Rated 5 out of 5 by UrbanSherpa I've bought three over the years
I'm 5'10 and 200lbs, FYI. All my current Carhartts are size LARGE and fit perfectly. I live in cold Canada.
I've bought three of these Rugged Sherpa vests and one Arctic vest. I also have purchased about 7-8 jackets, plus hoodies. My first vest was a tan XL REG that I thought would shrink down to my size. I ended up giving to an uncle who wears it EVERY DAY. I bought a tan LRG REG and it fits well, despite being a little short at the belly. This is my 'indoor' vest, and it saves my heating bill! I have a port coloured LRG TALL that is my 'dress vest'. I wear it everywhere outside. I prefer the extra length and layer it over a Tshirt or light hoodie.
I'm a confirmed 'vest guy'. These give me warmth, movement, protection, and in my opinion, style! Warm enough without overheating. Magic!
These are my MOST WORN piece of clothing. Without question.
This Sherpa vest is lighter and softer than my Arctic vest. I always layer the Arctic with a heavy hoodie. it gets cold here.
I have USA-made Carhartts and Mexico-made Carhartts and they are BOTH WELL MADE.
Love them all....just for different temperatures. Rugged Sherpa is the most versatile for me. Very well constructed. Will outlast me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carterhart Good idea
In keeping with the layering idea it was a wise choice.....I wear the vest over a Carhartt tee shirt ,a Carhartt flannel shirt ,a Carhartt hooded sweatshirt and a pair of Carhartt bibs with a Carhartt jacket over top.....works great. I'm a carpenter and work in all the elements. It was a great addition in all this past cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glozen My son loved the pockets on the inside of the vest.
I hit it out of the ballpark! I bought my son and my son-in-law each a vest and they both put them right on and loved them. They like the lining and all of the extra pockets. Really nice choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnnyboy22 Worth way more than the price
I've owned multiple carhartt vest and coats but this is by far my favorite. It looks good on Sunday's then preforms well all week on the farm. It's impossible to rip, extremely comfortable, and looks great with anything you wear it with. If your on the fence about buying it i promise you won't be disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by bill best vest made
have bought many of these vests, each one lasting at least 4 or 5 years. working in a log yard and working on equipment can take a toll on your clothes but this stands the test of time. My son is a millwright and also wears the same vest and loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anuel Great outer and under layer
Runs alittle large, but fits well under heavy jackets and dusters to provide another layer to the core. Cleans really easy and you can't tear it on anything. I worked on a horse farm all through college and this thing saw some serious abuse and it still looks new! Even the color hasn't faded yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lesley My favorite vest
I'm a woman that used to work on a farm - and continue to be outside a lot every day. I bought myself one of these vests more than 17 years ago & now looking to buy one for my son. I love this thing, it has held up well. It doesn't get static like fleece, hay and animal hair doesn't stick to it. Without a collar it layers well (I can put a sweatshirt under it or over it). Being longer in the back, keeps me warmer. I wear it A LOT.

This vest is a great product for taming a cold winter day.
