2013 Patagonia Men’s PowSlayer Jacket

Style No. 30300
Progressive and stealth, our new 3-layer PowSlayer Jacket – fully featured and made with Gore-Tex® Pro fabric – is the pinnacle in waterproof/breathable performance for slaying pow lines in any conditions.
Ambassador-driven and tested on every level, this fully dialed jacket gives you complete stormproof performance for riding big and deep pow lines. It’s made with extremely lightweight yet durable, 3-layer GORE-TEX® Pro nylon fabric for the pinnacle of waterproof/breathable protection. Three-layer reinforcements toughen high-wear areas, and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish prevents wet-out in soggy conditions. The helmet-compatible, two-way-adjustable fixed hood has a laminated visor for optimal visibility, and our Touch Point System™ embeds cord locks in the hood and hem to eliminate loose ends. Watertight, coated zippers, installed with our Slim Zip technology, reduce weight and bulk; pit zips quickly release heat. The design of the sleek, low-profile powderskirt ensures a trustworthy seal for moments of ragdoll inspiration or snorkel deep sessions. Pockets: two drop-in cargos, one chest, one bicep for your pass, and an internal stash pocket for your media device.
