The baffling trend for low-spec, fashion-forward bib pants appears to be on the wane, but if you plan on venturing further afield then they remain a terrific option. Backed by Gore-Tex, the Quiksilver Altrostratus snowboard bib pants will meet the needs of even the most serious freerider.
Like most of their kind, the Quiksilver Altostratus bib pants are of a shell-like design that focuses on repelling wind and rain, rather than keeping you warm. Layer up with some good thermals if you’re planning a peak-winter trip, but otherwise you can probably get by with just these.

The fit is baggy enough to provide full freedom of movement without stepping into ‘90s gangsta territory, and the shoulder straps work together with a waist adjustment system to let you fine-tune exactly how they sit.
All good bib pants make the most of the chest section, and the Altostratus is no exception. There’s a specific pocket for your transceiver, allowing for easy access in a search-and-rescue situation, as well as a smaller zip pocket for other essentials.
