Could Have Been 5 Star with Some Minor Changes
Pros: The quality of the cloth and construction is great, it feels great; zippered breast pocket holds phone without concern for dirt getting in or phone falling out when bending over; extra knee material is properly placed. So-Sos: Like many other Patagonia items I've purchased, the cut is decidedly for a svelte frame [I'm 6'1"... Read More 175 lbs, so I would think I'd qualify, but these 33's are a bit tight around the waist], so opt for a wider size [or two]. Cons: The elastic straps unadjust themselves as I work and I seriously doubt the elastic will last as long as the rest of the fabric [a totally unneeded feature IMO, straps made of the same hemp all the way would have been better]; and the front zipper is too small or placed poorly in such a way that I pretty much have to strip down to pee. Make the straps in help and increase the size of the front zipper and they'd be a 5 Star
I am 6 foot 2 inches tall and and athletic 230 pounds. The waist is true to size but the 32.5 inch inseam is waaaaaaay longer, more like a 34 or 35 inch inseam.

Watch the leg length
Great beefy fabric. I had to return the first pair ordered (a Regular) expecting to lock in my 32" inseam. Wrong! Those Regular size where at least 36" in the inseam. Re-ordered after returning the Reg. and hit the sweet spot getting the Short size. So order Short leg length if you are a 32-33" inseam!

Could be great, but ....
I was thrilled to purchase Iron Forge HEMP overalls to wear on my farm. The rugged fit is great for winter farming in the South, but that's about the only season this heavy material can be worn in the South. Thus, a lighter fabric option would be fabulous.

The strap easily pops-off in the absence of this clip, which presents a considerable injury risk since the strap is elastic, come undone and inflict a nasty pop in the face with the metal clip. I'm disappointed that this flaw/oversight has passed safety inspection ... if that still happens. The overalls I have are a replacement for the one's that both clip covers broke and made the overalls essentially unsafe to wear, not to mention annoyingly coming undone. I have mentioned this several times to customer service, so hopefully this review will generate some action as I am a big supporter of Patagonia's efforts with renewable agriculture.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and for letting us know about these safety concerns. Please rest assured that we will be passing your feedback along to our Product Design Team so they are aware of these issues and can begin working on solutions to resolve them. In the meantime, please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) your overalls at any time as we want you to be completely happy with all of your Patagonia purchases.
Overalls are difficult to get just right
I think Patagonia does great at getting sizes right for people, this one feels a miss. Legs are too long, Im a 32 , 30 in pants, 511 height, so I get the 32 waist , but the length is just so long , and the straps you have to pull all the way back to fit. But if I got a 30 waist , I bet it would be too small. So something feels off. The legs are bag... Read Moregies. Which I mean baggies is ok bc theyre overalls, but like this is 90s baggie. So I can thrown them over sweatpants and a sweatshirt, but like true to fit, theyre too big
Perfect after slight alteration
Im 5 foot 10 and very slim. Usually I wear a 30-32 pants. I had to cut some length off the shoulder strap and re-attach the buckle so that the pants werent dragging on the ground with the regular fit. After that, they were perfect. I wore them for home renovation but theyre comfortable and warm enough for outdoor winter activities too.
I am 6 foot tall.
I am 6 foot tall. The regulars seem a little long. I have to adjust the straps to their max in order to wear them, and even still they are a touch long.

Read More is fantastic. But I just feel like a 6 foot tall person should fit more easily in the REGULAR size category. Maybe I should be in the short category, but it feels weird being 6 foot and opting for the short size out of short, regular, and tall.
Soft and rugged, like puppies.
My only issue is control of how high I want to hike these things up. I have the strap all the way to the end. The rest of the fit is good, but should I choose to go jogging or do yoga in these I might want to sinch them up an inch. I'm a smaller gent, 5'7" 160 lbs. I got a 33 short.

Bought these for construction/yardwork around the house, camping/fishing etc. I like these bibs, but wish Patagonia would work on the fit/cut. I wear 36/32 in all brand names period, including Patagonia. These however, were intentionally ordered in 35/30 (because of reviews I read). They fit like 36/32, so I'm OK with that.

Also, as stated in a review, the knee pad seems are too inside of leg. Move them 1" toward outside of leg so the actual knee pad will rest on knee, not inside of knee.
These overalls are perfect. Patagonia took the time to tailor the fit, consider all the pockets, consider a boot cut, consider the style and material.

