Protection from the pow.
Patagonia's Men's Snowshot Jacket offers a progressive, freeride fit for superior comfort and mobility when you rip up the park, charge through powder, or drop into fresh steeps. The fabric package includes a burly, H2No Performance Standard two-layer shell for a waterproof, breathable barrier between you and the snowy slopes. And a DWR finish keeps you dry when you fly through mucky weather. Light polyester mesh lines the body and sleeves for a smooth glide over layers. Articulated arms allow you to move naturally, and underarm zips provide a quick-venting option when you work up steam. Weather-sealing features include a removable, two-way adjustable, helmet-compatible hood with a laminated visor to keep snow out of your face. Soft microfleece panels protect your neck and chin from wind blasts. The low-profile powder skirt has a webbing loop that connects to any Patagonia snow pant to provide an always-ready seal when you're in the deep.

- Q & A
Nice, heavy weight shell. Fits big
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I love this jacket, but it had to go back. It's huge. Previous reviewer agrees (baggy fit) and I'm not a "baggy fit" dude. But for some reason BC summary says "fits small." Nice materials. Big pit zips, nice zippers, good pocket layout. Minus 1 star because it's treated, not Gore-tex.
BUT... it fits like a huge potato sack. At 5'9" and 175. I'm pretty reliably a Medium- 40R suit coat off the rack, every time. I'm a little beefy by adventure sport standards so some M t-shirts fit me like a sausage casing. But I'm swimming in this jacket. I know it's a "layering piece" but I could put on 8 bulky sweaters under this thing. With my luck the small will be too small. Hopefully not.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Well made, patagonia ethics and BC low cost. STOKED! Baggy fit.
