The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

I just wrapped a long ski season in The North Face Freedom Bibs, so about 40ish days skiing all over Colorado. The Freedom Bibs are North Face's entry level bibs, probably designed for people who get out there 5 to 10 days a year, not 40. That being said they held up great! No issues with any seams, they stayed waterproof all season, zero tears or snags. The durability of these bibs goes way beyond the price point. North Face makes a short, regular and long in each size to get the perfect fit. I am 5'7" and bought the Medium short and my son is 6'2" (my wife is tall) and wears the Medium long, we are both very pleased with the fit. The bibs are 100% wind proof, so correct layering allows you to wear these in any weather.

The most frustrating thing about these bibs is the lack of a two way zipper up front. With only on zipper closure option, one must unzip their jacket or jackets, depending on your layering method, to gain access to the zipper. It's really annoying, especially if you are someone like me who might want to skip the lodge and duck into the trees for a quick potty break.

Ideal for
  • Very durable bibs, built for multiple, long ski seasons.
  • Multiple choices in length size allows for a perfect fit.
  • Skiers and snowboarders will enjoy the fit and style.
Not ideal for
  • No two-way zipper. Jacket must be unzipped to access front zipper, making a quick bathroom break, not so quick.
  • Shoulder straps do not stay put and need constant adjusting.
  • Velcro closures on some pocket.

With reinforced nylon kickpatches, the Men's Freedom Bibs have the durability to match their waterproof, breathable performance and all-conditions style.

Key Features:

  • Standard fit.
  • Waterproof, breathable, seam-sealed DryVent 2L fabric helps keep you dry.
  • Adjustable suspenders.
  • Covered center front entry zip.
  • Adjustable waist tabs.
  • Secure-zip hand pockets.
  • Inner-thigh vents.
  • Articulated knees.
  • Reinforced kickpatches and hem.
  • StretchVent gaiters with gripper elastic.

Mike was really helpful when I needed to buy a snowboard! New to the sport, there is a lot of vocabulary I don't know yet, and although I have certain goals I had no idea which board was best for me. He was really responsive and felt very honest when communicating. I really appreciated it! Honestly wouldn't have found a board as fit for my needs without the consultation

5 /5
I was completely overwhelmed with trying to find the right ski gear. I recently switched from snowboarding to skiing, so I understand the importance of buying the right gear for your skill level. Tommy was so helpful and didn’t make me feel silly for asking questions. Also, he nailed the recommendations right off the bat. He found options at and surprisingly below my budget. I can’t wait to hit the slopes! Thank you, Tommy!

I originally had some boards in mind and after talking to Ben I realized that my selection was no where near what I needed for the way I ride. He hooked me up with some great recommendations and answered all of the many questions I had along the way. I highly recommend asking Ben about anything snowboard related, he’s very knowledgeable and definitely knows his stuff!

One of my main constraints of shopping for a board was that I wanted a cute design. Cody went above and beyond finding me a board that would work for me, laid out multiple options and talked in depth about how each option would fit into my riding style. Cody picked out the ladies choice, which has been a phenomenal board so far, and I'm excited to continue riding it into the season.
