Close but not there.

Fit is just off. Have a medium in every mhw pant but the bib was way tight in the hips and waist. Material was great, but the cut was not on point.

Close but not quite

As a 5’10” 140 lb gal, I was excited to see a women's bib offered in a tall size. I purchased these as my work pants for ski patrol. I am on the mountain and wear these bibs 30-40 hours per week. Pros: the inseam of the leg is just about perfect, but may be too short for anyone taller. The side zip is convenient for when nature calls! Cons: the fabric of the bibs is quite delicate. I’m likely using these pants a bit harder than the average skier since they are my work uniform, but in the 3 months I’ve been wearing the bibs, I’ve noticed some wear and tear beyond what I would have generally anticipated. The worst areas of wear are in the pockets and knees. The left pocket has a tether and is where I wear my beacon. The pocket has ripped and started to delaminate. Both pockets have developed small holes— again because I keep equipment in my pockets— but why have pockets if you can’t use them? Disappointed that such an expensive pair of pants probably won’t last me beyond this season. I wish outerwear companies would make durable quality items available in women’s cuts for female snow professionals— there are lots of us! Reinforcing the knees/pockets with cordura would be a nice option. Also, there isn’t much stretch to the bibs and they have a tendency to ride up with movement.

On the small side

Not a great range of motion in these ski pants. Im 5'7", and I order a large. It was still tight in the legs when I squatted. Not ideal for skiing

Great Snowpants

I’m 5’5 and 150lbs and prefer a slightly baggier fit, and the large was absolutely perfect. Plenty of room for layering and great pockets all over!

Super Durable, Great Features

These are very well made and look durable. The long side zipper will allow for bathroom breaks without removing all my top layers which is a must in bibs. I’m 5’6” 120 lbs, pretty narrow/not hippy and these are roomy on me. I have a short torso with longer legs and these could be a hair longer but they are comparable to other bibs I have. With no insulation and roomy legs/waist area, I plan to use these on extra cold days with my Ghost Whisperer down pants underneath. That wasn’t my intention when buying them but after trying on, they’ll work great for this purpose! I have slimmer shell bibs I use in the backcountry.

Very nice quality, strange fit

I’m 5’4 145 lbs athletic build. My thigh are large and muscular; hips 39” and waist 29.5.” These do not fit. I can barely squat as the thighs are skin tight, but the bibs look great when I’m standing up and not moving. They are just not functional and if I ever needed to layer for colder weather it wouldn’t be possible. The length is a little long. I tried a large short in another mountain hardware style of bibs and the legs fit great but the waist, stomach, chest was so large it looked ridiculous. Clearly this brand is not made for my body. I will have to search elsewhere. I’m sad because these seem to be made so well and I like the style.

Perfect fit, great quality!

These bibs are amazing. You may think you would lose style/fit/quality with bibs, but you will be very pleasantly surprised and eager to hit the slopes and apres activities in your new bibs. There is waist/hip cinching system that you will love! They are extremely comfortable on, will not inhibit any moves and will add value to your day!! I'm 5'6", 127 lbs and have them in small / short. The length is perfect, but if you are over 5'6" and have long legs, go with the regular length.

Everything you need and nothing you don't

After being pleased with my MH shell, I decided to try these bibs and so glad I did. So far they've been worn skiing and snowmobiling in various conditions, from 28 degrees and snowing 2" an hour, pouring rain, and cold dry single digit weather. The waterproofing is superior, and blocks the wind well enough. The fabric is comfortable and doesn't feel constricting. I'm 5'2", about 130 lbs, with pretty beefy legs and butt. The medium short is definitely roomy, which is what I wanted to allow for layering and freedom of movement. I LOVE that there are options for length. This should be standard in the industry! The leg pockets fit a phone perfectly and have stayed waterproof. The chest pockets are more for sunglasses, chapstick etc, and not a phone, but you shouldn't have your phone right next to your beacon anyways. The zipper works well enough for peeing. It's a pretty easy process. Overall, this bib is just a great no-nonsense product that does exactly what you need it to do: Keep you dry and comfortable.

The best of the best

I'm a long time snow professional. I bought these after an extensive search for bibs that are goretex, flexible upper, hinge seat to answer the call of nature- in nature, smart low bulk design. These fit the bill better than any AND they come in short, regular and tall inseam. I'm in love.

Needs improvements

I bought these in a short large. I am 5'3" and 150 lbs. My lower body is thick and the large provided that extra room for extra layers and flexibility. The chest pocket fits my iPhone 12 with a case on vertically in the pocket. The middle pocket on the left side of your waist is really only big enough for chapstick and my airpods. The pockets on the legs aren't really functional but are huge. You really can only put flat things in them. There are no back pockets. I also do not like the fact that the straps do not have the ability to quick release so you have to duck under the suspenders to put them on. It's really a pain. Had MH just put quick release on the side that you step into it would have made life much easier. The side vents are nice and deep so you can cool off when you get hot. I also wish they would have put zippers on the bottom along the leg to make it easier to access my boots. The shipping experience was HORRIBLE!!! I purchased on a Monday. At checkout it said my pants would arrive on Friday of that same week. I finally received my pants 2 weeks, yes, 14 days, later. There were no weather delays that would have held them up. It took them 10 days to leave the MH facility according to the tracking information. Had I known that I would have paid for expedited shipping.
