I bought Trewth bibs in 2012 or 2013. I proceeded to put 30ish hours a weekend on them doing ski patrol In Nova Scotia. Our winters suck, rain, ice, slush, it’s brutal. That more so means ski patrolling at a pro level involves lots of crappy fence work (we drill holes for bamboo, never been able to jam it in the snow) and LOTS of sled work. These pants have held up to all those snowmobile use, crap fencing and padding abuse, and lots of skiing and still are in good shape. Biggest Paiute I’ve had is the sealed pocket seams letting go, and finally destroyed a couple teeth on a side zipper (did I mention Og tree the with a heavy plastic molded zipper) Christmas of 2018 snowmobiling in BC. Wire tied it back together with an old pass hanger in an emergency and hav route two more season on them.
Two friends have since bought newer Trewth bibs and love them, and I’m looking at MAYBE upgrading this year. They are still fully intact, but not quite as water proof as they once were. Tech wash breathes some life into them, but they deserve a break. Hahahha But then again I said that the last two seasons and kept going with them!
