    Give wet weather a run for its money.

    As the old adage goes "expect the unexpected," so when it comes to travel, hiking, or casual wear, look no further than the Patagonia Women's Torrentshell Jacket to provide steadfast and adaptive weather-proof protection. Equal parts packable and lightweight, the Torrentshell Jacket is bound to come in handy when afternoon showers interrupt clear skies on an afternoon hike, or simply stuff the jacket into one of its respective hand pockets when you don't need it.

    More importantly, though, the Torrentshell is both waterproof and breathable, meaning you're safeguarded against precipitation—without feeling like you've got the Florida Everglades accumulating on the interior of the jacket. Additionally, an extra coating of DWR treatment bolsters your defense against moisture, while the adjustable hood, hem, and cuffs, double down on your protection. However should you begin to warm up, the zippered underarm vents allow you to release excess heat quickly rather than having to remove the entire jacket and compromise your protection.

    Fired Up...

    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    My step daughters home burned down July 2nd, and she lost most of her gear and clothing. I purchased this for her (along with much more) to help her get geared back up for a month long trip to Europe. She loves it as much as this time around!

    Great rain coat and fun colors

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Needed a rain coat and this did the trick! I like the length of the sleeves. I also tried a marmot and didn't like it as much because of velcro along the zipper. Only complaint is that I always seem to be between a medium and large with patagonia. I have a large nano puff, but for this decided to keep the medium as the large felt too big and frumpy and sleeves super long. The medium is better in the arms but fits snug over my hips...which might be the way it should fit I don't know. I have the galah green and love it!

    Rain Stopper

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I just got this rain jacket for my girlfriend due to the crazy rainy weather recently. It's a great lightweight constructions and packs down nice and small, perfect for hikes and around the town. I love the way it fits her, she wears a small in all other Patagonia, I got her a small and this one definitley fits true to size. I'd recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a bomber rain jacket without much bulk, and a stylish look.

    Great traveling jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I purchased this jacket for my wife to use while traveling. With unpredictable weather this lightweight jacket was the perfect traveling partner. You can throw it in any bag and take it with you just in case something comes up.

    Mom loves it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Great jacket, keeps the water out like it should and is pretty slick looking if I do say so myself. Fit was true to size and mom loves the Red so it checked all the boxes.

    Fantastic Rain Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    This is a great rain jacket for its price! It is light and can pack up very small which is great for taking on hikes or just wearing around town when it rains. Looks great and is extremely functional! No complaints!

    Doesn't Get Much Better

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Like most of Patagonia's outwear, you just really can't beat the quality for the price. Light, breathable, spacious, stylish and packable, this gem of a jacket can be a casual piece for a night on the town or accompany on your daily commute to the office. You could go a size up to layer underneath, but it really does fit true to size.

    I highly recommend it. No complaints so far!

    Super Rain Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got this jacket as a gift for my girlfriend for when spring hiking rolls around. The fit is perfect and has room to stuff an extra layer underneath for when the weather decides to change. One thing that makes it a keeper are the underarm vents for when it gets a little too warm.

    Perfect Rain Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: X-Small
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 118lbs

    This jacket is exactly what you can expect from a rain jacket. I read in the reviews that it runs big, so I sized down and it was perfect. I am 5'2" and ordered the X-Small. This jacket keeps you dry in the elements.

    5-Star City Slicker

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    Sending a huge THANK YOU to Backcountry.com and Patagonia for giving me the chance to review this jacket. It's wonderful to be a part of the awesome community that is Backcountry.com!

    Height: 5' 4.75"
    Bust/Waist/Hips: 33", 25/26", 34.5"
    Weight: 110
    Dress/Pant Size: 00/0/24/25
    Bra: 33AA/XS/S

    FIT: I have this in XS. It does indeed run a bit big, with long arms--however, this allows you to raise your arms comfortably and also allows room for a couple (maybe even a few) layers underneath when it's not merely rainy, but also cold. It also makes a great shell on days in fall/winter when it's not quite snowy, not quite rainy, but somewhere in between. With that being said...

    PERFORMANCE: This piece absolutely shines in cool, rainy weather. In the summer time, I tend to just bear the water coming down from the heavens and embrace the fact that on an 85-degree, rainy day, I would probably be better off without a shell. However, I did give this thing a true test by running to the train stop 5 blocks away on a warm, sprinkly day with merely a tank top underneath. That's right: I allowed for full experience of the dreaded clamminess. Conclusion: the breathability, for it being a $129 shell, is truly quite impressive. (It's no Gore-Tex Pro and not meant to be, but again, impressive.) And for that, matched with the fact it has never leaked, is packable, is lightweight, and has generally never failed me once, garners a 5-star rating.