Burly, yet supple and comfortable
I really can't say enough good about these overalls. Great quality fabric, very comfortable, adjustable. I appreciated the double layered knees with knee pad inserts. They keep me warm but they're not too hot. I love the hemp/cotton blend fabric, feels supple, yet burly. Definitely recommend. I normally wear a 28"-29" waist and ... Read Moregot the 29" because the 28 wasn't in stock. If I could have, I would have gotten the 28" since mine feel a bit looser than I'd prefer but not overly so.
Exactly what I was looking for, however the leg is wide and long. Unfortunately, I will have to spend even more money to have my overalls altered. A more tapered fit would be much better and judging from the reviews its a must. Make a great product even greater and give the people what they want.
Great, but the buckles break
Alright, these things are really comfortable and I do like them but I'm not even a year in and first the little buckle covers at the bottom of the buckles came off a little while ago and then one of the actual buckles (that attached the shoulder strap to the button) broke in half. Awesome that Patagonia does free repairs, not awesome that thes... Read Moree repairs take months.

I was initially surprised at how soft these are! Considering its July and 100 degrees out I havent got to wear them for work but I still think theyre going to be awesome! High quality feel, seems super durable. Bought a couple sizes up just so I can put some layers on underneath. Super happy with my purchase!
I really wanted to like these bibs. The quality was great. The design was also very good until you got below the waist. As others have reported, the leg sizing was way to large for the pants.

Great fit, but over-branded
So happy with this purchase, much softer than expected out of the box and the fit is great. The branding on the shoulder straps feels like a lot though. Really appreciate the entry into the workwear segmebt, but Patagonia is an elevated brand and it looks too expensive for labor-forward activities.
great product, need a lighter summer weight version
These are the best bibs! I have 2 pair and wear them almost every day. I would wear them every day but I am told I need to dress it up a little sometimes. Ok, the reason for my review is I need these exact bibs in a lighter summer weight, these are a bit much to wear when its above 85.
I purchased the 40 small and the overalls are sized too long still. Ive steady wore them for 2 weeks. The front pockets could definitely be reconfigured.

Hey Ned, thank you for providing this feedback. It sounds like these bibs were really being put to the test while at work, so we recommend buying a couple to alternate. Washing twice a week will accelerate the wearing as well, so if it's possible to wash less that would be a good idea. We do offer a free repair program for the broken buckles and holes you mentioned.

Works, sized well

At 5'11" and 175 lbs, they are so comfortable with tools on or not, that I would never undertake manual labor again without them.
Great but baggy
I love these overalls, very tough soft and broken in right off the bat. Kind of like Duluths Firehose material. I love the chest pocket layout. My only complaint is they are very baggy.

The Perfect Overalls
These overalls are tough as nails and still somehow soft and comfortable. The elastic straps are a godsend for mobility and pockets are nice and deep (though a couple of cargo pockets would be a welcome addition). But make sure you size up! I'm a solid 36 in everything I own from Patagonia, but their workewear, while being relaxed fit overall,... Read More seems to be weirdly tight in the waist. I tried the 36s first and they felt like 34s. The 38s we're just right, roomy but not sloppy.
Hemp Bib Overalls Tuff yet soft
These overalls were a gift for my son... I got him the ink black bib overalls, he just loved how soft they were and the way they just lay on his body but yet tuff enough for him to work in and the color was perfect, not too dark sort of washed black. Sizing was a bit tricky since these are relaxed fit and literally had to just read previous reviews... Read More and guess for the length since they only give sizing of Short, Regular, and Long with no actual measurements. My son is 62 and approx 200 pounds. His normal size in most pants is 34/34 but with most overalls we go up in waist to 36, so I first ordered 36/L but they were just so wide in the rear due to relax fit and seemed way too long so I easily exchanged for 34/R and they seem to work but the length could still stand to be slightly longer... if they shrink any when washed then they will no longer fit (length). Overall Great Bibs, just need approximate measurements for the Short, Regular, and Long lengths. Example in the photos they state model is 61 wearing a size 32 BUT how are you supposed to know whether length size is Short, Regular, or Long
Long search is over
I've been looking for a pair of overalls for about 7-8 years. I stopped by our local Patagonia store and saw these (Iron Forge Hemp) up on the display rack. After wearing them for a couple of weeks now I'm glad to see Patagonia participating in the "workwear" arena. Great blend of their style, ethics and functionality.

