Currently on tour. 

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.

Does everything, but feel a little fragile

I've only spent 12 days in these when visiting Japan. They kept the snow and water out like a dream. As a snowboarder they stretched in the right places nice and easily...although top tip, don't wear your beacon in the chest pocket when you decide to hit the park at the end of the day...painful if you fall!

The straps didn't really hold up as other people have said, but once I doubled them up they were fine.

The one issue I had, and it makes me worry about the durability of the bib overall is that in just those 12 days the belt loops have already ripped off the back.

So Perfect

This pant is the best!

Yes one or two issues that a few people picked out but I hear TREW has everything dressed up for 19/20!!!!!

They said that the front pee zippier will be fixed and the shoulder straps!

After that this will be the best pant ever! One to rule them all!!

So pumped and will be ordering another pair!

The sizing is perfect and could not be happier!

I loved the old CAPOW BIB and will definitely be ordering the new revised 19/20 line!!!

Perfect apart from two issues

I love these pants, they're a great upgrade from the Trewth that I had before. You guys fixed all the things that I wasn't so stoked on with the trewth!

That being said, there are a couple new issues I have now...

#1 THE FRONT ZIPPER!!! The zipper runs from the top of the bib all the way down to the crotch, which is great... but it makes getting my pp out to water the trees in the backcountry such a struggle! If only there was a second zipper at the bottom so I could open it up without having to open up my jacket in the cold.

#2 The Shoulder straps: The ones on the Trewth bib were perfect, yall shoulda just stuck with those puppies. Easy adjustment with the velcro, and no slippage. When I load the pants up they stretch as well, which is kinda annoying.

Looks like they've addressed the issues though for the next iteration as commented on another post below. I just wish I could have a pair of the upgraded ones. Live and learn I guess eh?

Super comfy bib with minor strap issues

These are by far the best fitting and comfortable all-day ski pants I've owned. The slight stretch and softness of the fabric is great, and for me at least the fit is spot on. I'm 5'6", 140lbs, slim build, and most other pants/bibs are just way too baggy, even for resort skiing - a small in the Capow bib is perfect. These don't get in the way of movement, but still fit a warm baselayer underneath. These things have kept me warm and dry from wet slushy conditions to -20C, and are not showing any real wear after a dozen or so days on the slopes. Zippers are great, chest pockets are smallish, but work just fine. Overall, super happy with these so far!

As the other reviews point out, the straps slip a lot unless you double them over (or pop a little hair clip below the buckle to hold the strap in place), but this is a pretty minor problem. I double the straps and don't find it too bulky, and it totally stops the slippage.

Solid feedback...update: straps for 2019/2020 are reinforced (like the TREWth Bib) and won't have the slipping issues like the older model.
Great except for the straps.

These bibs are almost perfect. I've used these now for over 30 days the past few months in all conditions, while touring, resort riding and cross country skiing. The beacon pocket is great and the cargo pockets are a perfect balance of having space without being too baggy. The fit is great as long as the shoulder straps are set properly.

The issue is the shoulder straps do not stay tight by default. You have to double them up in order to get them to stay tight, when this happens the strap fastener becomes too bulky and is uncomfortable unless you're wearing a thicker base layer. I have ordered a couple of triglide straps in an attempt to have the straps set up more like the Trewth bib. Hopefully this will work for warmer days when my base layer is thin. I will update if it does. For such a nice piece of gear it's a shame that this important functionality was missed and requires modification.

The only other item that would make this better would be a 2 way zipper in the front so that you wouldn't have to unzip your coat to take care of business.
