Guys, anyone have any experience having their 100mph bibs altered/shortened? I’m 5’7” , wear a large, but the bibs are way too long.

Not that specific brand but have had pants/bibs altered at a local (and reputable) alterations shop. Ask around in your area especially where material is sold. Somebody knows sombody who does a good job. I'm 5'8" but the 8 is my legs so I feel ya. cool

Same for me 5’8”. My concern is the velcro straps, in getting everything right and putting new stitching in the gortex. So I have just bunched and strapped on the top of each foot and just pulled them up all day.

I have an older set of Cabelas Guidewear, you could by them in “short” “regular” or “long”. I’m right in between short or regular at 5’9”.

I would love to find a "short" rain suit...I'm 5'6" and have issues with this very thing.

Maybe I could get a kick starter together to create a vertically challenged rain / hunting apparel company.

I would just buy some pants that fit, I have bought the bibbs for my 100mph suit and my qualifier bps suit which is lighter, the qualifier has no front zipper wtf...,

I dont like the bibs for the most part and carry some black rain pants in my boat instead.

iron on patches, cut in half, turn bibs inside out, fold legs back to length you want and use iron on to fasten to inner leg liner. use a damp towel over the iron ons and liner to keep it from getting too hot.

not the best but is the easiest and can be undone easy enough if needed.

I don't like bibs either so I got a pair of Columbia goretex pants and love them. I wear jeans under them and stay dry and warm.

Coachmas, That is exactly what I’m wearing now, but will need to replace eventually.

Youll need to get the legs cut off above the zippers and sewn back on any seamstress can do it.
