    Rain Defender icon
    Rain Defender®
    Rain Defender®, Durable water repellent—water beads up and rolls off.

    Rain Defender® durable water repellent garments are just as functional and comfortable while fishing, hunting, working, or standing on the sidelines at a football game in a sudden November rain. Water will bead up and roll off your sweatshirt, jacket, overalls, pants, and more, so a little rain won’t stop you from finishing the job without changing your gear.

    Rugged Flex icon
    Rugged Flex®
    Carhartt Rugged Flex® technology moves and stretches with you throughout the day so that whatever you're doing, it's easier to do.

    Rugged Flex® garments must meet the Carhartt's defined standards for stretch, recovery, and durability, so when you put on a Rugged Flex® garment, you know it won't let you down. You'll find Rugged Flex® in shorts, shirts, pants, jackets, and boots because you need gear that helps you move, not gear that holds you back.

    Force Extremes®
    Don’t hit walls, knock them down with our fastest-drying, odor-fighting gear designed to increase comfort and performance


    Force Extremes® increases your comfort in a wider range of conditions, from hot to cold. Stay dry and on the job longer without having to switch out your gear. Fabrics made with 37.5® dry up to five times faster than other fabrics, making this our fastest-drying gear.
    How does it work? 37.5® particles are naturally embedded in the fabric, and will never wash out for the entire lifetime of the garment. The particles don’t just move water around, like traditional wicking does-they evaporate it.
    When you wash your Carhartt Force Extremes® gear, the odors are released into the wash and the technology is refreshed to trap odors all over again during your next workday.

No button hole in the bib
I love these things, very comfortable and hot Weather. My only gripe is that the hammer loop is way too big and my hammer keeps falling out. Also It doesn’t have a button hole in the bib. I really need to button the bib to my shirt

Solid overalls
Whats not to love about Carhartts newest bibs? I have 6 or 7 pairs of Carhartt bibs, these coming in a close second for those rainy days on a job site. My first choice for lighter work will always be the Rigby flex but for anything wet or damp, crawling into crawl spaces these are my go tos. Would love other options in color either grey like the Rigby or Carhartt brown.

Horrible product. Worse customer service
I purchased this product because I work in plumbing. I do a lot of work outside, and have have to deal with wet clothing constantly. Thought these would be good because of the stain and water resistance. In the beginning I loved them. But I only wore them for a week or so (and not daily) and during that time one of the straps broke. I feel that for the cost of this product ($100) that the life of the strap should be a lot longer ( the strap wasn’t even tight on my shoulder).

What I was looking for.
Exactly what I was looking for. Light enough to not swelter in south Texas heat...anymore than normal anyway. Lots of pockets to carry my tools and tough enough for a hard days work.

I like them
Cheap stitching on the top front pocket flaps. Ripped on the first day. Don't know how it happened but it's fixable. Other than that they re perfect for fishing, upland hunting (can fit 2 or 3 boxes of shells easily in the big zipper pocket) & for work if you're always moving or walking around. I wear them around the house. Might buy another pair or 2. Also they seem big at first but after washing they're true to size

stairbuilder on Jan 25, 2018

Are the straps elastic?
David V on Apr 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the straps are elastic (polyester/rubber).
I was thinking about getting these bibs for bowhunting. One of my questions is about how noisy they may or may not be. Anybody checked that out? Do they sound like a rain jacket or are they pretty quiet?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sound like rain jacket. Very comfortable, but to noisy in my option for bow hunting.
I just bought a pair of these and I'm happy with them...are you all going to make more in different colors , for the summer ??? are there any plans to make bib coveralls in the ripstop lightweight material , for the summer ???

Trevor G on Dec 29, 2016

Are the whole bib water resistant or just the pockets?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The entire garment is water repellent.
Do they work for construction work?
A shopper on Sep 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used them daily this spring during calving season and they definitely lived up to my expectations. The reason that I purchased them was the fact that they are water repellent. I would always end up getting soaked in the mornings after a heavy dew and these coveralls certainly made the work a lot more comfortable. They are also very light which makes them nice to wear on hot days.
Would this be the recommended overall for hot and humid climates? I work in many different countries such as Vietnam, Solomon Islands, PNG, Laos etc and am looking for a good work bib overall that breathes well and can dry quickly when rained on.
Also, will these be available in the more traditional brown/ tan color? Thank you.
A shopper on Sep 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This style is ideal for hot/humid climates. They are lightweight, feature our Fastest Drying technology and they are also odor fighting. We apologize it is only offered in Coffee at this time.
Do the double knees accommodate knee pads?
Nathan T on Jul 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The double knees do have very small openings (roughly 2-2.5") at the bottom for cleaning purposes. Some of our customers do choose to insert Soft Knees knee pads into that area, though the openings were not expressly made for that purpose.
Do these have the double knee?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do just like all carhartt bibs own right down to drain opening in the middle of bottom 1"wide. However it is the light weight material. Lov em I really like the Velcro chest pockets no more things falling out or filling with grass or hay, that comes out mostly in the wash.??
What is the source of this product?
Anna C Staff on Jun 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This product is imported.
