I was never a huge fan of bibs. I felt like they didn't fit as well as normal ski/snowboard pants, the straps always got in the way, there were uncomfortable pressure points, and they were very baggy. This Bib proved every single one of those things wrong and converted me to wearing bibs... But only this bib.
One of my favorite features about this bib is the waist strap that you can tighten for a secure fit. There is a strap that you can sinch to the tightness that you would like and then just a clip that holds it in place. It was awesome. I was so comfortable, was saved of the inconvenience of wearing a belt and avoided the baggyness of elsastic waists. This bib also has very comfortable shoulder straps. I always forget that they are there.
In conclusion, this bib is so awesome. Completely waterproof/windproof, great adjustability with no bad pressure points, and a very durable material. It is awesome.
Best BIB to rule them all!

I went through a serious search for a bib that fit well, I been through every brand you can think of and returned a lot, that is also an understatement. Finally, I get these and immediately blown away at the quality! North Face made this in their steep series line for people with one thing in mind, freeride skiing or snowboarding! Whether you are getting off a heli or going side country off a resort. Maybe even just need something that is super water resistent that can keep the elements away from your skin. This bib has all the bells and whistles you want! Velcro straps to tighten around your waist, the fit is more relaxed but not baggy. In addition, my favorite thing about this is the shoulder straps, if you need to wear a pack, the Velcro straps you use to adjust the sizing is on your chest and not your shoulder. Which some bibs do and if you need to carry gear, just makes for a bad time on the shoulders. The zippers are amazing for getting in and out of the bib too! As well as operate as vents if and should things get hot, well two thigh vents to be exact, with one thigh vent also acting as the means of how you get into the bib! Very strategic pockets you can use if you need to pack maps, beacons or anything else you can think of that you need on resort (e.g. beers, snacks, water, etc). The gore is burly as you would expect from a 3 layer piece. And the fuseform technology is placed in areas that need to stretch as well. I am 5"7" and 180 LBS. I chose the Large/Regular size and love the fit. No riding up in the crotch area at all, not tightness in the chest or hips. Feel free to reach out if you need help with this bib.
