The Patagonia Powder Bowl shell pants for men feature Gore-Tex(R) waterproof protection and rugged construction so that you stay dry and comfortable on any slope, in any conditions. Sturdy Gore-Tex waterproof, breathable shell fabric ensures you stay dry in heavy storms; 2-layer construction incorporates a sweat-wicking mesh lining to keep you comfortable. Durable Water Repellent finish causes water to bead up and roll off, fending off melting snow to help keep you dry. Embedded RECCO(R) reflector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors, helping speed up the search for a buried avalanche victim. Mesh-lined thigh vents let you release excess body heat while keeping out snow. Loop at rear of waistband lets you securely connect a compatible Patagonia jacket's powder skirt to the pants for an integrated riding system (jacket sold separately). Brushed lining on waistband wicks sweat and provides against-the-skin comfort; zip-fly, 2-snap closure and adjustable waistband tabs provide a personalized fit. Snow gaiters securely wrap around boots to keep snow from entering pants; scuff guards protect insides of legs and cuffs from abrasion and sharp edges. Gusseted crotch and articulated knees on the Patagonia Powder Bowl shell pants allow unrestricted movement for deep knee drops and ease when skinning up. Zippered handwarmer pockets; zippered thigh cargo pocket; zippered back pocket.

Some lines are all-time, some are purely survival: Powder Bowls will see you through the full ride. They're our most versatile pants for riding frontside steeps or backcountry couloirs. Made from a rugged, 2-layer 100% polyester GORE-TEX(R) fabric for exceptional waterproof/breathable and windproof performance, Powder Bowls have a highly articulated fit. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish prevents saturation. Inside, a brushed-tricot lining in the seat and upper thighs manages moisture while slick mesh in the legs glides smoothly over underlayers. External mesh lined thigh vents let you regulate your climate on the uptrack, and articulated knees and a gusseted crotch provide unlimited mobility for catching big air or recovering from said air. Other features include coated, watertight Slim Zips for reduced bulk, gaiters with tenacious gripper elastic, an embedded RECCO(R) avalanche rescue reflector, and burly scuff guards to protect the inside of the leg and hem from ski edges and postholing abuse. Pockets: two handwarmers, two thigh and one in back. With a slim fit for a more tailored silhouette.

Whether you ski, snowboard, snow kayak, throw snowballs, or just stand at the bus stop and heckle the winter crossing guard, the Patagonia Powder Bowl Gore Tex Pant will keep you dry and comfortable this winter. And, as always, Gore Tex means guaranteed waterproof and guaranteed breathable, so you can handle anything that nature throws your way without feeling moist and clammy. Patagonia designed the Powder Bowl with 2-Layer Gore-Tex. The main body fabric is 150D polyester, which is both durable and soft to the touch. Tough, reinforced kick patches at the ankles fight off attacks by sharp ski edges, so your cuffs won't fill up with snow after a run in the deep stuff. The Powder Bowl pant's fit is Progressive, which is Patagonia-speak for loose. The highly articulated fit moves with you while you hike or ski and feels comfortable and natural, and the articulated knees and gusseted crotch add to this feel. Zippered thigh vents make it easy to dump heat when you need to. Patagonia finished the pant off with a Recco reflector, which aids in search and rescue should you become involved in an avalanche.
