    Last winter I bought a really nice insulated hooded canvas jacket from Menards for $40 that is every bit comparable to my Carhart I left back in Florida.

    Tractor Farm supply had fleese lined insulated jeans for $25 each that wear like iron and are actually almost too warm to wear on less than freezing days.

    Good insulated socks and good insulated boots if you are going to be doing flatbed like I was going to be doing.



    Hauling milk in a tanker now, I can pretty much wear shorts and flip flops for how little I am out of the truck.

    From my experience last year, I'm gonna suggest avoiding Thinsulate related products.

    I tried Thinsulate lined gloves and think made by Swiss Gear. The bummer is that while they were nice and warm and comfortable, but if you sweat while working with them on it will just hold that stinky smell and it didn't come out after trying different washes.

    I didn't even have that much trouble with my boots.

    Wish I saw this last year.

    Wound up trying different things from Walmart or Dunhams in town and wearing several base layers going into January.

    Watch the videos. 0 degrees going for a poker plunge and warm within 3 minutes out of water. Worth the money.

    You don't need to spend much money .
    Step 1 Put on and extra layer
    Step 2 -If still cold repeat step 1

    Seriously save your money , extra layers works better than anything . Find a coat that that you can move around in .

    Get extra wide boots and just double or triple your socks if your going to be standing in snow .
