The Patagonia Powder Bowl Women's Jacket is a perennial A-lister when it comes to insulated ski pieces for women. Thermogreen is a Primaloft or Thinsulate equivalent synthetic insulant, renowned for its ability to trap heat without the bulky look of down. Thermogreen's ultra-fine recycled polyester fibers insulate even when wet, because of their natural resistance to moisture absorption. Gore-Tex face fabric demonstrates rainwear caliber waterproofing, and elite abrasion and tear resistance. Patagonia's regular fit runs big enough to work with a heavy mid-layer, for those must-go days when a fresh dump is complimented by temperatures in the teens or twenties. Hand warmer pockets, and a napoleon chest pocket, make the Insulated Powder Bowl Jacket a suitable around town option. Under arm vents give this Patagonia flagship women's coat late season versatility by providing precise control over the flow of fresh air through the jacket.
Regular Fit - The Insulated Powder Bowl jacket runs big. It is cut longer and fuller than a traditional jacket in order to facilitate your layering program.
Synthetic Insulated Waterproof/Breathable Gore-Tex Ski Jacket.
2-Layer GORE-TEX Outer - 20K waterproof and breathability ratings earn GORE-TEX its reputation as an elite shell fabric. Gore fabric optimizes the performance of a garments insulation by keeping you dry in two ways. Waterproofing prevents exterior moisture from reaching the pant’s insulation, and vapor transmission prevents overheating during periods of work.
Thermogreen Synthetic Insulation - By using a mixture of 60g and 100g synthetic insulation, the Women's Insulated Powder Bowl Jacket traps body heat without unnecessary bulk. This polyester insulation performs even when wet, and contains at least 90% recycled fibers.
Exterior - Hand warmer pockets protect your paws when your walking to dinner in your favorite ski town, and provide a bit of accessible storage for the essentials. A napoleon chest pocket features a storm flap, which combined with a waterproof YKK zip provides reliably weatherproof cell phone storage. An RFID pass pocket lets you keep your gloves on in the lift line, and alleviates the need for that awkward lateral hip thrust that we've all done to try to get our pass read. Watertight YKK Zips fortify all of the exterior pockets.
Interior - Zippered security pocket. Large mesh drop pocket is a great place to stash an extra layer, or second pair of mitts.
Pit Zips - When shut you'll never know they're there. In the spring the ability to create some fresh air flow will keep you comfortable in the sun's increasing strength.
