Nice fit, for active movement. I have owned lots of carhartt jackets and pants in the past. My older , big, hooded carhartt jacket was bulky and restricted movement. I have alway wanted one of the sleek cut style Detroit jackets. So I bought one about 2 years ago. I like it still. But I wear wool Pendletons underneath it sometimes, and I don't like the rough (velcro effect) of the way it rubs against my Pendletons. If the Detriot had a smooth quilt lining it would be the perfect 'throw on quickly' work jacket, It is sleek and stays out of the way for people who work machinery. I like it, but just a few suggestions. (oh yes , and just with a very thin quilt lining, so it is not to bulky or claustrophobic. ) that would be perfect. Thanks

I own a variety of Carhartt jackets and a vest in which I wear a medium in all of them and they fit perfectly, almost as if they were tailored for me. I purchased the Detroit about a week ago sense I now live in Georgia where it doesnt get quite cold enough to wear any of my other Carhartt coats. The sizing on this Carhartt is pretty bulky and maybe it just needs breaking in, but the arms are definitely too big for a jacket thats supposed to be slim fitting. The back is also pretty poofy compared to any of the other products I own. Feels like a really strong product, but just needs to have the sizes re-evaluated.

Finally wore out my old detroit...so ordered a medium to replace the medium I wore out. But the cut is now really weird, with the arms being too long and the upper arms being too big around. Who ever redesigned the cut needs to be fired. Probably outsourced the construction to another country who are designing this to fit the shape of their people.. Bring back the original design.. please! Will order a small now and hope it fits better. I will return or maybe both. So disappointed.

So I've washed it once and it's still pretty puffy on me, hoping the second was might do the trick. I'm about 5'10 and 180LBS and went with a size medium. The jacket sits right at my waist which doesn't really bother me . The the fit is just right when I zip it up but the material on the back makes it look super puffy, it makes it look like I have a pillow underneath the back of jacket. The arms are also really puffy, it looks like I'm a K-9 unit trainer. I really thought it'd fit like a trucker jacket on me but it just looks funny on me. Solid material and very warm.

Just two things I should point out: The arms are a bit big, and the lining is relatively thin. It's certainly made for layering, and in cooler (but not cold) climates. Other than that, the construction is good quality, and I can see the stiff material lasting me years. I'm 5'8" and about 185 pounds, and the Large size fits me very well in the shoulders and the waist. The arms, as I said, are a little bit long and loose on me, but with a hoodie or sweater underneath, that shouldn't be a problem.

The quality of materials is exceptional! Take this jacket and compare it to a jacket from a different brand and there's no comparison. You'll wear out 6 of each before one Carhartt. Only complaint might be the cut of the jacket. It runs slim around the middle, and big (both length and "Blousyness" ) in the arms. Arms are a bit long but thats fine for me, I wear mine to ride so extended arms no longer mean exposed forearms and wrists. And the extra "blousyness' allowes for ease of movement, no binding when reaching. I've heard complaints about the stiffness and agree, out of the box, its a stiff coat. Give it about 3 washes with a bit of fabric softner and its good to go! BOTTOM LINE: Top notch quality, comfortable fit, exceptional craftmanship!

On this coat the sleeves run a little long for the size. However, after a few washes, it shrunk a little and became more true to size. Other than that, I have nothing but good things to say. Great coat for fall or winter. In winter I'd recommend layering a sweatshirt underneath.

I've only had this just for a couple days now but im not happy with the fit. Im the picture that jacket does not look bulky especially in the shoulders and back, looks like it has a clean fit, wrong. I know most carhartt jackets and coats fit a little larger in size but i feel like the stay puff marshmallow man in this jacket. Even when i sit down in this jacket it raises way up over my head. Does it need to be broken in before you get the perfect fit? I dont know, right now im not happy with the fit. I love the inside and how its made, very warm and light, just not happy with the apperance. if i didnt take off the tags and already washed it, i would properly already i have sent it back.

I wanted a good American made jacket so I bought this. I was pretty upset about the quality and the durability of this jacket. The stitching is coming undone on the sleeves, and I have only had this jacket for a year. I only wear this jacket on cold days during this winter.This jacket looks good, but is not worth the money due to the below average craftsmanship. You are better off buying a jacket from another American company or buying an old Carhartt jacket when the employees took pride in their work. I was a loyal customer, but no more. This jacket is probably full of Chinese parts and materials. The jacket looks worse in person than the pictures. The stitching under the sleeves is coming undone, but it was hard to get a picture of that. I probably wore this jacket under 50 times so far. Pretty pathetic.

