Clear advantages of bib overalls
Whether you wear overalls or not is a matter of taste. However, bib overalls offer a number of distinct advantages.
Firstly, they are more comfortable to wear than ordinary work trousers, which sit tight around the waist, whereas bib overalls rest on the torso instead. In other words, bib overalls are more comfortable around the stomach. Furthermore, it is possible to adjust the waist on all ENGEL bib overalls, which means that it does not matter if you put on or lose a bit of weight – you simply adjust the girth so the overalls sit as they should.
Secondly, all our bib overalls have a back which connects the bottom part with the braces. This section of fabric, which covers the lower back, helps to prevent the risk of draughts, and thereby protects the kidneys. Work that requires kneeling or squatting countless times a day increases the risk of clothes separating at the back if you wear ordinary work trousers. This is avoided by wearing bib overalls.
Bib overalls for different occupations
There are many jobs where it can be very practical to wear bib overalls. At ENGEL, we have many different categories of bib overalls. For mechanics, we have developed bib overalls where the buttons etc. are concealed to avoid the risk of car bodywork being scratched. For carpenters, we have bib overalls with practical hanging tool pockets, while for warehouse workers we have bib overalls made of a lighter fabric.
Bib overalls with safety in focus
If greater safety is required, take a look at ENGEL’s Safety and Safety+ categories as well as the bib overalls range. Here, the practical aspects of bib overalls are combined with the requirements for greater visibility and increased protection. These two categories also include bib overalls made of different fabrics and with different properties.
