Imagination, a shred of finesse and a willingness to let go will see you through many dicey moments—your Powder Bowls will get you through the rest. Built for freedom, spontaneity and never standing still, the Powder Bowl is our storm-ready and backcountry-capable hard shell for riding the frontside steeps or hitting the backcountry’s promise in any condition. It features a tough, 2-layer GORE-TEX® fabric for durably waterproof/breathable and windproof storm performance. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish increases wet-weather protection by sloughing saturated snow and icy rain. The torso has a brushed- polyester mesh interior to wick moisture, while slick mesh in the arms glides smoothly over underlayers. The 2-way-adjustable, helmet-compatible hood includes a laminated visor for optimal visibility and a tall collar for neck and face protection in blowing snow. Inside, a fully adjustable powder skirt (with webbing loop that attaches to any Patagonia® Snow pants) seals out spindrift and cold air, and low-profile pit zips release heat when you’re steaming on long climbs. Other details include coated, watertight slim zips ; cord-lock adjustments at the hood and hem; an embedded RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector; and a highly articulated fit for dynamic motion. Pockets include two handwarmers, one chest with a secure media pocket and cable routing, a forearm pass pocket and two interior pockets (one drop-in, one zippered stash).

The construction of 2-Layer GORE-TEX® Products is unique. A GORE-TEX® membrane is bonded to an outer material, then combined with a free-flowing lining. The benefit: a soft, lightweight garment that keeps you dry and lets you move freely.

The GORE-TEX® membrane has 9 billion pores per square inch, with each pore 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet. These tiny holes are too small for water and wind to pass through from the outside. But these same pores are large enough for moisture vapor to pass through, so your body's perspiration is able to escape and you won’t feel clammy or uncomfortable inside your jacket.

Water Resistant

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Men's Powder Bowl Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2 key suggestions I like the look and feel of the jacket. It offers great protection from the elements. There are two key suggestions that the Patagonia design team should be aware of. Number one: the zippers should be much easier to open and close. In other words, they should glide open and closed more easily with just one hand. I find that I need two hands to successfully open and close them (12 old the jacket and the other to run the zipper).That is often difficult in certain situations. The second suggestion is to position the interior pockets higher. The reason is because when you were sitting on a chair lift and trying to access items in those interior pockets, they are situated so low as to be less accessible and requiring you to zip the primary zipper way further down towards your bellybutton—exposing you to the elements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice jacket I've only had this jacket long enough for one day of skiing. So far, so good! The fit is good -- roomy enough for layers underneath, without being too billowy. The Large size is a good length for me, too (I'm nearly 6' 2"). I like that the storm flap is behind the main zipper -- makes it easier to zip up and down. Given that this jacket is intended for skiing, it could benefit from having a dedicated external attachment point (such as an D-ring) for displaying a lift ticket or annual ski pass. Attaching the pass to a zipper interferes with the zipper's operation, just invites damage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shell I bought this shell hoping I could stop my cycle of buying and selling shells because I wasn't happy with certain features. This shell finally stopped that. Just enough room for all the junk I carry touring, bulletproof construction, and great fit. It's a little long but I like that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from outstanding value, longer length than I prefer I bought this jacket for skiing the local mountains in Summit County. Love it in everyway, but it is cut pretty long. I think the idea is to cover your butt on chair lifts. As long as you know this you will be very happy. Patagonia = quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shell on the market As a ski patroller I've been a long time advocate for Patagonia gear and the Powder Bowl jacket is one of my favorite. It's bomb proof Gore-Tex is like having body armor on in tuff climates and dealing with negative 20 and 50 mile an hour winds Ive stayed warm and comfortable. I layer with a base, a mid layer of a Patagonia R1 and a nano vest and I'm good to go.. I've tried on other brands and found Patagonia to be more true to size and fit. Im 5'11 and 195lbs and the medium fits me perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring back the zip off hood! Mine is going into it's fourth season. It see's about 30 days a year of alpine skiing in VT. It's been great but I wanted to get a new one this year. But wait, what's this, no removable hood?!?!? No removable hood, no sale. Bring it back or I'll have to look elsewhere Patagonia. No joke, I feel that strongly about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shell I researched ski shells for 3 months before I bought one. I looked very closely at last year's Powder Bowl Jacket and finally committed to this one this year. I used it for skiing 3 days in early December and it performed excellently. This year's Powder Bowl has what appear to be a few upgrades from last year. First, the inside material appears to be a smaller mesh, which makes the material more smooth to put on over layers. Second, the inside fabric around the shoulders is solid, which I like for layering as well. Third, the powder skirt is now adjustable, rather than just being a band that stretches around the waist. I like that feature. The hood is no longer removable, which makes sense since it probably evens out the cost for the other upgrades. I wish it were - I don't like to ski with my hood but like the option of attaching it when I wear it other times. That said, I didn't notice it when I was skiing, and I think the upgrades are definitely worth it. I am 6' 1", 175 lbs with wide shoulders but a narrow waist. This jacket fits really well, slightly on the large side but not baggy at all. With the powder skirt, it sealed the heat in and kept the wind out, and made for extremely comfortable days on the slopes and around town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket This is my second Powder Bowl Jacket. I love this jacket. I ski multiple times a week in northern VT and it performs flawlessly every time. It keeps out the wind and the wet, be it rain or snow. It is very well designed in terms of pockets and features, I couldn't ask for more. I am also very pleased that the new version has a hood that is helmet compatible. My only beef, and it's a relatively small one, is that there is no way to either stow the hood, or remove it , as with previous versions. I intend to add hook and loop velcro to allow me to roll up the hood and affix it to the back of the collar, to keep it out of the way and from filling with snow. Then the garment will be perfect.
