    I always wear long pants (cargo type) with steel toed boots. Except in July and August I also wear long sleeve shirts. During the time I wear short sleeves I use sunscreen of some sort.

    Can't see wearing shorts, Feel like my boots would fill up with stuff. I 've been wearing out boots each year. Had a nice fitting pair from sears for $89 they were supper light weight felt like a sneaker and had waterproof membrane. But they stopped making them. Haven't found a better or equal replacement yet.
