Ws Granite Crest Rain Jacket

Kinda Large
November 19, 2023

Nice jacket but insufficient for heavier rain

I really like the fit and light weight of this jacket. Plume gray colorway is nice as well. However, as a rain jacket it is only good for lighter rain not a sustained downpour. I live in a climate which is generally dry but when it rains it can rain very hard and this jacket felt like it was wetting out in those conditions (hiking at 10,000 feet). ... Read MoreI bought this as a less noisy alternative for spring/summer hikes in contrast to an Ascensionist jacket, which I use in colder weather for snow shoeing and backcountry/XC skiing.

Hello Judith, thank you for your review of the Women's Granite Crest Rain Jacket. We are sorry the jacket is not keeping you dry when you are doing some higher elevation hikes. We would recommend washing and drying the jacket. We recommend this as this tends to improve the waterproof qualities of our H2No shells. Machine-wash in warm water (86˚F/30˚C) using a ‘technical wash’ specifically formulated for waterproof/breathable garments. If you don’t have a technical wash solution in your laundry room, you can use a biodegradable fragrance-free, dye-free detergent. If you are using a standard detergent, be sure to give the jacket an extra rinse cycle to ensure a residue-free garment. Drying waterproof/breathable fabrics on a medium/warm setting will help to renew the fabric’s durable water repellent (DWR) finish, which keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated in wet conditions. If after washing and drying your Granite Crest Rain Jacket, water still does not bead up but soaks into the jacket, we can help you with a [warranty return](

Not waterproof enough for daily dog walks in the PNW

I really wanted to love this jacket. I bought it (admittedly, on sale) from REI in March to replace my Patagonia Calcite jacket, which had gotten a bit worn out and permanently dirty after a couple of years of near-daily trail walks with my dog in the Pacific Northwest. Both styles have the single zippered chest pocket, which I like for carrying my... Read More ID with me. Today was just the last straw, so I guess I'm rage reviewing. I got soaked through AGAIN wearing this over my Nanopuff. This is marketed as a "rain jacket" but I can count on my shoulders and upper back getting wet every time I walk in anything more than light rain. I have gotten soaked through to my t-shirt wearing this over my Nanopuff or a sweatshirt after less than 2 hours in wet weather. I don't understand how they can call it waterproof. I want to replace it with another Patagonia jacket, because I support the company's mission, but I don't want to keep getting soaked in the rain, particularly as winter is coming and that rain is cold. (And the jacket itself is in fine shape, except for not repelling the water.) Maybe there was a reason it was on sale. Some of the other models are hundreds of dollars more - in the spirit of "you get what you pay for," I would be willing to spend that if I was guaranteed to stay dry (and could find one with a chest pocket). But I still don't know why this jacket isn't working.

Hey Kristin, thank you for the review. We are so incredibly sorry to hear that this rain jacket is wetting through, and we could totally understand why you would be frustrated. This definitely sounds like a warranty issue, and the jacket is supposed to be waterproof. If you run into any issues like this in the future with our products (which we hope is not the case), please promptly connect with [customer service](*1klnbfn*_ga*NjQ4MDAzMDY0LjE2ODI5NTAxOTA.*_ga_1SYPSJZYJ5*MTY5NTkyNDg2OS4zNjMuMS4xNjk1OTI1MDg5LjU4LjAuMA..) so we can provide you with immediate assistance. We've emailed you to gather more information and set you up with a warranty evaluation. We look forward to resolving this situation for you in a timely manner.

I am slim and 5'4" and this fits great. I got the sedge green which is a very nice color. I really like that the coat is a little longer; the cut is very flattering.

Slim Fit Rain Jacket

I am 5 ft 3, 120lb, 30D bust, 26 waist, non-curvy and the XS fits great. Theres just enough room for a sweatshirt/layers underneith. The only thing I do not like is the tail on the back- I have a short torso so it looks quite long. Zero leakage in extreme weather, this jacket is built to last!

October 1, 2023

Love, love this jacket

I absolutely love this jacket. The material is wonderful and fits perfectly on me. I have enough room to wear a sweater under it. This jacket will never go out of style. Thank you so much!!

