Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy Fits just right. Longer back keeps from having cold back muscles & tightness.
Fits just right. Longer back keeps my back warmer eliminating back pain form contracting cold back muscles. This is my third vest. 1 for work & 1 for casual. The vest is great for me, hope it works for U.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeC SUIT OF ARMOR
If they awarded Nobel Prizes for work clothes this would be the winner. It is impossible to wear them out. I have been wearing them for over 25 years and have never torn a pocket or ripped a seam. The zipper has never jammed or jumped the track.It has never even lost a pull tab. I wear them from September to April , all day ,every day. The long tail keeps your backside covered even when stretching or reaching , but is still comfortable getting in and out of the truck. I usually order a size up and layer under it. It is the most versatile article of clothing ever designed. The quality is unmatched, they are so rugged and substantial that you almost have to break them in like a new stiff boot. I can't go a winter without one. I rely on it so much that in the event of a fire I would save the dog first, then my vest!

This vest is the perfect fit for me.....it is tough, strong and durable. Since I hunt alot , this vest is
GREAT to have in the field and satisfies the required hunter orange that hunters need to wear in some states. I have many other Carhartt products from pants to shirts.....you name it! Me and my Carhartts.....life is good!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NannyJo Love these vests!!
My husband and son work outside all day everyday and these vests keep them warm and comfortable. Wash easily and retain their size after washing, we hang them to dry rather than in the dryer. Love them so much we ordered an extra for when one is in the laundry everyone still has on to wear. Definitely recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Southernfryedyankee Amazing cold weather gear for 20 degrees+
I just got done writing my review for the B194 pants as this will be my cold weather catfishing apparel.
I am a hardcore catfisherman and the only reason I never hunted winter blues and flattys was I hate the cold. I never bought cold weather specific clothing before and It broke MANY of my fishing trips thinking what I had in the closet was good enough, needless to say I was WRONG. I found myself wanting to get off the water as fast as possible even when the bite was great, left me disappointed. I bought this vest originally in XLG and it literally swallowed me whole and I have been an XLG clothing guy for quite some time. I had the opportunity to try on a LG and it was perfect, tight to my core which is what is so important but still left my arms exposed to battle big catfish. The feel of this vest new is stiff and I expected that, I would rather have stiff that will break in to MY particular body than be flimsy and feel cheap. I like that this vest fits tight to my core, not uncomfortably tight but tight enough that I comfortably warm in my core. If my chest gets cold I am miserable and want to go home. I wear this vest with a long sleeve fleece shirt, carhartt heavy hoodie and the Carhartt B194 insulated pants. I got all my gear the day the Arctic blast came from the high north and I was so comfortable in 20 degrees that it made me happy. My arms DID get cold but that was to be expected as I purposely chose a vest to leave my arms free to battle those cats and I will make provisions for that. The vest will be an asset to my cold weather catfishing gear and I am VERY pleased with my purchase.
On a side note, if someone should pick this vest I would go tighter rather than looser. A warm core keeps your whole body warm and comfortable. Get the size you need based on the clothing you plan to wear underneath this vest consistently and I am sure you will not be disappointed.
