Jena

Stinger Bib – Tobiko

DESCRIPTION

Made with GORE-TEX® Pro fabric, the tough, efficient and hard-working Stinger Bib provides complete weather

protection and is engineered for deep powder days in the backcountry or on the hill. Forward leaning articulation

in the knees and seat delivers complete freedom of movement, and ¾ length side zips blow off steam during uphill

charges. Large external volume thigh pockets lie flat when empty and integrated suspenders attach to front of bib.

Keprotec instep patches and sturdy Cordura® powder cuffs stand up to buckles, boots, skis.

Deep Expectations

Billowing snow, high winds, unexpected exposure or equipment changes – the advantages of a bib pant are many.

Having protection that extends well above a jacket hem prevents snow or cold drafts from reaching the lower back.

Heavy Duty

N80p-X GORE-TEX® Pro: you can tell it’s durable. The face is textured yet slick, which means larger yarns, very

tightly woven to create a smooth abrasion resistant surface. Nylon is exceptionally durable, slightly noisy and

somewhat rigid. The more raspy the GORE-TEX®, the more hard use it can stand.

Cordura® Cuffs

Buckles, edges, rock and ice are brutal on clothing that is designed to be as lightweight and breathable as possible.

Cordura® is a heavy-duty fabric synonymous with backpacks, military use and motorcycle gear. Uniquely hard-
wearing integrated snow cuffs.

Steadfast

Expedition fit allows room for maximum winter layers that big mountain days can require. Articulation in the knees

and seat allow room for those layers and also provides complete freedom of movement. The ¾-length side zips open

to dump heat rapidly or adjust for ventilation. Pockets have volume pleats to accommodate bulky items needed at

the ready.

Covert Hoody – Malachite

Breathable fleece hoody with a casual design; Ideal for layering or as a stand alone piece.
