Insulated bibs  look similar at first glance but each style has its own advantages and disadvantages, depending on what you are looking for.  Amazon has excellent prices on the whole line of insulated bibs.

How much insulation for your coveralls?

There are a few levels of insulation in the Carhartt insulated bib coveralls line.  Amazon has excellent prices on the whole line of insulated bibs.

The Carhartt Men's Extremes Arctic Quilt Lined Zip-To-Waist Biberall is the absolute warmest with a  nylon shell as opposed to the thicker cotton duck that most workwear has.  Reviews say these are stiff to wear, so don't expect great flexibility for movement, but they are really warm!

The Carhartt Duck Insulated Bib Overall Quilt Lined in the picture, is a mid weight insulated coverall, better suited for less cold weather or more active work, so the clothing isn't too warm.

Men's Carhartt Insulated Sandstone Bibs have the standard weight insulation and are super hard wearing and for lots of activity on the job site or hobby.

What zippers for your coveralls?

Insulated work bibs with ankle to hip zippers make taking the workwear on and off a little easier.  Laundering is easier and drying quicker too.  They tends to be slightly less warm than the ankle to knee as there can be a slight draught through the zipper.  Most work wear zippers have a draft excluding wind flap to keep warmth in.

Carhartt Men's Quilt Lined Duck Zip-To-Thigh Bib Overall is an example of less warm but ankle to hip zippered insulated bib coveralls.

Standard weight ankle to knee insulated overalls are the Carhartt Duck Insulated Bib Overall Quilt Lined. For thicker insulated see above at Arctic insulated coveralls.

Certainly zippers can be the weak point in cheap work apparel.  Once a zipper goes, it is a nuisance to get it replaced, and going without defeats the purpose of wearing insulated clothing.  Carhartts clothing zippers are regarded as being good quality and last for years.

What colour for your insulated coveralls?

Your safety, comfort and the lifespan of your work-wear needs on getting the right leg lengths.  The Carhartt work pants line comes varying in seam lengths, from 28" to 36" long, though some styles only go 32-36".  The elasticized shoulder straps also gives some flexibility in length to keep pant legs from wearing on the ground.
