Designed in collaboration with CAPOW Guiding of Revelstoke, British Columbia

If you like long uphill walks in the mountains, you pump your fists to the band Trooper, and you eat gummy candies before lunch, then lead guide Marty Schaffer and his Caposse want to go on a blind date with you. They’ll be easy to spot: look for the folks with the shit-eating grins, wearing the Capow Bibs. 

Tuned and articulated for gliding up the skin track but fully bibbed and burly for tackling big lines, the Capow Bibs are a collaboration effort with Capow Guiding, designed to their needs and specifications. They have an integrated beacon pocket, thoughtful zippered pockets, and big drop-in cargo storage, not to mention the kind of performance and durability you need to guide in comfort through all kinds of conditions. We made them available to our regular customers because we thought you all might want the same thing.

a pleasure to have in class

So far these bibs have been just what I was looking for. I'm a 70/30 resort to BC kind of person but I was looking for more streamlined fit just out of personal preference. At 5'10" 155lbs I went with the medium and they rock the perfect balance of slimmer fitting while not skinny. Great movement, never feel like it's too baggy or restricting anywhere. The ventilation is quick and easy, allowing fast adjustment to the changing weather.

Some notes on the pockets. Love the beacon pocket, super convenient. The side pockets are secure and plenty deep for phone wallet keys any other slimmer things. I'm not a huge fan of having things in thigh pockets in general so I don't really use those but they're definitely spacious. The small diagonal chest pocket really is the party pocket. I've found it's great for easy access to smaller items like earbuds or a snack, but is still large enough for a beer!

Overall incredibly satisfied, hoping these bibs last me for years to come.

Best bibs I've ever owned

I purchased these bibs at the start of the season and have since put easily 100 days on them. I absolutely love them. Here are my thoughts on them.

What I love:
- The fit and look - I'm a tall guy (6'3, 180lbs, wearing a Large) but with big legs. These fit my legs perfectly without being exsessivly baggy elsewhere, but still maintaining that steezy freeride fit and style.
- The Weight/Breath-ability - This was the major selling point for me. I wanted a pair of bibs that wouldn't sweat me to death. These don't. Long days are no long a damp, unpleasant experience.
- The Pockets - One of my favorite things about these bibs are the two, massive thigh pockets. As an outdoor professional, having big pockets to stash everything in, is a huge plus (field book, gloves, ski straps, coffee mug ect.) The beacon pocket is also amazing.

What I don't love:
- The instep protectors - These are my one issue with the CAPOW bib and what kept it from a perfect score. The odd dotted/textured instep protector gets snagged on ski edges and I've worn mine off in several spots and now those areas are vulnerable to being cut. Also the protection area could wrap around the back of the leg a little more. I think a smoother more durable fabric would be ideal in this area.

All in all, these bibs are a staple in my outerwear kit. I don't ski without them now. Aside from the minor gripe with the instep protectors, these bibs are perfect. Could not recommend more highly.

Couldn't speak highly enough of this bib. Just finished a long weekend doing 2 days at the resort and 2 days deep in the backcountry and they were perfect. Great flex for touring, nice material, warm enough to wear a baselayer on mild days and comfy enough to stack up on the cold ones. I'm 6'0" 190lbs and the L fits like a glove. Lastly, as simple as it sounds, they clearly put a ton of thought into how the bib would be used, even down to all the various pocket placements. From resort to touring, these were a solid win for me.

Great bibs!

I tried a pair of these bibs last season but returned them because the fit restricted my movement too much to justify keeping them even though I loved the features. After learning that TREW changed a few things with the fit of the Capow bibs this season I decided to give them another try, and I’m really happy with them. I “tested” them straight away during a backcountry skiing hut trip for three days followed by a resort skiing day. I think the best thing I can say about them is that once they were on I never really though about them. During my touring days I wore a thin base layer underneath and sometimes used the vents as needed. Never was I too hot or too cold in conditions ranging from calm in the single digits to the low teens to twenties in both full sun and calm to light snow with variable winds up to 15-20mph. I love the beacon pocket, because I’ve always had to fuss with my beacon holster. The thigh pockets were great. And the bib straps never moved from where I initially set them (something I can’t say for other bibs I’ve worn). I wore a slightly thicker base layer for my resort skiing with was cold and windy at times, and the bibs were just as great that day keeping me warm. I’m 6’2” and @170lbs but am tough to fit having a small waist with a larger than average seat and upper thighs. The medium size fits me great with plenty of room to layer without being overly baggy which would annoy me particularly backcountry touring. I think they have a great product on their hands! Highly recommended.

Great thought out bib. Material seems to work very well and is bomber. Bibs are not as bro'ish as the trewths, but seems to be more efficient in the skin track. These bibs function extremely well as purposed for skinning. Front chest unzips for breathability. Sweat zips on both the inside and outside of the legs. You can have your cell phone and chapstick in your pockets without it bunching up or pinching during skinning too.
