Received these just in time for my first college bass tournament of the year and I'm beyond thrilled about them. They survived the test of 4 days of rain and never had any issues. Jacket fit perfect for me being 6'4" I ordered an XL Tall and am glad I did. There are a few flaws I would love to see in the next model though. First of all having some sort of neoprene cuff in the wrist with a thumb hole would be great when running across the lake just to keep the rain from going up your sleeve. another possible improvement would be to have the hood be on the outside of the jacket so you could zip it up all the way and not be forced to have your hood up. Other than that I was thoroughly impressed with the durability of the product and highly recommend it to any angler.
Bought this jacket just over a year ago and I want to throw it away. Have always like Carhartt but this jacket plain out fails. No matter how little or much rain there is I get soaked. I need a jacket that breaths and will keep me dry. This one fails in a major way. If I am tailgating at a football game or at work in and out of my big rig I need to stay dry.
The jacket is breathable and keeps out the wind. I bought mine a little big so it fits over my carhart pullover. That way it keeps me cool during a summer rain, and warm like todays chilly fall rainstorm. A very versatile combo!
