I've owned about a dozen Carhartt arctic-lined duck coats, which usually last me 2-3 years of brutal outdoor abuse. This coat has the added advantage of being completely waterproof, which is a big plus for me; I find the yellow plastic raingear which my company provides to be uncomfortable. Now I can stay warm and dry without the added layer of latex.
The coat is very warm, despite being relatively lightweight compared to the traditional arctic-lined duck. I would rate it even slightly warmer, because it stops wind much better than the cotton shelled duck coats. I live in the northeastern U.S., and we just received 20 inches of snow here. I was out shoveling and snow-blowing for 12 hours over the course of 2 days, and the coat kept me very warm with temps in the low 20's. In addition to the coat, I wore a thermal undershirt and 1 cotton sweatshirt. I was sweating profusely, but as advertised, the coat breathes very well. Below 20 degrees Fahrenheit, I think I will need an additional layer, most likely fleece will do.
The collar snaps closed to keep the wind out, completely negating the need for a fleece-neck or scarf-type wear. Further, the hood has (three very strong) velcro straps that smartly close right over the collar, enhancing the effect.
It is very comfortable once you get used to its lightness, and it looks very good. When you work with your hands as I do, the cuffs on coats tend to wear very quickly. This coat has a certain slipperiness to its outer shell, which seems to save on cuff wear so far. It gets dirty very quickly, but cleans up very easily with a sponge and soapy water.
I work so often that I no longer have "work clothes" and "dress clothes", and this coat looks pretty presentable for a working guy to wear pretty much anywhere.
The concerns I have:
The outer shell is tough, but the pocket liners are too thin and are definitely going to bust open with the kind of use I put these coats through. Stuffing a tool, or even car/truck keys, into the pockets gives me the dubious feeling that they will tear at any minute and that eventually I will be forced to retrieve my stuff from some hidden corner of the coat, beyond the pocket lining. There is nowhere to safely stuff a pen or pencil because of the thin pocket situation. I am always very carefully placing my pen on the inside left-breast pocket, which is a big, sloppy pocket which just sort of hangs there without any stiff support. If the jacket were heavier and stiffer, it would be easier to put things in and out of the pockets; it is a much softer coat than the Carhartts I am used to.
The coat's inner liner is light and surprisingly warm, but again, it is pretty thin, and I am gingerly putting it on each time, to preserve it as long as possible.
Overall, I am liking it more and more, and I am glad I took the gamble and crossed over from the arctic-lined duck coats to this one. The advantages over the traditional arctic duck outweigh my concerns, and again, I really like this coat. It is a very good value, and I wouldn't mind replacing it every other year or every second year, which is all that I can expect of a work coat.

I purchased this jacked based on favorable on recommendations from the salesperson. I was looking for a jacket that would keep me dry during an 8-hour downpour as this is the weather Seattle area gets during the winter months.
My trade is in construction so this jacket was used in fairly harsh enviorment.
I wore this jacket daily in the heavy driving Seattle rain. During the second week of wearing it, my arms and shoulders started to feel wet. In the third week one of the snaps broke off. After following the washing and drying instructions the jacket even let more water through it.
I did take this product back to the retailer for a refund which I received. I was told that I should not was this jacket due to a chemical that is factory applied and would be washed off. His explanation did not begin to pass the "sniff test". I was unhappy with the overall performance and function of this jacket. I will however, purchase other Carhartt products in the future, just not this one.

Coat Cover (hood)

By possumpolice

from Shallotte, NC

Comments about Carhartt Mens Waterproof Breathable Coat Brown L:

Great coat, very durable in wet and rough conditions, only complaint, the head cover has a slight design flaw. I have a large head and when the cover is sealed correctly you would still need a head the size of a watermelon standing on end for it to fit properly, this allows for rain and wind to enter with no resistance. Maybe add additional sizes to the cover or adjustment straps/cords?

Great play coat

By brownbear

from Bend, OR

Comments about Carhartt Mens Waterproof Breathable Coat Brown L:

I live a very active outdoor life in Central Oregon. This coat has been from the depths of caves to the tops of mountains. It has kept me warm (with appropriate layers underneath) and dry year-round. I do need a fleece or something around my neck to prevent my whiskers from being pulled. Awesome coat. Thinking about buying the matching jacket for something shorter on the waist.

From Iraq to Germany

By chatt

from Germany

Comments about Carhartt Mens Waterproof Breathable Coat Brown L:

I originally purchased this jacket to replace one that I lost. Carhartt, a name I was familiar with, because my brother had purchased the products for years as a painter. Since I'm from the Pacific Northwest I wanted a jacket that could withstand the occasional trips home and any of the various environments that I might find myself.

My first stop, winter time in Iraq. Despite what you may have heard, it gets rather cold certain times of the year. It keeps you comfortable, and suprisingly kept the sand out. The sealed, zippered pockets kept the important things dry and clean.

Enter Germany, mountains, rain, biting wind, and most of all snow. Four distinct seasons, three different times of the year when I need my Carhartt jacket. Not a single flake of snow, a drop of rain or blown gust of wind could get through this jacket. The thing that most impressed me, however, was I didn't overheat. I stayed toasty.

On my off time if I could be a walking Carhartt advertisement, I would. Carhartt stuff works. Worldwide...period.

THIS IS WORTH THE MONEY

By WetGuy

from Portland, OR

Comments about Carhartt Mens Waterproof Breathable Coat Brown L:

I clean outdoors for a living on ladders, roofs and cement all day. I normaly wear PVC style rain gear jackets, DH or Columbia. At the end of the day was always wet from my own sweat, and cold and tired. I bought the Carhart Breathable set one year ago and love it. I holds up alot better then PVC, dose not rip, or come apart at the seams, and best of all I stay truly warm and dry all day, not even a little patch of wet on my shirts. It has water proof zipers on the pockets and an Inside pocket that keeps my MP3 player dry. All in all this is the best work clothes I've ever bought and pays for itself in not needing to be replaced through out the year, and becuse I stay comforable and am not dehydrating my self by sweating all day. I find I stay on site longer and have more energy. The only improvment would be to add arm pit zippers to let out extra heat on wet spring days.

Well Made, Excellent Value

By turfapotamus

from Brighton, MI

Comments about Carhartt Mens Waterproof Breathable Coat Brown L:

This coat is very well made. It is windproof and waterproof, so it will keep you warm on those cool windy days too. The extra length is nice for leg protection although I will also purchase the pants since I like the coat so well. A High quality product for a very reasonable price.
