It’s for hunting and it works good great for outdoor weather. Yes we have ordered another one and have old a few people about them

| Michael K. 30-11-2022 13:32

Great coat. This is my third one.

| Larry G. 28-11-2022 19:50

I live in Colorado so this is the best brain defender sweeter ever.

| Kevin W. 28-11-2022 18:54

Very well pleased

| Jan T. 26-11-2022 22:34

Loose Fit means there is plenty of room in the front for your stomach. Even if you don't have a stomach, it would appear so, since the zipper is stiff. <br />This product has quite a bit of polyester in it.

| Nicholas C. 24-11-2022 21:21

Fits perfect and supper warm

| Edgar D. 24-11-2022 16:28

I ordered 14 of these sweaters to personalize them for my coworkers and myself. Some of us never owned a carhartt, and we all loved these comfortable and cozy sweaters!!!! They are awesome! Perfect for Chicago weather, and really does hold up against the rain! <br />I would definitely try more Carhartt products in the future!

| Q 21-11-2022 19:24

Love the rain defender series. Fit is good, and they are warm and comfortable. Can’t ask for more.

| Ronald S. 21-11-2022 15:41

Warm, fits perfectly, looks good. I like it a lot.

| Naomi M. 21-11-2022 14:07

Perfect fit, warmth for this Texas weather. Keeps the cold out.

| MARK Y. 18-11-2022 16:52

It needs functional inside pockets inside the hoodie The small inside pocket inside the right pocket dumps my glasses when sitting down. Fortunately, somebody noticed these glasses on the chair.

| Peter D. 18-11-2022 02:35

It is not the same jacket that I thought that I ordered. <br /> I ordered with the numbered code on present jacket tag,100614 001. Which is a “original fit”<br /> The new jacket is the same code number , but is labeled a “loose fit”. Also It appears to be made from a thinner material.<br /> Time will tell as to comfort and long it will last<br /> It’s price was less so that’s a good thing, I think ??

| Carl G. 17-11-2022 18:54

Love it. Nice and warm.

| John H. 16-11-2022 14:24

Nice jacket,warm and comfortable

| William F. 14-11-2022 23:30

The sweat shirts are very good and very durable they do run a little bit big but other then that I am very satisfied

| Mary B. 14-11-2022 20:08

I have some of these I love them. I ordered these for Christmas gifts..

| Dan L. 14-11-2022 18:41

?? Great That’s great size and everything is really nice<br /><br />Thank you very much

| Andrew W. 14-11-2022 15:10

Great product

| Thomas D. 13-11-2022 15:25

I'm 5'8" 115 lbs. Bought hoodie in Small. Body too big, hood too small. Good heavy material

| Bruce D. 13-11-2022 12:23

Perfect fit and was exactly what I needed. Great description online

| Debra F. 11-11-2022 17:06

good jacket

| Peter B. 10-11-2022 12:25

Best one I’ve owned!! Highly recommend

| John R. 07-11-2022 17:27

It’s a five for sure, I’m very pleased with the looks, fit and rugged zipper. Bravo to Carhartt for another great product!

| KAREN P. 07-11-2022 11:51

My son loves it, says "best birthday gift!" It's cozy and warm, with plenty of room.

| Kay S. 05-11-2022 17:09

Very comfortable and a great fit

| Tom E. 29-10-2022 19:50

Good, heavy, dry, warmth.

| B H. 28-10-2022 01:10

I still have my original USA ???? Made Carhartt from 1998 Still holding up ... Carhartt like everyone else decided to Move an American company and let Foriegn countries make Carhartt its legacy is meaningless now

| Jessica h. 20-10-2022 00:03

Very warm, nice weight and comfortable

| Joe D. 05-10-2022 20:23

This is the second rain defender sweat shirt I've owned; frankly, I only ordered this one because my six year old sweatshirt is too big for me now.<br />Obviously, one will not wear this and stay dry in a down pour, but for those misty mornings it fits the bill.<br /><br />The zipper is heavy duty and has never stuck on me like lesser quality zipped shirts do. <br /><br />If I could afford more I'd buy one in every color. This sweat shirt will not let you down.

| Dennis p. 02-10-2022 18:38

Not warm enough and made cheap would love a new one shipped

| Nicholas S. 01-10-2022 17:52

Great fit, weight and comfort. Hoping it maintains its hydrophobic characteristic as it endures more washes.

| Sandra S. 30-09-2022 17:20

My husband loves his. I bought these as gifts.

| Daniel G. 26-09-2022 11:29

Carhartt never disappoints

| james p. 19-09-2022 22:08

Typical, top notch carhartt quality. Keep up the good work!

| Brian M. 17-09-2022 17:51

I love it. I had one years ago and I finally got another one. I will be getting all the colors.

| Sergio H. 15-09-2022 21:45

It looks great and fits perfectly. It’s also cozy and warm and I love the height quality of the material. We’ll done!

| Leanne G. 15-09-2022 21:28

My man really likes it and he is 6'5" and the TALL sizes fit great!

| Patrick D. 23-08-2022 18:23

Stays dry and fits good

| James W. 22-08-2022 17:57

Sorry this was a gift to my brother. He never had a carhartt jacket, pants, now he has one of the best sweatshirts their is. He loved it and can’t wait to try it out.

