Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Monstrous Norwegian ice pillars and Chugach powder can leave you smiling but soaked. When conditions dictate the need for bomber, waterproof/breathable and windproof big-mountain alpine climbing bibs, our Super Alpines prove durable, dry and mobile. They feature 3-layer nylon new generation GORE-TEX(R) Pro fabric - now significantly more breathable, and without compromising protection or durability - with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, tough nylon outer and key-area reinforcements, and a distinct micro-grid interior that optimizes breathability. Watertight, fully separating side-zips allow easy on/off with boots and also form a drop seat; the two pressed-pleat napoleon chest pockets stay flat, and two more pockets sit on the thighs; trim, watertight zippers throughout feature cleanly designed openings without excess weight and bulk. The ski-boot-compatible lower legs have scuff guards, internal gaiters, shock-cord adjustments and tie-down loops.

Designed for the athlete who goes big, whether it's climbing remote peaks, traversing across desolate landscape or shredding on huge mountains, the Patagonia Super Alpine Bib can go to battle. The 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric is guaranteed waterproof and breathable. The face fabric--40D nylon with 150D nylon placed in high-abrasion areas--is durable to withstand light contact with a crampon or ski edge, and feature an additional DWR treatment so moisture beads up and rolls off. Form meets function with the Super Alpine Bib. Full-coverage bibs with hook-and-loop adjustable suspenders and drop-seat configuration provide full coverage, and the articulated seat and knees move easily with you through mountainous terrain. This bib has harness- and pack-compatible chest and thigh pockets with bulk-reducing Slim Zips, so it won't rub you the wrong way or slow you down when you need to grab gear quickly. The chest pockets are bellowed so that they fold flat against your chest. Patagonia has thought about the hassle of boots with this bib, too. The lower leg is ski-boot compatible and has external scuff guards and adjustable internal gaiters, and the watertight full size zips keep weather out when you need it and can offer ventilation and ease with taking boots on and off. Now, you just have to get to the mountain.

Greenland?s Tasermiut Fjord and the Patagonia?s Chalten massif are at opposite ends of their hemispheres, but both have mind-bending climbing ? and thoroughly drenching storms. Our Super Pluma Jacket is the alpine climbing jacket of choice for balancing light-and-fast with enhanced durability and waterproof/windproof and breathable protection. The 3-layer nylon new generation GORE-TEX Pro fabric is now significantly more breathable, but without compromising its legendary protection or durability. The face fabric has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, and the interior has a minimalist yet distinct micro-grid backer that optimizes breathability. The pressed-pleat torso pockets are streamlined so you can see your feet, while trim, watertight zippers make for clean and easy pit-zips and pocket openings. Underarm gussets keep the jacket down when you raise your arms, and sleek Touch Point System embedded cord locks in the hood and hem allow quick adjustments without opening the jacket. Other details include a helmet-compatible, 2-way-adjustable Optimal Visibility Hood with a laminated visor, low-profile cuff closures with pleated gussets and a small internal zippered chest pocket.
