Love this Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I got this jacket 2 seasons ago, and it is still in just as good of shape as it was when i first bought it. It started to lose its waterproof-ability and i washed it in some gear wash and back to new! whether you're skiing in freezing cold dry snow or rain, this jacket will keep you dry. I have even used it as a rain jacket on a trip to Europe during the winter. Patagonia makes a killer product and their warranty is hard to beat. If anything happens to the jacket you just send it in and they will replace it for free. I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone who is looking for a good waterproof jacket. It's the best you'll find

Still Awesome

I own an older version of this jacket, pre-gore tex, made of Patagonia's H2NO. I recently picked up a new version of this jacket. I loved the previous version, and it held up incredibly well skiing trees, taking out branchess, etc. I only bought the new one because I wanted a nice waterproof black jacket.

The new one is equally great, they switched to Gore-tex and it has proven plenty waterproof. They also eliminated a chest pocket, I'm still undecided about that. I like pockets, but it does clean up the look of the jacket a bit. The new fabric has also held up well to a winter of abuse. I ski a lot of tree's so lesser fabrics start to show wear pretty quickly from hitting branches. This one still looks great.

As for warmth, I usually layer a fleece under it. For really cold days (single digits or below zero) I throw a Down Sweater under it instead of a fleece.

Sizing - I'm 6' 180lbs and the Medium fits well. I would definitely say it's an athletic cut though. My only complaint is how the powder skirt hangs up sometime when I first put the jacket on. But the way it integrates with Patagonia pant's is a huge plus, so I'm willing to deal with it.

It's not quite perfect, but I'd still reccomend it. Especially if you have a pair of patagonia pants you can pair with it for skiing in deep stuff.

Thanks for posting size, weight and height. Too many reviews leave this out.

I am 6' 210lbs (wishing I was 180). I was thinking about buying this jacket w/o trying it on.

My usual size is XL. Once in a while a Large will fit, and since you are wearing a Medium, 30 lbs lighter, and mentioned athletic cut - I am wondering if I try L or stick with XL.

Bomber shell, few minor bugs

Got this jacket at the beginning of this season and it's a fantastic shell, especially for on-area, foul weather days. Most days between 15-30 degrees F I can get away with a base layer, a light merino shirt/sweater and this shell. When it's colder I'll add a fleece or a ultralight down shirt.
When it's super cold and windy, like at the top of the Continental Divide, in January, I'll toss a down sweater underneath and then I'm toasty to almost any temperature. With big pit vents it's easy to regulate heat and moisture.
Speaking of moisture... the fleece lined collar is fantastic. It's warm and comfortable and even on super-cold days it doesn't get soaked with condensation. It stays soft and warm all day long.
It's a burly shell with lots of stash pockets. Some reviewers have complained about it having too many pockets, but to that I say, "then buy a different jacket."
I love having well-designed and properly located separate pockets for gear, keys, snacks, shades, goggles, iPhone, and GoPro remote.
Now for the minor complaints:
It's roomy in the shoulders but a little tight in the waste. I'm 5'7" and about 170 so I'm stocky, but it does feel tighter than it should around the powder skirt, even when I'm not snapping the powder skirt. It's not uncomfortable, but it looks a little odd to me.
Another slight complaint is that the hood really doesn't fit a helmet very well. I have a pretty low-pro helmet but the hood barely fits over it, and when the hood is up it's not comfortable as it pulls the jacket in all directions.l The hood is easily removed, tho, so when it's not dumping or raining it can go.
Last minor gripe is with the zippers. No bottom zipper, which is sometimes nice to unzip on the lift to vent or to paint the snow yellow. Also, the pit zips are difficult to zip and unzip by yourself.
So that's the full skinny. Overall it's a great jacket and I am very glad to have it. I'd recommend it, but just be aware of some of the caveats.

I just bought this jacket and am very impressed. I am 6' 2" and 180 lb.. I bought a medium, and it fits great. I have no complaints. The quality is what I would expect from Patagonia.

My 160lb, 6' husband found the medium to be too big in the chest and too long in the arms. It's a great jacket though. I have the women's version.

I need sizing help.
I'm 6'1" 205,and usually wear a large with Patagonia. But I hear this jacket has an athletic cut. I prefer it to be a little bit loose for layering. So, should I go for a Large or an XL? Thanks.

