Keeps You DRY and WARM!

I have many rain jackets but we were attending an outdoor concert in the rain, and needed to insure that we would stay dry! And this jacket fit the bill! Wore a fleece underneath and not a drop through - with the hood kept us warm and dry for 6 hours in pouring rain! Only criticism is that it runs a little small so I had to get a large to fit a swe...

had to wait until I went to Alaska to review. I stayed dry during the down pours

This jacket is amazing. I love it. I ordered a large and I am usually a medium. The large fits perfect -- with just enough room. It has so many great details but still very understated. I haven't been this happy with a purchase in a long time. I'm thinking about buying more for Christmas presents.

Really like the jacket. The

Really like the jacket. The longer fit and hood are great. I live in a rainy place and it is indeed waterproof. The only thing I think it needs is a zip pocket in the sleeve or breast I like to put a coin purse there for shopping. Thanks

Very wind and water resistant

Kept me very warm and dry on a hike in the Highlands! It worked well with extreme wind. It fit well yet had enough room for me to have layers underneath, including a packable down jacket.

Great Rain Jacket

I have tried numerous rain jackets from arcteryx, mountain hardwear to marmot. This is the best jacket you can get for its price.

September 11, 2023

Nice rain coat.

Very well made and comfortable to wear.

September 11, 2023

Not packable as advertised

I bought this to be able to take for travel. Said it packs into its pocket. Neither I nor my husband can get this to work!!!! Very disappointing!!! I have other packable Patagonia items.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review Amy! We are also very sorry to hear that you had issues with stuffing your jacket into its pocket. We would recommend making sure that you are stuffing your jacket into the left handwarmer pocket and slowly stuffing the pocket from the inside to ensure the entire jacket fits.

Rain jacket

I love the jacket, I will just add it would be nice for " full figured" women have a size choice in the great colors. Working on getting in better condition so it will end up being ok.

September 5, 2023

Love it!!!

Omg im legit sitting here in 90 degree NYC weather hoping it rains just so i can rock my new raincoat! I love it. The style is cute, the fit is perfect and the color is this deep blue which is almost purplish a bit and goes w my rain proof purple uggs. So happy customer here for sure!!

Classic Patagonia

Have worn it for 2 rainy hikes out in WA and stayed completely dry. 5'6" 150lbs (muscular build): fits perfectly with room for my better sweater (size M) underneath.

September 5, 2023

fantastic, packable rain jacket

This jacket is lightweight, breathable and easily packable, yet totally waterproof. I love that it doesn't have velcro down the front zipper so it doesn't snag my shirt or a scarf. The hood is great and stays up. I wish I had found this jacket earlier! It's easily the best rain jacket I've ever tried.

True to size. Light weight

I’m fishing from a boat and am as dry as possible underneath. Great item!!

Lightweight Rain Defense

I purchased the Torrentshell 3L Rain jacket based on one that I borrowed from a friend. It is lightweight and has functional detailing such as adjustable wrist tabs, pit zips, storm flaps over zippers, and adjustable hood. The fabric sheds rain well. It is a bit loud however which may be from the type of waterproofing fabric that is used. Due to it... Read Mores lightweight nature I would like to extend its use by layering a fleece or sweatshirt underneath. I can use a base layer that is not too bulky. The jacket would also benefit from the use of a 2-way zipper because the length is at or a bit lower than the hips. A bit of ease with a 2-way zipper would be very nice. I chose the navy blue and am pleased with the color. Looking forward to wearing it during an upcoming camping/hiking trip to northern Michigan.

Waterproof Jacket for the win!

This summer has been quite rainy for the area I live in, so after countless times of being caught in the rain, I decided it was time to invest in a rain jacket. This one did not disappoint! I love that I can fold it into its pocket, so I can just keep it in my Patagonia tote bag that I bring to work for whenever it starts raining out of no where. T... Read Morehis thing keeps me so dry! I also love the arm cuffs so I get that nice detailed fit. So invest, you will thank yourself when you get caught in that rainstorm!!

I’m 5’5” and 120lbs and size small is perfect with room to layer a fleece. I’ve been searching for a waterproof jacket not water resistant and this jacket is it!!! Finally! Love the dried mango color. Pit zips are a great advantage for hiking. The hood is roomy but not falling over your face. Definitely recommend this jacket as a staple.

Great rain jacket at a reasonable price

I bought this to replace a very old Patagonia rain jacket had an older technology lining that was delaminating. I haven't worn it yet (waiting for rain), but I like the fit and LOVE the color.

