TREW Roam Three Quarter Bib 2016 Review by The Good Ride
The TREW Roam 3/4 Bib Pant is interesting because it’s not quite a bib but also not quite a pant. It’s got waterproofing that isn’t mind-blowing for a 3 layer pant but breathability that truly is.

Size Tried: Medium
Weight: 195 lbs,
Upper Thigh 24.5”
Middle Thigh 22”
Fit: Feels a bit on the tight side for a backcountry pant but still there is still room for me to move and it’s not tight in any vital areas. It’s semi-tight done right.
Construction: Solid construction and although it’s super thin and light it doesn’t feel like it’s going to gash open if you snag a branch.
Waterproofing: Nothing special for a 3 layer pant but it’s still good enough to deal with lots of wet snow and rain.
Breathability: Really special breathability here. 40k is really special and to many (like me) more important than waterproofing. If you are wet on the inside then what does it matter if you have a waterproof outer layer.
Overall: I like this pant and although I’m a resort rider I can really appreciate it’s tech. It’s a really good fit for an active rider who runs warm but an even better fit for a backcountry rider looking for exceptional breathability.
