The bell bottom is extreme and totally ridiculous. Also they are all really long.
I am 5’9“ 155lb wearing a small. I am going to hem a solid 3” off the bottom to correct the length and take some of the enormous bell end off. Let’s stick with function before some weird fashion trend. The cuffs will certainly hit each other while skinning and I would be nervous about hangups on a decent. The thigh is plenty baggy enough to carry the line down and not be tight on a boot cuff.
I have a pair from several years ago with a kangaroo pocket across the entire bib.
The new pocket scheme is less useful to me. If you want organization I would add file type dividers but don’t diminish the huge potential stowage volume. I’ve carried skins, water bladder, down jacket, etc. in the old ones. This is the biggest benefit of bibs. You guys are the bib guys, bring back the big pocket. I guess i’ll have to start carrying my back pack again, blech.
I’m keeping them, but I will be doing some sewing. I like my old ones better.
