Im on my second of this jacket, my first one lasted about 6 years. I finally bought a new one last year because it was wearing out. The new one is still nice, but is wearing out a whole lot quicker, one of the elbows has a large hole and the other is wearing thin.
Could not ask for a better coat. Working in a lumber yard this coat meets all my demands. i really appreciate the cuff construction, between the tight cuffs locking out the cold, and the sleeves keeping out debris, such a great combination. The chest pocket is a God send when doing work overhead, needing to keep tools and parts close at hand. For those of us who prefer to layer and find a hood restricting, this coat could not be better or more versatile. Thank you for such a great product
I'm 5'7", 44" chest, 41" waist, wear size 36 jeans. The sizing of this jacket will probably fail 99% of users. As per the recommendation of many reviewers that stated it would run big I ordered a medium. Long story short the shoulders looked like I could wear football shoulder pads underneath, the hem line was about 3 inches too long, the arms were almost 2 inches too long, and instead of a slim fit it seemed like I could stash two footballs under the jacket.
Returned that one, ordered a size smaller. That one had correct shoulders and correct hem, but everything else was tiny; arms too short, I could not even zip it close by a long short.
The 'Medium' is more like a large+/extra large, the small is well, small. They missed an entire size in between. not to mention that the overall dimensions would be way too long, way too wide shoulders, ensuring it would look nothing like on the model pictures on just about anybody remotely close enough.
Living in Ohio the weather changes from day to day. It'll be 10 one day 40 the next with plenty of wind during the winter season. This coat exceeds all my expectations. I don't like bulky heavy coats and for it's weight it'll keep you warm in the cold and breaths nicely for the warmer days when a lighter coat could be used. With the sherpa lining wind is no match for this coat. I'm 6' / 185lbs so got the large tall. Fits perfect with plenty of room to move. Construction of the coat is bar none. It's a Carhartt and lives up to it's reputation. I've searched all over and tired many different brands of coats for the perfect coat to wear from cool fall days to cold winter days, my search is over! Thank you Carhartt.
ive had the sandstone ridge coat for 3 years now as both a work jacket and a town jacket(i bought a second so i have 2) and have used it for work which involves cow/crop farming general maintaince and a fair amount of heavy manual labor in my case... i also like the way it fits looks and feels so much that i bought another so i have a nice looking coat when i want to look sharp...great product!
The Sherpa Lining is great for Cold Weather jobs. I'm an electrician and can be outside in the middle of a New England winter. This jacket keeps me warm. Best winter coat I have ever had. Durability is also excellent. I'm not just wearing the coat during my daily trips out of the house I'm also using it at work which can be rough on my clothing.
I bought this coat for my son for his birthday and he loved it! He said it fit perfect and the color was just what he wanted. He said it is very warm also. Carhartt products especially the jackets and coats are made well and they last a long time. My son works in construction and he has several pieces of Carhartt workwear that he uses for work. Carhartt makes the best jackets and coats!
I bought this jacket as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. Was getting tired of seeing a grown man wearing hoodies everyday with sleeves that weren't long enough for him. This jacket fits him like a glove! Bought him the tall and the length was perfect both jacket n sleeve. Its not extremely bulky or fancy which is a plus cuz he's a manly man. I would definetly buy him another if this ever got lost or stolen (hope I didn't jinx it). Well worth the money.
I am very impressed with this coat. It looks good, wears like iron and is very comfortable. The sherpa lining is excellent for the northern Wisconsin winter weather and the drawstring lets you snug up the body of the coat so the wind doesn't remove all the body heat. Will by another one...if I live long enough to wear this one out.
this coat will keep you warm through the coldest times of winter... the sherpa lining is of top notch quality... not to mention that the durability rating is out the roof... amazing coat thanks carhartt..
My husband was given this jacket as a present several years ago and it is great. He wears it to work (rain or shine) and it just gets better looking (rugged) and more comfortable. I just throw it in the wash. I steal it every chance I get!
I bought this jacket for my son and he loves it. It is warm and yet not bulky. It is long enough not to ride up with activities. It has a nice, rugged appearance. We did purchase the hood separately and he is ready for it to arrive. Now my husband wants one!
Carhartt Designers hit a homerun with the C61 Ridge Coat. I am a fan of most Carhartt products but this coat takes the cake. The sherpa lining is comfortable and the styling is classic. It is not the warmest coat for below freezing weather but it is warm enough for most conditions. The fit is good, arm movement is unrestricted and the length is long enough for those of us with a gut. I prefer Carhartt jackets and coats with the bi-swing back and pleated elbows this coat has both. My only complaint is the inside pockets are smaller than I would like them to be.
I am blown away with this coat!!! i bought this coat thinking it would be good for the autumn months in Upstate NY. We're well into a frozen winter, -10 averages temps, and this coat is still keeping me warm. During the cold months of sub zero temps with snow I wear a base layer and this coat with my Carhartt Bib Overalls and I am just fine to work outside all day. The ONLY complaint I have is that the sherpa lining doesn't go down the sleeves, its the arctic quilt in the sleeves, which is nice too but... I like the sherpa; I think it traps more air and keeps you warmer than the quilting.
I bought this coat three years ago to wear during the cold winter months up hear in northern Connecticut. I wear this jacket from mid December to mid Febuary when it gets too warm to wear such a warm coat. It's great for wearing in old plow trucks that have holes in the floorboards and for snowblowing with the snow coming back and blasting you in the face. My friend spotted me in this jacket 3 years ago when we were plowing/ snowblowing and immediatly went out and bought one to replace his skiing style winter coat, his is still going strong just like mine.
