Perfect hooded sweatshirt
I love the Paxton full-zip hooded sweatshirt. It's built with high quality, looks great, feels great, very warm. I give it my top recommendation. The Paxton's hood is much better than the oddly small hood of the Rutland, so if you don't require thermal lining, consider the Paxton for its spacious, normal-size hood.

Carhartt quality, no doubt
Another excellent Carhartt purchase. Comfortable and warm. My only recommendation is that you buy one size smaller. I’m a medium and the small fits me perfectly!Bethlehem

I do miss the old carhartt sweatshirts. The fabric was cotton just felt different. Maybe they were just reminiscent of fabric I was used to.
I've gotten used to and I like this new product line.
The carhartt sweatshirts do repel a lite rain. Feel like a quality thick sweatshirt. More colors I assume will be available with time.

A shopper on Dec 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The sleeve length will be 37 3/8 inches for a Large 39 3/8 inches for a Large Tall and 38 1/8 inches for an XL.
How does this fit compared to Regular Logo Hoodie?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Paxton Defender Material is thicker and is stiffer as well. The sweatshirt tends to puff out a bit in the belly area due to its stiffness and tighter/ thicker waist band. Also the sleeves on the Paxton seem to be a bit shorter and also have a thicker tighter band around the wrist than the original hoodies do. If your going for quality and durability go with the Paxton Defender material. If you are going for comfort definetely go with the original hoodie. Both are great!!

What color is the Rain Defender logo on the carbon heather sweatshirt? And on the black?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would have to say It’s like a clear stamp on the sleeve just above the cuff on the left hand side. You can see it but you but you have to look for it.
What kind of lining does this have? What exactly is jersey lining? I am looking for thermal ( I see the Rutland version ) but not the quilted lining.. but I don't know what jersey lining is.
A shopper on Oct 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is not a lined garment. However, the outside of the fabric is more finished/smoother feeling and the underside (i.e., the inside of the sweatshirt) will feel a bit more soft/nubby, as in a typical sweatshirt. Jersey is a textile term that applies to how the fabric itself is women.

Is this wind proof?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't say windproof. But it's deffently one of my favorite sweatshirts. I live in New Jersey and all winter long I wore this and all I had was a thermal and this and I was fine for most of the winter season. And I do construction. So hope this helped out.
Is this wind proof ?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I can't say it's wind "proof" b/c I haven't worn it in a hurricane- but I have worn it on the ocean in freezing 40mph winds and never felt a thing penetrate the liner. So from my experience I would say yes- but it all depends on your definition of wind-proof. I personally love it!
