    Have the last laugh against nasty winter weather in this Gore-Tex bib pant.

    In the face of projectile sleet or chest-high blower pow, the Patagonia Men's Powslayer Bib Pant gives you complete protection. This brand ambassador bib, revised from last year, sports a new design and Gore-Tex Pro fabric with even better breathability. The RECCO reflector is now embedded at the lower right leg. Whether you're charging big, deep lines in Chile or slogging through an unrelenting onslaught of winter's worst, the Powslayer will be your protector and savoir.

    Gore-Tex Pro combines three discrete layers to create a single fabric without slippage between the layers for long-lasting waterproof, breathable protection. Topped off with DWR finish to help water bead on the bib surface, the Powslayer ensures your legs don't get wet from the outside. If you're pulling a sled full of gear and the sun breaks through, external thigh vents unzip so you can cool down and not be wet (with sweat) on the inside.

    A gusseted crotch and articulated knees let you huck off a cliff or sidestep up a slope without fear of ripping your pants. The front zipper and drop seat give you easy relief, even when you're dangling over a chasm obscured by swirling snow. Belt loops let you drop the suspenders when you're hiking without also dropping your pants. Gaiters create a snow-resistant seal between the pant and your boot, and scuff guards protect the inside of the pant leg. You can create a virtual snowsuit by attaching the bib to the powder skirt on any Patagonia snow jacket. Four zippered pockets give you storage galore for a flask, energy gels and bars, and sunscreen, just in case.

    Great Pants!

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

    I'm a bigger guy for my height; the bib is a little snug in the belly, but it fits perfectly everywhere else. I've skied them for about a quarter of a season in bounds and out of bounds, and the only noticeable wear and tear is in the cuffs. I have definitely taken a few spills and scraped the pants across some rocky sections. They have held up really well so far. The pockets on the legs are large and the vents can be opened up all the way above the hips. I'd definitely recommend these pants.

    Functional and comfortable

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I don't think anyone can go wrong buying a bomber piece of technical outerwear that is 3L goretex Pro. The fit on these bibs are great. A little baggy, but that seems to be the new look these days. I was surprised to not see zippers on the cuffs, but the leg opening was made wide enough to go over any boot out there. The gaiter does a great job at keeping the snow out as well. I have experienced the cuff issue that the others below me have talked about, but I have experienced that in ANY pair of technical pants I have ever owned. If you don't accommodate for the length by rolling up the cuff, tucking it into your Wellies, or pulling the gaiter up over them, the way technical outwear is designed, you WILL get cuff wear unless you manage that on your own. No one wants to buy super expensive technical outwear wear and then feel like you are preparing for a flood and having the high water look with the cuffs coming to the top of your ankles... That could just be me though... My only complaint is the Vislon zippers are extremely stiff at times and the thigh vents have issues if you don't zip them in a very specific way for the zipper to clear the little flap of fabric at the end of the zipper. Other than that they are great. Once you go bibs, you never go back. Plenty of pockets, and belt loops if you need them.

    I am 5'8" 170lb with a fairly long torso and a 30" inseam and wear a medium across the board for the most part in Patagonia. The slim alpine fit stuff still fits well in a medium for me, just less room to layer underneath. The more relaxed fit still fits fine in a medium, just more room to layer or have that new school baggy look.

    Durability Issues

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

    The function is outstanding, but unless you are very easy on gear I wouldn't recommend these pants. Iv'e spent four longish days touring in these pants. They already have holes in the cuffs. They are not functionally affected yet but I would be surprised to get a full season of touring out of these pants. I purchased them at the Patagonia outlet and I am sure they will refund or replace them. For comparison I have toured in Patagonia Northwall softshells for two and a half seasons and the only holes present are from accidental crampon puncture.

    I'll try to remember to upload photos soon.

    Sorry to hear that! I would definitely agree that for a dedicated touring pant a softshell would be preferred. If you're shopping for a Patagonia bib style pant specifically, the Kniferidge would be a great choice:

    The softshell material and reinforced cuffs should help a lot around ski edges and crampons.

    The Powslayers are made to be a somewhat light weight gore-tex pro shell pant, hence the 40d face fabric. While this makes them super light and comfortable (while still very waterproof) the one compromise is some durability relative to other options. Of course, the other options will either be heavier and/or less waterproof. There's a whole lot of ins and outs when shopping the vast sea of ski pants these days, so if you have any more questions always feel free to hit up our customer service via phone or chat.

    I agree about the durability issues you've mentioned. I only have four days this season in these bibs (resort riding, not backcountry) and already a couple holes in the cuffs. The reinforced part on the inside of the ankle, no less! Not sure how they got there but my best guess would be a ski edge. I thought these pants were built to withstand that, especially in the reinforced cuffs? Pretty disappointed since these bibs are so $$$$$ and not sure if this would be covered by warranty?


      These are the best bibs I may ever wear in my life time, if you're tired of little to no ventilation, uncomfortable straps, poor waterproofing and sh***y fit. The search is over. Split boarding is so comfy in every aspect with these. no bunching up with your stride as you skin. the side zips are crucial for swass. 5 neat pockets, Couldn't be happier, worth every penny for a solid investment. I will recommend these to anyone that gets up to get down in the backcountry.

      Everything you want in a ski pant

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These bibs are awesome. First of all, they're bibs. So, the two most important aspect to ski pants is covered, comfort and snow-sealing. The pockets don't bind when hiking, but have ample room for everything you need.

      The fabric is incredible top-notch, resists weather and is beafy enough to plow through trees and rocks.

      The fit is roomy but not baggy, and the cut is geared for movement. These bibs are incredible. Can't go wrong.

      Great Patagonia Ski Bibs

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I was fortunate to be able to start testing the new Powslayer Bibs in January 2014 and have been thoroughly impressed with their fit, comfort, functionality and styling. From Chamonix to Alta, I've probably gotten at least 20 days in these bibs and they're great paired with the Powslayer Jacket. These bibs are just high enough to keep the snow out while still feeling light and comfortable. Considering that these are bibs, I really like the relaxed fit; loose and comfortable, yet not too baggy. I am 6'2" and wear a Large in the Powslayer Bibs and Jacket.

      Has the fit on these changed. I bought some last year. I'm 5'11 and 185#. I bought the Large and they were way too long in both the legs and torso. I exchanged for the Medium and they were too tight in the waist and chest. They seemed to be a very tall, slim fit. This description says relaxed fit, but that wasn't my experience last year.

      What's the opinion, these pants (Super Alpine Bibs) or the Powslayer Bibs? I will be spending this year tele ski-patrolling in the Northeast and doing some tours through Europe and the West. I am looking for a new pair of bibs after retiring old NorthFace's.

      Best Answer

      Hey Josh,

      Both are killer pants and both would do the job. I think the Super Alpine Bibs might be the better patrol bibs since they are not quite as loose fitting as these bibs. You might also find the full length zippers on the Super Alpine Bibs nice to have when you are setting a traverse or hiking for long periods of time. The Super Alpine Bibs also have 150 D nylon in high abrasion areas making them ideal for working in extreme conditions.

      Seeing as both pair of bibs are top of the line Patagonia gear you should be able to get years of use from either one. But the Super Alpine Bibs might just have a little more to offer with the full length zips and trimmer cut seeing that you will be using them day in and day out on the job and when your getting out for fun.

      I had problems with the cuff size on another non-ski-specific Patagonia pant, as they were difficult to get over my boot alpine boot. Since then I've bought two other pairs of Patagonia pants and have had no issues. The Super Alpine Bib may not have this problem, but it's something to be aware of.
