These bibs tick all the boxes and are a great blend of function, style and durability. I was in the market for a lighter-weight option without sacrificing durability and weather resistance...all without breaking the bank. I'm also stoked to be able to support a local PNW brand.
After trying on multiple bibs, I just couldn't find the right fit. Others were either way too tight in the torso/hips or way too baggy. At 6' 115 lbs, (36x32 pants) I'm a bit in between sizes so I ordered both the L and XL. Trew's return/exchange policy is super easy so it was a no-brainer to try both. The Large ended up fitting great! I wanted a fitted look, while still allowing good range of motion. The legs/hips are roomy enough for a lightweight base layer and the torso is fitted, but not tight. With an athletic build (thighs/butt) I wouldn't mind just a bit more room throughout the hips, but not enough to warrant going up to the XL. The pockets are conveniently placed, although I don't see myself using the thigh cargo pockets that often. That's more of a personal preference, so if you need them and are on the fence with sizing, I'd consider up sizing.
The 3L PNW fabric feels supple and durable and I'm confident these will last for many seasons to come.
In addition to the high-quality gear Trew puts out, Customer Service is also some of the best I've experienced. The staff are knowledgeable and went above and beyond to provide info on the fit and tech that goes into their gear!
