    There has to be some bib wearers on this forum. Do you prefer high or low back overalls? Pros and cons of each?

    I wear the kind from Bimart. As to if they're high or low Im unsure, but I like wearing theirs a heck of a lot more than I like wearing my crawlspace jumpsuits.
    I find I have a much better range of motion with bib overalls.

    Sorry that didnt really help your post. Its just the first time anyone here has talked about bib overalls before and I got a little excited.

    I have both. So it depends on what I am going to do. Working under something on my back or front I like the overalls. If the work is standing up or on my hands and knees I like the bibs.

    I am wearing High Back because they are less likely to scoop dirt down your pants when your on your back (under a rig or in a crawl space).
    I discovered this by accident because one year (decades ago) the wifey saved $5 when she bought the high backed bibs. I sorely miss those bibs, the wifey, not so much.

    I wear Carhartt bibs working around the property, I guess those would be high back?

    High back, keeps the straps from sliding down your shoulders, better for laying on your back and working on stuff, easier to put back on without twists.

    Prefer low back because then if I carry something like a pack on my back I get some ventilation and I can get into the back pockets on my jeans easier.

    I prefer the high back Carharts. Just seem more comfortable to me.
