Another great Carhartt item

I love Carhartt for its durable fabric and findings(although I must say all of that was even better quality when they made their products in the US, but I digress) so I have a fair number. This vest is no exception. Quality materials, a good fit for work and casual wear. Having moved from the country to the city I now mostly use my Carhartts for camping (campfires won't singe this material) and for times working on friends farms and for around town. Yesterday the weather was a cool and windy 30° F and with a flannel shirt and lightweight cotton sweater I was quite comfortable running errands. As to sizing I have wide shoulders as compared to a smaller chest. I also have the Berkley Jacket and purchased that in the small to accommodate my wide shoulders within sleeves. In this vest I was able size down to the extra small for a closer fit to my trunk to keep me toasty warm. There is no quirky fit issues like I have found in some of the other Carhartt Jackets(the Canyon Sandstone for instance) such as hips cut so wide that the shoulders don't fit, etc.
