I went back and forth on what size to order and decided on a large over the XL. As long as I lay off the carbs and Christmas ham, this gear should be just right. ;) I’m 6’ and 200lbs and carry most my weight in my chest and thighs which is where most gear is too snug on me. This L bib and capow jacket allow plenty of wiggle room without being too baggy. I was rocking the eagle pant in an XL up until now and realize I probably should have been in an L all along.
Gear seems well built and Trew has always been great with warranty for me so I’m stoked. Thanks guys and gals at Trew! Keep up the fine work.
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.
I have no idea I bought the bibs in July and you are asking me to review them in August. Let you know in 4 months or so........
I purchased these at the beginning of the year and could not be happier. Logged 25 days, 10 touring days and 15 resort days through the Canadian Rockies in all types of weather. The material and the pocket layout is exceptional. I did get one small rip on the inside leg near the boot protector, but it is an easy patch and was outside the boot liner.
I do have one recommendation for Trew, I'm 6'1, 155 lbs and I like length in my pants. I found the medium fit great in the belly but the length was too short and the large was a little wide but the length was perfect. Any roadmap for offering 'long' versions, adding a couple inches of length for taller skinny guys?
Overall Bib has more quality, style, comfort and practicality than anything else I've seen or worn.
Really impressed with the quality and fit of these bibs. Really excited that I got them for the price that I did and love supporting a local small business who produce such a high quality product. The only thing i don’t completely love is the width of the pant openings, but it isn’t noticeable with your ski boots on. Will definitely be back for a capow jacket at some point!
The capow bibs are another solid performer made by the best bib company in the game. The pocket layout is on point and the stretchy fabric is great for all those kick turns!
If I am not wearing my Capow's then I am wearing my Trewth Bibs. It's a vicious cycle, but I like to be dry and comfortable.
I lean towards the Capow bibs fors warmer temps and the Trewth's for colder days.
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
