    Premium protection.

    In the face of a blower squall or chest-high powder, the Patagonia Men's Powslayer Bib Pant gives you complete protection. Made for the backcountry's ever-changing weather, this pant is constructed from Gore-Tex Pro fabric for the highest level of waterproof protection and breathability. A DWR finish helps water bead on the bib's surface, ensuring your legs won't get wet from the outside.

    Updated this season with a refined fit, this low-profile bib is built with an innovative zero-bulk construction and has a drop-seat configuration. A zip fly with single-snap closure provides convenient relief when nature calls. Belt loops at the waist offer easy convertibility when hiking. If you're pulling a sled full of gear and the sun breaks through, two-way side zips provide venting so you can cool down. A gusseted crotch and articulated knees let you move with confidence. Gaiters create a snow-resistant seal between the pant and your boot, while scuff guards protect the inside and bottom hem of the pant leg.

    • Built for skiing or snowboarding during the deepest pow days
    • Gore-Tex Pro shell for protection from wind and snow
    • Side zips for easy venting on the skintrack
    • Low-profile bib with drop-seat configuration
    • Articulated pattern for mobility and comfort while riding
    • Gaiters seal out blower powder
    • Built-in RECCO reflector
    • Regular fit leaves room for extra layers

    Awesome product, terrible fit!

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

    I would be so stoked on these bibs, but in the classic bout of Patagonia craftsmanship, their fit is totally bizarre.

    No qualms with the construction, or the materials chosen. They are all durable, functional, and top of the line.

    The fit is super weird, however- According to the dimensions in the fit guide, I should be a dead ringer medium at about 6'2, 180, 32 in inseam. (I wear a medium patagonia jacket, and the fit seems to be reliable for the uppers)

    The crotch of the inseam feels way high. I have to sag the bibs a bit to keep from a constant wedgie.
    However, the chest is so slim, that it constricts around my body. The buttons always are popping when I bring my knees to my chest. The thighs of the bibs are also super tight, and they limit my range of motion.

    This would be all and well, but the large bibs I absolutely swim in.

    It seems like Patagonia needs a size in between the medium and large bibs.

    Next year, I will be shelling out for the Arcteryx bibs. The cut on those is articulated for dynamic movement, and they don't ride too high or constrict motion.

    Killer bibs for any day on the mountain

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    The more I wear these the more stoked I get about them. They have held up well at the resort and in the backcountry and continue to be some the best pants I have ever owned. Ever.

    Hit me up if you are thinking you may be between sizes. I was between a medium and large and went medium. Since these run slightly bigger I'm happy with the decision.

    Bomber bibs for the deepest pow

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M and L

    Bomber bibs, worth the $ if you find yourself in waist deep powder on a regular basis. A note on size- I ordered a pair in M and L since I wasn't sure and at 6'1" and 185 I fall right in between the two. I decided to go with the L to give a little extra room to move but the bibs are slightly long and baggy for me. The M were the right length/fit in the legs but were a bit snug in the upper belly/chest when I put on a base layer and my trusty R1 midlayer. If you're unsure of size I recommend ordering two sizes and choosing the best fit.

    Perfect for Touring and the Resort

    Whether you're taking hot laps in the backcountry and trying to set the guiness book of world record for vert in one day or lazily hitting the resort at noon and taking a few before apres' - the Powslayer bibs are the way to go.

    Extensive leg zips, 4 front pockets, 1 back pocket, adjustable suspender design and deep thigh pockets for that avalanche beacon (safety first, ladies and gentlemen) OH and Gore-Tex Pro 3L - these pants are literally as good as you can get.

    I use mine in and out of bounds and really love the articulation in the legs and ease of movement when touring uphill. I was on the fence between the medium and large and could have gone either way. Since I am touring with these more than hitting the resort with them I technically "sized down" to the medium's.

    Holler if you have any questions or need help setting up your kit.



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

    I love these bibs. The fit is excellent (2015 model) and I expect that they will last a long time. They are very light weight but the Gore Pro grid fabric is bomber.

    Great Pants!

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

    I'm a bigger guy for my height; the bib is a little snug in the belly, but it fits perfectly everywhere else. I've skied them for about a quarter of a season in bounds and out of bounds, and the only noticeable wear and tear is in the cuffs. I have definitely taken a few spills and scraped the pants across some rocky sections. They have held up really well so far. The pockets on the legs are large and the vents can be opened up all the way above the hips. I'd definitely recommend these pants.

    Functional and comfortable

    I don't think anyone can go wrong buying a bomber piece of technical outerwear that is 3L goretex Pro. The fit on these bibs are great. A little baggy, but that seems to be the new look these days. I was surprised to not see zippers on the cuffs, but the leg opening was made wide enough to go over any boot out there. The gaiter does a great job at keeping the snow out as well. I have experienced the cuff issue that the others below me have talked about, but I have experienced that in ANY pair of technical pants I have ever owned. If you don't accommodate for the length by rolling up the cuff, tucking it into your Wellies, or pulling the gaiter up over them, the way technical outwear is designed, you WILL get cuff wear unless you manage that on your own. No one wants to buy super expensive technical outwear wear and then feel like you are preparing for a flood and having the high water look with the cuffs coming to the top of your ankles... That could just be me though... My only complaint is the Vislon zippers are extremely stiff at times and the thigh vents have issues if you don't zip them in a very specific way for the zipper to clear the little flap of fabric at the end of the zipper. Other than that they are great. Once you go bibs, you never go back. Plenty of pockets, and belt loops if you need them.

    I am 5'8" 170lb with a fairly long torso and a 30" inseam and wear a medium across the board for the most part in Patagonia. The slim alpine fit stuff still fits well in a medium for me, just less room to layer underneath. The more relaxed fit still fits fine in a medium, just more room to layer or have that new school baggy look.

    Durability Issues

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

    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.

      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.

      Can these be worn without the bib straps? are they removable or can they be tucked away?

      Hey Adam,

      Powslayer bibs sit pretty high up above your waist so if you wanted to wear them with the straps down it will be a bit uncomfortable. They are not able to be completely removed without cutting them but they do have a spot to use a belt as I said they sit so much higher than the belt loop it is a bit weird.

      Feel free to contact me with any other question.
