Purchased this as an Christmas gift my wife will be giving me then. Product is true to size, fits properly and the full swing design allows you to perform plenty of outdoor activities in not so good weather. The jacket is well constructed and I do not foresee any issues with that. The side pockets might take some getting used to as they are a snap of some sort.
I bought this jacket at a local store and after wearing it I had to leave a review on this site. This is by far the best jacket I ever worn. Worth every penny! Doesn’t fell tight and the freedom to move freely and stay warm is just spot on. Barely bought it and I still haven’t washed it so I can’t say anything if it shrinks or not but I really hope not cause it fits right! I really hope they make different colors of em like camo or brown but I’m still happy with my purchase and will definitely recommed this jacket to friends and coworkers.
Very well made, warm, comfortable with full range of movement. nearly indestructible and looks great!
I ordered the jacket for my son, he works construction and lives on a farm. It arrived in only 4 days. I ordered a 2XL tall for him, he's 6' 5" and weighs 195lbs. It's a little large, but it has room for layering, the sleeves and length are a perfect fit for his long torso and arms! He loves it!
I've been buying Carhartt for a few years, and have been relieved that I don't have to wear 'mountain equipment' anymore (I don't go to the mountains). Similarily, Carhartt has been the 'working man's' attire for some time, and with good reason. But there hasn't been something for the Urban commuter until recently.
In the last few years, the evolution of Carhartt jackets for people like me has gone in a great direction, and I'm super happy to support such a great company for such great quality clothing.
The Full Swing Steel fits me like no other coat I've worn. I'm 6'3 and 'lean', so I was a bit shocked when the Medium fit me like a glove.
Next, this coat works in 60F as well as it does in 15F - which I found out last week here in Denver. In both cases, a light cotton t-shirt or long-sleeve is all you need.
Lastly, the little details make this jacket - the re-enforced cuffs (great for slinging a backpack around to/from the office and the bus), the pocket configurations (perfect for cell/bus tickets), and even the improved drawstring clips.
I've only been through one light snow/rain, but don't have any doubts the canvas material of this jacket will stand up to whatever is in store this winter.
I got another compliment on this jacket just last night...
