Flylow Baker Bib Pant - Men's
FlylowBaker Bib Pant - Men's

Inches? Better measure in feet.

For those of us lucky enough to live near ranges where a powder day isn't legit unless it's knee-to-waist deep, the FlyLow Men's Baker Bib Pant offers the highest level of protection from the snowiest places on earth. 3-layer Intuitive membrane construction and fully sealed seams equate to total dryness in every imaginable environment, no matter if you're charging through Wasatch blower or making deep turns in thick Sierra snow. The robust nylon face is reinforced along the cuffs with 1000-denier Cordura, ensuring the pant lasts for many seasons to come without prematurely fraying or tearing.

The pant's adjustable bibs keep waist-deep snow from billowing inside with every satisfying trip to the white room. Inner and outer thigh vents improve ventilation when you're skinning in the backcountry or resort lapping on warm spring days. There's a beacon attachment system, which is essential for earning your turns long after the resort becomes tracked out. Other key features include a kangaroo chest pouch for quick-access, as well as a variety of zippered pockets for secure storage of snacks, gadgets, and resort passes.

Decent, decent.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bibs look really good, and have a great pocket setup for the most part. Cons: 1) I skied 7 days in Colorado in these, and they kept me dry. Colorado has really dry snow. I skied 4 days at Whistler and they did not keep me dry. Whistler is very wet and the snow is super deep. Depending on the conditions, these may keep you dry, but may not. THIS IS SUPER LAME. 2) I would not trust the beacon pocket for beacon storage. It seems flimsy and small. I would keep my beacon in a different pocket. It is too small for any large cell phone. The pocket ends up being sort of useless and in the way. 3) The scuff guards on the ankle insides are weak. After 10 or so days in these, the left cuff is sliced all the way through in at least 7 spots. Like, I can stick my pinky finger through the slices. To address this I would need to have a tailor attach leather or something to this area.

Overall I do like these bibs because they seem burly - but the jury is still sort of out. Also, the plastic strap buckles are too large and worry me a little in that I can see them breaking at some point. There are far better systems out there for strap attachment. Frankly, you don't even need buckles there. A hook/loop/cinch arrangement would be simpler and superior, like the Burton AK bib uses. Also, the straps themselves seem lightweight and on the cheaper side. Time will tell. Finally, all of the pocket liners are made of a weird thin plastic/rubber type material. I don't like it because it seems weak, but none of them have failed me yet. They feel like a key could poke through them.

I had no issues with the fit. I'm 6'4" 220, athletic build and wear the XL. If you have any sort of gut these probably will not work for you because they are fitted at the torso.

I might purchase these again only if they were on sail for under $300, which they currently are, and if I were only planning to use them frontside, which defeats some of the purpose of using a bib.

Initial review

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Ive only rode with these pants once so far but off my initial impressions these things are pretty awesome. Im 5'9 185lbs and the medium fits me perfectly. It allows plenty of room to layer and thats one thing i love about shells. Depending where you are you can add or subtract for the different places youre in. A lot of people have mentioned these things wetting through an the one time i rode in them i did not experience that. These are pretty bombproof bibs and i hope to get several good seasons out of them

Awesome Bibs

These bibs performed fantastically in Japan. They definitely keep you dry, and held up well to heavy use. They do get a little warm when hiking, but have well placed vents. The transceiver pocket is perfect, and they look really good. Sizing is a little odd. All in all, a great piece to add to your ski bag for those deep powder days!

Good bibs

Fits True to size. One zipper on the left leg running up to the waist. Overall good bibs. Used for touring.

Flylow is the go to!

I am super stoked on my recent purchase of these bibs. They work really well for inbound or touring and offer great vents and pockets! The knees and ankles are durable and reinforced and seem like they will last forever!

Perfect Bib!

I love the way they fit. They cinch like pants in the waist so you dont feel like everytime you bend over they pull but you still have the snow protection of a bib. All the pockets and details are great. They pair well with my Quantum jacket and the 20k/20k water resistance and breathability is perfect for any day on the slopes. Just with Flylow catered a bit to us snowboarders.

Great Bibs

    I bought this for my father to stay warm while outside working in his garage! He loves them!

    2nd review

      I just put 12 hard days on these in Revelstoke. All different conditions. Heavy snow, light snow, heli, resort, touring, trees, alpine. Everything. My point is this, they will soak through in all conditions. I experienced this, and wrote about it in a previous review, but this trip I gave them a second try. I washed them in DWR. I sprayed them with DWR prior to the trip as well. They still soaked through. Mine are now two years old and have maybe 30 days total. They have not ripped. I like the way they look. The pockets are good. The zippers all still work. But none of that matters because they soak though. Maybe the new ones are built with different material. But I would recommend not buying the baker bib.

      Same exact experience, but I actually sent them back to FLYLOW over the summer for them to treat with DWR. Sprayed em with Camp Dry, the whole 9. they soak through on just a slightly frosty charlift ride. Love the pants in everyway, but cold wet ass is no fun.
      currently searching for my replacements.

      Great Alpine Bibs

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small

      Decided to transition from pants to bibs for my alpine setup and couldn't be happier. The material is very durable but also flexes in the right places to not seem too restrictive. I have not tested on the wettest of days but am yet to have any issues with the waterproofing. I understand the sizing comments below but for me the fit is perfect: tailored up top to be snug around the waist and hips with a baggier fit for the legs to allow movement and fit over your boots.

