My husband is a welder. He wanted a pair of overalls that had straps because it is summer and it is already hot enough with welding. He just has a lighter pull over jacket to go over these overalls. I have used these overalls when doing our garden work around the house too. I can see why my husband picked these overalls. They are so comfortable. They are light weight, which makes it easy to move and bend when wearing them. I like that they have pockets and straping where I hang my garden tools onto. I am in the process of getting a pair for me so I don't have to wear my husbands. As they are a little funny looking on me as I have to roll them up on the legs. My husband likes these to because they cover his chest, legs and stomach where he gets dirty the most. This is great because it saves on shirts and laundry too. And the best thing about these Dickies is they look sexy on any man, If you like a man in workwear.
