I wear this jacket a lot . It blocks the wind good its warm , dry and has a lot of good features IMO . I tournament bass fish and use it as the top half of my rain suit . I like the collar. I have a beard and when driving a boat 60+ mph the rain doesn't get in my beard and then run down my chest under the jacket (a plus). The cuffs seal well enough to keep the rain from running up my sleeve another plus . The pockets are well thought out . The length is perfect for me . I wear an XL and it fits the same as my other Carhartt stuff. I keep a GoreTex jacket also in my boat but always use the Carhartt jacket . IMO for the price it cant be beat .
I have taken this jacket into some very heavy rain falls without a drop of water seeping through. The jacket is definitely waterproof without question. I am 6'1 and I purchased a large tall. My only minor critique is that the sleeves were a little too long but the actual length of the jacket is perfect. It's lightweight and breathes well with plenty of room to layer. Quality product.
Nice jacket. Fairly rugged. Not a light-weight summer rain jacket but good for cool/cold rain or wet snow. Sizes run large but we all know that's common with Carhartt. Plenty of room for a light sweatshirt underneath. My only complaint about the jacket is that the collar wouldn't lay flat and poked me in the chin. Had to install snaps to hold the collar back when not fully zipped. The hood on this jacket is another matter. It's terrible! The hood on my "medium" size jacket was about 4 inches too long (high), the brim hung down below my nose, and the storm flaps were a nuisance. Required major cutting and re-sewing by my wife (nice job dear, much better now).
