Best paint suit

I'm looking to get a better suit to paint in. Ones I've looked at in the past have been around $40-$50. Are they all they are supposed to be? I've thought they might help with dirt/trash. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I use Kimberly Clark Kleenguard. I started grounding the car and parts to my water pipes in the building and eliminated most of the lint and static particles. Oh and I wrap my wrists with paper towels and tape up the sleeves,those coveralls get hot and I poured a bunch of sweat out an arm hole right onto a hood once.:(

Shower before and spray naked, there will be no dirt at all.
I learned that from Bondoking.
LOL, I recall spraying once wearing only a t-shrit and underwear underneath my suit. One thing I hate about painting is keeping things heated up, Im happy working in the 50's.

I have a SAS Safety moon suit, it has been ok for the little bit Ive used it. I always wear a cotton rag tied into a bandanna on my forehead, I like having the hood on the suit to kind of cover that up, then I put the strap to my mask over all that to hold it together should anything loosen up.

Ewwwww:eek:
I prefer dirt over hair.
Agreed. :D Not to mention nobody wants to see that. LOL.

Summertime I'll strip down to my boxers and t-shirt underneath my suit when it's really hot. Around here with the old building we are in the booth will get over 100 degrees. One reason why I love the SPI Urethane Retarder. Oh and my suit of choice is a nylon one. I used to use the disposable ones but got tired of them splitting in the crotch almost immediately after putting them on when I would squat down. My $50 dollar suit lasts and last. Works out to pennies per use versus dollars per use with a disposable one.

Thank you to all who replied. Good to hear some humor again. The one I currently use desperately needs replaced. Similar to ones sold at big box stores. I bought it at one of those discount surplus stores. I really appreciate this.

FBS are really nice and fit well, breathe-able fabric under arms help in the summer.

I use a reuseable suit but I also like a fabric head sock, it keeps sweat in check and overspray out of my hair. Also blue plastic HF gloves and masking tape wrists and ankles. ...and an old pair of glasses. :cool:
