    Complement your passion to ride.

    The Patagonia Men's Powder Bowl Jacket is built for freedom and protection whether you're riding frontside steeps or chasing backcountry powder. A Gore-Tex shell gives this jacket waterproof and breathable protection, while water-resistant zippers and fully taped seams prevent a single snowflake from seeping in.

    The helmet-compatible hood is two-way adjustable with a laminated visor for optimal visibility in bad conditions. A tall collar protects your neck and face, even when the hood is down. When the snow gets deep, you can cinch the adjustable powder skirt to seal out cold snow. A webbing loop at the center back connects the skirt to compatible Patagonia snow pants. Underarm zippers help ventilate airflow when you're working up a sweat on the skintrack or bootpack.

    • A ski or snowboarding jacket for riding the resort or backountry
    • Gore-Tex shell with fully taped seams is waterproof and breathable

    Patagonia Powder Bowl Jacket

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Super solid 2 layer jacket. Plenty of pocket space and a nice hood that fits over your helmet. The powder skirt has a loop with snaps so you can hook it to a beltloop on your pants. Somewhat baggy fit.

    Great jacket built to last!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small

    Definitely sized differently, listened to the other reviews and sized down from the usual medium I wear in Patagonia. I have used to a couple times so far, nothing crazy but so far so good and I am glad I went with the small. One day was wet snow, jacket handled it no problem and kept me warm with a base layer. The other notable day was in the 40's I run hot so this and a t-shirt underneath was perfect. This is definitely a shell but does a good job covering you up and keeping you warm for those stormy days. Looking forward to more use.

    has everything goin for it

    ive used this jacket for a little more than a season now, and it will stand up to anything. has plenty of pockets, 100% waterproof, (i skied in a few rainstorms last season) and a super nice addition thats way more important than i thought is the little hole that comes out of the front chest pocket on the inside for you music cord. overall awesome jacket!

    nice jacket

    I got this coat a few days ago, I live in Maine and we haven't really had much cold weather yet but I have been out in a downpour with it and it performed very well. I was debating on whether to get a XL or L and am really glad I went with the large. It fits very nicely, and I can layer up no problem. I have put my Northface 550 goose down jacket under with ease. I am a big buy that normally wears a XL, but this jacket in Large fits me perfectly. Overall really happy with the jacket. Will repost after a winter of use and skiing to let you know how it did.

    This thing has it all, except the fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium.
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I liked this jacket, and wanted to love it. It has all of the pockets you could ask for including a large drop-in internal mesh pocket for goggles/skins. The powder skirt had it's own draw-string hem, which I found odd, located at the sides where you usually find the main hem adjustment on other shells. The main hem adjustment is towards the front of the shell and is NOT intuitive to use. When fully tiightened the shock cord drooped down in front. Patagucci's fit is for tall and lean folks, which I am not. But aside from the wonky hem adjustments, this jacket is a winner. It is roomy in a medium for me, so size down if you want the slim fit.

    Nice Jacket but Runs Large

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I bought a large jacket for me and a medium for my son. I wear a 42' jacket, 6' 1" and 185 pounds. I wear a large in all other jackets/shirts/fleece etc. This jacket is huge. I can easily wear my loaded skiing backpack under this jacket. I am keeping the medium for me, and will return the large to get a small for my son.

    Let it Snow

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

    My top recommendation, with every feature you need for a season on the mountain; waterproof, breathable, zip vents, adjustable hood, and a powder skirt keep you covered. Pair it with the Powder Bowl pants for the ultimate winter kit.

    Function and Steeze!

    This was my first true shell purchase and I love it! The H2No and GoreTex treatment beads water and snow so well that you can brush it off without worrying if it seeps through. I'm a big fan of the removable hood as well, I personally like to go hoodless. Pit vents keep you cool after big runs and when you need the protection, tighten the waist right from your pockets! All that with a powderskirt on top means you are ready to get deep!

    Pretty much a perfect jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 225lbs

    Light weight but can handle wind & wet conditions. I'm a Sierra rider so most of the conditions I'm in are very windy and wetter powder. This jacket handled the epic 2016-17 snow year perfectly. I prefer to layer under neath than have a heavier jacket. With a Nano Puff jacket underneath the Powder Bowl is the combo I've been searching for years. Even better is the hood on this jacket can go over a helmet (which everyone wears now). On the windy chair lift rides that is a big difference. the high neck zipped fully up is a great feature to cover your nose & mouth on chair lift rides too. Jacket does run long. All the pockets are standard to other jackets, but Patagonia's overall quality is far superior

    nice jacket but runs large

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    Bought this at the end of the season so I have not worn it yet. Seems to be a very rugged and well made shell. The size is quite a bit larger than other Patagonia jackets I have worn, maybe this is the design. All said I am quite happy with the purchase.

