StretchVent™ Gaiters with Gripper Elastic
Designed for high-exertion, high level athletics in the worst winter conditions, The North Face Free Thinker Bib Pants are TNF’s premiere wintersports bottoms. GORE-TEX Pro fabrics maintain the superior waterproofing of regular GORE-TEX products, but with a dramatic increase in breathability that ski and snowboard backcountry riders will find a blessing. The Free Thinker is built with mountaineering in mind, and the harness-friendly pocket placements and secure zip cargo pockets (handy if you sometimes carry your beacon there) are proof. These pants do the thinking so you can concentrate on the stuff that matters.
