They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

Great ski shell.
Im tall and pretty thin and this jacket has arms that are long enough for me without being extremely baggy. It is loose enough to allow for many layering options from the triple up to the base layer and jacket. Looks sharp, I get tons of comments. Super water reisistant. Best heavy shell Ive had ever!
Exactly what I needed
This is the first dedicated snowboard jacket Ive owned in quite some time. I was hesitant to spend this much as I only get out a handful of times each year, but after a recent trip out west I couldnt be happier I went for it. Im around 62 200lbs and the XL was perfect for me; I might have fit in a large as well, but I wanted something that fit a ti... Read Moreny bit large both for layering and in length of sleeves and waist, as I hate when a jacket like this is too short in those areas. The XL is a perfect length for me in both places while also not looking too wide or baggy in the waist or under the arms. Its stylish enough to wear around the city as well, which I appreciate. We had some cold weather in the teens with wind and some snow showers and I was perfectly comfortable with a just a base layer and my nano puff underneath, it kept the wind and snow out all day. Theres plenty of pockets inside and out and I love the powder skirt as well. This jacket meets the fantastic quality Ive come to expect from Patagonia and is just another reason why Ill keep coming back to them for my bigger gear purchases. You really do get what you pay for. Its also just encouraging knowing youre supporting a brand that is doing so much for the places these pieces of gear help us enjoy. Highly recommend this jacket.
Great Coat but Slightly Chilly
I purchased the jacket strictly for skiing. I ski in the Northeast and the Mountains are Cold. When the wind picks up and days are cold, I find I need a much warmer base layer. I also have a snow shot jacket which is much warmer. I assumed they would be similar in warm but are not.
Seems like a fantastic jacket but runs exceedingly large. I've noticed over the years that Patagonia's clothing is getting bigger and bigger and with less and less shape. Stuff is big and boxy. A medium used to fit perfectly. As did 32 inch pants/shorts. I now get a small in almost everything and 30-31 inch.
Great for Winter in the Cascades
I have used this shell the past several seasons for winter adventures in the Cascades (at the ski area and in the backcountry) where precipitation can be a mix of rain, snow, and everything in between; this jacket sheds it all allowing you to shred all day. You can close it all up tight (adjustable hood, velcro wrist closures, powder skirt, tight z... Read Moreippers) for those times when the winds pick up and the precipitation turns liquid or open it up to dump the heat when skinning up becomes an aerobic workout. This jacket provides the perfect combination of protection from the elements while maintaining breathability and function. Pockets are well thought out with interior drop in pocket, zippered interior pocket with key clip, chest pocket with a secondary pocket inside and headphone port, wrist pocket, and dual hand pockets with zippers. Note that this jacket is not insulated--you customize your insulation with other garments.
This is a Ski/Snowboarding Jacket
I bought this as a shell to protect against snow, rain or wind on cold days when hiking, walking outdoors, going to football games, and similar activities. While it is a great jacket, it is specifically cut for skiing and snowboarding. Hood is very large to fit over a ski helmet. Arms are very long. Nothing negative about the jacket, but I returned...

Lower shell body Snugness compared to older Patagonia shell.
2 Days of skiing: Good weather shell. I was well layered underneath. Arm/shoulder freedom of movement good. The Bad: Patagonia shells tend to run long in body length. I also have started wearing Bibs and use hip pads early in season or when icy conditions. The lower portion of the shell body would not allow me easy bending and sitting movements wit... Read Morehout my pulling up lower portion of shell towards my waist. First impression is there is not enough looseness in lower shell body. In the future I will try both removing protective hip padding and wear ski pants as opposed to bibs to see if the lower shell body feel less restrictive. I am short waisted and should really look for a shorter waisted shell especially now since I've committed to wearing bibs last season. My previous Patagonia shell had more freedom of movement with the bibs and bending or sitting was not a problem.
Love this jacket - the cut allows some flexibility in base layer choices (i.e., you can go with a standard tighter-fitting base layer, or opt for a vest or sweatshirt without issue), and the attention to detail (pocket placement, powder skirt, adjustability of hood) put into the jacket's design are subtle yet noticeable improvements to most gr...

