I am looking at ordering some Patagonia Powder Bowl Pants and Jacket online as they are unavailable retail in Australia.
The problem I have is despite them having a sizing chart, I have never owned Shell clothing , my old gear has always been insulated.
According to their chart I would be large, but as I will be wearing this gear in Japan where it gets down to -25c reguarly and I will be skiing in deep powder I guess I will need a good fleece under the jacket so possibly I would go up to an XL in the jacket.
I am 5 11" and around 184 lbs.
I currently wear Icebreaker leggings and 2 Icebraker layers under my insulated Nevica jacket so I am guessing I will have to add a fleece ,whether I would get a jacket or vest I am unsure.
Any help would be much appreciated.
PS , for those that have not been to Hokkaido Japan its generally snowing heavily with often windy conditions on the open country and face city powder, so extremely cold.
