Amazing. Worth the price and amazing quality. Only gripe I have, which is my own fault, is the size was bigger than expected. So if you don't want it supper baggy and you're an xl I'd go with a large.

The style & appearance of the sweatshirt were nice. However, I wouldn't classify this as a heavyweight sweatshirt. It was more of a standard weight. This particular sweatshirt would not keep anyone working out side in weather colder that 45 degrees warm.

I was excited to purchase this sweatshirt as I heard many good things about it. I purchased in a Carhartt store in local mall (Syracuse, NY) and am very disappointed I was not told that they had tall sizes. As others have stated these run a size larger, I usually wear an XL, but purchased the Large because the XL was much too big for me. However, the sleeves are very short and I would have definitely preferred the option to have longer sleeves that the Tall sizes apparently give. I am also not very impressed with the Rain Defender part of the sweatshirt. It has been raining on and off for the past two weeks where I live and I thought, perfect opportunity to test the Rain Defender sweatshirt. After 5 minutes in a light rain the material started getting soaked, it did not really every bead up the way it has for other users, so I am not sure if this particular item is defective. On a positive note, this is the heaviest sweatshirt I have ever owned and although it did take a bit to get used to I now love it. Very warm and seems extremely durable. I have worn outside to do landscaping work and no tears, holes or anything else. The 4 stars for comfort is due to the getting used to how heavy the sweatshirt is plus the tightness of the waistband and sleeve bands. They just take a bit of getting used to.

I will say the fit of the bottom of the jacket really runs small and tight and the jacket runs long down over your bottom.. It also said its heavy wt. but it's not, it's more of a thin light material jacket, haven't really been out in a heavy rain to try out the rain resistant part. I like the color is good and the second pocket is a great fit for my cell phone and it does not fall out while I'm bending down and up working. The jacket seems to be sturdy so far material is holding up good.

I purchased this hoodie in size Large Tall which fits me perfectly, it runs a little loose the way hoodie should run. It is built very well and includes a water repellent finish that works when it rains. The only negative is that Carhartt does cut them the way some sports makers do. They include tapered collar area which allows extra material. This makes for a larger hood to fully cover your head. If you expect to keep all of your head completely dry with this hood, you will not be satisfied

Ive wore a similar Carhartt sweatshirt for as long as I can remember. and what happen??? Ive had this new one for about 2 weeks now, and I'm growing to really, really,really hate it. First off , right off the bat, who the heck decided , gee lets not make it in Carhartt brown? Really, what does Guatemala not dye Carhartt brown?? The zipper sticks every time, guess Ill try to wax it,but shouldn't have to. The hood just doesn't fit right, and draw strings are to short. The little so called security pocket, is beyond useless, its actually annoying , and needs to be cut out. It sits at such an angle, that EVERY single time to put your hands in the pocket, it will get hung up on the stupid thing, beyond annoying, like I said, I plan to cut mine out. And the sleeves are just beyond annoying as well, they are so darn tight, that they actually cut the circulation off to my hands. Ive stretched them out, and they just shrink right back, to skinny, limp wrested size, but I'm sure in a couple of months if I just don't throw this jacket away, that the sleeves will be too loose. Like I said Ive worn nothing but Carhartt this, and Carhartt that for ever, but I'm really, really super dissapointed with this jacket....

I'm 6"1 160lbs and usually wear a X Large in jackets and sweatshirts (long arms and big shoulders). I purchased a large and it fits perfectly. It was a little stiff when received but one wash softened it up with very little shrinkage if any. Wore it on a trip to Syracuse NY in mid December and it was the perfect layering piece under a mid weight jacket, kept me warm and toasty.

True To Size Carhartt
Nice sweatshirt, I'd consider it midweight more than heavyweight. I was actually surprised to see water bead off of it since it's a sweatshirt more than a jacket. It's warm enough for cold days and water resistant enough for light rain. I noticed larger drops do soak through somewhat quickly but much better than layering just to go between the truck and a job site. I would definitely recommend it but went 4 stars cause "rain defender" seems like it would handle larger drops better than it does. I also hope it shrinks a little shorter when washed.

I love the durability and quality of this hoodie. The Rain Defender technology works great. As for fit, it runs large. I typically wear a Medium in most other clothing brands, but ordered a small and it fits just right. My only qualm with this product is the hood. It's too short! The hood is great around the sides but doesn't make it over my head completely. I have to be looking down in order to avoid getting my head wet when working in the rain. If the hood was just a bit longer and covered the rest of my head, this hoodie would be perfect.

