These get it right

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

Great fit, great style, bomber construction, all the pockets you want. These are exactly what you want for resort skiing. Not Gore-Tex but bombshell will get the job done. Love the stretchy bib material, love the fact you can zip it off. Pockets eat up my phone, wallet, avy beacon (yes, I zip it into a pocket and leash it to my belt...dont go crazy on me), lift pass and a snack. Very bomber construction with cuff guards and good strong materials. Very comfortable. You'll love 'em!

second pair

    bought my first pair two years ago & have used them mainly for resort skiing in rainy Washington & a handful of times hiking/snowshoe/skiing the backcountry. They have been great so far, lots of pockets are the key as most bibs/pants rarely have more than two pockets. I'm 6'2" with a 35" waist & the XL fit perfect(a little baggy & free moving). I WAS SUPER EXCITED TO GET MY SECOND PAIR AS THE DESCRIPTION SAYS THEY HAVE SIDE ZIPS-THEY DON'T. They only have the inner thigh zips which are awesome but a bib with both would be way better for hiking. For resort skiing these are the pants I choose over my arc'teryx minuteman & my mountain hardware berillium pants. Great price for great bibs.

    Fantastic bib pants.

      Almost through my first season with these and they have been awesome! Super dry and comfy with a little bit of stretch. Other reviews said they fit tight but i disagree. I went with the XL's and I'm 6'4" 240 and they fit great. I would happily recommend these to a friend.

      Put them to the test.

        Test 1: Get in the shower. On a scale from 1-10 how wet does the protected area get? 2

        Test 2: Rip a huge one and see how long for you to smell it. 2.8 seconds

        Test 3:Is there an awesome flap for you to take a crap out of? FAIL

        Test 4: Ask six random women if your ass looks good while wearing them.

        5 yes 1 no

        Material is too thin

        • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I bought these with the jacket, love the jacket returned the pants. I was riding early season and caught a small branch in the leg, it tore along the seam from the knee to the crotch. I bought a nice pair of Patagonia's that were sweet until ski patrol cut those off. I suggest going with a different bib..

        3rd Day Failure

        • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        The fit and weight of the pants were suitable.

        3rd day of use in Japan (skiing) the seam behind the left knee came apart (glued). Nothing struck the area to cause a rip/tear or extra pressure placed on that area of the leg. Adhesive simply did not hold. Luckily I had taken a spare pair of pants so I didn't have to go looking for a new pair at the slopes. I don't know if I would be able to get the correct size in that area.

        Would have been happy with the performance of the item otherwise

        Nice Bib!

        • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

        the bib feature is great, big pockets on the bib part for just about anything. and the pants are tough, cuts the wind down just like the jackets... however make sure to bring your base layers, its just a shell, went to Crested Butte last weekend, and brought it thought the tough environment of -5 to -20 F it cut the wind but was still F#$@ cold. I think its a great pant for warm/mild days and back-country tours or hut trips. They fit perfect for snowboard boots and ski boots. I'm 6'2, 180-185 lbs and wear a size 12 snowboard and ski boot and I got a Large. kind of a little tight in inseam but with long-underwear or compression-underwear they fit perfect.

        Epic Bib!

        • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

        Lightweight, athletic fit waterproof / windproof pants. The bib portion is removable, which is nice when it gets warm out. The pants have adjustable velcro straps to tailor the fit to your liking, and there are covered snaps on the back that you can use to button down your Stoic Bombshell jacket's powder skirt.



        One rear pocket, one leg pocket, 2 hand pockets.



        I prefer a lightweight shell so I can layer underneath depending on the conditions. I normally only use 1 base layer.



        The fit is athletic and perfect. Not skin tight, not overly baggy. I'm 6'4" 220lbs and tried both the L and XL before going with the L. If I had to nitpick, the length could be like 1 inch longer, but the fit is fine IMO.



        This is my 2nd season with Stoic, and I've never had any issues with durability of their gear.



        These pants rock, especially when you compare them to TNF or any of the other brands. Give them a try and you'll fall in love. Promise.

        Epic Bib!

        Seam failure

        • Familiarity:I've used it several times

        These bibs just ended an extended trip early. Left leg inseem and pocket failed (about 12") and cargo pocket opened up. Many other seems are showing signs of failure upon close inspection at home. I really hope this is not a wide spread problem and hope for some kind of explanation from Stoic. I have been using the bombshell bib and jacket all season and have been loving it until now. Now I can't trust it, and worse.... I have to find replacements fast. Needless to say both jacket and bibs are going to be sent back Monday. My apologies to my bummed partner.... I'm not usually the guy with gear failures.



        BTW- Duck tape doesn't seam to stick to the bombshell very well.

        I had the same problem. My thigh pocket ripped. I had a pair of these from 2009 or 2010 and never had a problem with them, bought a new pair this season, and after 15 days, they've ripped. I try to love Stoic, but I'm quickly losing faith. Probably will go with MHW pants now...

