Flylow Bib Finder

Start Here to Find The Pair Of Bib Ski Pants That Perfectly Matches Your Skiing and Personal Style

Here at Flylow, we’ve become something of an authority on bibs. We started making bibs because that’s what we wanted to wear skiing. On a storm day, bib ski pants offer more protection and a touch more warmth. On a skintrack, a bib atop a base layer is all you really need to wear most days. (Plus, they have extra pockets.) If you’re still deciding on bibs versus pants, the below will help you weigh your options. And if you can’t figure out which bib is right for you, we’ve got some pointers there, too.

Our men’s Baker Bib and women’s Foxy Bibs—Flylow’s original bibs, first designed years ago and updated since—are still crowd favorites. We’ve expanded our men’s and women’s bib collection since then to offer a wide variety of bibs to suit every type of skier and rider. You could say we’re known for our bibs.

You really can’t go wrong with any of Flylow’s bibs—they’re all waterproof, breathable, durable, and ready for a big day in the mountains. But which bib is right for you? Or should you stick to a regular ski pant? We’ve come up with a short quiz to help you determine the perfect bib for your style and needs.

  3. I mostly ride lifts. I mean, I'm always down for a bootpack for better turns, but I don't often spend a full day touring in the backcountry.

Flylow Smythe Bib

Our top-of-the-line backcountry-focused bib ski pant, the Smythe Bib is made with "The Perm," a proprietary waterproof, air-permeable fabric with mechanical stretch. Designed to be light, temperature regulating, and super comfortable during high-physical output, this is the bib you want if you're a multi-lap kind of backcountry skier. You'll love how this bib moves with you when touring and releases moisture before you sweat, while still offering the weather and storm protection you expect from a bib.

Because we value versatility, the Smythe Bib works great at the resort, too, but our designers and testers developed this bib ski pant with 80 to 90 percent backcountry usage in mind.

Flylow Tannen Bib

New for 2020, the Tannen Bib is a lower-profile bib, meaning that while it's higher than a traditional pant it does not come up as high across your torso as our other bibs. Like the Smythe, the Tannen Bib offers a fabric with mechanical stretch, as well as a thick 20k/20k waterproof membrane. With that added warmth, you may need to wear less layers compared to the Smythe. 

Motivated backcountry skiers should consider the Tannen for its heavy-duty durability and its low-profile top. We like to think of this as the 60/40 backcountry-resort bib with a more pant-like fit.

Flylow Siren Bib

Made with ultralight, air-permeable eVent Expedition DV fabric, we think you'd be hard pressed to find a better bib for backcountry touring, whether you're logging heaps of vert or just spinning one lap. Thanks to the air-permeable fabric, it will keep you drier on the way uphill by releasing moisture before you sweat. The result? You won't sweat out your baselayer and turn into a popsicle on the summit. Although the Siren may feel lighter and less warm than some of our other bibs, it'll actually keep you warmer and drier during high-output activities. 

Yes, it's waterproof and totally capable for storm skiing, but we definitely designed this bib with touring efficiency in mind, and less so for riding lifts at the resort.

Flylow Foxy Bib

The Foxy Bib has been a crowd favorite for years. This bib fits just right and ticks all the boxes for the passionate skier. In the backcountry, the Foxy Bib offers durability and stormproofing to keep you warm and dry on the uphill and down. On the skintrack, a breathable fabric and plenty of side venting lets you control your temperature. It also offers a stretch fabric for ease of movement when touring, while reinforcements in key areas offer added durability for those days you ski inbounds.

If you spend a decent number of days touring each winter, but you wouldn't necessarily consider yourself a fast-and-light backcountry skier, then the Foxy is probably the bib you're looking for.

Versatile Bib Ski Pants That Can Be Used In and Out Of Bounds

Flylow Baker Bib

This is the bib that started it all for Flylow. It represents the core of what we're trying to achieve here: skier-designed gear that aims for functionally, durability, versatility, and style. We originally designed this bib because we wanted the do-it-all bib that would be comfortable and usable in any situation in damn-near any mountain range in the world. All these years later, that statement holds true, and thousands of Flylow customers would probably agree—you can't really go wrong here. 

The Baker Bib is the perfect bib if you like to charge hard at the resort, set the booter up hike-to zones, dip out of the backcountry gate for a lift-assisted lap, and make time for a handful of days on the skintrack. The beauty of the Baker is its versatility. It's equally at home in a tram as it is on a skintrack. It’s not our lightest weight bib but it'll get the job done on the uphill, whether you’re on a hut trip or a dawn patrol lap before work. If you like to ski everywhere at a fairly high level and you want pants that withstand a lot of abuse over the course of a diverse season of skiing, then the Flylow Baker Bib is for you.

