Carhartt Quilted Sandstone Jacket for Men
My favorite jacket
I have Duxbak and RedHead hunting jackets, and I have worn Key and Polar King work jackets. No contest, this is my favorite jacket for work outside. As tough as you would expect a Carhartt to be, it is not as stiff as the traditional Carhartt work jackets and easier to move in. And between this tough exterior that blocks the wind and the quilted lining and the elastic cuffs and waist that traps air, this jacket keeps you WARM. Get too warm while working hard? No problem, just unzip the jacket and it airs out quick. During the winter, this is my everyday coat. I can wear it most places I go through the week and can do anything I run into in it!

Best Purchase ever
I bought this jacket and I live in Minnesota and I wore this coat with a hoodie sweatshirt under neath and I was warm at -20 degrees. I have yet to be cold in this jacket.
I would recommend sizing up so that you can wear a hoodie underneath. That will ensure you never get cold. On the warmer days or when I am working hard, I take the hoodie off and I then I don't get all sweaty. With the hoodie off the extra space acts like a bellows and ensures that you have a fresh air exchange....thus, you don't get all sweaty.
The sandstone finish feels broken in right out of the box. I liked it so much I bought the insulated (quilted) bib overalls to match.

I got this jacket right before I started college in 2004. I had heard of Carhartt, but had never used any of their products before. To say the least, I was impressed. I have used this jacket every winter since, and it never let me down. I have been hunting with it, worked outdoors, put it through some tough tests, and it never failed. The durability is unrivaled. I recently got a new coat, one without a hood, and am giving the J130 to a friend. Carhartt is the only brand I trust now for durable, long lasting clothes. Im a big guy, 6' and 300lbs., so the big and tall selections are nice too. I own many carhartt products, and they are all top quality.

It's an excellent jacket
I've had my J130 in Moss green for four years now.
This jacket handles every type of cold weather we get around here and none of the *non stop* wind ever gets past it. It has two inside pockets, one zip and one Velcro. It's also got a heavy duty main zipper. For cold weather I usually wear it zipped up and hood on. One of the best things about Carhartt attached hood jackets is how there is plenty of room to ad a hat under the hood without having any restriction in movement. I've been wearing Carhartt for almost 20 years and it is the only brand I'll buy.
