Firefall Bib Pant

Pull on the Mountain Hardwear Firefall Bib Pant in the morning for all day comfort and protection from the weather during the deepest powder days of the season. You can rely on the Thermal.Q insulation and taped seams to keep you warm and dry even if you are riding a super wet storm in the Pacific Northwest or the East Coast. As the days get longer and powder turns to corn, you can still keep rocking the Firefall thanks to the large side zips that can quickly release heat on your next lift ride.

  • Ski or snowboard bibs that keep you dry from bell to bell
  • Thermal.Q synthetic insulation retains warmth in damp weather
  • Fully sealed seams keep keep you high and dry on deep days
  • Side zips allow for ventilation on boot packs and spring days

Weird Fit

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

Many others have mentioned this and I agree. They fit fine on the "bib" part, along with the bottom of the legs. However, the waist and butt area are exceedingly large in terms of proportions to the other parts of the garment.

Not quite sure

    Bought these for my brother for his birthday. He says "Tried these bib pants. I like the stretchy material on the bib, very comfy, but wish the straps had snaps/buttons to take them off. The material seems very durable but wish the boot protector piece was made of a thicker material, not sure how those will hold up over the season."

    Weird fit, not great quality

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium/Regular

    I'm 6'0", 170lbs, 32" waist, 32" inseam. I ordered these in a M/Reg based on other reviews. They fit fine up top but have a wide waist and butt; the legs and length were good. I bought a pair of Marmot Discovery bibs at same time in a Med and they fit much better. Of the two, the Mountain Hardwear definitely felt cheaper in fit and finish and had a strange pocket on the chest with no zippers and the placement of the other pockets was not as good. Had the fit been better I probably would have kept them because I like the color and style better than the Marmot but the fit was a deal breaker and they probably wouldn't have lasted as long based on the quality of the materials. To me, these are an expensive pant for what you get.

    Problems with design and quality.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I am returning this product before even using it mainly because of two key aspects: 1) the side zippers barely stay up and definitely start to release when one does any movement (on a side note it is awkward zipping then up because they are more to the back than in the middle), 2) the straps do not feel like they will stay tight. Overall the product feels cheap.

    Thanks for the review. I'm sorry the one you received didn't feel up to par. Let me know if you'd like to try another.

    Solid

      Used this bib for skiing in the PNW on in waste deep pow days and and a few days where winds were whipping with gusts around 20-30. Bib stays warm, keeps the crud out easily, pocket placement is point, and the bib is light and doesn’t restrict motion.

      Excellent first impression

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

      This review comes with a huge caveat: I've not had these on the mountain yet. Only received them yesterday, but initial impressions are outstanding. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 175 lbs. The Medium seems to fit perfectly. (My waist is 33" and my chest is about 38") Hope that helps you all with sizing. I didn't have to adjust the suspender length out of the box. The leg is plenty long enough, which is sometimes an issue for me ordering mediums at my height.

      Quality and design appear to be top notch. Only negative I could see is the pass through chest pockets that do not have a zip closure, only a single snap on each side, which to me, gives that pocket limited use. Otherwise, everything about these feels good. A great bargain, especially at the sale price.

      The other new negative review definitely concerns me with the flaw in the photo, but I did not have the same negative experience. I speculate the good people at Backcountry will do right by that reviewer for a return or exchange.

      I will update this review once I've had a chance to test them in the intended environment.

      UPDATE: I've now had them on the mountain a few days and they performed well, no complaints. The one thing I will add is I definitely need a belt as they tend to sag a bit even when tightening up the suspenders. Not really a con, just a fitment fact. I like these a lot. They look and feel great.

      Too big, and too little? Feels cheap.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Size Bought: Large

      Proportionally speaking, I'm a pretty average guy. 34" waist, 32" inseam, 44L suit jacket. The length of these work well, as does the waist, but they seem to actually get narrower as they zip above the belt line. This causes the chest pocket to bunch up and fold over, which is compounded by the fact that both shoulder straps won't stay put, and continually loosen. I'm not familiar with many men who have a more narrow chest than they do waist - but if that's the case, then these are for you. Granted, there is some stretch in the material used along the rib cage, which is nice on one hand, but only makes the issue of the cheap upper side zips worse in that they lack a top snap to assist that zipper from unzipping under even a minor perpendicular force. My backcountry fix was a two small holes on each side and a zip tie... less than ideal, but it kept my pants on.

      Additionally, after their first wash I noticed two seam seperations on the interior of the bib. One along the vertical seam below the lower back, and one behind the knee - neither are high-stress locations. These are not tears from hard use, they are simply poor craftsmanship that resulted in a failed stitch.

      The construction quality and poor design overall is not what I'm used to seeing from MH, and I cannot recommend them. The materials, fit and finish all seem to have been done with a budget, and certainly not performance, in mind. Sad!

      Too big, and too little? Feels cheap.

      So sorry to see you had a bad experience. I trust the good people of Backcountry will do right by you with a return or exchange.

      Well made

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

      I really like these bibs. So much so I bought the jacket.
      They are not very insulated. Don't let that scare you away. I can wear my same long underwear from 10-40 degrees in these. The full-length side zip is nice. I went with a Medium short.

      Unanswered Question

      Do these have a full length side zipper? Would like to be able to put them on and remove them with boots on.

      Everything I Expected

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

      I got these bibs for my boyfriend (5'10" and Size Large) and he's a huge fan. He loves the abundance of pockets, the fit is perfect, and it provides the perfect balance of warmth and breathability. The side zippers also provide easy on/off access too. Additionally, the hot orange color makes him easy to spot on the slope. Great buy. Highly recommend.

      Well designed and great range of motion

        For a bib it has pockets in all the right places. The flexibility in the torso while remaining secure is awesome and a great fit compared to other bibs. The insulation and shell is in the legs stops the wind and maintains a great range of motion while keeping you warm and dry (and not too hot). It is also a great value since it has a number of features on bibs costing much more.
