    Required wear for admittance 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 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 Powslayer has a regular fit to maintain comfort 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 it seals 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.

    • Designed for the deepest days in or out of the resort
    • Gore-Tex Pro offers reliable waterproof, breathable protection
    • Underarm zippers ensure ample ventilation when you work up a sweat
    • Updated powder skirt adjusts to assure proper coverage

    Bomber Jacket

      This jacket is the bomb. Was surprised by how light yet durable this thing is. The orange is definitely orange but the burnt orange lower quiets it down. Longer cut than average but not super baggy, so you avoid the Bro/brah look nicely. Can easily and comfortably fit a down hoody underneath and not look or feel like the stay puff marshmallow man. Two thumbs up on this bad boy.

      The New Snow Dance Ritual

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      The Powslayer is hands down the best jacket I have ever owned. I can safely say this jacket is worth EVERY penny.

      ... I'm also starting to believe that this jacket has brought one of the best starts to a winter season I have seen in years. You have to be a little superstitious as a snowboarder/skier on what brings on the best pow.

      3L Gore-Tex Pro, a simple color design, exceptional pocket placement and the best waterproof and breathable jacket (IN & Out of Bounds). The Powslayer is the end all be all to skiing/snowboarding jackets. Don't let the price tag intimidate you- with Patagonia's lifetime warranty this will be a jacket that you will have for so many more seasons to come. The adjustable hood and closure system is super clutch as well, just pull the string on the inside of the jacket and press the button near your collarbone and BOOM - you're G2G. Although the zipper is a little stiff and slow to get used to it is the highest quality YKK zipper out there. So just get a little practice in with it before you hit the slopes.

      If you have questions on size, a pair of pants/bibs to pair with these or want to hear how stoked I am on this jacket... simply hit me up!

      Slays it All

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

      I've had a few days in this shell and really like it compared to others I've used in the past. Very solid construction and fits great. First day out in this jacket was a blustery cold day at Alta. The snow that day had a unusually high water content and I stayed dry and warm bell to bell. Works well as a touring hard shell with ample ventilation. If your looking for a shell that will fit good and last a long time, look no further!

      The best!

        I love Patagonia. There stuff lasts and it's consistently well designed. I switched from a black diamond mission shell and pants to the powslayer jacket this year. Huge difference in fit and comfort when riding and skinning. I'm 5'10 and stocky- 195lbs. The BD shell was fine except through the shoulders in a large. The powslayer fits perfect. Yes, a little baggier than some but with a few layers it's still comfortable.the hood is great, as opposed to the BD mission which is HUGE. Zippers are great, pockets are perfect on the outside, and on the inside they are big enough to stash my skins on the way down. I don't see replacing this for several years! Thank you Patagonia once again.!

        New age baggy feel

        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: Medium

        Compared to my Patagonia Super Alpine hardshell, wearing this jacket has the feeling as if you just lost 40 pounds. The small is a little too small across the chest and shoulders, so I stayed with a medium like I am in most Patagonia products. It was designed more for the free ski look, so I am definitely not complaining about it, just be prepared if you have other technical shells from Patagonia since the fit is night and day. There are plenty of pockets, on the outside and inside. A media pocket and headphone cord hole, water bottle or skin pockets on the inside, and the upper bicep pocket on the left arm is nice for the day or season pass depending on how baller you are. The RECCO is a nice safety feature that is added in as well, hidden between the shoulders under the collar. The hood easily fits over almost any helmet and is easily adjustable as well. My only complaint is the the Vislon zippers can be extremely stiff and hard to zip. My center zip hangs up above the top of the front pockets and can sometimes be a chore to get it zipped, but I'm starting to learn the nuances of this zipper. The pit zips are large and allow for plenty of venting which is nice as well.

        I am 5'8" 170lb with a fairly long torso 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. In the picture, it was extremely windy on the summit that day, making the jacket look humongous. I will update someday with a normal non wind effected picture

        Great Jacket That Will Last Years

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

        The powslayer jacket is a great shell jacket. I'm 6'0" 160 lbs and the large fits me perfect for a baggier fit ski jacket with plenty of room for layering. The 3 layer gore Tex is obviously extremely waterproof, windproof and breathable. The powder skirt has a grippy synthetic and creates a great seal. The jacket is loaded with pockets including two inner pockets that are especially useful. I was a little hesitant of getting a Shell with no insulation but just pop a down layer on under this bad boy and you are good to go! Price was pretty high but worth it. Only downside I've noticed is the main zipper is a little stiff. Overall, great quality jacket that will last years.

        Worth the price

        • Size Bought: Large

        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.

        Simply AWESOME!

        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.

        Need some help on sizing on this one please. I'm 5'9", 180 b, 43" chest (stocky build, broad chest / back)...size medium or large? Many thanks in advance :-)

        Hey Stuart! I'm the roughly the same body type as you (5"10, 180) and I would order a Large in this jacket. If you receive it and need to make any changes, let me know and we'll get something set up for you!
