My hubby bought this for me for Christmas and let me tell you, it is the best coat I've ever owned. It's currently a balmy (not) 18 degrees and 20-30 winds here in the mountains of Flagstaff, yet I went out to the store at 8 pm and couldn't feel any wind. It's lightweight but tough and pretty stylish to me- it actually looks a lot like some more expensive designers style but with Carhartt's tough and hardworking soul. My hubby has had his original carhartt jacket for 5 years now and loves it- now it's my turn, too! Carhartt you're amazing!
