Description

The side of a mountain is not the place to be worrying about your pants.

There are times in the high alpine when the sun is out, visibility and spirits are high, and the going is smooth. Then there are the times when it seems like the surface of the moon might just be a more hospitable place than the side of the mountain you are hunkered down on. What's more, the time it takes to go from one extreme to the other can be close to nothing. For ultimate protection and rugged durability in unpredictable mountain conditions, the Norrøna Trollveggen Gore-Tex Pro Shell Bib Pants can be trusted time and time again.

At the heart of these technical pants is the 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro fabric that offers increased durability, excellent breathability, and the waterproofness you have come to know and trust in a Gore-Tex product. Additionally, all zippers are YKK Aquaseal, which are 100% water- and windproof. Other key features of this bib pant include removable gaiters with a lace loop, reinforced panels on the lower leg for protection against crampons, and large pockets. In case things heat up on the hike, 3/4 length side zippers provide ventilation and easy access to boots and underlayers.  An adjustable waist and articulated knees help the Trollveggen fit perfectly and will have you forgetting that you're wearing such tough pants. Take these things into the death zone, and you may just have a chance of getting out alive.

Bomber but there are drawbacks...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

SO I love the Trollveggen, but the disappointment for me came when the leg was too tight to fit over a ski boot. Unfortunately, most of the mountaineering I do involves skiing these days. Aside from that, the YKK zips awesome, the fit is perfect and the construction is hands down the best on earth... If it was not for the leg being so tapered, these would have been my go too bib for a few years to come. Now I just go a little baggier with the Lofoten bib, which is absolutely bomb! For reference, I am 5'9 165 and the smalls fit, but the suspenders make the inseam fit a little uncomfortable so I sized them out and I went with the mediums to get the best overall fit. I felt the medium gave me the best fit for dynamic movement and breathed better than the small. Norrona is pretty true to size in the smalls and mediums (I cannot attest to the futility and sizing of the bigs) so if your in that range go with what you would normally go with and you should be straight.

Great Bib

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Used these on Rainier during a snow storm on the way down and they worked like a champ. Kept me warm and dry the entire time
