Hardworking men and women told us they wanted gear with more stretch and recovery – and we listened. That’s why Carhartt Full Swing® is fully-engineered to improve the way you move. Built with stretch and articulation in the back, elbows, underarms and knees – while keeping that classic Carhartt look. That’s why you need to work in this gear to believe it.


Flex Elbow™

Swing that axe with the Flex Elbow™ for less restriction: it has an inside stretch panel and articulated seams on the outside

Mighty Back™

This bi-swing stretch panel between the shoulders provides instant recovery, so it moves with you throughout your workday – not against you

Freedom Gusset™

The Freedom Gusset™ under the arms helps you do a cartwheel or lift something heavy without your sleeves riding up

Rugged Flex®

This durable stretch technology is built into the fabric we use to make Full Swing® garments, so they never restrict you

Consumer Reviews

"For a fairly heavy jacket I was impressed by how much range of motion I had for my arms when wearing it. Made it feel like I was wearing something much lighter. Plenty warm for colder days in the Northwest. Makes swinging an axe, hammer, etc. easy."

- lemmur, Carhartt Field Tester

"This jacket is great for getting things done the range of motion is awesome when reaching or bending yet maintains a good fit with restriction."

- wreckerroy, Carhartt Field Tester

"I immediately noticed how well the jacket moved. The sleeves never ride up and the back doesn't bind or get tight. Great for splitting and stacking wood."

- sswalker, Carhartt Field Tester
