Extra coverage for chest-deep days.
The Burton Men's AK 3L Freebird Gore-Tex Bib Pant offers ultimate protection from the deepest powder on the planet with its bib-style design and legendary Gore-Tex 3-layer membrane. The Freebird is fully sealed with Gore-Seam tape to prevent moisture from sneaking through the pant's seams when you're riding in chest-deep snow.
The Freebird is incredibly lightweight for maximum comfort and efficiency when you're earning your turns in the backcountry and riding demanding lines. Gore-Tex stretch panels along the upper chest and back promote freedom of movement needed for skinning, hiking beyond the resort, and snowmobiling into hard-to-reach zones. The pant's AK fit uses engineered articulation to naturally move with your body, allowing enough room underneath to fine tune your level of insulation.
Keeping you dry from soaking perspiration, the pant's 70D Gore Micro Grid backer actively pulls moisture off your skin to better regulate your body temperature. Zippered inseam and outside vents channel cool outside air over your lower body and legs when you're slogging uphill or riding under the warm spring sun. Another well-designed feature is the large chest pocket that's accessible through any AK Jacket's underarm vents. This gives you grab-and-go convenience without slowing you down on fast-paced missions.

I ordered these a couple days before a 2 week trip to Japan kind of on an impulse buy, but oh boy am I glad I picked them up. I wore them the entire time. Super lightweight, super tough going through brush and tree branches, and lots of pockets for your gear. Not once did I get snow in the butt.
Some features I really liked:
-Zipper to make going to the bathroom easy
-pockets pockets pockets
-vents on the inner leg + outer leg
I'll be using these a lot more than I intended for sure. Now I'm asking myself why I didn't go to 3L bibs sooner!
I'm about 5"10, 180lbs, and ordered a Medium. It fits great and I never felt like my movement was being restricted.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size

I'm a big fan of bibs. My trusty black goretex bibs from another brand finally got too worn out to rock, so I upgraded to these for this year. Haven't been able to test them out very thoroughly, but very stoked so far. The material feels super durable, but without insulation I can pick the right baselayer and be good to go year-round. And the pockets seem well thought out (one of my favorite things about bibs is stashing stuff in the chest pockets). These are definitely a bit of an investment, but based on my last pair of goretex pro bibs it is definitely worth it! I had to retire them eventually, but got hundreds of happy, comfy days skiing and snowmobiling out of them.
What is the weight of the small size?
