FlyLow Firebird Ski Bibs

If the Baker Bib interested you, but you don’t want to commit to something with that weight or price level, the Firebird is a lighter and a little more practical option than that very overbuilt model. They’re still a 3L Intuitive stretch shell capable of handling any condition you throw yourself into, you just have to be a little more careful with your edges than you would with the Baker bibs.

While they’re not specifically built for touring, they are a reasonable choice for a lightweight uphill kit. The back has a jersey knit to help keep you cool, and the thinner material used for the shell gives you a taste of breathability that you don’t see out of other hard-working pants. In a similar manner, they have a wide side zip to make them a little easier to get on, or give you a looser fit if you don’t need to worry about powder.

Between the tailored knee box for movement, and ample pocket space for all the extra gear and snacks, the Firebird is a safe bet for a daily driver, the resort and occasional trip to the backcountry.

The biggest issue that we see with the Firebirds is the fit. Despite having the entry side zip, some people are going to have trouble fitting into the slim torso. There’s also complaints of the legs being a little too long and baggy, but both of these aspects speak to my body type.
