Like it. It's big enough unlike some other brands. I'm tired of small sizes that are labelled 3xlt/4xlt. I'm 6'6" 270 lbs. It FITS Seems solid but no real use yet. Speedy delivery when other sellers wouldn't even ship it to Hawaii.
Carhartt quality is always better than the rest! BUT, the sizing is getting stupid! I have an older medium that fits perfect. I also have a newer small thats fits perfect. Now, this new small that fits like a large!!! Its very irritating. Before you ask-yes all three coats are different models. That shouldn't matter!!!
I wear this coat on a ranch year-round. It’s definitely my “go to” coat when the weather gets bad. I have many other jackets, but this one I trust beyond all the rest, when I’m dealing with cold, wind, heavy rain, etc... I don’t have the hood, but I often layer a hoodie jacket underneath it.
The extreme durability is obvious. Some might say it’s stiff, but I find that to actually be useful, because with the nylon-lined sleeves, I can put this coat on or take it off faster than anything else. Because I’m frequently going between indoors and outdoors, this becomes a very nice thing. Even with a bulky sweater, I can put this coat on in like two seconds.
With the collar up, it’s the perfect thing for riding around the ranch on an ATV in harsh weather.
The heavy-duty double-zipper is really useful for “watering the weeds” in bad weather. Pockets are deep and useful.
This is one piece of gear I trust in a serious way.
Good coat but do not buy the hood to go with it it dosent fit well at all
The coat was great and fit well. The only thing was i also ordered the hood but it dosent snap on the jacket well at all one side does and the other side is very loose. Called customer service they were not very helpful at all i was told to send the hood back and reorder one new one by my self they couldent exchange it it would have to be ordered that to me is very poor customer service. I recommend the coat but DO NOT BUY THE HOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE WILL NOT HELP IF IT DOSENT FIT ON THE COAT.
I received this jacket as a field test item. The reviews are my own and unbiased. Pros: Very warm, material seems tough enough to withstand lots of abuse, looks nice. Wore in single digit windchills with only a tshirt on underneath and stayed warm all day. Cons: This thing is stiff and I mean board stiff. So stiff that the hood will not lay down in the back. I washed it and wadded it up and wore it for a week but it is still as stiff as new. This makes it extremely difficult to work in. If you extend your arms in any way, it rides up and freezes your midsection, which kinda defeats the purpose of an arctic extreme jacket. That is if you can extend your arms due to the stiffness. The zipper is way too difficult to operate. It takes a couple of minutes to get the zipper to engage at all and then is still difficult to slide up and down. Summary: If you are taking leisurely strolls in the woods in very cold weather and want to look nice then this is the jacket for you. If you work strenuously for a living or want to wear it as a car coat then you need to look elsewhere. Trying to wear it in a car is fubarred. The same coat in another fabric would be totally awesome. Cordura is not the way to go.
My husband really likes his black Yucan extreme coat and matching cover alls. He works outside all day in snow, sleet ect. He said they are so warm he doesn't even need to wear his long John's under them. They are water repellant as well. The only thing I have to say negative is, order the next size up. This is the 2nd pair I purchased both coat and coveralls. The first pair I bought him for Christmas last year, he never tried them, he put them up decided to keep them put up until he wore his other carhart coat and coveralls out. This year his others had to be thrown in the trash and he got the ones I bought him last year out. Well I went according to his waist and inseam as it ask for, but they were so tight with clothes underneath he couldn't move around. Our son is slightly smaller than my husband so since we couldnt return them because it had been over a year since I purchased them we gave them to our son. I got on here and repurchased but bought a size up and they fit correctly.
Awesome coat, got it to replace my old brown traditional coat that I'd had for the last 12 years. I wanted to try this one since it had the extra rain protection and is billed as being the warmest coat. I have read alot of reviews on here where people have said to downsize...I wore a large in the old Tradtional Coat and bought a large in this one and the fit is only slighly larger, but just right. I'm 5"10 & 210 lbs. I think it is only larger so you have room to add layers and still have a good fit.
Well it is difficult to accurately rate it since the temperatures have been unseasonably warm and I haven't had the opportunity to wear it yet. The pants and jacket are stiff as they always are when brand new but will loosen with time and wear.
I work outdoors in the Oregon high desert. The jacket works well for both warmth and wind protection. I am comfortable down to 20 degrees with only a t-shirt under it. Anything below 20, a turtleneck is all that is needed to stay warm. Yes, i t is more stiff than regular duck, but it's not bad and worth the wind and rain protection. The only upgrade I would recommend is i wish they would put some quilted insulation in the outer pockets. Otherwise, it's a great work jacket. And as others have said, it runs a full size larger than what I normally wear (medium fits like a large).
Runs way large. I’m 5-11 and weigh 230. Ordered an XL based off size chart. Received jacket and tried it on. I was swimming in it. Ended up giving it to my brother who is much bigger than me (270ish). It fits him. That was better than going through the hassle of mailing it back. Cannot comment on other aspects of the jacket since I was never able to use it.
Lost a faithful customer of over 20 years with this coat. Its warm and does the job. But the quality is not on par with carhartt. Less then a month old and the interior seams are coming apart. Then I seen the made in Mexico. Never again Carhartt. I will find another American made product from now on. I will be shipping back today.
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 :(
