Carhartt Outerwear Lining Guide

We get a lot of questions about the many different linings that Carhartt offers in their outerwear, and we’ll admit that some of the terminology can be rather confusing. For instance, most would think that ‘Thermal’ would be one of the warmest linings, but it is actually one of the lighter ones.

Check out the image below to see the linings listed in order from lightest to warmest. Hope this helps solve some issues, if not let us know and our customer service will be glad to help you out.

    What is the weight of the insulation in the Arctic Quilt lining? (looking for an ounce/Sq Ft number for comparison to other coats).

    • Darren

      Unfortunately, Carhartt does not provide that data for their linings. You might be able to get that info by calling Carhartt directly – 1-800-833-3118

  2. Lorraine

    This is an outer shell question. What kind of outer lining is suitable for chainsaw, wood gathering, and basically being in the bush – with twigs and nettles catching on your clothes? Thanks very much.

    • Caleb

      We would recommend anything with a Duck or Sandstone Duck outer shell. We recommend these because we feel that they are the fabrics least likely to get snagged and tear when working in timber. Its a very strong and durable material.
