Super solid bib pant that handles the worst winter storms all day every day.

On the deepest days, you can hardly even see your legs. Slip them inside the Patagonia Powslayer Bib Pant so you know they'll be protected from the constant onslaught during waist-deep turns. Thanks to the guaranteed waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex Pro Shell, you can drop into the deepest lines again and again without thinking about moisture getting in or sweat staying in.

  • Tough, durable nylon shell features a three-layer waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Pro Shell and DWR coating to seal out all falling snow
  • Reinforced panels feature tougher nylon (70D) to prevent wear and tear during hundreds of laps through the trees
  • Articulated knees, gusseted crotch, and relaxed fit enable comfortable, unrestricted skiing, riding, or touring
  • Zippered thigh vents and the bib's zipper with top snap let you draw in cool air to bring down your temperature and expel excess body heat
  • Adjustable internal tabs in the back waist secure the pant as you drop cliffs or ski bumps
  • Stretch leg gaiters with gripper elastic block out the snow
  • Bib design with drop-seat seams and front zipper prevent any snow from finding its way to your baselayer
  • Slim, watertight zips reduce weight and keep out all mountain moisture
  • Zippered hand pockets and thigh cargo pockets hold on-mountain essentials
  • Reinforced kick patches withstand ski edges while you make kick turns in chutes or skin back up the ridge for seconds

tailored for short fat kids

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

i've wanted these pants for a long time. a really long time. i finally splurged this year, now that the price tag has come down a lot. i really want them to fit, and they need to fit(i tend to wear ski pants for at least 300days), but they just don't. i'm a 5'7", 135lb, girl. i'm shaped more like a 12year old boy(absence of childbearing hips), so generally buy guy's gear (also, girl gear is usually crap). as i find with most patagonia clothing, they fit huge. that aspect is totally fine for bibs. my main problem with the pant is that the legs are WAY too short. maybe it's a personal problem, but i don't like my pants riding around my top boot buckle. i lowered the bib straps a lot. saggy crotch, fine, long hair don't care. now the issue is that the back of the bibs are the same height as a normal pair of ski pants, making the fact that they are bibs obsolete. now i've basically just got a pair of pants, with suspenders, and a waistband that is way bigger than a normal pair of ski pants.
called patagonia. they informed me that they can add up to 4 inches to the inseam length, which would be enough for me. it'll cost $50 plus shipping, plus not having pants for 2-3weeks. still debating whether to do it or not, ordered some norronas for comparison.

Great Bib Pants

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love this great Bib Pants. I use them for skiing and touring, it's simply the best pants I used since many years. The last pants I used : Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib and Haglofs Guard pants.
I'm 1m72 cm, 80 kg and the medium fit's me very well.

Really great pant, except...

This pant lives up to almost every aspect of its billing. Well constructed, storm proof, and feature rich (gaiters, pockets, and adjustments).
The one failure - and it's a big one - is on the snaps at the top of the side zippers. Where the rest of the pant is very, very roomy, at the top of the side zips they are very snug, especially for the barrel-chested among us.
The problem this snugness creates is that when stretched the snaps don't unsnap, they stay snapped and rip out of the pant. This has happened twice. Once that button rips out the side zips come down on their own and the pants lose their overall fit.
I wish Patagonia would add some stretchy material on either side of the upper side zip. There's a great adjustment strap to cinch down the fit. An extra 1"-2" of room would extend the fit range of the pant and save a lot of pulled out snaps.

Pow Slayer has many flaws!

Powder Slayer Bib feedback:I purchased these bibs for a heli trip in BC and in general had been looking for a good bib. Fit was a bit looser than I like, but they were very light weight and overall comfortable. Day one I realized a major issue, the gaiters did not fit tightly around my ski boots. They were so loose that snow came up with ease and pretty much everywhere we stepped was knee deep so this caused me major problems in the back country. Could not have been more disappointed with Patagonia on this and myself for not checking before we were in the middle of the Canadian Rockies. The second day of the trip I had a small tear in the knee, so out came the duck tape. Patagonia also moved the loop for jackets to snap into to the middle, so now any snow skirt on the jacket you owned with clips on the side can't clip in. For a company that prides themselves in long lasting goods and not wasting what you have, it's odd that they make new products that won't work with their old ones.... Lastly, belt loops should have been on this product, especially since a lot of jackets won't clip to the bibs, if snow does get up over the bibs... and it does...., then a belt could prevent the snow from going down your legs and towards your boots, which already have snow in them due to the gaiters not fitting. A lot of potential here, but missed the boat by a mile on these. I guess the magazines that reviewed these and picked them as top gear never left the office to try them out.... Big fan of Patagonia, but couldn't be more disappointed with these. Dear Patagonia, when your ready to take another crack at these I am happy to help...

great bibs but not perfect

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Again, as my review for the jacket I don't get the hand pockets, they are completely useless and a waist of material! Cargo zippered pockets are great for maps, maybe goggle cloth, glove liner and things like that. Huge vents that help a lot when hiking! Two way front zipper is great, also the adjustable tabs to get a closer fit! The bibs seems to be a little on the short side, so they might not work for people that are taller than average for their weight. I wear a small and I'm 5'5" and the length is the shortest I would like to have, it could be a little bit longer, also I don't quite understand the fit of the cuffs, it looks like they are wider than the pants itself, I know this is common for ski pants, but maybe that wasn't necessary on a relaxed fit bibs. If you do like a more freeride relaxed fit, this is probably the best you can get, just small design details and this bibs would probably be perfect!

THE Powslayer

Slays pow like a champ. Unbelievably lightweight. I could not get over how incredibely light and tough they are. I scraped a tree branch hard and even have a light scrape on my skin but the pants did not rip or fray. These things are tough! Very pricey but certainly believe they will last a very long time. 6' tall and I went with the large. Fits sorta loose but not baggy. Comfortable for touring and free ride skiing. They breathe very well and have great ventilation.
Great work Patagonia!

awesome touring bib

I use these pants for splitboarding in the Wasatch and the rare resort day. About 30 days on them so far and they've definitely proven themselves. Pockets are perfect size for an avy notebook and pretty easy to access with gloves on. Bushwhacking during the early season snow pack when the brush is still out in full force isn't an issue, I've used my whippets for most of the early season tours and have yet to damage these things when there's an accidental graze. They're pricey but dump heat well and have a great fit around my snowboard boots. If your looking for a warm resort bib/pant these probably aren't for you.

Wallet Slayers

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Yes these bibs are SUPER pricey. I've skied two very cold days in them so far this season. For starters they are super light, feels like your wearing a light nylon sweat pants. Better layer appropriately. Tons of cool pockets and zippers! My only irritation is the snaps for the drop seat can come undone if you twist funny or bend over. The Zippers are snug and water tight and don't unzip but for this kinda money I'd like a beefier snap. PS I got mine for 1/2 price:) If I paid $600.00 I'd not be as enthused. This should excel in the BC situations where venting and weight matter more. I've got a dozen days on these pants and the snap has recently popped off and is gone so now they have to be sent back to Patty and probably wont have them for the rest of the season. That should NOT happen with a garment with this price tag! PERIOD! I've downgraded to 2 stars.