        I had the same thing occur yesterday. Returned from a multi-day trip in Austria, put bibs in the wash (cold water) and the bibs literally came out in 10 different pieces. Every seam gave way, strangest thing I have seen lately. These were brand new from Christmas, and as mentioned, until this point I was quite pleased with the pants. I am in the processing of returning, the pant is out of stock, so I must go find a replacement. Backcountry has been helpful, no issues there...I wonder if this is an endemic problem with this pant.

        Interesting - I have a pair also from around 2009-10ish, wear them every time I ski, and they still look brand new and have been incredibly durable to branch snags, etc. Arguably, one of the best ski bibs on the market on a per dollar basis. I wonder if anyone from Backcountry.com can speak to any difference in manufacturing, etc?

        Stoic Bombshell is the Bomb

        • Familiarity:I've used it several times

        I am very happy with these pants / bibs they are confortable, warm (even for a shell) and kept me SUPER dry backcountry boarding. The gaiters are more than adequate even though they do not have a hook. DEFINITELY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

        Awesome

        • Familiarity:I've used it several times

        Returned the size L for a size M. I'm 5'10 175lbs and the medium fits perfect. Love having the option of using the bib. Bib pockets work great for cellphone/wallet. Used several times this season already varying weather conditions (including rain/snow mix). These pants kept me warm and dry with one thermal under layer (average temps around 25-30F). Hope the quality of these pants hold up for a few seasons because I love the fit.

        Sizing: Pretty baggy for a skinny guy

        • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

        Could be helpful when choosing sizes...



        I'm 6'0, 155 lbs and wear 32" jeans with a belt to snug. Size Medium: fit waist fine, length was good. But the cut is wide and baggy; there's a LOT of fabric flopping around the legs. Fine for lookin' cool at a resort, not ideal for hiking/skinning around in the backcountry all day. So I tried and kept the size Small: nearly too tight on the waist, a bit short on the length, but with a considerably slimmer cut.



        Definitely not an ideal pant on slim people for active/technical use, but since it's the only bib like it in the price range, I'm gonna put up with a marginal fit for better function.

        Awesome Bibs!

        • Familiarity:I've used it several times

        I love these bibs. They are plenty warm with a baselayer pant on underneath. Good ventilation in case you get warm. They fit extremely well. I am about 5'10 180lbs and I wear a large. The zip on/off bib feature is pretty cool too. I don't know why anyone would want to take it off though, its got two easily accessible and convenient pockets on it and it keeps your pants from falling down. Especially important for skiers. It does have belt loops as well if you need some extra help. Lots of pockets to store your items. The cuffs around the ankles are reinforces with stronger material than the rest of the pant, extremely beneficial in my opinion. The bombshell jacket interfaces great with these pants.

        Lotta Bang for the Buck

        • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

        These pants are very waterproof. In addition to being pretty steezy, they are also super functional (lots of pockets, and you can remove the bib if you want to) and I'm amazed at how well they circulate air. I'm not sure how they'll perform during spring skinning without full length side zips, but I'm very stoked at their durability after a month of hard charging through Montana elements: only one tiny rip from a direct puncture, no wear from countless tree pummeling. The XL fits me great: 76" and 190lbs. Best bib I've owned yet, comparable to Trew Gear at a better price.

        Not worn, but still good!

          I have not yet worn this for skiing, but trying it on for fit felt comfortable and can't wait to test it. From the feel, it felt as if it would keep me warm as well as allow movement. Perhaps I might review again after actual experience thru the chills.

          Are these coming back for this year? I have a pair from last year, which I would not recomend for durability. They have ripped in 4 spots from brushing pines.

          -Otherwise an awesome pant! They jacket is made of a much better/ higher durability fabric.

          Hi, I'm hoping some gear heads on here can...

          Hi, I'm hoping some gear heads on here can help me. I'm changing over my pants to a bib style. I've been looking at the Stoic Bombshell bib, and the North Face Anchor Bib. The price is almost $100 less for the TNF (ebay) but I like the style and seam welding of the Stoics. I'm 6'2", 250, with a 42 waist (including base/thermal layer) and usually take something with an inseam of 32-34. Any one know which is going to fit me the best? I like a baggier fit, and usualy ahve stuff in all my pockets. I just got a seasons pass to Lake Louise (Alberta), and hope to have a 50 day year (24 last year), so durability does factor in. Anyone wanna chime in, help me make this choice?

          Best Answer

          I have never owned a set of the Anchor Bibs, but I have put a few pair on. Between the 2, I would go with the bombshell any day. I got rid of a North Face pant and jacket set and traded it for the bombshell bib/Jacket and have never been happier, and it cost 1/3 of the price. Go Stoic and don't look back, you wont regret it. For whats it's worth, I wear a L (6'4 / 220 / 36in waist)

          Thanks Thomas, I got the midnight/agave XL Bombshell pants. To anyone that is tall/thick - size up, I got the XL, and they fit almost perfect, I'm assuming that once I get back in to snow shape they will be just right (too much summer beer :-( ) I agree that the gaiter on the bottom isn't a perfect fit, but I have to get out in the snow and see how they hold up from a day of thrashing. The material is a little stretchy, but I see that as a benefit, after having enough gore-tex/Event material get scrapes and rips from glade runs. They breath like they are not even on. I was in full pants and jacket sitting in my house for 30 mins and didn't even feel uncomfotable, let alone start sweating. The only BIG negative was the shipping. No where on the BC.com website do they give you an idea of the customs fees that get charged. I have gotten alot of things fomr the states, but this was by far the largest borkerage fees I have ever paid. $239 for the pants, $37 for shipping, and $70!!! for the damn customs fees. A heads up to anyone else in Canada, you can keep the receipt and get a tax rebate from the Gov! All in all though, very happy so far, can't wait to start shredding!

