My favorite jacket
My boyfriend who works in the same industry as me has been raving about this jacket for weeks. We both have heavier lined duck jackets from Carhartt but those can become cumbersome and at times hard to work in. I finally caved and bought the women's version. It fits like a dream. I purchased a size larger so I can layer hoodies under and I love it. The hand socks are fantastic and keep the cold air out. My work gloves slip right over them too so no struggle to tuck the gloves in or my undershirt inside. Millions of pockets and drawstrings too! The material is black, not gray like in the photos. It's durable and comfortable at the same time. I've been searching for a breathable waterproof coat that fits over my other layers and this is it! I wear it out of work too. It's that nice looking. Oh, also it is longer in the back which I love. No breeze up the back when I bend over.

The jacket quality is great and the appearance is very nice. Stay true to the size chart, they run a little big and I had to send my first one back and reorder a smaller one.

Waterproof Carhartt, Who Knew?
It was really cold, snowy, and windy today in SW VA, and this jacket did its job. This is an excellent jacket for a serious outsdoorsy person for the following reasons: excellent material really keeps the elements out, the hood is big enough to allow room for a bulky hat if you need one, the stretchy wrist protector, zipper cover with snaps, and the velcro neck protector keep the wind out. The chin- zipper cover protects the skin from a cold zipper, the pockets are well positioned, and the zipper slips nicely and smoothly. The mesh lining allows for breathing, but horse hair gets stuck in the holes which for me is a minor drawback. I'm 5 foot 3 inches and about 115 lbs, and the small fits loosely which can be nice if you want to wear a vest on extremely cold days. To me this is a nearly perfect barn jacket. I am very happy with my purchase!

Great Waterproof Jacket
Just as described! I used it the first day I had it and it worked great in the pouring rain and it was warm since it was a cold front coming through. The tapered fit is just right as I still have plenty of room for heavier clothing underneath.
