Description

Makes blizzards feel like blue-bird days.

Thrive in the deepest, darkest days of winter when you're wearing the Stoic Men's Bombshell FZ Pant. This is an uncompromising storm-shell pant for skiers and snowboarders who need the protection of waterproof breathable three-layer fabric, supreme mobility, and the easy access of full-length side zips. The only thing that could make this pant better would be fully welded seams and some thigh vents ... oh wait, the Bombshell FZ has those too.

  • 3-Layer Bombshell fabric offers 20K-rated weatherproof protection and supreme breathability so you're comfortable, not stifled, underneath this pant
  • Mechanical stretch fabric construction keeps this pant flexible so your mobility isn't hindered when you're fully-layered and battened down
  • Fully welded seams increase the Bombshell’s durability over standard taped-seam pants
  • 3-D ergonomic fit offers uninhibited mobility without drowning you in excess fabric—if you tend to like a roomier fit, size up
  • Thigh vents banish excess body heat during long boot packs
  • Full-length side zippers allow you full access and the ability to remove these pants without taking off your boots (more useful than you think)
  • Powder gaiters slip over the top of your boots to keep snow out on deep days

Here's what others have to say...

Typical Utah Male : Female ratio!

Typical Utah Male : Female ratio!

Here you can witness the Stoic FZ pant in it's natural habitat on the far left. This was a day in which I BBQed post-skiing with this group of fine gentlemans.

Note the typical ratio found within the Little Cottonwood Canyon. 5 dudes and myself...though remarkably 80% of these specimens have girlfriends.

A true statistical anomaly.

The only single gent is actually the one sporting the Stoic pant...not sure what that says about Stoic pants, but you are free to draw your own conclusions.

Stoic Bombshell FZ Pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought Stoic gear for over two years now and I am very happy with it. Got the Bombshell Pants (XL) and Jacket (XXL). This is the only brand I have found so far that fits a tall (NOT big&tall) guy. Sleeves and legs are finally long enough on all the Stoic long sleeve gear I own.
6'7" at 255 lbs with a 34" - 36" waist

Performance of the pants so far: ridden 5 days in various conditions here the PNW. Low 20s to high 30s. Sunny, cloudy, rain and snow. Two days hiking in the backcountry. Those full length zippers are coming in handy to get rid of some extra heat on the way up. Hiking in mid 20s, I don't even wear a long base layer underneath. As long as you are moving they stay warm enough. Absolutely waterproof so far. But that is only 5 days. Cannot say anything about long term performance and waterproof rating until later.

I'm 6'4, 200 lbs, 34" inseam. I usually go with an XL. The last thing I want are "high-water" fit with the cuffs. Would an XL suit me well?

Responded on

The waist would be huge but the length should be fine. I'm a solid 38" waist and the xl is almost too big. I have a 32" inseam and the pants are plenty long on me

No Thigh Vents

The description of the product says it has thigh vents, but the pants I got do not. The small thigh zippers are for pockets and don't vent at all. Just FYI.

Responded on

Mine don't have thigh vents either. That being said, I haven't found a need for them yet. The "storm shell" description above is fairly accurate. There is nothing in the way of insulation in these pants. However, the waterproofing is top-notch, and I'm quite comfortable with the proper baselayer underneath them. It generally use a heavyweight baselayer on single-digit and below-zero days, and scale-down to a midweight or lightweight in the teens and twenties. They do run a bit big, but they are a stylish pant, and look great with the Bombshell jacket.

Runs big

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

So I just got the Stoic bombshell FZ's in large. I am 5'11" and 175 lbs and usually wear a 33-34 waist. The large one's were too big, so I had to return them. Bummer, cause they are out of mediums.

Responded on

I am almost your same size plus 10-15 pounds of muscle weight. Anyway a large was too big on me as well, but I went out and bought suspenders and converted the Stoic bombshell to overalls. It's almost as if they were designed that way in the first place. The pants pulled up nicely and now I have another 2-3 inches of coverage from powder. Still plenty of room in the crotch. Just an idea for anyone worried about the Stoic bombshell being too big.

5'10 190...Pants were WAY too small

I wish I hadn't listened to all the reviews saying these pants ran small.

I'm 5'10 190... The length was about right in a medium, but they were so tight I could barely fit them over my legs. I do lots of lower body strength training off the mountain, so if you love your squats and deads like me don't even think of sizing down. I guess all the skinny tall people leaving reviews should have tipped me off.

The pants seem awesome and I can't wait to get my mediums exchanged for larges so I can actually fit into them.

Responded on

did you guys get medium's? If you have not yet returned them swap me for my large's

Great for backcountry

I'm a size 34 in pants and got the large and they fit great, I'm 5'11" and they fit a little trimmer than regular snow pants. Great for skinning and a backcountry use. Super light weight.

I am 6 ft 155 pounds. I don't like a super technical fit but I don't like a super baggy fit either, something just right. Stuck between a medium and large. What do you think?

Finally a fit

I tried on the $300 3-ply offerings from TNF, Patagonia, ArcT--all well constructed--and all too baggy and long to be of use for skiing/skinning. I'm 5'9" 175 lbs 34" waist. The Stoic Bombshell pant in Medium just arrived and it is a relatively trim-fitting, free-moving quality peice at half the price. Only wish is that it had suspended loops.

Very, VERY NICE!