| Randy 20-08-2022 02:01

Kept me warm and dry on fishing trip to alaska

| Karalee K. 08-07-2022 17:27

A bit warm for now but just what i need for chilly niye

| Robin K. 22-06-2022 18:13

I was looking for a heavyweight zip up hoodie and this turned out to be just what I was looking for. The material is very heavy and it is quality construction. I am 5'9" 160 and medium fit perfectly. It is getting hard to find well made heavy duty sweatshirts but this is a good answer.

| Eileen R. 22-06-2022 17:33

I bought this for my dad for Father's Day but he is in Europe so I haven't given it to him yet. I can tell that the quality is great though. Thank you for another well made product.

| Adam R. 29-05-2022 17:56

It’s nothin like it was 2 years ago. It’s not heavyweight at all. It’s not lined like my original rain defender with it silk screened on sleeve. Security pocket is a joke, just a small thin pocket sewn in main pocket. Sleeves are NOT for tall people and without the better liner sleeves ride up quick. Doesn’t block wind and don’t trust to defend with rain. The length is tall. The Torso fit ok but sleeves make me hate this along with silly fleeced inside is not heavy and not for any biker. Zipper even got cheaper not heavy duty.

| Joann N. 23-05-2022 17:26

Great and wear it alot

| FREDERIC S. 16-05-2022 23:22

Great heavy weight.<br />Nice extra hidden pocket for phone in front pocket.<br />Good construction.<br />Wish the Zipper was heavier duty / larger tooth.<br />Would be great if you added an interior pocket.

| Jackie D. 06-05-2022 11:49

Love these hoodies!!!

| Kris N. 04-05-2022 17:25

Second set of these hoodies over the last 4-5 years. Love’em. Quality!

| SEAN K. 28-04-2022 17:25

great shirt, my second

| LINWOOD M. 24-04-2022 19:30

I was disappointed in the heavy weight hooded sweatshirt. I was expecting the same heavy weight type that was sold several years ago. This was not in my opinion the same quality as in past. Plus, its too big.

| NICHOLE P. 24-04-2022 17:47

My husband and son ?? these sweatshirts for fall thru spring! They say you never feel the wind or rain thru them.

| Frank V. 20-04-2022 18:29

I like the thickness

| William R. 17-04-2022 17:16

Great sweatshirt!

| greg e. 10-04-2022 17:27

Great sweatshirt! I bought to replace the same one from 16 years ago. Good weight and I like the rain defender quality.

| Rolfe H. 09-04-2022 10:55

Fits well and it is warm. Have not had an opportunity to test the rain defender part however.

| Dave F. 05-04-2022 02:55


| Michele U. 04-04-2022 17:09

Love it a bit big but I am super happy

| Gary R. 01-04-2022 17:43

I am really enjoying it thank you very much and I’m actually wearing it right now.

| Kelly L. 31-03-2022 20:54

It is my husband!s favorite sweatshirt..

| Nate H. 31-03-2022 17:19

Way bigger and looser than I expected. Want to return it but I don't have the tags anymore.

| TODD U. 29-03-2022 14:24

Good quality, very comfortable, soft inside, and I used it in a drizzling rain and it did keep me dry. I was worried about it being too short so I got the long version and its a bit too long I'm 5'8 200lbs

| Raul M. 29-03-2022 01:45

I really liked this sweater, only complaint I have is the sizing. I ordered a large and forgot this brand can run a little bigger. I would order this again and loved the orange color.

| Danarola 22-03-2022 19:22

Purchased a small. Nice sweater and good quality overall but would’ve gone one size down if it was available. Size does run large and would recommend to go a size down.

| Keith B. 21-03-2022 01:32

Great fit for my build, the torso doesn't ride up when you lift your arms and it definitely helps protect from rainy weather

| Sue L. 20-03-2022 18:02

Excellent sweatshirt. Fits true to size. Great quality. Fast shipping.

| Zachery T. 16-03-2022 20:05

Very nice jacket warm and comfortable

| Marian G. 15-03-2022 17:27

Nice, heavy sweatshirt. Keeps me warm on the windy, snowy days,

| Tinker 15-03-2022 16:57

I like this sweatshirt and the crew neck version a lot. I was reading some critical reviews and I find a lot to disagree with, starting with the DWR coating. I live on the coast in the Pacific Northwest where a hoodie is a mandatory part of your wardrobe, and where we get a lot of rain. A lot. These don't do much good in a driving downpour (neither does Gore-Tex) but for everything less than that - and for snow - they keep me dry enough to be comfortable outdoors.<br /><br />Some complain about always getting their finger caught in the sleeve inside the right hand pocket. Nonsense! All you need to do is push against the outside of the pocket, which, if you watch how you put your hand into any coat pocket, is pretty much how we do it.<br /><br />I've given them four stars, not five, because (a) the water beads up on them but it doesn't shake off like it does with nylon rain gear and that's a pain if you're leaving in a vehicle, and (b) the crew neck version is voluminous. I'm not svelte and it's still too roomy. I'd rate it 7 stars if it were available in a relaxed fit version.<br /><br />These are very good sweatshirts. I highly recommend them.

| Randy C. 14-03-2022 20:52

Excellent ??

| Randy W. 14-03-2022 20:38

Great jacket

| Terrin R. 14-03-2022 18:53


| Sandy K. 14-03-2022 02:26

Would haved liked an inside phone pocket

| Steven R. 13-03-2022 01:27

Item came as described on website. My last sweatshirt is still wearable after ten years. I expect to buy another in ten years. Very nice quality. I recommend it to everyone.

