It may be wet out, but there's still a job to do. This men's Carhartt sweatshirt is made of a heavyweight cotton blend that repels light rain. It has a thick sherpa lining for all-day warmth. The relaxed fit allows for easy movement. #10.5-ounce, 50% cotton / 50% polyester #Sherpa fleece lining for warmth #Rain Defender durable water repellent (DWR) keeps you dry and moving in light rain #Relaxed fit #Attached sherpa-lined extended hood #Full zip front with antique nickel zipper and storm flap #Spandex-reinforced rib-knit cuffs and waist help keep out the cold #Front handwarmer pockets with flaps for added security and hidden media pocket inside #Carhartt patch on pocket #Locker loop for easy hanging #Imported
Nice jacket, but really runs larger than true size. Fits me more like a coat than a jacket.
Washed to see if it shirk and I think it did, but very much. High quality zipper. Like the smooth satin material inside of the sleeves. It is very warm and somewhat wind resistant. Would recommend, but take note that is really does run larger than true to size.
Carhartt is constantly improving their designs, at the same time maintaining quality standards. First thing I noticed when trying on was how comfortable. The inside sleeves are lined with smooth "Quilted Nylon" such a great feature makes on/off a breeze (even with wet hands/wearing layers). The wind has a really tough time biting through with the Sherpa Lining, it keeps your core warm and extends under the hood which makes your beanie twice as warm. The Media "Cellphone" pockets fit my S10 with otterbox case like a glove, both are nicely fleece lined. The front pockets have a decent flap to keep stuff from falling out.

The sleeves are not lined with fleece / sherpa like the core & hood. Sleeves are just a regular sweatshirt with a smooth nylon (maybe waterproof) lining that crunches when I move my arms. Its an absolute no-go for me. This one goes in the return pile.
The jacket fits well and is very warm. it will come in handy on really cold days. Just be aware it is heavy. I haven't needed it yet so i can't really rate durability. Am giving a 5 because appears to be well made and therefore I assume it is durable.
My personal preference is these hooded sweat shirts lined with sherpa. I have been wearing them for a few years from different brands. I have always worn the denim jackets for work and play. I can move better and just all around more comfortable in the hooded sweat shirts over the denim jackets. The carhartt version is warm comfortable and easy to work in but I absolutely hate the silky crap in the sleeves. That stuff should be replaced with a warmer much more comfortable thermal lining or put some sherpa in there to. I'm sure it's a price point thing but I would pay more for the perfect hooded sweat shirt. The C.E. Schmidt version has the thermal lined sleeves and is my #1 go to hooded sweat shirt. I purchased 3 of these carhartt hooded sweatshirts with sherpa lining simply because the C.E. Schmidt versions don't exist anymore.
This is a heavier hoodie that will keep you warm in lower temps and can be layered. The zipper, classic Carhartt, is one reason I bought this since my last hoodie's zipper died. The sherpa lining is awesome for warmth and comfort, with polyester sleeves so no trouble in or out. Sherpa lining in hood, fantastic. Great hoodie.
Great quality hoodie. Thick, comfortable and durable. Have not yet used in rainy weather, but suspect it should do a reasonable job at shielding small amount of rain from soaking into the material. Size runs a little bit big, but not enough to warrant dropping a size lower. Get the true size for your fit and it should have a little extra room. If I had to pick on one thing, it would be that I wish the inside of the arms were the soft lined sherpa material, like the rest of the inside is. Not a big deal, but I would have preferred sherpa material cover all the inside. Great hoodie nonetheless!
