I purchased my Carhartt jacket about two weeks ago. I bought the dark brown color.
I am from Michigan, and we had an unexpected snowstorm that left six inches on my front porch, driveway, back porch, and sidewalk. Initially, I was skeptical as to how this Carhartt jacket would hold up to the elements. So, I thought that wearing it while shoveling the snow would be a good way to put it to the test and to break the jacket in.
To my pleasant surprise, the jacket held up amazingly well! I was wearing a thin crewneck sweatshirt underneath and jeans. The jacket held up to the elements and protected me from the bone-chilling wind. I did not feel cold at all-- in fact, I was sweating. The quilted flannel really does its job very well. The hood kept my ears and head warm. The ribbed wrist and hip cuffs kept my body heat in.
I have owned several winter jackets, and I feel that this Carhartt has far surpassed every one of them. It is truly a no-nonsense, rugged work jacket, quite unlike the more expensive and less warm North Face jackets.
In my opinion, it is worth every dollar. You will not regret purchasing this active jacket. For reference, I am 5'3", about 120 lbs. I bought the jacket in size small. I was debating between the extra small and the small size, but ended up choosing the latter (small). The extra small felt a little bit tight around my chest area when I had it zipped. The small size is perfect. It does not feel too loose, nor does it feel too tight. There is still a good amount of room in the chest area when fully zipped, and I can also wear a beanie underneath the hood, with room to spare.
The only issue that I might mention is the zipper. Initially, it is is a bit stiff and difficult to zip, but once the jacket is broken in, this is no longer an issue. In a future version of the jacket, I would also like to see the hood extend out a bit more. It seems to be a short, and so when it rains or snows, the edge of the hood does not completely cover my eyes, and so I end up getting precipitation on my sunglasses.
The fit of the jacket looks great. I am so glad that Carhartt has a women's line.
Buy this jacket! You can't go wrong with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by barbecueBabe Love, Love, absolutely LOVE this jacket!
My husband and I have been wearing Carhartt jackets for years and I can honestly say this is the best one out there. The quality is impeccable, the comfort is amazing and the pockets are nice and deep. Big enough to easily fit a set of car keys, an iPod, a cell phone and just about everything else under the sun you'd ever need to shove into a jacket pocket. Our jackets have seen their fair share of two-stroke oil splashes, chainsaw induced wood chip batterings, gasoline spills,and kerosene splatters, yet every time they come out of the wash they look like brand new again. If you're looking for a die-hard work jacket, this is DEFINITELY the one for you, because you just can't kill these things!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SHAKE Incredible jacket
Anyone that is new to Carhartt products have been missing out. I have owned this jacket for YEARS... live in the NE and this is always my go to jacket in the winter. Keeps me warm in snow/cold rain, and cuts the wind.
Extremely warm, unbelievably durable. I have no visible wear on this jacket after having mine for 4 + years. Well worth the money, if you consider all aspects ... durability, warm, etc..
Highly recommend this jacket- or really any Carhartt products ( long underwear , flannels and gloves ... etc.. )

Daughter was extremely happy with this jacket.
I was so worried it would be to small or to big but it fit her PERFECT!!!
Her and I went hiking on the coldest day (23*f) so far in the mountains of PA and she was toasty warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marie17 Best for cold windy winters
I got this jacket in October of 2014. Before then I did not really own a adult sized winter coat. I chose Carhartt because I saw how my dad (who is a farmer) has worn his Carhartt coat my whole life. I knew that this coat would block the cold winter winds in rural Illinois and keep me warm in negative temperatures. I'm so glad I bought this coat and will wear it for years to come.
For sizing help: Im 5"3 and 125 pounds and a small fits great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CowLover Warmest, Most Durable Coat
I needed a warm coat for working at the barn during fall and winter since it is not heated, but I also needed a durable coat because I work around cattle and steers. This is the warmest option Carhartt offers for women, and it really stands up! I layer long underwear under my T-shirt and jeans. With this coat, I do not need anything else. Love the extra pockets for my gloves, pocket knife, and keys. Finally! A women's coat with real pockets! I got the Dark Brown, and the picture does not do this color justice. It is a really dark brown, and very pretty (plus, it will not stain easily). I was a little hesitant about the reviews saying it is over-sized, but I do not feel that way at all. I am usually a petite extra small, and this extra small fits very well. It is not too big, but it is not too small, so I feel it is perfect for me to move around and be on my toes around the cattle.
To help others with sizing:
I am 5'3" and 112 pounds and the extra small fits very well. The cuffed sleeves are great since I am short, so I do not have a problem with the sleeves being to long, but if my hands get cold, I can slip them inside the sleeve to warm up. The coat hits below my butt, which I like because it helps me stay warm. The banded bottom is very well-fitted, so no cold air can get into the coat. But, the rest of the coat is not tight-fitting, which in my opinion, is ideal because I can layer up, and still move around very easily.
