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: Homesteader, Location: Western Great Lakes Region, Occupation: homesteader Great insulated overalls! These overalls are the real deal. They're warm, comfortable when working outside in the cold and very durable. Thanks, Dungarees and thanks Carhartt!
Reviewer: CarharttKidTexas, Location: Fort Worth, Texas, Occupation: security The absolute best you can get. Full on battle armor. The arctic quilt overalls are the centerpiece in all the Carhartt gear I own. When you absolutely have to depend on your clothes to protect against the elements this overall is it. Warm enough to ride a motorcycle in 18 degree weather. Blocks chilling wind. Waterproof to a point. Highest quality to last. What you wear to an emergency car problem with solid ice on the ground in the middle of the night. Or just work a post with a lot of outside exposure. Buy these about 2 in. larger than your belt size. Not inexpensive but the first time you have to REALLY depend on them you'll wonder how they sell them so cheap.
