Totally biased rating

Yup, totally biased. That's because for once, Carhartt delivered something that is NOT A BELL SHAPE! Kudos, this number is actually straight through the hips! It would flatter a stick figure, kinda make me look like a school girl.

Both brown colors are nice, especially the (curry-colored) Carhartt Brown, which looks more high-end than pictured. The sleeves are ample on both XS and Small (yes I return stuff a lot), as are the shoulders, which traded looks for comfort in layering. This is not an acrtic jacket, I think there's no insulation between the duck and the single fleece lining. But for one in North America this is more like a 3-season number that could see a lot of usage. One drawback would be the small size of both internal pockets, the fact that they are velcro-ed instead of zippered/buttoned, or the lack of any means to secure items in the hand warmer pockets. But I'm happy as long as I get to look like a school girl.

I feel that the dark brown offers a better fleece lining than the Carhartt Brown, just in my case perhaps.

Sue me : I'm giving it 5 stars based on first impressions only -- I haven't washed, or even worn it outside.