September 10, 2023


I bought this and another hiking coat from another brand at the same time. And although this one doesnt look as stylish its way better! It breathes despite being waterproof, definitely perfect for summer! All of the features on this coat is great.

hip area runs small

I'm also pear-shaped and agree with the previous reviews below. I primarily need a light waterproof jacket for hiking in the tropics while it's humid, but would have loved to be able to wear this in the fall/spring in the PNW with layers underneath. I tried size large first and the sleeves were extremely long on me (past knuckles, and my ... Read Morearms are not short for my 5'5" frame), the mid-section had plenty of room even with a puffer jacket underneath, and the hips were just right. I ended up getting a medium to fit my primary use. If I layer a puffer jacket underneath the medium, the outline of the puffer jacket shows up in the back on my butt, so I won't be wearing thick layers underneath. This jacket is longer in the back than the standard rain jacket I've tried on, which I prefer.

Hi Elaine, thank you for sharing this feedback on the fit of this jacket. We're sorry to hear the hip portion wasn't great for you! This kind of feedback is very helpful to us and to other customers.

Perfect light weight rain jacket.

Outstanding quality

This jacket is exactly what I wanted. I chose one size larger than usual in order to be able to wear this over heavy sweaters in the winter.

Rain wear

Had the opportunity to test my jacket and it worked beautifully….not only kept me dry, it dried quickly once I got home.

August 22, 2023

Odd fit

I really needed a rain jacket and i had a credit with Patagonia, so i purchased this in store during the sale. I tried on the XS and it was too tight around the hips and chest area (I'm 32C), and when i tried on the size up the S was quite large. I ended up getting the size S anyways so that i can layer underneath, but really odd fit.

Super soft, amazing fit

I just recently purchased this jacket and took it on two trips with me. We happened to get in a couple of significant rain storms and the jacket held up just awesome to the wind and blowing rain. I was dry and warm without any layers underneath. I typically wear a medium and purchased a large so I have room to layer underneath. The jacket is perfe... Read Morect sized for that. The hood seemed a bit large but is highly adjustable and I was able to use those adjustments to get it to fit properly. I really like the fit of the hood with a ball cap underneath as the hood is large enough to cover the hat and it keeps rain off my glasses!

Thrilled with this jacket

I needed a rain jacket for travel and hiking in more developing countries - we are heading to Africa in a few weeks. This jacket is both lightweight and sturdy, so comfortable, and the fit is absolutely perfect. The jacket itself is lightweight but keeps out the rain and wind, and the fabric is soft, not crunchy like some shells out there. It pac... Read Moreks down easily into its own pocket and is so convenient to stuff into a backpack while traveling or into my handbag when running around the City. I forget its there until I need it! I got the light plume grey color, and it is a dusty bluish grey with royal purple and light turquoise accents - its a beautiful combination that hides dust and dirt well while still having a bit of subtle flair. Functionally the jacket is exactly what I need - something I can throw on when its pouring out and still be able to stay dry and walk around comfortably. I have never had to use them, but the pit zips are a nice to have option, the pockets are in the perfect spot for shoving my hands in if I want to keep them warm and dry - not too high and not too low. The hood adjustment is also good and I can pretty easily get it to fit, with the visor at just the right level to keep rain from pelting me in the eyes, without having to manually hold the hood up and away from my face or worry that it will blow off my head. Im 5 foot 4 inches and 95 pounds, so finding a jacket that fits properly and isnt too big, boxy, or short is a challenge. Im thrilled to say that Patagonias XXS feels like it was tailor made for me. Its a very flattering cut that fits perfectly at the shoulders, tapers a bit at the waist, and ends at a perfect length just below my hips covering the top half of my butt, with room for layers underneath. Looks great whether I have short shorts or pants on, with or without insulating layers underneath. Ive always loved Patagonia gear but size was always a barrier - XS always felt one size too big and I had to live with things feeling roomier than ideal. The XXS is absolutely perfect, I couldnt be happier. I really hope they continue to make XXS a regular size option on their gear going forward. Especially with well thought out and executed pieces like this jacket, Im getting ready to replace all my Arcteryx gear with Patagonia!!

