Carhartt Sandstone Sierra Jackets for Men
I just purchased this jacket as a replacement to the "store brand" jacket of the same style. That jacket I went through 3 with in just a couple years because the zippers keep falling apart. I figured it's was probably smarter to replace it with a Carhartt instead of wasting more money on cheap look-alikes. This isn't my first Carhartt I have 2 others, but in the arctic lining. One is old (it's a 100th anniversary year coat) the other is the same style (C003) only newer but that one too is over 10 years old. Both are still in great shape and extremely warn. So I know what to expect in the way of quality. I like having a jacket that's a little lighter and "less warn" for days that are not extremely cold. Not that this one isn't warn, I'm comfortable in this jacket even down to the single digits.
in all the stores the J141's were fitted with the lighter color lining (like pictured). But I could not find my size so on-line ordering was needed, When I first received my jacket I was a little confused because the sherpa lining was dark, almost black in color. Not a bad look at all, just didn't look right at first. The darker color sherpa lining seems a little more lofty, more of a thicker fur it seems. But now with this one I'm hoping for the same quality as my old coats, and looking forward to another Carhartt to be used for over 24 years...

AWESOME JACKET, Sadly poor experienec
I bought a jacket for my son, and intended to buy one for my husband once he picked the one that he liked, however, the photos on the site do not show some of the details that the jacket included, (or not very obvious in description).. The sleeves had gathers at the wrists like a childs jacket, I bought an x-lrg. because their stock in both color and sizes was so poor and limited, that not only could I NOT get his first choice? I couldn't get his 2nd choice in the color and size he wanted either. I decided to go one size larger to accomidate perhaps extra clothing underneath, and while I expected it to be a bit larger? It was like a blanket around him, and then it was short. I would think that an x-lrg. would take into account that the man wearing it may have a slightly larger build than a Large, (Perhaps a bit more length in the front to conceal an x-lrg tummy?) and that it would be taken into consideration while making the jacket. So, while the jacket nearly wrapped around him twice? The front did not even touch his waist band, and my son is a Large at best. I was quite honestly shocked that if he is a large, that even an extra large would not fit his torso, as he is NOT big and tall. The jacket, while wonderful in style, and construction, was a disaster, and much thought was placed into buying it. I had to return it. I also received it late, and it was a gift. They did assure me that I would be refunded the shipping fees, however? This really turned out to not be helpful, as I had to ship it back after all. I am out the shipping, and my son has no jacket. I was very saddened. These jackets are wonderfully thought out, and offer great protection in the elements, and look very attractive, I was very sad to know that I would not be able to find one from the company to fit my son. He isn't an odd size, The jackets are just oddly proportioned. The big and tall? Would have been like a dress on the poor guy. No happy medium. I worry now, that my next option? Will not be as nice a jacket, and that bums me out. I hope that you can find your size... And that if you go to the source like I did? That they have more of their own items to offer you. If you can't get it direct, where can you expect to find one? I haven't looked to see if and what they offer in the way of women's wear, I really would like one for myself! I love these jackets... It just sadly did not work out for my son...

I bought this jacket in Dark Brown last november. I use it for general use to hunting to working. It looks great, feels great, very roomy. Moving around in it is amazing. I work some construction during the winter months in Michigan and this things realy keeps out the cold. The attached three piece hood is very warm. A great buy.

Best Coat Ever
I have had this coat for a while now and I absolutely love it. I wear it all the time when its cold. I have worn it for all types of activities work included and this coat is tough as nails. Its extremely warm and comfortable as well. It cuts the wind completely, and in the GA winter all you need is a t-shirt and this coat and you're good to go. It also held up in the snow and subzero temperatures in Missouri. I would highly recommend this coat to anyone, its one of the best gifts I've ever gotten.
