Storm cycles, dry spells, and overhead powder come and go, but the thrill of dropping into your favorite line in any condition never wavers. We make the Powder Bowl Pants for all of winter’s moods, all season long. The pants have a rugged, 2-layer, GORE-TEX® fabric for exceptional waterproof/breathable and windproof performance, a highly articulated fit, and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish that prevents saturation. Inside, a combination of brushed mesh and polyester taffeta throughout the seat, upper thighs and down the legs manages moisture and glides smoothly over underlayers. External mesh-lined thigh vents let you regulate your climate on the ascent, and articulated knees provide unlimited mobility for catching big air (and landings).
