The Patagonia Men's Torrentshell Jacket is waterproof, windproof, durable and breathable. It also packs nicely into a bag or wherever else you want to stuff it. Keep those details to yourself. The laminated visor and extra waterproof fabric make sure you stay warm and dry during monsoons. The zipper and pit zips have storm flaps to make extra super sure the rain stays on the outside of the jacket. It goes great with peanut butter sandwiches.

In my opinion of course. Used to use the Marmot Precip that was a great jacket but when I had to replace it, they changed the dimensions a bit. I then tried another brand that had "breathable" material sans underarm zippers and that didn't work for me at all. I then tried this Patagonia jacket and the fit was right, it had underarm zips, and was offered in a nice teal color. Stands up well to Seattle weather. Hood conforms nicely to my head when cinched down. I also like that the front zipper flap cover isn't velcro'd down.
This coat is the move. Haven't had a chance to use it on a hike, but I've walked 20+ min to class in what some might call a small typhoon with a down layer underneath and it held out perfect. Completely waterproof, and cuts wind to keep you warmer. The only downside is when you wear it without a layer underneath; the rain against the material can make it seem cold and wet to the skin. But then again, 98% of the time you'll have a layer underneath, or you won't be soft enough to care. Highly recommend.
I ditched my marmot precip in search for something better and have found it in the patagonia torrent shell. Not only is this an excellent rain jacket, but for the entire winter season I have been using this as a hardshell and it performs almost as well my M10 (which is three times the price). I would definitely advise that this jacket can only be used as a shell if you are careful about how you treat it. Like most rain jackets, they aren't quite as tough as a true dedicated hardshell and should be treated with a certain amount of care. I liked this jacket so much I bought one for my girlfriend who not only loved it, but has since bout two more as presents for family members. I will never go back to a marmot jacket again - patagonia is in another realm as far as quality craftsmanship. I will definitely buy another one of these when the one oI have wears out.
This is a great jacket for NY rain. A six block walk home in the rain, after a long days work, was not pleasant. I am so happy with this jacket, I keep it rolled up in my backpack. I am 6'2, weigh around 195 lbs, bought the XL.
I've had this rain jacket for about two years and it has held up pretty well. The sizing isn't to off and the colors that are provided are pretty sweet. My only complaint would be the waterproof resistance after awhile decreases especially if you are around a camp fire. I've had to go out and buy the Nikwax waterproof spray to clean my jacket. But it works well and I've only had to use the spray because I've used the jacket so much in the past two years. But overall its a good jacket for the price.
I bought this jacket a while back and have put it through a lot. This jacket works great on day hikes with a some down pour or for extended light drizzles but if you are looking for something that will hold up in torrential downpour or for long periods of rain fall this is not the jacket. I took this guy on a two week backpacking trip on the lost coast trail which runs along the northern coast of California. Being on the coast we often had fog role in on us and light drizzles come in the afternoon here and there and this jacket stood up great. But one day we did a summit of Kings Peak and we experienced decent rain for the entire day and this jacket wet through which left me at the peak wet and cold. So like I said if you want something light that is easy to take everywhere this is the jacket for you! But if you need something a little more beefy then look elsewhere.
All in all, this is a really nice rain jacket. The fit is slightly slimmer than I expected. I'm 5'6", 150lbs. and I rock a Small. The zippered arm pits are a life saver if you are doing anything strenuous. I use this jacket mostly when bike commuting on rainy days, and the fact that it stores compactly into its own pocket is awesome. Great jacket for the price!
"Great fit, used in tropical downpours with adequate protection"
Pros:- great fit for smaller frame individuals (XS will fit me at 5'3")- velcro seal over zipper will not let water through- wrist straps for adjustment for additional protectionCons:- no way to tighten hood so it stays on in windier environmentAdditional:- don't expect much insulation from this- waterproof it (multiple spray products on the market) every rainy season for long lasting performance
