I bought this jacket specifically for a fall trip to the Adirondacks in upstate NY when the temperatures can range from 30-65 degrees throughout the day. To be very honest, it did and has exceeded my expectations. It is fantastic for a crisp fall day when you don't want to wear a large coat and perfect for hiking in the mountains when its cold/windy/rainy and you need to stay warm and dry. I highly recommend this jacket to anyone! Thank you Patagonia and making great products.

I love the torrentshell line. The jacket is light and well made. There is not much room for bulky layering if that is one's intention with their purchase. I ordered a medium mens and I'm 5'8" 130 (woman) and it fit's just right with a simple polypro shirt underneath. The only things I think could improve the jacket would be a zipper kangaroo pouch with pockets and a larger hood.

Hey, how long has it been since you have seen a good anorak? Long time, I imagine. I had one for years - so old it was in 60/40 cloth (nylon/cotton). They drank up water! This is a nice cover. It is a little light, but good to put in your backpack. Mine matches a down sweater that fits neatly underneath. Probably be my gear for backcountry ski expeditions. Fits small, though, particularly through the torso. With its natural compression, I can buy the down sweater in Large, but I will need a XL in this. No problem, there will be some room in there. Needs "pitzips' to score better.

I'm tall 6'5" so I need long sleeves in a size large. Patagonia never fails me. This Pullover is very light and packs down small. Water proof, wind proof... and the hood is big enough to totally cover my head so my glasses don't get spotted. Great build quality... a little noisy so your not going to sneak up on anyone in this but a great light weight water proof packable pull over.

I received the jacket earlier this week and could not be more pleased. It is perfect for those windy, rainy days when it is perhaps too warm for a winter jacket. It allows one to wear a few layers underneath without it being snug. Highly recommended.
