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.

My husband loves this vest, super warm and comfortable. He normally wears a size large, but it was way to big and he had to return it for a medium.

Great vest
Definitely lives up to the Carhartt name. When a brand that I've relied on for its durability becomes a high school trend for clothing I was concerned with the quality of products dropping. But this vest is toughness I would expect with the Carhartt label.
