Super small legs

I am 6' and a 33" waist and I could barely fit my legs into these bibs. If you have legs that are at all athletic, they will not fit into these bibs! Otherwise they seem like very nice bibs.

Beautiful well built bibs. Not for snowboarders..

I loved these bibs. Great fit. Top notch quality. Not too baggy. Look great. Full length leg zippers, which are getting hard to find. Then I tried to wear them with snowboard boots. The legs will not fit over board boots. Sadly returned them...

I would NOT recommend this product

Zipper snags making it nearly impossible to adjust zippers to vent while on the move. The zipper configuration is also poor for ski touring as you have to zip all the way from the top or bottom when you want to vent. There is also way too much fabric around the waist area. The legs fit nicely but not the Bib portion

Perfect for the Wasatch and beyond

I picked up my pair of Archangel bibs around December of 2020, and since then used them for some ice climbing / mountaineering, but primarily for alpine touring and skiing in the Wasatch range. I try to use a modular approach towards my outdoor gear and these bibs are my outer shell for wet, physically demanding winter sports.Thus far they have been one of my favorite and most versatile pieces of my winter kit. They are durable and well fitting, keeping me dry and not hampering movement while getting rubbed against the wall during ice climbing or mix climbing / scrambling while boot packing on a back country tour. Lightweight with plenty of vents, they have been ideal for touring, which has been my primary use for them over the past season. It would be nice to have one more pocket on the front, but all-in-all i would highly recommend these bibs for anyone touring, mountaineering, or engaged in any other winter activity where you're working hard in harsh conditions. Paired with the correct base layer, i use these bibs for all of my outdoor activities from first to last snow of the season.

Had to return, so sad.

I had my eye on these for a long time and finally purchased them. A full zip bib is a must for me and my old North Face bibs finally died. My excitement was quickly diminished though when I tried them on only to find that I couldn't bend my legs past 90 degrees without the crotch putting a vise move on my man parts! I am 5'8" and weight 145lbs. I have chicken legs and wear SMALL in all of my other OR pants. Also, the back of the bib has a ton of extra fabric that would just bunch up behind a pack and no way to adjust for that. I'm like, "what is the purpose of this, so I can put a giant puffy inside of my bibs?" I don't get it. It's a very weird design. Just put a full length zip on the Hemispheres bib or change the cut of the Archangel! Not to worry, I will always love OR and will continue to be a walking billboard for your products. Just not those because bibs shouldn't hurt. :(

Awful fit

These fit absolutely terrible, the thighs are so tight I can barely get them on the ankles are flared worse than pants from the 70s! For reference I'm 175cm and weight 70kg and an athletic build. Like most outdoor companies, these 'alpine climbing' salopettes have been built for skiers not climbers. If they are for climbing, they need to be trim round the ankle, they don't need to fit ski boots. They should be trim so not to snag on crampons. If your backcountry skiing, buy ski pants. If your approaching on ski's to climb, lift the pants up and change into boots. If you want to climb in ski boots, buy ski pants. Make two sets of salopettes, one for climbing, one for skiing. Look at the Jottnar Vanir (sadly no longer mad) for the best ones ever made.

Best bibs yet!

To start off, these are my 3rd pair of bibs. I owned the OR hemispheres and currently the MH boundary ridge bibs. I sold my hemipheres after i wore these and i have 20 days in the Archangel. The Archangel bib is bomber! Im 5'11" 160lbs with a 31in waist and I got a small. I know, sounds crazy that I wear a small I'm limted for really stretching my legs but thats it. I tour often and i wouldnt wear anything else in the winter! From 32 to 0 degrees, these continue to impress with the breathability and weatherproofness! I can wear a base layer plus a midweight midlayer underneath while remaining comfortable. The wind doesn't stand a chance against these bad chickens! I've put that to the test with 35mph winds and my legs dont even notice even when the wind chill is in the negatives! They fit over my ski boots just perfect imo. They also work great with mountaineer boots quite well with a button to tighten the ankle which i really like! Read all the reviews but dont knock em until you try em. They are an athletuc fit for sure but I think most runner/climber type people will love these!

These bibs hold up

I work in highland tropical forests where we are working through all kinds of weather (from rainy days in the 40s to sunny skies in the 90s) and these pants keep me comfy. The side zips work well to keep me cool, the gortex pro keeps me dry and it's held up through the constant ware and trying conditions. Only negative is that the straps are not replaceable.

Get them!

Fit is great. Pockets in all the right spots. Waterproof like no other. Thinner material will be great for touring. Liked them so much I got a pair for my dad! 6', 170 lbs. Bought the medium with room for thin base layer and some sweat pants (if needed).