| Brian L. 12-03-2022 04:33

The zipper is nice. Don't have to worry about the zipper breaking. Nice snug cuffs for fit. Downside is feel of material isn't quit as soft as my old hoodie. The other down side is I would of liked blaze orange for an option for hunting.

| ARLENE R. 11-03-2022 21:49

I have purchased the heavyweight zippered sweatshirt before and I loved it. They no longer seem to carry it so I purchased the heavyweight Rain Defender one. Different material and not as heavy. I don’t really care for it.

| Wendy 10-03-2022 18:33

My husband loves the fit, comfort and that this sweatshirt really keeps the cold out when layered with his coat- when it is 20 below or colder! When it is above 25 degrees out my husband often finds that he can just wear this without a coat, when he is working.

| DEE B. 09-03-2022 21:08

My husband lives it. It’s warmer than his regular sweatshirt. I will probably order another one for Christmas!

| Gary J. 07-03-2022 18:58

I have 3 and they all fit and wear well. I have the heavy weight, medium weight and light weight hoodies

| Judd S. 05-03-2022 19:11

Nice heavy material, soft interior. Good fit (6’2” 270). Just what I was looking for.

| Charles B. 04-03-2022 21:09

Great fit and very comfortable. I’m impressed how much it blocks out the wind. The sleeve length is perfect, it doesn’t pull up short when reaching for something.

| Sean P. 03-03-2022 18:30

Love it best jacket I have ever owned

| Brian B. 03-03-2022 12:48

Get more in stock or the other colors.

| David S. 02-03-2022 20:57

Great hoodie always buy carhartt to keep warm

| Jerry B. 02-03-2022 20:20

I’m highly disappointed with the lining material. The lint is so bad a light color shirt cannot be worn underneath. Give me the old style lining with the new outerwear and it would be a five star rating. Best carry a lint roller or wear only black shirts…

| Margaret M. 01-03-2022 20:10

My husband purchased the lighter weight version from Costco, which I loved but wanted my own. I'm so pleased with this sweatshirt and perfect for sitting around the fire pit during fall and early spring nights.

| Ray W. 01-03-2022 02:59

It is described as heavy but I say its mid.

| Allison M. 28-02-2022 22:46

It’s not my first one. I work in a shipyard and it gets cold.

| Kevin M. 27-02-2022 01:16

First it's not orange, I don't know what color this is but it<br />'s not orange. It's not lined, It don't have an inside pocket. It is not half the sweatshirt I got 20 years ago which I am still wearing because you have quit making good sweatshirt these days. It was not made in Mexico. So that was just more fake Ad. My old J149 I wore to work every day for 20 years is still a better sweatshirt that my $70 new shirt. No I am not a bit happy with this sweatshirt.

| Alex C. 24-02-2022 18:26

Love this for the light snow, even holds up a while in the negative temperatures in Minnesota 10/10

| Miner Glyn 23-02-2022 21:07

I have had 2 of these now and the zipper failed on both. The large brass zipper failed on the hoodie even though the hoodie was still in great condition.

| Chief 22-02-2022 19:13

Great quality long lasting <br />Very warm <br />I wear a sweatshirt underneath and T-shirt, best hoodie zippered sweatshirt I have ever purchased.<br />Have purchased 3-4 of them through the years.<br />Will purchase again ,I would recommend this to anyone who spends time in the cold.

| Eddee C. 22-02-2022 19:03

Bought for my husband and he loves it!

| david m. 22-02-2022 07:42

Will be ordering another one

| Blake N. 21-02-2022 18:07

Great jacket! Feels like it was made custom for me. Has that already worn in feeling and is very warm and functional. I'm sure it will last me a long time but I would buy a other in a minute.

| Kim M. 21-02-2022 16:37

Fits well and very comfortable

| Ronald W. 21-02-2022 02:07

Not much of a selection. Only loose fit in navy blue. Wish I could get a regular fit in black with a light blue lining inside of hood. The hood draw strings will disappear inside hood when washed. You should tie a knot on ends first.

| Chad C. 20-02-2022 19:20

I love it, warm and works great

| Denise G. 20-02-2022 00:56

Very comfortable. I love it. I recommend this.

| john r. 19-02-2022 19:40

Fits true to size , warm comfortable not bulky like other brands

| Edward H. 19-02-2022 19:06

Very loose in the belly, if I had a beer but it would be perfect.

| Robert H. 19-02-2022 05:05

Very nice sweatshirt, tough and warm

| James B. 18-02-2022 23:38

No ! It is supposed to be heavy wieght but was light. I wanted the fur lined<br />Carhartt heavy jacket but it looks like you don"t make it anymore,

| Patrick p. 18-02-2022 23:08

Love it! Just as they say

| Kathleen 09-02-2022 19:50

Added the full zip to my Carhartt sweatshirt collection and am so glad I did. Been wearing it under my Carhartt Duck Washed Vest and its a perfect match!! Warm, comfortable and easy to move!!!!

| Billy B. 09-02-2022 18:36

Fits a little too loose. Definitely bigger than my rain defender hoodie with the little zipper.

| Teri Z. 05-01-2022 05:48

Nice quality, easy-to-navigate website, timely delivery, runs large.

