Find yourself some waist-deep powder stashes this winter with the eager help of Backcountry's Cottonwoods Gore-Tex Bib Pants. Built with everything you need to stay dry in the wettest of snow, you can head into the sidecountry, the backcountry, or full on blizzard--nothing is off limits. Using a 3-layer Gore-Tex membrane and fully sealed seams, these burly hardshell pants defend against all manners of moisture, even from the inside, giving you breathable performance in case you work up a sweat. Built-in gaiters keep the powder from sneaking in the cuffs, and watertight zippers protect everything else. They're even designed to integrate seamlessly with the Cottonwoods Jacket powder skirt, so you'll be tight as a drum in the stormiest of weather. In addition to powerful wet weather protection, the Cottonwoods Bib Pants keep performance at the forefront of their mind. Stretch panels at the sides join forces with articulated knee patterning to give you all the mobility needed for tight trees, steep skinners, and gnarly kick turns. Zippered thigh vents help you cool off during tricky bootpacks, and reinforced kick patches keep your your pants from getting destroyed by your crampons on their first trip out. Backcountry equipped them with removable bibs, a stretch mesh stash at the chest for your goggles or gloves, and an interior loop for attaching your beacon.
