Reviewer: carwasher, Location: Kansas, Occupation: cog in the wheel easy on the back and shoulders I have to wear overalls for at least 8 hrs a day working and walking outside at night most of that time. Climbing up and down,in and out of trucks as well.
There may be warmer overalls more deserving of the artic label but they'll be a lot heavier. That weight takes it's toll on you by the end of a work week.
That's where I fell in love with the carhartt extremes. They provide adequate warmth and feel a lot lighter than the traditional canvas insulated overalls. They also seem superior in both wind and rain protection. After starting to wear these back and shoulder pain isn't a problem. And these kept me comfortably warm with layering in windy 15-20 degree nights.
I'd say they run true to size. If you don't want them baggy order the size you wear regularly. A size up seems adequate for wearing heavy layering underneath. Just depends on if you like baggy or tight,long or short.

Reviewer: CD33, Location: Idaho, Occupation: Freezer forklift driver carhartt quality and warmth I have have bought so many pairs of these! I work in a freezer driving a forklift, so with a wind chill of -15 these far exceeded the "freezer gear" provided to us by the company. The quality is excellent including zippers, snaps, , material used and stitching. Durability is outstanding.
Reviewer: Knights55, Location: Georgia, Occupation: Principal Coveralls I stand in the front of our school to monitor students as they exit cars in the morning. At times, the temperatures are in the teens, but it hasn't mattered since I purchased these coveralls.
Reviewer: BigDaddyD3ATH, Location: Missouri, Occupation: Stay at home dad Proud owner Getting cold is never fun. With these bibs I've yet to be cold. Single digits & high windchill are no match for these bibs. If you work outside during winter I highly recommend these! The quality of this product is outstanding!
