Carhartt used to be my go to but this jacket is getting donated after this season. This thing ends an inch short of my hips and the sleeves are HUGE. I could fit another jacket under this ones sleeves. Looks ridiculous and less warm than previous ones I've owned. Way to outsource and ruin your product. Never buying from Carhartt again.

This jacket is Ok but I get the feeling that in the past the quality was way better. The worst thing is that they have used cheep lining. Which is sort of a man made wool lining. it is itchy and feels crappy and also in a yuck brown plaid sort of color. My second gripe is that it has a crappy zipper tag. Sort of pressed metal alloy. The overall fit is good. A large fits like an XL of course. It is nice that they have been making these jackets in a range of colors but now the are down to only 3 colors. If they made them in USA again probably would be way better.

New pocket front pocket design looks ridiculous. I will not be purchasing from Carhartt again!I guess they're no longer made in the USA. Too bad!

Nice looking jacket ruined by very odd dimensions
Casey F (NY, US)
04/17/2017
Verified Buyer
This jacket is downright comical. It must be made only for purposes of wearing a massive tool belt because if I try to wear it casually, it looks very odd. My girlfriend looks dumbfounded every time I attempt to wear it out. I'm 5'8 200 lbs and a medium had the perfect size and length in the arms, the chest was perfect as well...but the length of the jacket ruins everything...it's so high it barely clears my belly button. So I then ordered a large thinking the medium was the incorrect size, boy was I wrong again..., the length of the large was just as short as the medium, except I was swimming in the arms and chest. this jacket just doesn't make any sense. Please make it at least 1 or 2 inches longer because everybody is saying the same thing.

This jacket was perfect for me. I had ordered one of the hooded Sherpa winter jackets last year and liked it so much, I went for this one for spring and fall. I love the style and fit. It replaces an LL Bean jacket that although was nice, was too long for my build. I like waste-cut jackets and this one hit the mark!

I've had 2 of these jackets, their the best of their type I've ever owned. I bought one for all the guys on my crew and every one have them has told me it's a favorite. The only beef I have is that Carhartt has discontinued the PETROL blue color they used to offer. When I asked them about this, all I got was a boilerplate response that they were sorry they could not meet my expectations at this time. Carhartt work clothes are the best I've used, and I've been beating them in harsh, outdoor conditions for over 20 years. But I wish they would offer the color choices they used to.

My 17 year old daughter pick this one out off the rack for me. I usually get a large because I have long arms and the loose fit USED TO be in. But my daughter said it looked 'lit' so I bought it in medium. It's a little bit more snug than most of my older coats and jackets but I like the look and the sleeves are as long as most of my 'large' stuff.

Girlfriends/ wives/ whatever: if your looking for a jacket that LOOKS GOOD and can be dressed up but still has the carhartt feel and look- here it is. LOVE IT AND FITS MY BOYFRIEND PERFECTLY. It's important to note: the waist is small and the shoulder/ arm area is bigger. If you don't have a small waist (if you've got a bit extra there) you won't be able to close it. (Obviously you can get a bigger size, but the shoulders may be too big). It's an amazing jacket. Five stars baby!

Great jacket for working, I'm a mechanic and I have great movement in this doesn't bunch in the stomach when bent over and has no elastic wrist pieces that light up when welding. I literally was my jacket on warm days with a power washer and treat it with camp dry and sheds water great. It's not to warm for the fall and is perfect with a flanel under it in the winter.

Disappointing
Willy Willy
02/18/2015

The jacket itself has enough going for it to warrant a decent review, but it's got more flaws than I expected. Firstly, the sleeves are larger than you'd expect. So much so that you tend to look a little ridiculous with your arms hanging by your sides as you appear to have comically sized biceps. The zipper is a cheap metal and you can actually feel the lack of quality; a huge difference from Carhartt's usual heavy duty zippers. The material is stiff, but that's to be expected. It will rub your wrists uncomfortably. Furthermore, it's by no means a winter jacket. Blanket lining or not, it's thin and more suited towards a spring or fall jacket. The length is a huge issue. The pictures show that the jacket doesn't exactly hang low, but putting one on is a different story. If you wear a tool belt, this jacket is amazing. If you don't, be prepared to keep your hands in the awkwardly high pockets to keep it from riding up. Overall, a bit of a let down. If Carhartt threw on an extra inch or two of length and actually put ANY insulation in the sleeves, it might be a nice jacket. As it stands, it seems more like the test versions of a jacket before it's perfected and sold. My opinion: unless you have your heart set on this jacket, choose another.

