Good quality jacket,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Carhartt Men's Quilted Flannel Lined Sandstone Active Jacket J130 (Apparel)
I think i found my new favorite jacket.
Im always looking for Carhartt jackets or coats and i had the J140 which is basically the same but the outer shell is not as soft.This model is sandstone and is much softer and has a weathered look.
The liner is quilted which is much thicker than blanket or thermal lined types.Quilt (and Sherpa) liners are much more comfortable when wearing short sleeve shirts.
Its not as heavy as my other coats and yet keeps me nice and toasty even if its 30 deg outside.I can even wear this in colder climate if i layer it with a long sleeve thermal shirt which i prefer than a big bulky jacket.
In my experience Carhartt will last you a long time even if you abuse it and this one is no exception.I have a barn coat that i use at work for 11 years and still going strong.
You pay a little bit more for this jacket but if it last you a lifetime so what.
Went up to the mountains today... snow,30 deg. and 50 mph gust.It was cold as hell but this jacket blocked the wind and kept me warm.All i had was a long sleeve t shirt underneath and i was comfortable.Definitely recommended to anybody looking for a warm jacket that is not too bulky.I really want another one with a different color coz i liked it so much.
Just be aware that Carhartt makes another jacket exactly like this but its not sandstone.Its just as good but this kind is a much softer outer shell.

how tall are you?

30 degrees is just below freezing. "Cold as hell" would be more like sub zero temperatures. How would this jacket fare in those temperatures?

Don't forget that he mentioned 50 mph gusts. That would definitely make a difference!

your point is...?

Would this coat work in (-20) degree centigrade and in snow?

Assuming you mean "centigrade" as in Celsius, and the in parenthesis mark is of no real purpose, then, according to an internet search, -20 Celsius = -4 Fahrenheit. I haven't used this jacket in temperatures quite that cold, but it was below freezing in Southeast Missouri, where I live -- how far below freezing I do not remember (wish I did, for my own sake at least) -- and I experienced uncomfortable exuding of sweat while on the way to the grocery store. It was a sunny day, there may have been snow on the ground, I don't remember really, so the same sweating may have occurred even I'd been walking...I would definitely not wear this jacket if you're not going outside and staying outside. It might be cool/cold to wear this in -4F temps, but I'm sure you'd survive unless you were spending like 4 hours outside...and as Melanie Lietz mentioned, the wind speed can make a difference, especially at -4 degrees. If you're sensitive to cool weather, you may want to wear a heavy shirt underneath. Also, although I've gained weight since I received this (as a gift courtesy of my awesome sister), I requested/received a medium, since there were all kinds of gripes about how big this this thing was, and at the time I was wearing medium-large size clothing (depending on who made the shirt I was wearing at any given time) and I think after gaining 35+ pounds, this thing might not even fit me this winter. So I might consider ordering a size up or sticking with whatever size you normally wear, if you have a normal size (most of my shirts etc are second hand, so the tags may be outdated [clothing sizes were smaller many moons ago] and the stuff I do buy brand new is dirt cheap WalMart type stuff, which, for all I know, may have a tendency to have less reliable tagging than whatever clothing you buy regularly...just speaking hypothetically, since like I said every brand tags their clothes differently it seems...)

@Jonathan Cardwell - I think @Junior Angeles was referring to the fact that this review shows up on the J140 and J130 products page. Just to clarify for anyone else this review is for the J130!
