    Rain Defender®
    Rain Defender®, Durable water repellent—water beads up and rolls off.

    Rain Defender® durable water repellent garments are just as functional and comfortable while fishing, hunting, working, or standing on the sidelines at a football game in a sudden November rain. Water will bead up and roll off your sweatshirt, jacket, overalls, pants, and more, so a little rain won’t stop you from finishing the job without changing your gear.

Not only have we been making clothes for the worker for over a century, we’ve been talking to our consumers for over a century. In order to make sure our products will continue to serve your needs for the next century, we’ve enlisted an army of hardworking men and women to help us develop a better product and experience. We call these folks "Groundbreakers."

Very disappointed with fit.
3XLRegular? Not even close. Definitely not a working man or tradesman type fit. As soon as I noticed the "FORCE" label on the locker loop I new it was going to be too small. No 4XL size available either. Carhartt you missed the mark on this one. Too bad because the pocket setup is good.

My husband can't wait to use it fishing all season long.
