Average Alaskan Hardgear Review (based on 16 reviews)
Reviewed by dc from Pennsylvania on Monday, February 3, 2014well made, very functional and sturdy, lightweight yet warm as a midweight pair. Runs a bit snug for the size rating.
Reviewed by guy from boston on Thursday, January 30, 2014Haven't had a chance to really test them out, but they look great, and feel like they'll be toasty warm. Can't speak to long term durability, but they seem well made.
Good buy for the price, w a 35% off coupon.
Reviewed by Clint from Missouri on Friday, January 24, 2014At first I thought I got a defective one because the left side of the bib didn't look like it was lined. However, if you unzip the pocket and stick your hand in there, you figure out the lining is in front of the pocket (closer to outside) on the left side instead of behind the pocket (right up against you). This is pretty cool since it will keep whatever you put in that pocket warm.
Really like these - the material appears to be neoprene that has a waterproof coating on the outside. This makes them both lighter and more flexible than an insulated cotton duck material like traditional bibs. Neoprene is also extremely windproof and great insulation.
The lining is fleece made to look like shearling, but I prefer this to the real stuff anyway.
Only complaint is one of the buttons on the side at the waist came apart the first time I tried them on. I recommend giving each button a good squeeze with a bench vise or pair of vise grips to make sure bottom pin is in the button firmly before taking them out for a spin.
Sizing - I wear a 40 or 42 inch waist and the 2XL with 32 inseam is quite snug. I would not be able to wear pants or more than a t-shirt under these comfortably.
