Second day I wore these bibs the right leg zipper split open. Took quite an effort and long time to fix but the self sealing zipper finally was fixed. Same thing again the third time I wore these...the fix was quicker. Wore them a few times after these two problems and everything was OK after that. I hope I do not get this problem again when I use them on my next trip. Other than this, they are very warm and lightweight.
I would recommend this product.

They are warm. Love the light weight. I used them ice fishing on the MN - Canada border in January with temps around Zero F and was comfortable. The zippers seem awful light weight for clothing meant for mountain use. But they worked ok for three days. I hope they hold up. I am 67 yrs old, 5'-6", 180 lbs, with a 46" chest and found I needed the XL size. The chest when zipped was too tight over a heavy undershirt on the "Large". The outer fabric, tight weave ripstop nylon (I believe), is water repellent. I got it wet several times when pulling trout thru the ice. The water just beads up and wipes off. The same is true for fish blood and slime.
Because I have a 28" inseam I had the inseam altered. On the inside of each leg, I put velcro hooks horizontally along the bottom and another strip of velcro loops horizontally above the first quilt stitching. When folded under it shortened the legs about 5 inches. I also put four velcro loop strips vertical between the two horizontal velcro strips, to allow for any adjustment between full length and the 5" max. When zipped down the zipper stops at the fold of the cuff.
This would be a great addition for your designers to incorporate.
Only reason for 4 star rating is I have not used them enough to know how well they will hold up.
I would recommend this product.

Pants are a warm and light weight with good loft suitable for use in extreme alpine mountaineering. Bib top is thin so it fits well under a jacket. Pants are comfortable and work well with gaiters and climbing boots.
I would recommend this product.
