Carhartt Extremes Arctic Coat for Men
C-55 Warm Coat 12/11/2010
The coat keeps me warm, the fabric can take abuse, the pockets are large and the hood keeps me warm. The Velcro of the hood simplifies securing the hood for warmth. I spend a lot of time out in the cold. I bought the coat in New York 1/2/2008. I hope Carhartt has improved it. Last year, 2009 the cord that goes around the waste to keep the cold out, tore apart. My work around was to thread a new nylon cord into the cord passage. I realized the hard nylon could damage the fabric so I used the plastic locking mechanisms on the cord to hold the waist in a tight position. I wish i had thought to do that in the first place. Today 12/11/2010 the puller on the zip came off. I was able to replace it with a heavy duty paper clip which I bound in tape. I hope there are no more surprises. I still like the product because the outer fabric is so very durable. I don't expect I could find better even at a much higher price.

My Favorite Coat Ever
I got this coat in 1998 when i was in the 10th grade and wore it every winter up until this year. The only reason i stopped wearing it is because i can't find it. The only thing wrong with it after all those years were a few burn holes from wearing it while welding.I will def be buying another next winter and suggest anyone who wants to buy a longlasting coat do the same

Ultimate Winter Coat
Once again Carhartt did not disappoint. The extreme Artic Coat is warm, comfortable and rugged. Amazingly it is also lightweight! I am very pleased with my purchase and have told several friends. In my opinion carhartt set the standard for high quality, rugged work clothes. This winter coat is everything I was looking for and more. Thanks Carhartt.

I bought this same coat a few years back i can honestly say you can not destroy this coat. I'm a linemen I'm always working in the cold and this coat has done more than it's job. I've been snagged on things and it wouldn't rip I've been cut up on poles and it didn't rip. Most importantly it's warm never owned a better coat I give it 100%.
