A trusted shell for snow slayers of all sorts.
That untouched line of fresh pow through the trees belongs to you, and the Patagonia Men's Snowshot Pants let you make beautiful, waist-deep turns that affirm your reason for existence, without moisture creeping inside to ruin your soul's celebration. A two-layer shell uses both a DWR coating and a waterproof, breathable H2No Performance Standard membrane to keep out the snow as it billows around and sends rooster tails behind you.
Waist details include a soft, brushed-tricot lining and an internal adjustment for a customized fit. A slick polyester tricot mesh lining throughout glides easily over a baselayer. Interior, mesh-lined thigh vents help you keep your cool, gaiters seal out snow as you posthole to the ridge, and scuff guards add durability and edge protection. A loop on the rear yoke seam connects to the powder skirt on any Patagonia snow jacket.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Large
I bought a pair SnowShot pants after owning a pair of Rubicon pants for 7-8 seasons, which was the predecessor pant. The pocket layout and venting is great. However, Patagonia changed the sizing in a weird way. The Large was on the big, baggy side, especially the waist, while the medium was a little snug in the thighs. I ended up going with the large so I could layer and had to wear a belt even with the waist tabs pulled tight. I only skied in them for 2 days and the material showed abnormal wear and tear, which may have been from my skis. Even after 8 seasons my Rubicons never got nicked up like theses. I ended up returning them to Patagonia as they were no where near as durable as my old Rubicons, which I should have just kept rather than turning in via the worn-wear program.
