if you camp, you need this jacket...
By: octocore
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.

Durable jacket...
By: Brock
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.

Nice Jacket...
By: Andy4
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.

Great jacket!...
By: Renfro
I bought this jacket for my husband after Christmas one year because his brother had gotten one. They both love their jackets. My husband wears this jacket all of the time. It is a good weight jacket and also rain coat. You have enough room in this jacket to be able to wear a bulky sweatshirt under it. It is a nice jacket for going out in. My husband takes the hood off of the jacket most of the time that he wears it.

If it works in Oregon...........
By: Scott Lute
I love this coat. I use it as my top layer and I wear it all winter. If it gets cold, just add a layer underneath. Waterproof, windproof, easy on and off due to the nylon liner, hood is great. The sleeves are extended on top and have a high quality elastic cuff to seal out the wind. Great design, high quality. Dry and warm year around.

Great Gear for Rain and Wind...
By: CB
This is the best rain jacket that I've ever owned. It makes a good lightweight jacket/wind breaker or pairs up nicely with a vest for colder weather. The only drawback is the fit of the hood. I have to wear a ball cap or the hood hangs down over my eyes. This is not really a big deal to me as I am usually wearing a ball cap as part of my everyday apparel. A good rain jacket, and as rugged as you expect from Carhartt.

Great jacket...
By: masterson
Waterproof, comfortable and not too heavy. I bought my entire crew one of these jackets and they all love it. It's not too bulky, but it blocks the wind. Great for light rain or snow. It's different from most Carhartt products because it is actually waterproof. I'll buy these jackets over and over. They don't run as big as the model before them, so if you plan on wearing a heavy sweatshirt underneath this jacket, go a size up. Plenty of deep pockets to store what ever you need. I can't say a bad thing about this jacket.