Great material - BUT lousy buckles
I've been shopping Patagonia since well before becoming Patagonia. Always come back due to ironclad construction and wear. I REALLY WORK hard with these overalls. And I will tip my hat immediately to say that they hold their own in the face of massive adversity in the fields and woodlots around our property. Yuppers... the fabric and stitching... Read More hold up marvelously. But... a BIG "however" - and this is the reason for my 3-star review - The buckles used on the elastic shoulder straps are total garbage. I've had these overalls for a year and a half. Right at the end of the last Fall work season and when I washed them a final time (and they were only a couple months old), one of the buckles broke... in the washing machine. What?! I sent them in for repair. It took about 3 weeks until they were returned, fixed and ready to go for the next season (the current one). After my second wash in this new Fall season work, guess what?... Yup! Another broken buckle... again in the washing machine (I do not know if it was the same "fixed" buckle or the other one). I have had other overalls from other companies. I have NEVER had buckles break on the job or in the washer. This is completely unacceptable. Patagonia should really have a chat with their supplier of these, because something is truly amiss. I did not send them back for another repair because I'm in the middle of major Fall work on the property and do not have the time to wait. I removed the remaining intact buckle and swapped them out for old buckles from a retired pair of overalls (many years old... many washes... buckles just fine) that were in my donate pile. I recommend your overalls for the majority of their materials and construction. But Patagonia folks... please address this serious Achilles heel.

The Proportions are Awful
The good here is that these overalls are very well made. The function is great and the material is super tough.

My issue is the fit. I am taller than ... Read Morethe average American male and wear the most bought waist size (34"). Patagonia sizing is usually a little small for me, so I bought a 36", which means the inseam is 33" (according to their website), an inch shorter than I order from other companies. The waist is perfect, but the height was clearly intended for a giant. If I have the chest where it should be, the crotch ends just above my knees and the double knees start just below my knee and run to my ankle. The pantleg itself ends midway down my feet. I look like a child in his dad's clothes. If I hike the straps up as high as they will go the crotch sits where it should but the waistline is now at my belly button and the double knees still don't cover mine when I kneel down. I have worked and hiked in these (trail projects) and the sizing makes them horribly cumbersome. After a few projects, I have tucked them into the bottom of my drawer and bought another brand's overalls. I will continue to buy Patagonia pants but I am never buying these overalls again unless they give an option for length (like many other companies do). If you are somehow the golden size for these overalls, they are far superior to most other brands and well worth the price. If you wear normal sizing for Americans, buy something else.
No break in required!
I was looking to an alternative to the common duct overalls as I don't do manual labor every day and wanted something comfortable without the break in period. I'm 6'1 190lbs with an average build. I typically wear a 33-34/32 in jeans and ordered a 32 in these. Inseam was perfect and even though I can fill out some 34's these wer...

Fit well. Look great. Very comfortable.
My husband has now bought four pair of these overalls, two black, two tan. He looks good in them. He has received several complements on his appearance. He loves the fit and the flexibility of the material. They have a pocket on the breastplate that he uses to carry his billfold and glasses to make it easy to fetch them when shopping. He considers ... Read Morethem his Pandemic Armor, with plenty of pockets for masks and gloves.
Tough as nails and comfortable to boot
From the start I've liked the hemp fabric and feel of work wear. It "breaks in" fast and has a nice "hand." With a major barn repair on the horizon for the fall having a tough pair of overalls seemed like a good idea. I love the deep pockets in the other work wear pants, so if I had a wish it would be to have those types of... Read More pockets on these.
I do like these overalls. The quality is top notch. I wish the fit was a little more trim. Im 511 and 180lbs. They are a little loose in a 32 which I normally wear in any brand. I also wish the double knee fabric came up higher on the leg. If those two things were different Id have given it five stars.
Thanks for the feedback Aaron. We'll pass your suggestions along to our design team.
Shoulder Straps not enough room
The shoulder straps do not give enough room to pull the bib up to your shoulder, and get your arms out. The length of the straps need to be cut down the back about 4 more inches to give you room to get on. Other than that the overalls are very well made, excellent quality and I recommend them. You will probably have to go to a seamstress and have t...

