Thatís why my knees are shot to bits sadly.
Mine too after spending decades working on old cars.

Agree with everything mentioned.

Trousers with extra pockets
Decent tools/grips etc
Moisturiser
Hand cream
Vaseline
Chap sticks
Thermals!
Base layers
Steel toe cap work boots
Thick work socks
Hand warmers (pocket ones you can activate in morning & last for hours)
Beanie hat
Decent waterproof work jacket

Trying to think what else my lot have

Oh, Gillett was popular last winter as they werenít as restrictive as a coat but handy when a jumper wasnít enough. They like to Ďlayer upí so the6 can strip layers while they work.

How times have changed since 1970.

Wish I had listened about wet weather gear and thermals in the 70's. Maybe my back wouldn't be in bits now.

My husband always wears a vest under his T-shirt (just a sleeveless black T-shirt really), in winter long thermal socks and always a warm thermal hat. He currently has snickers trousers with the pockets for the knee pads. He prefers braces to a belt.
Finally, a thick hi-vis waterproof coat is always in his van.
