A Midwest Flyways Review
These bibs are awesome guys. They’re very comfortable and durable. I’ll give you a quick pros and cons list of these layout bibs in case you are considering purchasing them in the near future.
Very Form Fitting
Bibs are usually quite baggy and tend to get caught under your boots at times, these are the perfect size for my body type. Size Medium Tall ( 5’11’”- 180 lbs.) Needless to say they’re quite comfortable and I can sprint in these things. Make sure you check your measurements on the Sitka website. If you get it right, yours will be as comfortable as mine.
Wind Proof and Water Proof: This is obviously a necessity if you’re a hunt in any condition type of guy. -30 degree weather with a 20-mph wind didn’t even phase me.
Indestructible cloth: As I have stated in other reviews, I am extremely tough on my gear. I have already ran into barbwire fences several times and have not ripped these bibs…how is that even possible? Walking around and kneeling in frozen tilled corn fields have not even scratched the surface of these bibs. **Bonus** Burs don’t stick to this material!
Knee and butt padding
Easily my favorite feature. When getting in or out of your layout blind or fixing decoys or even picking up shells at the end of the day your knees and ass are not sore anymore!!
These bibs run around $545 retail and that really hits the wallet. I would recommend finding a deal, getting an older version, or getting them slightly used to cut down on cost. Here is a link to an earlier version that costs a little less.
The pockets are garbage, they’re so tight it’s impossible to put anything in them. They scratch your hands and that starts to hurt when you get cold. Completely worthless!
