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.

Durability Issues

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 175 lbs

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
