Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Yes these bibs are SUPER pricey. I've skied two very cold days in them so far this season. For starters they are super light, feels like your wearing a light nylon sweat pants. Better layer appropriately. Tons of cool pockets and zippers! My only irritation is the snaps for the drop seat can come undone if you twist funny or bend over. The Zippers are snug and water tight and don't unzip but for this kinda money I'd like a beefier snap. PS I got mine for 1/2 price:) If I paid $600.00 I'd not be as enthused. This should excel in the BC situations where venting and weight matter more. I've got a dozen days on these pants and the snap has recently popped off and is gone so now they have to be sent back to Patty and probably wont have them for the rest of the season. That should NOT happen with a garment with this price tag! PERIOD! I've downgraded to 2 stars.
