Full Swing®

Move like you mean it with gear designed to allow for maximum range of movement through strategically placed stretch panels.

Over a century ago, Hamilton Carhartt designed workwear through feedback from the rugged men connecting our nation by rail. Carhartt Full Swing® was designed with feedback from hundreds of workers who wanted a better range of movement. With Full Swing®, every cut and stitch is designed to help you do what you do best. Jackets feature the Mighty Back™ bi-swing stretch panel between the shoulders for instant recovery, the Flex Elbow™ with a stretch panel and articulated seams for less restriction, and the underarm Freedom Gusset™ to prevent sleeve ride-ups. Full Swing® pants feature a comfortable gusseted crotch with an extra panel to increase your movement and take stress of the seams, as well as articulated knees with a 4-way stretch panel.

Zipper Broke On Thrid Wear
Got his jacket as my Christmas from my wife, I was excited to have it. Medium fit me prefect (6'4" 210lbs) the look was good even through I'm not liking the soft canvas Carhartt is using. Took the jacket to the lake and on the third morning the male end of the Zipper feel off sending the zipper and pull tab falling to the floor. As a Canadian customers we paid the duty, exchange rate and shipping to get this jacket, needless to say this is more than disappointing. In additional to this my wife felt terrible had to explain I appreciate the gift but its not her fault , Last time we order from the site sorry guys.

Great Jacket! Warm but not to warm fits nice without being bulky. I use to dread breaking in new jackets. This thing feels great right out of the package. This Thing Rocks!

Won’t be disappointed
I work mostly outdoors getting in and out my truck and high up into forest clearings. I needed something warm enough for the winter and raining seasons, durable for being up in trees, and flexible enough to be comfortable for all day use. I’ve used this for all of winter so far and it’s been amazing. Had a tree branch snap on me and hit me right in the torso and the jacket took pretty all of the blow. If you’ve owned Carhartt outerwear before, then you know. It does run big, especially in the midsection. I normally get an XL but had to go down a size for this jacket.

I'm 6'6, usually wear 37-38" sleeves... Chest size between 44-46.... I don't want it to fit too baggy, should I go with the LT or the XLT? And if I go with an LT, will there be room for a hoodie or sweater underneath?
