Bibs for use on board fishing

Recommended Posts

I will be purchasing bibs for use on-board in the early and late season fishing trips. Please help me with your recommendations. I have looked at the Frogg Toggs Dealer Pro Advantage Bibs as an example of what I am considering. thank you

From my experience I say spend some money on a good pair of bibs that will last you.i have had a few pairs of cheaper bibs and they don't last more than 1 season. I had a pair of sims that were great and would have lasted a long time but they came up missing. On black Friday I bought some from west marine and I like them so far. True timber has some out now that are $99 but I wasn't sure about them. Has anyone tried them?

I have the Rivers West Kokanee Bib and Jacket. The set runs anywhere from $250 to $280 depending on where you buy it. It’s been an excellent foul weather set and IMO is right up there with the way more expensive offerings from Cabelas and/or BPS! Very compressible too and takes up very little room!

Last season I went with a Rivers West Bass Jacket and Bibs.  Stayed warm and dry last spring in the rain and cold weather. Little heavier gear than their Kokanee suits.  I went with Rivers West after using their hunting clothing and having that hold well.  Not a big name brand, but my experience is that it is good stuff.

Grundens hands down. Bought mine over 40 years ago when I kept a boat in Gloucester. Still have and use the same set.

If you aren't looking for breathable protection the grundens are as good as any.  If you want something breathable you are gonna spend money.  The Huk suits are very comfortable.

Are they as durable? I love my Muck boots but barely get two years out of them. My son Tommy destroys them in a matter of months.

Breathable suits don't last as long if I had to guess.  My son and I haven't gone thru any of ours, but we take care of them.  I sweat so bad wearing a non- breathable suit I might as well just get wet.  Muck has a new more durable boot I bought this last fall...I have the same problem with them and I'm hoping for more life!

Like a friend of mine says you gotta have 3 boats. One for fishing one to go fast and one for pleasure. Same with bibs you can’t find one to do everything perfectly.

Love my Grundens. I have the medium weight ones and wear them from April - June and then again September-October.

 

Easy on, easy off, comfortable, and waterproof IMG_6547.thumb.JPG.159fe700cc30b98afba008e1857e875f.JPG
