Reviewer: Shooter2jimM, Location: Chattanooga, TN, Occupation: Construction/agriculture Almost perfect! This has quickly become my favorite Carhartt jacket and I've owned quite a few. The lightweight quilted lining provides plenty of warmth and ample sizing allows for ease of movement when layered over other winter clothing. By itself, the coat is enough protection in freezing temps but when layered with a Carhartt hooded sweatshirt, the Mankato is up to the challenge of all but the harshest North American weather. The waterproof breathable membrane shrugs off water like your best rain jacket, making it the ideal snow storm or cold rain storm protection. The quilted, removable hood is a huge plus. Zippered waist pockets are cavernous and chest pockets adequately large. Innovative curved-cut cuff keeps it from wearing on the back of your thumb. A big downside is the small, finicky, dual-head zipper that is hard to engage under normal circumstances, and even harder to use while wearing gloves. The chest pocket flaps are tiny have no means of securing them in the closed position- a shame since the pockets themselves are of a very useful size. Single-stitched seams are a minor concern but they are definitely an area for improvement for a jacket of this quality. The negatives of the undersized zippers and un-securable chest pocket flaps can be overlooked but keep me from giving this otherwise perfect jacket my highest rating.

Reviewer: Danea, Location: Forney, TX, Occupation: PowerPlant Technician Carhartt Rain Work-Flex Pants This is the second pair of these pants I have purchased in the past year. The first pair were for me and the second for my brother. They fit wonderfully, stay where they are put, and fasten tightly around the ankle/boot to prevent water intrusion in that area. The pants fit comfortably over my regular work pants and cause me no discomfort whatsoever. I work in a powerplant and thus the strain on my clothing is higher than normal. These pants have stood up quite well over the past year whereas a normal rain suit falls apart after two or three uses. I highly recommend these!
Reviewer: OldGeekGuy, Location: Portland, OR My New Favorite Jacket I bought the Astoria Jacket and Pants for a trip to Mt. Hood in January. With suitable underlayering, they held up to three feet of snow without a hitch. More to the point, this is a versatile jacket that suits Portland's climate to a tee. I'm sure the next time I run out to the coast to visit Astoria, this jacket will live up to its name.
I did find the cut a little long in the sleeves at first, but I now find it close to perfect.
Reviewer: StevesStudio, Location: Chilliwack, BC, Canada, Occupation: Construction - Framing Actually waterproof! Working in the Fraser Valley during the winter months is very wet. After trying other breathable "waterproof" jackets, I was ready to buy a rubber suit and suffer in my own sweat.
The shoreline series is incredible for both warmth and dryness. Great for windy and rain condition. I have worn it on the warm rainy days and -20°C windy days. Have not been cold or over heated, the jacket is great at regulating temperature.
Bottom line, keeps you dry and warm no matter what! Get this jacket.
