These pants are awesome, they are so comfortable, I wore them around my house fro the first 3 days after I got them. So many pockets, not to big legs and a slim fitting chest. The quality of materials is noticeable and they breath and are waterproof. A great buy for anyone who needs a quality pair of snow pants. I was am always comfortable in them all day.
I would recommend this product.

The quality of these bibs are bomber. However, at 6'2 200 lbs a size large is completely wrong. I may have a larger chest diameter than most. This made the medium out of the question as it is a snug fit around the chest. I can normally get away with a medium size ski pant depending on the brand. The waist and leg volume of this bib in a large isn't made for any male athlete I've ever seen. The lower portion of these bibs are way too big...even if you were going for a baggy look in my opinion. If Mtn Hardware changed the sizing I would buy these in a second.

These pants do exactly what they are designed to do. They are a great set of bibs for riding in the backcountry. If I had a complaint, and it is minor, I would make the suspender straps slightly wider and thicker so that they didn't bunch up in the hinges. But that is so minor compared to the overall performance. These pants rock. I am on my second pair. And that is only because I had to go down a size having purchased the wrong size the first time around. Durable, breathe well, and fit great. I am 5'10", 180 lbs.
I would recommend this product.

I'm 6' and 180 pounds, with a 33 waist and 42 inch chest. I normally would wear a medium pants and medium-large shirt size. I ordered this freeride bib in medium. The fit was perfect in the waist, seat and legs but too tight in the chest. Even with only a base layer underneath, I was afraid that I'd bust a seam with an agro move. A stretch panel in the chest side seam would be a great addition.
Overall the cut and quality was great, fabric seemed durable. The pockets were really what attracted me to this bib, and I was a little disappointed in the size of the pockets. Lots of them, just all were kind of small. I ended up returning the bibs - just not exactly what I'm looking for.
I would recommend this product.

...until I rode in the Freeride Bib! I can't believe I had never switched to a bib-style riding pant until now. The Freeride is extremely comfortable once I got the shoulder straps dialed in, as I didn't have to ratchet down a belt. At 6'3", ~190, the medium fits great! Much better than the large size I tried on in the torso and waist, but the legs are just a little too short when sitting. Luckily, the internal gaiters keep the legs down around boots for the most part.
These pants are super practical for any kind of use; phone and wallet is kept dry and secure in upper zip pockets, and cargo pockets are big enough for goggles, lunch, whatever.
Even though they're not insulated, these pants kept me comfortable in some very cold temperatures, and there's plenty of room for layering underneath if needed.
Definitely recommended for anyone looking for this style of riding pant. I'm always extremely pleased with MH's quality.
I would recommend this product.

Well made with all the right pockets. However,the chest fit way to tight. I couldn't take a deep breath. There is no elastic or adjustment in the chest area. I am 6'2'' and 200 lbs. My chest is not that big, 44. The length was good, so I couldn't go up in size. Had to send it back.
I do not recommend this product.
