Best pair of coverall ever, got my first pair in Wyoming (8 yrs ago) and still wear them. Easy to get in and out of them, plenty of pockets and plenty of leg room to get up and down on the equipment I work on. I get mine about a inch shorter on the inseam and about two sizes bigger in the waist to fit comfortably.
I work construction and had gone through 1 pair of overalls every year. Then about 10 years ago my dad told me to get these. Well they were the last ones I bought. Like an old teddy bear they show there years and have there scars. But a little TLC from grandma every spring, they were mended. But by far the best I've ever owned or seen owned by many. About time I should be getting an upgrade but every winter I pull them out and say, "We can make it 1 more winter." Love these coveralls!!!!
I got these bibs for work last fall. This past winter I truly put this to test. I'm a maintenance supervisor who works nights. Last winter, we had a heating unit on the roof go out during the coldest week of the year. We were on the roof in -10*F temperature and the wind was brutal. This in combination with the Carhartt C26 jacket, and I could literally have been up there all night. It was like being in my own little tent where I was completely invincible to my frigid environment. I was so impressed that I bought the R54 bibs to use in the treestand. These come HIGHLY recommended from myself as well as my mechanics.
working outside isn't a problem with these bibs... they really keep the elements out, that's a bonus here in the Rocky Mountains... they did take an outing or two to break them in and make them comfortable like i like.
I have had my bib overalls for 14 years. All the zippers and snaps still work. No holes in the pockets. A little wear on the knees and pants cuffs, that's it! I work construction as a plumber and I am also a farmer/horse breeder. Some days I wear them from dawn to dusk, Carhartt's are the best!
Almost everyone in our household has some Carhartt bib overalls and a coat or two to go along with them. These are also great for deer hunting in. They keep my dad and I warm when we are out on a hunt. The pouches hold everything you could ever need on a hunt and the deep pockets are great to keep your hands warm!!
This product is outstanding. Very tough material and lots of insulation. Extremely well made with heavy duty zippers and plenty of pockets. Zippers that zip all the way up the leg and will snap adjust at the ankle for the fit you want. Very warm and I would and have already recommended these bibs to friends and fellow workers. Ron
I purchased this for my husband who is a contractor since he works outdoors quite a bit. These bibs could not be better as far as protection from the elements and cold. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a warm and comfortable bib.
I have bought carhartt arctic insulted bibs for the past 15 years. I work on a drilling rig and there is nothing that compares to these. I have tried others when i first started drilling 18 years ago, I tried a pair of carhartt insulated bibs and have never bought anything else since. I stand in -20 degree temps and the wind blowing, nothing stops the wind like these. I just can't say enough about these, once you buy a pair of these you won't settle for anything else. Keep up the great products Carhartt.
I've been buying Carhartt stuff for well over 15 years because it is the only product that keeps me warm in the winter. I'm outside a lot and needed warm, comfortable clothing. On the coldest days, with the wind blowing, my legs were kept warm. Coupled with the Arctic Jacket, I was kept warm all day! The multiple pockets are very useful for all sorts of things including a cell phone. These will last forever. Well-made and rugged styling!
Bought these after the wife bought me the arctic lined jacket. Very good match. I never get cold and the seem to be water/snow repellant. I use these mainly for work. I guess I could say I am hard on them, laying on the ground, snow and what ever is under me. Had them 3 years so far and little to no signs of wear.
I purchased these overalls for the purpose of staying warm during subzero Chicago Bears football games. They do a great job of keeping me warm. The only down side, if I had to list one, is that they are a little stiff at first and need to be worn in before they are comfortable to sit in for 3 hours of a losing football team's game.
I live in Michigan and our winters can be pretty cold. My legs would be red and numb prior to buying and using the overalls. To be able to work and not worry about the cold is priceless. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who works outside for more than an hour in cold weather. Keep in mind that you need to add 2-3 sizes up from your normal size due to wearing clothing underneath.
I can't say enough good things about these bibs. I work outside on 12 hour shifts in Canadian winter with ease with only wearing a pair of sweats underneath. I swear they are windproof, and takes hours before the snow soaks through them.
I have bought other brands and none have stood up to Carhartts, and I am hard on my gear. Grease, diesel, sparks, nothing has damaged them and when I finally did put holes in them with battery acid, Carhartt sent patches to my house free of charge! I have yet to see a company that will take this kind of abuse and still stand behing their product.
I am head of a maintenance crew for a mall in Troy, MI and Carhartts are all we buy for our winter clothing. Buying for 20+ workers, we know how durable carhartts are. Time and time again our bibs overalls, jackets and coats have seen us thru some of michigans worst winter weather. Keep up the good work!
This is my 4th carharrt purchase, first from this website, and I am always pleased with the product. I don't think it is possible to wear out a carharrt!! The arctic lined bibs we just bought are unbelievably warm, and built to last, it is obvious that quality still counts . I would never even consider buying another brand! Very rugged and designed with working people in mind. Love them.
I've worn Carhartt bibs for over 7 years now, and I'm just now buying my 2nd pair. I probably should bought them a year ago, given the shape of my old ones. Anyway, I think Carhartt is the better choice for outerwear, they are durable and of a higher quality than some of the other brands. They are a bit stiff at first, but within 2-3 weeks they loosen up.
Classic quality and craftsmanship from carhartt. Problem is that the top bib area is unlined and the zippers exist from waist down only and not from top of bib to waist. Even with the sizing changes fit was the same on my husband odering a 38/32 inseam over the 38/34 outter leg seam as was the previous garment sizing my husband ordered in years past. We returned due to above mentioned cons and the return shipping cost from CO was $16.00. Not buying online again as we live near enough to Carhartt supplier's and I dont want to pay $16.00 to try on bibs. Please make a mans bib that protects my husband from constant exposure to Mountainous Winter elements during his 12 hour shifts and yet is still machine washable? Thank you for the quality and stylish products you offer. -CMD
i have ownd these pairs of bibs for 4 years now and the only wear on them is a extreamly small hole that i made crossing over a barb wire fence that has yet to tear any more. these bibs are the warmest pair of bibs i have ever worn and the keep me warm on the coldest winter days when im out ice fishing or working around the house outside. Liveing in northren wisconsin the winters get pretty harsh. they are extreamyl compfy and i can move almost as if i was just wearing jeans . the zippers along the sides make it easy to slip on and off over boots. I love these bibs and refuse to wear or buy anything else IF these happen to EVER wear out.