Tannen Bib

We outlined the Tannen Bib as a solid option for backcountry, and it's the same features we mentioned above that make it a versatile inbounds/out-of-bounds option. The shorter, half-bib cut offers an easier fit through the torso that some might find more comfortable than a traditional bib. The stretch fabric moves with you whether you're riding lifts or setting a skinner.

  • Snowman Insulated Bibs - If you run cold or live in a place that tends to be extra chilly, this insulated bib is a good option for inbounds skiing with the occasional day of touring.

Women's Bibs For In & Out-of-Bounds


Foxy Bib

There's a reason the Foxy Bib has been one of the most revered bibs in the liftline for years now. The fit is dialed for the modern skier who likes to do it all. The stretchy fabric allows us to make these with a more tailored cut where you need it most, while still offering the mobility you need to to ride lifts or climb mountains. The Foxy is fully waterproof and breathable and perfectly suited for a skintrack or bootpack where your core temperature will heat up.

The goal with this bib is definitely to strike that perfect balance of performance, durability, and style for the skier who does a little bit of everything.

Moxie Bib

The Moxie Bib is made with a breathable, hardshell fabric that's reinforced in key areas like the knees and seat. This provides the Moxie the utmost in weather protection and durability, making it more of a resort-oriented bib with a backcountry habit for those days you want to venture out the gates. The main difference between the Moxie and the Foxy is the cut: Whereas the Foxy has a straight-leg, more slim-fitting cut, the Moxie offers a subtly relaxed fit, giving you room for a touch more flexibility in your layering system (in case, you know, you decide to wear two pairs of long underwear).

Think of the Foxy as a 40/60 inbounds to out-of-bounds ratio and the Moxie like a 60/40 inbounds to backcountry. It's a fantastic hardshell bib ski pant for women who get after it all over the mountain.

Firebird Bib

The Firebird Bib might be the sleeper of our entire collection. We designed it with the resort in mind with a 10k/10k waterproof-breathable membrane, which gives you plenty of breathability for traversing to side bowls and enough waterproofing for pretty much any weather you'll encounter. We've tested this bib in all conditions and it holds up to the test. It's also built light, in case you do decide to go for a backcountry tour. The Firebird is a good all-around bib at a fantastic price point.

With the Firebird Bib you're getting a resort-focused bib that punches above its price class. It's a great option if you spend weekends at the home resort and your backcountry days typically start from a boundary gate.

Snowman Insulated Bib

The name alone should make this bib pretty clear. The Snowman has 40 grams of insulation layered in its construction. This is the bib for bitter cold climates or the person who has a better day when they are sure they'll stay warm. Let's be real, we've all been on some miserable fixed-grip lift rides mid winter before. Because of the insulation, it makes a lot more sense as a resort piece, but if you've ever been to the Canadian Rockies or Colorado in early January, an insulated bib like the Snowman could definitely make a touring day or two a year more tolerable. It has vents if you need them.

Know that we've put a ton of thought into ensuring they feel trim, athletic, and ready for out-all-day skiing. The world does not need another doughy insulated bib. The world does need, a quality, durable, stylish insulated bib so we made it. And we're confident it will make certain ski days way more tolerable.

Moxie Bib

A hardshell bib with reinforced knees and seat, the Moxie Bib offers all the durability and weather protection you need when spinning hotlaps at the local resort or having a beer on the lodge patio. It also has a more relaxed fit than our other bibs allowing for a bit of extra space different layering programs. Want to throw on an extra pair of long johns on a cold day? No problem, these bibs will still fit and ski fantastically.

While we feel these bibs work great at the resort, they have plenty of technology for those with backcountry aspirations. A top of the line 20K/20K waterproof-breathable membrane will keep you comfortable and dry at the resort and out the gate.

 Sphynx Bib

The Sphynx Bib is our women's insulated bib ski pant that's quietly becoming a favorite of Flylow customers. Why? Because getting cold ruins ski days and nothing helps keep your legs and core toasty like a quality pair of insulated bibs. Though you could go for a hike in these, the Sphynx Bib is much more adept when you're riding lifts. They're especially clutch when you need to hitch a slow double chair to the goods on a wicked cold day. We literally designed them to prevent double-chair butt freeze (clinical term...look it up), thanks to it's reinforced seat

Second only to warmth, style is important with insulated bibs. We made sure these bibs look and ski like a high-quality shell pant, no need to worry about the marshmallow effect. If you live in a cold climate or just generally run cold, this is your new favorite bib.
