True To Size

Well designed and manufactured.

the small is a little long for someone who is 5'9".

I started buying Patagonia before it became so style-conscious

I bought this Powder Town thing hoping to replace a well-worn Patagonia hard shell that I've had for over 25 years (it's still serviceable but looks a bit rough for in-town use). This new shell is trendy in that it lacks most of the pockets of the old shell and is cut MUCH slimmer -- I like to layer the shell with a down vest and this 202... Read More3 shell will just about do that (but only because the 2022 vest is cut slimmer, too!) The shell doesn't have a two-way front zip so wearing it while driving will be a pain. And the sleeves are about an inch too long for me which, with the spacing of the velcro fasteners, means that I'll have to fuss with adjusting the velcro every time I put the shell on. IMO the main zipper is not sturdy enough (it's quite fine and the water-proof seal makes it difficult to use). This is a complaint I have about many of the Patagonia items I own -- the main zips are often too fine and, over a few years, become unusable. As I said at the top, I was hoping to replace an old hard shell with this purchase. I'm not certain that I've succeeded and this Powder Town shell may be heading back to Patagonia -- for the price I fear that it has too many issues (especially the sleeve length and puny, one-way zipper) that will annoy me every time I wear it.

Really good ski jacket

Before this jacket, I had really only used mountaineering style hard shells for skiing, because they are so weatherproof. I am impressed with this jacket and the powder town pants as well. They are lightweight but still hold back all the mountain weather very well, which also allows for a very nice effortlessness in movement that I really appreciat... Read Moree when Im skiing. The features, zippers, pocket layout, and all the other details are very well designed. The fit seems large but I appreciate that as well because I am able to layer anything underneath, including very full loft, large down layers. Cant say enough good things about the powder town line.

Nice shell

Waterproof and I enjoy the lichen design.

Great shell

The new Powder Town is much lighter, but provides just as much protection as my previous Patagonia shell, which I used for many years and is now in the recycling stream.

Winter Perfect

The all round winter jacket for all types of skiing. It is a must for casual wear and hitting the dinner circuit. Dont leave home without it, the slopes or otherwise.

Great shell

Love this jacket. Big enough to layer, lots of pockets wind and water proof comfortable

December 12, 2022

All the features I was after

Bought to replace a warn out gore tex shell, like the fit and has all of the ski features I was after. Have not skied in it yet, looking forward to it. Love the weight and fabric feel.

Perfect shell

Easily the best waterproof/windproof shell that I have owned. It goes well in a professional setting, or meeting friends for drinks. Very warm! The only thing I could add is to expand the colors available. Something brighter and more brilliant than just black, navy blue, or grey.

This jacket exceeded my expectations. Very breathable, yet wind and water resistant. Great product!
