    Got my first Carhart jacket for this past winter. It was a gift, as I generally refuse to spend that much money on myself (unless it's for my car). Definitely worth the money! The jacket survived an entire winter season of steel and pipe hauling without a single mark, is warm, and does an excellent job of stopping the wind and rain. They may be a bit pricey, but they are worth every penny. I'm adding the bib coveralls for next winter.

    I try not to spend too much money myself especially for "some" work clothing. I have not too much good luck when working around the load, trailer or tractor. Something always catches my clothing, and ripping it. So as a result, I buy not cheap, but inexpensive outer wear. I generally buy from Wear Guard a uniform specialty company, near me.

    Then if I get a tear in the clothing, a simple trip to the tailor, and he sews it up. I wish I could have bought the Carhatt brand, but with my luck? I'd be ticked off at the first tear, like I'd be ticked off at the first scratch on a brand new car!

    Trust me, get a Carhart. Like I said, an entire season of steel (which rips through clothing) and pipe. Just make sure the jacket fits properly, not a lot of loose material. They are made out of heavy canvas with lining, and very tear resistant. I had a Dickie (similar to the Carhart, but not the same) that got shredded in its first year. The Carhart is still like new, and ready to go for next winter.
