I got the Freethinker bib from North Face. Completely waterproof and breathable, comfy fit, easy to get in and out of, pockets are a reasonable size...

They are kind of expensive but they're on sale now.

Hey Shesplits

How did the Trew gear hold up this winter? Ended up getting a jacket and pants too. Still another 6 weeks before I can try it out. Awesome gear though!

I grabbed Trew Trewth bibs on sale last year mostly for sledding/sled laps and they seem burly enough for that. The thin material the gators is made out of delaminated though. Like a rubbery opaque material peeled off, but Trew informs me that it's only cosmetic and won't affect waterproofing etc. They threw me 40% off online for my ordeal, which I used to buy a Vaporizer hooded shirt. It's like a Patagucci R1 hoody, but I got it for a better price and it's got a bit of steeze.

Having said all that, my choices for splitting outwear this year are an Eddie Bauer First Ascent Neoteric jacket and Burton AK 3L Hover pants. Super stoked to try out the Neoshell as I find Gore 3L (jackets anyways) just doesn't breathe enough here on the wet coast!

I think I found a pretty good one
http://www.mountaingear.com/webstore/Cl ... 238949.htm

They are pretty sweet bibs that I had been looking at for wife, but she doesn't care enough to spend that much money. The are sweet gore bibs with the upper portion being soft shell. Looks like we have 6, 8, and 10 so it might not be for you. They are in the outlet section of the site so I bet they go on additional discount for black friday.