    PERFORMANCE "CONS": Of course, if you're looking for something that moves a bit better, there are options like Patagonia's stretch Rainshadow. I don't hold it against the Torrentshell that it doesn't stretch, since that's an altogether different ballgame, and it indeed does have room to allow for movement. But in terms of "everyday" kinds of movement (commuting, walking the dog, running to the bus before you miss it) it's just great for the value.

    BOTTOM LINE: This is a great rain jacket for the cost when you're in a pinch but also want something that will last. PS: Don't be afraid to wash it--a tech wash a couple times a year and a DWR spray will do you good and keep the shell lasting for years and years.

    Dry and Stylish

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought the torrentshell jacket because I needed a new waterproof jacket for the winter. I usually wear a small but I bought a medium so I can wear layers underneath the torrentshell. I wore a down jacket underneath the torrentshell in 10 degrees weather and was completely dry and warm. The jacket is true to its size and has deep pockets to keep not only your hand warm but also your wrists. I highly recommend this jacket to anyone who loves the outdoors. Not only that it will keep you dry but it's very stylish.

    Great rain jacket

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: S
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    Nice jacket, typical Patagonia quality and will be good for rain but I decided to get something I can use for the winter too so I will be swapping this for something a little more heavy duty. It does run a little big which gives you room for layering but if you want a snugger fit, I would size down.

    Cut the wind and stay dry

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 110lbs

    I have owned two of these rain shells now. The first one took me through rain season in Costa Rica and the second one is still going strong. This shell is super protective--wore it in the Hoh rainforest, Wasatch front range winter elements and I think it stands out for its ability to act as an amazing wind layer. It will get sweaty on the inside if you are in humid climates, but this is typical of the material it is constructed out of. I love to wear it with my puffy or fleece layer. The cut is sleek (not boxy) and it has a lot of movement. I even used it as my ski shell my first season skiing and it did the job!

    ps: get the pants too!

    Cut the wind and stay dry

    Perfect simple rain coat

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 5'8"

    This a great shell piece. No insulation just shell. Runs large in the waist. I'm a size 10 in womens and I got the large and it ran big.

    Perfect weight

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 151lbs

    Purchased for early October hiking in Pacific Northwest. Was the perfect weight to layer. I purchased a medium, which left me more than enough room to layer up; I thought about returning it for a small, but felt I could use this in winter hiking over a bulkier jacket if I got caught in a storm. Packs up tight, very lightweight. As with all gear, we'll see how it fairs over the test of time!

    Nice Jacket

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'0"
    • Weight: 105lbs

    This is a really nice rain jacket. It looks great, and has a slightly fitted shape. The Harvest Moon Blue is a vibrant blue that stands out but still looks good with anything. I like the pockets on the coat that zip up to keep things safe. Good jacket!

    Fits great compared to other options

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'7"

    I shopped around a bunch and it came down to this and the Marmot Precip. I ended up getting this one because it had a better hood (easier to adjust; fits over a helmet), it was roomier in the chest area (good for chestier ladies; this was also a concern because during a downpour I want to be able to quickly stash my camera under my jacket and zip it), and I felt I could move my arms better during activities like climbing and canyoneering. I did size up but it doesn't look too baggy or boxy. Also, it seemed to be made of a thicker/more rugged material. I've already worn it on two hiking/canyoneering/camping trips where it rained a LOT and it's holding up well. Plus, bonus points for puns!

    Multi Purpose Gold

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Looks great and feels great. I can’t ask for more for a quality Patagonia rain jacket. Breathable, waterproof, and packs up small. I grabbed a Patagonia Nano Puff Insulated Jacket to go under this shell as well. There is plenty of room to wear the Nano Puff underneath if the temps get to a chillier temp for fall hiking.

    Unanswered Question

    I am 5'6 and 108lbs. I have a long torso and long arms, but also have petite bone structure. What size would you recommend? After reading many reviews, I cannot decide between an xs or a small. I am not looking for a slim cut jacket in anyway. I am ok if it is slightly boxy, giving me room for layering, however I don't want it to look so boxy that I look sloppy. This jacket will be used primarily as a daily light weight jacket, and also for hiking/ outdoor activities.

    ordered from BC two weeks ago and now my package is being held somewhere in phx. why havent i received my package? and is there a reason i cant update my shipping address? maybe thats why but now how do i get my package i paid for already!?

    I am studying abroad this coming spring in Ireland and I am looking for a jacket that will be able to keep me warm, dry, and will pack easily. Would this be a good fit? Thanks in advance!

