Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these gaiters almost 7 years ago and they are still as good as new. The fabric on these things is as durable as they come. I have used them in almost every condition from rain, to snow, to simply keeping brush from cutting into me. After all the years, they are still as waterproof and breathable as ever. I'm guessing I will one day have to replace them and when I do, I'm grabbing another pair without question. You can't go wrong with these gaitors. Like a few other reviewers on this page, I must let you know that I belong to Mountaintechs and I get to test some Gore-tex and Windstopper products. However, I bought these gaitors long before I joined Mountaintechs.

Everything I was looking for
5 5

These bibs are expensive, however personally, they are worth every cent. When I first got these, I planned on using them for mainly snowboarding and winter hiking. For both of those activities, they have performed incredibly. They are perfectly waterproof and extremely warm when combined with layers. Above all though for me is the durability. I've had these bibs for three years now and they look brand new. I've put these things through some miles and hits and they barely show it. So, for me, it's worth the money to have multi use waterproof pants that last for years.

Now, the downside. For me, I haven't liked the suspenders on these particular bibs very much. It's not a deal breaker, but I didn't find them that comfortable. So, most of the time, I simply use the built in belt and fold the suspenders down. Besides that, I couldn't love or use these more!
