Default Klim Keweenaw Bibs

Ordered Vector pants in size L... didn't like the weight and design of the pants. So I ordered Keweenaw bibs in size L based on the size chart provided by Klim.

Like them a lot better, but are just too tight through my hips and waist... may be a tad short as well.

Found out I was sold last year's model (at this year's price!) Needless to say they're going back.

Does anyone know if this year's style is sized the same? I hate to order something again (XL version of this year) only to return it. Nearest Klim dealer is 2+ hours away.

I'm 6'1", 215 lbs. Wear 36x32 Levis... waist measures 41", hips 43".

When I bought bibs a couple years ago, I tried on several styles and sizes from Klim at the snow show. None of them fit me right. Made me a firm believer to never trust what they publish about their sizes. If mail order is your only option, I hope you are able to find what works for you. Best of luck!

Why not order the L and the XL and return the one(s) you don't like.

I would pm and order from HCS vendor Culater. Len knows all the sizing line and uses it himself. My friend who is a dealer that has Klim told me that changes were made to Keweenaw line in 2017 sizing to be more true to size. Len can confirm that for you. He's a well informed vendor and has stickies pinned on Klim.

Thanks... I called Klim. Their customer service said the didn't make any changes to the Keweenaw sizing - just the styling.

I may just order both and return one.

culater says that is not the case... 2017 is sized larger.

I sent him a PM. Does he have a website or phone number?
