The DC Platoon SPT Bib snow pants are a hard wearing, practical and stylish addition to the SPT collection.
I was lucky enough to be given a pair of the DC Platoon SPT snow pants to review during the Spring Break snowboard test week in Kaunertal. I have never even contemplated wearing bib pants before and was blown away by how much I loved them!
This is a another collaboration between DC Shoes and those magical park makers SPT. As you would expect from this line, the the DC Platoon SPT bib snow pant is tough and durable, with a freestyle orientated styling.
These DC bib pants not only look good, but are very practical for snowboarding in powder as they will keep you dry. They are also extremely comfortable. I found that the bib pants gave me more flexible movement while riding than with normal snow pants.
Another thing I loved about the DC Platoon SPT bib snow pants is the amount of pockets you get. Very useful and in strategically placed positions.
Retailing at £240, the DC Platoon SPT bib snow pants are good value for money and should last years. They can be purchased directly from the DC Shoes website.
Once you start wearing snow bib pants there is no going back!
