Do the Carhartt bib overalls have pockets that knee pads go into? I can't tell from the verbage ("Double knees can accommodate knee pads...") on the Carhartt site, and I have to buy these over the web. I hate the strap-on knee pads. Thanks

Mine don't have pockets for the pads, but they are a few years old and Carhartt may have changed their design.

i dont think current carharts will take pads... BUT

there are other ones out there that do. I have Big Bills http://bigbill.com/CANADA/pages/CD1884.html (http://bigbill.com/CANADA/pages/CD1884.html)

They are every bit as good as carharts. Plus there made here in canada (unlike carhart who has gone overseas and mexico for much of their catalog)

Another company with decent ones is Blakladder but they arent overalls http://www.blakladerworkwear.ca/catalog/workpants/heavy_worker_w_utility_pockets/
