Every snowboarder should have some bib pants in their closet. If you don’t, the Picture Organic Clothing 2L Haakon bib is a good place to start. This women’s specific bib not only looks and feels great, it’s also produced to sustainable standards.
Picture Organic is known for promoting awareness around how our actions affect climate change, and are constantly encouraging consumers and other manufacturers to take a more sustainable approach to the clothing industry. With the textile industry being responsible for approximately 8% of worldwide carbon emissions, we really hope other brands will follow their lead.
“This women’s specific bib not only looks and feels great, it’s also produced to sustainable standards”
Getting off the beaten path is always a treat for the eyes, especially when you do so knowing that what you’re wearing isn’t produced at the expense of the environment you’re enjoying. The hard shell of the Haakon bib is made out of bio-sourced polyester, meaning Picture has used sugarcane by-products unsuitable for human consumption to produce it. By choosing this as the fabric, the brand is helping to wipe out fossil fuels from the manufacturing process.
The bio-sourced shell isn’t just delivering in terms of sustainability, its 20K waterproof and breathability rating also makes it a durable option for you to tackle more than one season in. These pants keep snow and water from getting in, while also making sure sweat can evaporate out into the environment. If venturing out on a backcountry mission is on your agenda, the Picture Haakon pants are an excellent choice on the outerwear front.
If you’re worried about getting cold, a 40g insulation has been added to the Picture Haakon bibs. And, if things start to get too toasty you can always open the up the vents inside the thighs.
Adjustable straps also make it easier for you to adjust the bib to fit your size. As a final cherry on top, the snow gaiters make it harder for any snow to get in – leaving you dry and warm as a result.
