This hoodie has been as tough as the job it's on every winter I get one. I'll never use anything else to be seen when it's still dark in early mornings. I've never owned, nor can find, ANYTHING I'd rather wear to work. It's professional, it moves with you, doesn't pull up in the back bent over swinging a hammer. The reflective tape is adhered, not stitched, to the hoodie itself so no need to worry about the heat of the dryer melting the visibility and safety away. Carhartt has always sold me on a great developed and researched product. Unsurpassed. Undisputed greatness. Couldn't recommend it more.
This hoodie by itself is perfect 6 months out of the year. On the coldest super cold days it works great under my Carhartt waterproof jacket. They run big as workwear should. I'm normally a XL but a L fits me perfect. It is a little thick for summer months even in the morning.
Its a heavy hoodie which is good. Its visible like it’s suppose to be the only bad part its that the inside is rough. This hoodie would be better if it had the fleece like the j140 jackets on the inside also if it had black bottom and ar the cuffs. Other than that protects from cold Alaskan climate.
Weather it be your construction job, your morning job, or even just getting the mail or the kids from the kids late at night. It does not matter the time of day or amount of sun, this jacket is great in all scenarios i have tested it in and between the thermal lining, heavy duty zipper and huge hood(great for those who wear hard hats) this jacket is bar none the best i have ever hard.
So i happy i was able to field test this product through the Carhartt Crew Platform.
This is not a typical sweatshirt, soft yet warm material. It was VERY rough. I am already disappointed that they don't sell women's high visibility hoodies, so I had to go with the smallest men's size .... which is a medium, so already, it was HUGE on me. Not cool. Then the material was rough and heavy, so I felt like I was wearing a kevlar vest that was 3x's too big for me. At least I was visible, but this wasn't what I was looking for. PLEASE come up with a better solution for women. I work outside at night, and I'm basically confined to wearing cheap vests over everything.
I have always liked Carhartt products, with this item though from the explanation and looks I expected the hoodie to be thicker and warmer. Like the last one I bought my husband. The fit and look of the hoodie are great though. Just wish it was warmer.
I have used this sweatshirt almost everyday on the jobsite and have been very happy with how warm and comfortable it is. It also helps that its a zip up so when the when it warms up later in the evening its very easy to just take it off especially in this crazy Illinois weather. Highly recommend for anybody
warm and comfortable I can easily wear this thing and it can be 15 degrees outside and still okay. I really love how the reflective tape is perforated and not all one piece so you don't have that unstretchable fabric
I'm a female truck driver. The company I drive for makes us wear reflective vests or clothing and I absolutely love this! Shipping was super fast and the quality is amazing! It's really thick to wich is great for winter and way better than the orange reflective vests my work provides us. I'm pretty petite 5'6 & 115lbs but there wasnt a males small so I had gotten medium and honestly love it! Comfortably baggy and just long enough to were it's not too long or doesnt look like I'm swimming in it either. I'm absolutely in love with this! Will definitely be getting the other one that isnt as thick for when the weather warms up again in spring. Thanks carhartt for never disappointing!
