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.

Great Heavyweight Sweatshirt.
I really enjoy this heavyweight sweatshirt. It’s true to size, and I wear it as warm as a lightweight jacket. I also appreciate that the fabric is “Quiet” when moving around, compared to other lightweight jacket materials. I do wish there was a version without the hood, but that’s me.

My "Go To" jacket for true value.
The Carhartt Rain Defender jacket is outstanding. Keeps me warm without weighing me down. It's very well crafted and holds up to any weather I have thrown at it.
Roomy pockets have plenty of room for my tools (I don't always wear my toolbelt!)and my hands stay toasty warm in cold weather.

I recommend it wholeheartedly!

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.

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.
