After the video last week, I was asked about what the kids were wearing to keep warm while working outside. I replied that the coats and coveralls were Carhartt. The boots were sorel. Quality certainly matters when working out in freezing temperatures for hours. I am as frugal as the next mom. But won’t balk at paying for good work clothes that will last. So in this infomercial I’ll break down the winter wear items with this picture of Theo, who is a frigid farmer.
Everyone of us on this farm has at least one Carhartt jacket. They are sturdy and warm, made of canvas with quilted lining. If you go to any farm sale or show, you think you signed up for a carhartt convention. Farmers are cheap but most will put up the money for quality. The kids like the elastic waist but I prefer the adjustable.
The quilted lining is a must for winter. The material for the Carhartt Overalls
or coveralls is the same as the coats. Do not order the length too long. If the pants drag the ground the will wick the moisture and become ratty. The zips up the sides of the legs are great for putting your boots on. Also order a size or two larger than your normal size to accommodate for a pair of jeans underneath.
These boots are rated -25 deg. So they’ll do the job of keeping toes from turning blue. Sorel Winter Boots are excellent quality. They are good on slick surfaces also.
For sale at the right price.
