I've had my J130 in Moss green for four years now. This jacket handles every type of cold weather we get around here and none of the *non stop* wind ever gets past it. It has two inside pockets, one zip and one Velcro. It's also got a heavy duty main zipper. For cold weather I usually wear it zipped up and hood on. One of the best things about Carhartt attached hood jackets is how there is plenty of room to ad a hat under the hood without having any restriction in movement. I've been wearing Carhartt for almost 20 years and it is the only brand I'll buy.
This jacket arrived just in time for our record cold wave. The quilting is WARM! Mine is a very pleasant moss color. The knitted cuffs and waist seal out the wind nicely and the integral hood is handy, especially if you forget to bring a hat like I always do. The canvas duck outer shell is rugged and built for work, but I think it looks casual enough to wear anywhere whether you work outdoors for a living or not. I added push button cord locks to the hood drawstrings. The quality is unmatched. It is gratifying to see this level of workmanship and high quality materials being used to make work and casual clothing in a time when poor quality often hides behind designer status to boost profits. If you are hard working and value good old fashinoned quality, Carhartt IS designer status.
I am a retired Merchant Seaman, I wore a coat of yours that was similar to this Coat for 20 years, they are fabulous. I worked on Ships all over the world, A lot of them were Tankers in Alaska in the Winter and every one knows that is as Cold as it gets. I was never cold at any time with this coat on while working on Deck in Blizzards, ETC. I would Highly recommend this type of coat if you may be working in any kind of COLD WEATHER They are great.
To be pleased would be an understatement. Im 6'4''' tall and lean so finding a winter coat that fits and is durable has been impossible till now. I have looked on dozens of web sites and countless stores looking for tall sized jackets that were durable enough for regular outdoor use. I found this jacket in a store and liked it so much I went home and ordered the same jacket in a tall size off the Carhartt website. It arrived quickly and fit perfect. Don't worry about ordering a size larger unless you need it because they're already roomy jackets. Im very happy and will be a returning customer.
I got this jacket right before I started college in 2004. I had heard of Carhartt, but had never used any of their products before. To say the least, I was impressed. I have used this jacket every winter since, and it never let me down. I have been hunting with it, worked outdoors, put it through some tough tests, and it never failed. The durability is unrivaled. I recently got a new coat, one without a hood, and am giving the J130 to a friend. Carhartt is the only brand I trust now for durable, long lasting clothes. Im a big guy, 6' and 300lbs., so the big and tall selections are nice too. I own many carhartt products, and they are all top quality.
This product is great. I have had one for 5 years and still holding strong. Wear it to work outside in and for casual wear. You will not get cold in this coat. Recently bought my boyfriend one because I know he won't rip it to shreds while fixing barb wire fences. Every chance I get I recommend the Carhartt brand.
I have purchased quite a few jackets in my life. By far this Carhartt Style # J130 Men’s Sandstone Active Jac/Quilted Flannel Lined is the best jacket i have ever had the pleasure to own. I bought it for protection from the extreme weather conditions where I live. From the moment I purchased it I was as comfortable as a baby in the womb. I was outside for 6 hours snowblowing mine and my neighbors sidewalks and driveways. I never once even thought about that it was 15 degrees outside. I am totally sold on the Carhartt line and would highly recommend it to anybody looking to keep warm when mother nature gives you the cold shoulder.
This is a great jacket. Keeps you warm and is very durable. I use it almost everyday during the winter. I bought a large/tall and fits me perfectly (I'm 5'11" 180lbs). The only this is, is that for the midnight color, it is actually much darker (closer to black). I don't mind though because its still a great jacket.
very duty like coat. its durable, warm, and flexible. i had this coat for a few years was received as a christmas present, the only down fall ive had i was out in a hurricane for 6 hours and it was drenched and became heavy, but it dried up fine.
This has got to be the staple jacket in any tradesman/laborer's wardrobe. I have gone through a few of these over the years and I can always rely on the unbelievable durability and function of this jacket. It is the perfect match to my quilt lined duck bibs too. This fits more like a bomber style jacket would, only with a hood, it is by no means "slim-fitting" whatsoever. This fits true to size, but expect there to be plenty of room for layering underneath.
This is my second one, I purchased my first about 10 years ago and finally broke the zipper. I will replace that, and use the 1st for anything working outside. the new one I nice enough to wear everyday casually. It's a great fit, warm, and comfortable. It doesn't ride up while sitting in a vehicle like some do. I'd highly recommend this coat.
The J130 is a very warm jacket that is generously sized. This jacket has Carhartt's flannel quilt lining which is among their warmest lining it is comfortable and doesn't inhibit movement. The attached hood is warm and well-made. The front hand warmer pockets are unlined.
My complaints with this jacket are fit related as someone of average height with a bit of a gut. The sleeves are too long for size (by about 2 inches in a Large Regular). I wear a 33 inch arm length dress shirt and the sleeves on a large covered the knit cuffs that are not supposed to be hidden on this style, would expect this on a Tall size but not a Regular size) and the back of the jacket is a bit too roomy for me bunches out. I personally prefer the fit of Carhartt jackets and coats with bi-swing backs and pleated elbows they are more true to size. I tried a smaller size than I would usually buy and it was a bit tight in the mid-section. From my experience with Carhartt products the J130 runs large for size, you may want to try this one on before buying it.
