My 6'7" big guy carries his height in his torso making length, even with tall sizes a challenge. This coat is a bit roomier than the Heritage Quilted Flannel-Lined Active Jacket of the same size and it's longer. He already has the snap on hood from a different coat so he's all set!
It’s worth what I payed for it, I would buy another and tell my friends, nice jacket , I think it’ll last a long time but only time will tell:) and it’s true to the size but maybe runs just a little bit big but not much , thanks carhartt . This review won’t let me change the fit on the page :(
I thought this coat would be too bulky to be as functional as my every day Carhartt. This was NOT the case! The protection layers are amazing for dealing with cold, rain and wind conditions on an open construction site and I have not sacrificed any of my range of motion! I'm certain this is the LAST cold weather coat I ever buy!
The Yukon Extremes jacket is certainly warm and wind resistant. The zipper has given me some problems but I am hoping it just needs to worked in a little. I would also note that the jacket doesn’t really breathe you will be warm and if you are working somewhat damp from sweat because the polyester is basically like wrapping yourself in plastic but it a good defense against the elements.

I really liked the jacket, I thought it was very stylish. Unfortunately my boyfriend did not like the style. He is looking for something more rugged looking. So we are returning the jacket and ordering something else. But still from Carhartt, of course.
I totally LOVE coat!!! I couldn’t be more satisfied with the quality, look, and construction of the garment. Extremely warm as advertised and wind and waterproof. Also, excellent customer service...I called regarding a sizing question and it was answered accurately. This is my second coat of this design(first one is 11+ years old) and it is evident I’ll get even more life from this one. Sizes for this model do seem to run slightly larger than suggested in the sizing chart, but mine had an excellent fit after its first washing. Now, to invest in a Yukon Extremes jacket when I get the extra money. Thanks again Carhartt...you knocked it outta the park with this coat and I wouldn’t expect any less from you!
I’m 6’2” and 200lbs. I at first ordered a large and when I received it, it was way to big. I returned jacket and bought a medium. It still has room underneath for multiple layers. The jacket is very warm and as expected it is made with superior quality material and workmanship. I expected nothing less from a carhartt product as they are built to last. I would have given 5 stars but the zipper is a bit cumbersome to operate since it has double zipper pulls and the jacket is a bit stiff which I expected due to it being 1000 denier nylon shell.
Warm, well-made jacket which will take a beating in the elements. The material is a little stiff but I guess that's what makes it so durable. I can see it lasting for years. I initially purchased a large, but it came up larger that I expected. The large would give plenty of room for extra sweaters etc in really cold temperatures, while giving plenty of room for movement. I like my coats to wear a little tighter. Re-ordered medium and it fits perfectly with enough room for a sweater. (I'm 6ft2in, 44 chest and 205lb). I've tested it in upper20s/low 30s temps and it has kept me warm so far. Will see how it fares in lower temps, but so far it is exactly what I expect from Carhartt.
I'm 5' 9" with a 32" waist and long arms but I was swimming in the medium I ordered last week. Also, it was much more rugged than what I was looking for. The shell of the jacket is really thick and doesn't move very well which would be excellent for high winds or snowcatting but since I live in VA and need a jacket for all purpose (yard work, standing at the train station, walking the dogs) this was a bit overkill. I was able to take my online order into my local Carhartt and they politely had this shipped back and recommended the Cryder jacket and the small size fit like a glove. Not disappointed in the Yukon Extreme but I definitely underestimated it.
Wore this jacket first time when my area hit 19-degree weather. It's not a very comfortable jacket only because the outer material is so stiff I felt like I was wrapped in a stiff tent canvas. Because the jacket is so stiff it doesn't mold well to your body and Puffs out not molding around your body to keep the jacket close to your body so there's no air pockets that could trap cold air.. It is an attractive jacket, and it is warm and well-made. I washed it thinking it would soften up a bit, but it did not soften up. There are other outer materials Carhartt should be able to use that are durable yet much more flexible and comfortable. It's fine if you're standing, but if you're sitting and driving in a car you feel like you're stuffed in an rigid astronaut suit. It is well made and durable. Would I buy the jacket again, I would say no; only because it's way more stiff that needs to be. Carhartt if you soften the material little bit then you'll have a perfect jacket.
