Thank you for your feedback.
It fits perfectly and is everything I expected for a nice cool weather jacket.
In love with it its so warm and wind resistant when wearing only thing that's cold is my face and legs!
I bought this for my brother in law, as he wanted a sweatshirt just like my dad's work coat (this being it).

    Bought this for my husband for our 2nd anniversary since the 2nd theme is "cotton". This replaced his old Carhartt zip hoodie that was literally falling apart and had a busted zipper. Now he loves this one too. He likes the mesh on the inside, the fact that its rain-resistant, the pockets are "soft" on the inside, and the zipper/zipper-pull is metal instead of plastic. (He tends to destroy clothes at work). My husband is a size L, and it looked a little baggy at first but I think it was just cause it was still "new" and not broken in. Fits great now.
    Hopefully this one will last several years, but when it finally goes we're buying the same thing again!

    I didn't buy this on Amazon, but at Tractor Supply for the same price as Amazon after shipping (just wanted to try it on and decided to buy on the spot). I'm 6'2" and 160lbs. I tried on both the Medium and Large and while both fit fine, the medium was just a bit less baggy while still leaving room. I was after the relaxed, big-but-classy sweatshirt look and this fit the bill. The thermal lining is great because it insulates well but the material always feels dry and cool to the skin, so the sweatshirt will keep you warm when it's quite cold, but can be worn when it's 65 degrees without overheating.

    This blends a clean look with durability and the ability to wear it from 20-65 degrees. Good investment.

    I've had this sweatshirt for months now and I have to say it's a great go between when a jacket is too hot and a long sleeve thermal isn't enough. I'm 5'9 190 lbs with an athletic build. Having bought Carhartt stuff before I know it can run a little large. I got the sweatshirt in a medium and am definitely happy with the size. A large would have been much too big. The thermal lining is extremely warm but can also make the sweatshirt feel a little bulky. Often times I only need a T-shirt under this since it's so warm. The rain defender exterior definitely helps repel some water but it's not water proof. You don't want to be standing outside in a storm for a long period of time. This isn't a sweatshirt I would wear as a layer under a jacket. It's too bulky for that. You want to wear this as a jacket when a winter coat would be too much. I like to wear it when I'm inside on a job site but where heat might not be present. It gives me more flexibility and range of movement when working than if I had a jacket on but it still keeps me plenty warm. I've read how others say the thermal lining is scratchy and not soft. If you want soft go buy a pillow. If you want to be extremely warm while just wearing a sweatshirt then buy this.

    Carhartt has always been known for durable outerwear, & for a zip-up hoody, this seems to be holding up pretty well. The lining does hold more warmth & it keeps you dryer in the rain with that rain defender stuff & I love the inside zipper pocket. The only problem with it that I can see, is that it seems to run slightly larger than expected, like half a size longer in the torso & sleeves, but that's about it. Not the biggest problem here when other reviews said about as much before I bought it & it might shrink down after washing & drying.

    This thermal is really good but runs a tad large. I'm 6'3, 250lbs. XXL long works most often. This XXL Reg is big but....I just got it a week ago and haven't washed it or even worn it much. That said, it does repel water...at least right out of the box. I'm in rain country in the Pacific Northwest so repellent fabric is key . Insulation on this is great. Keep in mind though this is not a windbreaker. I was in 10 mph sustained winds with 25 mph gusts and wind will go through this fabric like money goes through pockets in D.C. I gave it four stars because I really like it for the warmth, pockets (interior especially..wish it had two), and initial water repellent feature. My review lacks a star because so far it is too much fabric for an XXL Reg (especially around the gut...shoulders are fine). I work with this clothing and Carhartt is terrific but I can't work well with a lot of excess slop or slack draped over me. Also, while I get sucked in to all these manufacturer's claims that they have the Holy Grail on water resistance, I typically find that after about 7 washes you're back to basic cotton/poly fabric in the first place. If after I get to that point and this product holds up as advertised, I'll amend my rating.

    Although I wished the color had been darker (it looks more like a faded black) it is heavy-duty and warm.

    I wear a medium in just about any other brand of coat and from past experiences I ordered a small in this Carhartt. Sadly this coat still goes down way past my waist but i still wear it hoping that maybe just maybe it will shrink up a little. The jacket is very rugged and feels very solid I am in no doubt that this jacket will last a very long time. It is pretty waterproof and for the time being a little stiff. Very nice product but I would be much happier if Carhartt didnt make everything soo big. Come on Carhartt we all arent huge men!

    Let me start off by saying my only issue with this hoodie is just that; the hood. I purchased my first Carhartt hoodie when i was about 16 years old. It was a Carhartt J149. I was young and has just started working outside and needed a durable comfortable warm good looking hoodie. The J149 was the perfect fit. It was pricey (i think 50 bucks even back then) but seemed worth it compared to any other option. Now after 10 years of loyal service (I wore it 6 months a year every day) that very hoodie has gotten to a point where it is still wearable but starting to look less socially acceptable than I would like. So I shop around for an identical replacement. I purchased this hoodie thinking it was the same as my old J149. Even when it arrived and I inspected it and tried it on I was sure I had found what I was looking for. Now after wearing it a couple times I'm realizing something is very very wrong. Everything is perfect and exactly the same as the J149..... except the HOOD. It is smaller. It Isnt drastically smaller but just enough for me to pretty much not want it any more. It took very careful side by side comparison for me to realize this because the lengths of both hoodies are identical in every way. It is the depth that has shrank. My biggest issue with every hoodie is that generally the hoods are way way to small.... as in I look odd wearing them because it would appear my shoulders are attached to my ears. I have uploaded pictures of the side by side. As you can tell 10 years worth of washing has faded the old one. For now I will scour the internet in search of the good ol' J149. I dont even care what color it is. Or maybe ill cut the hood off my old one and sew it onto the new.
