Norrona Trollveggen Gore-Tex Pro Bib

A top-quality (and top-price) Gore-Tex Pro bib. Tough, waterproof, breathable, and wind tight. Built for mountaineering but works well for rando/telemark and light backcountry skiing. It’d be a shame to use and wear it out away from snow and ice. Like many outdoor people, I’m always on the lookout for a deal. Not to the point where I obsessively pick through sales racks of outdoor clothing or haunt discount websites, but I’ll take a peek if I’m passing by. Sometimes that works out well,… Full review

Columbia Bugaboo IV Pant

Omni-Heat is no joke, making these waterproof snow pants super warm without the need for overly bulky layers. I've come to expect high-quality products from Columbia, and these pants are no exception. I've used them for downhill skiing and snow tubing so far. I'm 5'8" @ 180lbs, and the size Medium/Regular fit me pretty well, though I could use the ability to tighten down the waist a bit more for the ideal fit. The small was too small for me though. I have unrestricted range of motion in these pants,… Full review

Outdoor Research Hemispheres Bibs

The Outdoor Research Hemispheres Bib is an excellent snowsport pant. It was designed with backcountry touring in mind, but works well as an all-mountain pant, and is equally functional both on and off-piste. It has an extremely strong construction and fits me well, (I'm pretty skinny and there's still some room left in them, although this isn't a problem). The full Gore-Tex construction holds up to the brand's waterproof, all-weather protection claims and will keep the wearer dry even in pouring… Full review

Patagonia PowSlayer Bibs

Patagonia's PowSlayer Bibs are a premium, lightweight yet durable, waterproof snowsports pants for the backcountry-focused skier and rider. They work equally well for inbounds and side-country trips too. Their Gore-Tex Pro fabric keeps out all types of precipitation—not just powder—reliably and comfortably all day long. With a 100-percent recycled face fabric, they bring together environmental credibility with technical waterproof/breathable performance. At $599 the PowSlayer's MSRP is decidedly… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Hestia Bib

When your bibs last ten years you need to tell folks. This is my go-to bib for any winter activity that I will be human powered. Superb durability and fantastic venting. The greatest advantage is the ability to easily zip and unzip legs for breathable venting during uphill travel. I paused as I went to grab my bibs for a day of skinning and skiing the other day. Wow, ten years. So often we complain about the shortcoming of a piece of gear. But I just have to give a shout-out to Mountain Hardwear. Full review

Salomon Sideways Bib Pant

The are awesome, and very versatile bibs that come with plenty of pockets and can handle anything you throw their way. I have only used these bibs for half a season now but so far I am very impressed. Full disclosure I very much prefer bibs over snow pants, I like having the extra pockets, warmth and not getting snow down my pants. With that being said these are a great combo pant that can be used either way. There are more than enough pockets to stash your lunch, keys, wallet phone and whatever… Full review

Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib

All in all, an absolute 5-star product. I've been using these pants for three years now and have nothing but positive words to say. I use them in a variety of sports, activities and conditions, but primarily for mountaineering, and backcountry and resort skiing. They are incredibly durable and, after three years of use, are still in great shape. All the high-wear areas are reinforced with stronger fabric or extra stitching and this extra quality has made a huge difference. The different size and… Full review

Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib

Bomber bibs...packable, waterproof, light, and super durable. As a member of Gore MountainTechs, I have the opportunity to field test GORE-TEX gear in some of the harshest conditions...and these bibs are amazing.   They're lightweight and packable, yet thick enough to stand up to tough abrasion on rock/ice. They articulate well in the knee and hip, but can sometimes bunch up in the crotch when high stepping...just the nature of the beast with bibs.  That is truly the only con I can think of with… Full review

Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib

Great for winter activities. I have used these for winter mountaineering and backcountry skiing. The fabric is thin but has been really durable when skiing through the trees. I really like the pockets on the bid for storing small items. The only issue I have with the pants is that the cuffs are really tight around my ski boots. On the bright side, no snow gets in. I am 5'11", a 180 lbs with a 34" waist and a large fits good. As a disclaimer, I am affiliated with Gore for product testing of Gore-tex… Full review
