Defective and Disappointed

I was very excited to receive my purchase (I bought the bibs and matching jacket) until I noticed the sewing of the shoulder straps is very uneven. The right shoulder strap is sewn in a few centimeters further in than the other, resulting in an uneven fit. I reached out to customer service only to be told there is nothing they can do about the defective item they shipped me, and I can only return it. I am disappointed with the quality of the bibs and the lack support received from customer service regarding an issue out of my control. Hopefully this is a one-off and does not happen to others ordering from OR!

Best ever!

I've worn the carbide bib pants snowshoeing in sticky wet above freezing temperature snow and frigid dry 20 degree snow and they've been great. Being able to comfortably go without a bottom layer in warmer snow and adding wool long johns on the freezing days makes them so versatile. Plus they are incredibly comfortable. I resisted using bib-style forever having always used snowboard style pant but now that I've used these I donated all my snowboard pants. That extra little layer going up the back made the days so comfortable - no slow loss of body heat during the day. Cannot say enough.

Great Backcountry Bibs

These are perfect for Backcountry Adventures. These are truly shells (no lining) which is exactly what I wanted. They are flexible and move well with plenty of vents. They are easy to get on and off, and pack up small. I appreciate all the pockets as well.

Perfect bibs for front and backcountry

I've used these in the CO backcountry and at Park City and Santa Fe resorts. They're highly movable and adapt to your environment. I loved the front chest pocket for my cell and vents to dump heat. I'm 5'4" 122lbs (muscular build) the XS length, hip, and thought area fit great.

Love the bib but way too long

I love this bib but at 5'4" it is 6" too long causing me to trip and fall. I rolled the hem under the powder guard but it looks ridiculous. There is no easy way to hem them without losing a lot of detail. It appeared I was the only one on the slope with this issue. . Maybe offer Regular and tell in length?

Disappointed with quality

I'm disappointed with the quality of these bibs, especially for the price point. After about a month's use, the fabric is tearing at the seams. This is most noticeable where the fabric is reinforced near the inside of the ankle. The fit is good (5'4" and 140 pounds) and medium fits well. They are a little long, but a non issue with a boot with a thick sole. I have other Outdoor Research products that have held up for years, so I'm upset with this investment for snow pants that aren't as high quality and are already falling apart.

Awesome pants

Replaced these after ten years in another pant. So lightweight, breathable and as warm as you layer them up. Great pants and love the bib.

Love em

Love these. I was worried they'd be a hassle to go to the bathroom in since they don't have a drop seat, but the long zipper down the side in combo with the stretchy overall straps makes it quite easy. I'm a size 6-8 and the medium fits well with room to layer underneath. Thanks OR!

Super Comfortable

These are the most comfortable bibs I've ever owned. I finally upgraded after many years, and I am super happy I picked these. I ordered a L but kind of wish I went with a XL. (I'm 5'6" wear a size 9 jean) Fit great everyplace but the bum. It's not enough to make me return. The fabric is lightweight, has a slight stretch which is great for movement. I got these because I ski and snowmobile for work.
