Shoreline Jacket (#J162)
My Favorite Jacket
Great overall jacket. Has a real "boss" style. I was recently promoted to foreman and needed a more professional look. This jacket gives that appeal. Very comfortable but runs big. I'm 5'9" 170 and had to get a SMALL when I usually wear MED or LRG. Warm but would need a long sleeve shirt undernieth below 50 degrees. More durable than I expected. Tougher than any other rain coat I have. The shell is a little noisy if you're a Ninja but strong enough to withstand a nunchuck attack.

Runs a full size larger than the label; small is actually medium. Extremely durable materials; excellent construction and design. If you want a jacket that will provide good service for many years buy this!

A great value for the price
Your reviews helped me pick the correct coat size. It fits perfect. I am very happy with the quick order turnaround and the quality of the coat. Thanks Martin

This jacket does exactly what it says it will do, keep you dry. It breathes to keep you dry from your own perspiration, keeps the rain out, and fights off the wind. I'm in the timber business so I am ALWAYS in the elements. This is my pic jacket on rainy days. It is NOT a heavy winter jacket for the snow. But is is great even in our cold Colorado rains. As long as the precipitation is "water" and not "snow", this is the ticket. It's the most rugged rain jacket I have ever owned, and wears great.

from the moment i put this jacket on i knew I'd love it. Its not bulky like a lot of other Carhartt jackets, it fits will in all the appropriate places.
Pros: not bulky, lightweight, very very durable, super comfortable!, drys quickly
Cons: not quite as waterproof as you're lead to believe!, I am a 240lb 5ft 7in tall person and built i usually wear a XL. the XL ran HUGE HUGE HUGE. I returned my first jacket and bought a Large. Which was also big returned it and bought a Medium. I can't remember the last time i wore anything medium. If i wanted to wear a sweatshirt under it I'd need a large.
Great jacket! highly recommended. since i bought this I've also purchased the insulated version of this jacket J175 (large) and the Arcadia J219.

Ok seriously, order at least one size down. I'm actually most comfortable TWO sizes down but I'm not layering underneath. (I use as a typical casual-wear spring/fall jacket).
That being said; Best. Jacket. Ever.
(Fit is only rated a 4 because the sizes are so far off normal)

I was very pleased with the quality of this jacket and the pants as well. I bought them primarily to use when riding my motorcycle and have been caught in a couple downpours. They kept me completely dry no problem. I choked a little bit at the combined price of them, but they are very well made, work well, and I consider them worth the money.

Love the item. Had my doubts about it but once I received and wore it in high winds and sleet it worked perfect. Kept me dry and warm.
