With it being more narrow, it’s a better fit if you’re going to use it as a day pack. I really don’t use a day pack all that much so I use it for overall use in packing up gear to head to and come from the hill. The goggle pouch is lined with microfiber and it is very large. For those that have huge spherical goggles you’ll love this choice. Also the rear compartment and front pockets can hold almost everything you can think of. I also like how it has the ski carry feature. Overall really easy to use and the straps have tons of padding. The copper color is also slightly darker than depicted. Plus who doesn’t love Eric pollard.

This case is great for the right lense. This is actually my third purchase of this exact product. I wear the I/O 7 and the I/O. Both lenses fit like that perfectly worn in baseball glove! This case has many different uses. If you want to store your extra chromapop lense in your car or ski bag instead of your cloth case it will do the trick. It will also work if you’re storing lenses for the off-season (purchased one last year). I always carry an extra lense on my person or my day pack. With the never ending weather changes New England can throw at you it is awesome to have an extra lense just in case you need different visibility. The case fits nicely in patagonia jacket pockets (especially chest pockets and internal pockets). Your lense won’t break either when you have to bail off a line and hit the deck or have a collision in the woods. I have to give a ton of credit to my gearhead Ben R! He made the choice for this purchase incredibly simple and easy, and he was right (like I said, I own 3 of these things and want more). If you have not worked with a Gearhead I would encourage everyone to do so. My outdoor experience has changed drastically when it comes to gear since working with Ben. He gets to know me and my preferences. From there we discuss different options on equipment, clothing, and accessories so every trip I take is awesome when it comes to gear.

Size Purchased: Medium

Just got the Powder Bowl Insulated pants for my fiancé and she says “best pants for the east”. With the ever changing humidity levels the cold days can be brutal. She just spend 3 days in 0 degree weather (first time she ever skied below 10 degrees) and loved her time out on the hill. She was warm the entire time even with the wind chill. She loved the warmth, amount of pockets, style of pants. It is not a slim fit nor is it baggy. Has enough room to maneuver and she is not swimming in it either. Actually she normally wears a L Patagonia pant but in the insulated powder bowl she exchanged them for a M there was way to much room even with the adjusted waist tabs synchro tight. Exchanging them was incredibly easy working with a gear head. This has opened up a whole new experience for her skiing. Bring on the cold for those bitter east coast days.

Leki Polls are the only brand I have in my quiver. They are durable; the aluminum shaft hasn’t broken nor has it been bent even with constant abuse in the woods and moguls.. I love the spitfire due to the color., my friends and family can always find me on the Hill. The strap system and quick release system are staples for me, no more tangling with ski pill straps as me and my friends are trying to beat the crowds to our favorite trails. I have the carbon ones but they are not durable enough. Can’t wait to get the adjustable aluminum’s. Interchangeable baskets are awesome as well, I just use the powder baskets for all conditions and they have not been ruined even with the ice on the east. One of the best purchases I have ever made. My gear head recommended the right ones based upon what i like and I could not be happier..... they don’t even scratch in the woods paint looks brand new even after 10 days of beatings.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 220 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

For me I loved the XL. There is enough room to wear a baselayer and R1 under it. The Venting is remarkable and the wind stopping feature is a huge added bonus. There are so many uses for this piece. I use it for morning walks or hikes, as well as I also use it when I need to be a little warmer at the office and I do not want to wear my nano-puff. The thin hood works well for so many things, I find myself using it more often than not.

You can layer this item, or you can wear it in some warmer weather just with tech shirt, or long sleeve underneath. It could also be a mid layer.

I usually buy L but I wanted the extra room so I bought the XL. This has become my go to before walking out the door. One of the best purchases I have made all year thus far.

I wanted to get a lightweight technical shell that I could layer up with with no added bulk. This jacket has not disappointed yet. I wore it on one of my last ski days in an incredibly windy/cold day in VT. Great protection from the elements, hood works incredibly well, as well as, it has great range of motion. I also like that is a regular fit jacket and not a slim fit. The regular is very similar to other Patagonia products, slightly baggy (which I personally like), but not nearly as baggy as the snowshot or powderbowl, . I wore it with a Patagonia Thermal base plus Nano-Air jacket one day and I did not feel restricted in movement on the hill. I went in the woods with it and came out the same way I went in. I was worried because of how thin the jacket was that it would come out worn. This thing can get hit, scraped, brushed against with no fear of ripping, cutting, tearing.

In the warmer temperature on the following day it worked super well with an R1 underneath. Vents and pockets work incredibly well.

Would recommend this for anyone looking for a lightweight jacket you can take anywhere and not worry about it with the added bonus of layering options
Nouveau Green is awesome color as well.
