It's waterproof yet breathable with a laminated visor and storm flaps. Just like a tent but not really. The Torrentshell also has lots of pockets to put all your stuff in.

This jacket lives up to it's name, in a torrential downpour you will be dry. Love the arm vent holes (they open with a zipper) so I don't become a sauna when vigorously walking the dog in the rain.My only criticism: it's cut very straight through to the hip, so for those of us with, ahem, larger hip regions, might want to get a larger size than normal, so it covers the tushie when zipped up.
The jacket is everything that you could want in a mid-line rain jacket. It has plenty of pockets and does a great job at keeping you dry. I've had mine for a few years and I've used it quite a bit on various excursions, as well as day-to-day life in the drizzly weather. The H2No technology isn't as durable as GoreTex, and I'm starting to notice that my jacket isn't keeping me as dry as it once did. However, the price point is much lower than a comparable GoreTex gear, and if you plan to use this jacket only on occasion for years to come, this jacket is for you.
"Get one for yourself and your mom and your sister and your boss."
This jacket is great. Super water repellant, hood cinches to keep you dry. The jacket is light and easy to pack away (i keep mine in my commuter bag). This is easy to pack for long back packing trips and has made several trips with me since I bought mine. Get one.
This is the first Patagonia rain jacket I've owned, and I love it. I've worn it for my bike commute on a couple of rainy days, and it's kept me nice and dry. Hood stays up well in the wind; jacket keeps the rain off without making me too hot. The pit zips are great for when I get nice and warmed up. And like most Patagonia clothes, I love that the sleeves are long enough for my crazy monkey arms.
The Torrentshell is a great option for light weight rain gear. It provides full coverage with breathability with the pit zips which some brands no longer offer. It can also be stowed in its front pocket for compact storage size that is great to keep on your pack or keep in the car.
I bought this rain jacket after having multiple wet and rainy walks to classes on campus. This jacket has kept me dry every time even in pouring rain. I also really like the zipper arm vents in the jacket. These really help when it is a little warmer out. Overall, this is a great jacket and I would highly recommend it!
I really really wanted to like this jacket but the hips were too snug on the XS. The arms fit generously (but comfy), bust and waist allow for a couple inches of ease but the hips were too snug to be comfortable. I'm 5'3" (33-26-35) and a little short in the torso. I thought the fit issue might be due to my height but the jacket is pretty much straight down below the waistline. I tried on the Small but it felt gigantic.
I have been looking at rain jackets for months and finally pulled the trigger on this one. AND BOY AM I GLAD I DID. It's awesome. Fits great, plenty of room for layering, looks awesome. I bought the white one and was a bit worried about getting it dirty but it washes up just fine. The material can be a little noisy when you're moving around but that's okay, it just calls attention to the awesomeness that you're wearing. I've used it for hiking and fishing out on the lake and it's been fantastic. It keeps you dry without suffocating you. Love it.
"Amazing jacket and great a shell for any weather!"
I got this for a rain coat and biking shell for spring but I am amazed at the versatility and the great fit! Women's shells and rain coats tend to be too short in the torso and have two short of arms so I wind up soaking wet no matter how waterproof the jacket was designed to be. This jacket is great and doesn't have that problem! The regular fit allowed me to layer a fleece under it for use on a light snow day in April and it was long enough that it kept me dry (5' 10"). Even though it is a regular fit they still tailored it to be feminine so I don't feel like a marshmallow once I add a layer. It folds into it's pocket which is great so that I can take it on the go to school or on a hike!
This is a must buy if you need a thin waterproof jacket to layer with other clothes. its styllish and moves well. The green really pops i get lots of complemiments. The hood stays secure which is better than those jackests where it just falls down. The fit is great and would look amazing on everyone.
