Carhartt Extremes Arctic Coat for Men
Nothing beats it
It can not be put into words how great this product is. Having served in the military, I have been exposed to temperatures of extreme heat and cold. Looking back, On those cold desert nights I wish i would have had the luxury of having this coat. What i do have is Michigan's Lovely winter wonderland. It's unimaginable how warm it is inside of this coat. In the blistering cold you can stand in the coldest of wind and you still feel nice and toasty where ever the coat covers. Be sure to also get the hood and a Carhartt hat to complete your package, cause even tho your body is warm, you dont want to ruin your experience by freezing your face off!

Just ordered a new one
After more than ten years this coat is still in pretty good condition it keeps me warm with just a tee-shirt underneath and I am by no means a polar bear. I used to work in a factory now I am a teacher and I wear this coat with a shirt and tie no problem! I am buying a new one because I can't imagine using any other coat and the old one is getting too beat up for work (small stuff - broken zipper, Velcro loose) more cosmetic than functional. I love all the pockets (6 in all) the two front ones are huge, keep your hands warm and won't let you loose the things that you put in them. A word to the wise GET THE OPTIONAL HOOD its an extra 30 bucks but well worth it.

Awesome Extremes Arctic Coat
I have had mine for 2 winters Honestly it takes about 6 weeks to break in, its so well made! Throw this on and you will be toasty in a matter of minutes! You'll be saying "what wind"? even on the coldest Chicago days! I can attest to that! Build with great windstopping! Great chest utility pockets and perfect chest area hand warmer or gear pockets! Honestly it could be your last winter jacket! Totally worth the break in time! Want to know how good this coat is? My friend who works for the Railroad bought it for me because every conductor and engineer has one when they run trains in the yard in the dead of night! You dont even want to know how cold that is! Keep toasty warm in this! Do yourself a favor this winter! Generous Cut too for pretty much any activity!

Perfect Cold Weather Coat
I have the tall version of this coat and it fits perfectly. The inside is very comfortable and smooth. the exterior holds up perfectly in rain, sleet, and snow while doing pretty much any type of work. I've done everything from simply wearing it to the office to chopping firewood in it during 10-30 degree temps and all sorts of conditions. It's held up outstanding...in some cases, nearly overheated me! the warmth is almost instant as soon as you put it on. As with any thick lined coat, the jacket is a tiny bit stiff, but by no means uncomfortable. Just don't expect it to be as broken in as a lighter weight jacket.
