Some lines are all-time, some are purely survival; the Patagonia Men’s Slim Powder Bowl Pant will see you through the full ride. It’s Patagonia’s most versatile pant for riding frontside steeps or backcountry couloirs. Made from a rugged, two-layer polyester Gore-Tex fabric for exceptional waterproof breathable and windproof performance, the Powder Bowls have a highly articulated fit. A DWR finish prevents saturation. Inside, a brushed-tricot lining in the seat and upper thighs manages moisture, while slick mesh in the legs glides smoothly over underlayers. External mesh-lined thigh vents let you regulate your climate on the bootpack, and articulated knees and a gusseted crotch provide unlimited mobility for catching big air or recovering from said air. Other features include coated, watertight Slim Zips for reduced bulk, gaiters with tenacious gripper elastic, an embedded RECCO avalanche rescue reflector, and burly scuff guards to protect the inside of the leg and hem from ski edges and postholing abuse. The pants feature a slim fit for a more tailored silhouette.
