A ski bib doesn’t have to feel bulky. And bibsters don’t have to tolerate inconvenient pockets or sacrifice breathability just because they have the good sense to remember the value of suspenders on the mountain. The technical engineering and design details that went into the Strafe Nomad Bib shell are here to remind you that bib enthusiasts deserve dignity, too.
The weather can do whatever it wants – Inside the Strafe Nomad Bib you’ll be dry and cozy, thanks to the ultrabreathable three-layer waterproof eVent DV Flex shell fabric, fully sealed seams, YKK water resistant zippers, and water-repellent treated polyester inner layer.
Zippered pockets at the chest and back provide ample storage space. The large hand pockets feature a mesh-lined electronics sleeve. The hems and friction-prone exterior surfaces feature Cordura scuff guards for maximum durability.
In an industry where a lot of classic “core” brands have gone stale and corporate, Strafe is one of the new community-based apparel companies on the block. Founded in 2009 by Aspen-based skiers John and Pete Gaston, Strafe’s overall approach to making ski and snowboard clothes is shaped by the actual, practical needs of real-world winter sports – not the complacent “they’re just buying our logo” mindset of the big boys.
John and Pete fell in love with Highland Bowl in Aspen, where all-day laps require a lift ride and a summit hike up to 12,000 feet to rip down steep, technical powder lines. Everything that Strafe makes is therefore built for maximum waterproofing, breathability, and range of motion, in a distinct style that will make you stand out on the hill.
