Cool looking coat, but cut a bit short in the torso to keep me warm in cold weather. I also have a pair of insulated bibs I break out when it's brutal cold but no snow. My biggest issue with those is the freeze/thaw that happens getting in and out of the truck all day when there's snow on the ground. The stuff sticks to the cuffs, melts and soaks in, then when I get out at the next stop more sticks to the wet fabric and keeps repeating. By the end of the day I have icecicles up to my thighs. Pretty much why I gave up on anything cotton if it's not bone dry out.
    I wouldn't know anything about that "borrowing" business. 😉

    T shirts are the only clothing I have issues with being long enough in the torso, then I discovered the military surplus store in town sells army PT shirts for $1. Sturdy T shirts that actually fit for $1 apiece is hard to beat.

    I've had similar experience, but my solution for non-insilated overalls was to tuck them into tall topped boots. As a rule I don't wear my insulated overalls when I'm going to be in and out of a vehicle frequently.

      I wear wear for a cold-weather hunting coat my welding blanket cause it's usually very cold in the forest. It gives me sense of freedom on the move. My father told me this secret when we were hunting together. He was a welder, as you can guess. It was a great time when we spend a lot time together and I miss it now very much, especially, when I have to take a hard decision. Before he gave me good advices, but now it became my role - to help my sons. I dream about take them to the hunting and tell all my father's hunting secrets.
