    I’ve been wearing carhartt gear for ever. But my hip zipper just broke again 2 returns this year and 1 last. What other options do I have. I work out side year round and around wet dirty conditions, concrete cutting. What other out door winter bibs are there that I don’t know about.

    Go find a old time shoe repair place or somewhere that can sew in zippers. Buy the highest quality zipper they can get and replace the ones you use. This is all dependent that you like the Carhardts.

    I don’t own any of their outwear but, Duluth Trading Company makes some high quality wearables.

    I know a construction/contractor guy that only wears Duluth gear. Whether insulated bibs, midweight pants, or hot weather shorts it is all Duluth work wear stuff.

    I have a pair of dickies bibs that I like. They are a lot less stiff compared to my carhartts and feel a lot more comfy to wear

    I have a ton of Duluth pants guess I’m not sure why I didn’t think about there bibs.
    I never thought about duckies but I do hate their pants.

    I’ll be taking these to the seamstress lady but it sucks. Like the 12th time I’ve wore them.

    I like my insulated Dickies bibs but I do feel like the zippers are the weak link. That said it’s been 3 years and they’ve held up.

    Some guys will laugh but the Patagonia Iron Forge insulated bibs are the Cadillac of insulated bibs; i think they’re made out of hemp canvas. Yes, I’m a hippy.

    I second the recommendation to take a look at the Duluth Trading products. I don’t have insulated coveralls but the Fire Hose uninsulated ones are solid. The fabric holds up, seams don’t separate, hardware (zippers, buckles, etc.) don’t break. Pricing is in the same ballpark as Carhartt gear.

    My shops not far from the Fridley location. I may stop tonight. I looked online but just want to see the insulated ones in person

    They are not in the ball room. I love Duluth pants. That extra crotch patch makes a huge difference. Where are their outlet stores? Google only gives me their normal stores.

    I go to:

    Belleville, WI 53508
    Corner of Hwy 69 & Richard Rd near Burreson’s Foods

    for you MN folks, probably too far of a drive to be cost effective

    I do have the Duluth Trading Firehose Pants (non-insulated with stretch material) and they are solid.

    My only issue with Duluth Trading clothing is the origin tags. All Asian made from what I’ve seen.

    There is one in Redwing. Upstairs is the regular store and Downstairs is the outlet store.

    Perfect, I was trying to find the lady that did my old ice house zipper but couldn’t get in contact. I’ll call Isanti Tomorrow, thank you Rick.
