Blue jeans are like a cheap motel no ballroom.

Leave those side buttons unbuttoned and you have a pretty neat pass through ventilation system especially when you bend at the waist. :nod:


You have worked in this jungle TB, not many places have the heat and humidity we do.


Got that right CB. Burning hot by 8 AM and never slacks up. Humidity thick enough to cut with a knife. Not to mention mosquitoes that are huge

I have bibs - with shorts - or you can always cut off your bibs & make your own shorts. But, bibs are comfy.

Carhartt canvas loose fit Jean's. I'm a linemen so working in the heat is what we do. Those are the best pants in the world. Get em soaking wet 20 min later bone dry. Only things I wear now.

Well, can't be much worse than this old lady!! LOL
Actually, I hate wearing shorts out in fields of around the cows.
Throwback to my years living in Kansas and dealing with CHIGGERS!!!! My nightmare. They LOVED me & I react badly to all bug bites. To this day, when I feel grass touching my legs, I get a knot in my stomach.

This!!! Plus ticks, thistles, thorns, poison ivy, snakes . . . . I don't care how hot it is, my legs are covered, I'm wearing boots & doused in Deet 40.

I can deal with it all, except heatstroke. I also use a 4 wheeler when possible. Last year I actually ran out of gas in a 6ft tall stinging nettle patch wearing only a swim suit and gym shoes. That was fun, but actually got out without a single sting, but understand people have different tolerance for different conditions and my tolerance for heat is far less than a sting scrape or bite...

I don’t like to wear shorts when working outside, I hate when dirt and grass sticks to my legs. Suffered through the heat in jeans for years, now wear Duluth trading dry on the fly work pants. Light weight plenty of pockets and so much cooler than jeans.
