Carhartt® Sandstone Rancher Coat for Men
Favorite Work Coat
I have had this coat for a little bit over a year now and it functions just as well as the day i bought. I do heavy work in this coat everyday and it is great looking as well. I am 6'1 180lbs so im fairly lean and thin. The coat is a bit roomy in the midsection and will seem to bow out a bit, but it is nothing that the center drawstring wont fix.I am very picky with my fits and my clothes in general. Length is perfect, pockets are perfect, and i have to disagree with some former posts that the pockets should be higher. I think they are great where they are. I get countless compliments on this coat. i know it is still relatively new to the carhartt family, so please keep making this coat. Im actually contemplating buying one to keep in reserve, but i dont see mine wearing out anytime soon, so im not sure i will ever have to!

Most durable/comfortable work coat
This Jacket is probably the most durable Carhartt I have ever owned. It has very durable material and is excellent to work with. In Colorado weather it will be sufficient with a flannel on working outside as long as it does not fall below 25 F. Then it does not work so well. You need a down jacket. But, this Carhartt is very comfortable especially in the arms. It has good/average insulation. It is a much better fit than the other hooded versions #J130 or J141. Some of hooded versions felt too boxy and very restricted in arms. The material felt too stiff. At 5'10 and 230lbs. I have plenty of room to move around with a fleece underneath it with a 2xl fit. Definitely a coat I will recommend.

Great design with lots of options
This coat was a Christmas gift from my wife and it has quickly become one of the most durable and versatile coats I've ever owned. One of it's best features is the top load/hand warmer pocket combination. I love having hand warmer pockets but never liked carry tools and parts in them. This combo pocket design eliminates all of that. While it's a small touch, the media wire pocket is a very nice feature as well (shoveling snow is much more enjoyable with some music).
I only rated 4 stars in FIT because the coat seemed exceptionally long at first and took some adjustment to get used to. It was ordered and is labeled as a Large/Regular but has almost the feel of a Large/Tall. Be prepared for this when you order. I would happily recommend this to anyone looking for a solid chore coat with some deluxe features.

While this is a well made coat, I was a bit disappointed. First, the coat was not as warm as I had hoped. I bought this last fall intending for this to be my new winter coat and I had to wear something else when the temps dropped lower than the 20's. Second, when I ordered it I did not pay attention to pocket location. I like pockets higher up than this coat has them. Otherwise it was a typically well made Carhartt coat.
