When your bibs last ten years you need to tell folks. This is my go-to bib for any winter activity that I will be human powered. Superb durability and fantastic venting.
- Flexible for every move on the hill. When performing sketchy kick turn on the skin track these bibs never held me back.
- Wish the waistband came up a couple more inches. Otherwise the bib is perfect
The greatest advantage is the ability to easily zip and unzip legs for breathable venting during uphill travel. I paused as I went to grab my bibs for a day of skinning and skiing the other day. Wow, ten years.
So often we complain about the shortcoming of a piece of gear. But I just have to give a shout-out to Mountain Hardwear. The number of backcountry adventures and daily use for these bibs is a testament to the name Hardwear.
I’m not particularly easy on gear and have been happy with this product as they have never let me down. Superior craftsmanship and materials.
I pair this pant with Mountain Hardwear micro puffy jacket with hood. Same love of this item. Durable is the key.
