We put the Patagonia Women's Powder Bowl Jacket to the test

Overall Score
Tough wearing but good looking jacket
Still a little on the pricey side

This is a great combination of a toughness and elegance in an outdoor jacket; made with Gore-tex, it is intended for frequent use and you can tell that it will wear well over time.

The Powder Bowl has all the bells and whistles you would expect from a technical jacket, including pockets in useful places; for your lift pass on the arm, for your phone high on the chest so you'll hear it when it rings, and two standard lower pockets.

The jacket is cut well so that it is very female-flattering, plus the pockets are cut in such a way that it doesn't bulk out when you have them full. There is also a powder skirt which I find also helps with the overall look of the jacket when fastened, lending a sleeker line.

The jacket is spacious and will allow for plenty of layers underneath, although the jacket itself is partly lined, and I found it kept me quite warm on the snow in cool temperatures, and was very windproof. It also has a good high collar to keep the cold and the wind out! In warmer weather, the pit vents will keep you pleasantly cool.

The colour is bright without tending towards the florescent end of the spectrum so you know you will stand out from the crowd in a good way!

If you're looking for a jacket that is long lasting, technical and looks good, this is the jacket for you.
