Still made with durably waterproof/breathable and windproof GORE-TEX® Pro fabric, our updated Super Alpine Bibs are lighter weight, lower cut and more dialed for alpine climbing or ski mountaineering in the worst possible conditions.
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.
We promote fair labor practices, safe working conditions and environmental responsibility throughout the Patagonia supply chain.
