I can guarantee easy access. Problem is, will they be....."flat" from fatigue, anger at the impossible lifestyle, management, all of the above? :(

Actually, once they get a good dip in the hot tub...they're usually all perked up again ;)

Eh, the hot tub is his...so it's a self remedy. I do try to take some of the sting out of the RR lifestyle though, when I get to.

Hehehe a good kick start is said lady wearing them with nothing on under them :wink: At least in my house it works something hot about that.
I like the fact all the pockets and the little loop fora hammer is where my green arm band goes so TM's will leave me alone about my reflective crap.But I still wear them. Wont wear the pin stripe ones till I get the card of all cards ( sacreligious you know to wear engineer bibs while not being an engineer)

dont twist the grapes! carpenters are fine most days, but in a windy cold the air cuts right through them. i have a set of insulated bibs one size larger, the 'air gap' is the key to keeping the cold surface air away.
what i would like to get is one of those polka dot kromers caps, sure to annoy those who dont 'get it' lol :P
my other article of choice is my l.l.bean barncoat.
