The Marmot Discovery Bib Pant is an affordable and warm option. The issue with this bib pant is the fit, which isn’t restricting in some areas, but is too loose in the frontal crotch area, and can result in a lack of ample mobility. In addition, the pockets are a deal-breaker – the pockets have no closures, so snow and water can pile up while you’re gliding down the mountain. Overall, we would only recommend this bib pant for those who want to hang out in the lodge on the mountain, or on a mild day where you are positive it won’t rain or snow.
