These bibs are bomb proof! I like the design of how the front zipper goes all the way up and that the straps are Velcro so that they are not sliding loose all the time. I wasn't sure how the butt was going to fit based on the other reviews but the butt area for me was not that poofy and the jacket covers what little extra fabric I have there. The butt area also allows room to maneuver. I'm 5'5" 32" hips and bought the small size. To get them up I unbutton one of the sides. The only thing I would change on them would be to put the side snaps at the top of the zippers a little lower (They are above my lowest rib and a bit behind my torso) so for pees where you want to keep your coat on it's not always easy to re-button, but it could be an operator error issue too and with some more usage it might get easier.

This is my first 100% touring boot so I was nervous that it would not be stiff enough for skiing. My first thoughts putting them on were that I could hike to my favorite summer spots in these! The lugs on the bottom are huge and the bottom is canted like a mountaineering shell so you can actually walk. Skiing in them was not the issue I thought it would be they perform great on the way down! And they are light weight and flexible in walk-mode making the trip back up enjoyable. The cuff was a bit tight around my calf when it came stock but with a couple tools I could adjust the buckle to allow for some more room to buckle by placing the ladder the next hole over. The ski/walk mode is easy to switch back and forth too. For extra long hikes in you can adjust the forward lean 2 degrees to make your lower leg more upright for better walking and back to forward lean for the way down (however I haven't tried this yet but I'm sure it works great). For such a light boot it puts out a solid performance and the build of it doesn't feel flimsy either.
