    I always used to rock the hand me downs, old hunting jackets, cheap **** on sale, but I finally got pissed off after I froze my balls off on a wheeling trip a couple weeks ago and decided to treat myself to a Carhartt "Arctic Duck" jacket. Finally found one in 46 tall at the farm store this morning. Best $95 I've ever spent, hands down. :D

    The longest bib I could find this morning was a 32. I need a 34 or a 36...otherwise I woulda bought a set of bibs too.

    I'll need them for snow runs next year when I don't have a cab. :haha:

    I have the Arctic bib and coat. Best money I have ever spent. Extremely tough material, wind has no chance, most importantly the are very warm.

    I'm narrower than you are though. :p:

    I'm about 6'5" tall. The duck coats have a longer cut and I bought a tall on top of that. There's a company in Clarkfield that makes Carhartt knockoff stuff for Gander Mountain and those places and will custom make stuff. I'm gonna go see if they'll make some tall bibs the next time I'm up that way.

    yeah man!! Carhartt is the only way to go.the arctic is the best though.i wash mine once a year,in the spring before i put them up for the year. and i hang dry them to keep the material in them from wadding up.

    I got the jacket and bibs while I was in Wy. Haven't used the bibs for a while, but use the jacket all the time.

    If you have the Arctic, be careful if you're welding in them, they catch easy! :eek1: :doah:

    so true.

    so true
    it came unglued
    from the street that never ends,
    and deeply suspends
    ones mind into a coma
    so rich, just like the aroma,
    of a badass 72
    ridin with the crew.

    Well, I guess I should have said melt instead of catch. But yeah, they burn through quick.
