Carhartt Sandstone Traditional Arctic Quilt-Lined Coat for Men
Excellent Piece of Gear
I was given my coat in 1993--yes, 21 years ago. When I got it, the thing was as stiff as heavy-duty cardboard, but over the years it's become very broken in and soft. I've worn it while working in 20+ below temps, snow/ice storms and rain. It's now faded to the point that you'd never guess it once was brown. In just the last two years it has started to fray at the cuffs and I've had a couple of unfortunate snags on the sleeves. I hate to have to get a new one, but it looks like it might be time to retire the current C26. Definitely worth it, though, as this is one excellent piece of gear!

Great For Both Work and Play
I work outdoors and in unheated warehouse space sorting and loading freight and had originally bought the coat for those purposes. Quickly learned that it was warmer, more wind resistent and easier to move around in than my than my other "recreational' gear. Now wear it for work and play. I am active in many outdoor winter recreational activities and the Carhart Coat is up to all the challenges of keeping me warm, while allowing the range of motion needed to support both my work and winter activities whether it be ice fishing, sledding, tailgating, hunting etc. The fit, quality, style and most importantly the functionality are of the highest levels.

I bought the coat 5 years ago and have used it beyond belief. Its a strong and durable coat that has kept me warm in conditions that would have otherwise killed me. This coat has never let me down and all my family is always asking to use it when they go on winter campouts or go out in the cold. When I rolled my truck the coat stopped the glass from cutting me to ribbons and kept my newborn baby girl warm while we waited for help to arrive. My dad and brother both own and love Carhartts. They have never let us down and I plan to buy only carhartt for the rest of my life.

Warm, durable coat, this is my second coat of this type, purchased my 1st one over 30 yrs ago and I still wear it....just wanted another color. First one was brown duck, this one is green, would have liked red or navy. Long hip length coat keeps lower back warm, water repellency excellent, also purchased hood, fantastic wind blocker and very warm in frigid temps with extreme wind chill temps, knit cuffs keep wind and precip from going up sleeves. Use for work and pleasure work conditions constantly change. Am a truck driver hauling hazardous materials....many load sites are in Port Newark and Port of Phila along river which can be very extreme. Excellent coat in reducing static charge build up common in other non carhartt coats.
