This is the best coat for working outside in the cold. The big pockets in the front are easily accessible to gloved hands or even tools. The nylon lining easily slips past under layers better than the quilted jackets. I am 6'00" and 245 lbs, muscular build, and an XL fits me with enough room for a shirt and fleece under (I tried on a large and it fits comfortable but snug). Even room for a little shrink from repeated washing and drying. I had my first one of these coats for a decade working in the oilfield, washing it weekly and I still wear it. There is nothing that the combo of dawn and tide won't wash out of this fabric, even pipe dope. I now have bought about about 8 different carhartt coats from STP for gifts because of the great price. They say 2nds, but I have never seen anything on it that I wouldn't do to it on the first wearing. This is still my favorite style because of the great, big pockets on the front. For those who actually need this for dirty, hard work, it doesn't get any better.
