It's the best on the market !!
Carhartts Hooded pullover is the best I've ever owned.
I'm a construction worker and usually work outdoors all winter and this pullover is very comfortable and very warm.
There is nothing negative I can say about it.

Rain Defender with comfort
The Rain Defender Sweatshirt certainly does so with comfort & warmth. I spent one cold, rainy day winterizing the outside of the home warm & dry - I was very impressed! I also loved the extra pocket within the front hand pouch to store either my cell phone, car keys, or even loose change. If I had to change anything about this sweatshirt, I'd ask Carhartt to make this with a heavier hood that was also larger then average hood for those that have to wear hard hats while working, along with a higher interior collar inside the hood to protect the neck from the cold. Besides those two changes, this is an excellent sweatshirt for the price & I will buy another when the one I presently own wears out!

awesome sweatshirt
I'm in construction and am outside about every day, all year long, in all types of weather. The sweatshirt is warm, heavy duty and water beads right off of it. I like plenty of room to layer underneath, I'm 5'9" 185lbs and an XL fits great. I've had mine for a couple of months and so far it has held up great in the rain, mud and snow. If you spend a lot of time outside in less than perfect conditions this is a great shirt to own.

Buy this sweatshirt!
I am in love with this sweatshirt! I work out doors in any and all conditions and this is built for and has me ready for all of them. This shirt is a heavy weight but still lets me be very mobile and comfortable and warm. I am in occasional drizzle and rain showers that popup without warning and it keeps me dry and breaths well. I was skeptical about the rain defender option but I am now a firm believer in it! I will be getting more rain defender clothing.

Quality Hoody
This is one of the best hoodies I own. I like it so much I bought a second one! Working outside in all types weather and a wide range of temperatures this hoody covers it all. On really cold days I wear it under a coat, but most of the time it is warm enough by itself. It is very comfortable without sacrificing function and durability. It runs true to size even after being washed.

Best Hoodie Ever
From the moment I put the hoodie on I loved it! Rain and snow beads off the cloth. There is a second pocket inside the huge front hand pocket for your cell phone or whatever you want to put in there.It is warm when it needs to be warm. Yet it breaths to keep you cool when it warms up a bit. I would reccomend this to everyone! I'm 6'1" 255 pounds and wear xlarge tall. This product is true to size. Did not shrink when washed. I just love it!

Great Product
The hoodie is perfect. Sizing is perfect for a 3xl. The generous sizing allows for unrestricted movement. Got caught in a rainshower and the water repellent feature is nice also. Overall another great product from Carhartt

Heavyweight sweatshirt
If you work in varying weather conditions, such as cold, rain, snow, this is one sweatshirt you need to own. It can be worn as outwear or under a coat, depending how cold it is. I work as a carpenter and have worn this sweatshirt about 20 times, its great. It keeps you warm and repels rain that would normally soak into any other sweatshirt. which in turn keeps you from getting wet and freezing you butt off. It is also one of the most durable sweatshirts you will every own. Wearing this while building homes and It has held up great with not even the slightest sign of any wear. I highly recommend this sweatshirt to anyone that works outside year round.
