OutDry™ Extreme is our first ever waterproof and breathable fabric technology constructed with a waterproof layer on the outside and soft, wicking fabric inside. Traditional raingear uses interior waterproof membranes which don't allow for air flow, and water-repellent coating that degrades over time. With OutDry™ Extreme, the rugged exterior is an incredibly water-tight membrane with millions of microscopic perforations that let water vapor escape through a wicking membrane directly fused to the shell.
The PFG Force 12 Bib is fully seam-sealed and features OutDry Extreme waterproof/breathable technology with bold, external taping, a two-way, polyurethane Vislon front zipper and Light Rail zippers on the lower legs and hand pockets. This rugged, technical bib also features abrasion-resistant overlays on the backside and knees, and comfort stretch fabric on the sides and across the back for increased mobility and a superior fit. The suspenders double as a belt if you want to wear these bibs as a pant. This bib, when worn with the jacket is all you need to stay bone dry all the livelong day.

Great ProductBeing a fishing guide for the last 37 years I've tried them all. This one is the best! I sit on a boat chair that retains water and after an all day rain there was no moisture seeping through the bottom or zipper. I stayed dry even when driving my jet boat through rain and high winds. If you're looking for light weight rain bibs, these are it!

Another great product from Columbia SportswearThe other review was completely inaccurate. I am 5"11 230 lbs. I got the large bibs they fit beautifully. Plenty of room. I sat, squatted, stepped up on rails and these had plenty of room to work in. The other review said they rode up to the middle of his shin when he sat down. Totally untrue. These are the best waterproof bibs I own. They easily Trump my Helly Hansen bibs.

Great Product Poor ExecutionBeen a long time fan of Columbia products. Very disappointed with the bibs. I'm 5'11", 200 lbs, athletic build. I bought the bibs in xl thinking it would give me enough room to layer. Went to North Dakota to fish Devils Lake. Long and short of it, when sitting on the boat in the fishing chair the bibs ride up at the bottom leaving pants and boots exposed mid shin. Fishing heavy waves and rain my pants and inner boots were soaked on a daily basis. I had to continually stand up, pull the bibs down and try to cover my ankles. Product worked great against keeping rain off me where it actually covered clothing. Feel like I wasted $300.