| William M. 02-01-2022 13:41

This is my second mid weight Sweat jacket.<br />Great for keeping dry in mild rain. This is not a rain coat but it does keep you very dry and warm. Perfect for fall and early spring outdoors.

| Carl P. 24-12-2021 02:31

I wish it had a inside pocket for your phone

| Vincent W. 23-12-2021 18:08

I like the sweatshirt so far. It is warm and comfortable. It would be nice if it had an inside pocket for a wallet or phone. I am about 7 feet tall and the large tall fits nicely. Hopefully it will hold up in the washing machine and dryer.

| scott t. 20-12-2021 19:28

It is just like my old carhartt I am super happy Thank You !

| Byron B. 20-12-2021 18:11

Its best to spend a little extra on Carhartt products to get the quality and longevity.

| heather g. 18-12-2021 18:09

Superb product! High quality, warm, water resistant material.

| Michael W. 17-12-2021 20:30

My wife bought the jacket for me and I love it.

| Adrian H. 17-12-2021 18:05

First Carhart hoodie and it is awesome. Love the weight and quality. Fits perfectly and feels amazing. I’m a female size Med-Large, 5’9”, 174lbs. I got this In Medium. I’m always cold so this is perfect!

| Sonny F. 17-12-2021 18:03

All of my hoodies are 5 star carrhahtt doesn't make anything that isn't great

| Basil M. 17-12-2021 17:19

for the wife. She loves it. Fits to her pecs.

| Dano860 16-12-2021 21:38

It looks as though she will love it. <br />It’s a Xmas gift for my granddaughter.

| Jane S. 16-12-2021 19:03

Bought it as a Christmas gift for my son-in-law. Hopefully he will like it.

| Jane S. 16-12-2021 19:03

Bought it as a Christmas gift for my son-in-law. Hopefully he will like it.

| Linda G. 16-12-2021 18:08

Good fit, extra warm -- we want to order another in a different color but there are no Tall XL available - when will they be back in stock, please?

| William K. 15-12-2021 23:19

This is a Xmas gift

| Ernest 15-12-2021 22:37

The best jacket I’ve ever had!!! This by far the warmest jacket I’ve had and I recommend it to everyone!!!

| Sithigh 15-12-2021 21:21

It's the RIGHT ONE! They sell out so quick that I deliberately bought 1.5 X larger then necessary so I can also wear it over top of everything else. I still can't believe how warm this 12 oz. is. My wife's 22 year old Green canvas jacket is closer to 22 oz. and I'm finally glad I couldn't find one. This will always be lighter and more comfortable even if I ever have to wear this Heavyweight over a middleweight and a regular for freezing winds at night. That's right, I just bought 3 Carhartt hoodies and can empty the rest of the closet. But I wish they would rub pure bees wax on the zipper.

| Tom S. 15-12-2021 19:11

Great and warm.<br />Perfect for early morning runs in the winter. <br />May want to use together with puffer.

| Laura K. 15-12-2021 06:43

i ordered mens medium for both my boys who are 18- one is 5’9” and 150lbs the other is 6’ and 150. lbs. the hoodies were HUGE. looked like an extra large on them. sent them back and didn’t exchange because they don’t look waterproof to me, they just look like a thick cotton hoodie.

| Charles F. 14-12-2021 18:03

Very comfortable, high quality. Great fit. Exactly what I was looking for.

| Joan S. 14-12-2021 11:52

Bought for my son living in Alaska, He found it to be very warm and comfortable until it reached -40F below zero. He said he would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to stay warm and dry. It was true to size also.

| Duane R. 14-12-2021 01:55

Great hoodie.

| A C. 14-12-2021 00:44

I love this hoodie! I find it super warm with its thermal lining and thickness. It works as an outer layer in cold weather coupled with a sweater underneath. It repels rain quite well in mild downpours for limited periods of time. It’s held<br />up nicely so far under rugged conditions. I would recommend this to any of my fellow workers.

| Ricardo E. 13-12-2021 03:06

Love it. Nice fit and I've been out in a light rain and it works as advertised.

| Sharon W. 12-12-2021 22:33

This was a birthday gift for my farmer husband and he loves it!!

| Manuela V. 12-12-2021 18:18

Looks great feels great

| Susie W. 12-12-2021 12:50

Husband loves it ! Great quality !

| Judy B. 11-12-2021 22:40

My husband likes it real well! It’s very warm and works for his morning walks here in Washington State.

| Michael C. 11-12-2021 21:04

Very thick and warm. Fits perfectly. I love all my Carhartt.

| LINDA M. 11-12-2021 19:06

He likes it and would recommend it.

| Blaise H. 10-12-2021 18:17

Been wearing the jacket for more than a month now. Love the fit, the zipper seems like it will last and most of all its very warm! Would definitely recommend to anyone on the fence about this jacket.

| Walter D. 10-12-2021 17:47

The best sweater I ever had<br />Very warm .

| Nanette P. 10-12-2021 14:30

I love my Carhartt ?? its warm and stylish. Thank you ??

| Marry M. 09-12-2021 23:14

Excellent product as always from carhartt !!

| Laura T. 09-12-2021 21:55

It was a gift. Partner loved it!! Would definitely recommend.

| Kee C. 09-12-2021 18:56

I like it a lot, it fits over everything, and you don’t have to worry about getting it all dirty.

