depending on what you are doing.......hgell yeah carhartt's are a great buy man!!! wall's and some other make some like the carhartt's, but they dont last as long. i have 4 pairs of carhartt's now.........for different things, and i wouldnt trade them for nothing. i use mine for working on cars/trucks in the wintertime, and the others i use for when im splitting wood or doing yard stuff when its cold as crap.

I agree with will, it does depend what activities you will be doing.

I have carharts for cutting wood, ice fishing, bird hunting (resist briars well) and most general work outside.

Not waterproof if you are riding quads in the snow or something like that.

Down jacket = very warm
http://www.baskcanada.com/Featured/down-wear/down_wear.htm

Remember that buying Carharts is like buying a Taco. There are many different models that kinda look the same on the outside. From a distance the Taco 4x4 and Prerunner look similar.

Same thing with Carharts....some linings are for mild weather and some are for arctic weather.............they are not the same.

What kind of activity in what kind of temperatures are you thinking? If your thinking scentlok, that is typically for hunting....

yeah, i was gonna mention that the linings are different. the black linings are for miler weather....still cold, but not as cold, and the red liners are for pretty damn cold weather in the bibs and coveralls...........im pretty sure thats how it goes anyway.

there's also a little something known as layering. i.e. don't depend on one article of clothing to keep you warm and conversely think what happens when it gets to warm to wear a heavy parka.

further example: base layer long johns (thermals), regular clothes over top, a sweat shirt or fleece over that -- maybe some insulated pants, a vest if needed, then yer jacket. for the feet: cotton socks under wool socks over and a pair of sorels or the like. ... I don't know need I go further? You get the idea right?

well explained....layering is always the key. I have the arctic jacket like you posted above, if you aren't carefull with that dude you can get too hot real quick. It is very warm and I can't even cut fire wood with a T-shirt on underneath it.....its best for activities less physical like Ice-fishing or even riding the quad.
