The price is actually reduced, it does not sell well, I find it too long, like a coat. Useful if you are standing behind the wheel long hours, or watching kids soccer game in pouring rain. I bought the Ægir Racing, normal waist lenght. It will hopefully last me several years, so the price/year should be OK. I sail and race in chilly Scandinavian waters, and se no fun in being cold and miserable.

I've got the bibs luckily not a retail price and must say they are the best pair I have ever used.  I'm actually going to sell me HPX as they are that good.  There are a ton of well though out features I haven't seen except in Guy Cotten sailing gear such as rubber knees and butt.  They are definitely warmer than something like LPX or MPX but they are bullet proof.  I also second the comment about the race jacket over the one you have shown, with great bibs you don't been all that overlap.

Yes, for cold climates, super wet boats and hard wearing they can't be beat.  I use them double handing 30 footers, class 40s and super wet sport boats.  Add a dry top and the only water inside is your sweat.  Things like built in knee pads, a mesh pocket and standard pock on the legs work great.  If you are interested in a pair of size xl HPX bibs used maybe 5 times let me know.  I originally for the aegir to replace my MPX but the cover the spectrum for me
