Warm and tough -- like me ;-)

So nice of Carhartt to finally have a line for us outdoors-lovin' girls! This is a nice vest that has the typical Carhartt toughness but with a little girlie touch. I purchased the vintage rose -- *warning* it appears much lighter and 'pinker' in the photo! The color is much more a deep rosie-clay (think, Hawaiian Red Dirt dyed clothing), which was fine with me. The cut is true to size and does flair a bit in the hip area ('womanly' cut, I assume) with a longer tail to keep my. . . well. . tail, warm. It is a bit stiff but seems like it will break in softer with wearing. The 'sherpa' is also closer to a blanket lining. I did evening chores with this over a sweatshirt in 40 degree weather and was plenty warm. I also could find nothing that made it a 2nd -- looked perfect to me and the horses didn't seem to notice that it wasn't 1st quality ;-)
