Just what I was looking for!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jen in NM from Santa Fe, NM on Monday, January 2, 2012
I purchased this jacket for my husband, as he is always tromping around out in the snow and ice in what I would consider less-than-adequate outerwear. I am incredibly pleased with how well this jacket is performing for him. It feels quite light, but once on, it's very warm. The tough outer fabric is very durable, but not as rigid as the older style of Carhartt duck, making it perfect for applications where ease of movement is necessary. The sleeves are also insulated, so they provide extra warmth to the most vulnerable part of the upper body. I bought the extra-large, so he could layer without problems (he normally wears a large), and despite the small amount of "extra", it does not seem to cause problems with bulk or misfitting. It said this jacket is a "second", but we've yet to find any flaws with it, cosmetic or otherwise! Overall, I'd say this was probably the best purchase I've made for my husband in a long time!
