My front-seat opinion is that this jacket fit me a little too baggy for my liking--I bought a LRG and I'm 6'3'' 180lbs. It was a loose in the body, especially the lower body, and the bungees tightened it down, but still a little too baggy.
It did keep my dry in the rain, not downpours, but regular rain. Another criticism I have is that the inside of the jacket was stained by my polyester shirt because of the constant pressure from the backpack shoulder straps on top, jacket in middle, and shirt underneath. Didn't affect performance, but looks nasty.
The wrist velcro straps are helpful for keeping your arms drier and the warmth sealed in. The pit zips are great for trudging uphill. Overall, for the weight and price, this is a solid shell, it'll keep you shielded from the strong winds--even on Mt. Washington--and dry from moderate-strength rain. For downpours or a more athletic fitting jacket, you might consider another.

Patagonia's Torrentshell is a fully waterproof hardshell capable of withstanding anything from hurricane force winds and rain, to dust storms, to light afternoon showers. It has a Deluge DWR Finish, is highly breathable, underarm zips for dumping excess heat, a helmet compatible hood, very large front zip pockets, the ability to stow into it's own pocket for easy storage, and much more. For the price you will not find a better jacket that meets the same quality as the torrent shell. USSOCOM adopted a grey version of the Patagonia Torrentshell for their level 6 jacket in the Protective Combat Uniform line for SOF Operators. If this jacket is good enough for that group of people surely it is good enough for anyone else.
The torrentshell is a great rain jacket. I have been in lots of rain storms with this thing and have never been wet. It doesn't
Breath the best so if you are doing something aerobic it can get kinda clamy inside. The pit zips are perfect if you are hiking, but I got pretty sweaty inside riding my bike in the rain. It packs down pretty small into its own pocket. I throw a small strap around it to compress it more when I'm putting it in a backpack. All and all its a great rain shell especially for the price
I'm super stoked on the new Torrenshell, the Patagonia design team gave it some nice updates this year, improving on the original Torrentshell greatly. My favorite is the updated storm flap, which is slimmer and lower profile, making it easier to zip and unzip the jacket, while still being totally weather proof. The fabric and fit were also updated for better comfort and performance.
It's a great fully waterproof and windproof jacket, and stuffs into it's own front pocket which is great for travelling, or not taking up a lot of room in a pack or suit case.
I have used the torrent shell on numerous occasions. I was excited about the packability of this jacket. it packs into one of it's own pockets and will get pretty small.Unfortunately after about 5 minutes of good soaking western North Carolina mountain rain I got/ get soaked in this thing. This jacket is probably fine for running from class to class, or the parking spot to work, but for anyone headed into any kind of backcountry trip I would steer away from this product. For a similar price point I'd check out the marmot storm shield, or precip jacket.
Been caught in several downpours and stayed dry while wearing the Torrentshell. Can get clammy , but the airvents help under each arm. Packs down nicely in it's pocket.
