Description

The bulletproof, waterproof breathable answer you’ve been pining for.

Whether you’re heading for Wasatch depths or Alps gnar, the waterproof breathable Stoic Bombshell Bib wields comfort and fit like Nature wields her elements. Fully-welded construction paired with mechanical stretch fabric creates a dynamic storm fortress that won’t inhibit movement, and the removable softshell bib offers options for changing conditions. Lock down the zippered gaiters when the day looks deep, and bust open the mesh-backed inner-thigh vents when it’s time to hike that line for one more ride. The Bombshell Bib’s Keprotech-reinforcements stand up to ski edges, crampons, and rock out cropping, and the bib suspenders adjust for deep or shallow days and the waist tabs offer another line of customization. These bibs love everything from hiking to riding the lifts, so Stoic’s 3-D ergonomic fit creates plenty of moving room for boot packing and skinning, without weighing you down in fabric.

Great Shell

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bib pants are great!
The price is good as well I have worn these pants for 3 seasons ad they have held up without issue. The material seams light but it actually stands up well.

These pants are sick, but i'm not sure if i should go with a small or a medium. I'm about 5'7" and 140 lbs. I wear a size 29 in jeans and they fit comfortably with just a little room. Any ideas?

Finally nice fit, but as always, some serious flaws

I'll start with the fact I liked the material due to its strechy nature. In reality, the fabric is not very waterproof. It seemed to me that no DWR was used because the first days out with them, any precip that landed on them soaked right in.

They also have weak wind-blocking capabilities. On some gusty days off the Aiguille du Midi, I was quite frigid.

I do like the détachable bib part. It helps to keep the mid section warm and hold stuff like a beacon (yes I put it in my pocket).

On to the biggest fail: all the snaps are basically useless. The other day I post-holing up a couloir and every few steps i had to stuff the inner liner into my boot straps to keep it from coming up and snow from falling in my boot.

It's shit like that proves very little real-world R&D went into the product. Either that or they just don't care.

Overall, you get what you pay for. It's cute to see their high MSRP, but the fact that these are available so cheaply gives an indicator of their real value.

Best bib I have ever had

The leg cut/seams are nicely articulated for easy of movement. I love the softshell upper section, breathable and very easy to move around in. The material is nice and lightweight... but that also means it provides not real insulation so you will have to layer underneath (I just wore it 10-15 F and 20 mph winds and it was a little chilly with a pair of thermals underneath).

For freedom of movement you can see how easy it is for my to squat down this video of me (I'm wearing protective padded shorts underneath) -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBBpTchyCEA

I love the bib pockets (fit my phone and valuables easily and comfortably) and the reinforced leg cuff (I was tend to shred them as my legs are short at 30" inseam and the cuffs of my pants tend to drag when I walk).

The sizing is true to size... which means size up for most Americans who don't realize that their waist is actually is 3-6 inches larger than the number on their pants (Gap, Old Navy, Levis, Dockers, etc all do this to make us feel better). I'm 5'9 150 lbs with a slim waistline and the Medium fit me perfectly even with a pair of padded protective shorts underneath (I do have big thighs though as I can free weight squat 300 lbs).

These are my favorite pair of bib pants out of the several models (Burton, Oakley, Sessions, Arcteryx, Bonfire) I've tried/used over the past decade.

Who has a Large Stoic Bombshell Bib 2010 they want to sell me? Want these!

Responded on

I have a pair they are medium but the sizing is off by about 2 inches. so a medium fits more like a large.

Responded on

I have some Larges - Tang color. Skiied in them once - just too long for me (unless I have ski boots on).

I'd sell them, as rolling them up is just goofy and there is no way to shorten them properly. Shoot me a note.

Worth every penny

Went two days in a row to Big Bear and those pants are so comfortable and wind, water resistant, that i did not needed to change after the 6 hours of skiings. Everyone looking for pants which keep you dry, but still be comfortable. this is the perfect choice.

I'm trying to exchange my pair since they ripped first day I used them near the cuff (my edges had just been sharpened). The rep said more won't be available until Fall 2011. Hope the colors will go with my Tahoe Blue bombshell!

Hi! I'm 5,7, about 140 lb, wich size should I get?

Responded on

A medium. I'm 5'7" about 148lbs. 29 waist. By the sizing chart, it says you should get a small. Let's just say I had trouble zipping it on. I returned them last week for a medium. Hopefully they ship today.

happy boy

only had them on the mountain one time but they were great. was heading into an unknown area that looked like we did not want to be in, so decided to hike out. was happy to have the vents because I was starting to feel like a thanksgiving turkey in the oven. pockets are great but with that said the two front pockets are very deep and you can lose your keys pretty easy, which I did. tore the whole car apart and everything out to find that the keys were in my pocket, which I did check first. seem to be well built, and will write more later after I put them through a season of skiing tight glades.

Sweet Bibs

These Bibs felt a little tight at first but are now quit comfortable after only a few days of wearing. The 20K water proofing isn't 100% water proof, but even on a very wet day I stayed dry underneath. Not much else to say... they are pretty awesome.

Oh.. but one more thing... if you are thinking of getting these bibs in Orange with the Marmot Genesis Jacket in Blue... don't. I already have that outfit. Pictured below.

Awesome bibs

These bibs are fantastic. The fit does run a little small so keep that in mind. I'm 5'8", 35" waist and I went with the large; glad I did instead of the medium as I'm sure they wouldn't have fit. I have plenty of wiggle room left and feel the fit is just about perfect. I was worried about the inseam length, I have a 30" inseam and was concerned, even with boots on, that these would be too long for me at 32.8" inseam for the large. No cuff dragging walking through the parking lot.The build of these bibs is awesome. They are light but incredibly waterproof. Lots of pockets to stow gear which is nice. I feel the cuffs fit great around ski boots, can't complain there. Overall I'm very pleased with these bibs, looking to get the Bombshell jacket based on how much I like these bibs.

So I really want a pair of these, partly...

So I really want a pair of these, partly because I'm a fan of the Stoic quality, and partly because Stoic products fit me very well. However, there are no more left in my size (L), with none coming in on the horizon.
So, you have Arc'teryx, which costs a gazillion $$, or North Face, which seems to no longer be the quality it once was... and other than that, I haven't tried any other brands in a while.

Anyone out there have a recommendation of other brands that have a similar fit & quality to Stoic?

Sizes run small.

These sizes run small. I have a 29 waist and the small didn't fit at all. Otherwise, looks great

Ti-zang

Love these bibs for storm days. The Bombshell material is really lightweight and un-restrictive, and despite initial concerns about the fabric’s durability due to fact that they’re so lightweight, they’ve proven tough enough for shrubs, ski edges, and other pant-tearing nasties. The removable bib does a great job of sealing out the elements on deep days, and the Bombshell breathes surprisingly well—never ever approached overheating. Also, the bright orange makes it nearly impossible for touring partners to lose sight of you.

Fit Small

I really wanted to like these, but they fit really small. I wear a 32 and the M was tight in the butt and legs, and the waist was borderline. Medium in any other pants I own are loose on me, so this is definitely an anomaly. Can't tour in tight pants.Size up, waaay up.This review refers to the previous year (09/10) pants.

They are built really nice, and are light weight, if they fit, I think they would be great.
