    Another vote for FlyLow’s here. My only issue is my own fault. Went with a sweet color, a teal/mint. They’re SUPER dirty now. Oops. Other than that, they’re dope pants. I’ve got a pretty bad knee, and it’s nice to have access to it without any struggle.

    One time when I dislocated my knee we couldn’t get it back into place. B-P had to piggy back me out, and I had to jimmy rig this setup to ease the pain (slightly). Thank goodness for those big vents! Note, pants still on 😉

    bibs all the way but MY GOD who pays 400+ for a pair of snow pants?? that is a far stretch considering all the other equipment we have to purchase. I like riding in shorts when applicable.. :nononno:

    Westcomb Revenant bib for the eVent breathability + full zips + detachable upper bib part but hate to say didn’t hold up well and Westcomb didn’t deliver on warranty. I was a huge fan of the brand but after this, and talking all the way up to chief marketing honcho, I am not endorsing them. They didn’t care enough to send me a piece of patching material, after I explicitly told them I have a tour coming up. Boo Westcomb! Very lame.

    Currently have been very happy with TREW Trewth bibs, have held up great. Fit is a bit OG but better than the Baker bib which was ridiculous on me. I still like Flylow and try to support them. THeir new Neoshell pant w/ full zippers is very interesting.

    Cheers

    Been stoked on the Patagonia Powder Bowls since I picked them up in 2011. I didn’t pay retail for them & I see them advertised @ discounted prices all the time. Usually you can find them for very reasonable prices, especially for a Gore Tex pant. They have held up to tons of abuse, they’re reinforced on the medial sides of the ankles for crampon protection (come in handy more than a couple times!), and have a great upper-thigh vent.

    My girlfriend just bought a pair of the 2013/14s and they are more or less the same as the ones I’m rocking from a couple of years ago (design-wise).

    I just got the black diamond dawn patrol pants. I love softshell pant,s at least for our climate here in Utah. Hopefully they work as good as they make my ass look.

    I just bought the same pair of dawn patrol bibs for riding out here in Tahoe. Schoeller fabrics have always worked really well for me. Hopefully, this new variation will do the same.

    I agree, they are very “flattering”. LOL.

    I think you’re safe, they’re almost guaranteed to look better.

    Let us all know how the pants work out. Hopefully you’ll judge them on more criteria than simply their ability to wad up around the ankles.

    I am also in the market for a new pair of pants, Bibs hopefully but as pointed out here some of these pants are insanely priced (And then adding currency conversion + tax and shipping to get them to NZ) but ive found a NZ shop that sells the Flylow Baker bibs for a reasonable price. cant say ive heard of them before but some pretty positive words being thrown around here about the brand. worth the purchase then?

    Flylow is solid. Bakers fit super huge on me, it would be nice if you can try them on
