What do you wear to be comfortable in the cab?

    Another question I'd like to see across the board ... What do you drivers out there wear to be comfortable all night?

    Obviously, us drivers don't wear full snow gear. Do you have any special outfit you wear or just whatever your daily clothes are for the day? Any gear that you couldn't do the job without? How about gear you can't stand?

    A pair of jeans, a t-shirt and a hoodie are what I wear in the truck. I take along two pairs of workboots and a few pairs of socks just in case my feet get wet.

    I wear pretty much what I usually wear in the winter....jeans, a long sleeved shirt, a fleece, regular shoes, and I keep Carhartt overall's and boots in the back seat in case things get ugly.

    carhartt pants, hoodie and logger boots, same thing i wear everyday. carhartt jackets in the truck too

    i prefer the carhartt pants over jeans because they tend not to get as wet, with jeans moisture always seems to soak up the pant leg from the bottom

    Same for me. Seems that Carharts are popular.

    I usually have some lined pants or even techwick long underware on heavy coat hat and gloves near by. I like to have my windows down so it gets cold in the cab and I dress accordingly

    Window is always down. I love the sound of a cold steel blade rubbing against the asphalt. Anyhow, t-shirt, flannel, carhart sweatshirt, and the regular carhart, and gloves are in the seat next to me. Of course an extra pair of socks, and an extra pair of dry workboots just in case.

    I wear lined carhart pants, a T-shirt, hoodie, nice warm boots (my feet are always cold in my bobcat). In the truck I keep a whole change of clothes, jacket, bibs and 2 pair of gloves.

    I give my brother hell for plowing in sneakers, cargo pants and a Tshirt. If he ever has a breakdown he will freeze to death lol.

    I wear carhart bibs but after a few hours just run alittle defrost window down. Best tip ever is take your wallet out put it in your glovebox. The little extra spacer in the backend will make your back feel screwy.
