Made with durably waterproof/breathable and windproof GORE-TEX® Pro fabric, our Super Alpine Bibs are lightweight, lower-cut and dialed for alpine climbing or ski mountaineering in the worst possible conditions.
Quarter-inch sticks, snow seat belays and half-cheek bivy ledges – sometimes you just have to make do. When conditions dictate the need for bomber, waterproof/breathable and windproof big-mountain alpine climbing protection, our Super Alpines prove durable, dry and mobile. They feature 3-layer nylon new generation GORE-TEX® Pro fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, a tough nylon outer and a distinct micro-grid interior that optimizes breathability. The well articulated, low-bib design has stretchy, adjustable hook-and-loop suspenders to maximize mobility. Watertight, fully separating side-zips allow easy on/off with boots and also form a drop seat; two zippered pockets sit on the thighs; trim, watertight zippers throughout feature cleanly designed openings without excess weight and bulk. The ski-boot-compatible lower legs have full-cuff scuff guards, internal gaiters, shock-cord adjustments and tie-down loops.
A light, 40-denier 100% nylon GORE-TEX® Pro fabric delivers the same trusted levels of uncompromised, durable waterproofness and a wide range of breathability

"GORE-TEX Pro products have a 3-layer construction that comprises a special high performance GORE-TEX membrane, bonded to a tough outer material and a specially developed robust inner lining. The benefit: no movement between the three layers for exceptional durability and the option of combining the layers with insulation.
The GORE-TEX® membrane has 9 billion pores per square inch, with each pore 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet. These tiny holes are too small for water and wind to pass through from the outside. But these same pores are large enough for moisture vapor to pass through, so your body's perspiration is able to escape and you won’t feel clammy or uncomfortable inside your jacket."
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
