DAKINE Stoker 3L Bib Pant - Men's
DAKINEStoker 3L Bib Pant - Men's

Built to withstand any mission.

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.

Solid bibs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Update: 2-6-18
I was in Jackson this past week and it was in the 40's at the base with wet heavy snow. This bib didn't let a drop of water through. When we got up top, around low 30's/upper 20's w/wind, I didn't get cold and that was with just a thin base layer underneath. We went snowmobiling to some hot springs and I drove the 10 miles back wearing nothing underneath the bib, no issues with the cold.


I have had these bib's for a few weeks now and they seem pretty solid. I've been run into, eaten shit on rails, and mobbed through tree runs while wearing these bibs and so far no tears/rips. I use a simple marmot 3/4 length base layer and have stayed warm even on cold storm days. And on the warm sunny days we've had this season I don't feel like I'm sweating in a garbage bag and that's with the leg vents still zipped and my marmot base layer underneath.
I've used the 686 forest Bailey bib's and the ride Holman bib's and the Dakine's are the best in terms of fit and overall function. My only real complaint on this bib is the piss zipper. It doesn't unzip low enough if you wear the bib higher up and it's a bit of a bitch to get to.

Bibs for powder!!

    These pants are great pow pants, especially with the 3l gore-tex layering making it completely waterproof! Definitely, do not need to be worried about getting soaked with these on. Great fitting and stylish!!

    No more snow down my back

      I bought these bibs to ride powder in the PNW and at home in Colorado. I have had two pow days with them and so far I like them. The shell is a bit thin so if its a cold day go with the thick long Johns. I do like that they are not heavily insulated so they can be used to hike or ride late season. I am 6-2€ and wear 34€x34€ jeans, so I went with the large and they fit just right and are not baggy at all.

      Good pant, bad company

        The pant was purchased as a gift, but in the wrong size. When trying to return back to Dakine for the correct size, the company was unwilling to work with me. The pant is a shell and does require thick layering if not hiking, they also run baggy. I am 5'11" and have the XL's which are way to big.

        Poorly constructed, not durable

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: Medium

        Purchased the stoker bib. Second day of use on the mountain discovered a 2″ by 2″ tear on the front left shin. This was not a manufacturer defect and something that occurred on the mountain. Did not crash or get caught on stairs on anything, best guess is they got snagged by a branch. Dakine was unwilling to warranty them as it wasn’t a manufacturer’s issue. Regardless, if you charge over $400 for a pair of pants, I shouldn’t be duct taping holes after 2 days of use. Very disappointed, have been telling friends to look elsewhere for durable bibs. Keep in mind many 5 star reviews are written by folks who have received free product.
