For season long comfort, the Powder Bowl Jacket is built with a tough 2-layer GORE-TEX® fabric for durably waterproof/breathable and windproof protection. This new silhouette has a more tailored fit and is articulated for freedom of movement.
Your technique keeps you ripping in mixed conditions, so your shells should too. Patagonia's most versatile hard shell for riding the frontside or the backcountry in any condition, the Powder Bowl features a tough 2-layer GORE-TEX® fabric for durably waterproof/breathable and windproof storm performance. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish increases wet-weather protection by sloughing saturated snow and icy rain. The torso has a brushed polyester mesh interior to wick moisture, while slick mesh in the arms glides smoothly over underlayers. The removable, 2-way-adjustable, helmet-compatible hood includes a laminated visor for optimal visibility in blowing snow. Inside, a fully featured powder skirt (with webbing loop that attaches to any Patagonia® snow pants) seals out spindrift and cold air and low-profile pit zips release heat when you’re steaming on long climbs. Other details include coated, watertight Slim Zips, cord lock adjustments at the hood and hem, an embedded RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector and a highly articulated fit for dynamic motion. Pockets: two handwarmers, one chest with a secure media pocket and cable routing, a forearm pass pocket and two interior pockets (one drop-in, one zippered stash).
