Love this sweatshirt !
Keeps a modest rain away .. though will lose some of this functionality as you wash it repeatedly .. so take it easy. Still my favorite thing to wear if I am chilly .. very comfortable as well. Hood is the right size as well. Very impressed.

Like the fabric but the zipper is bulky. I have one from two years ago and it is smaller. I would like it more fitted.

Carhartt Sweatshirts really keep you warm on those Cold Winter Days. I love the Zip up front and the Pockets are deep to keep my phone. Plus they even keep me dry on the Wet Days as well. Will be buying one for my Family as well.

An honest review
Sorry for the length of this, but you should read it if you're on the fence about buying like I was.
Just got mine in the mail yesterday. I don't usually order clothing offline because in my experience it's never really the right size. Even going by the reviews on here, I figured they ran large as everything said, I'm a small guy. So I ordered a small. It's tight in the spare tire section. I don't really mind, but when you sit down ... it doesn't lay flat to your body and you have to either sit, look kind of dumb, and deal or unzip and be cold. As far as appearance, it looks fine. I will say I was slightly disappointed when it wasn't black. The black option is more of a faded black, like a shirt that's been washed too many times. I was also surprised that the zipper sticks like a son of a gun. I tried slow. I tried fast. I tried starting and stopping. I tried holding it taut. Still sticks in some spots. You would think a 70$ hoodie would have the technology to surpass these things. As far as comfort, it's a solid okay. It's not silk and it's not sandpaper. The overall comfort is a little messed up I think because of the "heavyweight" part. The fabric is pretty stiff, but I think that will loosen over time hopefully. The heaviest part of this hoodie is the hood. I was surprised to find that a 15$ hoodie from Sear's was thicker. Lastly, the rain defender is no joke. I don't play games, if you make a claim and have me spend almost a 100$ I want it to be legit. I opened the bag, slapped it on, immediately put my arm under a running faucet. Worked incredibly well. I was very impressed. But I pushed the limit and held it there for a while and it eventually did soak in. Altogether with everything I've said... Probably never buying Carhartt clothing offline unless I see it in person and they don't have the right size. I'm not saying Carhartt is a bad company or have bad products, I'm just saying that if I had know all of these things before I bought this particular fairly expensive hoodie I would not have done it. It's middle of the road for me so I went with 3 stars.

Good Solid consistent products always
The hoodies are cut large in my opinion but that is good. But I forget and get a size larger online and then have to exchange it. They have a good store in Chicago that is a little hard to park your car when you go there but it is worth the effort to stop in. I have had a dozen or so carhardt hoodies in my life and this rain defender model seems as good as ever. Have to wear a uniform at work but everything under top layer is carhartt.

How many times can the Rain Defender sweatshirt be washed before it will start to loose its defense?
A M on Mar 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Rain Defender retains 70% strength even after 20 washings.

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!

A shopper on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The care instructions are below:

Wash cold, do not bleach, and tumble dry medium. Remove promptly.

A shopper on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The hood is constructed of three separate sections. This assist the hood in laying in a better way.
To what extent is this product rain resistant?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2017
