Marc Lundwrote a review of Backcountry Cottonwoods Gore-Tex Bib Pant - Men's on December 13, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I was fortunate enough to be one of the product testers for this item and I give it two thumbs up. I have worked as a snowboard instructor and the uniforms I would wear had a similar Gore-Tex outer layer but this item in particular was much nicer to wear. It is easier to move in than most other Gore-Tex Products. It isn't stretchy but it is more flexible and movable than most of the ski pant's I've worn.
It breathes really well and is super waterproof. As one of the product testers I was put into a shower while wearing this with the corresponding jacket doing all sorts of exercises and movement's and did not get wet at all, it was pretty fun to test out.
The feature of being able to convert the bibs to pants as well is very unique. When I ski and board I like using the bibs so that no snow gets under my clothes, then when I snow hike it's nice to shed the bib.
The amount of pocket space in and zippers is a great addition as well, I feel like I can keep all of my personal effects on me without needing a ski-pack. The vent works very well when you need that little extra breath-ability.
Overall these are a must, especially for the price, you cannot beat this Gore-Tex product, It is one of the most amazing pieces of equipment you can have in your winter wardrobe.
