Lightweight and Free Moving
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
I’m 5’9” and 150 lb and have size medium.
These bibs feel like wearing nothing, and go perfect with the hemisphere jacket. They are perfect for touring, as hiking in them feels like wearing lightweight flexible hiking pants. Super waterproof but I haven’t used them enough to know how durable they will be. As advertised, they are extremely light and you’ll need to wear an insulated mid-layer on cold days at a resort, but for me it’s worth it for how comfortable they are.
My only complaint is that they are a bit baggy around the hips, and going down a size would make them too tight. But this doesn’t inhibit the performance at all, just an aesthetic thing.
I would highly recommend these for anyone who spends lots of time in the backcountry and doing bootpacks at resorts.
