I've been wearing these jackets for 25 years and have always loved them.
The good - new inside pockets, love them. The bad - when did Carhartt drop their sizing and go to s-m-l, etc? I've worn a 42 regular forever and they fit great. Now a medium is too small and a large is a little big, not the great fit I was used to. Disappointing.
I have owned what must be one of the original carhartts and it has been passed down from my grandpa and it is still in great shape and still warm. Unfortunately my old one has seen its better days and worn only for house chores but the new one is amazing. It is very maneuverable and the material is very giving so you don't feel like you're in a straight jacket when you're trying to work in it. I recommend buying this not only for yourself but for your kids and their kids when they are ready to work hard in a tough jacket.
this is a great jacket, im only writing a review for one reason, and thats because i think this jacket is amazing BUT there are only 2 changes id make, 1. instead of velcro on the outside flap could you make metal snaps instead? and also the inside lining is nice but it rips faster then some, my favorite jacket you have made thus far is unfortunately discontinued which is the dearborn sherpa jacket. everything except for the velcro was PERFECT i love the sherpa lining, its by far your best inside lining. also the reallyr durable zippers. i am a little disapointed in the sherpa lined vest zipper though its not as strong as the jacket zipper, ive had 2 break on me in 2years and id really appreciate something a little more tough. thank you for reading
When I put on this jacket in the morning I feel like I am ready to work. This is the toughest jacket I have ever owned. I wear it everyday that I can and it has not let me down yet. But that is what you get with Carhartt products, relentless quality. thanks Carhartt!
The fact that this jacket comes in coat sizes (example; I wear a 48) makes this one of the best fitting jackets made, PERIOD. I am comparing it to other jackets that cost 3 to 4 times more. It has just enough insulation to keep you warm over a range of tempuratures without being too warm.
I have always thought this was the coolest Carhartt jacket of all. Bought one 3 years ago and love it. Of the 5 Carhartt jackets I own, this one is my favorite one. I love the arctic lining, it is so comfortable and warm. I use this jacket for every day use when it is cold outside. Arctic lining can't be beat on cold, windy days.
Very warm... well made exterior but too bulky in the arms and a little too short. Ends just above my waist line. Probably should have went with the longer "coat" version but that was twice the price:( NOTE: This jacket is very stiff (as expected) so I tried to wash and dry it in the machine. Bad idea; the inside burned a little and ripped. Now I have a hole in my new jacket and haven't even worked in it yet!
VERY WARM I YSE IT WITH MY INSULATED BIB COVERALLS THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD MAKE IT BETTER IS IF IT HAD A POCKET ON THE SLEEVE OR CHEST FOR PENS. I WORK OUTSIDE AND HAVE TO WRITE ALOT AND IT A LITTLE AGGREVATING HAVING TO UNZIP TO GET A PEN OUT.
I ride a motorcycle, the hiden cuffs keep the wind out and the warmth in. Great wind resistance, and warm. I wear this jacket year round, I've had this jacket for two years and its still the only jacket I where. Thanks!!
I just got my new jacket and had to use it for a snow storm that we just had. It keeps you so warm and lets no wind in with the wrist cuffs and the flap in front over the zipper. I would never get any other jacket that is not carhartt. I plan to get this jacket again and again.
I received this jacket for Christmas from my wife. I wanted a quality jacket that would look good and keep me warm. This jacket fits all my criteria and much more. I will never buy another jacket other than a carartt.
Have always loved my Carhartt jacket and after 27yrs its time that it needs to be replaced, after going to the store to buy a new one, which I couldn't wait to get another one because I loved the first one so much, I noticed that they had no jackets that were made with tailored sizing anymore, I tried the small on and was way too big, thinking maybe I had a med. instead and was mislabeled so I tried another small on, same thing, was and am so disappointed that they got rid of the tailored sizes, my old one which is falling apart now fits great! So now I'm forced to go looking else where for a jacket that will fit, when I got home I even went by their sizing chart to see what that came up with and that says that a small would fit, well, it sure doesnt fit me at all! Carhartt, what a shame, you had to change sizing on these great jackets..
We appreciate your loyalty and will be glad to share your input with Product Design for future reference.

Perfect Construction Worker Jacket
I purchased this as a replacement for a jacket form another brand and was overly satisfied immediately after trying it on. The only criticism I have is that the zipper handle snapped off within a week of use.
As another reviewer recently posted Carhartt seems to have moved away from the tailored sizing that they offered, thus the products don't fit as well but are still of excellent quality. Over the years I've worn everything between a 40 Long to a 48 Long. Recently I've lost a lot of weight and went looking to replace my now very large 48 Long jacket. The first thing I have noticed is that it is near impossible to find this traditional style in stores (North Central Texas) and they of course have done away with the tailored sizes. At this time I would say I am probably a Medium Tall but that coat does not exist, a Large Tall is a little big. I am dissapointed by the new sizing, but once I can find one that fits I will still buy it. One of my favorite things about this traditional coat was the fact that they don't need hangers when new. Just set them on the floor and they will stand up under their own starch level. Very practical.
