The Roadcrafter bib attachment is for using the pants with a different jacket. If you have the Roadcrafter jacket, the bib is pointless.

As for wanting a bib, well if I crashed my bike as much as I fall down skiing or snowboarding then I might want bibs. Fortunately, that's not the case, and I've never felt the need for a bib while riding.

It's pure luxury compared to wearing a one-piece suit. Once you've stripped down for the bodily function, where do you put the top so it doesn't drag on the not-so-clean floor?

I think cycloak was the only company to ever make a true MC bib. I also wore the Carhartt Arctic Extreme bib for a while before swapping to the one piece Arctic Extreme suit.

It's 100% 1000 denier Cordura, thats twice as thick as a stich for 10% of the price and is WELL insulated. It's great for sub 20 degree weather. I need to get another one, my size 42R is small....

That's what I have and love them. Thick and durable and a bit heavy but went out in low 30's with no problems and just had regular jenas under them. In the summer they won't work but will look into an unlined pair. Always wore leathers so peobably going to stick with them.
