The weekend before my dad died in May of 1986 he was out in the woods in his Carhartt overalls cutting wood. As was his norm, he removed his Carharts and hung them up in his shop. No one else has ever been big enough to wear my dad's Carharts (he was 6'6") until this past year when my fifteen year old son needed something warm to wear outside to work. He had outgrown his old carharts and I did not have the time to go get him new ones to wear that day. I went to the shop, behind the door were my dad's overalls. My son put them on and still, after twenty-two years, he stayed warm and dry all day. I know my dad was so proud to see my big boy wearing his workclothes!
I bought 3 pairs of these overalls for myself and two sons for deer hunting. The sandstone finish feels broken-in right out of the shipping box. They are well made and very warm. I like the versatility of the overalls, I can take my coat off when the day warms up and not be uncomfortable. Don't be afraid to size up, I am a 38 waist and ordered a 42, if I layer underneath, a 44 would have fit better.
I got the bib overalls for my husband's birthday.He loves them so much he wishes winter would last alot longer. He now has the coat and bib overall in moss green. I'm not sure but I think he would sleep outside just to wear them.
This is the 2nd pair of these bibs I have purchased in 4 years, and with almost daily wear during the winter months that says a lot! The only down side is this is the only pair of bibs that comes in moss.
the bibs are very comfortable and durable. they keep me warm every time I am fishing, outside, or just around the house. they work well when having to spend time crawling under the house with the padding but someday I do plan on buying the extra knee pads. they are very easy to pull on and off with the zippers on the legs. a very tough and durable product.
These Bibs are everything I wanted and more. Very comfortable to work in and best of all keep you warm from the elements. Easy to get on and off. I had to buy mine 2 sizes bigger in the waist and a size longer in length to have enough room. Over all a great buy and great to have during the winter.
The seam in the rear seperated and there is no way to recover the loss after only two weeks of wear. Disappointed and unsatisfied with Carhart and the retailer we made the purchase from. Durability doesn't have a play in the description of these bibs.
