Mountain Hardwear Men's Freeride Bibs

Last year, my snowboard pants didn’t work out so well—I was sweaty and wet most days. This season, how do I keep my lower half from becoming a hot mess?

Mountain Hardwear doesn’t offer a WR/BR rating with its $300 Freeride pants, but the company’s specially designed two-layer Dry.Q Core fabric is a formidable opponent against rain and perspiration. The adjustable suspenders in the bib and powder cuffs prevent snow from drifting in, while zippered vents in the thigh help you control internal temps. We like the fleecy pocket linings to warm your hands. 30 ounces
