The Military Surplus Polartec Fleece Bibs are an integral part of the Special Operations Personal Equipment Advanced Requirement (SPEAR) Cold Weather System . The 200 weight polartec material is extremely lightweight and very high loft. Originally designed for the military, the SPEAR Bibs have several features that make them an excellent choice for hunters, hikers, and general outdoorsmen.
The bibs are made from genuine US Made Polartec 200 weight material that makes them perfect for use as a middle or base layer. The 200 weight polartec is extremely soft, making it great for next-to-skin wear. Another benefit to the material is that it is extremely high loft, meaning it traps warm air when paired with an outer layer. The SPEAR bibs feature full-length side zippers and are cut short; they come to just below the knee. This is done in order to facilitate easy use when wearing boots and to allow venting which keeps wearers from over-heating. The elastic suspenders are sewn in and utilize ITW polymer quick-release hardware which makes for quick and easy on and off, very important in extreme conditions.
