Do you mean "stylish" bibs? My Monique has several pair of "serviceable" insulated bibs.

The only insulated bibs I could find were by Divas Snow Gear, and their bibs are not easily removable without having to take off your jacket. Could you PM me the brands when you have the opportunity?

Wife has three pair of insulated bibs she's worn in all sorts of weather. Two are no-names like Rawik and Waterproof. The third is by White Sierra. None can be lowered without coat removal. I don't see how a bib pant could ever meet that requirement. You'd need an insulated pant that ends at the waist

My shell bibs have a long zip at the side. I can pull the resulting flap across the back of my body, et voila. Minutes matter on a powder day!

Hah! Just trust me, it all works out. I can manage non-bib pants no problem without taking off my jacket. And my shell bibs. I'm honestly baffled at why this is not an available product.

I had a customer years ago who couldn't fathom why mogul ski pants weren't still being offered. Do some people want them? Sure, just not enough to create a market.

I want a frontside carving oriented ski that is 190cm+, but I fully understand why I can't buy one from a manufacturer... they'd sell four of them. Sometimes that perfect product for 'us' is not viable in the marketplace... and sometimes it is a business opportunity. If you believe in it strongly enough jump into the biz... it's easy to make a small fotune...