After buying other Carhartt gear, I wanted a jacket for everday wear. This is the perfect jacket as it is not too bulky yet has lots of warm and a great fit. I can wear it both on the jobsite and in the office, and be comfortable with both. Quality, durability, warmth, and styling all equal past purchases of all Carhartt gear.
I love my jacket I purchased one from an outdoor store about 6 years ago and I love it I live in an area in NY where we get cold winters and I haven't looked back at any other coat after all this time it's still holding up but it is getting worn so I'm thinking of retiring this one but I will defenitly be getting another carhartt for the winter season I also have a lighter one for fall as well as a vest. Best durable jacket ever
I purchased this coat last year to replace the Carhartt Ranch coat I have had for about 15 years. The Sherpa lining of this coat is very warm. Comparable to the quilt lining of my previous coat. Here's to another 15 years; Thank you Carhartt.
I looked all over for this coat, it was sold out almost everywhere and i can see why. I replaced my arctic jacket that my son now has with this coat and it is perfect. when its not freezing i can wear just a t shirt and if it gets too cold just to wear one underneath a hoodie makes it more than warm enough. Hopefully it holds up as well as my old jacket.
This is my first Carhartt coat. This one isnt the one that I originally wanted. The one I wanted to get was the traditional duck coat. However when I went to the shop that sells these coats where I live ~ they had this one instead. I tried on several other coats similar to the traditional duck coat/quilted lining. But I kept going back to this sherpa lined duck coat. It just fit better and felt right. The coat not only is built to last from what I hear but the quality and weight of this coat is by far hands down world class the best. Outstanding coat by an outstanding company.Again this is my first Carhartt coat ~ I did also purchase a thick Carhartt flanel shirt along with my purchase. This coat is extremily warm ~ the best.
I love the purchase I made. I thought the price was very reasonable, for the comfort, and quality of the Sandstone Ridge Coat. I bought it for my boyfriend for Christmas and he said he absolutely loves it. The durability of it is also very good, the quality is awesome, and the amount of pocket space is a plus, it does keep you very warm on those cold days when you have to shovel/work outside! and the fit was perfect. I would and I do recommend it to anyone who does any kind of work outside, they are work coats, but they also look good to wear just as a casual jacket whenever its cold. The appearance does fit the type of jacket that it is. Again, I would recommend it to anyone!! =)
this was my first Carhartt ever and it is the one I reach for when it is very cold. nice touches like the longer tail, inside drawcord, and lined pockets. I can see this lasting a very long time and it will never go out of style.
Well designed and constructed. Fits well and moves easily. Very durable. Warm enough for the Southern US, and can add a fleece jacket underneath for really cold weather.
Breathes well in humid cold weather. Fleece lining is warm and comfortable. Large pockets, and the hand warmer pockets include fleece on the front side. It would be nice if the fleece were on both sides of the pocket!
Two generous interior pockets and a zipped outer chest pocket for cell phone or wallet.
I bought this coat in October of 2006 and I still have it! Other than the ends of the sleeves wearing a bit, this has been one of the greatest coats I've owned! I plan to retire it come fall, and try another.
This coat is excellent quality and has served me well this winter. It's great for cold weather (I live in Alaska and when i wear this jacket outside i don't need any additional layers underneath.) It's rugged and it keeps you warm but at the same time it's light enough not to be cumbersome or sweaty when worn indoors. The coat looks and feels great, Sherpa lining is very comfortable. The durability is unquestionable as this coat, like most Carhartt products, is built like a tank and i have no doubt that this product will last for years to come. The only issue I had with this coat was that it didn't fit exactly right... I bought a small and it was still just a little too big, but that's just 'cause I'm kind of scrawny. Overall, I'm glad i bought it.
I like the heavy duty fabric and the soft lining. It's not overly warm and isn't bulky making it a great coat I'll wear year round. The only thing I don't really like about the appearance is the shoulders are kind of pointy kind of like a shoulder pad cut.
I agree pretty much with everyone else in most aspects, so will save you from being redundant and get right to my one complaint: pocket insulation.
While standing or walking in the cold, with both hands in the pockets, the bottom front of the coat tends to “bell” outward just simply from the “hang” of my hands being pressed into the pockets. This belling tends to pull the cold wind up and into the coat. While the draw string 7 or so inches up from the bottom can ensure that the cold wind does not make its way into my torso, it does not help with the inside of the pockets.
The interior front of the pockets are completely Sherpa lined, the interior rear of the pockets are not, surely due to the coat’s interior Sherpa lining. The interior of the coat is Sherpa lined, but this lining stops roughly 2 inches from the zipper. This leaves about a 1.5 inch strip of un-insulated interior pocket area to rapidly get cold when in cold and windy conditions and your hands are in the pockets and the air is being drawn into this area from the belling of the bottom front of the coat.
While the sleeves seal nicely to the pocket openings, and the front of the Sherpa lined pocket effectively insulates the cold wind from the exterior of the coat, the interior most portion of the pockets remains cold due to the above. And the worst part is that this is the portion where your bare hands and fingers are curled up to keep warm, right at that inner most portion.
This is rather defeating really, and seems like simple oversight on the design of the coat. To get around this I either have to wear gloves while my hands are in the pockets (defeating in itself) or walk awkwardly to keep the front of the coat from belling.
A simple design solution would be to carry the coat’s interior Sherpa lining just another 1 inch closer to the zipper.
Still love the coat all the same, but fixing this would make it all the better!