| DARREN G. 09-12-2021 18:09

This is perfect for fall / early winter or if it’s a bit wet out. Great fit and layered thickness for warmth.

| Rick O. 08-12-2021 23:47

Great fit and quality

| jerry l. 08-12-2021 21:00

I like the way it fits on me and keeps me warm

| Thomas N. 08-12-2021 20:53

Love it. Really warm and heavy weight. Not for warm days. As advertised.

| Ruben C. 08-12-2021 19:17

I work in a refrigerated warehouse and this sweater is perfect. Good insulation and really comfortable. The only things is the handle on the zipper broke after having this hoodie for almost a year.

| Amber K. 08-12-2021 18:51

Ordered these for our employees as Christmas gifts and they love them. These hoodies are definitely loose fit. They are big enough that our guys can wear something warm underneath still.

| Nathaniel D. 08-12-2021 02:53

I love it carhartt sweatshirts r my favorite. Carhart is great quality clothing

| Denise D. 07-12-2021 18:17

I’ve been wanting a carhartt coat for some time. I finally decided I would get one

| Judy S. 07-12-2021 18:12

My husband absolute loves his hoodie!! This is the first he has ever owned and is plans on purchasing more!!!

| mary s. 07-12-2021 18:06

Ordered the same number as my last jacket And my jacket is many years old and this one is not as heavy or insulated as my old one. Also my jacket has one sleeve an inch and a quarter longer than the other sleeve Not too happy

| Susan Z. 07-12-2021 15:13

Great products

| Douglas M. 07-12-2021 14:18

Best hoodie I've ever owned. Perfect mid weight cover. Cuts the wind and keeps me warm without overheating me when I'm indoors. Love Carhartt products and recommend them at every opportunity.

| Dianne H. 06-12-2021 21:45

If I can’t give five stars I don’t buy the product.

| Rachel G. 06-12-2021 20:21

High quality, comfortable, and cozy. My son is very pleased with this hoodie.

| James D. 06-12-2021 15:44

Utter rubbish. Zipper detached, splitting at the seams. The TSC brand cost less and is holding together better. Customer service is laughable. This company went downhill.

| jamell P. 06-12-2021 00:10

By far the warmest and best looking hoodie, I've ever worn in yrs. 5-Stars across the board.

| Susan H. 05-12-2021 18:13

Bought it for my Son for Christmas. Have gotten them before. He loves them!

| Steve 05-12-2021 18:12

I live in the Rainy Pacific Northwest and it works great in the rain.

| Ashley S. 05-12-2021 17:58

Great quality.

| Richard K. 04-12-2021 20:06

I would recommend this product to anyone..I purchased one for my wife also.

| robert c. 04-12-2021 19:16

Not what I wanted. Can't believe I ordered this. Decent product for cooler days.

| Larry R. 04-12-2021 18:27

I wear this to work everyday. It’s just right for those cool MS mornings.

| James S. 04-12-2021 18:20

Perfect.<br />Sized correctly, tough but soft.<br />Definitely my “go-to” hoodie.

| Lisa M. 04-12-2021 18:17

Love it! Warm and comfortable!

| Harry N. 04-12-2021 18:13

This raindefender heavyweight sweatshirt is awsome! It has plenty of room if you are working outside. Its also very warm, I had just a tshirt on undernearth and I was warm when the temps were in the 30's. The fit is also real good. I like my coats a little loose and this fits the bill.

| Ariel T. 04-12-2021 18:03

Quality is not good at all, after one wash the fabric looked as if it was washed 20 times.<br />It also runs bigger than they say on the sight

| Ralph P. 03-12-2021 18:29

Awesome hoodie. I would highly recommend to anyone who works outside in the cold.<br /><br />I would of given a five star rating if it was made in the United States instead of Guatemala.

| Ronnie Y. 02-12-2021 22:15

Works as it should. Carhartt quality that's why I bought it.

| John M. 02-12-2021 21:33

A good "in between" solution for when it's too cold for a vest but not cold enough for coat.

| Kathy S. 02-12-2021 18:20

The sweatshirt is great!

| Judith S. 02-12-2021 15:21

Such a great sweat shirt. Durable and soft.

| Cathy B. 01-12-2021 20:25

Nice quality sweatshirt that makes a very nice gift for most men.<br />Personally, I'm not particularly fond of the new style of pockets only because they are a bit harder getting into. On the flip side that makes it harder for things to fall out. So it is a personal choice. But it certainly does not keep me from buying more and more of them. Excellent gifts.

| LESLIE U. 01-12-2021 19:10

I really like all of my Carhartt items. My only issue with this sweatshirt is the zipper is very difficult to zip. It is comfortable and very warm. I have not worn it in rain yet

| Marion M. 01-12-2021 18:44

Good fit. Comfortable. Warm. Excellent quality. Highly recommend.

| Octavio G. 01-12-2021 18:39

This is the first time I purchase Carharrt clothing! I'm seriously impressed by it. It is an awesome sweatshirt! It's light and comfortable, yet it keeps you warm. I loved it so much that I purchased one for my wife and she loves it too!

| Ed C. 01-12-2021 14:48

This is a fantastic sweatshirt.

| Robert D. 01-12-2021 01:08

I like them a lot. They warn and comfortable. I have at else 5 of them.

| David F. 30-11-2021 20:23

Very warm, water proof it seems and comfortable....Hood is great too....

