    Question both

    I prefer pants when I'm on a backpack sheep or goat hunt because they are lighter. And cooler than bibs.

    I prefer bibs while rafting, actice yet bent (sitting) while on the oars. While wearing the pants when rafting during a driving hard rain storm, which can be miserable cold anyway, the jacket can sorta ride up and rain water will migrate or wick from your belt line to your toes. That will not happen with the bibs.

    I pefer bibs while fleshing brown bear pelts, so I can keep bear junk/fat/fluids off my pants and shirt. Easier to sleep if I don't smell like a bear.

    I prefer, I think...both.

    I just went with the pants because they will probably spend a good amount of time in the pack due to the length of the guide jacket and my constant use of lacrosse hippers. I figure....while in the boat, the guide jacket hangs down beyond my hip boots.

    If out hunting and I plan on staying in one place for a long time, i.e. doing some serious sitting to use optics, I prefer the bibs. Easier to lay back and keep my butt dry. They are great in high brush drowning in rain water...down side is they are hotter when walking, but I can always take the top down and tie it around my waist. Bibs for me.
