Customers who find themselves in the coldest of climates, often will simply just ask us “What is the warmest item you have?” in popular product categories like jackets, bibs or gloves. Usually this means there’s no time for this customer to price shop or worry about how it looks for a night on the town, they just need the warmest gear for cold weather they can get and they need it now. When that’s the case, we have a few favorites that we immediately know to recommend.
There really are only 2 types of options – Carhartt Extremes or Carhartt’s Quilted Flannel Lined Jackets. Both are going to keep you warm, there is no doubt about that, but we need to take a little closer look at some of the features to determine which would work best.
The Extremes are typical Carhartt – rugged and durable. Worried about snagging it while cutting down trees? Well, that’s not going to happen very easily as its Cordura® Nylon shell can hold up to just about anything. The J133 is the hooded version of this, while the C55 does not have a hood. These jackets are perfect for anybody working in extreme conditions.
Carhartt Quilted Flannel Lined Jackets are perfect for every day use. They are less “extreme” but still well insulated. These jackets will keep you warm at work or at play. Quilted Flannel Lined Jackets won’t only keep you warm; the soft lining with keep you comfortable all day long.
Extremes would once again be what we would recommend. You have two options for the bibs as well, the Carhartt Extremes Arctic Zip Front Bib Overall or the Carhartt Extremes Zip Front Coverall. Both of these will work hard just as hard as you do to keep you warm throughout the day.
Carhartt Wetzel Hat, hands down. Our description says it all – “The warmth of this hat will make your body heat shutter at the thought of even attempting to escape through your head.”
There are a lot of options for gloves, but when it comes down to the warmest you definitely want to go with either the Carhartt Storm Glove or the Carhartt Tundra Glove. They are both insulated, waterproof, durable and everything else you need to keep you hands warm in the elements.
There you have it, the warmest of the warm. There are many, many options that you can go with, but for the most extreme conditions, you probably want to stick to the list above.
