    Anyone tried caterpillar clothing??

    Saw a couple of heavy work jackets that looked nice and toasty today, been looking at reviews and they seen to come out ok but seams falling apart is there down fall.

    Anyone here used caterpillar clothing or boots before?

    Caterpillar Jackets: Men's W11432 016 Black Heavy Insulated Water-Resistant Parka - Working Person's Store

    Yet too look for one in nz but looking at prices overseas they are looking at around $200 including shipping.

    Read another review saying after 2hr rain they get wet inside,so make that 30mins of nz rain looking at using up in the snow yet needs to be tough enough to be crawling under vehicles etc.

    I had a pair of Cat boots a few years ago. They were the biggest pile of shite ever. Soles literally fell off after 6 months

    Had a pair of Cat boots many years ago, were very good till the dog got hold of them. Not sure what the quality is like these days.

    Not many positive comments there..... I have a couple of pairs of cat workpants I bought 2 years ago while over in oz really good a..but only wear them for 3-4 months a year (no not without changing) maybe it depends on where they are manufactured or maybe they just send the shit over here because we are a smaller market?

    Hmmm talked with the guy wearing one and he reckoned it was lasting ok.... Think I'll get one and expect it to die by the end of the season and be pleasantly surprised when it doesn't. If it's under 200 then I won't be complaining.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts
