have a xl nano air, will a large shell fit over it, or should I get the xl?  The nano is slim fit... Thank you, Jim

Asked by: Junpinjim
This jacket can be used over a Nano Air. The Torrentshell is a regular fit which is designed to accommodate layering underneath. We recommend ordering your usual size from Patagonia.
