I've been wearing Doo Gortex Bibs for 2 seasons. I find even with the bibs I've have a couple occasions that snow got down my back-crack after falling in the powder. I'm not sure the High Pants would cover my back-crack enough to consider them. To each their own but IMO they don't cover enough mid-drift to get a pair. That and I like the extra pockets on the bibs that wouldn't be there with High Pants.

I wear the X Team convertibles. When I want pants, I just zipper off the bib. No complaints.

Thats one thing I did not get this yr which I do need . I have a pair of HJC bibs which are ok but do get wet in the tush. MY thing is I wear a back brace and I think if I get pants they will fall down if I twist and stretch to were the waist slides below the brace. Sheezz I have a hard time finding reg jeans to fit , God forgot to give me a a$$ or maybe it was just paddled off me at a early age :whistling: . Ill have to go with bibs

I picked up some Klim bibs on clearance at Novi for about half of what they normally are...I loved my Polaris bibs, but my rear kept getting a little damp. We'll see how these work, they're supposed to be guaranteed to keep you dry...

After years of wearing the cheap 30 dollar bibs I broke down two years ago and bought some good bibs. The were Yammi bibs but I think they are the same as the Doo brand and others. The first day of riding with a dry butt is worth the extra money.

I've been wearing the same pair of Coldwave bibs for 6 years now. I think that next year I'm going to consider upgrading to a pant style, because the bibs are bulky as hell.
