Rancher or lineman, anyone who works outside can appreciate the cold-weather chops of this men's hooded jacket. Proudly , it's crafted with water-repellent and wind-resistant rugged cotton duck. The body and hood are lined with quilted flannel for under-the-covers warmth.
To start, I wish carhartt would stop trying to improve their incredible jackets like the Knoxville vest and bartlett jacket. They are the best, dont need to be updated. The version of this specific jacket I own is 15 years old, is the original canvas and I love it. These are the best jackets to buy and this model is a solid go to.
The duck quilted flannel lined active Jac is the best work coat of all time! The coats ability is beyond belief. The Michigan winters we face are extremely cold and harsh, and this coat doesn’t even blink at them. I’ve had my coat for over 6 years and wear it everyday in the cold fall/winter. The material is so strong and well put together that using it every day there are little wear spots on the coat. You have the normal wear spots around the wrist where you are grabbing things or rubbing the coat on a surface but you do not get holes of any kind. It’s because the coat is made to get used. The warmth of the coat is phenomenal. You can wear a long sleeve carhartt shirt underneath and throw the coat on in winter and be warm and functional, that’s how thick the flannel line of the coat is. A carhartt hoodie underneath the coat, and no weather is stopping you! The coat’s “active” title is really that. This coat doesn’t even feel like you have a heavy winter coat on, it doesn’t stop you from doing any job. You have a full range of motion no matter what you are doing, weather you are pushing, pulling, lifting, or swinging you can do anything in this active coat.
If you want a solid coat that doesn’t back down to any job in any weather, then this is the coat for you!
I'm on my second one of these, the first one wore out after many years of punishment. When it came time to replace it I decided to change things up with a new color but knew that I wanted the exact same jacket otherwise.
As strange as this sounds, this is the best jacket I have found for skiing trees. I've ripped a number of puffy coats and even non-puffy "performance" outerwear snagging a branch or taking a tumble and catching the jacket on sharp skis, poles etc. With my Carhartt jacket I never have to worry about whether I'm going to rip it open - these things are tough.
My one suggestion for this product would be to offer it with a double zipper. I used to wear this on horseback but had to stop because the bottom of the jacket (when zipped up) catches on the saddle horn. If I could unzip it a few inches from the bottom this wouldn't be an issue. These jackets are already essential ranchwear, the double-zipper would make them perform as well on horseback as they do on the ground.
I love this coat for my boyfriend. He has always had one. Every single time they wear around where the sleeves meet the wrist contrasting fabric. It stings out in the weirded way. You would think that the coat is rubbed on a tree frequently in that spot. Which obviously is not the case. Every jacket does this. It is a great staple though and my boyfriend is proud to wear the brand.
Something is wrong with this coat. The proportions are way off. I ordered a large originally and the waist was miles off so we swapped for a medium. I'm 5'11" and 200lbs when I ordered this. The waist did still does not fit, but is better then before. At the time I was a 36 waist size. The waist band is waay too big with no elasticity. The wrist bands are way out as well, but with the opposite problem. The arm is disproportionate to the cuff. The opening is about 1/3rd the size to the arm circumference. When you put your arms through, the cuff is stretched to the max with no give. You really notice this as you raise your arms above the waist as the arm swallows the cuff and rides up your arms. I had to bring this coat to a tailor to put proper fitting cuffs on because frankly if your driving or working it will drive you nuts. I don't recommend this coat, which is a shame. It seems well made in regards to material, but the sizing is just plain wrong.

they tell you this but for some reason I ordered an extra size bigger anyways well i had to return it i ordered it off line took it back to the store in mall of America and they took care of me no problem no charge iam 6' 200 lb and used their online measuring chart and was like 2 in away from the 2XL so i ordered the 2XL . yep to big i should of listen to what they said they are definitely pre-built for layers ording my xl now evry thing went smooth Carhart took care of me even though this was my mistake
The size on these jackets is just wrong and it's really not acceptable. This was a medium tall for my son. I take a large or xl. This jacket fits me easily and he is swimming in it. He is 6' and slender. It's not OK to just have your sizes mean nothing. The rating reflect that too big is not "high quality" and too big is not "high comfort".
I received the coat and was very impressed with the color, build, fit, and finish of it. I cannot wait to use it this Fall and Winter ( or maybe I can wait!?!). I closely inspected the metal zipper, a weak point in many of my other coats and jackets. It is “heavy duty”! It puts every coat I own to shame. Its too hot here in Missouri to break-it-in just yet, but I have started to tumble dry it with no heat and several “dryer balls” to help with “break-in”. I am very pleased with my purchase and plan on purchasing more coats as presents for a select few of my family.
Jacket is as pictured. Very well made, durable, warm and appears to be water and wind resistant. Sharp looking. It was warmer than what husband needed at this time, since he is not working outside as often as he used to. Based on that fact had to return a perfect garment for working in cold weather.
I BOUGHT ONE 10 YRS AGO FOR MY HUBBY. iT'S STILL USABLE. I WANTED TO GET HIM SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR HIS BIRTHDAY, SO I GOT HIM A NEW CARHART COAT. AND HE LOVES IT TOO. HE PASSED HIS OLD, BUT STILL IN GOOD CONDITION COAT ON TO SOMEONE WHO WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO BUY ONE FOR THEMSELVES. THANK YOU FOR THE QUALITY OF YOUR CLOTHES.
Got one of these a few years ago in a color you don't see often (and does not seem to be offered anymore), Blaze Orange. It stands out, especially in bad weather, and I've had a lot of people ask me about the color. I use it during the late fall and winter, and only on the coldest days do I need to layer. It runs a bit large and the only criticism I have is the elastic around the waist could be tighter, to help keep the wind out. Otherwise, this coat has held up extremely well. The inside pockets are also very useful.
This is my second J140. Bought the most recent one a couple seasons ago and its already wearing thru at the elbows and a couple of the seams on the sleeves. Also the black color has faded out severely in many places. My 10+ year old J140 looks better than the new one.
Overall I really like this jacket. I have really long arms, and this jacket covers them. My only slight complaint is that when you zip the jacket all the way up the hood stands up and crowds the back of my head.
I recently purchased a red jacket, like this one which fits me as a 4xlt should. Living in Pa we get some cold weather until spring gets here and this jacket has done a fine e job keeping me warm. I have been wearing Carhart jackets and vests for quite a few years. Have never been disappointed in in looks or wearability or how tough they are. I will buy more clothing in the future from Carhart.
I bought this for my husband, who works in construction. He had a specific need and I knew to come directly to the Carhart website. The material is great and sturdy for his type of work and I anticipate many years of good use. This particular jacket has the ability to be warm as well as functional, and the sleeves dont bunch up around your wrists and get in the way.
