Patagonia brings you the Powder Bowl jacket, built for action and spontaneity anywhere on the mountain, in any condition. Made from tough, bluesign® approved 2-layer GORE-TEX® fabric with a DWR finish, this jacket is durable, waterproof, breathable, and windproof. Inside the jacket is a moisture-wicking polyester mesh lining that easily slips over your other layers, and a tall collar with water tight zippers help keep the rain and snow from seeping in. Discreet under arm zippers open up to vent out heat when you're climbing or getting overheated. The hood is helmet-compatible with 2-way-adjustments, and a laminated visor optimizes visibility in bad conditions. The powder skirt snaps together for a snug fit but it can snap to the side when you're not using it, and the adjustable hem cables are accessible from the hand pockets. A plethora of pockets keep all of your gadgets secure, and a hidden RECCO® chip will give you a little extra security and peace of mind while you're up on the mountain.

GORE-TEX® - GORE-TEX® fabric is incredibly durable, waterproof, breathable, and totally windproof. A single square inch of this fabric contains 9 billion microscopic pores—each 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapor. Water can’t pass through the fabric, yet perspiration escapes with ease. You’ll find this next level molecular construction on all GORE-TEX fabrics.


RECCO® - RECCO® is an advanced avalanche rescue system hidden in this outerwear that will save your butt when you need it. RECCO® is utilized by more than 700 rescue organizations worldwide to assist in the efficient location of burials. RECCO® technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim's precise location using harmonic radar. Hopefully you'll never have to use it, but if you do you'll be glad it's there.


Fully Taped - Having outerwear with fully taped seams means that on the inside of the jacket all the seams are covered in tape to provide the most effective waterproofing. It can be considered a key feature if you live in a wet climate or are planning on wearing the jacket during heavy rains. The downside is that due to the full taping there is less breathability than you'd experience with critically taped seams.

Product Features

bluesign® Approved - Patagonia has worked with the independent bluesign standard since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption and to screen raw materials, including dyes and finishes used in Patagonia's supply chain.

bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, audits the energy, water and chemical usage of its members and helps them achieve continuous, long-term environmental improvement.

Material Explanation

Recycled Polyester - Approximately 31% of plastic bottles produced in the United States are made from a material called PolyEthylene Terephtalate, "PET" or "PETE." Usually clear or green, the plastic is mostly used for consumer goods such as soda bottles and food jars, but once recycled and processed, it has a wide variety of eco-friendly applications. While recycling is not the end-all, be-all solution for ridding the world of the plastic bag beast, it is a sustainable path for plastic products and takes less energy to produce than traditional polyester.


Jacket to Pant Interface - Connect your jacket to your pants for better protection from the elements.

DWR Coating - A Durable Water Resistant finish applied to the exterior of the garment.

Asked by Petter on 9/28/2014
Witch Patagonia jacket has the longest, less boxier fit; The Powslayer, Untracked or Primo jacket?

Answered by Tyler K (Tactics Employee) on 9/30/2014
the primo and powslayer have a relaxed fit whil the powder bowl has a regular fit. The regular fit will be less "baggy".
