Carhartt Waterproof Breathable Jackets for Men
Best Summer Jacket Ever
Alaska has the some of the harshest and most extreme weather in the world. This jacket has handled well. We get 50 below F so it isnt a winter jacket...i use a different Carhartt for that. However, for spring summer and fall I would recommend this jacket to anyone. It keeps you dry even in very wet conditions. Easily the most stylish rain coat available...trust me, i gotta be looking good! Every Alaskan appreciates the value of Carhartt...i will continue to be a proud customer. I received a winter coat over 15 years ago in 8th grade and have used it ever since for construction...aside from wear and tear it still keeps we warm and is able to take the abuse. Best work wear ever! Ask an Alaskan and he'll agree...i bet you!

I don't know if I got a bad lot or what, but I get wet every time I wear this stuff. I have long depended on Carhartt for my work wear, but not for my rainwear apparently. I was very disappointed when this jacket started leaking in the shoulder seams and over the years has progressed to not even needing to wear the thing because it's just going to get wet. The jacket leaks, the pockets hold water and at the end of the day I am miserable. I wouldn't recommend these to anybody who works hard out in the weather. Try this one again Carhartt, I expect more from you.

Keeps you dry!
I bought this jacket the first year it was out, before Carhartt had a womens line. It is my favorite jacket! It's a great all weather jacket that looks great no matter where you are going or what you are doing. I recently wore this jacket along with a pair of Carhartt waterproof pants to a high school football game where it rained through out the entire game. I was completely dry from head to toe! This is one purchase I would make all over again, no regrets. The only complaint would be that the hood falls into my eyes no matter how I try to tighten it.

from the moment i put this jacket on i knew I'd love it. Its not bulky like a lot of other Carhartt jackets, it fits will in all the appropriate places.
Pros: not bulky, lightweight, very very durable, super comfortable!, drys quickly
Cons: not quite as waterproof as you're lead to believe!, I am a 240lb 5ft 7in tall person and built i usually wear a XL. the XL ran HUGE HUGE HUGE. I returned my first jacket and bought a Large. Which was also big returned it and bought a Medium. I can't remember the last time i wore anything medium. If i wanted to wear a sweatshirt under it I'd need a large.
Great jacket! highly recommended. since i bought this I've also purchased the insulated version of this jacket J175 (large) and the Arcadia J219.