Size up if purchasing Float Blue

Purchased this jacket to keep me dry on a long week hike and worked perfectly! The armpit zip is such a luxury and allows for a cooler temperature. Sale items seem to fit more narrow in the hips (it appears they took the poor reviews and revised the fit!), but when I purchased the size up (xs to a s), it still worked for me

May 21, 2023

Bring on the Rain

Love this item for hiking, and running in the elements. The waterproof zippers gives me that extra security for all my belongings knowing they will stay dry. The material and the lack of crunchy sound the material makes puts it far above most any rain jackets. Also have worn it snowboarding on the warmer days, good durable choice for the outdoor wa...

Not a good fit for a pear-shaped figure

Looks like this should be a good jacket quality-wise, but be careful of the sizing if you have a pear-shaped figure. My measurements are XXS for chest (31in) and almost S for hips (37.5in), so I gambled on an XS that was on sale. It fits pretty well on top with ample room for layering underneath, but indeed just barely fits in the hips. If I had si... Read Morezed up to match my hips, the top would be much too baggy. So, technically, this jacket seems to run to size, BUT that suggests Patagonia standard sizing is not a great fit for my body type. I will probably keep this jacket because it fits well enough to work, and because I like the features that most other brands dont offer (recycled content, repair and resale programs, fair trade manufacturing). However, the fit makes me wary of buying Patagonia jackets or tops in the future. I wish their sizing were just an inch or two more generous in the hips, to better accommodate those of us with curvier bottoms than busts (while still not being too roomy for smaller-hipped people). I would become a steady customer if I could be confident that garments would fit.

Perfect for spring skiing, except for not having a zipper pocket on the arm for a your pass.

Thanks for the feedback, Eileen! There is a chest pocket on this jacket that you can use for your pass.

Ended up returning

I ordered the large because I wanted to be able to wear it over my puff jacket and maybe my vest. It was pretty big even with those items under. Just kind of a weird fit. And the color was more purple than blue-ish. I ended up returning this jacket.

Light Weight Easy to Pack

I bought the blue one on sale last month. True to the color, fits a little bit snug (bought S and the M was too bulky) . Two deep front pockets but I wish it had more and smaller pockets. Like the front zipper and the side under arm zipper feature. Easy to pack, keeps you dry and warm from the wind.

Does its job, very well

After dealing with one atmospheric river after another in California, it was time to invest in a proper rain jacket.

Women with hips need not apply

The previous reviews are correct. This jacket is very narrow in the hips. If you have curves, look elsewhere. It's frustrating. Other than the fit, the jacket seemed solid. I returned it.

More than I what I expected...

This jacket was a gift from my Dad to me to use both during my long walks to college campus and use on our trips/work in National Parks/Monuments in the West.

Read More jacket. With the weather that Northern and Central California has experienced this winter, I have found this jacket to be bomb proof! Have never had the jacket soak through and coupled with its really lightweight feel and cut, have not found a true weakness. I also own a Torrentshell jacket of the same size and love them both. This style feels lighter but slightly slimmer in its cut where the Torrenshell is maybe slightly heavier feel but a straighter cut if that makes sense? You cant go wrong with either but love this one just a smidgin more right now.

Great jacket with lots of good features

The jacket fits very nicely and is nice and lightweight, zipping into the pocket makes it very packable.

Response from Patagonia
February 13, 2023

Hi Nikki, when the inside of your jacket has moisture, generally it is caused by moisture trying to get out or being trapped by your base layer rather than coming in from the outside. Your next to skin, base layer should keep you warm and dry underneath your jacket. Sweating and exposure to moisture in the air can quickly saturate many cotton or natural fiber base layers, so a next to skin layer of wicking fabric is critical. Moisture-wicking material transfers the water molecules from the surface of your skin to the outer clothing layers, keeping you dry from the inside out, as well as the outside in. Our [Capilene]( is an example of a wicking, fast drying base layer that is specifically designed to work with our waterproof shells.