          If its convenient, wrt shipping, have it shipped to the postal outlet in Eureka MT. (Montana Shipping Outlet). Drive down and pick it up. It's only 40 minutes south of Fernie. Claim it when you cross the border. If its made in Canada or the USA you should only have to pay GST. If its made in china the duty might be around 10%. The shipping to MT will probably be free.

          Description says these have side zips. Can you please post a pic of the side zip in the 12-13 version of this product? I see one at the cuff and at the bib, but not on the pant itself. This is is critical for me in the decision to buy these since i'm a sweaty pig and inside leg vents are inadequate for me on the 'up" THanks

          I'm really thinking about getting these...

          I'm really thinking about getting these bibs for this coming winter. I had arcteryx previously, and I tried to like the theta sv bib - the waterproofing is bulletproof as always - but they do get clammy, buckle on the pants never stayed clipped and I find the skinny - pants fit on the bib uncomfortable. Finally, the style isn't for me. I need a replacement, and I've been stoked on Stoic gear lately - the styling is more to my taste (less J Crew-ish) and the price point is sweet by comparison. I picked up the bombshell jacket already, and love the fit and the look. The waterproofing remains to be tested, but I have faith . I am worried a bit about the external fabric - the stretchy fabric is way comfortable and light, but I ski in the trees all day long, and it seems like it would rip much more easily than the more rigid theta material. Anyone have durability issues with this material?

          I've had several accidents involving trees in my bibs. I thought they would tear, but after 2 seasons scuffs are as bad as it gets for them. I am looking to get a 3rd season out of them now. I have wrecked 3 jackets during that time, and BC.com has replaced them every time no questions asked. Even if you do tear your pants (trees will eat anything sooner or later) who is going to give you better customer service than BC.com?

          What's the best way to repair a tear in the Bombshell fabric (better than stitching it :) ?
          Managed to pierce mine with a ski pole tip I think, would like to ensure the hole doesn't get bigger with use.

          Best Answer

          A patch of material is good, and then use a seam grip, or aquaseal, or a Polyurethane glue. apply the glue to the patch and apply to the hole. then add a piece of wax paper and lay a large book or dictionary on top to keep it flat. wait over night and you have a patch that is well bonded and waterproof. The goretex patches, and other patches with a self adhesive on one side i have tried to do not stay on.

          Just a few questions on these bibs: a....

          Just a few questions on these bibs:
          a. sizing, there seem to be mixed feelings here, some folks say they run small, others say the returned for a smaller size... in the 5'10" freeheeling frame, I am guessing Medium, but don't want to be restricted w/ my motion on the mountain

          b. Materials/ breathability. What's the story here? I work in patagonia rubicon pants, they are awesome, for what I do, but I do not want to tour in them. Fly low chemical pants, AWESOME for touring, but I just sold them to get a pair of bibs (possibly these). I am gauging these pants might be right in the middle of those two articles of clothing?

          b'. I see there are inner thigh vents on these bibs, that's rocking, do they work well? I am guessing its nothing like the fly low cross ventilation factor, but does it do the trick well?

          c. Cuff guards @ bottom, solid material? I don't want to shred them up bad.

          Any/all insight, commentary, greatly appreciated.
          Cheers

          I just purchased these bibs when BC put them on sale. I'm 5'8", 19 with a 31 inch waist and about the same inseam. I'm not into to clothes that restrict my ability to do an activity and these bibs fit the bill quite nicely. The bibs do not run small as some people described ( but they are on the tight side in the waist). The smalls fit me perfectly in the waist, the suspenders are a bit too long ( just loose not really supporting the pants) for my short torso with little room for adjustment but the bibs stay up just fine. The legs definitely have room for a couple more inches of leg to fill them. I am a competitive cyclist and the pants fit my big thighs nicely. I unfortunately have not taken them touring yet but so far skiing on the unusually hot december days in Colorado( honestly like spring skiing to be honest, some people are even just wearing tee shirts) I have had no qualms with the breathability of the pants. The thigh zips are very functional in allowing heat to escape over the long term, but they do not dump out all the heat immediately. compared to a schroeller pant they definitely hold in more heat and moisture but for a hard shell they are great. As for the durability the construction of these pants looks super solid. The cuff gaurd surrounds the entire base and appears to be a very durable material. A nice feature is the durability that also appears to be in the internal gaiters. On my last pair of ski pants this tended to rip but with the bombshells this is well made. I would definitely recommend these pants, because atleast if it doesnt snow this year you will look good shredding, despite your free heeling preferences. I'll let you know about the touring after I do Avi. II the first week in January.
