MY BEST COAT EVER!
I'm very pleased with the coat. I have been wearing only the Carhartt Arctic coats for more than forty years and wanted to try something different. I really like the wear and durability of the Cordura. And the less bulk of the 3M™ Thin-Insulate. The coat has many thoughtful details throughout which makes it a very great coat!

BEHIND THE SCENES:
THE YUKON TERRITORY
My introduction to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory was memorable to say the least. As I stepped out of the airport into the inky black of a subarctic spring night, the wind was knocked out of me. I doubled over and coughed involuntarily. A taxi driver who awaited us saw my first impressions of what -50F really feels like. “Welcome to the Yukon!” he said with laughter on his breath, “Every first timer coughs on their first breath when it’s this cold.”
For the seven days, the mercury held steady around -25F, a veritable heat wave in that region. These were only the air temps, however, and these numbers didn’t reflect the added wind chill which plunged to what felt like far lower than the -25F the thermometer reflected.
As our crew began to explore the different valleys, settlements and farms, I kept thinking, how am I going to be able to stay outside and shoot for a full day - let alone five days all in a row? Having grown up outdoors in high altitude Colorado, I’m no stranger to cold - but this cold was much different - it felt dangerously lethal. After the scout, I knew I needed better gear for taking on the Yukon Territory, and thankfully, I didn’t have to turn very far. The product team set aside some samples of the new Yukon Extremes line that I quickly found indispensable.
Over the course of the week, I swapped between the coveralls and a combination of using the bibs and parka. The coveralls were perfect for the predawn hours and after dark when the temps plunged. I also used them when hiking through waist-deep drifts and in a thick, howling blizzard on a pass that serves as a portal between Canada and United States. The coveralls are bombproof - keeping all snow out and only dry, lofty air inside. The winds on the pass were sustained at 40mph, sometimes gusting to over 70mph, and everything the coveralls protected stayed perfectly warm the entire time.
The bibs were so warm that I often wore them without the parka to cover the top. When I did wear the parka, the warmth it provided felt like a heated blanket, especially with the fur-lined hood over my head on windy nights. I truly felt invincible in the face of Earth’s coldest temperatures. Towards the end of the shoot week, the cold-snap passed at last and temperatures, incredibly, rose above freezing. As the snow turned to slosh and fine drizzle rained down on us one evening, I noticed how the moisture beaded up and ran off. Unlike the old school Carhartt’s I grew up loving, these new seemingly space-age ones kept me and all the things in my pockets very dry.
After having spent two weeks in total ranging through the Yukon, it was a bittersweet departure. While I was ready to bask in the relative warmth of the Colorado sun, the Yukon was still holding on strong. We had made lasting connections with many of the people we met and photographed. Though the Yukon was the coldest land I had ever experienced, it was filled with the warmest of people.
