It's no secret that not all outerwear is created equal. Some "waterproof" gear can often turn out to be water-resistant, but the Dakine Men's Stoker 3L Bib Pant is an exception, offering up solid protection for the nastiest tempests your home range can muster. Incorporating a 3-layer Gore Tex construction, the Stoker is totally waterproof and breathable, so you won't overheat while skinning or bootpacking up to your objective. Mesh-lined inner thigh vents add even more breathability to keep your core cool, and reinforced scuff guards prevent the bottom of the pants from getting frayed due to repeated tramplings. Boot gaiters prevent rogue snow from climbing its way in after unfortunate postholes, and a zippered lower fly allows you to use the men's room (or a tree) without having to unbib in the middle of the storm.
