Patagonia’s Insulated Powder Bowl Pants deliver season long comfort by combining a waterproof breathable GORE-TEX outer with Thermogreen recycled polyester insulation. GORE-TEX’s 20K ratings in both waterproofing and breathability are a leading combination. A relaxed fit maximizes the amount of stored warmth by permitting the insulation to assume it’s ideal loft, and the resulting Increase in the flow of air causes moisture to dissipate more rapidly. Thermogreen insulation performs at a high level, even when wet, and is constructed from 90% recycled material. The Insulated Powder Bowl Pants feature plentiful storage with dual hand warmer pockets, an easy-access thigh pocket, and a zippered rear pocket. Vents are a must with an insulated pant. Here, Patagonia lines the vents with mesh in order to prevent snow entry while in use. Hidden RECCO Reflector gives the Insulated Pow Bowls the go ahead in the side country. Watertight zips, boot gaiters, and rugged kick patches are appreciable details that we have learned to expect from Patagonia.

Waterproofing prevents exterior moisture from reaching the pant’s insulation, and vapor transmission prevents overheating during periods of work.
