This jacket rocks!! Simply the best.
I am 57 years young, done tours of duty in Iraq, Afghanistan , and Horn of Africa (Somalia) and have been provided with the best gear available on the market and this jacket rivals all I have worn. I am a gear/outdoor clothing freak and first look for breathability , durability, and then style. This coat rocks it on all fronts. I am a walking billboard for Eddie Bauer First Ascent clothing and won't buy another "welded seam" construction. They just don't hold up to the washing. I have washed my shoreline jacket 100 times without one smidgen of wearing. My two year old namesake grandson will inherit this coat. I wish it was made in the US, but I can't knock the workmanship. Well done Carhartt design team. Keep incorporating the breathability element into your products and send them to Outside Magazine. You would have won the jacket category with this jacket!

Great Jacket
This was not the jacket I was looking for but stumbled over in the store. My wife knows I am picky and she insisted on the purchase when I said I liked it. It is a great jacket for cool weather and stands up to the heaviest rain. The hood must be designed to wear some other head gear under it or else it blocks your eyes but water and wind are not a problem when wearing this coat. I wish I had chaps made of the same material.

Holy wetness
I don't know if I got a bad lot or what, but I get wet every time I wear this stuff. I have long depended on Carhartt for my work wear, but not for my rainwear apparently. I was very disappointed when this jacket started leaking in the shoulder seams and over the years has progressed to not even needing to wear the thing because it's just going to get wet. The jacket leaks, the pockets hold water and at the end of the day I am miserable. I wouldn't recommend these to anybody who works hard out in the weather. Try this one again Carhartt, I expect more from you.

Great jacket built for layering.
This jacket holds up to the elements. I have had it for 6 years, I made the purchase when it was known as a J162 waterproof breathable jacket. The hood design is oversized to fit over hard hats and other head gear because it was built for the working individual. I live in Utah and use it pretty much year around. In the spring and fall it serves as my rain gear and in the winter I layer a fleece jacket under it and it becomes my winter parka. It's my favorite jacket Carhartt has made.

great ski jacket
I had this jacket for about 6 years. Great jacket to layer under with warmer clothing. I also use it to downhill and at the lake. Useful pockets. I hope they continue this jacket so I can buy a new one if this one ever wears out. Leave the hood as is, fits great when needed.

Excellent Rain Jacket
My wife bought me the jacket for crane rigging. The material seems durable enough to last awhile. The jacket repels water nicely. I would advise getting a 1 size smaller than you would get for a shirt as they run large. I like the jacket over-sized as I will be wearing multiple layers in the winter.

Great Jacket
This jacket does exactly what it says it will do, keep you dry. It breathes to keep you dry from your own perspiration, keeps the rain out, and fights off the wind. I'm in the timber business so I am ALWAYS in the elements. This is my pic jacket on rainy days. It is NOT a heavy winter jacket for the snow. But is is great even in our cold Colorado rains. As long as the precipitation is "water" and not "snow", this is the ticket. It's the most rugged rain jacket I have ever owned, and wears great.

My Favorite Jacket
Great overall jacket. Has a real "boss" style. I was recently promoted to foreman and needed a more professional look. This jacket gives that appeal. Very comfortable but runs big. I'm 5'9" 170 and had to get a SMALL when I usually wear MED or LRG. Warm but would need a long sleeve shirt undernieth below 50 degrees. More durable than I expected. Tougher than any other rain coat I have. The shell is a little noisy if you're a Ninja but strong enough to withstand a nunchuck attack.

Outstanding Product
I was looking for an outer shell jacket for various outdoor sporting activities at all the sporting goods stores about a year ago. I just wasn't finding the whole package ---- durability, versatility, attractive design and good value until I walked in the local farm supply store and saw the J162 jacket. It beats all the competitors hands down, super functional with layering -- the best outer shell I've owned. Hiking, snowboarding, rigging up and derigging for a day of windsurfing in inclement weather -- the J162 is the real deal!