I just got this and so haven't been able to test it in the field but so far...I'm impressed. It's very thick for a Hoodie. Seems to be very well made. Runs pretty true to size maybe just a little on the big side. I normally wear a 3x but got this in 2x tall. As long as it doesn't shrink too much it'll be a perfect fit. If you plan on wearing some layers under it, I'd go with your normal size first. Always been happy with carthartt products and this Hoodie does not disappoint. I've paid the same price in the past for much less quality. Great job carthartt.

I am a big guy 6'3" 340lbs. I was worried about the fit, length /width, so I ordered the 3xl tall. I am incredibly satisfied with this product the fit is perfect, plenty of room and great length to cover the plummers crack. Carhartt is the best quality clothing company I have ever come across. The rain defender works very well, I spent a half hour in the rain the day I got it and it kept me warm and dry. It has a great lined hood that doesn't restrict mobility and keeps the melon toasty. I recommend this hoodie to everyone. GREAT JOB CARHARTT!

Really happy with the purchase. 5'11" 170lbs. and a small fits me perfectly. Washed it a couple times and it hasn't shrunk which was my biggest fear as there isn't much room left. Sweatshirt is comfortable, warm and does a decent job of shielding the wind. Only complaint is the wrist cuffs are tight around my wrists... like, really tight. The hairs on my arms are sore after wearing the sweatshirt and any attempt to stretch out the cuffs hasn't worked (which shows how durable the elastic is). Next time I purchase, I might consider a medium to see if there is more room in the cuffs.

While I found the sweatshirt a little long for me, it certainly is a very comfortable/warm article of clothing. A few mornings recently I left home while it was raining and one morning in particular raining a lot more than I expected. The sweatshirt kept me dry and warm although my pants were soaked as the rain ran right off me because of the "water proof" properties of the sweatshirt. I have noticed that the zipper gets a little "sticky" when wet.

I was sent this zip up hooded sweatshirt as a test. I can tell you that it is everything that you would want for use in multiple climates. The day I recieved the sweatshirt it was raining outside and i had work to do so I put in on right out of the package. It kept me warm and dry for the enitire 6 plus hours that I was outside. The sweatshirt shed the rain and it never felt as if it was getting wet. As the weather changed to colder temperatures this sweatshirt kept me warm. Now that the temps have been in the single didgets I have just thrown my Carhartt quick duck vest over the top and I stay very warm. This is very comfortable sweatshirt, nice and soft lining. Having a zipper front makes temperature control very nice. I like the small phone pocket on the inside of the larger pocket too, this keeps my phone out of the way of tools and anything else that is in my pocket. I would strongly reccommed this sweatshirt to anyone who is active outdoors or someone that needs it for changing climates. I gave this a 5 out of 5 in every category, I tried to use it in the most extreme areas that I could and it performed very well.

I was pretty impressed with this sweatshirt on how comfortable it was. Not only did I wear it but my wife also would quick put it on when she went outside. And being Carhartt, you know that it will stand up no matter what you throw at it. The only thing I would change on it is the cell phone pocket. I have a Droid which doesn't fit but I would suggest putting a pocket on the inside with a Velcro flap. I have other Carhartt clothes and this item is in most of them.

This sweatshirt exceeds my expectations in every way! I took it with me to deer camp this season and it performed exactly as expected. The rain defender water repellent finish beaded up the rain and snow with no problems. The security sized pocket was a little small for my cellphone, but I was able to keep my truck keys secure inside the "cellphone pocket"

This is by far the best hoodie sweatshirt that I own. When I am outdoors working in the rain, this hoodie is waterproof and doesn't get my clothes wet. I like the material and it has washed well after over 10 washes. It holds the shape and also is warm in the harsh outdoor weather. I specifically like the material and it looks high quality and also keeps me warm while I am working outside. I will be purchasing more of these hoodies and would highly recommend buying this.

