While plowin in the truck usually no coat, just my stockin cap. oh and some good hunting type boots... steel toes suck in the winter....

    Long underwear, jeans, and a nice flannel shirt, cant' wear a hoodie as it irritates my neck from constantly turning my head!

    My fleece lined jeans...very warm. My underarmour turtle neck, company t-shirt, company hoodie and the carhartt coat. Then I have Muck boots that are extremely warm, great for the cold. I agree, steel toe sucks. And of course the stocking cap and gloves.

    I'm usually layered really good.

    Under shirt or standard t shirt. Long sleeve t-shirt, company sweat shirt and then a medium weight hoodie. I have a carhart jacket for over top. A nice pair of wool hunting socks keep my feet nice and warm. If its really cold out, I'll throw either my insulated hunting coat or my insulated hunting bibs. (There nice too if its late and dark out as the blaze orange lights up nice!) lol

    usually thermal long sleeve under a tshirt with a hoody on that usually comes off after little when im nice and toasty. whatever work jeans are layin on my floor, nice warm pair of gloves and a hat incase of a repair. steel toe boots that have to go, once your in the snow more then 5min, usually after cleanin of the truck before i go, your feet never seem to get warm which really blows since my full time job usually lands me outside or in unheated building all winter. sick of my dam toes always been frozen :realmad:

    I've got a pair of jeans, rocky snow boots or leather work boots with steel toes or cowboy boots, hoodie or flannel shirt, carhartt type coat, baseball hat, and a pair of carhartt type bibs in my truck also, and a few pairs of leather work gloves.

    Tonight it was flannel shirt, jeans, carhartt coat, cowboy boots, and my trusty baseball hat.

    always my spandex pants, with a loose sweater vest. Most comfortable thing to wear, sometimes my ear muffs too.

    I can try and find a picture of me plowing.....

    I'm with GV. How can you be comfortable with all of that stuff on. Plus, doesn't it wear you out?

    I keep the car starter on my night stand, so when I leave, the truck is hot inside.When I get in the truck I wear a long sleeve tee, sweat pants, and slippers. I keep a bag in the back seat with jeans, carhartt, and boots just in case I get stuck
