As usual Sitka nailed it with these bibs, they do run a little big which I was able to easily exchange them for medium. Over the past couple weeks morning hunts have had temps around 20-24 degrees in WV and this set worked perfectly. Couldn’t ask for better gear! Thanks Sitka Team!

A great addition to any hunting clothing. I have hunted in the bib six times already this season and it has proven to be a great value. Comfortable, versatile and quiet while the zippers on the legs allow for cooling when the day warms up after those chilly mornings in the stand or blind.

California guy here. Used this bib with a base layer to hunt Northwest Colorado. Temps ranged fromn6 to 37 degrees. This bib is amazing. I did a lot of humping around with it. It’s very comfortable and kept me warm. I also recommend getting the ambiant jacket and you will have. A great cold weather system.

These bibs are great. Just like all of my sitka gear is. Best gear made..

The best mid cold gear I’ve ever worn but you can add some thermals or your favorite base layer and you can stall all day in comfort. Extremely quite when bow hunting from tree stand.

Like any other Sitka product..These things are light weight, non binding and built to last! I've said it a million times, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!! Worth every penny!

Overall a good value. The shoulder straps are cheap. I'd rather pay a little more for straps with buckles.

They run a little big. In stratus bibs I wear an XL, in the traverse bibs I wear a Large. 6 foot 210lbs. Stratus bibs catch every singe burr imaginable, these do not. Very quiet and warm. Full length zips are great and the hand warmer does its job. I’m good in these down to low 30s with core lightweight and heavy weight bottoms. Anything colder and I throw the Celsius midi pants on. No wind-stopper material but they do a decent job.

Nice bibs. Very comfortable. Not the best in the wind but with a baselayer they are fine.

Great pant, haven't used this season but taken for test drives. I sized down to a medium from a large, being that the traverse is very stretchy. I would recommend anyone in between sizes to size down unless they want the ability to shove their entire arms down the sides of the pants while wearing them. They are a bit baggy. Only gripe is being predominantly left handed for most things, it would have been nice to have the extra two zippers on the lefts side as well as the right, but oh well.

Surprisingly warm, with a nice base layer and mid layer you would be comfortable in 20’s with this. Could be used in 60’s as well. Built great and ultra quiet. They nailed this one. I’m 5’9 190 and the L fits good, it’s a little baggy if anything.

Love the fit and finish. I ordered the XL and I'm 5-9 230. This is a good system to add to your collection. It already has some good insulation built in for the cooler temps and with the right layering can get you into colder temps.