I've been wearing this hooded sweatshirt for about a month while working in all kinds of fall weather in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. I am really impressed over the fact that I can wear this in the rain without feeling cold and wet. It keeps me warm and dry as it repels the rain. The perfectly designed hood fits easily over my ball caps and even my bulkier knitted hats. I also like the fact that the hood does not fall down over my eyes even when I'm not wearing a hat and the drawstrings are pulled tight. This sweatshirt is also roomy enough to wear over heavy shirts and even a light vest if needed. The pockets are very roomy and strong. The waist and wrist cuffs are also snug and strong. The fabric is rugged and abrasion resistant. The zipper is Carhartt strong. It washes well and retains it's size. When I put this sweatshirt on in the morning I feel confident that I will stay warm and dry all day, even if there's a chance that I'll get caught out in the rain. I'd also like to mention that this heavyweight sweatshirt does not bind at all in the shoulders which is important to me since I have wide shoulders. I'm sure that I will get many years of use out of this rugged and functional sweatshirt.

This is an absolutely wonderful sweatshirt that exceeded my expectations. It is weird classifying this as a sweatshirt as it shares the same characteristics and comfort as one, but it is as close to a full out fall jacket as you can get. Overall Fit I am 6'1 and generally wear a size L. When I ordered this sweatshirt, I noticed that it came in an L-Tall version, so I opted for that size instead. The length was a bit longer than I thought it would be coming down a few inches past my waist (maybe 4 to 5 inches). I was concerned that it was too long, until I tried it out having the extra length definitely helped with the cold weather we have been having, as well as when I am wearing something heavy underneath it, like another sweatshirt. Not having tried the non-tall version, I would think that the regular length would have also fit me just fine. Comfort The sweatshirt was way warmer than I anticipated that it would be. The first time I wore it was to rake the leaves out of my yard. It was 38 degrees with light rain and I only had a t-shirt on underneath. Within a few minutes, I was already zipping the sweatshirt down to let in some air. It was very dry and toasty! Build Quality The zipper is very heavy duty and took a few passes to get broken in before it worked smoothly. The overall build quality is excellent no loose threads or issues with any part of it to date. I have also loaded out the pockets several times with nails, nuts, bolts and random trash. I never found any holes in the pockets or stretching/damage to the material. I also washed the sweatshirt several times and the color has not faded at all (bought mine in black). I did make the mistake of throwing it in the machine with some dirty rags and got some nice bleach stains on it now. My fault obviously guess it gives the sweatshirt some character. I will absolutely be buying another one of these again once I wear this one out but who knows how long that will be? I anticipate this sweatshirt hanging with my other Carhartt stuff for a long time before it needs a replacement.

The first thing you notice about the sweatshirt is the thickness and quality. Immediately you know this has been constructed well and will last and it has. When you put it on, the fit is great. The best thing is the movement you have with your arms, no tightness in the chest area. The length is perfect, with a ribbed bottom, it protects your lower front /back and stays there. The zipper, full length, is strong and operates perfectly. The attached hood is a good size, no need to keep pulling it forward, it stays in place. As for being warm, for the most part this is all I needed to stay warm and I wore it in temps down to 28 degrees while working outside. It does repel some wetness, but not good when it is raining , just a drizzle or when snowing. But then I wouldn't expect it to be, it is not a rain jacket. The sweatshirt has two pockets, the one on the right has a smaller pocket inside the larger, great for keys or small tools. They are roomy, yet designed so the items will not fall out. The bottom of the sleeves is also ribbed and helps keep the arms from sliding down while working with your arms above you. Overall the sweatshirt has a excellent fit, giving you movement where you need it. It is well constructed, is the perfect length and looks good after several washings. I would highly recommend the sweatshirt

This sweatshirt has great value in its material and quality. Its thick fabric has kept me warm as winter approached here in MN while allowing plenty of mobility. It appears to be made with the same craftsmanship that I've come to expect from Carhartt, I expect it to last a long time. My only complaint is the way it fits. The waistband is nice and snug but above the waistband, where the pouch pockets are, the sweatshirt is very bulky which creates an unnecessary build up of fabric. If this sweatshirt had more of a tailored fit it would be perfect!

