    Can you give us a link to the exact suit you bought. They have suits from $60-$450 or more.

    I grabbed one from Home Depot this morning and it didnt make it through half a day. It remained waterproof and didnt tear, but the shoulder straps for the pants ripped off. The dang things fall off every minute, and then when I tightened them, they broke in no time. On to the next one I reckon...

    This suit has a similar shell to the regular carhartt everyone is used to with no insulation ive used this suit for everything. this thing is TOUGH!! expensive though but after going through 3 sets of the pvc style i had to jump on it. i got it on sale at the local dealer for i think 50% off after christmas a couple years back. it is the shoreline set i do recommend the shoreline coat over the shoreline jacket the coat is longer at the waist the jacket came up when i bent down and would have allowed water/snow down the back side. This suit is great for snow blowing i dont like to wear a heavy suit while plowing and shoveling this is just a waterproof shell.
