Winter Weather Protection: Women’s Snow Pants & Bibs
Trek out into the squall in quality-constructed women’s snow pants and bibs.
Snow pants and bibs are winter-weather essentials. Whether you’re carving slopes or enjoying the backcountry scenery, choose outerwear built for thermal warmth and weatherized protection.
Are bibs or snow pants right for your wintry adventure?
- Snow bibs resemble overalls, with suspenders that secure the garment. Bibs extend up over the waist and chest areas for extra cover in the cold. This brand of outerwear offers extra warmth and convenience—suspenders help keep your pants in place—however, they also add bulk and weight.
- Snow pants are a more lightweight option. Though they lack extra coverage, they offer a lighter, more athletic fit for snowboarders and skiers.

Always choose snow pants and bibs that are designed for waterproof protection. Many pants are designated as “waterproof breathable.” This means the garment repels moisture before it can saturate the fabric, yet critical airflow is retained for breathability. It’s a must-have feature for snowboarders and winter athletes who work up a sweat on the slopes.
For durability, look for snow pants and bibs stitched from abrasion-resistant fabric. Select between pants with full sealed or critically sealed seams:
- Outerwear with fully-sealed seams features taping along all seams of the garment. This adds longevity and durability to your garment. It also blocks out all air and water from penetrating the garment.
- Outerwear with critically sealed seams features taping along only high-wear areas. This method of taping preserves breathability and lightweight feel, but does leave the wearer vulnerable to water seepage.
Just because you’re out in the snow doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort. Choose women’s snow pants and bibs lined with rich, soft fabric—like fleece or synthetic insulators.
The latest ski and snow pants for women are cut for a clean, modern design that lets you move easily through powder. Keep in mind, your snow pants or bib should have a relaxed fit, allowing for a full range of movement. Pants that are too large can cause mobility issues—consider snow pants with a secure closure system and elastic waist.
Make the most of your time outdoors with details like internal boot gaiters and elastic cuffs, which offer utility in the cold. Get the strategic air circulation you need with zippered and mesh vents. Hand-warming pockets give you a spot to stash away small items.
Pair your snow pants with a women’s winter jacket—and get ready to relish the season.
