From the North Shore to the seashore, Guide Gear® Elements XT Bibs with premium Guide Dry® waterproof/breathable technology keep you comfortable in rough conditions. Whether fishing on open water, handling chores out in the rain, or trekking through backcountry, these Bibs are meant to keep you comfortable and prepared…with a design to withstand inclement weather and demanding environments while keeping all your essentials handy.
When the weather gets rough, ordinary bibs just won't cut it. That's when it pays to be equipped with our Extreme XT Bibs. We built 'em tough, with 320-denier nylon and 600-denier nylon reinforced panels at the seat, knees and cuffs for added durability at critical wear points. High-quality, water-resistant YKK® zippers are included throughout, including a full, chest-to-waist front zipper with double storm flap, rain garage and hook-and-loop closure. T-back design features extra-wide, heavy-duty elastic straps for a snug, confident fit, plus oversized 3" quick-release buckles that are easy to handle and operate, even while wearing gloves.
Guide Dry® waterproof/breathable technology is our top level of waterproof protection, and it’s a key ingredient in our Elements XT outerwear. How does it work? It’s simple. Water molecules are larger than vapor molecules. Guide Dry® features a special membrane with tiny pores that prevent larger water molecules from penetrating the exterior. Meanwhile, smaller vapor molecules are able to pass through, transferring body heat and sweat from the inside out. The result is 100% waterproof protection, without the stuffy feel of traditional waterproof material. It’s all about keeping you in your comfort zone longer, so you can take your adventure to the next level without worrying about the weather.
Want to carry your gloves? Keep your pliers for when you hook the big one? Store your phone so you can send your buddy a picture of that new trophy? These Bibs have you covered. Two oversized bellows pockets provide deep-well storage. Each features hook-and-loop flap closure and drain holes. Plus, each has a key hook and 1 has a pliers pocket. On the front of the Bibs is an easy-access zippered chest pocket with oversized zipper pull that's perfect for keeping essentials handy. And tucked inside the Bibs, you'll find both a zippered pocket and a hook-and-loop flap pocket for securing your keys, phone and other critical items.
When you're battling the elements, little things can make a big difference. So we gave special attention to the details when designing these Bibs. Ankle-to-thigh zippers allow for easy on/off over boots. A gusseted crotch and articulated knees allow for easy freedom of movement. And an elastic waist band helps provide a great fit. We even made sure the back was extra-high and included a locker loop for hanging up your wet bibs to dry after a rainy day.
