Default New Threads to stay Dry

I have been kinda old school and stingy for the past decade and then took some time off from riding for the past few years.
Back on my sled yesterday for the first time in 5years, epic powder, one of those in your face days, was awesome welcome back!
Historically, I usually wear mountain hardwear pants or the like. But yesterday, they were soaked and I froze if I stopped for too long.
What do y'all think about Klim alpine bibs for women? Any other suggestions? sizing advice- I'm tall, 5'9, 155lbs.
Thanks!

I've switched over to Klim and have been very happy, so nice to be dry all day! Wearing the Alpine pants and really like them. They do come in talls and sizing runs pretty true.

I have a pair of the Alpine Bibs. They are nice and they stay dry but potty breaks suck! I switched to the Men's Free Ride pant because I like just the larger legs (I wear custom knee braces from 2 ACL replacements) and they have more room, easier maneuverability. This years model may be called the POWERXROSS PANT. You can chat with someone on Klim's site to be sure.

My wife has two pairs of Klim bibs-- insulated and non-insulated.

Loves them both. Both have a trap door for natures call.
