So I talked with some of you a while back about working for Steve C Davis, got an update, I got out of that hellish **** job, paid off my school loan with him and found a local home every day job that runs from Winston Salem NC to Lacrosse GA Monday - Friday, salary, sign on bonus, company paid insurance and 401k! :)

Now I will be outside in the weather at night for this job, run 12am til when ever I get back (between 1130am and 2 pm) so I am looking for somewhere that I can get a comfy pair of work pants that will also be warm when outside but not have me sweating to death in the truck lol

Been rocking some plain old cargo pants but in this day cab its not that comfortable in them since I'm a bigger guy hah ha

Wanted to see if you guys knew of some good winter wear for driving and being outside in the southeast region during winter.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

I like the Ridgecut work pants, can get them at Tractor Supplies.

Have you tried Duluth Trading Co.? They sell online, but have added retail stores. I haven't tried them, but they look to offer a variety of work pants that sound like what you're looking for.

I've had good success with cargo pants, made of a "rip-stop" material. They're generally (in my experience) not very thick/warm. But, they seem to offer me the long-pants benefit, without being hot. I operate primarily in the southeast region and Florida. A lightweight rip-stop is my go-to.

I hope this helps.

I wear blue jeans all year round.

Carhartt has good work pants. There are all sorts of styles and intended uses. The ones that are insulated for warmth probably going to have the seated area getting pretty toasty while driving.

Wrangler loose fit. Budget friendly. Lasts awhile.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Get some coveralls. On and off and keeps your other clothes from getting dirty. NC to GA isn't going to be cold weather.

Available at Walmart, so probably the most cost effective option.