Thanks for the honest feedback Larry. We'll pass it along to our design team.
Great, but needs improvement
I love these, but the stretchy shoulder straps make for a sketchy experience sometimes. I love the idea, but it allows any objects I'm holding to fall out of my pockets if I lean forward at all. Also I'm concerned it will stretch out over time.
Hey James, we appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us on the Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Bib Overalls. We wanted to be sure you're aware of our [Ironclad Guarantee](https://help.patagonia.com/s/article/Ironclad-Guarantee). If the straps over time end up stretching that would absolutely be considered a warranty issue and you would be welcome to send them back for warranty evaluation.
Strong yet soft fabric. Hemp makes a wonderful blend.
I have not worn these overalls much because the local temperature has increased, however the fit and comfort is amazing. Im 6 at 190 lbs and the size 32 is perfect. The reason I gave it only 4 stars is because I need to have more experience with them.
Great material, odd fit
Surprised about the baggy fit. Am 6' and 185 pounds and a 35/36' usually fits me perfectly. The 36' I got is too baggy. I don't think clothes like these should be designed for layering underneath (- and I've lived in ND and CA). If people want to layer they should just size up. It's not like expedition gear. What I dis... Read Morelike the most is how wide the bottoms of the legs are. That might work for wearing over rain boots, but for woodworking it's too much extra fabric that could just get stuck somewhere. Makes me feel like I'm wearing bell-bottoms. That's my main reason for not giving it 4 stars. Maybe offer two different cuts? Am not thrilled about the elastic shoulder straps - wondering how long they'll last. Wish they were just hemp as well. Don't care about the big logo on them either even though I really like Patagonia as a brand. Material is fantastic - that's why I bought them to begin with, and the overall quality is great.
Thank you for sharing this thorough review on our Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Bib Overalls. The fit on the pant leg of these is a straight fit, but the look of them will change with different body types. They are intended to be worn over work boots. If somewhere down the line one of the elastic straps fails, you are absolutely welcome to send them in for [return or repair](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). We're also working on removing our logos from the line in an effort to keep our gear in rotation for longer, so we're already a step ahead on that front!
I bought these to help as a renovate our new home. It's great to have these because I can throw them on without fear of paint, rips, or other things. They're durable and extremely comfortable.

No other brand has a waist size 28 overall so that was great off the bat. The Regular is a 32 inch inseam which ended up being too long for me and I returned for a short, which Im still waiting on. I love the pocket layout. My one hesitation was the elastic shoulder straps bc Id read other reviews saying they were a weak point. I think theyll do ju... Read Morest fine but if they happen to not last as long as the rest of the materials I know Patagonia will fix them for me.
I really like the flexible feeling of the hemp material and think it breathes better than others. The only disappointment at all that I have with these bibs are that the legs are not made for taller work boots. I will spend an extra $40 with a taylor to get them perfect because I like the other features so much.
I like everything about them! The only thing is they are quite long. I am almost 6' tall. Originally ordered the "regular" length but they were quite long on me, so I exchanged them for the "short." These are the perfect length for me...but never would consider myself needing a "short."
These are Comfy in the shoulders and throughout, the knee pad slots are lovely and receive frequent use, pockets are a-plenty and the hammer loop comes in handy, AND the material is so far, seemingly very durable in the face of the building site.

The only thing that really kind of bugs me(but only a little bit) is that the adjustable shoulder straps tend to loosen throughout the work day. This is a minor issue to gripe about as the rest of these overalls are delicious. If these were manufactured in Black, I would purchase another pair in a heartbeat... Great work!
Very nice work overalls
My only reason for rating 4 stars is the baggy fit. These are incredibly comfortable. The hemp fabric is tough and soft. Dont need a break in period. Shoulder straps are flexible and wide enough to be comfy even while carrying extra tools that weigh them down.

I wouldnt mind if the legs were a little skinnier, but I would buy these again and will plan to do so in 30 yrs when they finally break down.
not the only tall guy
I need them slightly longer. I need tall sizes. It's great to support a company that does so much good. I can't be the only tall guy who would like to wear your products. I have 2 pairs and I wear them 5-6 days a week for about 9 months out of the year farming organic berries and vegetables
Clip on strap broke
The clip on strap broke, the elastic is starting to fray on status ,& theres a small hole starting in the crotch. Theyre also really comfortable & I took them into a store for repair. The only really disappointing thing is the clip breaking, another review mentions same thing. I definitely used them, but the clip should have lasted a year... Read More. At least theyll fix it. I still REALLY wish I could order a another pair tbh, theyre great overalls. but sold out in store & online in 34 :(
Not made for Big guys!
Was wanting to get a pair but they are not made for anyone bigger than average size. ( Not all of us are slim and trim ) Also, a lot of guys like to wear sweat pants or shorts underneath, meaning that you need a bigger size for comfort. Hopefully the design team develops a big and tall line. Until then I have to shop elsewhere :-(
Hey Pete! Thanks for the feedback on the fit. We realize we still have work to do supporting people of all sizes seeking outdoor gear that is durable and produced consciously. We hope you can shop with us in the near future as our line expands and demand for extended sizing grows within the outdoor industry.
I have two other Patagonia work wear items of the same industrial hemp fabric. They are super durable and are designed well.