This is a perfect jacket for working outside during Fall and Spring seasons. This is not a winter jacket as it is a bit on the light side, unless you layer underneath. A comment was that the pockets were useless, however, this is a work jacket that allows lots of movement so it is cut a little on the short side which accommodates a tool belt very easily. I often work outside building shelves, re-finishing furniture, pick up leaves, etc... and this jacket allows you to move freely, consequently the pockets are set high up on the body (I hardly use them). Its a little on the stiff side (especially the collar) and it took 3-4 hot washes before the fabric became comfortable but since then, it is my go to jacket for working outside. The fabric is sturdy, resists tearing, and stops mild to moderate wind gusts very well.

This is a great, well constructed, and tough mid-weight jacket. The blanket lining is comfortable and insulation level is perfect for autumn and spring. I especially like the short, waist length. It doesn't get in the way when getting in and out of a vehicle or when horseback riding. I only gave it 2 stars on appearance because I ordered the cotton wood color and it isn't as shown in the picture. While the body color is accurate from the picture, the collar and zipper on the chest pocket are not black, which is misleading. When it arrived, I noticed the collar and pocket zipper are only slightly darker than the body with no sharp contrast. It maybe a small point but in my opinion, it doesn't look as good without the accent which is shown on the website. On a practical note, collar stains will stand out more.

Great Jacket for One Wearing a Tool Belt

I needed a new jacket to deal with the cold and wet San Francisco winter, but I wanted something that can be worn over my tool belt with suspenders. The Detroit series jacket is perfect for this. I went with the J97 over the J01 because a local retailer had my size in stock. The J97 is comfortable from the start with little need for break-in. The jacket fits snugly enough to allow good movement and not let the material get in the way when working. The blanket lining is nice and warm when I wear a short-sleeve shirt with temperatures in the 40s. I think lower temperatures would be fine with a long-sleeve flannel and/or a thermal. The best part about the jacket is that the base rests just on top of my tool belt and bags and does not ride up due to being too long. I wear framer bags with a belt tape measure holster on the right side, and the jacket doesn't get in the way of me quickly getting to the tape. I only have two complaints: The inside face of the collar is made of the same canvas material as the body, and when I wore the collar down, it caused a rash on my neck for about four weeks until the cloth was well broken in (with three washes). I got around the irritation by wearing the collar up. When worn up, the collar does a good job of covering the neck area, and the zipper runs up tight to the neck. The other complaint is that the jacket is not waterproof, but I knew this when buying it. The material is thick enough to absorb a good amount of water before soaking through. I cannot comment on the longtime durability due to not having worn the jacket for more than two months, but it is holding up well from being on me forty hours a week for two months working construction outside. This is not a jacket for someone looking to wear it out on the town with an un-tucked t-shirt. The body is very short to fit over a tool belt, and an un-tucked t-shirt sticks out enough to look ridiculous in a non-job-site setting. I couldn't be happier with the jacket as a workman's jacket.

I've owned detroit jackets for years now and I have 4 different colors. They are too good looking to be used hard until they get a little worn - Ha! They are light enough to be used year round and with a flannel or wool shirt are great for all but very cold days. I like the old collars though they were color coordinated and made the jacket even sharper. Great jacket never the less. Thanks Carhartt!

This jacket is a very nice looking jacket, I use mine for going out. Fit is fantastic and comfort is great. I like the jackets that ride right at the waistline. This is a great jacket for chilly days, not really good for very cold weather. My complaint is the zipper is flimsy and hard to open at times. The sleeves are a bit long, I wear mine rolled up. But this is my second favorite jacket I own, I plan on buying more of this same jacket in other colors.

