Roxy Non Stop Bib

A warm and protective pair of bibs are the key to a great ski day. We love the Non Stop bib because its eco-friendly high-loft insulation keeps kids warm but it’s also unusually breathable, keeping her dry and comfortable in all weather conditions. These also have a good number of features for the (very good) price, including mesh-lined leg vents, Velcro-release front suspenders, and several roomy pockets.

These PrimaLoft Black Eco-insulated ski pants are a true steal. Available in seven colors and in sizes 8 through 16, the Legendary Pant is an HH staple that will hold up to whatever punishment your kid has in store. What’s really great about these is the fit, thanks to articulated knees and a gusseted crotch for ease of movement. And with some colors starting at only $84, maybe you should just go ahead and buy the next two sizes.