This jacket boggles my mind. I'm 5'8", 200 lbs (lean build) and always wore a medium in Carhartt jackets/shirts/etc with never any issue. However, the medium in this jacket has proper fit and length on the arms, but then the front area where you zipper it fits like a small and the length is like a youth. I then went to the Carhartt store and tried on a Large, which then had a perfect chest/stomach/back area and a perfect length which actually went below my waistline, but then the arms were so long I would have to be King Kong to see my hands. I just don't know what Carhartt is thinking with this cut or maybe there's a reason it's supposed to fit like this, because I see several other reviews saying the same thing !

My fianc and I are both in the military and pride ourselves on American made products. Carhartt being one of them. I have owned many carhartt jackets throughout my life and this is by far the worst jacket I have ever put on. My fianc picked it out online and totally misled to think this jacket was warm. Yet it was in the extreme weather category. I work outside as well so her seeing it in the extreme weather category thinks it would be warm. First day I wore it and I froze. My back, chest, arms u name it I was cold. I said to my fianc this is supposed to be a warm jacket? She didn't know any better but was misled by the description of the jacket. The inside as well feels like it was a blacker issued to military service men in the 20's, extremely uncomfortable. The length on the back does not correspond with the length of the arms one bit, how is one supposed to work outside and stay warm when u lose everything? I had to put 3 sweatshirts on underneath to stay warm outside. Needless to say this jacket was the the largest waste of money and a joke of an American made product for something considered extreme weather. I think I will move my purchases over to Schmidt jackets, heard everything positive about them and their prices should well top carhartt on the affordable side. Extremely disappointed in carhartt and especially after reaching out to their reps and store owners about this issue and was nothing but ignored.

This jacket's fit is outstanding! I am 5'5" and have a hard time finding anything Carhart that fits me (everything is VERY large). This is the exception. Size small fits wonderfully well!. The extra room in the back allows full arm motion and the canvas material is tough yet comfortable after a short break-in period. During our cold New Hampshire winters I only wear a flannel shirt under this jacket even in the coldest days, and it keeps me warm all day. Needless to say by now but here it goes - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT MADE IN THE USA!

I am on my 4th one of these in my 43 years, and I love them! Although very worn and nearly 10 years old, I have het to through my oldest away! The sleeves are lined with a smooth quilting that lets your arms slide freely when moving. I am 6' 1" and about 215. I get a 2xlt and once washed and dried, it fits perfect with a hooded sweat shirt underneath. I am no fan of the elastic cuffs or waistband found in many jackets so this works well for me. It is stiff and needs a wash with fabric softner, but it will become your favorite jacket quick.

This was my first time buying anything Carhartt as I just got into the union construction field. I knew I needed something tough so I bough Carhartt because that's what all the vets in the field wear. I picked the Detroit jacket because of the timeless style and largely because it is made in the great USA by union labor. I read several reviews from what seemed to be people that have worn Carhartt for a long while. They complained about the nylon lining in the sleeves no longer being blanket lined, and it sounded to me like they were being too picky. I was wrong. The blanket lining is great on the body of the jacket but the nylon lining of the sleeves cause my arms to sweat even when it's not hot out. We're still thawing out of winter here in Chicago, and my sweaty arms rubbing the nylon on a chilly March day makes my arms feel like the hotdogs in 7-Eleven on those heated rollers. I hate to complain about an American made work jacket, but I hope this review helps buyers and Carhartt (listen to the suggestion of their consumers) as I am part of the next generation of potential life long customers. I would still recommend it simply for its practical durability, not comfort. So I salute Carhartt with soggy arms for making the Detroit jacket in the USA but I respectfully ask to please get rid of the nylon and brink back the blanket lined sleeves. PS I highly advise using the True Fit guide. The jacket seemed too big at first but after a wash it shrunk just enough to make it a spot-on fit.

This a great jacket, and would rate 5 stars if the sleeves weren't big around enough for a NFL linebacker. The sleeve length is fine... Just too big around. I'm 6ft, 43inch chest, 180 lbs. Pretty average build and I stay reasonably fit, so expected a better sizing match. Fit great other than the voluminous sleeves.

