Carhartt Jackets: Men's J162 001 Black Waterproof Breathable Jacket
Paper cuts, people who take up two parking spaces, getting caught in the rain without the proper waterproof jacket--these are some of life’s little annoyances. We’re here to help put an end to one of these pet peeves--getting drenched in the rain--by offering you Carhartt Men’s Black J162 001 Waterproof Breathable Jacket. We’re still working on a solution for the other two annoyances.
Made of durable nylon, this black Carhartt jacket has a special water-repellant finish to keep every last drop of water out. It’s been field tested which means people actually tested it in the rain to make sure it delivers on its promises.
The problem with some waterproof jackets is that while they do a good job at stopping the rain from getting in, they also do a good job at making you overheated and feel like you’re suffocating. The breathable membrane on this midweight breathable Jacket allows body heat to leave the garment even as it keeps rain and moisture out. The interior body lining used for the Carhartt waterproof jacket is a 100% polyester mesh, with the sleeves and hood lined in nylon. The nylon is not only incredibly durable, it feels silky-soft against your skin.
If you’re looking for a hardworking waterproof jacket to repel the rain, you might as well go all the way. Don’t just protect your torso, shield your head too. The contoured three-piece hood on this men's Carhartt jacket features an adjustable draw cord to fit more snuggly around your head and is removable. To keep the wind and cold out, the hem is finished with an elastic draw cord. Cinch it tight and keep the nasty elements out.
While we don’t have a solution for paper cuts and those annoying people who take up two parking spaces, we do have a solution for staying drier in the rain--Carhartt Men’s J162 001 Black Waterproof Breathable Hooded Jacket.

if you camp, you need this jacket...
This Carhartt J162 001 waterproof jacket is really a winner in my book; it is rugged, breathable, and truly waterproof.
It really is a durable jacket. I've used it while chopping up firewood while its raining, scraped it across tree bark while looking for wood, and wrinkled it up stuffing it my bag, and the waterproof coating has not seemed to wear off one bit.
It has two sets of drawstrings, one attached to the hood and one by your waist, but helping to keep water out even more.
Most importantly is this jacket's breathability. There are plenty of jackets that will keep water off of you, but this is the only jacket I've found with it's warmth that will not make me sweat.

Unlike most waterproof "raincoats", this one is really sturdy. You will notice right away that it's built to last! Although I bought this to help with the transition from fall to winter, I find that I wear this Carhartt jacket as much in the winter as I do in fall. I really like the fact that it has plenty of pockets, and I don't feel confined wearing it. If I have any complaint, it's with the hood. The hood on mine doesn't fit me very well. I think they designed the hood to fit over construction helmets, that's why it's so large. But, I don't use the hood anyway. I usually wear a ball cap or knit hat in the winter, so it's no big deal. Bottom line, this jacket will keep you warm and dry on most days.

The Carhartt jacket is a little on the big side when ordering. The closure flap with zipper over the pockets work nicely and keeps everything dry. The storm flap over the jacket zipper kept that sealed as well. The hood is generously sized and snaps to the collar. When not needed it can be detached and only stored in one of the large outer pockets. This is a jacket not a coat. It will keep you dry down to your pant's belt only (items in your pants pockets do get wet). The draw string along the bottom of the jacket can pull it closer and direct the dripping rain to your pant's waist area. A little exertion with the jacket on seems to overpower the "breathability" of the jacket.
