    Hey, I was looking at a post earlier and found some sites to a brand named "Carhartt" So I looked around and found some things I liked, has anyone used there clothing before? I was thinking about getting a lined jacket and lined pants for working outside in the winter since I don't have a garage. There prices in american are about equal for what I buy my "name brand" clothing for so it seems like a good deal. So what do you think about them? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Carhartts are the shiznit! I have a saddle blanket lined jacket that I wear to work every day and it is holding up like a champ. I really like the different styles, too. I go through a pair of the overalls each year, butthey take a LOT of abuse. I am an industrial electrician and spend lots of time crawling around, climbing, and other type duty that would kill a pair of jeans in a month. My bro lives in Oregon and has all the quilted stuff. Coveralls, pants, coat. He loves 'em too. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Only thing I allow my husband to roll around in the dirt with. He has had a pair of insulated coveralls for 4 or 5 years and hasn't destroyed them yet, sweats his raisins off even in cold weather /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I am getting a pair of overalls for 4 wheeling pretty soon, they aren't cheap but worth every dime. I have a coat I have worn very thin that is insulated, best $40 I ever spent.

    Sears has 1/2 price sales a few times a year on all their Carhart stuff.

    They are worth every penny at full price, but at half price you can get two! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Carhartt pretty well kick ass... though for a few bucks less I have seen "Sorel" clothing too... I have a pair of both and the Sorel seem to wear like the carhartt's but then again, carhartt will go the long-haul... so, its looking like a longevity competition is in order.

    Oh, one of the really cool things about carhartt's (and Sorel for that matter) is that the double front jeans have felt pads you can insert into them to help keep your thighs and knees safer.

    I've got one of the jackets and can only wear it about a week out of the year. Best and toughest work clothes made. Carhartt to a man is like diamonds to women.
