Patagonia Torrentshell Pant - Men's

Packable rain protection.

Be ready for rainy weather on your next backpacking trip with the Patagonia Men's Torrentshell Pants. Made with Patagonia's H2No Performance Standard membrane, nylon fabric, and fully taped seams, the Torrentshell works to keep you dry as a bone and is super packable, so you can stuff it in one of the hand pockets and throw the whole package in your pack once the skies clear and the sun starts to shine. Patagonia paid careful attention to the details with these pants by treating the lower leg side zippers with a DWR coating for extra water resistance and using a 100% recycled face fabric to make the Torrentshell as eco-friendly as it is weatherproof.

Waterproof and yet comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've worn these while doing aerobic activities through admittedly not-so-fierce southern California downpours while and they haven't wetted through yet. Unlike every other pair of rain pants I've purchased, these were comfortable enough to actually keep wearing throughout the day. I'm not sure what else I'd want in a rain pant!
They are a little long in the leg.

always with me

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

i carry these everywhere i go as soon as i take my bike places. they are light, nice packing size, great deal! get on it and buy them!

In am looking at the Patagonia Torrentshell rain pant. I have 33 waist and 32"inseam. How do these run from a sizing standpoint - should I get a medium or large?

Hi Robert,

If I were you, I'd go with the Mediums. They have a waist measurement of 31-33in and a 32in inseam.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Good Suit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I grabbed the torrent shell pants and matching jacket. Not the smallest pack, but packable none the less. Waterproof for now, wore them for 3 days in Shenandoah. Fits great, light weight, and has the pit vents which is important for me. Certainly a good suit.

good pant

    Got nothing to complaint about , good quality and fair price

    Light And Breathable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Have not used in heavy rain yet but have been great in light rain. I always pack these along with me on all my trips.

    Keep you dry

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Just finished using these pants for a week of hiking in wet, cold and rainy arctic Sweden. I wore them for 2 days straight in mild rain and they never wetted through, whereas a fellow hiker's Marmot Membrain pants did under the same conditions.

    Very comfortable, the fit was perfect, and they conveniently stuff into one of the pockets for compact storage. Breathability is average.

    Fantastic Pants!

    Totally waterproof and comfortable, even hiking in warmer weather, they breath well. I was hiking a 6 hr down pour and they kept me dry.
