Our last winter was quite severe, with temperatures dropping in the low 10s and even near freezing point for a long stretch of days. The snow kept piling in our front yard, and for more mornings that I can remember, I had to stay outside shoveling snow so I could get my driveway free so that I could drive my kids to school.
What made the situation even worse, was that I had nothing heavy in terms of clothing to wear. To be honest, that was all my fault and I had my habit of procrastinating things to blame!
My wife kept telling me all through the whole sales season before winter to go to a store to buy myself a nice, warm coverall, but I kept putting it off thinking that winter was too distant in the future to care about!
Now in hindsight, I see how wrong I was. I immediately have to go look for one of those nice looking insulated coveralls for men that I see in shops and online.
As for what features I should go after, they should be definitely warm, have lots of easy to reach big pockets, rugged and most important of all, they should fit nicely over any type of clothing I will be wearing underneath, so it will be easy to move around and sit or bend.
And it should also be easy to get in or out of it and the zippers should be robust and top quality, I had a nasty experience with similar clothing in the past with the zipper remaining stuck in the down position most of the time!
These are my top 5 picks that I would like to share with you!
