Carhartt Sandstone Chore Coat for Men
I purchased my first (MEN'S SANDSTONE CHORE COAT/BLANKET-LINED STYLED C-02 DARK BROWN) six years ago and not a single component has failed, it shows wear and some fading from washing over the years that some would consider character. It has kept me warm at temps way below freezing and have hung a cordless drill on the right side exterior pocket without any failure in hardware of fabric. I liked it some much I purchased another 3 years ago just in case they discontinued the style. Today is the day I retire the original purchase but just try to take it away from me!

Just cant be beat
I purchased this coat from a local retailer back in 1995. I have put it through the ringer ever since. From my college days to working outside cutting wood to working for my employer delivering precast concrete structures. I have warn this coat pretty much every winter since and living here in the Catskill Mtn. area of NY, we get some pretty cold winters as well and I have never been cold with nothing more then a flannel shirt on underneath. The only way you would know that this coat is old is from the collar. Carhartt used to produce this coat with a leather collar and that trim has since worn off from wear and washings

GOT THIS COAT SATURDAY AND COULD NOT BELIEVE THE QUALITY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP IN THIS GARMET. FIRST CAHARTT I EVER HAD. MY WIFE HAS OWNED SOME IN THE PAST AND PICKED THIS ONE OUT FOR ME. THE POCKETS ARE REINFORCED WITH RIVETS AND THE POCKETS ARE AT JUST THE RIGHT PARTS ON THE COAT TO FACILITATE EASY ACCESS. THIS COAT SHOULD LAST ME QUITE A FEW YEARS. I PLAN ON PUTTING THIS COAT TO THE TEST IN ALL TYPES OF WEATHER AND CONDITIONS. THE BLANKET LINING LOOKS JUST LIKE THE ONES ON THE HORSES IN THE BARN. VERY COOL, AND OH SO WARM. THE COAT IS GREAT FOR THE WORKING GUY OR GAL. THANKS CARHARTT FOR SUCH A COMFORTABLE, GREAT LOOKING, RUGGED, TOUGH, DEPENDABLE, AMERICAN MADE PRODUCT.

Love at First Sight
When I first saw this coat it was being worn by a clerk at the local hardware store. The cut, the fit every thing looked great! He let me try it on ...and I didn't want to take it off!
I love the reinforced pockets for holding tools, screws and small parts. The inner pocket is great for holding my billfold and calendar. The upper vest pocket with the flap is the new home for my cell phone.
The only problem I've had so far is giving it up long enough to run it through the washer and dryer! Several washes - still looks great!