Responded on

Go with the XL. I went with an XL at 5'7" 190lbs and it's baggy but not too much. Very nice jacket and quality as always with Patagucci

Great Jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had this jacket for the past two ski seasons and I love it! The Gore-Tex keeps me dry all day. I'm 6'3 225lbs and it fits me great. It is on the more expensive end, however its worth the money.

Responded on

what do you wear underneath to keep u warm?

Responded on

I usually just wear a mid-weight base layer and maybe a fleece vest and I'm fine. Anything heavier and I overheat.

Good but not the best

I`m surprised about a few reviews saying the jacket runs small, I think it is actually true for the size and has enough space for layering, it`s much bigger than my OR mentor jacket. I`ve used this jacket on snowing days, melting snow spring days and even rain. The jacket is very waterproof, but not perfect on breathability, I usually need to open the pit zips in the chair lift. The features are nice and it has a lot of pockets, maybe too much for my taste. THe powder skirt if great and will attach to any patagonia pants, I use it with the powder bowl pants and they work well together. A few bad things, the collar is too small and I can`t zip it all the way, the hood is somehow useless if you use helmet because it is not helmet compatible, it go over the helmet but it is very hard to first put it over a medium size helmet and also keep it over the helmet. The cuffs are large enough to to use gauntlet gloves under the cuffs, I`ve used hestra xcr mitt under the cuff with no problems, can`t do that with the Mentor jacket. I wouldn`t pay full price on this jacket but definitely a good piece if you get it on sale, I just had a few days on it, but it looks like a bomb proof piece, I had some really bad falls and no sign of wear/tear.

Powder Bowl Jacket

Haven't had a chance to wear this on the slopes yet. Been wearing it around town as a rain/cold weather jacket. I wear a large and this jacket is roomy, which will be great for layering when I ski. It's a definite step up from the Patagonia Snowshot. Look forward to see how it handles the wind at Heavenly. The gortex material seems rugged and I would imagine can handle all conditions well.

Great Jacket

I'm 5'9" 180lbs and the Medium fits like a glove. Long jacket and pow skirt prevent snow from getting in. Gore Tex keeps me bone dry. Jacket is great for layering, light weight, and well constructed. Patagonia didn't disappoint with this one.

Nice Jacket for backcountry and/or warm and wet days on a ski area

I got this jacket specifically for my backcountry kit. It is pretty light, and the GoreTex keeps you nice and dry and the wind out. It also has a pretty slim fit, especially for a jacket. I'm 5 10", 150 lbs. and the small fits me absolutely perfect. The only downside to that is it doesn't leave too much room for layering, but a base layer or 2 and my patagucci down vest fits just fine underneath.

That being said, I would not recommend this jacket for skiing groomers on really cold days at a ski area or any situation where you aren't generating a good amount of body heat and would need lots of insulation or lots of layering. The fit is a bit tight I guess but it suits my build fine. If you are thick or lift lots of weights I would definitely try a couple sizes on before ordering it. I rated the jacket 4 stars because I haven't had the chance to test it in a super heavy storm yet.

I have last year's Powder Bowl. Guess they added Gore-Tex this year? How much difference between this and Patagonia's H2No which is what I think they used before?

Great jacket, a bit too small

Excellent quality and design. The only problem was that the fit was not quite right for me. At 6-5 240 the XXL was the perfect length but it was a bit too constricting through the back/shoulders as I prefer a looser fit. Returned without any problems.

Trying to find a new jacket/shell for the ski season. Looking for something breathable and not to hot. How does the powder bowl fair?

Best Answer Responded on

The Powder Bowl is a great jacket, but has a hung mesh liner for the interior. If breathability and not being too hot are your priorities a 3 layer jacket like the Patagonia Primo Jacket might be a better choice. Both are Gore-Tex and both are awesome. Hope that helps Rick.

Does anyone know what size I should get if I'm 6'1 160lb?

Responded on

It depends if you plan on wearing a lot of layers underneath. If you layer a lot, then I would recommend the Large.

If you never need any more than a thin layer between your base and shell, then the Medium will probably work for you. It'll be a relatively fitted feel (not baggy), but it should fit just fine.
