|Carhartt Duck Chore Coat - Blanket Lined (#C001)|
Reviewer: Montys, Location: France, Occupation: Entrepreneur
Old school indestructibility, but not rain proof !!!
I ordered this jacket back in October of last year and have lived in it ever since.
The truth is this was a bit of a nostalgic purchase, as growing up in Maine I had one from LLBeans and loved it, and wore it out.
Having found Carhartts products in later life, and love them, I finally purchased this chore coat.
It's bomb proof from new. Fantastic construction. The fabric wears like iron, and you have the feeling that you are protected from most thing nature can throw at you. That being said, if you are out in a good down pour of rain you are going to get wet as this jacket is not water proof.
The so called blanket lining is not my idea of a true blanket lining, but it does keep you warm and does it's job.
This is without doubt a coat that I'm going to have for a long time, and no doubt will give me a chance to recreate new memories and a little nostalgia just as my first barn coat did all those years ago.
So if you are in the market for a chore / barn jacket, this will without doubt fit you needs, and become a life long friend, so you too can experience and live those kind of moments that memories are made off, and that's what friends are for !!
