RefrigiWear® customers are some of the toughest folks we know. They stare down the harshest, coldest conditions every day and don’t even blink. That’s because they know they are protected by durable, insulated workwear designed specifically to survive the wrath of Mother Nature.

When you need an all-in-one solution to keep you warm and keep you going, our insulated coveralls and bib overalls can’t be beat. But how do you know which one is right for you? Read on to discover the pros and cons of bibs and coveralls and make the best choice for your work environment.

Pros and Cons of Insulated Coveralls

Our coveralls are some of the best-known products RefrigiWear® has ever made, and with 70+ years to perfect our performance engineering, they’re some of the best gear around for fighting the cold. But no single solution is right for everybody, so let’s take a look at the facts:

Coveralls might be the best choice for you if:

  • You need the absolute maximum full-body warmth RefrigiWear® can give you. Our Iron-Tuff® coveralls can keep you warm all the way down to -50°F.
  • You need an all-in-one outfit for your whole body.
  • You want the highest level of wind protection we’ve got, which is even better if you use our Iron-Tuff® Snap-On Hoods.
  • You want front pockets, chest pockets, sleeve pockets—basically, you love pockets and want a lot of them.

You might want to consider other options if:

  • You need a lot of airflow around your upper torso to feel comfortable.
  • You need a garment that’s more adjustable and gives you more options for amping up warmth or toning it down to match changes in your environment or activity level.

Pros and Cons of Insulated Bib Overalls

Insulated bib overalls, also known as snow bibs, are some of our most versatile and durable garments. Many of our insulated workwear collections include at least one pair of bib overalls, so you can mix and match them with insulated hoodies or jackets. Here are some things to consider when you’re looking at snow bibs:

Insulated bib overalls might be a good choice for you if:

  • You need a bigger range of upper body motion than coveralls can give you.
  • You want more airflow around your torso.
  • You already have an insulated coat that you like and you need a bottom layer.
  • You need an outfit that is highly adjustable to the shape of your body.

You might want to consider other options if:

  • You’re working in extreme cold and need total self-contained warmth.
  • You carry lots of small gear with you and need many extra pockets to store them.
  • You need protection with a total wind seal in a one-piece garment.
