Great jacket

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Laura from NJ on Tuesday, November 15, 2011
I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and he LOVES it. He works construction and he will be working in an unheated house all winter as they build it.

He had no jacket or coat, so I spent an entire day poring through all the Carhartt options and chose this one. I wanted one that was not SUPER heavy, since he will not be working outside, but also a little more fitted that he could wear out and about and not look like he's wearing a Carhartt.

The choices were this one and a similar one with a collar instead of a hood. The collar looked nicer for wearing the jacket out. In the end, the hood won out since the purpose of this jacket was for his job and he will eventually have to work in the rain.

He hasn't worn it in the rain yet, so I have no idea how waterproof it is. I bought some special wash for it, and if needed I will buy some waterproofing solution.

So far he says it is very comfortable and easy to work in, and WARM! In fact, when his coworkers saw his new jacket, they all came in the next day wearing their Carhartts!
