Carhartt Sandstone Sierra Jackets for Men
Extreme Durability, Well Made
I design large data centers and am frequently crawling around these sites during construction. As such, nylon and modern synthetic jackets just don't cut it in my field. Many years ago I witnessed the construction crews building my centers all wearing Carhartts. Once you buy one, you'll know why...they are outstanding jackets for the money and just seem to get better with age. I also own an oil-finished jacket from 'another' jacket company that costs 5 times what the Carhartt costs and it's not a bit better; it offered some hunting features I wanted (game pocket) but it's fit and quality aren't worth the increased cost. Carhartts just work...the fact that they're reasonably priced just make it that much better!

Dont leave home without this....
This was my first Carhartt purchase and I am hooked for life. This is by far the best jacked I have ever owned. The craftsmanship is superior and this jacket is made to last. The Sherpa lining makes this jacket a must have for those cold days and even those days that aren’t that cold. Wore this jacket at a football game where it snowed, sleeted and rained and never got wet or cold. I looked at the Duck cloth jackets as well but as soon as I found the sandstone ones I knew this was the one I had to have. After washing the jacket it looks like I’ve had it for years. I loved this jacket so much I had to go this winter and purchase the matching bibs. If you are considering this jacket purchase it you will not be sorry.

Sherpa Lining extremely comfortable
I work an average of 12-16 hrs a day outside at work. I went with this jacket by accident because they didn't have my size in the quilted lined jacket (J140). I couldn't be happier that I did. This jacket is great. Extremely comfortable and seriously warm. It felt a little tight in the waist when I first got it, but once I got used to the snug fit it was fine. I actually appreciate the cut now. I can access my tool belt with minimum fabric bunching up and in the way. I just got a buddy of mine to pick one up as well. He dumped his North Face jacket for this one.

love the Sherpa lining
I'm not in the construction business so I certainly don't need the superior durability of Carhartt clothing, but that doesn't mean I can't buy what I want. My only prior purchase from Carhartt was an insulated coverall that is tough as nails. I wanted something along the lines of a jacket for casual wear. The sandstone finish makes this noticeably softer than my coverall which I really appreciate. I bought the jacket in black to be a bit more stylish than the brown. The fleece lining makes it quite warm for a hoody-style jacket.
