I live in WI so we get some rough winter weather. I bought one of these in early high school to wear while camping in late fall/early spring then also ended up using it to clear driveways of snow and used it as a work coat at one of my jobs during college when I would spend an 8 hour shift outside during winter. After 8 years of use that jacket is still in amazing condition. I am currently on a job site in Boston and it was colder here than we thought it was going to be so I bought a second of these jackets since my first is still back in WI. My first jacket is in Carhartt brown and the second one that I just bought is grey and I like both colors. I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone needing something very warm and I would also suggest pairing it with a pair of Carhartt overalls if you are working out in snow and winter weather.
