Reviewer: Fingers, Location: Granite City, Illinois, Occupation: Retired This coat saved my life. I was with a group of friends hunting in a field. I decided to sit in a chair and was in front of the group. I was about 15 yards from them when they raised a couple of pheasants. The birds flew forward at a low height directly at me. One of the guys fired two shots. The two shots knocked me out of the chair. My Carhart jacket, heavy cap, and Carhart pants took the brunt of both blasts. Can't wear either of them any more. To many holes in them. But they stopped the force of the blasts and I suffered only four shot wounds. Thank God for Carhart durability. By the way I replaced all of the garments with new Carhart clothing.
Reviewer: CR73, Location: Tucson, AZ, Occupation: Engineer US MADE at a great price! I got this jacket to wear during the fall weather when working outside and was happy to find it's made in the US! It's not the warmest jacket, but you can layer up underneath to increase the warmth. The material is a little stiff at first but breaks in with use or after the first wash. A good all-around jacket at a great price = awesome value!
Reviewer: 1566man, Location: Davenport, IA, Occupation: Farming/Ag Great work/casual coat! Coat runs large enough that you can wear heavy clothing underneath for cold days. Very good coat for year round work use. Can wear in late spring/ early fall with t-shirt and be comfortable.
Reviewer: LeeB, Location: Delaware, Occupation: Community Volunteer much need features I needed to replace a very, very old and warn jacket. The J131 met my need. I can wear it alone or layer with my carhartt vest for more warmth. It is well made and will last thru my trips to Scout camp and around town shopping. It will hold up under fall and winter outdoor use.
Reviewer: SteveT, Location: Chicago, IL, Occupation: Retired Met all expectations. After several friends recommended Carhartt, I needed a new winter jacket and bought the thermal lined jacket for the first time. Great warmth and wind resistance for extended outdoor activities. Will certainly purchase another one.
