Carhartt Quilted Flannel-Lined Sandstone Active Jackets for Men
There is no better jacket
This jacket arrived just in time for our record cold wave. The quilting is WARM! Mine is a very pleasant moss color. The knitted cuffs and waist seal out the wind nicely and the integral hood is handy, especially if you forget to bring a hat like I always do. The canvas duck outer shell is rugged and built for work, but I think it looks casual enough to wear anywhere whether you work outdoors for a living or not. I added push button cord locks to the hood drawstrings. The quality is unmatched. It is gratifying to see this level of workmanship and high quality materials being used to make work and casual clothing in a time when poor quality often hides behind designer status to boost profits. If you are hard working and value good old fashinoned quality, Carhartt IS designer status.

Perfect for the Chicago area
I love this jacket. I have always been envious of my guy friends that owned them--until now. As you can guess I'm a woman. I'm 5 feet 10 inches tall and with extremely long arms and this jacket fits me perfectly right off the rack in a men's regular large. Lately, when I order women's coats, I need a tall because of the sleeves and my height! Plus, this jacket is unbelievably warm and it has inside pockets. They don't bother with that feature in women's jackets, anymore

Best Jacket Ive Ever Owned
I have had this jacket for about 3 years. I live in Virginia, where the winters are not super harsh, but do get cold. I have had the jacket in weather as cold as 20 degrees, and feel it could hold up to much colder temperatures. I am a big guy, and Im happy I found a brand with such a wide selection of Big/Tall clothes. The main reasons I like this jacket are that it lasts, and its still as warm as when I bought it. I plan to buy from Carhartt again very soon.

Best cold weather work jacket
This has got to be the staple jacket in any tradesman/laborer's wardrobe. I have gone through a few of these over the years and I can always rely on the unbelievable durability and function of this jacket. It is the perfect match to my quilt lined duck bibs too. This fits more like a bomber style jacket would, only with a hood, it is by no means "slim-fitting" whatsoever. This fits true to size, but expect there to be plenty of room for layering underneath.
