Recon Stretch Bib Ski Pant

Whether you're earning your turns or lapping lifts, the Recon Stretch Bib Ski Pant from Black Diamond will keep you comfortable, moving, and dry.

I purchased this not through Backcountry, but through Black Diamond's website. They refused to post my review. Seems they only want to post positive ones. My second day using this bib, the point where the suspenders are stitched in the front completely tore off when I was simply taking it off. It held on by this small plastic/rubber piece that when stitched into, becomes more fragile which causes it to tear easily. BD's customer service/warranty claim also works at a snails pace and I don't even know if I'd get my money back. I would not even want to trade it in for a new one as I've seen their sponsored athlete, John Jackson wearing this and his suspenders were also about to come off via social media. It's a huge concern for me if this ripped off in the backcountry where it was made for.

I had the exact same issue. One strap broke after 4 days of use, the second strap after about a month. I submitted a claim with Black Diamond on December 20th, and I was promised a gift card in exchange for the bibs, but never received it (despite sending 3 follow-up emails to ask where it was). Incredibly frustrating.

Side zippers full-length, or at least long enough to take on/off with boots on feet? Drop seat for nature calls?

Hey Vaune, There is a full side zipper on the right hand side and zipper on the left hand side up to the thigh. The full side zip makes it easy for when nature calls. There is a fly zipper as well for when the other part of nature calls. I hope this helps!