| GABRIEL M. 30-11-2021 20:15

i would recommend this product. however there are a few things that bother me a tiny bit but not a deal breaker. the shoulder/chest area seems to be very baggy and the hood on the sweater is a little small (or maybe my head is too big). other than that the quality is superb, very thick durable fabric and warm! i haven't taken it off since i got it.

| Kenneth E. 30-11-2021 18:27

It was just what I was looking for!

| Jeff 30-11-2021 12:50

Great sweatshirt. Warm, comfortable, and the water resistance is a great plus.

| Robert C. 29-11-2021 22:38

Very comfortable, nice and warm, water resistant—it’s great

| Rudy M. 29-11-2021 12:45

Great comfy jacket

| Barry M. 28-11-2021 16:57

High quality fabric, excellent tailoring and fit. Serves it purpose well as a warm jacket.

| Jessica J. 26-11-2021 11:34

This was a gift for my husband and he absolutely loves it. I have to grab it and wash it quickly because he never wants to take it off! Great in the rain and out and about!

| Dennis N. 25-11-2021 19:16

Great sweatshirt, will he purchasing more in the future.

| Janis B. 25-11-2021 18:25

Completely recommend. I bought this for my husband who works outside. He was dry after a downpour.

| Paul S. 25-11-2021 18:24

Fits great and very comfortable jacket

| chris t. 24-11-2021 21:33

Nice sweat shirt.

| Eric D. 24-11-2021 18:13

High quality as expected

| John O. 23-11-2021 22:04

Nice sweatshirt, not as warm or heavy as the old one

| Clarence J. 23-11-2021 19:43

I've always liked Carhartt coats and hooded sweatshirts. I was looking for a hooded sweatshirt when I thought why not Carhartt. I will be purchasing another item in the coming weeks.

| Steve N. 22-11-2021 23:56

Awesome jacket that repels water all day, it's an awesome zip up Hoodie, wish I'd had these at my job, when I was working full time, plus it's as warm as my insulated Carhartt hoodie,if not warmer

| CAM E. 21-11-2021 19:36

Good quality great service. Would recommend. ******* <br /> *** would like to order <br />4XL tall, but unavailable. Hope you will be able to get that size in soon.

| Nathan R. 20-11-2021 17:49

Warm very very warm

| Peter Clay D. 20-11-2021 00:48

Great quality, very comfortable, keeps me protected

| Rodolfo E. 19-11-2021 00:34

Amazing sweatshirt. This is my first time wearing Carhartt. Best sweatshirt I have ever owned.

| Greg M. 18-11-2021 22:32

Fits great, it’s long enough, well made. Everything I need in a full-zip hoodie.

| Patrick R. 17-11-2021 17:14

Nice comfortable feel runs big. The right hand pocket in pocket is annoying.

| William P. 16-11-2021 18:41

Great hoodie, love the fact that it is water proof.

| Chris S. 16-11-2021 18:31

Love this jacket warm comfortable just right for working on the farm not bulky repelled light rain as it said it would held up good so far through grain season and fixing fence price was great to I recommend this for any one who works out side doing hard work who doesn’t want a big bulky jacket

| Benjamin S. 14-11-2021 23:23

Great product. Very comfortable

| william n. 12-11-2021 17:57

Great hoodies I have used these for the last 7 years. I’m outside all winter in heavy construction.

| Jules 11-11-2021 05:51

Very comfortable and warm. Good looks.

| jeff r. 10-11-2021 20:18

I wish it was warmer and more of a cotton heavy weight sweatshirt feel.

| Andrew W. 10-11-2021 18:18

Yes, I can say I got what I paid for. I purchased the Black Heavyweight Defender and I am honestly glad I chose this brand. <br />I did check many brands and reviews. Also materials the hoodie was made of. This is very well made, warm and fits very well,and looks good. I can wear it under my coat and it's not bulky. I definitely would recommend this Rain Defender.????

| Scott P. 10-11-2021 12:19

I like the availability of the tall sizes. I just bought a Carhartt regular 2xl rain defender sweatshirt at a local store that does not fit as well as the tall xl. Good quality and materials.

| Joey T. 09-11-2021 08:05

It will keep you warm even when it is below 20 degrees. Perfect thickness to the fabric. The wind has a tough time trying to blow through the thick fabric.

| Jerome N. 08-11-2021 22:10


| Mike 07-11-2021 21:33

It was a gift and is being put to good use. Greatly appreciated.

| Kyla S. 07-11-2021 18:17

Head should be a little bigger.

| Chad A. 05-11-2021 17:06

Quality and consistency is gone. I purchased two in the same order and they are different from on another in quality and design. One has significantly smaller pockets. The weight of the fabric is different and thinner than my old one. Disappointed.

| Scott C. 02-11-2021 17:12

One of the best purchases I’ve made in awhile

| David M. 30-10-2021 17:38

Outstanding fit and functionality. Only problem I have is it could really use an inside breast pocket or two. Outside pockets have a tendency to have things fall out of them

| Jennifer I. 30-10-2021 16:53

My technicians miss the inside zippered pocket.

