Back in high school a friend of mine was always working on some car or another. He wasn’t that cool guy who always had some kind of uber-engine almost ready to go in his sweet-ass ‘rod, though. He just wanted transportation and was always trying to put together one of his parent’s rejected junkers from the front yard.
Laugh all you want — the man had transportation. And he also had an ugly-ass set of insulated coveralls that kept him warm while he rebuilt that stupid GM converted-diesel-350-powered Delta 88 together for the 13th time just before Christmas.
My friend’s pair was brown, which is an entirely more practical color than don’t-shoot-me-I’m-not-a-deer orange, but for some reason orange just seems
cooler, um, nicer.
Maybe it’s because it looks remarkably like what the guys who work on Vipers in the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica wear:
Either way, this warm-man’s-onesie features a polyester brushed shell with a water resistant laminate on the outside, a polyester lining on the inside, and heavy-weight poly “Fiberfill” insulation between. Good stuff — just don’t let it catch fire.
Street pricing starts around $50. All cotton versions are available — but much more expensive.
