Default Coveralls??

I want some coveralls to wear to bush hog and clear some trees. I am not always in the middle of the field, but brush up against a lot of trees and bushes around the edges, and end up wit a lot of ticks. What is the coolest material for summer time in the South?

Off or something with plenty DEET sprayed around pants legs, belt line and sleeves.

Bush hogging I assume you are running a tractor, right. For cutting in the open field I dress with long jeans, steel toed shoes, long sleeved FRC cotton uniform shirt. leather gloves, for busting into the briars, small bushes and saplings same clothing plus a carhart ripstop jacket. If you are riding after the big stuff you might ought to consider a cage on the tractor. I've lost plenty skin and blood, busted tractors up, bush hogging new ground.

if'n I was on foot swinging a blade, same clothing, lots of water, start at daylight, quit for the day at 1000.

Forget about being cool in the south, it ain't gonna happen. You can bush hog nekked, and you gonna sweat like a horse. Extreme physical labor in the heat with any type of protective clothing, no matter how much water, liquids you drink, you are on a down hill slippery slope right into dehydration. I have bush hogged, broke new ground, fenced and maintained 40 acres in south La, my advice, start very early, when you can see your hand in the daylight, get after it. Either work until about 1000, or until the little white squigglies start dancing infront of your eyes, which ever comes first.
