This parka is amazing i normally wear large tall in everything Carhartt, i just went with the regular length and it was perfect, its a little roomy but i wear this ice fishing and put a sweatshirt on and its perfect.
So far it's great, keeps me nice and warm walking around in the cold. My only criticism is the placement of the pockets isnt a good fit, I have to keep my arms in less comfortable positions if I want to use them.
I bought this for working on rooftop units during the winter. I picked it up yesterday and got lucky enough that it snowed nicely today. So I threw on my artic extremes bibs this jacket and a light “inside layer” since I can be working on boilers in hot rooms too. I went outside during the snowing and ended up falling asleep for an hour I was so comfortable. I think I’ll be alright working when the temperature goes down. Thanks for the great products.
Sawtooth parka, trapper hat & arctic extremes bibs.
I live in Michigan and deal with harsh weather every year and this jacket is one of the first jackets that actually keeps me warm in the winter. If its above 35-40 degrees outside this jacket will make you sweat.
Amazing coat! I followed the reviews on here about "running too big" and ordered a Large when I am 6' 230lbs and very big chest. Fits just right without being baggy or excessive. The cuffs feel a little odd but it is because they grip to you a little bit to prevent drafts from coming in. Worth the money. I am a conductor and wear light shirts underneath and feel just fine. Very warm and amazing craftsmanship.
I was thinking I would get it a little bigger so I wouldn’t outgrow it and as a 5’8 165lb male the XL is very big. However I wore this coat wondering around campus in the 30°s and I was kept warm the entire time.
Wore it this morning with a temp of 29F and only had a polo on underneath and I was super comfy. Had I been wearing another layer I probably would have been too warm, which is what I was looking for since I'm not a fan of layering up. This does run very loose compared to other jackets I've tried as an XLT, but given the typical layers someone would want to wear underneath it allows plenty of motion without looking like a child stuffed into a snow suit by a first time mother. Can't wait for trying it out snow blowing this winter.
Nothing wrong with it, kinda boxy. The fit is for husky men im 6ft 190 the large is my average size and got the same in the jacket. I was swimming in it! I returned it im sure its cool for some people but it is not that warm at all its just wind resistance. I was expecting a little more warmth and customer service told me this was the move. Still a carhartt fan great gear otherwise. This jacket is just a big miss unless ur shaped like an ogre! Lol just make sure you refund me my money the return is in your warehouse!
Love my new Carhartt parka! This thing is warmer than any other coat I’ve had including Carhartt’s. The customer service lady was very helpful and had me take my chest measurements so the coat seriously fit perfectly! Not to mention they gave an extra ten percent off. So in conclusion I’d highly recommend this coat!
This is my new favorite coat by far, the style is great along with the hardiness of it. Most of the reviews are right about this jacket, RUNS LARGE!! I usually wear a medium-large coat, I bought a small and it fits like a Glove.
Actually purchased this coat for my girlfriend and she said she's gotten a ton of compliments on it. Ordered a size down but maybe should of ordered 2 sizes down. Has a ton of pockets and the fur part of the hood is detachable. She liked that the wrists had a stretchy fabric inside that kept water out and the cold wind. Expensive but an excellent investment. Planning to buy one for myself in the future
Let me start by saying this jacket is Heavy Duty! I wasn’t able to wear it because it’s huge, I normally wear size Large with all other Carhartt sweatshirts and shirts but the Parka is way too big for me to wear.
Most comfortable jacket I've ever had the pleasure of owning. A little on the pricey side but well worth every dime. The jacket is very big in every sense of the word but for someone like me (6'5") it's a welcome change for once, all the stitching, zippers and buttons are top notch fit and quality and doesn't feel like work wear at all. The XLT size for me is the perfect fit and everything I was looking for in a jacket.
This parka is outstanding! I would recommend this parka to a friend without reservation! Carhartt has done it again! It is warm, it is light, it is easy to clean and it looks very sharp. It runs large but that is to accommodate layering.
Great coat but instead of it being a true black like the image online, it was a navy. This is something minor that could have been fixed long before the image went online. Also the size M I purchased ran larger than a UK size Medium.
