Rocking the Volcom Overthrow bibs at Breckenridge. I am 5'8" and 130 pounds wearing a medium, for reference.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
I have honestly put these pants through the wringer. Over 100 days in these bibs and there are only 2 issues I have are:
1. The 15,000mm waterproof rating worked well for about half the season, but towards the end on deep or especially wet days, I was starting to feel it.
2. The buttons on the bottom of each leg popped off.
Even with those issues... I bought another pair this year. They are SO comfortable, have TONS of pockets, they keep me plenty warm, even with the waterproofing issues I started to have at the end, and the vents between the legs are perfect for hiking or spring days. Not to mention you would be crazy to ski and not wear bibs, at least in my eyes...
How much do they weigh?
How much do they weigh?
Not much, i don't have an exact weight but for the most part they are fairly light and warm. I can get one.

Best Pants, I have ever owned! You can do KUNG FU kicks in these pants with the stretch. I am 6"5 and the XL fit me great.
Comfy even in the pipe
Thermal in the seat enlarged
Thermal lining in the seat
thermal lining on thigh
Bib is great and i like things that are
super warm, but not too warm if you know what i mean. Layer with these on a cold day and you're golden, run some shorts underneath on a warmer day and you're still golden!
these are straight ergo fit just like Volcom jeans plenty of room and the suspenders allow you to tighten up just the way you want it.
Therma Wafflel Lining
Volcom Rain 4-Way Stretch T.D.S Bib
- Gender: Male
Rock solid construction, weather proofing, and features. I feel like these pants can be trusted in the most demanding of environments!
Volcom Rain 4-Way Stretch T.D.S Bib - Me
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Used once in Colorado. I wear 32x32 pants so ordered so ordered a medium size bib. Sizing is perfect. The side zipper ripped out a bit so was a bit disapointed but decided to fix myself.
Waterproof - I crash alot and sit down in the snow quite a bit. In 3 days of boarding my butt didn't get wet at all. I'd give them 5 out of 5.
Sizing - I wear 32 x32 pants and a medium bib was perfect for me.
Breathability - I wear a pair of long johns under the bibs and stayed a perfect temperature all day and night skiing as well.
I had two friends with me that skied all day and as soon as the sun went down they froze the next three hours. I didn't notice the temperature drop and am usually the one freezing.
I give these bibs 5 out of 5 on all counts except their darn expensive and the zipper ripped.
I also purchased the Marmot Flight pants bib but sent them back before using because of the strange fit.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have used these about half a dozen time this season and have yet to find something about these pants that I don't like.
Pockets are plentiful and well placed, vents keep you from overheating without letting in a massive rush of air when bombing a hill and the fit from the waist down is great. The bib part is a bit roomy on me and I wish there was some way to cinch up the top of the bib, but that is more for style, not functionality.
how does an inseam,waist measurement etc...
how does an inseam,waist measurement etc .,have #s like 32-34,does it depend what day they were made on (what I mean is how does a pant inseam measure 30-32,inseam cannot change like waist adjustment!!)
It corresponds to the measurements of you, not the pants. So if you measure a 33, then you go for the 32-34.
The straps also allow you to tighten them up just right. Awesome bib rivals anything else out there for a bib. I'll put if up against The North Face & Arc'teryx bibs. I love them!
Inseam measures crotch to bottom of leg,the measurement cannot change ,it`s impossible,where you wear them(1/2 way down your ass or up by your chest can change where the hem sits) but inseam never changes!!!
Get them before they sell out. Worth every penny/cent!
As a 6'2" 200lb guy with long legs, I've always had trouble finding the right pair of board pants. Simply put: These are the best pants I've ever owned!
For me, I like them to be long enough that they don't look like a pair of sailors pants that stop at the ankles and not too baggy that I'm walking around looking like the ****ing Michelin Man.
They have just the right amount of give/flex in all the right places for me (waist & knees). They're lightweight enough to not get too hot during the later part of the season, but really good at keeping the warmth in during a snowstorm!
I really like all the extra pockets - you'll always have more than you need. But the one thing that makes these 'win' for me is quite simple. Nobody is THAT good that they never wipe out, be it your fault or someone else. With these pants you can straight say good bye to snow finding it's way to your ass crack!
These pants, like all their previous versions, are gonna ship quick. Get 'em while you can :)
