Your chariot awaits m’lady. Carpe that diem and roll into battle aboard the best women’s ski bib ever made. Storm days are no match for our PNW 3L fabric, keeping you warm and dry in even the wettest weather. But fear not, for sunny days and summer corn harvesting are among the Chariot Bib’s favorite ways to shred, all thanks to the well-placed ventilation and impressive breathability throughout.
Step into these beauties and you’ll quickly discover that the Chariot Bibs were designed for women by women. Pockets in all the right places, a flattering fit for those mountain thighs, and a stealthy drop-seat for doing business in the backcountry. Come what may, you’re ready for anything.

I am 5'9 and weigh 160 lbs. I normally wear a size 6 - 8 or medium/large in most brands. I have an athletic build and strong quads. I ski, snowboard, snowshoe, tour in the backcountry and play hard in the snow (snow angels, snowball fights, sledding - I'm in). I was so excited about these bibs! I love the colors and backdoor zipper. After reading reviews I ordered a large and the legs were waaaay too tight, it was like I was wearing skinny jeans. I tried to move around in them and felt restricted when I bent my legs to 90 degrees.
I went to the Trew store in Portland and tried the XL, but the XL was made for women who need more room in their butt, stomach and chest. They looked ridiculous on me. Luckily, the store employee was super nice and helped me find something. I ended up buying the Men's Capow Bib in S. They fit really well and are built for touring and being active in the snow.
Compared to the women's bib they are way more functional. The women's bib does not have side pockets, but has two cargo pockets on your quads (which for me was already ridiculously tight, so there was no way I would put anything in there), whereas the men's bib has side pockets. The men's bib also has an outer thigh zippers which I think are better for venting and can also be used to go to the bathroom because they have some good stretch.
I love Trew and hope they keep working to create better women's gear.
Ive taken the Chariot Bibs out twice split boarding and am very happy with the purchase. I'm 5'7" and about 145#. I have a thick waist and wide rib cage but skinny thighs, butt and hips. The large fits me pretty well. With my body shape it has been hard to find the right pair of bibs. Ive tried 3 different companies including Trew's last year model to no avail. That being said I appreciate the drop seat a lot, the pockets have good placement, I was worrried about being too hot touring, and I might be in the spring, but unzipping the inner thigh vents a little was enough to not over heat on the soundtrack. So much more comfy than pants. Love 'em!
I recently bought the Women's Chariot Bibs and I'm in love! These bibs make going to the bathroom, especially while touring, a women's dream! They are durable, sleek, and sexy. I have other bibs that zip up starting from the hip to ribs and they always come unzipped, these zip up the middle of the chest and I never have that issue anymore - yahoo! There's lots of ventilation and pockets, and I find them to be super warm during resort days too.
Would 10/10 recommend. They are worth it!
The chariot bibs are my first pair of bibs since I started riding 7 seasons ago. I love the functionality of bibs and Trew did good on these. I didn’t realize they weren’t insulated before purchasing, my own mistake. That feature really hasn’t given me an issue, even on the days it’s below 20 degrees and the blowers are on. They’re perfectly waterproof so with the right base layer you’re golden.
Zippers are sealed well and made tough. The zipper around the waist is great but the zipper is rather stiff. I imagine with time and wear; this will wear in. The extra material at the knees makes for extra room when bending.
2 complaints - which is why I gave 4 stars. There are no waist pockets and the pockets on the legs aren’t completely practical because of tightness with movement. Pant leg is hardly wide enough to go over your snowboard boots. I break a sweat just trying to force it over my boots. Other than those two things; they’re great bibs and very practical. I’m 5’1” - 130 lb and the small fits perfect.
I had my last ski outfit for 10 years because year after year I was unable to find a solid replacement. So happy Trew came out with these bibs in an improved fit and a color I love this year! Pretty sure I’ve found myself another pair of 10 year bibs! They fit incredibly - snug and flattering without impeding my movement at all - and function great. Love the butt flap, nonslip straps, pockets, etc. I’ve had at least a dozen friends comment that they want to copy me. They’re so good! I’m 5’7” 125 lbs and got a size S.
