This my second year hunting with this jacket and I like everything about it except it's breathability. The material lining the game pouch does not breath and it extends over halfway up the jacket back. So after a couple hour hunt through some tough cover my back gets wet from perspiration.
I wore this jacket everyday for 7 days hunting birds in Kansas. It held up great! I walked through a lot of nasty stuff and it turned back thorns and briars. Order your normal jacket size. Great weight. Not too light or too heavy. I was warm on the cold, windy days but not too hot on the warmer days. Plenty of room in the jacket to layer heavy shirts and thermals. Great range of motion for shooting. Very impressed with Carhartt's upland clothing so far.
