Pros and bros agree, the Patagonia PowSlayer Pants are as good as they get. Now available as just a pant, without the bib and suspenders, you simply won't find better outerwear than the PowSlayer line anywhere you look. For those who spend a lot of time in the mountains and don't especially care to limit their fun to the "nice" days, the PowSlayer Pants are a must-have.

The uncompromised PowSlayer Pants provide the highest level of stormproof performance available so you can focus on riding rather than second-guessing your gear. Built for movement (both up and down the mountain), they feature lightweight, yet highly durable, 3-layer 100% recycled nylon ripstop GORE-TEX(R) PRO shell fabric for the highest level of waterproof/breathable and windproof performance. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds moisture and wet snow and increases abrasion resistance. The low-profile design includes articulated patterning through the hips and knees for full mobility in all directions, slider side zips that let you fine-tune the venting options, tough scuff guards to protect the inside of the leg and the bottom of the hem, low-bulk gaiters that seal out snow when you're postholing and three zip-closing pockets (two thigh cargo, one at the right front hip). Watertight, coated zippers with slim zip installation reduce bulk and weight and provide exceptional storm protection. At the waist, a zip fly, double-snap closure and grown-on belt loops keep the pants right where you want them. With an embedded RECCO(R) avalanche rescue reflector and an articulated silhouette.

Some people consider getting up early and trying to sneak the first chair at the resort to be powder-hunting, but while they're fighting for spots in line, you're miles away pulling out the skins and hitting to the backcountry. For serious ski touring and freeride enthusiasts there's the Patagonia Powslayer Pant. New to Patagonia's ski line, the Powslayer Pant takes the trusted performance of the classic Powslayer Bibs and scales it back to a traditional pant, saving a bit of weight and bulk along the way. This light and breathable pant features a Gore-Tex Pro membrane that offers the highest in dependable and durable waterproofing, giving you trusted protection from wild alpine weather when you're far from home. It's also made with an entirely recycled nylon face, ensuring that you can have high-performing quality and an eco-friendly design all in one. With the Powslayer Pant you won't just have stormproof protection in the backcountry, you'll have loads of features to help you thrive and enjoy it to the fullest. Boot gaiters keep the snow sealed out whether you're postholing or dropping cliffs into waist-deep goodness, and outer thigh vents give you quick access to cooling airflow when you're skinning up long inclines and slashing endless powder turns. You've got articulated patterning for unrestricted movement when you're moving up or down the hill, and watertight zippered pockets to keep important gear close at hand. And if you find yourself missing the full coverage of a bib, you'll have snap-in compatibility with any Patagonia snow jacket.
