Rain Defender®

Rain Defender Jacket

Rain Defender®, Durable water repellent—water beads up and rolls off.

Rain Defender® durable water repellent garments are just as functional and comfortable while fishing, hunting, working, or standing on the sidelines at a football game in a sudden November rain. Water will bead up and roll off your sweatshirt, jacket, overalls, pants, and more, so a little rain won’t stop you from finishing the job without changing your gear.

How to Measure

Note: For best results measure over your undergarments. Use a cloth measuring tape.

measure men's coat


Measure just under arms and across shoulder blades holding the tape firm and level. If your chest falls between sizes, order the next size up.

Natural Waist:

Bend side to side and find the natural bend in your body; this is your natural waist. Note: It may not be the smallest point.

Excellent jacket
Excellent jacket! Owning a yard service company I am outside daily regardless of the weather. Kept me dry in the rain. Warm in moderately cold temperatures - around 20’s. It was a nice stop from the wind this fall also. I had no worries about its durability while carrying a backpack blower or having tree branches swipe against it. It cleaned up nicely when it got dirty. I would buy these for all my crew!

Rain defender.
I’ve seen this jacket in the wild a few years ago, and coveted it. Saw it on your site at a good price and had to get it. Only available in grey, better yet, that’s my color. Leave it to Cahartt to have the exact amount of pockets too. Was hoping it was a little warmer, not a deal breaker though, just have to layer up. Love the jacket, looks great.

A great jacket for spring or fall
I am a big fan of this jacket! I bought it specifically for fall weather in Michigan, which is extremely variable. The jacket is comfortable, stylish, warm enough, and is resistant enough to rain and wind. The only thing I didn't like was the velcro on the cuffs - would much prefer snap closures. All in all, it's an excellent fall or spring jacket
