Burton Reserve Gore-Tex 2L Bib 2023 Review by The Good Ride

Swipe Right: Excellent Waterproofing, construction and functionality for this price.

Swipe Left: Mesh in the legs is not as protective as some taffeta liners.

Summary

The Burton Reserve Gore-Tex 2L Bib runs thicker and isn’t as technical as the Cyclic but gives you a lot of waterproofing at this price point.

Fit

The fit is very middle ground and works with a wide variety of body types.

Construction

Burton always does a great job with construction and this is no exception. Gore-Tex always gives you better construction.

Waterproofing/Breathability

I like the outer layer of the Cyclic Bib a little better for shedding off wet snow and rain but the Burton Reserve Gore-Tex 2L Bib isn’t bad and will take a lot to get through the Gore-Tex membrane in the middle.

Pockets

Lot’s of pockets happening. That is always a nice advantage of the Cyclic Bib.

Gaiters/Cuffs

Love the adjustable cuff that can lift up the back part of the cuff so you don’t ruin it hiking, skating or just walking around the resort.

Venting

You have one continuous vent that can work as 2 separate vents or one vent from leg to leg. It really lets the heat out on a hot day.

Liner

There is Taffeta lining in some places but throughout most of the leg there is a very thin porous mesh that doesn’t do the best job protecting the Membrane compared to Taffeta throughout.

Conclusion

This is a great resort friendly bib for those that see a lot of wet weather.
