PatagoniaInsulated Powder Bowl Pant - Women's

More powder please.

Whether fresh pow or untouched corduroy awaits you, answer the call of your weekend alarm and roll out of bed into the Patagonia Insulated Powder Bowl Pant. Thermogreen insulation wards off first-run chills as you ride the lift surveying the most promising conditions, while a Gore-Tex outer membrane and fully taped seams keep you warm and dry during surprise (and welcome) snow squalls later in the day.

Mesh-lined vents at the thighs let you release some steam as you bootpack up to the good stuff, and the articulated knees make sure you can move around when a crash sends you hunting for a ski on the way down. Seek out the deep stuff knowing DWR-coated ankle gaiters will prevent snow from giving your ankles an icy surprise without soaking through by the end of the day. If you're rocking a Patagonia jacket on top and it's a powder day, just use the loop at the rear yoke of the pant to attach it cleanly to your powder skirt — it's compatible with any Patagonia ski jacket.

Great pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Very happy with my new ski pants. I am 5’5 and 125lb. Small perfect for me. Great pockets, vent. A little long when wearing street shoes but length perfect in ski boots.

Best Pants for the East

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

Just got the Powder Bowl Insulated pants for my fiancé and she says “best pants for the east”. With the ever changing humidity levels the cold days can be brutal. She just spend 3 days in 0 degree weather (first time she ever skied below 10 degrees) and loved her time out on the hill. She was warm the entire time even with the wind chill. She loved the warmth, amount of pockets, style of pants. It is not a slim fit nor is it baggy. Has enough room to maneuver and she is not swimming in it either. Actually she normally wears a L Patagonia pant but in the insulated powder bowl she exchanged them for a M there was way to much room even with the adjusted waist tabs synchro tight. Exchanging them was incredibly easy working with a gear head. This has opened up a whole new experience for her skiing. Bring on the cold for those bitter east coast days.

Unanswered Question

Is the waist on these pants at true waist level, or are they closer to sitting on the hips?

awesome pants

These are an awesome insulated pant with great venting for the ski area. Waterproofing/breathability is amazing, even in super wet spring storms. Great fit and features.

Shred Ready!

    My girlfriend has these and she says: With the amount of snow Utah has gotten this year, I was very grateful to have these Patagonia Powder Bowl Pants and have been impressed by their durability and functionality throughout the season. They pair and integrate well with the Powder Bowl Jacket with a snap on the back and powder skirt to keep the snow out. The outside leg vents are great to keep airflow moving through but I do wish they also inner thigh for cross ventilation.

    the best!

    love these pants! tested them in the harshest weather conditions in Japan and they never faltered. My only issue is that I only have one pair! They aren't cheap but they keep you warm and dry in the harshest weather conditions and that alone is worth the price when shredding the mountain!

    Perfect!

    These pants are excellent in both fit and function. I'm a curvy athletic girl, size 10 and the Large was perfect with plenty of room to layer under if needed. We haven't had a below 20 degree day yet, and they were plenty warm without an extra layer. Excellent quality. Like the addition of a discreet back pocket (new this year over ly design) and ventilation locations on outer thigh. Super high quality, as you'd expect for this brand and price.

    I am glad you like them Lisa! I know my wife loves here Insulated Powder Bowls, especially with all the snow out in Utah this winter.

    Best Snowpant Ever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I LOVE these. They are very well made and indestructible.



    Quality: These are made for lots of use. They are the only ski pants I have ever had that I don't end up cutting up the bottoms on my edges. They don't look worn at all after a full season of use, even in the Goldenrod color, which is light and awesome looking.



    Waterproof: I tested these in pretty much the harshest environment for moisture....The Cascades. I've never had these soak through, which is a first. They were solid when I had to teach ski lessons all day in solid downpour rain.



    Warmth: These are super warm without being bulky. I was skeptical of having insulated pants at first, but am super glad to have these. It's great to be able to sit on the snow and not be cold.



    Fit: I am 5'5" and around 130. Small fits great.



    Area for improvement: The only thing I would change on these is the button at the top. I think it would be better with some sort of clasp that can't pop open. Occasionally the button pops open on these. Still not a biggy. ( And pretty standard on most ski pants anyways)

    Patagonia, nuff said

    I LOVE these pants. I'm 5'3", 120lbs and I ordered a size small they fit great. The Gortex feature was well worth the money and the insulation keeps me warm on the hill. The elastic adjustment on the inside of the pants is really nice. I ended up getting a similar Patagonia jacket once I realized how nice the pants were.
