Rated 4 out of 5 by Cardo111 A stylish jacket that will satisfy most
I am 5' 9 ish have a large neck and chest for my height so I went with the Large Regular. I really like the style of the J141, and the sherpa lining that even extends into the attached hood as well as the overall high-quality construction of this jacket. It fits very well up top and doesn't inhibit arm movement at all. I personally prefer the Carhartt's with bi-swing backs and pleated elbows, they fit me better. I also have a bit of a gut and because of that I tend to wear longer untucked shirts, therefore the lower front of this jacket is a bit short and a little tight for me and are my only complaints with this otherwise excellent jacket. If you primarily wear jeans, tuck in your shirts and are looking for a stylish lower-cut Fall/ lighter Winter jacket that is made well you will be very happy with the J141.

Rated 5 out of 5 by texmexfour Great warm weather gear
I have had this jacket before and liked it so much, I had to get another. The warmth and shield from the cold is outstanding. Very highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by krisanna80 Fantastic Purchase!
This jacket was the best gift I could have given my boyfriend. With harsh weather conditions such as the cold, it was perfect. The durability is outstanding also. He was overly pleased when he recieved this! Will be back for more purchases!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Niecie 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...