| DAVID B. 29-10-2021 16:59

Fantastic weight and fit

| steven f. 27-10-2021 17:03

Exactly what I wanted

| Shawn M. 26-10-2021 18:28


| First Name Matthew L. 26-10-2021 12:25

Love it! Great quality and comfort

| Laurence G. 23-10-2021 00:22

Zipper was a bit stiff but some good old WD-40 did the trick. I found the hidden pocket in the hand warmer pocket not useful for me. I rather have an inside pocket. Good construction, plenty of warmth. I haven't rain tested it yet. Over all a good buy

| Donald P. 08-10-2021 14:49

Since receiving this jacket as a gift i dont even wear a coat anymore, even when i ride in 40 deg weather. the rain defender feature is also amazing. going to be ordering a second one so that i have one that stays nicer then my everyday wear one.

| David D. 06-10-2021 17:18

Generous fit, sheds water and wind, great value.

| Chris 16-09-2021 17:01

I have this hoodie in the Carbon Heather color and it's very comfortable and fits well. Love the hand warmer pockets. I tried this hoodie on at a store and fell in love with it. It was perfect. Just what I wanted so I ordered one and saved like $20.00. If you're looking for something that will keep you warm on cold days and keep you dry then you need to buy one of these. They are of exceptional quality and they look great. There is no substitute for the real thing so don't buy another brand to try to save money. I have tried other brands and they don't stack up to Carhartt. Spend the money and be happy. This is an American company that has been around since the 1800's. They know what people need and they know how to make a long lasting quality products. $59-$69.00 is not a lot for a hoodie that will likely last you 4-5 years or longer with proper care.

| James A S. 11-09-2021 11:31

I bought the exact same item, save for different color, last year. I bought another one the other day. Money well spent! These "Heavyweight Full-Zip Sweatshirt"s are more like a coat. Very warm, very comfy, great in the rain. I just wish they came in more colors.

| Melissa H. 20-06-2021 10:58

Great value for the money..

| Julienne R. 18-06-2021 05:57

I ordered this gift early for my son for his birthday in August. I do not have an actual review, but know the product will fit. He loves your Brand. He does construction, lives in Sac Ca, HOT right now, but COLD nights.

| Ritchie C. 18-06-2021 02:09

Fantastic quality as aways, it's just not black. It's a very faded "black" out of the packaging, so this hoodie will turn charcoal gray in probably 2 washes.

| Nancy M. 11-06-2021 17:38

Heavy duty but comfortable. Good quality!

| busicol 11-06-2021 01:51

not the same quality. I bougt this model 5 years ago and it was trully heavy weight. Not this one. Really disappointed!

| Patricia Y. 06-06-2021 07:34

Just as great as the one my husband bought 10 years ago! My husband is pleased with his new hooded sweatshirt and put his old one to heavy use in the garage and wood shop. He still uses his old one for messy jobs and wears the new one out and about and to work. Overall durable sweatshirt!

| Jason R. 30-05-2021 02:36

Great sweat shirt just wish the hood was a little bit bigger

| David F. 21-05-2021 17:23

Rain beads up on it like a car that has just been freshly waxed! Love it, keeps me dry and warm both!

| ROBERT B. 17-05-2021 17:20

Best hoody I've ever owned

| Robert w. 16-05-2021 19:58

Love it. Comfortable. Had to buy one size smaller.

| mark s. 16-05-2021 02:21

great product

| Nick H. 15-05-2021 18:50

I wore thin Hoosier for years and just complained about how thin and cheap feeling they were. <br /><br />Then I found Carhartts hoodie and I love it. It s thick, warm, soft and feels like it will last. It even has a small pocket in the big pocket.

| T H. 15-05-2021 15:01

What a great sweatshirt! Just thick enough, tough, durable, longer than most, great for cool to warm weather. <br />Have to buy 4 more! LOL!<br />I discovered the quilted model is best for colder weather, 50*F. <br />Both are excellent!

| Steve B. 11-05-2021 17:41

Excellent product !!

| Jose O. 09-05-2021 19:44

I didn't realize that this was apart of the Rain Defender series and got caught in some bad rain. I was completely dry and warm. Highly Recco. Great Product.

| TheodoraM B. 29-04-2021 19:28

I was very disappointed in this Heavyweight hoodie. It was not as heavy as my husbands old one we bought a year ago. I had to send it back.

| Ashley K. 22-04-2021 19:37

The zipper is high quality and the material is thick, but not bulky.

| Linda T. 16-04-2021 17:01

Purchased for my son to replace a similar hoodie that finally "died".<br />He loves the new hoodie.

| Adrian 14-04-2021 22:30

Get jacket

| Damon N. 09-04-2021 21:46

Great fitting good and gear and protection to the rain.

| Phyllis Y. 09-04-2021 17:06

I purchased for my 3 sons and they love them. Not too heavy and easy to wear.

| ROBERTA R. 06-04-2021 22:35

This is the second one of these we have purchased. The first one is getting beat, (after 6 yrs!) so this is a replacement. Love the navy color and the rain repellency is a big plus. Washes great, and is sized to fit as described.

| Josh L. 06-04-2021 19:41

Runs big, almost a size too big.

| Vann F. 06-04-2021 18:13

This is a quality product. But the fit was too boxy for me.

| Robert M. 05-04-2021 17:39

Second one. Should have an inside jacket pocket just like my first one. First 5 inches of main zipper stiff and awkward to close.<br />Emblem on left sleeve unnecessary and too showie.<br /><br />Additional pocket inside right pocket good idea. <br /><br />Somewhat disappointed. At best neutral on product.

