I had high expectation of the Pulsarail coverall, having worn similar coveralls from Pulsar Workwear before, but unfortunately I was disappointed.
I think the inclusion of cargo pockets, although in vogue at the moment with cargo pant style work wear, is a big mistake, and for me, creates safety issues with large protruding pockets and flaps, which ruins the whole point of a coverall, and they are only going to get caught in something at some time. The elasticated cuffs are large and uncomfortable, and I'm not sure what they were thinking; claimed as a safety improvement, I think this actually makes them less safe.

Sizing is also an issue; the coveralls come up really small; I normally take a large but the L size was too tight, so I had to go for an XL, which ended up being just a bit too baggy.

The quality of manufacture is good, which you would expect for the price, but some of the press studs on the front flap were not aligned correctly, which spoilt the look, so quality control could be improved. Given the price, I expected much more.
