This coat was recently put to the test, with a full day of Rock Fest in the rain. And it passed most expectations. I say most because I could have used some pockets for my hands, however it does not lose a star for this. The glorious large hood was exceptional considering I wear flat bill fitted caps, and they worked in tandom. Without my cap the hood would be covering my eyes, constituting constant adjustments. Not the case with a cap underneath, with know worries of it being crushed in. The materials are quality and heavy duty; they are put together with care. There is no way you will get wet within. I don't normally like branded outerwear, and Carhartt is not shy with this jacket, as it takes up one sleeve in large bold blue print. I can let it slide as the style is to my liking in spades. Thanx, I doubt I'll be back to buy another! Well done!
