We make our PowSlayers for the backcountry's 40 flavors of kick-ass weather. Updated this season with a newly refined fit, they deliver premium storm protection to riders in all conditions-”whether you're piecing together your descent in a blower squall or skinning back to camp under a head of steam. Built for movement (both up and down the mountain), they feature lightweight, yet highly durable, 3-layer GORE-TEX Pro fabric for the highest level of waterproof/breathable and windproof performance. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds water and spindrift when the going gets deep. The low-profile, full-coverage design includes drop-seat adjustability, a center-front zip for easy relief and belt loops so you can drop the shoulder straps when you're wallowing in the boot path. Our Slim Zips provide watertight protection and reduce weight and bulk. Other details include articulated patterning through the hips and knees for full mobility, thigh vents for climate control, tough scuff guards, internal gaiters and five pockets (two thigh cargo, two midtorso and one back). With an embedded RECCO avalanche rescue reflector.
