Patagonia offers its Powslayer jacket for both men and women. The women’s Powslayer is impressively lightweight, weighing in at just 522g. It’s been made using recycled material, and has been sewn in Fair Trade Certified factories.
The Powslayer is made using 100% recycled nylon. By choosing to use recycled nylon rather than virgin nylon, Patagonia’s used fewer resources like water, energy, and fossil fuel in the manufacturing process. By doing this they’ve also diverted waste from landfills, making it an all-around more sustainable option.
“A Gore-Tex Pro fabric makes sure this 3L jacket is extremely waterproof, breathable and durable”
Whilst being an extremely sustainable option, the Powslayer is also pretty hardcore on the technical front. A Gore-Tex Pro fabric ensures this 3L jacket is extremely waterproof, breathable, and durable. The riders who tend to face harsher conditions, and are afraid that their normal jacket might not be up for it, will find that the Powslayer can tackle more or less anything.
We’re happy to see that for something so technical and sustainably produced, the Powslayer is stylish too. It’s not as slim fitted as a typical backcountry tech-jacket, nor is it as colourful in its design, but we like its look nevertheless.
The Patagonia Powslayer Jacket has got a timeless look, so you won’t feel like you’ll have to trade it for something new when the 20/21 trends have run their course. It’s got Hulk-like abilities, and will carry you through any storm. You’ll like this jacket when its angry.
