The TREW TREWth Bib Pant offers up your standard waterproofing for a 3 layer pant but has truly exceptional breathability. It’s a very thin light pant that is great for active riders or for those that live in the Backcoutntry.
Size Tried: Medium
Weight: 195 lbs,
Upper Thigh 24.5”
Middle Thigh 22”
Fit: Great fit that isn’t super baggy but isn’t super tight and small. This will fit a wide variety of builds. The only thing I don’t like is the gators are pretty narrow and barely fit over my boots.
Construction: Trew really stepped up the game this year when it comes to construction. It feels much thinner than their old pants but just as sturdy. Also like the semi-stretchy feel to the fabric.
Insulation/Warmth: None at all. It’s a very thin shell but it will block wind.
Waterproofing: Nothing special for 3 layers compared to Gore-Tex and other upper end waterproofing tech but it’s still going to keep you dry and handle areas with lots of wet snow to rain.
Breathability: 40k breathability is exceptional. Most Gore-Tex is at 18k to 25k breathability so it more than makes up for it’s 20k waterproofing. For me breathability is often more important than waterproofing because I run warm and can sweat a lot so if it doesn’t breathe out it’s going to be a problem.
Overall: Even though I’m not that into bib pants these are very doable even though they are a bit on
