Bradwrote a review of Patagonia PowSlayer Jacket - Men's on March 30, 2018
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
The color of this jacket and overall design and features are spot on. fit is somewhat of a personal thing but as other reviewers have noted to sizing on this seems odd. I am a 5'9" 155lb male who wears size medium in just about everything I have ever owned (including at least 6 patagonia jackets)I find the medium to be anything but a comfortable/functional fit. It is too long and wide at the bottom, the chest almost is almost right for layering, and the sleeves seem perfect. I found with the hood on my helmet I had pretty significant peripheral vision and head range of motion restriction. Zippers seem weirdly small as well to be used with gloves or mitts in the backcountry. I really was only buying this to replace a 20 year old shell still going strong but no helmet compatible hood so with the weird fit and poor hood function its getting returned.
