The isolated backcountry is your playground, and The North Face Women's Free Thinker Bib Pant keeps you dry out there all winter long. A 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro membrane and fully taped seams give the pant guaranteed waterproof and breathable protection, and a 2-layer HyVent membrane and fully taped seams at the bib make sure you stay dry from your chest to your ankles while you plow down those powder-capped peaks. A relaxed fit leaves plenty of room in the Free Thinker for mid-layers on the coldest days, and the adjustable waist tabs ensure you get the ideal fit no matter how many layers you have on. Zippers at the inner thigh and center front let out some steam while you hike up mountains, and you can remove the bib and suspenders for a sunny day at the ski resort. The ankle gaiters hook to your boots to keep snow out of them, and cuff-zips--which The North Face reinforced for durability--help you pull the pants over your boots. Water-resistant zippers at the pockets and vents prevent snow from seeping in. And the cargo pockets feature the Loft Lift System to prevent bulk.
Ripping down never-ending powder runs and crushing vert miles calls for waterproof bibs that can take all-day abuse in the backcountry. The bib front can be unzipped for improved ventilation, or it can be removed entirely if you only want to use the built-in suspenders. A durable, waterproof 2L HyVent twill exterior has a DWR (durable water resistant) exterior to shed moisture when you re skiing deep and steep territory. Relaxed fit provides extra room throughout the leg so you can dig deep while driving though turns. Belt loops are clip-in compatible with select jackets from TNF to seal out wind, the cold, and moisture, whether you re skiing in whiteout conditions or you wipe out on the slopes. If an avalanche is triggered, the nearly weightless embedded RECCO transponder in these pants can be pinpointed by the detectors carried by the rescue team.

The women's Free Thinker Bib shell pants by The North Face are built tough to withstand demanding use on big, steep mountains, offering highly breathable Gore-Tex(R) Pro protection to keep you dry. Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer construction delivers excellent waterproof, windproof and highly breathable protection to keep you dry and comfortable, even in harsh conditions. Detachable bib offers waterproof protection, adjustable suspenders and a touch of stretch for comfort; use bib for added warmth and protection or remove it if it's not needed. Embedded RECCO(R) reflector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors, helping speed up the search for a buried avalanche victim. The North Face Free Thinker Bib shell pants adjust via waist tabs for a comfortable fit; zippered inner thigh vents let you dump excess heat and provide cooling ventilation. Internal stretch gaiters have gripper elastic and boot hooks to keep gaiters in place and prevent snow from entering legs; cuffs also have zip gussets for use over boots. Reinforced cuffs stand up to sharp edges and abrasion; backsides of cuffs can be hitched up via internal "Lot Lift System" to avoid uneccesary cuff wear when walking. Water-resistant zippers on the two hand pockets and two cargo pockets help keep contents dry. Clip-in tabs let you connect the bib shell pants to a compatible jacket (sold separately) for an integrated, protective barrier.
