Race Face Stash Bib Shorts help you shed the hydration pack, since you don't always need it, but you always need spots to carry items in a secure and central location. This bib extended item gives you a tank, a liner, and a bib, plus pockets to take along things such as a bladder, spare tubes, tools, a pump and/or inflator, snacks, and what-have-you.

MEH: first thought was "this is going to be warm". I can't say for sure as I never actually rode them. but they could do well with lighter, more ventilated materials in strategic areas. hydration pouch - liked the idea but 1. pulling on the shorts OR dropping them (bathroom break) with full bladder installed is a bit awkward. 2. hose routes through the shoulder strap (similar to a camelback) which buries the mouthpiece under your jersey against your chest. No worries if you go jersey-less, or wear this over a shirt, but that's not my cup of tea. So, for me the hydro pouch is not useful AND creates multiple layers of full-back coverage (warm). it could however, simply be used as another pocket for stuff you don't often need, e.g. (hopefully) a tube/CO2. but be aware you won't get into the pocket without removing the top of the bibs, or having a friend reach in.
RIDE IMPRESSION: NONE (FIT) I'm 5'10", 175lbs "athletic" build, a size Large in almost everything. This Large was way too small for me. The shorts fit OK, a little snug, but the straps were at least 2", perhaps 3" too short which pulled "everything" high and tight (if you get my meaning). I haven't decided if I'll try the XL, or just go with another pair of Specialized SWAT, which I already have and give 5 stars...
in summary, well built and clever idea, but be aware it may not be optimal for the way most of us dress for a trail ride.
The RaceFace Stash Bib is true to its name and provides so many wonderful areas to store items. This bib is perfect for those days you want to go on a shorter ride but need to bring water and a few other small items. I would definitely recommend this bib.
Awesome. Keeps my pack at home but necessities with me.
I have two pairs of these. I do not use the hydration pouch but have found I can easily carry a shock and regular pump (small), a ziplock bag with rescue essentials (zip ties, back up CO2, chain link, multi tool, and some cash/ID), some shotblocks,an extra 750ml water bottle in the pockets. Every now and then a spare tube. I do use a race strap to carry a tube/tool/co2 on the bike for <1 hour rips.
These have essentially kept my pack at home on all but proper 2+ hour big backcountry rides.
