    Have a pair of Columbia upland BriarShun bibs that after 8 years of duck, pheasant and deer drives are starting to come apart. Awesome waterproof bibs I wore over Carhartts.

    Not really keen on the wax coated cotton bibs like Filson. Pricey and from what I have heard can't be washed in a machine. Any thoughts on BriarBusters nylon bibs? Sound pretty good but company shut down website and don't answer the phone. Bowning PF bibs are not waterproof but spraying repellant on them help? Brownings are listed by a number of vendors but don't list inseam for size med. I would like a replacement pair in the closet. Any suggestions?

    Thank you,
    Len

    Depends on how much you are going to be walking.

    You are a better man than I am if you are going to wear Caharts and then chaps over them

    My vote is for the lightest bibs you can find ( if you have to wear bibs- and there are some advantages- I have two pair) and then either wax or cordora chaps

    the wax chaps can be washed but why would you want to? do you wash your other chaps? If you wash them- cool water- and air dry and then re melt wax in= which is an easy deal

    Oh it also depends on your age and condition- as I get older I kind of want lighter boots but good support and I want lighter pants/bibs etc

    If there arent any briars in your area you dont even need chaps

    Even lighter than bibs or course are pants- and you can use suspenders on pants also

    regards from Iowa

    Thanks for reply Gene and Lee. My 40 borders public land here in south east Wisconsin. Surrounded by marsh plus pretty heavy with brush, burdocks and stickers. In early bird season I get home from work (prior to daylight saving time) and find it quick to throw bibs over work pants and get out the door quickly with dogs for the 2 min rooster drill. Bibs just seem to be a practical choice for me plus I don't have much of an ass to keep the pants up marching thru the stuff.