What is the coldest temperature this jacket can comfortably be worn in?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We do not temperature rate our garments because everyone has a different threshold for what they consider to be warm. This style is not lined for warmth but it is made of a heavy fabric and can be warm if layered.
Is the Storm Defender REALLY supposed to be waterproof? I bought one last year, may have worn it 4 times, and never wore it in rain until recently. Not only was I disappointed, but I was also soaking wet! I thought it was supposed to be a rain jacket. I was sorely mistaken. This has been the only Carhartt product that I have been completely disappointed in.
A shopper on Nov 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Our Storm Defender collection is waterproof breathable. Please contact us for further assistance. You can reach us by phone at 800-833-3118 Monday-Friday from 8am-9pm EST and Saturdays 9am-5pm EST, by Live Chat Monday-Friday 9am-12am or Saturday & Sunday 9am-9pm EST or anytime by email at just_ask_us@carhartt.com.
What's the difference between the rain defender and the storm defender?
ellin d on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Our Rain Defender AND Storm Defender products ALL have a Durable Water Repellent Finish (DWR) on the face, making water bead off of the fabric/garment. DWR makes these garments water REPELLENT. With our Storm Defender products, in addition to DWR on the face of the fabric, we also have a coating/membrane on the back to make it WATERPROOF.

The inner coating/membrane in Storm Defender products may start to abrade just a bit after extensive washing, but it is not a topical treatment like DWR that washes off over time. The coating is an extra layer that is meant to be permanent.
There used to be a lined version of this jacket, is it still available?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The lined version was discontinued.
Where can I buy a replacement hood for this jacket?
Adam B on Jul 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We apologize the hood for our Style J162 is not sold separately.
How in the heck do you secure the hood drawstring with the funky apparatus on the hood? Please enlighten me. Why didn't the put simple spring loaded toggles on the hood string? This would go a long way to quell the hood complaints. Zipped pits would be a great addition also. A pretty good work rain coat for the price!
Gomez on Nov 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This style does have a drawcord for temporary adjustment of the hood, but you are not able to lock it into place. To temporarily tighten it, you would grab the stretchy cord in front of the plastic barrel and pull it upwards. Then, use your other hand to push the plastic barrel back towards the rear eyelet. Again, this will temporarily tighten the hood but will not lock it into place.
Years ago I got the Shoreline Coat, which is the best rain gear I have ever owned. Do you still make it?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We apologize that the style you are interested in has been discontinued. Typically when we discontinue an item, size or color it is due to lack of sales. Although an item may sell well in one region, if it does not do well nationwide we are forced to discontinue that item.
Does it have pit zips? Mesh pockets?
Matthew R on Oct 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No pit zippers. Cloth pockets on the inside. Great jacket. Comfortable and dry. They are good looking too.

A shopper on Sep 23, 2016

If I get this Jacket embroidered with a company logo, Will it still be waterproof in that location?
nathan on Dec 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As a manufacturer, we do not recommend embroidering or otherwise embellishing the garment. Doing so can void the warranty. However, as we understand it, those who have done embroidery on this type of garment use a waterproof backing behind where they embroider. If you do not take this step, the waterproofing will not work in that area due to the pinholes from the embroidery process
Is there a closure (i.e., velcro tabs, snaps or method of tightening, such as a drawcord hem) at the jacket's hem ?
Jeff D on Feb 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It features an elastic drawcord hem.
Can you put this jacket in the washer ??? Or will it ruin the jacket ???
A shopper on Nov 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, as long as you follow the care instructions: Machine Wash Cold - Gentle Cycle - Mild Detergent, Do Not Bleach, Tumble Dry Low, Remove Promptly, Do Not Iron, Do Not Dry Clean
Do you need to retreat the DWR?
marc r on Jan 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This garment should remain waterproof 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.
Does this jacket come in Army Green color? I saw awhile back that it did??? Thanks
Sean S on Jan 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It comes in olive green.
what are the torso lengths and sleeve lengths for sizes small and medium?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The sleeve length in a small is 35 11/16 " and in a medium, it is 36 3/4." The center back length in a small is 28" and in a medium it is 29."
There was a previous version of this jacket that had a black and white logo, straight cut sleeves, and all black interior. Were there any other changes in the new version?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You may be referring to our old Style J175, which was an insulated Shoreline Jacket. Our J175 had a black and white logo as well as the black lining. We apologize that the style (J175) you are interested in has been discontinued. Typically when we discontinue an item it is due to lack of sales. Although an item may sell well in one region, if it does not do well nationwide we are forced to discontinue that item.