Barely lasts 3 winters without fraying
Ness Ness

I've had multiple Carhartt duck jackets over the past 15 years. I've never had one last more than 3 winters without showing significant wear, primarily around the sleeves. My partner at work also has had multiple Carhartt jackets with the same issues in the last decade. Let me start off by saying that I do not do anything more strenous outside than shovel snow and walk the dog. I don't ride snowmobiles or four wheelers, I don't hunt, I don't work outside. Despite having the easiest life a jacket could hope for, they all still start falling apart at the ends of the sleeves. There's a ring of holes worn through on the outside of the sleeve around where (on the inside) the elastic cuff connects to the sleeve. It's about an inch up from the end of the sleeve. Loose, frayed threads and white blanket liner fall down and are visible from these worn holes. This is congruent with other reviews here and elsewhere, and is very disappointing. The only guess I have is that reaching my hands into the pockets provides enough wear on the end of the sleeves to start them fraying, though the idea of a jacket not being able to stand up to itself is pretty sad. I hope Carhartt reinforces their sleeve cuffs and returns to the fabled quality other posters here have experienced. To Carhartt: if I can provide any information that would be useful to you in fixing this issue on your jackets, I would be happy to. I do enjoy the brand, I prefer Made in America items of clothing, and really would recommend this jacket should this major issue get fixed. Until then, however I regret to say...

Love this jacket. Went through 2 of them in the past and then switched to a hooded jacket. That jacket was too bulky and the hood was in the way if I wore a hooded sweatshirt. Switched back to the Detroit and have not regretted it. Warm enough for the coldest weather and enough room for layering. Highly recommend this jacket.

Couldn't be more pleased with this jacket. I was a bit concerned after reading some of the reviews regarding fitment but I have to say it is pretty much spot on. I'm 6'3" and 215 lbs I went with an XL tall and couldn't be happier with the fit. The extra 2 inches in the sleeves and length fit me perfect. Little bit of room in the waist but I believe that's by design as to allow for a more comfortable fit while bending, moving etc. or if you wanted to throw on a sweatshirt or heavy shirt underneath. The construction is top notch and materials appear to be made to last. Looking forward to many years of use from this jacket.

Perfect Jacket For Working

Length is perfect for me...I'm in and out of the truck all day between job sites, and the short length is great for driving. And, wearing a tool belt, it's high enough to stay out of the way of my tools. Surprisingly warm on really cold days despite just being blanket lined. On REALLY cold or windy days, just add a hood. I have an extremes arctic hood that I use, and it steps this jacket up a notch or 2 in what it can do on deep winter windy days. Duck is pretty good at blocking the wind and shedding light rain too. I like that the blanket lined is more versatile than the other linings I have worn....still good for winter, but not too hot as a sprint and fall "emergency" jacket for when the early morning or late evening gets colder than you expected in your tee shirt. It was a good jacket, even when they started making it in other countries. Now that it's made in the USA again, and at a great price, you need one. Especially if you work for a living. Now get one and go get it dirty.

Zipper pull on the jackets are only lasting a year, then $10 to get replaced. Entire zipper is giving out on the arctic coats after a year, $30 repair. For the price and hype, these products should last a lot longer (and this is not even everyday use - only 3-4 months a year).

This jacket is very durable and rugged in both looks and function. It's exceptionally warm for fall/winter and maybe even cool enough for spring too. It's Made in the USA. I would highly recommend this to my friends. To all the Canadians: I'm from Toronto, ON and my order shipped from Etobicoke. They have warehouse(s) in Canada.

J001 Men's Duck Detroit Jacket/Blanket-Lined
McCuiston McCuiston (KY)
02/18/2012
Verified Buyer
After four years of heavy work, The entire bottom has unstitched itself, it is frayed at every hem, has holes all in it, and the blanket lining is disintegrating. I wish Carhartt still had the quality of my granddad's whose, although white now, is holding on much better - at twenty years old. The fit is perfect, however the jacket's unstitching after the second washing turns me off to Durability and Quality. The jacket never was very warm with the blanket lining, so I consider the comfort to be low. The appearance is good, but I prefer the J002 jacket with it's arctic-weight lining. Holds up much better.

I was surprised and disappointed to find that you changed the sleeves of the duck jacket to the polyester fill. I have bought this jacket many years ago and liked the blanket lining that was the reason for me buying it again. I also bought two pair of the twill pants. I have two comments, the pockets need to be deeper and the pant legs need to be tapered in a little. I know they are made to go over boots but you don't need them that wide. I am happy with my purchase and would buy again.

I bought this jacket shortly after buying my Duck Chore Coat many years ago. Takes many wearings and washings to break in as the cotton duck is seriously bulletproof. Has held up well and never have had any issues with the materials or zippers like I usually do on my "other brand" jackets. All of my Carhartt jackets have great heavy duty zippers and buttons which I really appreciate. Blanket lining is very warm. A little rigid to work in compared to my Chore Coat but it depends on what you are doing.

