Barely lasts 3 winters without fraying
I've had multiple Carhartt duck jackets over the past 15 years. I've never had one last more than 3 winters without showing significant wear, primarily around the sleeves. My partner at work also has had multiple Carhartt jackets with the same issues in the last decade.

Let me start off by saying that I do not do anything more strenous outside than shovel snow and walk the dog. I don't ride snowmobiles or four wheelers, I don't hunt, I don't work outside.

Despite having the easiest life a jacket could hope for, they all still start falling apart at the ends of the sleeves. There's a ring of holes worn through on the outside of the sleeve around where (on the inside) the elastic cuff connects to the sleeve. It's about an inch up from the end of the sleeve. Loose, frayed threads and white blanket liner fall down and are visible from these worn holes.

This is congruent with other reviews here and elsewhere, and is very disappointing. The only guess I have is that reaching my hands into the pockets provides enough wear on the end of the sleeves to start them fraying, though the idea of a jacket not being able to stand up to itself is pretty sad.

I hope Carhartt reinforces their sleeve cuffs and returns to the fabled quality other posters here have experienced. To Carhartt: if I can provide any information that would be useful to you in fixing this issue on your jackets, I would be happy to. I do enjoy the brand, I prefer Made in America items of clothing, and really would recommend this jacket should this major issue get fixed. Until then, however I regret to say...

Great jacket, weird size sleeves
This a great jacket, and would rate 5 stars if the sleeves weren't big around enough for a NFL linebacker. The sleeve length is fine... Just too big around.
I'm 6ft, 43inch chest, 180 lbs. Pretty average build and I stay reasonably fit, so expected a better sizing match.
Fit great other than the voluminous sleeves.

Defective zippers
Zipper pull on the jackets are only lasting a year, then $10 to get replaced. Entire zipper is giving out on the arctic coats after a year, $30 repair.

For the price and hype, these products should last a lot longer (and this is not even everyday use - only 3-4 months a year).

Perfect Jacket For Working
Length is perfect for me...I'm in and out of the truck all day between job sites, and the short length is great for driving. And, wearing a tool belt, it's high enough to stay out of the way of my tools. Surprisingly warm on really cold days despite just being blanket lined. On REALLY cold or windy days, just add a hood. I have an extremes arctic hood that I use, and it steps this jacket up a notch or 2 in what it can do on deep winter windy days. Duck is pretty good at blocking the wind and shedding light rain too. I like that the blanket lined is more versatile than the other linings I have worn....still good for winter, but not too hot as a sprint and fall "emergency" jacket for when the early morning or late evening gets colder than you expected in your tee shirt. It was a good jacket, even when they started making it in other countries. Now that it's made in the USA again, and at a great price, you need one. Especially if you work for a living. Now get one and go get it dirty.

Awesome jacket
Couldn't be more pleased with this jacket. I was a bit concerned after reading some of the reviews regarding fitment but I have to say it is pretty much spot on. I'm 6'3" and 215 lbs I went with an XL tall and couldn't be happier with the fit. The extra 2 inches in the sleeves and length fit me perfect. Little bit of room in the waist but I believe that's by design as to allow for a more comfortable fit while bending, moving etc. or if you wanted to throw on a sweatshirt or heavy shirt underneath. The construction is top notch and materials appear to be made to last. Looking forward to many years of use from this jacket.

This thing is tough
I have owned one of these for over ten years and cannot kill it. The sleeves are frayed, the whole bottom is frayed, but the jacket still wears and fits great. No holes, no tears, wear it at work and at play. Yeah, it's stiff at first, but with some wear it becomes a part of you. I can't wait to finally wear mine out so that I can get another one and start over. I just don't think that I'll wear it out.

Durable Jacket, Clammy Arms
This was my first time buying anything Carhartt as I just got into the union construction field. I knew I needed something tough so I bough Carhartt because that's what all the vets in the field wear. I picked the Detroit jacket because of the timeless style and largely because it is made in the great USA by union labor. I read several reviews from what seemed to be people that have worn Carhartt for a long while. They complained about the nylon lining in the sleeves no longer being blanket lined, and it sounded to me like they were being too picky. I was wrong.
The blanket lining is great on the body of the jacket but the nylon lining of the sleeves cause my arms to sweat even when it's not hot out. We're still thawing out of winter here in Chicago, and my sweaty arms rubbing the nylon on a chilly March day makes my arms feel like the hotdogs in 7-Eleven on those heated rollers.
I hate to complain about an American made work jacket, but I hope this review helps buyers and Carhartt (listen to the suggestion of their consumers) as I am part of the next generation of potential life long customers. I would still recommend it simply for its practical durability, not comfort.
So I salute Carhartt with soggy arms for making the Detroit jacket in the USA but I respectfully ask to please get rid of the nylon and brink back the blanket lined sleeves.
PS I highly advise using the True Fit guide. The jacket seemed too big at first but after a wash it shrunk just enough to make it a spot-on fit.

Best Jacket Ever!!!
I purchased this jacket to replace the exact same jacket that I had been wearing for the last 10 years. 10 years in the construction biz for a jacket is awesome!! The jacket is extremely durable and very comfortable to wear. I also have the snap on hood which helps when its windy or extremely cold outside. Its warm enough by itself but not too heavy so you can layer underneath if needed. The short cut also is great for mobility and does not restrict movement. This is the best jacket that I have ever owned!!!

I am 6'4 would it be my best interest to get the medium or large? I don't want to have a baggy jacket I would prefer to have it fit just right. Thank you
Akbashboy on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The medium is recommended for waist sizes 32-34" and chest 38-40." The large is recommended for waist 36-38" and chest 42-44." Bear in mind, this is a shorter garment by design. The center back length in medium regular and large regular is 26 1/4." Medium tall and Large tall have a center back length of 28 1/4." Please contact Customer Service if you need more sizing assistance.

A shopper on Jul 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The sleeve length on a Medium is 35 7/8" from the center back.
Is the colour "carhartt brown" on the J001 model jacket the same colour of Matthew Mcconaughey's in the movie Interstellar?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The jacket in Interstellar was officially the same color as the one you mention (Carhartt Brown), but it was style RNJ001 rather than J001. The RNJ001 was a weathered duck, which means it was treated to make it softer/more broken-in. As a result, the color in the RNJ001 looks a bit more faded/broken in.

The J001 is a firm duck that has not been broken in, so the color will appear more saturated/vibrant.

For your reference, the J97, the Sandstone Detroit jacket, will have more of the soft feel of the RNJ001, but it is not currently made in Carhartt Brown.
