Rain Defender®

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.

Awesome hoodie
Awesome hoodie. Very warm. This winter I have yet to touch my Carhartt duck jacket even with the temps into the single didgets. It cuts the wind. Good protection from rain. The hood is bigger so you can put it over your hard hat. Nothing but good things about this hoodie.

Practical hoodie
I ordered this online mistaking it for another style with smooth lining and inside pockets. I love the smooth one and wanted another color. This one is nice but lacks the refinement and ease of slipping over fleece tops. Still a practical hoodie.

Great hoodie!
This hoodie is a replacement for the one I got about 6 years ago. I loved my old one but it was just worn out. I’ve had this hoodie for about a month and I like it a lot. It’s very warm and I really like that it’s water repellent.

I have a Rain Defender with the nylon lining. if so, shame on Carhardtt. I do not like the fabric lining in the ones I am seeing or in the coats. It pulls on your clothes putting it on and taking it off. Love the nylon lining. I have several Carhardtts but need to replace, very disappointed. Did they discontinue the nylon lining??

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.