Overall, I am quite happy. I have several of the double knee work pants and love them.

(I wish the pants had them) The overalls are warmer for work wear for me in particular since I am a tall man with short legs. It's not the easiest thing to find shirts that are ling enough in the torso & the sleeves. These overalls keep that occasional gap below my shirts covered up - which is what I was looking for. When I ordered them I had concerns that the bib wouldn't come up high enough. It is not an issue; believe me, at 6'-3" with a 31" inseam it's not often that I find a good fit. My initial reaction was: "they're good but I'm not sure if I'll buy more." After a few weeks wearing them I think I will buy a couple more. Can I get some more color options please?

Really Patagonia? Who are you designing your work line for? I have supported your brand for years but the fit of your work line is as bad as it gets. I am a full time woodworker.

I usually need to buy athletic fit in things like jeans. Are others not saying the same thing?
Thanks for leaving us a review! We're sorry to hear the fit did not work for you and your feedback is very important to us.

Light and comfy
I bought these a lot larger than my normal 32 as I like my overalls not to ride up when Im working with my arms over my head and to breath on warmer days, probably couldve gotten away with a 34 short, but theyre are comfy and light.

Nice quality, Took a return to find right fit
There's a lot of sizing variation for these overalls and for me, my original purchase was for an intended roomy size 38 waist and 32 length. This size proved way too big all around. After return, my 2nd order of 36 waist and 30 length fits great. While it may be listed, I think Patagonia should make mention of any anticipated shrinkage of the ... Read Moreclothing. These overalls I have not washed yet but don't think they'll shrink much at all. So am happy with the purchase and overalls are of very good quality.
Clip on strap broke ;(
So I Really like these, I have the insulated version, but the clip for the strap broke and Patagonia does not seem to have a replacement. I just I could return them, but I am not into throwing away a good pair of pants. I want to repair them myself and be sustainable. I have MacGyvered a fix, but I expect more for Patagonia.
We appreciate the feedback on our Men's Iron Forge Overalls. We're sorry to hear that you have experienced a broken clip, you are always welcome to send these in for [repair](https://www.patagonia.com/repairs/), our Repairs Team might have some different clips they can put on there if the originals are not available. If it turns out to not be repairable, we do recycle all unrepairable items.
Rugged AND Soft!
I love the feel of the fabric in the overalls! Very supple yet rugged! Love the zipper pocket and all other convenient pockets. Also, they DO NOT SHRINK like cotton does, when machine washed hot.

Tough Material with Weak Straps and Janky Buckles
The material on the body is awesome, a comfortable but relatively thick and tough canvas type material. I'm a 145 lb, 29" inseam and got the 28" short and had to hem about an inch or more of the leg. The waist is a bit snug and I installed a new button to let it out a bit. The material is heavy enough that they are too hot for Virg... Read Moreinia summer work in the heat, but great as the weather turns cool. To improve, lose the hanging loop on the back upper back, it just snags stuff. And I'm replacing the metal buttons with regular sew ons plastic ones for warmth, weight, comfort, dryer noise. Like most pants, the pockets could be deeper. Why are we still buying pants that can't fit a 2015 plus sized phone without it peaking out? Overall these are really good, and my criticisms are minor and the result of a near pathological attention to details, and can be remedied if necessary with some hand stitching. Yeah, the shoulder strap logo is a bit much, but I love Patagonia, so why not show it? I will report back with the durability of those shoulder straps. They seem a bit weak and I suppose can be considered a maintenance item every year or two as the elastic dies but we will see. The buckles are sort of uncomfortable on my bony shoulders but I mostly don't notice. I will probably just sew them at some point and take the buckle off. I do highly recommend. 9/10 with a point off for smallish pockets, and I don't love the shoulder strap buckles.
These overalls are great, very comfortable and seem like they will hold up well to abuse. The suspenders are sub standard however.

The back pockets is high and are deep and the secured zipper/snap pockets are great. I wore them out of the store Friday night and then have worn them solid every day for a couple weeks and finally washed them. They were dirty after an oil change, dealing with chickens and cutting wood on weekends and work during week. When I finally washed them they loosened up even more and are just super comfortable because of the hemp. I wish they came in a dark color option, Id buy them @ release.
These are some of the best overalls I have ever purchased. I normally wear carhartt but I decided to branch out and I'm glad I did. The material is very comfortable and I like that they use hemp to be more sustainable. There's plenty of pockets for carrying tools and what not. Definitely worth the price, great job Patagonia!
