    Carhartt Jackets

    Wife and I are currently using older Polaris snowmobile jackets for outside every day use. They are not the high end jacket we use for actual snowmobiling but are light weight, look bulky but aren't and are warm as h***. Now looking for a replacement jackets. Over the years we have ditched all of our old Carhartt jackets and are now in the need of winter jackets for outside every day use. Any recommendations on the newer type Carhartt jackets? Needs to have a hood and don't want one I need to drag behind the truck for 50 miles and wash 400 times before it's soft enough to actual wear. (gettin old here)

    I know you're looking for Carhartt for the same reason I used to, but I don't believe anything they sell any more is made in the U.S. Tractor Supply has a ton of Carhartt knock-off stuff that is much cheaper, seems to be just as durable, and not quite as stiff. Just mentioning it.

    I have Carhartt bibs both insulated and non and then a hooded jacket. I bought them about 3 years ago when I was working at our acreage a lot. I can't say I am really that much of a fan after having them. The seem to hold up to abrasion really well but seem to tear about as easy as anything else !

    The hood doesn't work well for me because it is so stiff. Other hoods work OK when I want to turn around and back up but this one is like steel and when I rotate my head I am just looking at the back of the hood !

    I wear a Carhartt jacket everyday for work for three years and it's still stiff. I think that's what makes them "tough". Any reason you want a Carhartt specifically?

    At home I have found that layering seems to work out best for me if I'm not doing any rugged work, I don't know how you feel about that. If it's really cold outside (10* and below) I will wear a long sleeve shirt, fleece vest, Carhartt hooded sweatshirt and then my soft shell waterproof jacket with hood. For instance I would wear this if I was shoveling snow or something similar. This allows me to take layers off if I get warm without having to go back in the house and get another jacket.

    If I am going to be dragging trees or anything that might cut my soft shell jacket I would wear my Carhartt jacket simply for abrasion resistance.

    I checked to see what material my jacket was made of and it was "ring-spun cotton firm hand duck" which after a little bit of Googling gave me Carhartt's fabric guide:

    Carhartt Fabric Guides

    Without actually having any experience with the different fabrics I would look for something that is Sandstone Duck or Washed Duck based on the guide above.

    Hope this helps.

    I don't need the ultimate durability any more I just don't want to have to buy new jackets every other year. Thanks.
    Our snowmobile jackets have the EXTRA large collar that keeps the back of your head and neck nice and warm that's why I mentioned the hood.

    I have been wearing Filson products for years. Yes they are on the expensive side but the quality and customer service is great. They have a 100% satisfaction guarantee policy that is impeccable. The Tin cloth products are very rigid (you can actually stand your coat up on the floor) and the cover cloth products are supple. I own jackets, pants, bags, blankets, boots & shirts and not once I ever regretted my purchase. I have also exchanged or returned items 2-3 years later (no questions asked).

    I usually by my items through a company called Farmway. They can usually get Filson products for 20% off of the list price.

    Favorite Filson item by far is the Alaskan Guide Shirt......

    I have a Carhartt C26 quilt lined coat for working in the woods. It's of the sandstone duck material an thus already "soft" and very warm. They don't come with a hood but have the buttons along the back of the collar to add one later (which I have as well).

    It's a very comfortable and durable coat... Insulation-wise, I usually have to take it off if I'm really working (like this past weekend, it was a balmy 15F Sunday, too hot for that coat...).

    They're about $100 and well worth it.

    I bought the Carhartt C26 "chore coat" last year to replace a very old no-brander. It IS warm, nice nylon quilted lining lets a flannel or fleece shirt move under it. I don't get the "rigid" cloth stuff, I had a vest made out of that nasty stiff cotton and it gave so little that the zipper would eat my neck even unzipped. Any Carhartt hood off a coverall will snap onto it (yeah, totally useless for backing up!). Unless conditions are VERY cold/windy I'm usually layered in a down vest but if I need a trip to the woodpile in a T-shirt or I have to stand around I'll grab the coat. I believe I may have wasted some $'s here with the G-word warming of late, I wore it once so far this season...

    The best workwear I've found anywhere is from Duluth Trading Company. Great rugged work apparel that is durable and comfortable. From outerwear to underwear this is what I wear day-in and day-out. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants comfort and value. Get on their email list as they have frequent sales and coupons for % off, free shipping or both

    More information is here:Men's Workwear, Women's Work Wear, Work Clothing
