Snowshot Insulated Jacket
From pizza-ing prodigies to budding GS champions—if they're a kid who has to be dragged off the mountain at the end of the day, they'll love the Patagonia Snowshot Insulated Jacket. It's fully waterproof, with an H2No Performance Standard shell that sheds everything from summit flurries to heavy powder-day snows. Warm synthetic insulation keeps them toasty on slow lift rides and frozen days, and a removable powder skirt keeps the snow out when they take a tumble or two. The hood removes when there's nothing but bluebird days on the horizon, while the media-compatible chest pocket lets them (quietly) rock out to their favorite tunes as they zip by you.
For holding maps and snacks they've got two standard hand pockets, and a convenient pass pocket to help them cruise through lift lines. The sleeves have an articulated design for a free range of motion, and sport a grow-fit feature that increases their length by two inches, helping you keep up with unexpected growth-spurts to get in more seasons of use. When the growing gets too much and it's time to hand it over to a cousin or sibling, there's a built-in hand-me-down ID label to keep track of official transfers of ownership.

7 year old loves it!
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- True to size
We recently purchased three snow/ski jackets for our 7 year old and this is the one he chose. It fits as Patagonia normally does - right on size for the age if the child is tall and lean. He’s 4 feet and 46 pounds and the 7/8 fits perfectly with a little room to grow in overall length so I imagine he’ll be able to wear it for two seasons. The other two brands we ordered to try in the same size were HUGE on him but thankfully we can always count on Patagonia for our needs! As far as it not fitting a ski helmet, I was fully aware when purchasing it knowing it wouldn’t fit; he’s never worn a hood out on the slopes so this isn’t an issue for him. If it is for you, definitely don’t buy it! I think if you could size up and get away with the fit being a little larger overall the hood *may* fit but I can’t say for sure, just a guess. My own Patagonia ski coat that’s true to size for my body also doesn’t go comfortably over my ski helmet and I didn’t size up to accommodate since I don’t use a hood over my helmet, either! 😂

Weatherproof, but not good for skiing
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
- Size Bought
- 55 lbs
Imagine having a 5 year old who LOVES to ski. No matter what, he wants to go out with his dad - its the perfect patagonia ad. Now imagine you're stuck on a stalled lift in Vermont with the wind howling and your poor kid, who is otherwise super happy in 20 degree weather, crying hysterically because he is freezing cold. That was the situation I was stuck in. The hood on my jacket was the different between me being cold and warm - so when I say the lack of a helmet-compatible hood was the single most boneheaded thing a designer could skip in a ski jacket, I mean it in a visceral, 'this is absolutely unacceptable and needs to be fixed' kind of way.

Very Well Made But Not for a Helmet.
- I returned this product before using it
- Runs large
I recently ordered and subsequently returned the Snowshot Jacket. While the jacket appears very well made and is a perfect fit for my eight-year-old son (size small), the hood is not helmet-compatible. Not even close. The hood is so small it barely fits over his head without a helmet—or even a hat. Why would Patagonia make a ski jacket for kids in 2019 that is not helmet-compatible? Every kid at every ski resort is wearing a helmet these days. Every other major manufacturer (Obermeyer, Helly Hanson, North Face, and Spyder) for kids ski clothing all offer helmet-compatible jackets. The ability to pull the hood over the helmet and then zip up the collar is ideal protection for cold windy days. This seems like a huge oversight and makes the jacket pretty useless for harsh conditions on the slopes.

Most helmets are insulated bro
April 2, 2020
For Brian T - I wear a helmet that is insulated, and will state that a hood wrapped over my ski helmet is the difference between being warm on the lift and cold. In fact, nearly every skiing, mountaineering and snowboarding jacket on the market today includes a helmet-compatible hood. The reason is simple - it makes your setup warmer. But thanks for commenting bro.

Decent coat but is it a ski coat?
I bought this for my ten year old. We ski in Northern WI and upper Michigan. Coat is warm enough but with very few features. At minimum, there needs to be a dedicated lift ticket / season pass attachment point. The zippers donât hold up for this purpose and Iâve had to reattach the chest zipper pocket after only three ski trips. Come on Patagonia! Youâre better than that.

- I've used it several times
My nephew is 5 and can’t seem to stop growing. Every year I spend hours looking at jackets and never stray from Patagonia. The size chart was particularly helpful when determining whether an XS boys’ would fit (he’s only worn toddlers), which it did. The material and insulation stand up to cold Michigan winters and most importantly, he loves it. Highly recommend!