I had wanted a Carhartt jacket for a while now but never got around to getting one...until just after Christmas. Armed with gift cards I descended on the local Carhartt retailer with no particular jacket in mind until I saw the J97. We burn wood and coal. I've needed a jacket for a while now that would be light weight, warm, durable, have wind breaking capabilities, and have good range of motion, to give me mobility. I need to lug, split and stack wood, and carry 50 lb.bags of coal on my shoulders without having a jacket fall apart, get ripped, or become irretrievably soiled. The J97 does the job for me. When it gets soiled I simply throw it in the wash, and it cleans up great. In fact I wear this jacket when I'm out and about. My wife has commented that she likes the way it looks on me. The only comment I have that would be considered remotely critical is actually more of an observation. When these jackets are new they are STIFF. They break in quickly but they need to washed a couple of times before they "loosen up". Because of it's obvious durability and construction I'm looking forward to having this jacket for years of use. In fact I just purchased my second Carhartt jacket (J140) and I expect the same thing from it.

I received one for a gift several years ago, & it is the sturdiest outdoor jacket I own. I've used it while chopping down trees & clearing away the debri & it didn't even affect this garment. I carried away logs without damaging the sleeves, & I believe the canvas material definitely protects the arms/body from the sharp branches. When I was done, I just brushed it off. I think the coat was machined washed once or twice..still fits well!

I just took delivery on my first Carhartt jacket. When I took it out of the package and put it on I felt like I had owned it for a long, long time; it fit so well and felt so comfortable. I am very pleased with the quality of the materials and workmanship of this jacket. The duck is very heavy and there's a warm blanket lining. It keeps me warm without getting too hot. The zippers are nice an heavy so I'm sure they will last a long time. I also love the look of the jacket. It is casual but I will certainly wear it everywhere.

I absolutley love these coats. I have 2 of them, one for work and the other for a good coat. I have had my work coat for 2-3 years and it's still in good shape. They are really heavy and thick coats and keep you warm on the really cold days.

I've had my brown, blanket lined Detroit Jacket going on three years. I love it!! It's comfortable and stylish to wear out on the town and to work. I wear it to work, but at work, I don't want to get it dirty!!

Purchased this jacket to wear to and from work, that was a mistake. I wear it everywhere, taking the kids to school, running errands, standing on the lacrosse sidelines, camping, ect. What a nice coat just the right amount of insulation to keep the cold out without overheating you as the sun drops and the night settles in.

The best part of this jacket for me is the sleeve length. Being long armed it's hard for me to find clothes to give me proper coverage. Thanx Carhartt.

I own a number of Carhartt coats, and every one is great. This one is no exception. It looks great, feels great and is tough as nails. I particularly like the chest pocket for my phone...it keeps me from having to dig around inside the coat when it's cold. Thanks, Carhartt.

nice jacket, very durable materials used, very good quality, seams are sewn straight, heavy duty zipper that won't break, thick material used on outside of coat. I run heavy equipment, so i'm in the outdoors all day and carhartt products are what I strickly use to keep warm, carhartt products hold up better than any other brands I've tried.

All we can say is this is the nicest, most durable jacket out there. Obivoulsy, we are not the only ones who think so; my husbands last one was stolen out of his work truck. It was just about five years old and still going strong, so strong that I purchased this one to repalce it. Our son liked it so much we bought him the same one in gray for Christmas.

I bought this jacket 2 years ago in the fall when I outgrew my Duck Active Jacket. I bought it in Carhartt brown and it looks great! I get compliments on it all the time because of it's timeless rugged looks. I usually wear this jacket from October to mid December, and then from mid Febuary to the end of March in northern Connecticut so it is plenty warm. I wash this jacket once a year so that I can show off all my hard work when I wear it.

I'm on my second Detroit Jacket. The first lasted me three seasons! Aside from a few holes in the forearms, that one is still holing up. Great value for the price.
