Patagonia PowSlayer Bibs
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Sometimes luck gives you blower pow at Squaw, other times it's charging through freezing rain at Bachelor. You can't choose the weather, but you can choose to ride in our premium PowSlayers for total protection in all conditions. They feature lightweight yet highly durable, 3-layer GORE-TEX(R)Pro fabric for the highest level of waterproof/breathable and windproof performance. GORE-TEX Pro fabric now has even greater breathability; a DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds water in spitting conditions. The full-coverage design, updated this season with a taller back and a lowered front, includes drop-seat adjustability, a center-front zip for easy relief, and belt loops so you can drop the shoulder straps when you're hiking. Our Slim Zips provide watertight protection and reduce weight and bulk. Other details include articulated knees for full mobility, thigh vents for climate control, tough scuff guards, internal gaiters, four pockets (two handwarmers and two thigh, drop-in cargos), and an embedded RECCO(R) avalanche rescue reflector.
In the face of projectile sleet or chest-high blower pow, the Patagonia Men's Powslayer Bib Pant give you complete protection. This brand ambassador bib, revised from last year, sports a new design and Gore-Tex Pro fabric with even better breathability. The RECCO reflector is now embedded at the lower right leg. Whether you're charging big, deep lines in Chile or slogging through an unrelenting onslaught of winter's worst, the Powslayer will be your protector and savoir. Gore-Tex Pro combines three discrete layers to create a single fabric without slippage between the layers for long-lasting waterproof, breathable protection. Topped off with DWR finish to help water bead on the bib surface, the Powslayer ensures your legs don't get wet from the outside. If you're pulling a sled full of gear and the sun breaks through, external thigh vents unzip so you can cool down and not be wet (with sweat) on the inside. A gusseted crotch and articulated knees let you huck off a cliff or sidestep up a slope without fear of ripping your pants. The front zipper and drop seat give you easy relief, even when you're dangling over a chasm obscured by swirling snow. Belt loops let you drop the suspenders when you're hiking without also dropping your pants. Gaiters create a snow-resistant seal between the pant and your boot, and scuff guards protect the inside of the pant leg. You can create a virtual snowsuit by attaching the bib to the powder skirt on any Patagonia snow jacket. Four zippered pockets give you storage galore for a flask, energy gels and bars, and sunscreen, just in case.
Patagonia's PowSlayer Bibs are fully-featured made with Gore-Tex Pro fabric for the highest level of waterproof/breathable performance.
Slice and carve your way through endless powder in the Patagonia Powslayer shell bib pants, which boast highly breathable Gore-Tex(R) Pro Shell construction with the increased coverage of bibs. 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell material is tough, extremely breathable and durably waterproof and windproof for protection in any weather. Durable Water Repellent finish causes water to bead up and roll off, fending off melting snow to help keep you dry. Full-coverage bibs have a drop-seat configuration and center-font zipper with snap closure for venting; thigh vents let you release excess body heat while keeping snow out. Embedded RECCO(R) reflector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors, helping speed up the search for a buried avalanche victim. Loop on rear yoke lets you securely connect a compatible Patagonia jacket's powder skirt to the bibs for an integrated riding system (jacket sold separately). 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 Powslayer bibs allow a great range of motion. Belt loops at waist make it easy to convert the bibs to pants for comfort when you're hiking up slopes. Zippered handwarmer pockets; drop-in thigh cargo pockets.
