Nomad Bib Pant
Japan, Iceland, Austria, Chile, who knows where you'll find powder this year? Thankfully, the Strafe Outerwear Men's Nomad Pant is ready to chase storms with you, and it won't complain the slightest bit about sleeping in your truck or catching brutal redeye flights to snowy destinations. The Nomad's 3-layer eVent shell provides extremely high levels of waterproofing that still remain breathable while hiking for tasty backcountry lines, and fully taped seams and Vislon zippers make sure you don't feel a drop of water on resort powder days.
To keep you warm, the Nomad's relaxed fit allows plenty of room for layering on frigid days. The Nomad also features generous mesh-lined thigh vents for an abundance of airflow, after all, you don't want to feel like your legs are in a tropical jungle in the middle of winter. Internal gaiters and the stretchy, zip-off bib seal out snow in the white room, while Cordura kick panels protect the cuffs from ski edges when you're laying it over on hardpack or tiptoeing ridgelines in crampons.

If you don't know what eVent is, you should! So many people want Gore-Tex in the backcountry, but Gore-Tex's breathability is sub-par to other membranes like eVent and Polartec Neoshell. Not only is eVent 30k waterproof, but its superly-duperly breathable at .1cfm, that's like 60k breathable. Why is that awesome? You get warm, the bibs breathe, you aren't going to be getting super hot and sweaty like you would in your "breathable" Gore-Tex bibs. Wanna know more?
