They seem to be a little big but I haven't washed it yet so I'm sure it will shrink. I wear everyday to work my crew members have asked me if it was warm. I find them to be warmer than the sweatshirts and they do a pretty good job of blocking the wind when you're working outside. They have a bit of weight to them which is nice but not too much to where it makes you feel tired and sore.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jeff1099 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.
