Do the pants or bibs have a two way fly? The reason I ask, I have a pair of Point 5 Pants, which are next to useless when wearing harness, since fly only pulls down. A very poor design in my opinion.....

Stuart

Hi Stuart, I asked The North Face your question and there's a two way fly on the men's versions but not the women's.
