    Powder Bowl Jacket

    Coffee tastes better in a frost-covered car on your way to snagging first chair, and the fire feels just a little cozier after a long day of blazing your way to fresh tracks and knee-deep snow. A long day on the snow isn't complete without a trusty shell, and the Patagonia Powder Bowl steps right in as a high-performing go-to for those who get out early and often. Designed with a two-layer Gore-Tex membrane and a durable recycled polyester shell, this jacket keeps you bone-dry when you're lucky enough to be graced with a heavy powder dump. You've got a helmet compatible hood that quickly goes up when it starts to really come down, and underarm vents to quickly expel heat after you work up a sweat on some powdery tree runs. For the deepest of days you've got an adjustable powder skirt to keep the snow where it belongs, and an array of pockets to hold all of your on-mountain essentials. 

    • Rip your favorite runs day after day in this reliable shell
    • Two-layer Gore-Tex keeps you totally dry when the snow is flying
    • Underarm vents help you cool down when you bootpack to fresh lines
    • Helmet-compatible hood lets you stay dry and protected all at once
    • Adjustable powder skirt lets you bounce through powder without worry
    • Mesh lining wicks moisture to keep you comfortable and dry
    • Media compatible chest pocket lets you jam out on the snow
    • Hand pockets hold trail maps and lift snacks
    • Item #PAT02LR

    Sleeves Way too Long

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: XL & Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    The XL fit in the shoulders and length but the sleeves were about 6" too long so I ordered the large it fit more like a slim fit jacket and the sleeves were still too long. I have XL Marmot, North face jackets and have never had this issue. I am disappointed the red color was exactly what I wanted and the jacket was what I wanted it just has vary long sleeves. I guess if it was available in a short version it may work. For now I'm just out 20-30 dollars in freight

    Beautiful jacket, but way too long

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I've wanted this jacket for a long time. I bought a medium, just like my other Patagonia puffy jackets. It fits great in the chest, shoulders and arms, but it is way too long. It covers my entire butt and upper thighs. Imagine walking and skiing in a miniskirt.

    Great Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 171lbs

    Last winter was my first season skiing - so this is my first ski jacket. I love this thing. Lots of pocket space for all the essentials. Great for laying with my Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket during the freezing cold but breathable enough to wear alone during Spring skiing. The only thing that I was let down by is the pocket on the left sleeve - it is great in theory for trail maps and such but is almost impossible to close with just one hand, so you'll need to take of your glove/mittens or grab a friend to help you.

    Very Good Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    This is a great jacket; however, like most high end ski or climbing jackets, it was made for someone of a much slimmer build.

    I am a bit on the "thick' side; this is a great wearing jacket, but is "snug" about the abdomen. It will be hard to fit more than one or two thin layers underneath.

    Otherwise, this is a great Jacket!

    For those powder hounds!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    Warm, comfortable, waterproof, windproof, stylish with plenty of pockets. Can easily wear a base and a down under this shell. The hood is sized well enough to fit a helmet. By putting it on you can just tell it really is built to last. Bonus that it comes in bright colors to make it easier to spot on the mountain.

    For those powder hounds!

    Great bang for the buck

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    This Shell was incredible. It has the incredible build quality and craftsmanship we all know and expect form Patagonia. This jacket is wind proof, waterproof and just plain awesome. I wore it in rainy conditions while skiing and though soaked on the surface, it kept me completely dry and warm all day.

    The sealed seam pockets make for confidence with keeping your stuff from being lost. The internal phone and key pocket near the stomach makes life much easier, and keeps your phone out of harms way.

    As a snowboarder, I found the length to be adequate to cover my booty, and the the cut to be modern cool, yet classic styling. The hood fits over my ski helmet comfortably, and does not take away from my ability to turn my head.

    Solid Shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    Fantastic shell jacket from Patagonia! It's actually a bit heavier and burlier than I expected when I wore it, but that's not a bad thing! I wore it on several deep powder days and flew through some trees with branches hitting the jacket, and there wasnt even a scratch! IT has a lot of great pockets for your pass, goggles, phone, keys, wallet, you name it! I really like the fit of the medium although I'm usually a small in most ski jackets. One thing I would improve on the jacket is the zippers. The string they have on them is really small and hard to grip with gloves on. so maybe something a bit easier to grab would be a nice improvement. Other than that, it's a burly, reliable shell that will keep you dry on the deepest days.

    Has only gotten better

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I got a Powder Bowl jacket around 2009 that is still great today, and ten years later, it's only gotten better. The 2019 model is lighter, has a more tailored fit (not tight but there isn't any excess material where there shouldn't be), and it has all the pockets you could need. Including fleece lined hand warmer pockets which my older jacket didn't have. Also, the shape of the collar is much more accommodating for thicker neck gaiters so things don't get too tight around the face when you're zipped all the way up.

    Best ski jacket ever

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

    This is now my favorite ski jacket I have ever owned. The shell and gore-tex keeps you nice and dry while the little bit of mesh linings adds just the right amount of warmth.

    Whistler tested

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I wish I had skied in Whistler this winter, but a close friend did and here is his feedback on this jacket: This jacket has been a life changer for me. The powderbowl takes Gore-tex to a whole new level, I spent 2 days in torrential rain pour in Whistler, B.C. And never had a drop of water underneath this jacket. It is definitely a shell so don’t expect any insulation when you’re purchasing this item, but I was quick to comment on its windbreaking capability. 60+ mph doesn't matter, the wind or moisture won’t affect your warmth in this jacket.

    pretty nice jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    The jacket was nice to wear out and about. It was very comfortable and looked nice. The 2_layer Gore-Tex would have been sure to keep me dry had I worn it on-hill. The only thing that I can think of that would be a downside of the jacket is that when wearing my bibs, the jacket was really tight around the waist. I wish that it had a bit more of a loose fit around the waist of the coat. If you're looking for a nice jacket to wear around this would be a good option.

    I'm 5'10", 160lbs with a slender build. Debating between Medium and Small. Usually end up with Small in about everything I buy since I don't like a lot of excess bulk. But I would like to be able to wear a puffy underneath this for really cold days. Any advice?

    Best Answer

    Hi Tom,

    It sounds like you could get away with a small, but this is definitely built for you to wear as a medium, especially with your height. You would look really similar to the model shown, which is just perfect for a ski jacket. It should fit looser than a rain jacket. Since this is for skiing, you want to have room to move and some length to protect you from the snow. The small will be restrictive, even in a T shirt.

    I'm 6'3", 40" suit size, 35.5" sleeve length, but fairly skinny at 165 lbs - I know the last gen ran a bit long: would I be best served by a medium or a large in this shell? Planning to wear with form fitting insulation/base layers.

    I would go with the Large just in case! That way you can layer even more if necessary. I am a tad bit shorter than you and tried on the large ad thought that it was almost perfect! We can set up a return for you if you end up still being undecided!
