Carhartt Thermal-Lined Hooded Zip-Front Sweatshirts for Men
One of the best Hoody I've ever purchased.
I really like this hoody. Its kept me warm throughout Fall of 2013 through Winter 2014. I'm pretty much warm all the time, so I needed a lightweight hood/jacket-style and this fits the bill. Definitely better than other sweaters I've worn. The durability and the quality is pretty great even after several washes. It definitely has retain its shape over time. I'm 5'11", roughly 148lbs and my arm-length is about 22-23" and the sleeves on these are slightly short, especially when I have to bend over to get something. I hope they updated this on the new hoody. The pockets didn't mesh well for me for fear of stuff falling out. Other than that, I really love this hoody!

not 100% what I expected
I own many carhartt things and I ordered this sweatshirt because its a heavyweight and its cold where I live. It looks really good. It has a pretty decent inside pocket on the left side. It can fit a android or iPhone easily. The sweatshirt fits me fine. I went off the carhartt fitting sizes. The only bad thing in the fitting is that the bottom is to elastic and if you bend over it will roll up to your back, and there it will stay. After wearing and using the sweatshirt for 4 days I noticed 2 inch section on my right sleeve that the seam had come undone. The inside thermal protection does keep me warm but if you wear a short sleeve shirt under it the thermal lining feels rough on the skin. Overall its a good warm sweatshirt. It just feels weird on ur skin but if its cold enough you won't be wearing a short sleeve, and I think I got a defective sweatshirt.

Bad luck or change in manufacturing process
I have been buying this product for at least 10 to 15 years and have been completely satisfied with it. Best on market in my opinion. Very warm, very durable.
I bought a new one about 2 months ago. The 2nd time I washed it the zipper key came off, rendering the zipper useless. I chocked it up to a fluke. Bought another one a few weeks ago and the zipper key (the metal piece that slides into the zipper slide) came off the 1st time I washed it. I did not keep the receipts from either purchase so can't return them. I am disappointed as there is nothing else quite like them on the market. I took one of my older models and couldn't get the key off with a vice grips and knife. Did I get 2 flukes or has something changed in the quality of manufacturing. Too expensive to buy if this is going to happen and it costs about 1/2 of sweatshirts cost to have a seamstress put on another zipper.

I purchased this for winter clothing for college and it is very warm. Very heavy duty winter jacket that will keep the cold out! I am very happy with this jacket the only down fall in my opinion is you can't really wear just a t-shirt with the jacket because the material irritates your skin.
