Trewth bibs seem bomb proof. Really excited to test them on on the mountain next year. I paired with a Cosmic jacket after how impressed I was with the quality and top notch customer support. I'm 5'-11", 200 lb, and I originally ordered a large trewth bib but exchanged for a medium. Large cosmic fit like a glove. GNAR
Within 2 days skiing with this bib there were a half dozen cuts on the inside boot cover on the "SuperFabric". I ski in a pretty narrow stance and this is clearly from my edges occasionally clipping the fabric. I would have thought that this "SuperFabric" was specifically chosen to be able to stand up to this normal use but unfortunately it's an incredibly weak and thin fabric. I love everything about this Bib except for the fact that this material is clearly a horrible choice and I've effectively just thrown away $400 as there is this is not covered in the return policy & there is no chance these pants last more than 1 season.
If you've purchased these as a skier with a narrow stance and not taken the tags off I strongly consider you return and look for something with more durable fabric. The "reinforced book cuffs" are no good.
I am 6" and I am usually between sizes but talked to the Trew Crew and a few friends who already have those bibs and they recommended size Medium. I thought about the Capow bib but was told that the Trewth bib is a bit wider in certain parts so I went for the Trewth over the Capow bib. They fit like as if they were tailored for me. The material feels incredible and the locations of the pockets are thought through. Those bibs totally live up to its hype. Could you please make those bibs in gull grey next season, same as the Capow Bib :-)
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
