Good overall but not excellent
A good warm and comfortable sweatshirt. The big zipper pull is nice to grab with gloves on but gets easily caught in dryer vents and breaks off easily. Carhart has sent replacement zippers to my coworkers in the past but that is no longer the case. Instead of buying a new one. Based on cost, I will buy a second Jerzees and double up. My Jerzees is just as old and the zipper is still attached and works fine. Plus a fraction of the cost. The Carharts I have looked at are made in Mexico so it not like they are hiring USA workers.

Heart Doctor loves it
A terrific easy on and easy off sweatshirt. I use it for all my Ohio winter needs to and from the hospital, dog walking, and any short time outside uses. You don't need your parka unless you are going to be outside for longer periods. A great car driving coat because the fit is loose and gives great mobility. When it is cold in northern Ohio this ismy first go to coat

all purpose
Fit is great, fits like all other Carhartt gear. Layers well for winter. It does have a scratchy lining, I prefer my quilted lined hoodie from Carhartt to this one, over all a nice purchase. I am 5'5 and 175 lbs and a Medium is perfect. Zippered inside pocket is nice for a wallet or phone.

Huge!
It's a fantastic sweatshirt, and I took the advise of several other reviewers and ordered a size smaller but it's still 2 sizes too big!

Great hooded zip-front sweatshirt
I'm 57 years old and have had more of these than I can count. Usually comfortable but thin cotton and great for a quick run or to keep you warm from the car to the restaurant but that's about it. This is very comfortable but heavy material. I've not worn it in the rain yet though it is supposed to repel water. Much warmer than products like this I've had in the past and a nice inside zipper pocket comes in handy for small items. More expensive than most hoodies but I bet I'll have this one longer than my last 4 combined. Good purchase.

Better than Carhartt lets on.
I bought this to, in a way, replace a heavier coat I would wear a thin sweater under - now with this sweatshirt, I can wear it under a larger old Dickie's Eisenhower coat to keep it protected from damage.
Super thick, super comfortable, and very warm. Fits great in the car, not too bulky to wear around the house, either, although I will say it's not a slimming look. I wear a medium shirt, sometimes a large, but only a small Carhartt sweatshirt is a decent fit - the medium makes me look like I borrowed my dad's clothes.

The water-resistance is unmatched, though - I wore this for hours over a tee-shirt up Mt. Rose yesterday boarding/tubing/sledding, and even though I was COVERED in snow, this jacket kept everything under it bone dry and warm in below freezing weather - I'm not sure what they do to water-proof it, but it manages to keep the wind out better than any other sweatshirt I've ever used, too.

I plan to buy another - one for working, and another to just wear out when it's cold. A+++

Great Hoodie
This hoodie is really nice! I have it paired with the Carhartt sandstone traditional coat and between the two of these items, I'm nice and toasty on the coldest nights so far here in Chicago. The water repellency is fantastic as it hasn't soaked up water from the snow and has kept me dry in the rain. It also looks great and I wear it outside of work as well.

Pros: warm, water repellency works, durable, great quality
Cons: None

Was great until the zipper broke
Love everything about it, but the zippers. Zipper broke on the first 1. Bought a second and the zipper broke on that 1 also. Sister in-law replaced the zipper on the first 1, so I gave the other to my son in-law. Otherwise, I love everything about it!

Will it still be water-resistant if I run it through the dryer on high to get it to fit me? I'm quite small and they don't make these for women.
A shopper on Nov 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This garment should remain water repellent for the lifetime of garment however it may weaken after an extended period of time. This can also be retreated with a treatment such as Nikwax or Scotchgard. We do not recommend drying this item on high to shrink it since we would not know how the sweatshirt would react or how it would distort it.

How does the torso and arm length of this sweatshirt compare to the original fit Style #100632 Rain DefenderĀ® Rutland Thermal-Lined Hooded Zip-Front Sweatshirt?