I bought my Detroit jacket over 25 years ago and still love it. It's a bit frayed but still tough and the most durable, comfortable coat I own. My three boys hurried to the closet to grab it first when they need to work outside. I just ordered them their own jacket. I'm sure in a few years they will be doing the same for their boys...

I have owned one of these for over ten years and cannot kill it. The sleeves are frayed, the whole bottom is frayed, but the jacket still wears and fits great. No holes, no tears, wear it at work and at play. Yeah, it's stiff at first, but with some wear it becomes a part of you. I can't wait to finally wear mine out so that I can get another one and start over. I just don't think that I'll wear it out.

This is a GREAT jacket for us workers in the north west. My Dad's work (Amerigas) got these jackets for all the drivers in the plant. I have two of these jackets, one with a hood, and then this one. Both are great! Keep you warm on cold nights watching the local high school football games. They also seem to repel water relatively well (Even though they aren't made for it). Great jacket and you can't beat the Carhartt name!

This is the toughest jacket I have ever purchased. It will undoubtedly laugh at anything you throw its way. If you work under tough conditions then this is the jacket you need! It will also smack the wind right in the face so no need to worry about working in cold and windy conditions. It will last a lifetime!! So why 2?? It is an extremely sharp looking jacket and you'll want another one for going out with the ladies on Friday and Saturday nights!!

I purchased this jacket for my husband for Christmas so he would have a good jacket for his work (construction drywall). He is 6'5" tall, but only 200 pounds. It is hard to find jackets that fit him in sleeve length without making him look like he is swimming in the jacket. I was a little hesitant about the jacket when I first received it, because the outer shell was pretty stiff. However, my husband loved it immediately. It is the first jacket he has owned that actually fits him. We washed it once and the material was far more flexible. He does alot of bending and stretching, and he says this jacket is superbly comfortable. The waist sits high enough that it doesn't interfere with his tool belt, and the extra "cuts" in the back allow him to move and extend his arms freely without cutting or binding. It also has enough room for him to layer, as Phoenix can have wide single-day temperature variances. Finally, while this may be a biased opinion, the jacket looks great on him and has a very handsome cut. My only problem now is that he likes the jacket so much that he doesn't want to wear it to work anymore because it gets covered in drywall dust and mud, and he like to wear it outside of work. I guess I will be buying him a second Detroit jacket so he can have one to knock around in and one to get dirty at work.

I work in the power generating industry and I needed a jacket that was comfortable and durable for the day to day work of removing and installing large bulky pieces of equipment without limiting movement of the body. This jacket has definitely lived up to this with no problems. This is a jacket that will keep you warm in the winters of southern California. It is a extremely comfortable jacket that I would recommend to anyone that is looking for a warm, comfortable, and durable work jacket.

I think my Detroit jacket is going on 10 years old. Its practically white, ends of sleeves are frayed, blanket lining is very worn, and its amazingly comfortable, still warm and somewhat wind resistant. I got a new one (sandstone) for Christmas a few years back but my old one is still my favorite. Thanks for a great product.

I have owned one of these coats for years, in fact the only reason I dont still have it is that it was stolen (I guess someone else liked it too). This coat is one of the most durable you will ever buy, the only wear mine got from years of work in the woods and around the family farm was the ends of the sleeves coming apart and, some general minor wear and tear. This is the best coat I have ever owned and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new coat, you will not find better quality anywhere.

One of the best. Amazing value for the money. Breaks in well, comfortable on the first wear and like a good pair of jeans, breaks in on you, and develops more character with time. This will be my third and definitely not my last. Have given away my others to friends in an effort to get them to see how good this jacket is. The blanket lining is fantastic for even shorter mid-winter wear, and ideal for fall and early spring. Does just as well in the city as in the country.

I purchased this jacket to replace the exact same jacket that I had been wearing for the last 10 years. 10 years in the construction biz for a jacket is awesome!! The jacket is extremely durable and very comfortable to wear. I also have the snap on hood which helps when its windy or extremely cold outside. Its warm enough by itself but not too heavy so you can layer underneath if needed. The short cut also is great for mobility and does not restrict movement. This is the best jacket that I have ever owned!!!

I wanted a jacket to wear when being out doors. works great, not as good in the wind because the cuff are open. if your looking for a jacket to wear when it is just cold the blanket lined gets the job done.
