Can't Beat Carhartt

Updated on January 5, 2012

For those of you who have spent any time working outside in cold weather, you know it can be downright miserable. For this, I have one solution: Carhartt. Their clothing has a reputation already, and there is good reason for it; they live up to that reputation. I have spent many hours in the rain, cold, and snow, and I wouldn’t choose any other clothing to keep me warm and dry.

Some people would take a look at the price of some Carhatt products and immediately be detoured. Their initial reaction would be to not want to pay such a large amount for work clothes. However, the price you pay for Carhartt products is well worth it.

Let’s take a look at quality for starters. For several years, I worked for my city’s street department. This job included exposure to dirt, tar, asphalt, concrete, leaves, salt, and numerous other substances that are extremely hard on clothing. They eat through the material of most work clothes. However, Carhartt clothing holds up very well. They were able to take the abuse from the substances they were exposed to during work and also the chemicals required to clean them. It does not wear out at such a rapid rate as most other clothing does.

As I referenced earlier, Carhartt clothing can be relied upon to keep you warm. If you work outside consistently in cold weather, this is extremely important. There is nothing more miserable than being stuck outside in the cold for hours on end without adequate attire. Carhartt makes a variety of sweatshirts. They come in multiple styles and weights. I have never had a warmer sweatshirt than a Carhartt heavyweight hoodie. If you combine that with a pair of Carhartt bibs, you will be nice and cozy working outside on a cold day. Just the other day, I spent six hours straight outside working in a rain/snow mix. When I took off my bibs at the end of the day, I was completely dry still, and I was never cold during the time I was outside.

Now, this isn’t really meant to be some sort of advertisement for Carhartt. I am simply making a suggestion to people who need clothes to keep them warm while working outside. I have personally had excellent success with Carhartt, and I would recommend it to anyone. The price may seem a little steep at first, but there are always outlet stores and clearance places. The value of any Carhartt item lives up to the price you might pay.

      @Stone - Thanks. It really is incredible stuff and well worth the cost. It's great for wearing to work or just comfortable to relax in.

      I bought my fiance a Carhartt coat and hat for Christmas last year and he LOVES it! The material is so durable and keeps him warm when he is outdoors. I live in WI and winter can be brutal here. Good hub, voted up and useful!
