5 best overalls for women farmers, with ratings

Published:

Women are in no way one size fits all, and while a woman might well want something that caters to her needs, that isn’t going to include something dumbed-down or something girly. But it still has to be functional, and comfortable to getting the work done.

Here’s the five best pairs of overalls for women farmers:

 

Carhartt Women’s Crawford Double Front Bib Overalls, $70

This set of overalls is 98 percent cotton, 2 percent spandex and comes in two colors, various shades of brown and machine-washable for various shades of dirt. The spandex allows for movement. Other features include:

  • Adjustable suspenders
  • Multi-compartment bib pocket with secure zipper closure
  • Two large lower-front pockets
  • Double knees with cleanout bottoms

What people have to say:

“Wore these for a week, during kidding season. Got covered in poop and other fluid but worked perfectly.”

“These are the comfiest anything I’ve ever worn! They fit perfectly and I love all the pockets! I wish I lived somewhere colder so I could wear them every day!”

“I was looking for some lightweight yet durable overalls for the upcoming season, these are perfect. Surprised how many compliments I received on them as well — stylish yet certainly are made to get the job done.”

 

Rosies Work & Gardening Cotton Bib Overalls with Knee Pads & Multiple Tool Pockets, $76

(Sorry, Amazon doesn’t have a linkable image available for this product!)

This product has zip-off pant legs and removable knee pads, so it’s pretty versatile and customizable. It comes in a range of five colors. In general, the whole line is designed to be easy to get on and off over boots, or while wearing work gloves. More features:

  • Double bib with multi-compartment pockets, secure velcro closure on front
  • Large hidden inner zipper pocket on interior
  • Eleven deep tool pockets with secure velcro and/or zipper closure so you can move around without tools falling out
  • Durable elastic straps prevent “wedgies” while working and heavy duty plastic buckles

From the reviews:

“If you ACTUALLY get dirty, need to get down in the mulch, gravel, poop, compost or fieldwork on a regular basis, these are a very good option, especially for the price.”

“Fits perfectly and the fabric is soft and comfortable. I thought the knee pads were a little low until I kneeled and they planted perfectly under my knees and shins.”

“It is large enough to layer underneath in cool weather and still allow for lots of movement. Love the removable knee pads and the amount and placement of pockets and the straps that stretch.”

 

Berne Women’s Washed Insulated Bib Overalls Regular, $50-$65

These overalls have a 10-ounce cotton duck shell with quilt lined taffeta lining. You’ll probably appreciate the double tool pocket and the oversized chest pockets, as well as the option of five colors. Some other highlights:

  • Zippered left hip pocket
  • Adjustable elasticized bib straps
  • Brass leg zipper with snap closure
  • Adjustable leg snaps
  • Hammer loop
  • Heavy-duty nylon leg hem

From the reviews:

“I live in New England, and highly recommend purchasing these if you work outside with cold conditions.”

“These have gotten me through the minus-15 degree days on the farm. I love them! They fit great and move with me very well, and have great pockets.”

“We had temperatures down to about minus-20 below 0, but barn and livestock work still had to be done, and these kept me comfortable.”

 

Carhartt Women’s Weathered Duck Unlined Wildwood Bib Overalls, $70

Available in three colors and machine-washable, these overalls are made from 12-ounce, 100 percent cotton weathered duck and can accommodate knee pads. Here’s what else they feature:

  • Adjustable suspenders
  • Multi-compartment bib pocket with secure zipper closure
  • Two large lower-front pockets
  • Multiple utility pockets
  • Utility band on each leg
  • Triple-stitched main seams for durability
  • Boot-cut leg opening

What the reviewers have to say:

“More durable material and a much more comprehensive assortment of storage compartments than can be found on other overalls.”

“They have so many excellent pockets! I’m always so frustrated by how small the pockets are on femme cuts, but not with these!”

“These do their job. I wear them to cut brush and I can wade chest-deep in blackberry bramble and feel no pain.”

 

Dickies Women’s Denim Bib Overall, $50-$70

This bib overall was created with ease of movement in mind and is made from a lighter, 100% cotton indigo denim. What it also has:

  • Roomy bib pocket
  • Hammer loop and multiple tool pockets on both legs
  • ScuffGard to prevent wear and tear

From the reviews:

“There’s one feature that’s on them I wasn’t expecting — on the back of each leg-cuff, the fabric is doubled and thicker. Having stepped on the back of my pantlegs often, this is a really nice detail.”

“Having all the pockets is very handy, especially when you’re up on a ladder and need something handy right away.”

“The denim is medium weight, which makes them useful for most of the seasons. They appear to be well constructed and I think they will hold up over time.”
