I love the pants and the guarantee behind them!

I am a Power Learn ski instructor at Windham Mountain, we are out with our clients for long stretches of time and pretty much I only trust Patagonia to keep me warm and dry. I love the quality and comfort and the satisfaction guarantee behind your product. Thank you!

very cozy

It is summer so not ready to wear lined pants yet but going to try to use them every day in winter just in my office as winter is cold here. I LOVE Pategonia's quality always!

I purchased the Powder Bowl pants and wore for 2 seasons, and half way through the second season the black color on the bum turned grey/worn color. I'm terribly disappointed as I purchase Patagonia gear due to a confidence in the quality of the Brand and it's disheartening to pay that kind of money and get only approximately 10 wear days ... Read Moreout of them. They look terrible now which is such a shame as the fit, warmth and comfort of the material was perfect. I am a snow boarder so do spend more time on my butt, but have had other snow pants that never did this after 5 seasons of wear.

These pants are great. I

These pants are great. I am a shorty so I have a big alteration in front of me. Do you guys do these kinds of alterations?

Love them!

The fit is great and the pockets and zippered vents are placed well. I have been so comfortable skiing in them, that I have not worn my other ski pants since I got these. Love them!

Great snow pants!

These-work great for snowshoeing. I would like if they were waterproof (gore-tex) just to have that protection from rain.

Weird Sizing

I am 5' 4" and about 160 lbs for reference. I never ended up using these pants due to the sizing. I tried the mediums on and they were too small, but the large was way too big, even with the Velcro waist adjustments. I purchased them because I needed a new pair for a trip I was taking, but ended up finding another snow pant that fit bette... Read Morer somewhere else and returned them unused. I am sure if they had fit they would have been great for my trip.

Not black

I don't want to give these pants too bad of a rating because my issue with them was cosmetic, which isn't THAT important, I guess. I actually never wore them skiing prior to returning them so can't comment on functionality. I do agree they are very baggy. A slimmer, while still roomy, fit would be preferable. My complaint is that t... Read Morehe black ones weren't really black. When paired with my black Patagonia ski jacket (I think the model I have is called Primo?) they looked very brown. And they looked very brown when held up to black ski pants from other brands. This is a petty complaint but I am a terrible skier so the only thing I have going for me is looking like my pants and jacket are at least coordinated...

Hi Phoebe! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the pants weren't quite black. We understand the it doesn't effect the functionality of the pants, but disappointing nevertheless. We really appreciate this feedback and we'll share this with our design team.

Dumpy butt

I'm sad to report that these did not work for me. I ordered my usual size S (two pairs of these previously). I am 5'9" 125 and admittedly have some Romanian dead lifts to do (flat butt); however, the butt on these pants was laughable for me. I exchanged for the XS, but the rise was too short and gave me a front wedgy--not functional.... Read More

Runs small

Runs really small with zero give which doesn't bode well for winter skiing

Fit is off

Like the other reviewers, the fit was off for me. The smalls were too tight in the waist and the Mediums were way too big in the waist and butt. I'm typically a size small.

feeling toasty warm in 3 Degree F

I feel excited when it gets cold and snowy. I can wear my Patagonia Snow Pants! They are super comfortable, no extra bulk, nice material, perfect warmth, and pretty color. I use the adjustable velcro streps on the inside around the hips (they are not in the way) depending on the base layer.

Fabric color wore out in the knees

I purchased the Powder Bowl pants less than 2 years ago, and after one ski season, the black wore out on the knees. I didn't realize there is a 2 year return period, so i just wore them last season, but was very disappointed in the way they looked. They are super warm! and for that i love them. I am a ski patroller, and am on my knees quite a ... Read Morebit caring for patients, etc, but still, the knees should not have worn out the way they did. They're all faded after one season, and do not look good. I am not sure i can even exchange them for a new pair because my order says it was not shipped. so there is no option to click on for an exchange.

Waist is great, legs are xl

The waist fits like a solid L, great that its adjustable, but the legs are super big, it might just be reflecting todays baggier fit pants, but the legs are really baggy. Im used to a more slender fit from Patagonia.

Fit is off

I wanted to love these pants so much as they had a short option but in the end they were way too large. They were too big at the waist and super baggy around the legs. I tried a Large because I have an older model of these in a medium and the medium is just a tad small. I will may my medium work for another year. I just can't seem to find the ...

Poor fit

I wanted to replace my old Patagonia ski pants with these ones and was really hoping that I would love them. Sadly they were a terrible fit. The small was too tight in the waist, with the rise being too short. The medium was gigantic and poofed out a lot in the legs. I also dislike the new fabric. Unfortunately these are the only insulated pants in... Read More the inventory this season. I'm particularly out of luck, since I sent my other ones in for repair and with the turn around time looks like it might not get them back this season.

Sizing is off

I first ordered a size Large and they were enormous so I returned for a size Medium and they are too small. They difference in size between the medium and large is very odd. I guess I am in between sizes but cant wear either medium or the large. I will be returning the medium as well.

Hey AnneMarie, thank you for the review. We checked on the garment measurements for these pants and it looks like the waist on the medium measures in at 16.5" laying flat, where the large is 18". We're not sure what part of the pants didn't fit right, but we'd be happy to suggest alternative pairs and send over measurements if you need them.
