Usually, the limelight of clothing reviews goes to the jackets, but let’s talk about the pants first. These bib pants are not your regular ski pants, and that’s what I really liked about them. A bib style is pretty common for freeride pants, but this specific variant opens from the side with one long zipper and actually has no waist belt, or any kind of waist fixation at all. Some might call it simply a bag, but I find this a particularly useful design for ski trousers that are primarily worn in the backcountry, in deep powder or inclement weather. However, you should be aware that this is not a tight fitting kit. If you like your clothing right next to your body, you probably should look elsewhere. Personally, I really enjoyed this type of design. It is particularly nice when wearing a back protector; in fact, testing these pants was the first time that my protector vest didn’t conflict with the waist of my pants. Maybe this is a problem that only I have, but with other pants, the back protector often gets hung up on the waist of my pants. Not this time! The pants are held by suspenders that run freely through a loop at the back, and therefore need adjustment only on one side. It’s a clever design that allows the bib to follow all body movements effortlessly. On our shooting day, Roy found it a bit loose and would have preferred a different setup. I didn’t have any problems with it, which might be due to the pants riding a bit higher on me due to my slightly smaller height.