Another great piece from Patagonia
Have not had a chance to put it through its paces. Last Patagonia shell saw Jackson Hole and performed flawlessly , this will likely be paired with a fleece when I get a chance. Admittedly got on sale so even though I would have preferred a L size but being tall and with layers an XL for physical activity gives arm length for climbing and great for... Read More ski season.
Medium or Small?
I really struggled between the M and the S. I am 5'10" and 175lbs. Neck 15.5". Arms 32/33. Waist 32-34. I tried both on. The small fit snugly but was just too tight around the waist and mid-section. I had to suck it in a bit to zip and then it sat really tight on my hips. It would have been hard to add layers. This may not be a probl... Read Moreem if you have more of a flat stomach. I went with the medium which was a slightly looser fit, although still comfortable. But, it took some going back and forth. If you are on the slimmer side the small may work. Medium fit great and made me feel I'd have room to layer up and move around while skiing. The jacket itself is a great shell - well designed, great pocket space, well thought out. Once you nail the fit you'll love it.
Spent the past two weeks in Teton Valley with a mix of skiing and snowboarding, both backcountry and resort riding at Targhee, as well as plenty of time just playing in the snow in 0 degree weather. Great product, great fit, easy access to pockets and all your needs, hood is fantastic with a helmet on...no complaints!
This jacket is awesome. Outer fabric is soft yet feels like it can take a beating. Well thought out design. No moisture is getting through this thing. Only used it for two days on the mountain so far, but I am looking forward to years of use with this thing. It will definitely be my “go-to” for all things snow for years to come. Bomber!
Nice jacket the sleeves are a bit long.
Been wearing Patagonia gear for 30 years. In the last few years it seems that the fit is changing. Not sure why that is. The product is rock solid but I find I need to make sure and try it on first. This sounds like an obvious statement but with so many purchases being made on line buying a similar garments from the same manufacturer is a bit of a ... Read Morecrap shoot.
This jacket has everything you would expect from Patagonia, quality material, well thought out functionality at a very good price. In the short time having this jacket I really like wearing it. I’m looking forward to using it this winter with all my different Patagonia base layers, nano puffs and down sweaters better sweaters.
Its a slick shell that
Its a slick shell that is well constructed and handsome. Arms and torso are a bit long for my size, but otherwise fit is good. Idk what I was expecting but its a little underwhelming. I hope that the stoic design lends itself to durability. Time will tell. I am currently happy with my purchase.
So Good So Far
Half a season in and no complaints. Good fit, pockets, and venting. I went with Powder Bowl for thicker fabric as I spend most of my time in the trees. Already had a few jousting blows taken in stride. No reason to think it won't last as long as my last Patagonia jacket, which was an insane 15+ years.
I almost died in this
I have a special bond with this jacket because of the closed double black I skied on accident with demos while hungover. Lost my poles, dinged the demos to hell, almost died. The jacket worked well though, feels like a big blanket and the insulation is great. Nothing brings you closer with your gear than being scared shitless.
Great Shell for resort and backcountry
Great weight, zippers, neck and hood combination. Pockets are functional. Sleeves are a great length for winter sports (no one wants snow in their wrists). Room to layer underneath, but not too baggy - good for British Columbia in the negatives and California skiing as well. Hood is perfect - no need to bother with extra zippers to zip it off or tu...

Fantastic Ski Jacket
This is an amazing ski jacket. The fit is almost perfect - not too big and baggy, but there's enough room to comfortably wear a warm insulating layer. My only issue is that the arms run a little long (I've noticed this with most, but not all, Patagonia jackets). So far the jacket has held up really well in 10 days of skiing. It's bee...

WOW WOW POW...DER
I love this jacket. It is great skiing shell. I wear the Nano Air Puff jacket underneath and it is perfect for the Pacific Northwest winter weather.

This jacket is simply the best. The goretex covers the entire jacket and allows it to be as light as possible, while insulating and cooling. The outer shell is so tough and durable, ive had plenty of knife drops on it and nothing has torn. The removable hood is a great feature as I normally wear a cowboy hat. The pockets are in all the right places... Read More and this jacket has so much movement, it allows for it to be a work jacket as well.
