Trevor Livingstonwrote a review of Backcountry Cottonwoods Gore-Tex Bib Pant - Men's on February 12, 2020
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I have nearly three months on these bibs now. They're rugged, waterproof, and all around awesome. The fit on them is excellent, with actriculation in the knees and crotch that provides mobility for boot packs. The outer fabric is super reinforced along the boots, and durable everywhere else. I also LOVE the myriad of pockets, with several pant pockets of different sizes and shapes as well as two veristale bib pockets for a beacon or a gaiter.
These pants are pretty heavy though. They are made with Gore-Tex, which guarantees a waterproof and breathable fabric, but I will still be grabbing my Rush LT pants for touring as those are more breathable and lighter than these bibs. However I will be grabbing these for any big sends I am working towards and for every inbound day for the next couples years. I can trust that the fabric on these pants will hold up to every branch, rock, and edge that might come across them, and I can trust that the Gore-Tex membrane will keep me warm and dry no matter the conditions.