Well, I got the large, and they are maybe just a tad to generous in the waist. (I'm about a 34-36). But I can deal. Not warm on wicked cold days so layer up your legs. But never had a wet bum after sitting in the snow. I know that they breath VERY well, after working up a lot of heat and sweat, the outer fabric is perfectly dry, but holding my hand on the pants I can feel my hand getting moist. They move with me, never felt a bind or had to pull up a leg to cross a tree. These feel rugged! All I need is a belt!

Does the Job

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Agree with other reviews regarding the sizing, wish I would have went for a medium (6ft 180lbs). Length is noticed too much while moving though, so isn't a very big deal. Item I most like about the pant is the full zip. Can unzip from top or bottom, and the top zip is great for dumping extra heat on ascents. Also allows for easy removal of pant without taking off boots. Breathability proves great as well (especially with the ease of venting) and don't think a drop has gotten through yet.

Biggest complaint of the pants are the two pockets...just above the knee? Were we supposed to put pads in there for if/when we crash? I haven't really used the pockets much due to this issue, and is especially annoying when filling up for gas and need to put your keys somewhere and then OUCH! pokes you on every step.

Other than the pockets would say purchase these, especially at the price.

Good pants at a nice price!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

First of all, in regards to sizing: I'm more or less in the middle of your chart for large (except for the hip area, where I'm medium). I'm 6', 188 lbs and I'd guess you'd say I'm of an athletic build. The pants were quite baggy, even though they should have an ergonomic fit. Backcountry also states that they're quite close fitting, so this should be taken into consideration. If I'd lived in the US, I'd probably return the gear in exchange for medium sizes, but given the costs of shipping and the price of the gear, I decided not to (plus I really wanted to test the gear out). I'd remove the statement that they're a "tight fit". Of course, this depends on a number of factors. I'm Norwegian, so we differ a bit in body sizing (on average). In addition I use my gear for climbing, skiing (Nordic and Telemark) and hiking. Hence, I tend to like a pretty ergonomic fit. In my experience, this facilitates movement way better than loose / baggy fits. As mentioned, I'd exchange the goods if I didn't have to ship them from Norway. And I'm not sure if the medium size would be better.

The pants are perhaps an inch too long in normal shoes (but okay in ski boots). I've got long legs (I use medium / tall from Arc'teryx and large from Norr�na). They're loose, but not uncomofortably so, around the legs, but in the waist they're just ridiculous. I can easily get three fists between my waist line and the material.

With all that said and done, my experiences on use:

Pants:
The material is the same as on the jacket. It works really well. The reinforcement on the legs are well placed and seem rugged enough. Apart from that, I feel the pants are too baggy for me, so it's hard to comment on the fit. However, I'd add loops for suspenders. Belts are a real hindrance for good ventilation and heat transport (stovepipe principle), and I advise against using them when outdoors (except if you're making a design statement by adding a flashy belt).

Good pants

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Good pants.
Uses: Skiing, mountaineering, ski touring in NW Montana.

Tough fabric, full side zips, welded seams,

They don't stretch, at all, but have a lot of built in articulation.

Hike up hill with them unzipped, zip them up to ski.

buy on sale, be stoked.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

i'm 6'3" 195 lbs, 33" waist, 34" inseam...the large in this pant was way too big, so i exchanged for a medium which fit me fantastic. backcountry was really quick with the exchange (thanks!). i wear belt or suspenders to take in about a half inch of extra waist. plenty of length, but not too long (they stop 3 inches from my heel with my ski boots on). there is room throughout the leg for layering, but these aren't super baggy. fabric breathes well and is very waterproof (wet mt. baker snow tested). the pant has side zips, two tiny pockets and snow gaiters...no random crap, just a simple, protective pant. i'm a big fan of the side zips. some meshed thigh zips would be nice for more heat control. i would prefer for the pockets to be horizontal, but they aren't big enough for much anyway...i use my jacket for holding things. great deal if bought on sale. five stars for the balance of quality to price.

Awesome Pants

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The quality on these pants is awesome. The color on the blue and paprika is also super cool. I'm a lady with thick thighs, so ordered these to see if they'd work, but my hips just got in the way and they came up crazy far for the crotch not to be too low. Won't be a problem for dudes that wear their pants and like a little extra crotch room. They were also pretty darn snug in a small (I'm 5'4" 140 lbs). They were so awesome though we are sending them back and getting the boyfriend a pair, just the fit won't work for a lady.

meh - typical first year stoic issues

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Typical Stoic - well built, good value for the construction and quality, light, cut is a little long - I'm 6'2 (33" inseam) and had to pull the larges up to Urkel levels for them to not drag. Also in what seems to be typical stoic fashion, the first iteration of these just aren't dialed. They lack what I think are a couple key features for making them a good all purpose pair of pants but they might do well for touring and/or mountaineering (btw nobody doing these activities wants pants that are this long).

1. No hand pockets. I like a place to keep my keys/change, wallet etc. when wearing my pants to and from the mountain. The two dinky cargo pockets just aren't going to cut it and i never really trust cargo pockets with a vertical zipper

2. No mesh lined vents. Really the only venting is on the full zip, which might seem fine, but i'm guessing is pretty useless if you actually want to ski with them slightly open.

I'll be trading these in for the bibs. Didn't really see the need to spend the extra $ for the bibs but will give them a shot since I've had good experiences with most the stoic gear I own.

why not a bib?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

who doesnt want a bib in the backcountry...who does want full zip legs in the backcountry for massive heat dumpage? and if you do it...make sure it has a "double zipper" so you can select the spot where you want to open the zipper. thank you. i have to resort to klim snowmobile bibs to satisfy this desire.

Responded on

The trewth bib by trew gear also offers those features but is over twice the price of these unfortunately
