I really like this vest. Great for when the weathers to warm for my Carhartt coat but cool enough for more than a lite sweater. I wear this over my sweaters to keep me warm in the mornings and can take it off later as it warms up. Being 5’11” I do suggest getting the “tall” as they run short.
Very typical Carhartt attire..... Rugged & Warm Very satisfied customer I'm a truck driver, make multiple stops every day, don't like driving around in big bulky clothing, don't like to have to "put on" & "take off" big bulky stuff all the time either !!! This vest is perfect, not bulky and with it thrown over a hoodie, I'm good to gooooooo.....
It is currently being tailored to fit me. None of your outerwear is slim enough and long enough to fit me properly, so every piece I buy from you requires 1-3 hours of tailoring, which adds an additional $20-$60 of cost to your garment unless I do the work myself. So until you create a tall slim pattern that fits people that are over 6’ tall and under 225lbs I won’t every be very satisfied with your product.
I seriously like this vest. It is warm. It fits well. It looks good. It is only a week old, and so is a little stiff. Actually, it is like wearing cast iron, but, like my other Carhartt garments, it is getting better by the day as it breaks in. I have a longish torso, and other down vests that I have owned always felt short on me. Not this vest. It is just long enough to feel like it is staying where it is supposed to be instead of riding up on my waist. The pockets are deep and well placed, also with the quilted lining that keeps them warm. All in all, a great vest at a fair price. I will use it for years.
I like it. It keeps me warm when worn under my winter coat and big enough to wear over my hoodies. It made a difference when we had -50 degree wind chills. I bought it one size bigger to wear over my hoodies
Goldilocks here: 3xl too big; 2xl just barely fits...where’s “just right”?
The best is exactly what I wanted. A tough do everything layer for the cold weather. The sizing seemed hard to pin down though. I initially ordered a 3xl but was swimming in it so I replaced it with a 2xl which only just fits. The disparity between the two size feels like a jump of two sizes not one. 3xl is very generously cut while the 2xl is on the smaller side relatively speaking.
Great Vest! It's Carhartt Tough! It's as warm as a down vest without the bulk, and it's deep lined pockets give comfort to cold hands. I don't expect compliments from the guys I work with, but the first day I wore this, my manager said, " Wow! I didn't know Carhartt made a vest! Nice! I want one!" Thanks to Carhartt, I believe this vest will last a lifetime.
I got a 4xl even though the site said to get 3xl and I’m glad. I have a big belly and it fits my belly well but there is a bit too much room in the chest area. Leading the zipper area to bunch and doesn’t look too nice. The vest is also super stiff but I imagine in time that will change.
As a mechanical contractor, been wearing Carhartt for 44 yrs. The black vest hides the oil, carbon and grease stains . I assume the brown would be better for the carpentry/ excavating crews. The online ordering from the great state of Kentucky went down flawless, shipping to Michigan.
