Marmot Spire Bib Pant - Women's
MarmotSpire Bib Pant - Women's

Approved for deep days.

Getting pummeled by a snow storm is always a good problem to have, but if you need help with the fallout, consider the Marmot Women's Spire Bib Pants. Offering more protection than you'll at first know what to do with, the Spires are serious bibs that combine fully taped seams with a three-layer Gore Tex shell that is pretty much impervious to snow, sleet, and wind. The full-length, water-resistant side zips make ventilation during long backcountry tours easy, and they even incorporate internal gaiters just in case some fluffy pow tries and sneak through the bottom when you're riding through your favorite powder stash or taking a turn breaking trail somewhere deep in the backcountry.

  • Storm day-ready bibs designed for committed powderhounds
  • Breathable Gore-Tex shell walls out snow, sleet, and wind
  • Fully taped seams prevent moisture from seeping through pants
  • Full-length side zips let body heat escape on the skintrack
  • Cordura scuff guard protects fabric from sharp ski edges
  • Internal gaiters form a snowtight-seal around boots
  • Hand pockets hold glove liners, snacks, and lip balm

Unanswered Question

Can you go to the bathroom without removing the shoulder straps? In other words can you drop the back without taking off your jacket? Top priority in the backcountry and cold!

Perfect

These pants are exactly what I wanted. The fit is excellent. I hated those big formless bib pants that most companies make for women. These are true to size and have an attractive fit and are super functional. If it's cold out you do need to layer up as this is just a gortex shell. I wear a pair of leggings underneath. But that's also a benefit of being able to use them on warmer days or in variable temperatures.

Highly functional

These pants seemed pretty great - the fit of the bib on my torso was just right and the length of the small was perfect for me (I'm 5'4"). I found the thigh fit to be a bit tighter than i was looking for; they pants have an awesome slim fit and it was more of personal preference that led me to keep looking for my perfect pair. It should be noted that the Red Dahlia color is deeper / richer than the photo above (not as hot pink in person).

There's "snow" other pants for me...

Big, bulky snow pants say "buh-bye". The Marmot Spire Bibs are incredible. Not only are these a 3 layer Gore-Tex fabric, they also are easy to move in. Most other bibs, I've found to be either too big in the bottoms or too tight in the waist, but these fit just right. They fit a light base layer underneath, and keep out winds and snow. The top of the bib hits about 3-4 inches above my hip bone and allows me to layer both underneath as well as overtop with no bulk. My favorite part about these bibs? The lower back is cinched in with ruching which proves that ladies still have a shape even in a snow bib. Well done Marmot.

Pretty great!

Love the way these fit, I usually wear a size 6, and I am very tall (long legs) so I went with the Medium size to accommodate my height, as well as putting thick base-layers underneath for resort days. Use this touring in the backcountry, as well as in-bounds. Love the dual toned blue color option, has good visibility in white-out conditions in the backcountry.
