These bibs feel a tad thin, but it's just the weight savings of the 3L Gore-tex Proshell fabric. It's still bomber! I normally wear a Medium in all Patagonia pants (6'1" and 165 lb. frame). These in a Medium are long enough to cover my boots, but with only a t-shirt on, they were so tight through the stomach/waist area. I'd have to go with a Large just to have room to layer a few items. Runs small. Size up.

I love the fit/finish of the Powder Bowls. Tons of pockets and better placed than most pants including the Primos.

2 layer Gore-Tex Performance shell feels solid and a nice mesh lining to wick moisture will be great! Side zip vents go from just below the waist to the knee.

These seem more like a softshell, not loud and crinkle sounding like typical Gore-Tex (Primo's are a good example of loud).

They just have the elastic cuff with no sinching or tie down option, which would be a nice addition.
