Reviewer: NewJerseyBruce, Location: Central and Northern New Jersey, Occupation: Technology Teacher, adult education Here's a great rain jacket to keep handy... I purchased the Shoreline Vapor Jacket #101570 about five or six weeks ago. Since then, I've used it in three different days of heavy to light rain.
Water beads up and runs off this jacket like a duck (literally). It comes with a built in hood and adjustable elastic cords for the hood opening.
On the inside, I was dry as a bone. No water leaked in and the jacket kept me warm enough in the wind, so that I did not get chilled (or wet!) on some 40-45 degree rainy days.
Bottom line: This coat was a great buy at the price I paid at Dungarees.com and I would certainly recommend it for light duty, casual rain wear, particularly if you are an office worker (it looks really good in black) or if you just need a good looking, practical rain jacket to go out with your friends or lunch, dinner or drinks.
This is NOT a heavy duty construction rain coat or rain jacket for use in heavy rain, winds and / or seas, such as on a fishing boat in the North Atlantic or other very cold / wet outdoor activity (e.g. camping in the mountains at altitude).

Reviewer: Pendragon, Location: Hamburg, MI, Occupation: Automotive design engineer Great srevice and great product. The Medford Coat is, in my opinion not only a great looking coat but is also perfect for keeping the rain and wind from ruining your day. The sizing is full; which lets me layer with turtle necks, sweater or sweat shirts depending on the activities of the day.
The hood is also good to suppliment any hat I'm wearing or have forgotten to wear before leaving home.
The velcro cuffs and full sleeve length work great to keep the weather out and seal nicely to gloves.
The Carhartt reputation for durability and value assures me that I will appreciate this coat for years to come.
