For total protection in all conditions, the PowSlayers feature lightweight yet highly durable, three-layer GORE-TEX Pro fabric for waterproof/breathable and windproof performance. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds water in spitting conditions, and 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 for the option to drop the shoulder straps when you’re hiking. Slim Zips provide watertight protection and reduce weight and bulk, and other details include articulated knees for full mobility, thigh vents for climate control, tough scuff guards, internal gaiters, pockets aplenty (two handwarmers and two thigh, drop-in cargos), an embedded RECCO avalanche rescue reflector, and a loop on rear yolk that attaches bibs to powder skirt on any Patagonia snow jacket.
