Snow-shedding armor for another chest-deep crusade ... without the weight of iron.
Like the heavy, hammered armor of history's noble knights, the Patagonia Snowshot Jacket equips you for battle against a cold and punishing foe. But instead of deflecting spear heads and lance blows, this shell's waterproof breathable H2No membrane and DWR coating block the frozen advance of winter. Since the glory of slaying wanton pow stashes is your quest, this fortified shell also features a powder skirt and an adjustable hood.
- Two-layer polyester shell with a waterproof breathable H2No membrane and Deluge DWR coating repels falling snow, dripping chairs, and slushy falls to keep you dry and comfortable
- Brushed tricot mesh lining adds a tiny bit of insulation in the upper body, sleeves, and shoulders while breathable polyester lining in the hood, lower body, and powder skirt aids sweat vapor movement and enables smooth layering
- Articulated elbows and a relaxed fit enable comfortable, unrestricted skiing, riding, or touring
- Underarm zip vents dump excess heat as you hike
- Adjustable, removable, and helmet-friendly hood with a laminated brim provides increased storm protection while fleece on the chin and back of neck add insulation and dry quickly
- Removable powder skirt seals out the snow during magnificently deep days
- Powder skirt attaches to compatible Patagonia snow pants (sold separately) for a seamless barrier against the deep snow
- Two zippered hand pockets and a zippered chest pocket with a cord port hold your on-mountain essentials
- Internal drop-in pockets hold your goggles and gloves at the base bar, and an internal chest stash pocket holds your cash and ID

Didn't work for me.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
Jacket is very nice feature and craftsmanship wise. Nice details like the gussets on the wrist closure. I just couldn't get along with the fit. I'm 5'8 & 155 lbs. The medium fit perfect in the shoulders, but was huge everywhere else. Really wide and boxy through the body and baggy everywhere. Went way past my bum. I'd attribute all of these to the relaxed fit. The collar is very tall and very stiff. Would be nice to block wind and powder, but was pretty annoying when it isn't needed. The jacket also was pretty heavy for a shell. It's a great jacket, just not the fit I was after.
Is this a 3-in-1 jacket?
Is this a 3-in-1 jacket?
It's not, but there is a Patagonia 3 in 1 Snowshot Jacket available from Backcountry.
This jacket will do you fine, I use this skiing Jackson Hole, WY. I'm totally happy with it. If you use layer it tech/non-cotton clothing you are are fine. Insulated jackets suck when the sun bakes you.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Can't go wrong with anything from Patagonia, this actually is my back up jacket to my Burton AK 2L (Money is no object go for the AK gear, I got that jacket dirt cheap brand new), a lifetime warranty does you no good when it fails in winter.
This Snowshot jacket I enjoy quite a bit, it does the job well when I don't where my AK jacket.
Have any tall skinny folks used this jacket?...
Have any tall skinny folks used this jacket? I'm 6' 4 and 170 lbs. Hoping the large will fit without too much extra room around the waist and with long enough arms. If anyone is close to my dimensions could you comment on the fit?
I'm 6'2" and 165, and Patagonia size medium is best for me.
This is the best jacket I have owned.It fights the cold real good don't worry about getting wet it like a wet suit I give a thumb up.👍👍👍👍👍👍

On an average day, how many extra layers would be needed under this?
For a typical day I would wear a Capilene 3 zip neck and an R1 Hoody under the Snowshot Jacket. For most temps that will do just fine. If it's super cold you could add a Nano Puff vest, or replace the fleece with a Down Sweater.