Great Jacket. fits excellent and is the warmest coat i have ever owned. I bought this based on a recommendation of a friend and i have to say that it is well worth the money. I wear it all the time especially when it is snowing since i can rely on it to keep me warm
I have two of these jackets. Both are excellent outer wear. The first jacket is about 12 years old and has been through it all. The second jacket was a christmas gift this past year and has a long hard life ahead.
This jacket is great for camping the warmth and durability of it is excellent great for the woods or beach camping and the hood is a plus for unexpected bad weather. (tip) if your using it in the rain alot an extra coat of Scotch Guard is recommended as the jacket can only repel water for so long on it's own
I got my jacket about a year ago, it was my second one. I grew out of the other one. But I LOVE my jacket. Its so comfortable and fits perfect. I can wear it on the coldest days and still warm. You can also wear it inside and still be comfortable. I wouldn't trade my jacket for anything.
Best cold weather winter jacket I have ever bought
I have been wearing Carhartt jeans for years as they are stronger fabric and last much longer than Levis. I have only worn the jacket for a week, but that is when the temp outside is below 30. Warm as toast. Also it is very easy getting in/out of the car and there are no issues with seat belt. When the hood is used it is like being inside I am so warm !!!!
Need one or two girly colors in the women's. A few of the colors look worn and washed straight from the retailers. They stain easily but hey, that's what theyre made for and it's bound to happen if you're the type looking to buy one in the first place. I'm just a laundry freak and wish I could have my cake and eat it too. ;-) I am a 29 yr old female, homemaker and mother of five. I have had a few of these, known many to own thier own and see those I don't know wearing thiers too. For the purpose it serves, you can't get too much better in comfort unless you start lacking in it's durability so I have to give it a thumbs up still for that. I'd have to say if you spend any amount of time outside doing any kind of activity, you NEED to have one of these. The sandstone is much more "giving" and to me, seems not to lack any from the regular but I'd have to own both to swear to it. Overall, top quality, durabilty, lifespan and most sensible for the true outdoorsman (or woman, like me)!
This jacket is very comfortable and warm. The lining is great, the sandstone finish is very nice looking and rugged. Great jacket for work or recreational puproses in cold weather. Tough enough to work, and stylish enough for casual wear.
he absolutely loved it! he color looks great on him; its an amazing fit (and he's a big man); and its the only jacket he needs at once to stay warm in our 20° weather we've been having. I'm definitely going to shop carhartt more often!
I have had this jacket for about 3 years. I live in Virginia, where the winters are not super harsh, but do get cold. I have had the jacket in weather as cold as 20 degrees, and feel it could hold up to much colder temperatures. I am a big guy, and Im happy I found a brand with such a wide selection of Big/Tall clothes. The main reasons I like this jacket are that it lasts, and its still as warm as when I bought it. I plan to buy from Carhartt again very soon.
I like to keep two winter jackets with hoods so when the time recently came for me to replace another hooded jacket, for me, there was no other logical choice but a J130. My J140 is warm, functional, and a great jacket, but I wanted something that was a little less utilitarian (no insult implied or intended) and more causal in nature...something I could have for casual everyday wear in cold weather. For me the J130 fits my needs nicely. It's Carhartt rugged, and warm and I expect years of service, but the micro-sanded/washed finish gives the J130 a finer look that, for me, makes it ideal for casual everyday wear. If you're looking for a jacket that blends Carhartt's trademark rugged dependability with a casual everyday appearance I recommend the J130.
This is a jacket that you will wear for a lifetime. It will most likely last you for a lifetime. I work on buildings and when it's cold, this jacket is a good choice to wear on the job site. I would defintely recommend this product to a friend.
December of 2008, I was shoveling my driveway and slipped on some unseen ice. Broke my leg and was unable to move. Was on the ice for 45 minutes before one of my neighbors found me. This coat kept me warm even with laying on the ice. The hood and length down past my waist kept the cold from the ice from chilling me. This was the best coat I have EVER purchased. Thank you so very much for the quality you provide.
I have bought this jacket for my son and also one for my daughter and it has been the best jacket I have ever bought for them. It has been over 5 years ago and they still look good. They wear them all the time and they have held up very good. I don't think you can wear them out. They wash up real good also. Shows no stains. I would definetly buy another one. My son wants the camo one for Christmas this year.
I bought this jacket and I live in Minnesota and I wore this coat with a hoodie sweatshirt under neath and I was warm at -20 degrees. I have yet to be cold in this jacket.
I would recommend sizing up so that you can wear a hoodie underneath. That will ensure you never get cold. On the warmer days or when I am working hard, I take the hoodie off and I then I don't get all sweaty. With the hoodie off the extra space acts like a bellows and ensures that you have a fresh air exchange....thus, you don't get all sweaty.
The sandstone finish feels broken in right out of the box. I liked it so much I bought the insulated (quilted) bib overalls to match.
This jacket is very well made and I love the deep wine color. Please make more of your jackets available in this color! However. it is a very heavy coat. I will use it for camping and other outdoor activities. I prefer the weight of the thermal lined for daily use because it is not as bulky. I just wish the thermal lined came in deep wine. Overall an extremely nice coat for cold outdoor activities. Fit was true to size.
This is by far the most well constructed jacket i have ever owned, from the tripled-stitched detail along the seams to the beefy zipper. I've been reading some of the reviews and most of them are spot-on. I'm a 2xl guy and i found that the 2xl is the most perfect fitting garment i've ever worn!. Definitely recommend this product over its' unworthy competition!
