At first, I thought this jacket was the greatest thing since sliced bread. When in the rain, the water just SLID off of it, and I was way impressed.
After a little over a month, it started soaking in during rain. Now I do NOT spend time out in the weather. I'm talking walking from my workplace to my vehicle. Today, I had to scrape ice of my truck windshield. The outer shell of the jacket was SOAKING WET after a little over five minutes of being in the weather. And this made me extremely cold. I would expect much much more out of Carhartt. Very disappointed.
I just recently purchased a second one of these Jefferson active jackets. They fit great, are extremely comfortable and warm, and can withstand the toughest of climates and working conditions. Highly recommend!
I like the coat warn in -1 below wind chill. I was looking for a warm nice looking coat for winter Carhartt products are the best. This coat is good but needs improvement. It is the best coat like it I could find. If you zip the coat all the way up to keep the wind out There's not enough room for you chin if you tuck your chin in the collar. If you have your chin above the collar it chafes your chin. Redesign in that area would help. The draw string on the hood doesn't work well If you adjust the hood the beads used to keep the paracord from slipping don't hold. A strap or flap to cover the chin and mouth and close up the hood a bit when really cold or windy would help. I am glad I bought the coat it is the best like it I could find and would recommend it.
You cannot zip it up all the way up under the chin , to seal the heat in and keep the cold out, poorly designed, it seems like nowadays when I try Carhartt jackets on each one feels like it's a different size,I've been using Carhartt products I think for 40 years I have become very disappointed in the product here lately
All the jackets in the store were made the same way short zipper, I would love to have one these jackets but it's poorly designed, please wake up carhartt If you need my help feel free to send me an email, I started out with an old blanket jacket
This jacket is NOT water proof. It's not marketed as one. It's water REPELLENT. I work in a warehouse where occasionally I need to unload a truck on a forklift in the rain. Which usually means less than 5 minutes. For that kind of exposure to rain this jacket is perfect. If I had to work maybe on roofs or out in the field where I'd be outside for extended periods, this would probably not be the best jacket for me. I am on my feet in a very physical, fast paced wood shop for 10-12 hours a day. This jacket is BULKY. If you are a medium(38" chest,32"waist), you should get a small. I couldn't adjust the fit scale on my phone for some reason. That's probably the only thing bad about this jacket. It's marketed as an "active" jacket but the fit is bulky. I've had this jacket for about 2 months. I tend to get holes in my work shirts and various abrasions from tools, sharp materials like melamine, laminates, and rough materials like granite sometimes. The only signs of serious wear I see is the little carhartt patch on the front is starting to come off at the sides. I give it maybe another 2 months before it finally falls off. The pockets are outstandingly convenient, this jacket is very comfy and very very warm. But in Houston it only gets down to around 30-32 degrees at its coldest. Normally at around 40-50 degrees.
I have another carhartt jacket that fits perfect as an xl, so I bought this one in an xl hoping for the same fit but it fits a bit smaller than the other one. I went back to try the XXL but it was too big.
The bottom band around the waist is always up My back.!! Besides that it runs small. I get a lot of wrong fitting sizes with carhartt these days . Bought 2 exact same set of bibs .?? One is huge around the legs the other not .
I was looking for a new work jacket to replace my old trusty sandstone active jacket and really liked the look and feel of this jacket. I have a quick duck Jefferson traditional jacket that I wear as a non work "good" jacket and I really like it so I thought I couldn't go wrong with this one. I work construction and work the majority of the time with my hands above my head which is where my problem is with this jacket. I have yet to wear this to work but have been wearing around my farm doing my daily chores and every time I raise my hands or bend over and reach down the bottom of the jacket rides up to nearly my chest and stays there. It's not a fit problem, it fits great if I'm just standing around. I feel like the elastic in the waist band may be way too tight, if it were not the bottom would at least slide back down after it lifted. I really don't see me being able to wear this at work especially on colder days due to the fact that I can only wear it comfortably with it completely unzipped. I love Carhartt products and have had nothing else for the 25 years I have been working but I am very disappointed with this jacket and many of the newer products seem like you can never get 2 that fit the same.
