Required wear when you visit to the white room.

The Patagonia Men's Powslayer is the jacket you'll want when you're slashing pow turns through truly bottomless conditions. Its three-layer Gore-Tex Pro shell with fully taped seams will keep you dry during those days when you spend the majority of your time gasping for breath between prolonged visits to the white room. And since the deepest stashes are often found between the trees, the super durable 40-denier nylon ripstop face will withstand heavy wear and tear when you're hunting down untracked lines between Mt. Baker's pine boughs and Hokkaido's dense stands of ash trees.

The Powslayers have a relaxed fit to keep them comfortable whether you're riding in the backcountry or spinning laps in the resort. Two underarm vents let you lose heat quick before you sweat through your mid- and baselayers. An integrated powder skirt fits comfortably over compatible Patagonia pants, while the adjustable hem, hood, and cuffs ensure that can seal out the elements when high winds threaten to blow all that blower powder away. The pocket configuration of the Powslayer works well for resort and backcountry riding with pockets for a pass, skins, and media players all easily accessible.

Worth the price

Awesome jacket. It isn't cheap but it's worth the price, especially considering that it comes with a lifetime warranty.
The fit is new school, long and roomy without being baggy. I would say it runs a bit large, as do most Patagonia products in my opinion. I am 5'11", 200 lbs, with broad shoulders (78" wingspan), 34" waist and I think the jacket fits me perfectly, albeit a bit large. I prefer my ski jacket a little long and roomy and this fits the bill. It leaves room for layering (can comfortably wear a down jacket underneath without feeling like the Michelin man) and is long enough to cover my rear end when standing.
As far as the tech features, I can't think of anything they've missed. Everything is really well thought out, from the layout of the pockets to the minimalist powder skirt. Normally I hate powder skirts on jackets as I find them uncomfortable and that they mess up the fit, however I don't even notice this one is there and yet it keeps the snow out.
Obviously the 3L pro gore shell is top of the line, I have skied from bell to bell in an absolute blizzard and stayed dry, even Tahoe storms that are on the warm/wet side.
The hood is large enough to cover my size XL Smith helmet, which is nice on storm days. I will say one drawback if you are a snowboarder, it doesn't really work to wear the hood while riding if you are standing sideways. When skiing and facing straight down the hill it works fine, however it is uncomfortable to stand sideways and try to turn your head to look downhill with the hood on over a helmet.
What else to say? I couldn't design a better high-end ski shell myself. Love this jacket and can't recommend highly enough.

This jacket is constructed VERY well! It's a highly technical jacket that doesn't look the part. Also, it doesn't feel like you're wearing a tarp as is sometimes the came with other Gore 3L jackets. I don't typically store things in the pockets of my outerwear, but if I did this jacket isn't short on pockets.

My one concern is with the length. The jacket seemed pretty long for a medium, which I didn't expect given the fit of my other Patagonia jackets/shirts.

Bottom line - I HIGHLY recommend this jacket for the resort rider or backcountry traveler.
