    Looking for advise on the best snow goose bibs while laying out in a spread.
    Mainly looking for a non insulated rubber type for muddy conditions and will layer underneath based on weather conditions.

    I got the Grundens Clipper 2 I think. They are amazing in the mud and lasted about 40 hunts. Powerwashed them at the end of the season and they look about new. My only complaint is that they do not breathe at all. If you have work to do first thing in the morning, do it, then cool off and then put them on. A lot of days after straightening decoys, my legs were drenched.

    Helly Hansen makes some too. Or, you could buy the extremely overpriced Habitat Flats ones that have their logo on it.

    Will the shoreman’s Last longer than the clipper 2’s? Looking for bibs that are the right color and will last. Is 40 hunts normal for bibs?

    I don’t know how many hunts mine have but I’ve had my HellyHansen bibs for at least 5 seasons.

    My clippers have lasted me three seasons so far with no issues. Only about 15 hunts a year. They do not breathe the best, but I dress accordingly. I'd buy them a gain.

    I also bought some of the MPW whites. Cheaper material but they work. Bought as a top cover.

    I also own a pair of wildfowler top and bottoms, very warm, comfortable, but when it is muddy or raining, the grundens come out.

    In very cold weather the fishing bibs get stiff. I like wildfowler type or other fabric based whites in cold conditions.
