The North Face Anchor Bib 2015 Review by A Better Ski

The North Face Anchor Bib is a really good bib at a relatively budget friendly price. It’s built with The North Face Hyvent PU coating that offers solid waterproofing and okay breathability. It’s a great option for backcountry skiers, or resort powder skiers who need the extra protection from the snow.

The North Face Anchor Bib In Studio Review – Fit and Feel

Jacket Size – S
Matt’s Specs:
Specs: 5’10”, 155 lb – Normal Build, Broad Shoulders, Moderate Arm Length, Skinny Torso – Narrow Waist, Larger Thighs and Butt, Short Legs
Upper Body: 34.5” Chest, Torso Length 23” (collar bone to pant button), Shoulder Width Approx 22”, Arm Length 18.5” (pit to wrist)
Lower Body: 30” Waist, 38” Hips, 30” Inseam, 22” Thigh
Turn On’s: Active fit jackets that fit well around my chest and torso, but don’t restrict movement. Size S Pants that have a bit more room in my thighs, that way I can actually use my pockets. And of course getting first chair with 12” of fresh powder on the mountain.
Turn Off’s: Size S Jackets that are too tight, and Size M jackets that are too loose in the waist. I really don’t like a loose waist that can allow cold air in, and I don’t like having to cinch down the waist. I also don’t like jackets that ride up when I’m skiing, The jacket should stay in place. Pants that fit too tight in the thigh, and I can’t use my pockets.
