Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Best ice climbing/mountaineering bibs I have ever had. They keep me so dry I am still amazed at how the water doesn't get into them. Slim legs which means that if you are looking at using them for AT, they tend to be tight around your boots, not to mention pretty warm as they go up high on the chest. I wish Patagonia would incl another set of pulls on the full legs as it would make it much easier to vent than to pull from the top (it makes it a pain). For the extra weight it would be a great addition.

Keep in mind that the Cobras come with a "B" rated pick which is thinner than the "T" rated picks that the Petzl's come with which are thicker (in addition the shape is slightly different too). So when you hear that Petzl picks are more durable/better/whatever, you are comparing different rated picks. Get the "T" picks for your BD and you'll find them just as good. That being said the "B" rated picks go into ice better and typically don't get as stuck as the "T" picks

This cord failed at one of the loop ends the first time I used it. Also it trashed both probes - one probe was carbon fiber & it got shredded and snapped due to the damage. Save your money and buy a 4mm cord & put knots every half meter! This is what the guides use & b/c this option is more versatile, cheaper & it won't damage your probes.
