The warmest way to work
I bought this specifically for the great Arctic storm that passed by in February 2011. I needed it to continue working on my construction outside. I couldn't have made a better choice. I bought the dungarees so as to keep my arms freer for working. The side of the pants are closed with a solid zipper and also poppets, which makes it very easy to get a good fit over an additional layer, pants or around boots. The material does not give up. I washed and dried these as soon as I got them to try and loosen up the material. It didn't let up, which is a statement of quality. Nevertheless the material is comfortable and flexible for working, bending etc. The dungaree straps seem to be of good quality. The only comment would be the buckle seem a little thin for such a rugged item. Otherwise I would have given top marks for quality. However, I haven't had any problems with them so I'm sure it's just different to what I'm used to. Over all I'm very happy with the product. I'm going to by a lighter weight one for non-Arctic chills as well. Carhartt's got me covered for the full range of winter storms.

Good to have on in bitter cold weather
Very good product keeps you very warm but does not restrict you as much as you would think and still maintain the durability. The only problem I found with the bib is that when you zipper up or down the zipper gets suck on the extra fabric for the middle button. That is the only complaint, other than that these bibs can tackle any job you have outside any keep you nice and toasty warm.

Tough, flexible, and really warm
These bibs are for seriously cold weather. I work on rooftops in the winter and they keep me perfectly warm. I prefer the bibs because I need to go indoors at times and I can open my coat and unzip the front of the bibs to keep from overheating. It's easy to kneel and bend in these things. I only wear these in subfreezing weather because I worry about overheating in less severe weather.
