Absolutely wonderful bibs with smart features
Oh, the odyssey I had to undertake to find bibs that fit well for a tall lady with hips - I have tried on so many from different brands that I lost count with the issue that they fit awkwardly, had too much material in the front, or would just be too short and hit my crotch. Enter these Snowdrifter bibs - perfect fit! Flattering too. I always loved... Read More the length on Patagonia snow pants, and these are no exception. I love the smart features too, like the cross back strap, and the zipper/button combo on the side so I don't have to take my jacket off when going to the restroom - key!!! The material and construction are high quality, the zippers are sweet and waterproofed, and smooth. I love the pockets - handy big chest pocket in front for snacks/your beacon/phone, two side pockets on the thighs - with a smaller pocket inside. The cherry on top is the sweet color - Smokey Violet is a perfect description of it - not dull but a nice subtle lavender. Beautiful bibs! A shining example of why I love Patagonia!
Stuck inside the bib
Very unhappy with the rear flap system. It is difficult to reach the backside snaps on the rear flap and with waterproof zipper material, zipping and unzipping is also difficult. To make matters worse, the zipper pulls on the flap are too small- hard to grasp, and not very robust-making it even more difficult to zip or unzip. Also, the little elast... Read Moreic bands that you slide the suspender hooks through are not made of very tough material either. One of my hooks already pierced a hole through the middle of the elastic in my struggles to get out of the bib. Give yourself time and take some deep breaths, or take a friend if you need to use the bathroom, otherwise you are stuck in this bib. Lastly, the medium and large sizes run a little long. I did not see an option for choosing a different inseam size, which would have been nice.
Thank you for your feedback, Christina! We're sorry to hear about the troubles you had with the drop-seat and the suspender loops on those bibs. I would recommend checking out our [Pow Slayer Bibs](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-powslayer-ski-snowboard-bibs/30331.html?dwvar_30331_color=LIT&cgid=womens-snow-pants#start=1) as a possible alternative. The lower rise and larger double zipper make trips to the restroom much easier - no bathroom buddy required! If you'd like to initiate a return or exchange on those bibs, you are welcome to do so [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return). Cheers!
I would happily purchase these ski pants if they came in a true petite. After reading the reviews how the pant was too long for 5 ft plus women, they would be “miles” too long for me. I am pretty short at 5 ft. It’s really difficult to purchase ski clothing for petite women. Manufacturers, please consider us.
Thank you so much for this feedback and we are sorry that we aren't currently carrying a size that works for you. Hopefully with more comments like this we will be able to in the future. In the meantime, please feel free to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) these back to us.
I really like the material and color of these, but they’re WAY too long. I’m 5’5”, and these are a good 4 inches too long. I called Patagonia to see about alterations, but it isn’t offered on these particular pants. Unfortunately I had to return them.
Hi Jennifer! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the Bibs were too long. Feedback like this is crucial to improving products for future seasons, so we'll pass this along to our design crew!
Not for shorter ladies
I loved the bib, however I am 5’3” and it was 7” too long. I’m disappointed there is no petite version.
