Snaps are very poor quality
on December 15, 2015
First let me say the coat is made exceptionally well and looks great, and if it wasn't for the low quality snaps I would of given it 5 stars.I purchased it from a local store because of all the comments of how large they fit, so I wanted to try it on first. I am about 5'10" 194lbs athletic build and a 34" waist and the medium fit perfect.
Now for my critique, like many others have stated, the snaps are exceptionally WEAK! From the day I bought it the snaps just never felt like they snapped in securely. But I liked the look of the coat so much that I just assumed that is how they are made. But almost right away the snaps would randomly unsnap throughout the day with very little resistance. Why on earth would a company like Carhart use such inferior snaps? The rest of the coat seams to be very high quality except the snaps! What good is a high quality coat if you have to keep resnapping it closed? My wife like the look of this model the best, so I may take it to my seamstress and have her install USA made high quality snaps. But why should I have to?