    Unanswered Question

    Is the green torrentshell jacket on the video and pictures the aqua stone color because it looks much lighter to me

    I am looking to purchase the torrentshell jacket for my girlfriend, but I am curious about the sizing. She typically wears a Medium in everything, rain jackets included. Two years ago I bought her the Patagonia Torrentshell Trench Coat (although slightly different than what is currently shown here: http://www.backcountry.com/patagonia-torrentshell-trench-coat-womens) and she had to go with the Large, mainly because it was a bit too snug in the shoulders.

    Would I be safe in assuming that the regular torrentshell jacket is sized similar to the trenchcoat, meaning that I should also purchase the jacket in a large?

    Thank you.

    I would think large would be the best bet because she can always tighten it at the bottom and for sure have room for lots of layers. I normally get a medium too but in this case a large would be nice and roomy for a solid shell.

    I just want to follow up here, as the OP. I ordered the large for my girlfriend, and she was swimming in it. She could have worn a few jackets underneath, and rolled the sleeves up several times. I ordered the medium and it fits very well solo, or with a medium weight layer underneath. She does not need much more for the mild winters of Western Washington.

    I'm 5'9 135 lbs but I feel like my arms are pretty long.... I usually fit s/m. Should I go with a medium? I want to be able to wear a down jacket underneath if needed.

    I'm 5'8" and 130 lbs and can't decide between a small and medium! I'm from Oregon where it's not super cold, so I don't want it to be bulky with just a T underneath BUT I do want to fit a sweatshirt underneath for those colder days. Suggestions??

    Hey Zoie,

    You would best suited with a Medium in the Patagonia Torrentshell., especially if you want to layer something like a sweatshirt underneath. My fiancee is 5'7", 125 lbs. and she wears a Medium in most Patagonia Jackets.

    Feel free to contact me directly if you have any additional questions about Patagonia Jackets or if you are interested in setting up an order.


    Expert Gearhead



    Unanswered Question

    How does the "waterproof rating" compare to the numbers that Marmot uses?

    How long are the sleeves? I'm 5'11" and always have issues with the sleeves and body being long enough.

    I 6'2" with a wingspan slightly longer than that. Buying my normal size jacket, the sleeves were long enough and then there is a velcro cuff to tighten it up if you need to keep it from getting in the way. Hope that helps a little. You can also get with one of the gearheads on chat and have them send someone to measure a specific size for you.

    I'm 5'7", 125#, 34 chest, AND long waisted. Would you guys suggest small or medium?

    Hey Laurie,

    Sounds like you need the small! Medium will give you an extra inch in length, but you would really need to layer up to fill that extra volume.

    Scroll down and you'll see that Laura LaBar (Backcountry Gearhead) and several customers have provided some helpful measurements and respective sizes! I agree with Geoff Conner's response - go with chest measurement. Sounds like you are at the lower range of a small so I think you might be swimming in a medium. Hopefully that helps!

    I am 5'7" and weigh 140lb, I usually wear a size 4 or a small in tops and size 6 in pants. I am debating whether a small or a medium would fit best for me in this jacket, and I would like to be able to layer it. Could you recommend what size would be best?

    Hey Heather,

    Patagonia recommends a a size S for a size 4-6. However, for the best fit, I would recommend going of the chest measurements. A size S is going to fit a 34-35 in chest and a size M is going to fit a 36-37 in chest. If you have any more questions about this jacket or any other gear, please give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at gconner@backcountry.com

    Can the Patagonia down sweater jacket be...

    Can the Patagonia down sweater jacket be zipped into this Torrentshell and if so, do you buy the same size shell as the down jacket?


    Best Answer

    Hey Michelle,

    The Down Sweater really isn't a zip in compatible piece. That doesn't mean it isn't a great jacket for layering. Honestly, the zip in tech trend is really more of a gimmick. Most good performance pieces wont be zip in compatible because the cost and weight doesn't outweigh any benefit it provides.

    I am trying to decide between a medium and...

    I am trying to decide between a medium and large in this jacket, I am 5'10" and weigh 150lbs. I don't want it too tight that I couldn't wear a fleece under it too though. Any thoughts?

    Best Answer

    Hey Erin, I would order that in Large so that you have enough room to layer underneath it. My shell personally runs more narrow through the hips so I find even if I don't have anything layered underneath the jacket it isn't too bulky. A really great measurement to go off of when jacket shopping online is your chest measurement. You'll want to measure around the fullest part of your bust and compare that measurement to the 'Chest' measurement on the Patagonia sizing chart, that way you know you are snagging a size that will fit around your chest (woman problems)

    I hope that helps!
