I just got these and wore them for several hours sitting in the snow; they were warm and dry. The suspender thing is not really an issue- although they are widely spaced, just unclip, cross in the back, and reclip for a secure fit. I'm very happy with these and the big game system. I'm 5'10" and the M was a good fit.

by WNYOutdoors High Quality Overalls with Room for Improvement
I have been hunting with the Big Game System Bib Overalls for the entire 2013 hunting season. After completing about 15 hunts, I have found these pants to be lightweight, comfortable, quiet, durable and waterproof. The available camo patterns are also very nice looking
Now for the constructive criticism:
1) The should straps always wants to fall off your shoulders. This is very annoying. You can work around this issue by wearing a jacket over these pants, but still, this shouldnt happen.
2) The second major reservation I have about these pants is the fact that they are not breathable. By the time my hunts are over, it is common for my body to be covered in sweat. I freqently keep my phone or GPS in my pockets and the moisture can fry both of these items. The source of the problem appears to be the nylon / polyester liner inside the pants. It is unclear why this product has such a liner.
Obviously, these two concerns limit the usability of this product. Consequently, I cannot recommend this product in good faith to my friends.

Rated 2 out of 5 by haney "Unique Suspender Design" is flawed
These were mostly comfortable and relatively quiet.
The way the suspenders are attached to the bid is not well designed, despite Bean's assertion that it is unique. The suspenders are attached, not so much in the rear, as off to the sides in the back. This makes it feel as if the suspenders are always trying to slip off the shoulders.
There is a reason suspenders are usually attached further back or criss-cross in the back.... because that design works better.

Soft quiet fabric was great while stalking. However bibs did not have enough insulation to keep me warm while hunting from the stand and I found a tear in my bibs after only four days of wear.
