Here's what others have to say...

Is the fabric noisy?

For a hard shell the Piolet is actually pretty quiet.

can I use it for hiking to mountain 6000m


didn't keep me dry

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I bought this specifically for a backcountry ski trip to Canada - wet, spring conditions. This jacket didn't work out for these kind of conditions. I ended up layering with a softshell underneath for extra protection against the wet snow.

Just returned it. Really disappointed.

What is the center back length of a medium?



  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

The Patagonia Piolet Jacket in Jeweled Berry is fabulous. The craftsmanship, breathability, durability and the color is excellent. Fit is great with plenty of room for movement without constriction. Hood fits well. Great neck coverage. Fits well over the Super cell Jacket for skiing and / or snow shoeing. Would definitely recommend.

Does this Jacket have a powderskirt? Does it have clips or anything to attach to snow pants?

Best Answer


While the Patagonia Piolet jacket can be used for a variety of sports including powder skiing, it was designed as more of a technical jacket. It does not have a powder skirt and does not have any special connection points for integrating it with a pant.

As an alternative I would suggest the Patagonia Powder Bowl Jacket.

This jacket is great! I wanted a more technical rain jacket and this one fit perfectly. It will be great for winter if I layer or great for summer because of the under arm vents. This jacket fits a little slim but thats what I like about it.
