There has been some changes to the rain defender that I really don’t care for. The zipper is the most annoying . The right side of the zipper won’t lay down and constantly rubs your neck when not zipped completely.
I’m 5’11” 172 lbs. I have kinda long arms or maybe just big shoulders So; I bought the TALL version of a Large . The lengths ( sleeves and waist are perfect: I ride motorcycles and even when bent over the bike : my wrists and lower back stay covered) - I almost want to get a MEDIUM tall of this jacket. I’d like it to have it be a wee more form fitting ( in the stomach ) so I could get another coat atop it… but that’s just me …
I love it’s warmth , thickness, liner and looks. My only very small complaint is ; after very gently use of hanging the jacket by it’s pretty stout hanging loop in the neck —- the stitching is prematurely starting to give - as in - it will be pulled out / no longer functional soon. Might try and stitch it back when that happens.
Otherwise - I’d grade this as the best hoodie on the market
I really really like it, but I measured according to the size chart and it’s still huge. I kind of wanted a cute, well fitting zip-up to wear out but I absolutely swim in it. If you order it big, know can be super uncomfortable to sit down when it bends and folds up, but I still like it and will wear it for yard work instead.
All in all a wonderful coat. Warm dry and fits well. My only real complaint is that the pocket covers should either have buttons or zippers to close the pocket. I work at a lumber mill and I have to dump out the pockets twice a day, saw dust is one of the most annoying aspects of the job.
Perfect fit and perfect warmth, have many other Carhartt products and have yet to find anything I've been dissatisfied with. Highly recommend, it's listed as midweight but has a good bit of heft to it. Way heavier than the heavyweight zip up that I also own. Should last several years and be plenty warm enough for West Virginia winters.
Very warm.The new zipper goes all the way up to nicely cover neck. 3 piece hood is much more comfortable I really like the theraml lining. Its makes getting the sweatshirt much easier to put on and take off . Very glad to have purchased it
They changed the fabric and the new fabric is awful
So disappointed they changed the fabric on this sweatshirt. My previous one is about eight years old and other than being obviously faded from washing it is still holding up just fine and the fabric is still smooth. I bought this replacement recently so I would have a cleaner looking sweatshirt and within weeks the entire front of the sweatshirt is pilled. I can’t believe how fast the fabric is breaking down and pilling up into little balls. It looks Horrible. Oh I can only imagine within a year it’s going to have holes in it. I wish they never change the design. I went back to wearing the old one again.
Very pleased with this product. As advertised, it is midweight. I have not tried it out in a heavy rain, but it does offer good protection in a light rain. I have worn it in strong winds and it does offer good wind protection. I like the loose fit and it is very comfortable. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
