Locked down by Covid-19 but can’t wait till Dec to give it a go. Look fab though...
My pocket game is now on point. My entire change over is made easier. The uphill is no longer a wet suck fest thanks to the Trewth bibs awesome side vent zipper design. You can go to the bathroom without removing your bibs, It's amazing.
I bought a second pair within 1 week! Thanks for that Hotpow 40%
This item is designed for the backcountry tourer. Trewth bibs and Capow bibs are game changers.
With all the resorts closed due to the pesky virus, I’ve been spending all my days in the backcountry with my new bibs and I have zero complaints! I sized up a bit and they are plenty roomy. The beacon pocket is super-handy. The color matches my shell better than my old bibs (so my wife stopped teasing me about my lack of fashion sense). My favorite bit is the sticky rubber on the bottom of the straps, as my old bibs we’re always falling off-shoulder. I’m a happy camper! Hopefully we can return to the resorts some day and I’ll test’m out in the park!
Hard to fit a hard charging long-legged 14 year old freeride kid who needs some Trew badass bibs with room for a beacon, snacks and “Whatever!” Great features and the pockets! Long, comfy, warm, good movement allowance and the colors are niiiice to! Thank you Trew!
Trew is an awesome company this is creating excellent products. They not only have top of the line equipment but they also have a world class customer support team to back it up. If you are interested in a bib that keeps you dry and warm, is breathable, has tons of well places pockets, is durable, fits extremely well, and increases your steez buy Trew products.
I believe this is the very first time I've written a review for something but these are the best bibs out there so I gotta tell my frands. I am 6' 185# and got the large which fits great. I took them out for their maiden tours in the southern Wallowas of NE oregon and they exceeded any other bib I've worn in various conditions. Pockets and vents are very thoughtful with a good beacon pocket and thigh pockets are awesome for storing gloves or skins without noticing they are there. We had a day of 40+F and sunny and I wore without a base layer and had zero discomfort or trash bag feel. The fit sets them apart as well with a good balance of room without being too baggy. I was unsure how they'd work with snowboard boots but they fit perfectly over them. They are trim enough to not catch crampons on but not euro alpine skinny jeans either. So far they havent leaked at all in moderately wet conditions but I haven't had a proper NW shower in them yet. Big fan
Snagged these bibs at the beginning of the season and now have about 45 days in them. I couldn't be happier.
The fit - I am a 6'1 lanky build, and I ordered a medium. Coming from a baggier (more spacious) bib, I am happy with the form fit. Even though it is more trim, I don't feel that I lost any range of motion or ability. Overall, they really nailed the fit for skinnier folks.
Durability - I have used these both for resort days hot lapping lifts, and back country days. I have not seen signs of wear through any of the joint areas (knees, hips, backside). Additionally the weather facing pockets and zippers seem durable and can handle an aggressive pull without breaking.
Could do better - the kangaroo pocket isn't as awesome as I would like. It doesn't have enough room and I also noticed that I am cautious when opening and closing both chest zippers compared to the weather facing zippers (as if I am going to rip the piece off from the zipper); a larger pocket with a more durable zipper would be $$$$.
Final Thoughts - easy. If you to want chase powder out-of-bounds, or rip hot laps in-bounds, then buy these top-notch bibs.
First bibs I've ever owned and i'm "Trewly" converted to the brand. At 5'11" 135lbs I bounced between a SM and XS and landed on the XS for the slimmer look since my legs are twigs (length was slightly shorter but still enough with suspender adjustments). They fit perfect and look great. Trew really nailed it on the streamline fit (the style of the bibs is how I gravitated to the brand in the first place) Ease of movement and super light weight making them playful which really enhances my experience while riding. Everything about these makes me a more confident rider.
The technical membrane is amazing. I work for an outerwear company that uses gore-tex in everything so I was skeptical at first but after some research & discussion with developers/ fabric professionals I was assured that the materials used here are top quality. I've put about 15 days into these this season and they've kept me bone dry. My legs and chest don't over heat either with how well they breathe. The outer fabric still doesn't wet out (Awesome DWR treatment). The water just beads up and slips right off. Really impressive.
My only complaint would be the chest pockets. Just wish they were a little bigger. Oh and the fact that there is no Toffee colorway this season. Please bring it back to the capow. I went with the green and I am however very happy with how clean they look.
Aside from the chest pockets and color offering I could not be happier with these bibs. They come highly recommended and are well worth the purchase. They will not disappoint.
So far these bibs have been just what I was looking for. I'm a 70/30 resort to BC kind of person but I was looking for more streamlined fit just out of personal preference. At 5'10" 155lbs I went with the medium and they rock the perfect balance of slimmer fitting while not skinny. Great movement, never feel like it's too baggy or restricting anywhere. The ventilation is quick and easy, allowing fast adjustment to the changing weather.
Some notes on the pockets. Love the beacon pocket, super convenient. The side pockets are secure and plenty deep for phone wallet keys any other slimmer things. I'm not a huge fan of having things in thigh pockets in general so I don't really use those but they're definitely spacious. The small diagonal chest pocket really is the party pocket. I've found it's great for easy access to smaller items like earbuds or a snack, but is still large enough for a beer!
Overall incredibly satisfied, hoping these bibs last me for years to come.
I purchased these bibs at the start of the season and have since put easily 100 days on them. I absolutely love them. Here are my thoughts on them.
What I love:
- The fit and look - I'm a tall guy (6'3, 180lbs, wearing a Large) but with big legs. These fit my legs perfectly without being exsessivly baggy elsewhere, but still maintaining that steezy freeride fit and style.
- The Weight/Breath-ability - This was the major selling point for me. I wanted a pair of bibs that wouldn't sweat me to death. These don't. Long days are no long a damp, unpleasant experience.
- The Pockets - One of my favorite things about these bibs are the two, massive thigh pockets. As an outdoor professional, having big pockets to stash everything in, is a huge plus (field book, gloves, ski straps, coffee mug ect.) The beacon pocket is also amazing.
What I don't love:
- The instep protectors - These are my one issue with the CAPOW bib and what kept it from a perfect score. The odd dotted/textured instep protector gets snagged on ski edges and I've worn mine off in several spots and now those areas are vulnerable to being cut. Also the protection area could wrap around the back of the leg a little more. I think a smoother more durable fabric would be ideal in this area.
All in all, these bibs are a staple in my outerwear kit. I don't ski without them now. Aside from the minor gripe with the instep protectors, these bibs are perfect. Could not recommend more highly.
Greetings TREW Crew,
Hope you and the rest of the TREW crew are doing well and staying safe. The retro bibs are EPPIC. When they I arrived I had to try them on. They fit like a glove. I was surprised to see that there is no zipper on the front of the bid which is what I am used to. I like how high they come up on my chest and back. The quality is excellent. I like the shoulder straps and the friction material that will keep them from falling off your shoulders. I also like the rubber shoulder strap keeper. What a genius idea. When I saw them in your add, I through the keeper was plastic. Enough pockets for anyone. Oh, they look terrific. I love the green and purple colors from yesteryear. There is no doubt in my mind that your retro bibs will keep me warm on the mountain. I know that you have a matching jacket. However, I wish that instead of the off yellow on the jacket, it was a purple to match the bids. Still considering purchasing it.
Excellent, awesome, terrific pair of bibs. Wish I would have purchased them years ago. Please thank you staff for me.
