Patagonia Women's SnowDrifter Ski/Snowboard Bibs

Great all around bibs, features are awesome!

I typically wear medium in tops and bottoms but went size large in these bibs because of the longer torso. Based on the measurements, I felt the mediums would do the trick but were just too short for comfort. I'm happy to have the large, doesn't feel like too much extra fabric and allows room in the legs to layer puffier baselayers for co... Read Moreld-weather skiing. I'm a big fan of the vents, there is no fabric between the zippers so I'm not afraid of anything getting stuck partway. Also, the vents provide easy access to my baselayers or pockets. When the temps dropped, I found the interior hook on the cuff were great to keep the warmth in and snow from getting stuck in my boots.

Amazing bibs for ski touring and spring skiing

I have taken these ski touring in a wide variety of conditions, and they handle it all! My FAVORITE thing about these is how much coverage they provide when nature calls and there's nowhere to hide. Peeing with skis on has never been easier. Aside from that, I appreciate how far the vents open for hot days. I have never had any issues with be...

So psyched.

These are not "warm", it's true. These are for folks who work really hard during their ski days and love to climb for their turns. These were long for me - I'm 5'4" - but I had them hemmed by a local tailor and they are perfect. I have muscular thighs and butt that look good in these pants...and the pockets! The chest ... Read Morepocket has become my favorite pocket of all time and on all-day tour in the Daks held my emergency granola bar, maple syrup candies and phone. The side pockets were big enough for my map. The zips kept me cool on the uphill and the bibs kept me warm on the downhill. Love 'em.

Best Bibs!

I have searched high and low for ski pants/bibs that fit me well......these are the best! Super flattering fit for an athletic body type and awesome features.... very easy relief system, great pockets, and the stretchy fabric makes them 10/10.

Love the fit

I have been looking for a pair of bibs that are not outrageously priced and would fit me alright. For context I have muscular tights / glutes and most ski pants are really tight if they fit correctly in the above area. Also appreciate the material which is going to be great skitouring. The only thing that i would improve is the elastic in the susp... Read Moreenders, it's a bit too elastic and the hooks are really hard to unhook from the bib.

Awesome Product, Best Customer Service

Quality product overall and super durable. Best part of the purchase process was the customer service though. I got a size extra small as a gift and went in to the Seattle location for an exchangethey didnt have the correct size but spent a solid 30 min calling around to their other locations until they found a small and had it shipped directly to ...

ULTRA LIGHT WEIGHT, not suited for snow/cold unless you're skiing in 65 degree weather or just posing in them. For $350 I would expect more layers and better/thicker fabric. A 50 cent trash bag would be warmer and more durable. I guess I'll squeeze my chubby, quarantine butt into my old snow pants and send these back.

Thank you for your feedback, Brittany! The Snowdrifter Bibs were designed for backcountry with plenty of skinning without overheating. Depending on your usage, we would recommend the Powder Bowl or Untracked Pants. We're always happy to [help]( with returns, exchanges and suggestions so don't hesitate to reach out to us!

Great bibs

I'm really happy with my purchase. They are the perfect length for me! I usually wear a size 4, and the small fits perfectly. I love all the pockets for staying organized.

Absolutely wonderful bibs with smart features

Oh, the odyssey I had to undertake to find bibs that fit well for a tall lady with hips - I have tried on so many from different brands that I lost count with the issue that they fit awkwardly, had too much material in the front, or would just be too short and hit my crotch. Enter these Snowdrifter bibs - perfect fit! Flattering too. I always loved... Read More the length on Patagonia snow pants, and these are no exception. I love the smart features too, like the cross back strap, and the zipper/button combo on the side so I don't have to take my jacket off when going to the restroom - key!!! The material and construction are high quality, the zippers are sweet and waterproofed, and smooth. I love the pockets - handy big chest pocket in front for snacks/your beacon/phone, two side pockets on the thighs - with a smaller pocket inside. The cherry on top is the sweet color - Smokey Violet is a perfect description of it - not dull but a nice subtle lavender. Beautiful bibs! A shining example of why I love Patagonia!

The Bibs are comfortable although

The Bibs are comfortable although the snap closure on the top is a bit difficult to close at that angle. As well it would be nice if they came in different lengths as since I am 5'2" they are pretty baggy in the knees but do not drag.

Stuck inside the bib

Very unhappy with the rear flap system. It is difficult to reach the backside snaps on the rear flap and with waterproof zipper material, zipping and unzipping is also difficult. To make matters worse, the zipper pulls on the flap are too small- hard to grasp, and not very robust-making it even more difficult to zip or unzip. Also, the little elast... Read Moreic bands that you slide the suspender hooks through are not made of very tough material either. One of my hooks already pierced a hole through the middle of the elastic in my struggles to get out of the bib. Give yourself time and take some deep breaths, or take a friend if you need to use the bathroom, otherwise you are stuck in this bib. Lastly, the medium and large sizes run a little long. I did not see an option for choosing a different inseam size, which would have been nice.

Thank you for your feedback, Christina! We're sorry to hear about the troubles you had with the drop-seat and the suspender loops on those bibs. I would recommend checking out our [Pow Slayer Bibs]( as a possible alternative. The lower rise and larger double zipper make trips to the restroom much easier - no bathroom buddy required! If you'd like to initiate a return or exchange on those bibs, you are welcome to do so [here]( Cheers!

Ski clothing

I would happily purchase these ski pants if they came in a true petite. After reading the reviews how the pant was too long for 5 ft plus women, they would be “miles” too long for me. I am pretty short at 5 ft. It’s really difficult to purchase ski clothing for petite women. Manufacturers, please consider us.

Not quite right

These were a bit short in the torso and the hooks to take down the bibb was hard to remove. I had to return.

They are very well fitting

They are very well fitting and stretchy

Soooo long

I really like the material and color of these, but they’re WAY too long. I’m 5’5”, and these are a good 4 inches too long. I called Patagonia to see about alterations, but it isn’t offered on these particular pants. Unfortunately I had to return them.

Hi Jennifer! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the Bibs were too long. Feedback like this is crucial to improving products for future seasons, so we'll pass this along to our design crew!

Not for shorter ladies

I loved the bib, however I am 5’3” and it was 7” too long. I’m disappointed there is no petite version.
