Great Jacket

Reviewed by PSYOP SGM from VA on Monday, October 19, 2015
I always have liked Cartartt's kit and this jacket is no exception. I bought it to wear during the fall and winter while riding my motorcycle to work. I'd yet to find a MC jacket that I liked the fit of and decided to give the Carhartt a chance.
Fit, I went with 2XL a, because I'm fat, and b, because I wanted to have the possibility of layering underneath. The jacket fits well in the waist though it seems a bit shorter in length than it looks in the photo. That could just be my gut forcing it up. The shoulders turned out to be broader than any other 2XL I've worn, which was surprising but not a deal breaker. The washed cotton fends off the wind pretty well and the insulation is warm and not restrictive. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the coat worked on my 34 degree ride to work this morning. Considering I'm cruising at 65 to 70 MPH on a naked motorcycle the jacket kept my core very comfortable. It would be nice if there was a way to cinch down the cuffs but other than that I'm really happy with this product. The finish is nice, typical Carthartt, well put together with some nice, though unexpected additions like interior tech pockets.
