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.

First Time I Ever Paid Full Price
This is the best hoodie i have ever purchased, and i paid full price for it because I had to have it when I saw it in a store. It is durable, comfortable, and the rain repellent actually works. I continue to buy Carhart products because of the quality and consistency in sizing. LOVE THIS HOODIE

Bought three more
Bought this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend last year. He has worn it so much that I got him another one in another color this year for Christmas. I also got one for my dad and his dad! My boyfriend fits into a large (tall) at 6'2" 225 lb for size reference.
He also has the rain defender heavyweight Paxton pull over without the zip that he loves just as much. I just think the zip detail is nicer.

Best working shirt out there
I bought this as a winter layer for working out in the field (Firefighter/Medic) and let me say this is better than any job shirt i've ever worn. The water repels off even after several washes. It looks professional and clean for work. It kept me warm on the nights where we were out on a scene in the middle of winter. Great sweatshirt for whatever you throw at it.

Trucker approved
Just bought it last week. I'm a truck driver and it's hard to find a sweatshirt that's not thin, as most are. I'm not a fan of the zip up part as I prefer my pull over hoodies, but it feels great so far

Love these!
We bought these for all of our crew last Christmas, everyone loves them! Just wish they also came in Hi-Vis colors as well, I definitely think they'd sell a lot of them if they offered them in safety orange or yellow! I know we'd definitely buy everyone one.

Will this sweatshirt shrink from washing and drying?
Gary B on May 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Gary, so i washed it and i can honestly say i always hang dry because im scared it may shrink. Then my husband accidentally tossed it in the dryer one time and it did nothing so i cannot guarantee you it wont shrink the 2nd time or it may do nothing at all.
Do you guys make this in USA?

I wear an XXL in T-shirts and other hoodies, but I have the Carhartt Shoreline Storm Defender Jacket and it fits great and it is a XLT with this hoodie should I go with an XLT or XXLT?
Jake H on Feb 11, 2020
Rain Defender Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip Mock Sweatshirt
Rain Defender Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip Mock Sweatshirt
Insulated Shoreline Jacket
Insulated Shoreline Jacket
BEST ANSWER: I would go XLT I think Carhartt runs bigger then most other manufacturers. Especially if the shoreline jacket fits in XLT. I have that same Jacket by the way and it is my favorite thing to wear because you don't have to look at the weather, no matter how cold it is or if rain comes, bring it!
How true to size is this product ?
A shopper on Feb 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I was worried that it was going to be a fitted sweatshirt by the looks of the picture so I ordered a 3xl and it is big. I didn't return it because I can add layers, but I should have stuck with my normal size of 2xl or xl.
Will this style sweatshirt be made in FR material in the future?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We will not have a mock neck in FR. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
When will the Carbon Heather in size Large be back in stock?
J E on Jan 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We apologize that the color you are interested in has been discontinued. Typically when we discontinue an item, size or color it is due to lack of sales. Although an item may sell well in one region, if it does not do well nationwide we are forced to discontinue that item.
This is the best hoodie ever made! A bunch of us would LOVE to be able to wear it to work, and your dark brown color is identical to our uniforms. Please, please, please.... Make this in dark brown. Is that a possibility? I'm ready to buy another gray one, but I'm holding off in hopes you'll release it in brown. You'd make our long days a lot more comfortable if you did.
A shopper on Jan 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
I had this same jacket for about a year and lost it and recently got a new one it seems different though. My old jacket seemed to be a thicker denser material. Was the way the jackets are made changed?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This style has not changed. Please contact us at 1-800-833-3118 for further assistance.
Alright so I own this sweatshirt and it's awesome, I just want to know what the small pocket inside the front pocket was designed for?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Awesome question! I use the small pocket to keep my cell phone secure in the front pocket. Makes it convenient to grab as i jump in and out of the truck during the day!
Is there a fleece feel or look to it?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: no, these hoodies are built tough just like all Carhartt products, there appearance is the same as you would expect of any cotton sweatshirt and they are quite a bit heavier than most hoodies giving them a feel similar to a well fitting coat with added warmth as well...I have several of them and would recommend them to anyone...my only suggestion would be that if you are a tall individual, I'm 5' 11", get your size in a tall because I think the regular sizes are a bit short for anyone similar to or taller than myself...Hope this answers your question and gives you a better picture of this product overall!
Why don't they make a quarter zip hoodie that is thermally lighned?
Matthew F on Nov 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
Does the rain defender wash off ?
Bill K on Oct 9, 2019
