I'll start off by giving a sizing review.
I'm 6'2" 165 and was on the edge between a Medium or Large so I ordered both.
The medium is definitely snug around the legs but fit well in the waist, however I had to fully extend the suspenders so they wouldn't ride up in my crotch. Overall I would have kept the mediums but they didnt offer much room for baselayers.
The Large offers way more room in the legs and with the velcro waist straps still allow me to get a tight fit around my hips. I ended up keeping the large and have plenty of room to layer appropriately underneath.
These bibs are considerably heavier duty than I imagined. I think with the right baselayers I'll be able to use these from late October through December in Mid Michigan. Pocket design is great, im very impressed with the hand muff,the camo pattern is flawless per usual. My only concern will be the noise that the waterproof butt patch has. The theory behind it is great and I doubt it will be a big deal but it's definitely something to be aware of.
Super quiet and more insulation than I thought when I ordered but the perfect amount. Be perfect for mid-late season
I’ve been hoping for a pair of bibs from First Lite to fit the peak for the bowhunting season (October-November) and these seem to be just what the doctor ordered. I’m not sure I love the waterproof seat for my purposes (treestand/saddle hunting) but I understand the thought process. The hand warmer muff/kangaroo pocket was brilliantly designed, it stays warm without chemical warmers simply because instead of being on the very outside of the jacket like most others, it’s under the jacket and close to the body. I’m excited to get these into the woods this fall- glad to see yet another innovative design from FL.
Just got my Solitude pants in the mail today!
I’m 5’ 9” #155 and I ordered a Medium, I normally order size Small in pants but figured I’d go up a size for layering and I’m happy I did.
Fit : Fit is perfect! I still have plenty of adjustment in the straps and the leg length is perfect.
Warmth : These are muchhhh warmer then I expected! ( not really a bad thing ) I think I will be able to wear these in the late season with proper layering here in PA. Going to be a bit warm for walking to the stand in early/mid October I think.
Material: VERY quite! Only noise is in the butt pad area but I don’t mind because it will keep me dry if my stand is wet.
Pockets: I love the big pocket on the chest with the waterproof zipper and the hand warmer will be perfect! Also has a zipper fly with a wind blocker.
Overall I love these!
First off, these bibs are NICE. Material is excellent, and EXTREMELY quiet. Plenty of insulation for the southeast, and I expect these to get me through the entire season here in GA. I put these on as soon as I got them, with the rest of my layers and was burning up in my 74 degree house. First thing I noticed, other than the heat, was the snugness. I bought a Med, at the advice of a sales staff ( I wear a medium in everything else) and they are a bit tight. I’m 5’10” 180 lbs, with skinny long legs, and a shorter torso. I wear a 33-34 waist pants. I adjusted the shoulder straps out all the way, and had to fully unzip the legs to get them on without bunching my pants and base layers up to my knees. Also a bit tight around my belly with the Velcro hip tabs adjusted as loose as possible. When squatting and rotating side to side I could feel some restriction in the shoulder straps and butt section, and the legs squeezed a bit more than I would like. Returning for large. If you are on the edge of mediums, go ahead and size up on the bibs so you’ll have room for layers underneath.
Jacket in medium fits perfect, and has plenty of room for 1-2 base layers, and an uncompaghre underneath, and I could probably gain 10 lbs before it got tight.
Can’t wait to put this kit to the test.
