The Black Diamond Women’s Front Point Bib Pants use Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer shell fabric, which makes them some of the most bombproof britches in Black Diamond’s already burly line of technical outerwear. Gore-Tex Pro fabric provides optimum protection over extended periods of time in harsh elements without compromising breathability. The adjustable stretch bib, rigged with a quick-disconnect front, only adds to the protection of the Front Point. Articulated knees make for ease of walking and skiing, and the Keprotec-reinforced kick patches along the cuffs protect against tearing from finely tuned ski edges and crampons. The internal snow gaiters feature gripper elastic and boot lace hooks for both ski mountaineering and ice climbing missions. Aquaguard full-length side zips prevent moisture from working in along the zippers, yet allow you to ditch excess heat during the climb. The drop seat zipper comes in handy when duty calls, and the expanding thigh cargo pockets are great for carrying extra gear and snacks.
