Anyone own the patagonia torrentshell? Looking to pick one up and am a little torn on sizing.

these topo bags look interesting for the price.

The fit pics make them look a little akward though.

yeah, i like what they're doing, LEED certified production facility and everything.

but without the lash tabs, the daypack would look like the backpacks you get given for free when you move into a college dorm :)

the klettersack isn't bad though.

did you ever pick one up? I picked up the torrentshell pull over when they had their 50% off sale. I think I fit somehwere bt a xs and s (5'7" 140) but got the small. length was perfect and I can fit another layer underneath and its not so bad. I fit a xs nano puff pullover and it fit perfect..

I picked up a Torrentshell jacket on sale recently too. The Medium fits me perfectly. I'm 5'11"/6' and 150lbs, 38-40 chest in shirts if that helps. Very happy with the purchase - given the rainy summer we've had in London, it's been getting a lot of use already (sadly...).

Anyone know where I can get a Patagonia Torrentshell for a decent rate to Canada? The only places that ship to Canada charge $40-50 for shipping... ridiculous (plus full retail price)

i'm in australia and got mine from ebay (although i did have a friendly du on here offer to proxy) - cost $140 US inc postage as opposed to what it sells here - $235 US.

re: sizing, they definitely fit smaller in the chest than TNF. i am an a M in north face venture and went with an L in the torrentshell - its a bit too long on the sleeves, but with a M i don't think i could layer under it. i'm 6'2/165lb for reference.

My old (5 years?) Patagonia softshell won't take NikWax anymore - shit wets out after like, 2-3 days in the rain.

Has anyone had experience with them changing out old gear for new?

I've heard they will hook you up from a few people, but its not something they advertise.

I don't want to spend a ton of money on a new shell right now, but I'm also not trying to make my apartment stink of NikWax twice weekly either.

^ I had a top-of-the-line Alpine jacket from a number of years back. Went in for (free) repairs twice. The third time, they said it was toast (after 8+ years of abuse), and sent me a certificate for $650 towards any Patagonia shell. Class act.

Re what to do with your jacket: I was told to take mine to any Patagonia dealer to have them ship it back to the company. Things might have changed - just give them a call to find out.

hey Guys,

wondering if the Arcrteryx Veilance Field Jacket (manila one from a few seasons back) is fit to serve as a winder coat (in New York) with layering.

It's 3l I think, but definitely way lighter and less heavy duty than other goretex jackets I've owned.

any one use this jacket year round? I'd rather use it than spend more money on a winter coat.
