Spyder's new 3-in-1 ski pants feature a separate vest that can be easily zipped on and off from the waistband. This makes them extremely versatile and easy to adapt to changing weather conditions and women's need for warmth.

Winner of the ISPO Award 2023: The Women's On Piste Bib from Spyder.

The colder it is outside, the more warming layers are needed when skiing because you are not constantly moving. This is especially true for women, who tend to get cold faster than men. It gets even more challenging when the sun comes out and your outfit suddenly becomes way too warm. What can you do? A Spyder development team led by women has come up with the perfect solution: the On Piste Bib.

3-in-1: Pants With Vest or Everything Separately

The Women's On Piste Bib is an extremely versatile 3-in-1 ski pant. With a perfect blend of style, comfort, and performance, it features a zippered, insulating stretch vest that attaches to the waistband with the pants. It can be worn with or without the pants to meet different comfort and warmth needs. Of course, the vest and pants can also be worn separately, giving each garment new uses and greater versatility.

Clean Function That Works Every Day

The removable, insulated, and close-fitting vest is made from a breathable, woven stretch fabric. This feature adds lightweight warmth while maintaining a city-ready look for off-piste use.

Spyder's fabric selection is based on high tech, high performance materials with a smaller environmental footprint. The main fabric is Exo Shield 30K, a 4-way stretch recycled nylon with a 30K/30K laminate and PFC-free DWR. The insulation is PrimaLoft Silver ECO (80g).

Pants and vest can be connected with a zipper.

What the Jury Said:

"These types of ski pants have been around for children for a long time, and I've always wondered why not for adults? If the pants and vest are connected, everything stays nice and warm and dry. The fact that the vest can be zipped off and worn separately expands its use enormously."
