Powder Magazine Reviews Best Jackets, Pants

RIP Powder. We miss you already.

Powder Magazine just put out what could be its final issue ever—and we’re feeling the loss already. An integral catalogue of ski culture at its finest, Powder has been a beloved part of the ski family for decades. To all the staff, writers, and photographers who made the magazine what it was: Thank you.

Before it went away, though, Powder did give one last shout out to their favorite ski pants and jackets of the year.

The Siren Bib was named one of the best ski pants for women. “Designed for big backcountry and mountaineering pursuits, the rugged ripstop material, high waterproof rating, and excellent fit and style make the Siren a go-to for touring and other badass mountain adventures,” writes tester Lindsay Strange. “This is an under-boob bib, which I love, because I don’t need extra material on top. It features Flylow’s signature barn door opening in back and fits like a dream by hugging curves without restriction. The thigh-pocket placement keeps my phone safe and accessible. I appreciate the mini zippered pocket on the chest that is so handy for Skittles.”

The Malone Jacket got honors as one of the year’s best men’s ski jackets. “Can you call a jacket a quiver killer? I just did. Another timeless piece from the Tahoe-based brand, the Malone is classic Flylow: innovative, highly functional for all conditions, and no unnecessary features,” writes Spencer Harkins. Three layers of their Stretchy Stormshell Intuitive fabric gives the Malone a 20k/20k waterproof breathability rating, while fully taped seams and OmniBloq DWR coating keep the elements out. This jacket also dries out fast, which is great for hut trips or multi-day adventures. A neo-classic fit with added length in the back, anyone can wear this jacket and look like you know what you’re doing without looking like a try-hard.”

The Siren Bib is for those who prefer less fabric up top. You won’t sacrifice durability. But you will get a lighter weight, more breathable bib for backcountry touring and, thanks to eVent DV Expedition fabric, it’ll keep you cool by releasing heat before you sweat. The Siren is streamlined and durable with simple design, so you can focus on the day’s objective. A kangaroo front pouch stores your essentials, outer thigh vents release steam, and reinforced cuffs keep you feeling tough.

Malone Jacket

Think of the Malone Jacket like your one-ski quiver, your favorite boards that do everything well. This jacket, made from Tactic 3-layer softshell, is light, stretchy, and breathable enough for a backcountry tour but still substantial enough for pounding laps at the resort. Stormy out? We made it with a quick-drying fabric that repels wind and sleet. If you’re going in the backcountry and don’t want extra weight, simply zip out the powder skirt.