    Awesome Shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Great jacket all around. Fit is perfect, slim but not too tight. I bought a small for a more streamlined fit. One of the only brands that fit my shoulders in a size small. Most other brands were too tight in the shoulders. I have 41 inch chest and 31 waist so smalls are usually too tight and restrict shoulder movement and mediums are baggy in the body.

    Adjustable powder skirt is really nice, collar is perfect height when hood is up to keep out weather but stays below my mouth so it doesn't get soaked from my breath. Jacket breathes really well even on a 40 degree day at Snowbird. Hood fits my helmet perfect and doesn't limit my field of vision. Water repellant finish is very high quality. The coat is longer cut as mentioned by others but I had no problem with that. Kept the snow out of my coat on a 20+ inch powder day in Utah.

    I would highly recommend this coat!

    Great Shell!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I love this jacket. I really like the styling and the bright yellow, which keeps me visible to friends, even in the trees. (The yellow will show dirt and tree branch scuffs but I don't mind)

    I was concerned about the length as I read reviews of people who felt it slid over their butt when they crouched and restricted their bending down motion, but it's really not a problem. I tested it and if I take a wide stance and crouch it does get tight below my butt, but A) I don't notice it while riding and B) if you slightly cinch the waist drawstring the waist stays put and the problem goes away entirely.

    I love the arm pocket! The hood works well over my helmet. I've only worn it a few days so I can't vouch for durability, but it seems tough. I did wear it on an extremely windy day that shut down a lot of lifts and it kept the wind out 100%. I also wore it in a rainstorm (at sea level) as a raincoat and it kept me dry. On the mountain it's ready for anything.

    Generous fit, solid and simple

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: XXL
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 230lbs

    Not an overload of features, just a solid shell. Pit zips provide good airflow, so it's doing well both in the resort and skinning/bootpacking into the sidecountry and dealing with Pac NW conditions (heavy snow and variable temps, lots of storm skiing).

    I have a long torso and need a fair bit of room in the shoulders/chest, so I got the XXL. Probably could have gotten away with the XL, but the extra sizing keeps things from riding up. Highly recommended.

    Too long

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    I'm pleased with the jacket, but I find it too long. Rather than repeating the other reviewers who said a lot of good things, and with which I agree, I just wanted to point out one negative.

    The jacket feels too long -- it doesn't have enough range of motion. When I'm carving down a wide slope, the jacket "hangs up" on my butt and doesn't let me crouch/assume lower position. I'm finding myself constantly pulling up the jacket to be at my waist, and then it's perfect. It's enough of an annoyance that I'm considering getting another jacket... but the construction and fit and utility is otherwise excellent.

    Pow Machine

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

    Picked up the Powder Bowl as a dual purpose shell. One that I could eventually tour in and one that I could use on the resort. The jacket is the perfect ratio of burley enough for it to be durable but not to heavy for it to still be an adequate touring jacket.

    The fit is great on the jacket as it runs a little baggy, allowing for layering to take place under the jacket. The ski pass pocket on the outside arm is also a great touch for your RFID passes. The pow skirt on the jacket is also adjustable so you can tighten or loosen as much as you'd like in order to get the best fit.

    So far the jacket has been bomber and kept me warm and dry up at Snowbird. Have ridden a few powder days so far in this jacket that have been fairly wet and fairly dry and I have yet to run cold, the Gore-Tex is clearly doing its job well.

    Bring on the powder!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    This shell has lasted through a full season of 100 plus days in the Wasatch and meets and exceeds expectations. The construction is true to Patagonia and you know they will stand behind their product if needed. The fit isn't overly baggy and I never felt drafty. Layering is not an issue and it is surprisingly breathable.

    Best Shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 163lbs

    I normally wear size M but decided to get S for a tapered fit. If you're looking for a high performance breathable shell, then look no further.

    Best Shell

    Love it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    Bought this for my husband, his review...This is a really good jacket. I'm 6'3", 195 lbs. I went with the size L and it fits great. Sometimes I have to buy XL shirts/jackets because the arms aren't long enough on size L, but Patagonia seems to put a little extra length in the sleeves which is great. It's a sharp looking jacket with high end features. Very lightweight and low profile. Not too tight though. There's room for movement without looking "baggy". Highly waterproof. My only critique is that the hood could be a little easier to adjust, but that's very minor. You can't go wrong with this jacket IMO.

    Perfect fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XXL
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 250lbs

    I am shorter and wider than most skiers and snowboarders and I always have trouble with finding a jacket that fits great and isn't too hot. The XXL size is a perfect size. The jacket is warm, but not too warm and has vents on the side for hot spring days.

    Unanswered Question

    I'm 5'10, and a pretty athletic build, and weight between 184-190 generally. Should I go with a medium or a Large?
