I am curious to know if anyone has any experiences or options they would share regarding the use of Long Coat/w Shin Protection vs Short Coat/w Bib Overalls? Pros / Cons of either??? Just to be clear I am not singling out any specific brand, I have seen these two different styles from multiple brands. I am more curious to know about the two different styles and is one safer than the other, one is more breath able vs one could allow the blast to blow up into the garment more, etc.

Thanks!!

I recall from my training a few years back, a test with a manikin outfitted with long coat and leggings. The free standing manikin was not knocked over, and was burned above the leggings. Perhaps Hugh can elaborate.

Hi All
I have attached a white paper in which Tom Neal wrote on protection concerns with the long coat for arc flash protection. It is a few years old however I am sure that the information is still valid

We had issues with the long coat when people would squat down. They would forget to pull up the coat and rip the zipper out. This would take the suit out of service until repairs could be made.
