Nice Hoodie the Zipper Ruins
on December 23, 2011
From a quality standpoint, I think it is what you expect from Carhartt. It is a little rugged inside but it's built for people who are layering their clothing for working or playing outside. There is nothing that particularly stands out to me which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's your standard hooded sweatshirt that seems like it is built to last many years of washes.
My gripe those is with the zipper. It's a strong brass zipper that doesn't have a lot of flexbility to it. This leads to an awkward fit near the bottom. The last few inches sort of lock into place and don't fall naturally. It's tough to explain, but with most hooded sweatshirts, the zipper is more flexibile and doesn't cause the stiffness or ripples that this one does. It might not bother people wearing this strictly as a jacket, but I don't think it makes it a great hoodie.
