Looking for a new set of bibs, Suggestions?

Looking to replace my aging pair of bibs.

Last year I purchased a set of Cabelas dry plus in a Mossy oak pattern that matched my jacket. There was a defect in the manufacturing and I returned them to the store. At the time of the return they had no replacements in stock or online. I decided I would wait until the following year as it was the end of the season anyway.

Now it seems all they have is their own zonze pattern, or whatever you call it. I tried their large in the store last weekend and it was a tad tighter than I wanted (I blame the beer!) The extra large is just way too big and I felt like I was swimming in it. I wasn't happy with them and decided to pass on the purchase.

I'm looking for something that is water proof, insulated and with full length or at least hip length zippers. Something I can wear a base layer under in the late season or something I can wear in Nov/Dec w/o sweating too much.

I've been checking online but I'm not a huge fan of buying something I can't try on.

Does anyone have any recommendations on a pair they have had good luck with? I plan on keeping these for a number of years and don't mind spending money but would like to keep it under $250.00

I have a couple different pairs of Guide Series bibs from Gander Mountain. Love them. Very reasonable cost, warm, waterproof, and durable.

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.
