    I’ve had this Jacket for 5 years. It’s still in good shape but has some stains and some small tears so I’m ordering another. It doesn’t tear easy though. I’ve got caught on nails and it stops me in time to not tear. I use it for work and am not easy on it. I’m 6’8″ and the sleaves and fit is good for me (size 2xl tall). Make sure to order tall. I also use it in the winter with layers. Great for working during a snow storm. Stays dry and comes a little large so it will accomodate layers ie. Sweat shirt, flannel shirt and undershirt. because of my size it’s hard to buy something without trying it on. So if your tall, don’t be afraid to buy it, the sleaves and length are good for me and not many people are taller than me (NBA players excluded).

    I am 6′ 0″ 230 lbs and this jacket fits me perfectly in xl regular fit. I almost bought the xxl because that is usually my size for jackets but their sizes run a little bigger. also, I bought a Carhartt pocket t shirt in xl it fits perfectly. Hope this helps someone.

    A great original Carhartt jacket for all seasons except deep winter and arctic cold, but it’s on the large side – I usually wear medium-sized jackets and this one had to be ordered in small to fit.

    My biggest problem with this Carhart purchase is that they offer several different jackets that are similar in appearance, but are made from different materials and have different weights and insulating qualities. I tried to make sense of their offerings by reading reviews and product descriptions, but ultimately, just wound up taking a shot with this jacket. based on the photos. The jacket did look exactly like the photos, but I wanted more of a winter weight coat. This jacket has very little insulation. It was also extremely stiff. I did a little research and found instructions on how to wash a Carhart with vinegar and then tumble in a dryer with a tennis shoe, but then there is the risk of shrinkage. Since the jacket just barely came below my waste, I didn’t want to risk shrinkage, so that was out. Also, the jacket seemed shorter than it appeared in the photos. Of course, the photos showed the jacket worn by a 25 year old model in great shape, so I guess I shouldn’t have expected it to fit quite as good on my middle-aged, pudgy body. Kinda like when my wife goes to the Hairdresser with a photo of some gorgeous model with fantastic hair and then is disappointed when she doesn’t come away looking like that. I guess that’s another story for another time. Back to the Carhart jacket – Finally, I decided to return the jacket to Amazon and then visit my local Carhart store to find a replacement. At the store, I was able to compare and try on several styles and sizes until I found just what I wanted. Long story short: Carhart is a fine brand that makes quality merchandise, but it is very hard to buy any item of apparel on line. The last time I tried to buy jeans on line it was a real disaster. So my conclusion is that while it is not as convenient, it is hard to beat going to a brick and mortar store and actually trying on clothing before you buy. The whole experience wasn’t too terrible. The return to Amazon was painless and I received my refund within a couple of days, so no complaints. Just another learning experience for me.

    The media could not be loaded.

     I liked how Ridgid the fabric felt on this. Definitely feels like it would last a very long time and look great upon breaking in. The hood fit great and because the liner is so thin, you can layer very nicely underneath it. The zipper however, was awful. It wouldn’t go up and down with any ease and it felt like it was going to break or tear the fabric. Returned and grabbed another unit and it was the same thing. I have many Carhartt garments and if the zipper wasn’t an issue on this, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy it!

    Good coat, fit my boyfriend well. It has zipper pocket on the inside lining as well as a phone/wallet pocket on the other side of the inside lining. Plus it’s a carhartt that’s inexpensive, need I say more?

  7. The guy from that thing

    After 5 years this jacket is still hanging in there. Of course its expected being carhartt. Still keeping me warm everyday. It’s been through many wash cycles as you can see it being a bit faded from the original navy blue color. Being a diesel tech this jacket has gone through some abuse like oil and fuel stains and tar but just throw it in the wash and clean and fresh again. It does run a bit larger. I’m large and ordered medium and its perfect.

    I wear a 3xl shirt a 3 xl jacket so I got a 4xl jacket thinking that would be long enough and big enough I mean after all the size is a 4xl Big… I got it and it is smaller is all aspects compared to any of my other 3xl jackets and even shirts, it’s extremely short also, I don’t have some huge gut or anything I’m just an over all tall larger guy and like to have a little room to move with in my clothing, This jacket as a Xl 4 Big just isn’t “big” by any means, also pretty small/tight around the chest area, so if you work out at all or maybe got some extra chest meat, this jacket probably isn’t going to work well for you at all.

    I hate coats. They’re always too bulky, too annoying, too…bulky!!!! THIS is the ONLY coat I wear. Trust me. My family has tried to buy me other coats — and I’ve given those away. This is my third time purchasing this exact Carhartt coat. It’s nice and loose (but doesn’t feel like it’s the wrong size type of loose), I can move my arms totally fine in it — doesn’t restrict movement. I can sit and drive comfortably in it. The canvas is tight enough that it helps with light rain and colder weather without adding 500,000 inches to my size. It’s an awesome coat and as long as they keep making this model I will always buy it when the time comes.

    Apparently a lot of reviewers were upset to discover that this isn’t a cold weather, winter coat. I had a pretty good idea what I was getting into and I’m very happy. It’s a heavy cotton duck shell with a minimal thermal lining. It layers very nicely with a hoodie. It’s generously cut. I’m a full figured guy, generously configured if you will, so I appreciate that. If you’re slim you might want to order a size down. With layers I expect it to get me very comfortably through the end of winter, through the spring and into windy, foggy summer days at the coast. All that would have gotten it four stars. The fifth star is because it was made in the USA by union, United Food and Commercial Workers members
