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.

Best Jacket I Ever Purchased
I have purchased quite a few jackets in my life. By far this Carhartt Style # J130 Men’s Sandstone Active Jac/Quilted Flannel Lined is the best jacket i have ever had the pleasure to own. I bought it for protection from the extreme weather conditions where I live. From the moment I purchased it I was as comfortable as a baby in the womb. I was outside for 6 hours snowblowing mine and my neighbors sidewalks and driveways. I never once even thought about that it was 15 degrees outside. I am totally sold on the Carhartt line and would highly recommend it to anybody looking to keep warm when mother nature gives you the cold shoulder.
