A trusted shell for snow slayers of all sorts.
That untouched line of fresh pow through the trees belongs to you. The Patagonia Men's Snowshot Pants let you make beautiful, waist-deep turns that confirm your reason for existence, without moisture creeping inside to ruin your soul's celebration. A two-layer shell uses both a DWR coating and a waterproof, breathable H2No Performance Standard membrane to keep out the snow as it billows around and sends rooster tails behind you.
Waist details include a soft, brushed-tricot lining and an internal adjustment for a customized fit. A slick 100% polyester tricot mesh liner throughout glides easily over a baselayer. Interior, mesh-lined thigh vents help you keep your cool, gaiters seal out snow as you posthole to the ridge, and scuff guards add durability and edge protection. A loop on the rear yoke seam connects to the powder skirt on any Patagonia snow jacket.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: XL
Has performed well in a variety of conditions so far in the Pac NW - so anything from cold/dry powder (rare unfortunately) to deep and heavy (typical Baker storm days) to basically just raining. Bit warm (even with the vent zips open) when bootpacking/skinning in the side country, or when skiing technical terrain in heavy snow. Sizing - spot on for my 32" inseam on length. Got the XL for room in thighs and hips, where I need it; waist is quite large for me (36"), which means it's bunching quite a bit with a belt. Common problem for me, most pants need alterations for me, and consistent with size chart (which calls it 38-40").
As expected from PataGucci
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
Offered as a base ski/snow pant, it provides all the features one would expect. A few simple pockets, quality waterproofing, and a great cut. I'm 6' and 200#s and the Large provides a typical freeride fit, with plenty of adjustment left in the velcro waistband.
Patagonia quality but size too large
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Medium
One undersized pocket make these pants useless for doubling as a resort pant. Size was too large. I'd tried Patagucci small pants in the past that were too small. Can't seem to find a happy median.
I bought these pants on recommendation, but found them inadequate. First time on the hill, they tore down the crotch. I returned them thinking they were defective, only to have the next pair do the same the first time I wore them. I'm not a crazy skier by any means. Been doing it for many years. Never had a pant that tore so easily. Avoid this pant!

Not the most high end offering out there, but great for resort riding! Waterproof and fit well!
