The Patagonia PowSlayer bib is second-to-none in functionality, versatility, and protection and is ideal for those days in the resort and backcountry when Mother Nature pulls out all the stops.

FULL REVIEW

Materials
The Patagonia PowSlayer Bib is constructed of time-tested 40 Denier 3-layer GORE-TEX Pro Shell with a DWR finish. They are lightweight, breathable, and durable.

Comfort
The PowSlayer Bib is comfortable and articulates well. The fabric does tend to crinkle and rub against itself, and can make it loud when walking.

Temperature Control
Highly breathable fabric and half-length leg zips allow for comfort in a large temperature range. The PowSlayer bib is plenty warm on cold days and versatile enough to tour in on all but the warmest spring days.

Features/Functionality
This is perhaps where the PowSlayer bib shines the most. A total of 5 pockets (two mid-torso, two high-cargo, and one back) provide plenty of storage options. Drop-seat and double fly-zip configurations ensure easy access to the bib, both front and back. The suspenders are easy to adjust, and it also features a RECCO reflector in the leg. The internal gaiters are simple and will easily fit over any boot, and the pant cuff has a cinch added for adjustability.

Fit
The PowSlayer bibs are best described as a regular fit, though they are a tad on the baggy side compared to other bibs in this test. The pant leg length is consistent with sizing.
