Boys Stormer Snow Bibs
Good fabric, good fit
The pants fit well, good fabric, easy to put on. Haven't yet passed the test of time, as winter is just starting, but they look like they will last well.

Zipper would constantly get stuck in the fabric
The pants were made well except for the zipper. Every time my son, age 7 zipped them up or down they would get stuck on the fabric on the sides of the zipper. We struggled with them for a week then I cut off all that extra fabric, now the zipper works as it should. Of course they look terrible but at least my son isn't getting stuck in them at school!

My 10 year old grew out of lands end regular size 8 snow bib. He is 54 inches and 83 pounds. One review indicated this bib is long and narrow. Although he normally wears regular sizes, I ordered husky 10 in stomer bib. It is perfect with a little bit of room. We are not sure whether we will be able to use it next year, but it seems perfect for this year.

Trying to prepare for our one or two snow/ice days and have loved a smaller one of these I bought for one child, so I ordered one for the other. I order big so they can wear more than one year since we don't have many occasions to use it. But it keeps them dry and lets them play without freezing!

My 13-year old son loves the orange color and the fit is just right. The water resistant fabric will be great for our Juneau, AK winters.

The snow pants are fine, just the color orange has a funky lining color and not really any colors that match the green coat it is pictured with.
I really think the orange snow pants were ones left over from a previous season when they were paired with girls snow jacket. It does not go with the green stormer jacket.

Good fit for tall thin boy
I disagree with the other reviewers. After trying several other types of pants elsewhere these were a great fit for my tall, skinny 8 year old boy. I purchased the size 10 and they seem similar in length to his size 10 pants. The waist cinches in. My son loves them and has already worn them a few times with good results.

bib pants way too long and not wide enough with clothes
I believe I am reiterating what other moms have said..why is it if you order a husky item the length goes crazy long..? My child is 8 1/2 and husky and we only buy LE clothing for him but get real with the length of things..we ordered him the husky bib pants stormers and they didn't have enough room with clothes on..too tight across the chest area for moving around..by the way if LE does free hemming why can't these also be offered with that option..? just a thought..

Recommend with Many Reservations
My son is nine. He has always been tall and thin, wearing much larger pants for length and cinching the waist in as far as it could go. (Right now he's in size 14.) I've always bought the waterproof snowbibs and they have always been strangely long...but workable. This year we've returned four pairs of the waterproof bibs. They were ~6-7" too long. That's ridiculous for a boy who has always been off the charts in height his entire life! If they are too long for my son, who do they possibly fit?! We then tried the Stormer Snow Bibs on in the store. They seem to be a little bit shorter in the leg, but still too long for good fit (3" too long) . They are much lighter -- a plus or minus depending on how you intend to use them. If one is stuffing them into a backpack each day to bring to school, these are certainly less bulky than the waterproof bibs and therefore a good choice. If your kid will be out all day in the snow, possibly not (we've yet to see). I do have a problem with the overall look of the Stormers. By the time my thin son puts on suitably warm undergarments, he looks like he is obese and has a pear shape. With the waterproof bibs, he simply has the stiff boxy look of a Lego figure. Neither a good look for the 4th grade. I ended up buying one pair of the Stormers at the store simply because I've never shopped anywhere besides Lands End and wanted a backup option. The Stormers are not ideal but they are better this year for us than the waterproof bibs simply because of the shorter leg. Since there is no way I'm going to pay to get snow bibs hemmed, I'll keep looking at what other stores have to offer. The LE designers need to get real boys, put them in pants and layers of shirts and also boots. A total redesign is needed for both the waterproof and the stormer bibs. -- One last thought, please don't read the "fits big" and think they are plenty roomy elsewhere. They are not. They are barely large enough in the waist and too long in the legs. Perhaps with the strange cut, everyone should go to a smaller size but get husky? Or LE could just get the fit right.

I'm not sure about these snowpants?
Well it's a long story but here I go. A few years ago I had no trouble with the snowpants. I always got the Husky in my sons size and they were perfect. Last winter (2013) I purchased about 3 or 4 different pairs and all of them were too small not to mention too long as the sizes went up. My son is 11 now and though he has a few extra pounds on, he certainly is not obese. So by the time I figured out he would need a 16 Husky, they LandsEnd was sold out in the color I needed. This Winter (2014) I got the 16 Husky in the Black Stormers Bibsnowpants. I have taken them to the tailors for hemming.. I will enclose a picture so you can see my son is not obese. I really wish LandsEnd would talk with the makers as I know it is the same as last year and get an accurate sizing for a Husky child.
