Let me get this out of the way first: These are not softshells. It even says it in the description, there is a "laminate" in the fabric. This is the definition of a hardshell, not a softshell.
I've had these bibs for a full year now and continue to be impressed with the fit and durability. However, I find them to have poor breathability, especially compared to other bibs that I have which can at least be honest and call themselves harshells. The main breathability concern lies in the bib part- my stomach gets sweaty in these. Also, the side zips only go from ankle to knee- worthless for venting. This would be a killer bib in a different fabric/laminate and with full side zips.