When I look at buying work clothes, I look at it as making an investment. You can NOT go wrong with Carhartt for no matter what the category is, and this "Men's Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip-Front Sweatshirt" proves my point. Being a trucker and always spending my spare time either out in the woods or outside around the house I put my clothes through harsh environments and even harsh seasonal wet weather. I was a little skeptical when I first seen the "Rain Defender" on the tag, but knowing that it was made from Carhartt, I gave it a try and WAS NOT disappointed! Very comfortable, very warm (Even being in freezers that are set at -10F to -20F for short stints) and beyond my durability requirements. I wear it as an everyday work coat in and out of the truck as well as a chore coat around the house and woods. Caught in rain showers quite often I have grown to love the rain defender so much that it is my rain coat for moderate showers, repels the water right off Large pockets to fit almost anything to get the job done and a large hood to protect even the biggest of heads! It was by far a great investment that will last for a LONG time! Very Hap Happ Happy! Recommend to everyone!

The one thing I didn't like is the security pocket within the hand warmer pocket. It's too small for my phone and I was always catching my fingers in it and losing my keys in it.

This probably the best hoodie I have ever had or tried on. The first day I got it, it rained like crazy. It was one of those winter rains. I know it said water repellent but it was hard to believe judging from the fabric(not what I'm used to from water repellent clothing) but it performed excellent. I stayed dry and warm. It is not big and bulky but still kept me warm. And the pocket inside the right side pocket fit my phone perfectly and it never fell out. Overall I was very impressed especially with the water repellency.

I was sent this Sweat shirt in October 2014 and asked to wear it to work. I have worn it every day that I could without being too warm. This product is outstanding in everyway. It is heavy enough to stand up to brisk New England mornings and repels the normal mist to a slight drizzle that usually greets us here in the Northeast at this time of year. It pairs nicely with my Carhartt duck vest when the temperature drops and allows for great freedom of movement, so that I was able to have full reach and be able to accomplish my tasks while working outside at my trade. The change pocket inside the right front pocket is nice, but this sweat shirt would be well served by having either a hidden pocket up on the chest, or an inside pocket or two for wallet, cell phone, pencils, etc. All in all I would highly recommend this sweat shirt to tradesmen and civilians alike.

I've had this sweatshirt for a couple months now. It is warm and has done a good job of keeping me dry and comfortable. I only rated it 4 stars because the cell phone pocket is to small for a smart phone of any size (which seems to be where cell phones are going for some time now# and it takes a long time to hang dry after getting wet #I have to wash and dry after every wearing if I'm in wet conditions which is something I do not do with my other jackest/sweatshirts).

This is a great all around sweatshirt, it is not only comfortable, good looking and provides practical warmth in cool weather but also provides the confidence of being able to go out hiking or working and not worrying about the rain. I don't need to take an extra bulky rain coat out with wearing this sweatshirt since it keeps me warm and dry during sudden rain storms. The hood provides a great fit around my Carhartt ball cap giving me extra warmth and rain protection. Has a inside cell pocket to keep my cell phone dry also. Closures around waist, wrists and face provide excellent security while maintaining comfort. The three piece hood provide protection but does not restrict head movement. An all around excellent sweatshirt for everyday use at work or play.

It's nice to have a sweatshirt that is warm, soft, and water resistant so if you get caught in a light shower, you stay dry and don't have to worry about packing rain gear all the time. I got a size L, but it was a little big around the mid section. I know Carhartt usually doesn't make size M tall, but it would be a nice option on all of there products. I'm 6' tall and 170lbs so I need length in the arms and body and sometimes things don't fit perfect. Not Carhartt's fault, maybe I need to have a few more cheeseburgers!!!

I recieved my Rain Defender Hoodie on the perfect day (Cold and Raining). The body fits great and extends over your rear to keep the wind and cold out. It performed very well in the rain (meaning I didn't get wet). I've washed the hoodie several times with no problems, Fits the same and didn't shrink a bit, no color lose and still repelled the rain. Pockets are deep and with the extra small inner pocket in the right hand pocket, you don't worry about loosing items. Great hoodie for the outdoor worker or for a casual wear jacket. I thought the hood could be a little deeper (to cover your forehead when it's raining).

This product redefines comfort in a sweatshirt. My experience to anything in the past with water repellency or waterproof ability was that it was stiff or the exterior shell did not feel fabric-like. Not this. In fact, however the resistance to water is imbedded is amazing because the fabric feels very soft and comfortable to the touch. The other amazing thing is that it continues to breath extremely well almost like a thermostat was in it. When I would begin to feel warm it was almost as though it would begin to breath even better and sweating did not become a problem. Fit around all the way around was comfortable and slightly loose which is how I like it when I am working and wearing a sweatshirt. Overall, a pleasure to wear.
