oneplankawanka Chk Session's.. the best in da biz in my opinion...Also, Most Jackets have powder skirts?? works in keeping deep snow out unless I biff it and go over the bars on a Pow Pow day... I like bibs I ride em, but I prefer pants made by Sessions; Incredible features that make me buy em over and over. I like the Summit line. chek it out.

SFshredder I don't really like the look of bibbed pants, but they do serve a great function. I just personally can't bring myself to wear them.

baxter I think I might try them this year. I hate the dreaded "snow-butt" more than anything else in the world. It ruins my whole day. I think once you get them adjusted correctly, they would work pretty well. I'm from the Midwest (Iowa to be exact), so overalls don't make me cringe.....

true_richard i'm not too concerned with the look IF they work better. i'm more of a function over form guy.

but if it's a major pita to get them adjusted just right, i might just stick with the regular ol' style.

now to decide how big of a size to get. hrmm. i've gotten to be a bit of a fat ass, plus on icy days i wear padded shorts under my pants... so gotta make sure i have clearance room for them.

SpAcEmAn SpLiFF it definately works in the keeping snow out your ass dept, but they also do look mad dorky. i also didnt like the suspenders on my shoulders; when i made it too tight, it was uncomfortable, when i loosened it, it would fall off my shoulders. its hard to get it just right

true_richard hrm, still undecided. i don't often get to ride deeeep pow... it's more that i eat **** & rag doll, resulting in snow down my pants.

Anyways bro bibbed pants have that nice feature of blocking snow if you're riding deep pow. Its pretty damn nifty won't lie.

alildusty I wore a Spyder Bib last season but they weren't baggy enough for my taste so i bought a sessions bib this season. They're great for keeping out snow and you really don't feel the straps. And if you're concerned with the way they look, just wear the straps between your base layer and you're top layer. (ie over your underarmour & under your t-shirt/long sleeve tee

need new pants: regular or bibbed?

need new pants this season

tons of options out there, i know

but the one spec i've been considering is switching to a bibbed pant w/ suspenders in order to prevent snow from finding it's way up my jacket & down my pants. (it happens. horny snow, i guess!)

buuut, i've never worn bibbed pants so i'm not really sure what to expect w/ the overall suspender straps and all.


annoying on the shoulders?

pros? cons? anyone switched? glad you did? want to go back?

your input is greatly appreciated.