I'll wear it when I walk to work and for hiking.

almost perfect

an excellent rain jacket with nice features. Gave it four stars because I could have used a double zipper (that also opens from the bottom). Otherwise it's a keeper.

Jacket is great

This jacket is very nice it replaced some bright rain jackets I had that didnt offer real protection .I have slim hips ( and a large waist and bust ) so the fit was great for me I can see if you have larger hips that you may need to size up.I like the small because once it gets cold even with a heavy sweater underneath it might not be warm enough.T...

I ordered this rain jacket so I could bring it on my cruise to Alaska and it was worth every penny! Unfortunately, it rained every day we were at port but this jacket kept me dry.

Great everyday raincoat

I bought this raincoat for myself and my young daughter on a whim when we got caught in a rainstorm close to a Patagonia store. I am happy I did! They fold up nicely in a purse and are perfect for everyday, casual wear. They will keep you dry in an average rainstorm.

Keeps me dry in the rain

Great jacket at a great price

Patagonia products are always great, and this jacket is no exception. It really hits the sweet spot between price and performance.

Absolutely Beautiful Rain Jacket

My husband bought me this rain jacket in Evening Mauve for my birthday (77). My daughter advised him on the size, and it is perfect. My arms are a little short so I love the velcro wrist adjustment. I also love the cut of the hood. I can't wait for it to rain!

April 28, 2023

Hood fits all of my curly hair!

Perfect fit. Love the color. Actually keeps me dry. But my favorite part about this jacket is that I can put my hair in a puff and the hood still covers my head. It has taken me years to find a jacket that doesn't make it a pain to wear my hair curly.

April 16, 2023

Super Waterproof

This is my second Torrentshell jacket. My last one was close to 7 years old. I'm an avid walker in the Pacific NW so rain is always imminent. I sized up because I usually wear a vest underneath for added warmth when needed. I love that this jacket covers my hips and that this newer version uses a heavier fabric. This jacket is well-made as wel... Read Morel. I can tighten the hood and lower hem to keep the rain away from my body. I also appreciate and use all the pockets. In addition, the side vents are fantastic too, to allow for air circulation if I get too warm.

So Dry!

This jacket is fantastic! I lost my old rain jacket and had to buy a new one for a concert at Red Rocks that was supposed to rain all night. This jacket kept me so dry! My friends with me were all jealous. In the past I had gotten <$100 jackets, I was reluctant to fork over the cash but it was so worth it. You definitely get what you pay for wit... Read Moreh Patagonia. I have two complaints, I wish it had the double zipper. I have wide hips and hate going up to the next size because then my upper body is swimming in the jacket also an XXL was not available at the store I was at and I needed the jacket immediately. A double zipper allows me to unzip the bottom portion to accommodate my hips better. That leads me to my 2nd complaint, i wish the jacket flared out more at the bottom to cover the top of my bottom. I find Patagonia stuff is pretty straight and doesn't have much curve which is unfortunate for us curvy girls who want great gear. Curvy girls enjoy outdoor activities too and I think Patagonia can do a better job accommodating that. The quality of the jacket is superb, I just wish it had a better fit

Love fest

I love this jacket! It makes me happy to head out in the pouring rain with the dog and know I will stay dry for hours! The hood is great, keeps the rain off my face. The two way armpit zippers are perfect. The pockets a good size. Combined with the pants I am west coast weather prepared!

Wanted to love this

I wanted to love this coat because it’s so cute but I don’t find it waterproof. I’ve worn it a few times in the rain and the clothes I wear underneath always seems to get wet. It would make a good windbreaker and I’ve read other positive reviews but mine just doesn’t seem to keep me dry

Hi Valerie! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review on the Torrentshell 3L Jacket. We're very sorry to hear it's not keeping you dry. We're interested to know if the jacket is wetting through or if there is some humidity being created inside while it's worn. That can create the feeling of your clothes being wet when the jacket itself is keeping you dry from outside moisture. That said, we've reached out to you directly to get to the bottom of this and offer further assistance.

fit not right

Using the Patagonia size chart I ordered a large - it was huge on me.

Cute and perfect for rain or wind

Very lightweight enough to layer up and still look cute. Doesn't make you look boxy/wide like other jackets but I would say to size up if you need more space for your hips.

Not for curvy frames

The coat works great against the rain, however it's so tight on my hips, I can't properly wear it. It's probably a great jacket if you don't have hips, however if you do, I'd try a different brand. Unfortunately I ordered the largest size so I can't try a larger one (it would be too big up top anyways).
