Powder skirts offer additional protection from the elements. Built in around the waist of the jacket, they are generally elastic or another stretchy material that can be buttoned, zipped, or snapped closed around your pants. This helps keep drafts and snow out of the coat. Many powder skirts are designed to snap into pants from that brand to create an integrated outfit that offers supreme weather protection. For jackets with powder skirts select Yes and for jackets without select No.
