Waterproof Breathable Acadia Jacket - Unlined (#J219)
Amazing jacket!! This thing is 100% water proof!!
I've been doing carpentry for over 6 years in Vancouver BC,
And we all know how much it rains over here!!! I've tried all
Kinds of rain gear, from thick PVC stuff to other carhartt rain gear and this one is the best! It is soo light and water repellent! I even wear it out and about day to day cause it looks great!! 100% would buy this again!!

this jacket is hands down amazing. I bought this strictly to wear in the rain. its not quite a durable as other carhartts and its not quite as breathable. none the less its completely waterproof and comfortable as all get out.
Pros: Super comfortable, completely waterproof, looks amazing, great colors (i own the spinach color), well made.
Cons: This jack runs VERY large. order atleast one size down if you're planning on wearing something under it. if you're planning on wearing it as just the jacket, order 2 sizes down. I am a 5ft 8in 240lb male whos built (size 45 jacket) i usually wear a XL, with this jacket i returned and bought a L. Its still on the big side but i'll be perfect with a sweatshirt under it. lastly my biggest issues with this jacket is it doesnt breathe. this jacket would greatly benefit from underarm zipper vents.
I highly recommend this jacket!

A mesh lining to keep the clamy felling off you when you sweat would be a good addition to this jacket. Otherwise it is well made and a great jacket to always keep on hand during any weather.

Never Fear A Rainy Day!
My son has several jackets that he thought would be "ok" to wear for rainy weather while going back and forth to class. I got a call when he was absolutely drenched by the time he got to class in a downpour. The search was on for dependable rain wear. My son has always been pleased with the Carhartt gear he has purchased previously for farm work during the winter. When I read the reviews on this jacket, I knew I had found a dependable product for him to wear during rainy weather. When he received the jacket, he immediately liked the appearance, and the ability to fold and carry it everywhere in his backpack without it being "bulky", but the real test came when he wore it in the recent tornado weather this week end in North Carolina. He stayed dry with no complaints! The jacket was a little steep in price, but there is something to be said for, "you get what you pay for" and this was well worth the money.

Wet Weather Wonder
Finally a rain jacket that is comfortable, dry and stylish! The biggest problem Ive had with rain jackets in the past is they are too darn hot! Not this beauty. It breaths well, has plenty of room but never gets in the way, looks dressy enough to wear to the city. It is light weight wrinkle free construction is perfect to toss in the back seat on those "may rain days" This is the perfect gift for anyone who has to be out doors in wet weather!

Great rain jacket
This is a great rain jacket. I should say the best one ever got. I use it to mostly keep me dry when it is raining its,very light and thin not heavy it can keep you warm if you wear a heavy shirt under it but i dont think it would be good to go out in a snow storm with just this on but for a spring to early fall jacket or a rainy day this jacket is great. Other than that its a great jacket for the price and dose exactly what it says it dose and then some.

I live in New England and this jacket is great. I can layer fleece underneath it when it's cold, and just a shirt when it's warm. I feel like I'm in a magic bubble when it rains.

Great Rain Jacket
This is the perfect rain jacket for everyday use. It can be worn with a thing under it from a short sleeved t-shirt to a long sleeved t-shirt, flannels, or even a sweatshirt. It fits over the top nicely without feeling bulky at all. It also does a great job keeping you dry I was in the rain for at least 2 hours straight and was still bone dry underneath. I really like this as a rain jacket to keep with me in the truck in case it starts to rain on he job. Highly recommended.
