An upgraded Traditional!
I owned a Traditional in duck. Had it for 15 years. This coat is like a highly improved version. Amazing flexibility, comfort and fit. One of the best purchases I've made.

Excellent Jacket
This is great jacket for those cold winter months. The Full Swing is great for those with broad shoulders or who do work that involves the need for unrestricted movement while wearing the jacket. Living in Minnesota this jacket had plenty of warmth for the cold days/nights. I would highly recommend this jacket. The size does tend to run a bit large. I am 6'4" 260 lbs and ordered a 2XLT. The only sizing issue I had was around the waist was too large. Other than that, I found the jacket fit very well.

Awesome jacket. Fits perfect. No break in period needed. Feels as if I’ve owned it for years. Super warm. Another review complained about the cost of $150. It costs $150 just to put Thinsulate in a jacket. I don’t see the issue. This jacket feels as if it should last many years. It’s a Carhartt, so I trust it will.

Not a "Christmas Story" Coat
Before I tried on the Full Swing coat at my local store, I tried on one of the standard canvas coats. I felt like that little kid on the movie "Christmas Story" than got bundled up with winter cloths by his mother. The little kids arms were so stiff that when he fell down in the snow, he couldn't get up, or even roll over. Then I tried on the Full Swing coat. Oh my, it was so flexible that I'm sure I could make snow angels in the snow if I fell down. I would definitely recommend this coat for anyone that wants to avoid the embarrassment of that little kid on "Christmas Story" that couldn't move his arms. Dave L.

Love this coat
This coat fit and acted as advertised. I like the freedom of the extra swing. I didn't rate durability because I've only had it a few weeks but knowing the durability of Carhartt I expect a long life and many years of service. Comfortable to wear. Warm, which is what I was looking for (it's winter) and it looks good.

Great coat but not sure it’s worth $150
First off before i write my review, i wanted to give it 5 stars on comfort and durability b/c for some reason, it wouldn’t let me. idk, but the coat is SUPER COMFY! I fell asleep in it. It’s a great coat and $20 more then the other Armstrong styles only b/c of the 80g thinsulate in it, which you think would be warm right. I loved the coat, it was super comfortable and i could move in it. The oversized front hand pockets have a thin layer of insulation in them - like a thin layer of fleece or something. It’s nice to stick your hands in there on a cold day and not necessarily need any gloves. The pockets are huge. I can fit a big sized bottle of Smart Water in it and still have lots of room to spare. I love the roomy outside pockets on this coat. I love the insulation by your wrists. So many other brand coats have that sleeve part out and then the wind goes up it and you’re cold. Not w/ Carhartt Coats - you’re wrist is protected and no wind is gonna go up your sleeve. I’m female, so i purchased a size medium which fits me like a large. This coat does run large. The large i tried on fit too but more like an XL. I had more length past my butt and it was roomier. So i guess if you’re going to be layering lots or want a roomier fit, get a large (i wear a large in female non-carhartt brand coats and an xl in carhartt female coats). However if you want a closer fit, go with a medium. If you’re not sure, then i highly recommend going to a store to try it on as this particular model does run large. It’s a nice loose fit though which i enjoyed.

As great as this coat is however, I’m not sure it’s worth $150. It’s not that warm for the bitter cold climate I live in. I’m in NY and our winters have been in the negatives this year and still currently are. I wore this coat when it was 30-35 degrees out, zipped up fully w/ a lightweight fleece sweatshirt on underneath along w/ a long sleeve shirt underneath the sweatshirt and i was cold. I dress as warm as i can underneath whatever i wear. I usually will have on fleece jeans or flannel jeans from cabela’s and then a long sleeve warm shirt underneath either a mid weight, or heavyweight or lightweight sweatshirt along w/ a Sherpa lined hat. I did all that - tried the lightweight sweatshirt w/ it first (equivalent to like a force extreme carhartt sweatshirt) and i was cold in 30-35 degree weather with it. So i tried a mid weight sweatshirt - same result. I tried the Clarksburg Sherpa lined sweatshirt by carhartt (female’s) and that is the only sweatshirt w/ this coat that kept me warm... but it was the Sherpa that kept me warm - not necessarily the coat w/ 80g thinsulate. The only time the coat kept me warm w/o having to layer or if i was wearing a lightweight sweatshirt was when ny temps were b/t 40-45 degrees but who needs to wear a coat w/ thinsulate in that weather - that’s not that cold to us New Yorkers especially for thinsulate which is spose to be more for cold temps. I know carhartt does not temp regulate their coats, but if you search the “Extreme” temp category, this style pops up in it b/c of the thinsulate. This coat is not that warm in bitter cold temps - sorry to say and that’s why i returned it. I really did like the comfort level of it. It’s very nice, but i don’t think it’s worth $150. I have the J140 (quilted flannel) w/ no thinsulate mind you and i put on the same lightweight sweatshirt as i did in this style, and guess what, the j140 kept me warm and dry while i was snow blowing in 5 degree weather w/ wind blowing snow. I was caked in snow from head to toe this past week snowblowing, but i was very warm and dry w/ the j140 which sells for $99.99 - now i can see why it’s carhartt’s most popular buy which also is in the ‘extreme’ temp category (usually listed at the very top of the page). Now that J140 is worth every penny but i’ll write a separate review on that coat later. Like i said, you’d think w/ 80g thinsulate it would be warm but i feel it just couldn’t stand up to NY cold. I think the coat would be better suited for mild/moderate temps. The only time this coat kept me warm was w/ the Clarksburg heavy Sherpa on. I guess i just expected more from this coat being it has the thinsulate in it. I think if carhartt was to bump it up to maybe 200g thinsulate, then it would be really warm. My northside boots are waterproof but they have 200g thinsulate in them and boy are they warm. Nothing penetrates them. If carhartt would add more thinsulate to this coat, at least 100g if not 150g or 200g, then this coat would def be warm and worth the price tag, but for me i’m sorry to say, it just didn’t hack it w/ NY winters. but the j140 sure did and still is. Who would of known after me trying so many Carhartt Coats trying to see which ones would best serve me in our bitter cold that it would of been a stiff j140. I originally wanted full swing from the get go but i ended up w/ the j140 b/c it’s wind/rain proof. (See my sep review on it)
