Reviewer: Odilly, Location: Ballarat,Victoria,Australia a good sweater Really good seems pretty warm, but haven't subjected it to anything to cold, its not to heavy which was a concern with it being Cat 3
Reviewer: willie1, Location: the burg, Occupation: excavator As expected carhartt comes through again great well made FR hoodie,very heavyweight it will keep you warm. The price is good considering all FR is about triple the price of non-fr,but it is required for many of our jobs.
Reviewer: jeff1099, Location: North Eastern USA, Occupation: Project Management Carhart Shirt Jac - good but not great I like my Shirt Jac however it could stand improvment. The jacket is light enough to be worn where a sweatshirt woudl be appropriate, has nice snaps in the front and breast pockets. Like most all Carhartt gear, it is well made; and I'm glad that Carhartt offers it, as I dont like hoods and all the FR sweatshirts had hoods.
My constructive criticism:
- Pockets: It could use some more pockets. Give us hand warmer pockets, and perhaps 1 inside breast pocket. Also provide closure flaps to close the two breast pockets that are there. Loose 1 star for inadequate pockets.
Fit: I wear a size 44 regular shirt. I have been this this size for over 25 years; so its either a 44 Reg. or a "Large". So I ordered the Large. The Shirt Jac in size large was too snug in the shoulders, limited arm movement, especially when buttoned up; so I returned it and ordrered an X-Large. Now I have adequate shoulder and sleeve length, but I could stuff a basketball under the front with it buttoned up. I'll get used to it, but the size grading could be better. Loose 1 star on Fit.
Otherwise a 5 star product, and if these items were fixed I would have no problem paying 30 to 40 % more than what the price was as is.
