    Also would suggest trying Helly Hansen. They manufacture this kind of stuff locally, and have an outlet store that might carry (or have access to) a pair.

    To add to that, Helly Hansen is located facing Burnside Drive, with access from Commodore Drive/Brownlow Ave.

    Check to see if anyone sells nomex, they are pretty much the standard in the oilfield.

    I just sold eight pairs when I quit the rig a month ago. Too ad I didn't know you were looking...

    Nomex or Indura Ultrasoft are pretty much the standards in the oil patch. Nomex are lighter material, Ultrasofts are a bit thicker...

    I got a couple pairs of Roll'n Oilfield Industries ones, new condition, size 46T, nomex, $100 a pair, you would have to pick them up in Dartmouth.

    so, the nomex pair of coveys my buddy gave me from the rigs are actually pretty expensive?

    off topic, but who knows how to clean these things properly?

    dry cleaning is the best (your covies come back looking brand new) but the life of them is reduced

    typical nomex or indura oilfield covies are around $150 a pair

    no

    only cheap fire retardant stuff loses it's properties when you wash it.

    sunlight and shit doesnt hurt the nomex/indura covey's, but dry cleaning does hurt the indura ones a bit over time.
