    Bibs for touring- who knew?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I'll admit- I was a little bit skeptical about bib pants for backcountry ski pants, but was pleasantly surprised. The ease of peeing with these puppies was one of the things that struck me most! All you have to do is reach into your jacket a little ways, undo the side zipper on the bibs and get into position. Can be done with backpack and gloves on. The bibs almost self gather your shirt and layers back into themselves as you rezip- so there's no bothersome re-tucking in of shirts, jackets etc. If you have poor circulation in your hands or the weather is nasty, you're less likely to take care of your peeing needs cuz you don't want to remove gloves or deal with a fly, belt, tucking in, blah blah blah. So, turns out, ease of peeing really makes a big selling point for the bibs! Also, because the bibs cover your lower back, you don't worry about getting snow up your back. The fabric is softer and more comfortable than other hard shell fabrics, there are good pocket options, there are good leg zips for venting, and the fit is comfy. I'm 5'8" and about 145 lbs, wear a medium and the fit seems true to size.