      Fit can be tough, but these are great

      I ski on the west coast and spend most of my time at Squaw. I haven't worn these yet in very wet conditions, but they have really been excellent during my first two trips this year.

      Pros - I tried a lot of bibs and what won me over on these was the design - there are plenty of pockets, the side ventilation features are awesome and come in handy when hiking to terrain, not to mention they will be very useful come spring. The material seems solid and the cordura reinforcements are a nice addition.

      Cons -
      The sizing is strange for most people I think. I ordered multiple pairs to dial in the best fit, but based on my experience the legs fit baggy and the torso is slim. I'm 5'8", 170 pounds with an athletic build and I landed on a size small. I think people with similar builds will likely be between a size S/M and will decide based on fit preferences.

      Baggy bib

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I got this for a buddy, simply put he loves it. The mix of the 3-layer shell, the prime pocket placement, baggy fit, and slick look makes this bib a keeper. Hes a tall fellow, but he ended up purchasing a M because of his slim waist.

      I believe these are not Goretex.

      Incredible Bib

        My boyfriend got these pants and he doesn't stop raving about them. So many pockets for ample storage, excellent ventilation, and very comfortable. He loves the beacon pocket on the front for when we're out touring however it could probably stand to be a smidge bigger. No issues with waterproofing failure as described below. FlyLow makes gear for skiers, by skiers and they do a damn good job of it - highly recommend these pants.

        For reference, my boyfriend is 5' 9", 174lbs, 33" waist. He got the medium and they fit perfectly.

        Not good enough

          These wet through. I washed in DWR. I sprayed with DWR. They will wet through. Look, there are many great features about this pant. They look good, the pockets are good, the venting is good, they are comfortable. But none of that matters if they let in water. For me, and the environments I’m snowbaording in they are useless garbage. Save your 400 bucs and put it towards a pair of waterproof pants.

          SICK bibs

            Love this brand and these bibs! Best quality.

            I skied well over 60 days last year in these bibs as a Patroler, I have beat the hell out of them and they keep coming back for more. They breath well with lots of venting and keep you dry when you need them to. I love them so much that I just bought a second pair when I found them on sale. My only complaint is that the beacon attachment is not very burly and could tear off easily making me not wanting to rely on it and continue to use a beacon harness.

            Wonky

            • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
            • Fit: Runs large
            • Size Bought: Medium

            I wanted these to work because I would like to have a pair of bibs. But the cut on the Medium was really weird.

            Height - 6'
            Weight - 185lbs
            Waist - 33''
            Inseam - 31.5''
            Burton Pants - Medium
            Prana Pants - 33''
            and pretty much always a medium in any pant.

            The legs were short and the waist was huge. I also almost maxed out the suspenders (tightening) trying to put the waist where it was suppose to be.

            And since I was pretty much maxing the suspenders as small as they could go, the ankles were riding up pretty far and the hips looked huge, I opted to send them back.

            Suspenders:
            So I'm 6'0'' with a 33" waist and a 31.5" inseam. Based on the sizing chart the Medium should have been spot on. But the suspenders made it seem like these were for a 6'4'' guy with stubby legs. So if you're all upper body and no legs, this could been good for you.

            Waist/Hips:
            The zippers were really odd because the cut of the fabric where the zippers were attached created this pointy look. I've already got a large butt but even I had a ton of room and then some.

            Legs:
            These seemed really short and I long have a long inseam. My knees were hitting the middle section of the knee patches when I bent my legs into a tucked position but that exposed a ton of ankle and shin

            Thanks for the feedback Jared! To clarify for other shoppers, the torso area of this bib is definitely designed to have room for layering underneath. Based on your inseam you actually should try out the Large, since those have a 31.5" inseam. However, if you prefer a snug fit around the waist I think you'd be better off with a removable bib pant. Removable bib pants are typically cut to fit snug on your waist so they can be used with or without the bib/suspenders, whereas most dedicated bibs like the Baker will give you more room around the waist/torso (for extra comfort and the ability to layer), since there is no functional reason to have them fit tight at the waist when you have the suspenders to keep them up.

            I love my new baker bibs ! I got them a while ago and really put them to the test. They stood up really well on the pre-season 8 days of bootpacking where some patrol just got their "heavy duty work pants" ripped off by sharp rocks. We walked down sometime shoulder deep snow and I stayed dry the whole time. Plenty of useful pockets, big vents, and a lot lighter than I expected. One thing to be aware of : They fit huge ! I'm 5'7" 150lbs and the small fit huge on me.

            These bibs will go anywhere and do anything. They move really well and the pockets are roomy and well-placed... just like Carhartts, only waterproof and breathable! The small was too large on me, so I ended up returning them.

            Best Snowpants!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            The Baker Bibs are the ideal snow pants for stormy weather shredding, touring, and really any type of skiing. They are lightweight enough for touring without sacrificing performance and warmth. I have used these pants across the PNW and Colorado, and have never had a problem with warmth or waterproofing. The vents help you regulate your temperature perfectly and they come with many pockets and great colors!

            Love these pants!

            I just got these pants and have already skied a few days in them. I love the comfortable fit, extra layering in the knees, and style. They have been super warm, dry, with great venting! I would recommend these bibs to anyone!
