Just bought this jacket and haven't even had it a day but decided to comment here. Mainly to update/refute an earlier review that almost caused me to pass on this jacket. The first review stated that this jacket lacked a drawstring at the waist, that's not exactly correct. There is a drawstring at the bottom but the tensioners are located in the back along the bottom edge. Easy to miss and a little tricky to adjust, but they're there. My only complaint is that the zipper on the pockets can be a little rough on the hands when sticking them in your pockets. Otherwise, I really like the style of this jacket and think it will provide many years of service both on the job and around town. Go check one out, I think it's one of Carhartts best new products.
I love this coat! I've worn it all winter from upstate NY to south Ar. Its warm and very durable it has held up to my work. What I've been surprised at is the fact that it self cleans. What I mean is i can get very dirty (red clay & black axle grease) and after wearing it a few times most of the dirt will be gone. Been in heavy down pour and stayed nice and dry. Just wish the coat had a hood. I really like the Inner-sleeve, rib-knit storm cuffs.
Great jacket. Light enough to not fill bulky but thick enough to keep you warm. The drop tail and cuffs on the sleeves are a nice touch. Have had this Jacket going on 2 years now and has kept me nice and warm all the way down to -25F weather with just a long sleeve cotton shirt underneath. It has repelled the snow and rain with out a hic up.
Still looks good and is holding up well. I would recommend this jacket to anyone and all my friends. Get complements all the time and my wife loves the way it looks on me.
I love this jacket. It passed the rain test yesterday. I got dumped on for 30 minutes while riding my motorcycle home last night. Everything under this jacket was still dry when I got home. My phone and cigarettes were completely dry in the pockets. My jeans were soaked through but from the waist up... dry and warm. Excellent job Carhartt!! This jacket is a winner!!
I have had my quick duck for 5 years now it has held up on my tuffest days at work. It is heavy enough for those cold east Texas winter mornings , but light enough to wear all day . Thanks carhartt for making such a great product .
When I first found this jacket in a local store, I was very excited about it. It looks really good and can even be worn out on the town. It is comfortable and light with some great features. I really wanted to love this jacket and did.....until it got colder. The shortcoming I discovered (and had not noticed until the temps dropped) is that this jacket does not have a drawstring in the waist. The cold air is free to invade your torso space unimpeded. This is the one big design flaw I have found in this jacket.
The front pockets are very nice. They are roomy and zippered which keeps any valuables inside. However, when you are walking down the street and put your hands inside of them the zippers tend to be a bit uncomfortable on your wrists and even cold if the temps or down.
I would also prefer if they had upped the insulation from 80g to 100g of Thinsulate.
I am tall and thought I was limited to shopping online at random well-known stores for their ever-changing, cheaply fabricated, tall styles. Someone introduced me to the brand, I went to the store and learned of their tall sizes, tried it on, and was sold.. I am 6'6" and around 230 lbs. the large tall fits perfectly.
I am 6'4" 275lbs and this jacket in a XXL was long enough in the body, but also had alot of room in the body. Also the inner cuffs were tight on the wrist and thr sleeve flares way out which is practical if your wearing this in the rain, but odd looking otherwise..which make it uncomfortable and caused me to return it.
I bought this jacket to replace another similar brand. I liked the style and the durable feel. However, the insulation used is not warm enough for winter weather. I tested it on Long Island at a temperature of -20F with windchill. Big mistake. I was disappointed. A down liner helped to keep me warmer. This jacket is good at 40F or three season only. I recommend for quality of construction. However, even though insulated, I do not recommend this as a winter jacket.
Just bought this jacket at Cabella's in Hamburg, PA. There's literally nothing bad to say about this. The fit is perfect, it's lightweight, repels rain or snow, material is soft and my favorite feature is the bi-swing back, which allows you greater movement with your arms and shoulders. Not yet cold enough for it but I can tell it will be my "go-to" jacket when the temp drops. Not only do I give this 5-stars but also two thumbs up.
We are glad to hear this great feedback! Thank you for sharing your thoughts, and enjoy your new jacket!

Best Carharrt Jacket I've owned to date!
I'm 6'3" and when I purchased the jacket, I weighed in at 290lbs. I purchased the XL tall and it fit perfect then and still fits perfect even though I've lost 40lbs! This jacket is extremely comfortable. Does not restrict movement in any way. The drop tail is perfect for covering up plumbers syndrome also. In my opinion, the best design on this jacket are the sleeves, which also cover the majority of the back of your hand. Awesome jacket!
I bought mine about a year ago and its held up great during all the abuse I've put it through. The material is just as strong as the traditional Carhartt stuff but much lighter and easier to move in. Its highly water resistant too, which is a huge plus. Like all Carhartt products it runs a little big. I'm 6'0'' and 185 pounds and the large is perfect for length in the sleeves and torso but it has a lot more play around the chest and belly than is really necessary for base layers or sweatshirts. Overall, a great investment and I'm very happy with it.
i live in Northern Michigan. Plumber by trade. I have been wearing carhartt jackets, and other carhartt clothing, for over 30 years. I've had numerous carhartt jackets and this is the best by far! I think the drop tail and extension on cuffs was awesome idea. I also like the insulation, very light jacket but also very warm and shell is strong! I just wish it didn't lose water repellency after about 3 washes. Keep up the good work Carhartt !
I started owning Carhartt products over 35 yrs. ago, and I have never been disappointed. Coats, Hooded jackets, overalls, and Caps, I still have that first Coat. This jacket looks and feels like its made with the same quality and pride.
Got it on sale in mid-summer and it is by far one of the greatest jackets I've ever owned. It looks great, even for more formal occaisions. Insulated, but not too much which is perfect for working outside in fall/early winter. Disappointed that it's made overseas, but it is still true to the Carhartt quality I have come to love. It hasn't been tested yet, but this jacket may very well be wolf-proof just like in the commercial.
I got the charcoal/grey LT. Awesome Carhartt quality. Thinner then the other Carhartt jackets and still warmer then any other jacket that has the same thickness. I'm not sure how the regular sizes run but the talls run a little big so the LT was perfect for me and I wear Xl. The back is a little longer which is nice! The grey looks good if your going to work or going out. Get this jacket!
