Outstanding,quality Sweatshirt
I was sent this sweatshirt by Carhartt to test. I work outside seven days a week,and I can say this is one FINE sweatshirt! I like it so much, I purchased four more of the Paxton in different styles! I like the fit, the cuffs stay where they are supposed to, the waist band and the metal zipper. I also like the cell phone pocket which secures my phone quite nicely. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the heavy weight Paxton Sweatshirt to anyone that spends their time outdoors. You won't be disappointed!

Loved this hoody but was very disappointed when the medium almost reached my knees....returned for small, hope it's still not too big. Don't know why carhartt changed their sizing, use to be perfect fit before.

Think BIG
I normally wear a size large in my outerwear, but this sweatshirt was HUGE. I sent the large back for a medium and it was still almost too big. I should have gone with a size small.

Comfortable and Warm
While I found the sweatshirt a little long for me, it certainly is a very comfortable/warm article of clothing. A few mornings recently I left home while it was raining and one morning in particular raining a lot more than I expected. The sweatshirt kept me dry and warm although my pants were soaked as the rain ran right off me because of the "water proof" properties of the sweatshirt. I have noticed that the zipper gets a little "sticky" when wet.

cool features on a basic sweatshirt
It's nice to have a sweatshirt that is warm, soft, and water resistant so if you get caught in a light shower, you stay dry and don't have to worry about packing rain gear all the time. I got a size L, but it was a little big around the mid section. I know Carhartt usually doesn't make size M tall, but it would be a nice option on all of there products. I'm 6' tall and 170lbs so I need length in the arms and body and sometimes things don't fit perfect. Not Carhartt's fault, maybe I need to have a few more cheeseburgers!!!

THE PERFECT SWEATSHIRT!
I am a big guy 6'3" 340lbs. I was worried about the fit, length /width, so I ordered the 3xl tall. I am incredibly satisfied with this product the fit is perfect, plenty of room and great length to cover the plummers crack. Carhartt is the best quality clothing company I have ever come across. The rain defender works very well, I spent a half hour in the rain the day I got it and it kept me warm and dry. It has a great lined hood that doesn't restrict mobility and keeps the melon toasty. I recommend this hoodie to everyone.

GREAT JOB CARHARTT!

Great jacket
I have worn this jacket about 15-20 over the past few month in many different types of weather it has worked out great. heavier than the standard sweat jacket and lighter than a coat. kept me dry through the rain. Hood works great. my only complaint is that it faded after three washes. I like black being black not off black/ faded

Very Happy
Really happy with the purchase. 5'11" 170lbs. and a small fits me perfectly. Washed it a couple times and it hasn't shrunk which was my biggest fear as there isn't much room left. Sweatshirt is comfortable, warm and does a decent job of shielding the wind. Only complaint is the wrist cuffs are tight around my wrists... like, really tight. The hairs on my arms are sore after wearing the sweatshirt and any attempt to stretch out the cuffs hasn't worked (which shows how durable the elastic is). Next time I purchase, I might consider a medium to see if there is more room in the cuffs.

Best hooded sweatshirt ever!
I've been wearing this hooded sweatshirt for about a month while working in all kinds of fall weather in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. I am really impressed over the fact that I can wear this in the rain without feeling cold and wet. It keeps me warm and dry as it repels the rain. The perfectly designed hood fits easily over my ball caps and even my bulkier knitted hats. I also like the fact that the hood does not fall down over my eyes even when I'm not wearing a hat and the drawstrings are pulled tight. This sweatshirt is also roomy enough to wear over heavy shirts and even a light vest if needed. The pockets are very roomy and strong. The waist and wrist cuffs are also snug and strong. The fabric is rugged and abrasion resistant. The zipper is Carhartt strong. It washes well and retains it's size. When I put this sweatshirt on in the morning I feel confident that I will stay warm and dry all day, even if there's a chance that I'll get caught out in the rain. I'd also like to mention that this heavyweight sweatshirt does not bind at all in the shoulders which is important to me since I have wide shoulders. I'm sure that I will get many years of use out of this rugged and functional sweatshirt.

Best Yet!
It was a rainy week in October when I received my Rain Defender jacket. This jacket out performed anything I have ever worn shy of a rain coat. I will add all of the Rain Defender gear to my work clothes. Carhartt you hit a grand slam with this one!!
Thank You!
