Typical Carhartt
Wow. As with most things Carhartt, suits it's intended purpose just about perfectly. If I'm going to criticize, for that kind of money I might make the shell thicker or out of a material a little less likely to tear on sharp edges. I work construction and I would have to be just a little cautious around metal edges. However, I liked mine so much I immediately turned it into a non work going out in any kind of weather jacket. I really, really like it. Thinking about buying a second one for rainy days at work.

Good quality work jacket
Bought this for my husband for work - although he’s currently furloughed, he says it’s great material. He loves the cuddles sleeve and likes the fact that he can pull the string tighter when I’m harder water. He’s a coal miner and stays freezing underground so we’re hoping this helps but will have to wait to see when he goes back to work! He seems to think it will be a great improvement in his work conditions.

Great Jacket,but
Love the quality and the functionality of the jacket, but the small is to small and the large is to large, Bummer I really wanted to keep it. I had to return it on both sizing attempts. Customer service was excellent>

Excellent! Perfect for what I needed!
Far and above what I expected. I used this to take the place of a nice rain jacket from another brand for field geology purposes and it’s suites me perfectly. I got the XLT and it’s slightly bigger than I expected but the extra room is welcome for layers since the jacket isn’t lined. Highly recommended for all!

Nice but
If I could change anything about this jacket it would be a little more lightweight and breathable if it wouldn’t decrease the strength integrity.

I need a replacement hood for the Shoreline J162 jacket. Do you sell the hoods separately yet? Are you going to sell them in the future? Are there any other hoods that would fit? I love the jacket, but if you make it with a hood that comes off, I really think you should be able to get a replacement hood! Please consider offering this!
Robert S on May 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We will not sell replacement hoods at this time. We will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
Does the jacket have a shiny finish?
A shopper on May 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: no it’s just flat black very durable and water proof
is this a good rain jacket in 60 to 80 degree weather or is it to heavy for that?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Pretty light jacket. However for 80 degrees I wouldn't be wearing that. I loved that jacket very good specially in the rain
Does this jacket have zippers on the under arms to vent?
A shopper on Mar 18, 2020

What is the total weight of jacket?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This style weighs 2.35-3.10 lbs depending on the size.
Hi I purchased a Carhartt shoreline jacket and am fairly happy with the quality of the jacket. But, just out of curiosity, the label says ‘spring 2019’, would that mean this jacket was manufactured in spring 2019, or that this is a spring 2019 version?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This will mean that your jacket was manufactured in Spring of 2019.
Is this jacket made out of Gore-Tex material?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This style will be an 100% Nylon Oxford Shell.
Can this jacket have a patch stitched to it without affecting waterproofing?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, this will affect the waterproofness of the jacket.
For the Shoreline jacket, is it 100% waterproof in heavy rain and will it last a long time?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I've worn the shoreline jacket in heavy downpours. It keeps me dry, and feels so light, that it feels like I don't have any jacket on. I've only recently purchased it, so i will find out about it's durability. However, the jacket is very well made....when you look at it closely, and when you put it on....you can tell that it is a quality product, and that they did their homework when designing it. I have other Carhartt products that are over 20 years old.
I have a storm defender shoreline jacket in the olive color. Do you make pants or bibs to match? I absolutely love this jacket and would like to buy some bibs to complete the suit.
A shopper on Feb 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Our Shoreline pants and bib's will only be available in Black at this time.
What happened to the red carhartt jacket?
A shopper on Jan 18, 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.
I bought this coat a couple of years ago and could not be happier with it. It has been washed enough times that the waterproofing is not quite as good as it was. It’s there a product carhartt recommends to make it waterproof again?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We recommend NikWax or Scotchguard.
So would a medium size hoodie fit with this medium size jacket or should you go one size up if you wearing a hoodie underneath the jacket?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I purchased a medium size for my son. He is 6’1” tall and weights 195 lbs. He is an elite athlete. He tells me a hoodie fits underneath the jacket. Snug not tight. He thinks a large would be too big.
I lost my hood for this can I buy just the hood?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not sell replacement hoods for this style.
How does it hold up to mild wind & Warmth?
Michael B on Nov 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Dude, this is the most awesome jacket I’ve ever had. It’s tough, you can clean it off with a washcloth. It’s wind proof, waterproof, and warm. It has a great zipper, buttons and Velcro. Built like a tank.

Is this jacket true to size? I know my dad wears layers during the winter in MN - he would normally wear a 2XL TALL- should I size up to a 3XL Tall?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Sizing runs true to “carhartt sizing” . I wear a Large in everything else, but carhartt I wear a medium. The body of anything they make is always cut so big that I can go down in size. I’m also slimmer/athletically built so I dont have the size to fill out carhartt stuff
Is the hood detachable?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes; the hood can be removed.
What temperature is the shoreline rated for?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not temperature rate our garments because everyone has a different threshold for what they consider to be warm. This style will not have a lining.
Does the tall sizes have longer sleeves or just a longer neck to waist length?
A shopper on May 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The tall sizes will have sleeves that are 2" longer than the "regular" version of the same size.
I've lost the hood is a replacement available?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We are sorry we do not offer replacement hoods for our rain gear at this time.
Looking at getting this coat for the North Carolina rainy days. I’m a tree climber so I need something very water proof and strong. Is this the coat for the job?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The heavy nylon fabric holds up well enough to sharp branches and bark, but rubbing up against wet foliage will expedite moisture penetration. A hard cloudburst let's me know in short order that the Shoreline is not waterproof. Fleece and wool liners will absorb a lot of misery for those of us who work outdoors and must stay out to get paid; regardless at the end of the day i'm more than ready to shed this jacket in favor of something — anything — that is dry!

Careful with the hood snaps, get a close firm grip on both sides of the hardware and pull slowly and firmly. The snaps are very secure and could rip through the fabric.

Sincerely, Dave
Is this good for the snow?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but you will need a little extra for warmth. real comfortable,
