Designed for the absolute best ski days you'll ever experience, the Patagonia is packing all the protection you'll need on snorkel-worthy powder days. Made from tough, lightweight polyester and built around a 2-layer Gore-Tex membrane, the Powder Bowl's Progressive cut and modern styling represent a new direction for Patagonia. 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 jacket with 2-Layer Gore-Tex. While slightly less resistant to abrasion than 3-Layer Gore-Tex, 2-Layer is more supple, more flexible, and the fabric tends to be quieter. The main body fabric is 150D polyester, which is both durable and soft to the touch. The removable, helmet-compatible, two-way-adjustable fixed hood has a laminated visor for optimal visibility in bad conditions. Patagonia's patented Touch Point System embeds the cord locks in the hood and hem for quick adjustment. Patagonia also equipped the Powder Bowl with a sleek, low-profile powder skirt that stays in place whether secured or not. The powder skirt also features a loop of nylon webbing that connects to any Patagonia Snow pants to form a single powder barrier.The Powder Bowl jacket's fit is Progressive, which is Patagonia-speak for loose. A slew of pockets keep your stuff (everything from climbing skins to your MP3 player) safe and secure while you lap the chair or a favorite backcountry shot, and zippered underarm vents make it easy to dump heat when you need to.