| Scott T. 04-04-2021 21:46

This is a replacement for a sweatshirt I bought 6 years ago that I wore at work almost every day. I work outside everyday rain or shine and this sweatshirt has held up to the abuse. I will continue to buy these everytime.

| Melanie M. 04-04-2021 08:45

Fits perfectly

| Diana P. 03-04-2021 16:53

My husband loves it. Keeps him warm and dry.

| michael h. 03-04-2021 16:49

Carhartt has always been the best . The rain defender just added to the quality.

| Charlie C. 02-04-2021 17:37

Bought one from Carhartt before Christmas and loved it ... so I bought a new one from Amazon (turns out it must have been a fake -- flimsy material, missing secret pocket, etc) So I sent that one back and purchased again from Carhartt -- excellent results just like the first time.

| Carl L. 02-04-2021 17:02

Probably the thickest and most substancial hoodie I have ever seen in my life. It weighs a ton and is perfect for winter layering and chilly spring/fall mornings and light showers. Brass YKK zipper will work a long time and not rust, metal eyelets for drawstrings. 3, yes 3 piece hood instead of the standard 2 which keeps your head warm. The DWR coating works way better than I thought. Water beads off easily, it will only soak through if it is heavy rain for over 30 mins. Im very impressed, the 75/25 cotton-poly blend is a good balance of warmth, strength and breathability. 13oz is perfect for me, it can be used as a jacket that’s how thick it is. My favorite hoodie, ever, hands down. Will buy another color in the future. Thank you carhartt.

| James M. 26-03-2021 18:46

Thank's vary much you have a good product keep up the good work. God bless....

| Jeffrey F. 25-03-2021 19:25

It’s the best hoodie I’ve ever had. I highly recommend it to anyone shopping for one.<br /><br />Although I said it runs large I’d order the same size again. It allows plenty of room for anything you might wear underneath and allows for freedom of movement.

| Chris W. 25-03-2021 17:06

I'm digging the sweatshirt so far. Used it in light rain loading into a job, and it kept me dry. Plenty of room to move, even with a couple shirts on underneath. Seems sturdy.

| Gary 24-03-2021 16:07

Great all around sweatshirt

| Monica K. 23-03-2021 17:52

Love the rain defender hoodie however this one is very small. Bought my husband a medium before and it felt perfectly, this medium is very small. It barely fits me

| Kristopher K. 20-03-2021 12:27

Very durable hoody. I thought about moving to Canada just so I could wear it more often. It just doesn't get very cold in Alabama. This hoody is so nice, it may be worth sweating just to be able to wear it.

| Jennifer C. 19-03-2021 18:19

It’s comfortable but it’s already ruffling up after 2 weeks

| George G. 15-03-2021 18:23

Just what I was looking for.

| Brandon G. 14-03-2021 16:54

Sweatshirt fits nice but also runs a bit bigger than I thought it would

| Trent R. 13-03-2021 00:41

Best zip hoodie I've ever bought

| Steven J. 10-03-2021 17:47

Long Lasting. Replacing one that lasted too many years (according to my wife). LOL

| MICHEAL L. 09-03-2021 22:00

I work at a Contruction site. this sweatshirt is great for this type of environment. The second sweatshirt went to the homeless person that hangs out on the corner.<br />Wish Carhartt would let me purchase more of these for a discounted price.

| Russell H. 08-03-2021 20:49

Comfortable, warm, and allows you to stay flexible. Very very nice jacket

| Jann W. 08-03-2021 11:10

This Rain Defender Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip-Front Sweatshirt was a birthday present for my husband and he loves it. Its very comfortable to wear, quality of material and zipper is excellent.

| Billy 07-03-2021 02:44

Unlike all my Carhartt hoodies the sleeves on the zip up hoodie seems to be shorter. A couple more inches longer would have been perfect. I do however like the quality of the material and the workmanship seems to be the excellent quality I’ve come to expect from Carhartt.

| E.A. M. 06-03-2021 20:42

I love this hooded sweatshirt. It is so warm and dry I wore it almost every day this winter. It even was better at keeping the wind out.

| juan p. 06-03-2021 09:09

This zipper sweatshirt is just great. The moment you put it on it feels warm, looks great and you can’t beat the quality. I’m glad I made this purchase.

| BRETT B. 05-03-2021 21:50

Great heavyweight sweatshirt. Keeps me warm and is very comfortable. I originally purchased Large tall as I am 6'4" but it was too big. The large fits great.

| Rick 05-03-2021 18:53

I work the graveyard shift, I wanted a hoodie because it gets pretty cold about 5 am. I searched various websites until I came across Carhartt. I liked the the RDP hoodie until I received it I open the package and took a look at the hoodie tried it on and I loved after trying it on. Its very well made hoodie, the heavyweight material is of excellent quality. Should last a very long time I'm definitely purchasing the pullover hoodie. Thanks Carhartt I'm a lifetime customer!

| David T. 05-03-2021 17:59

Excellent I love it

| ADERITO B. 03-03-2021 21:47


| Luke L. 02-03-2021 18:52

This thing actually does well in light rain. Great when you get caught in a downpour. The sleeves are nice and long for a tall guy! The pocket section is a little more baggy than the normal hoodies but not bad.

| Marc G. 01-03-2021 14:55

Awesome jacket for the price. Feels high quality and warm. I usually wear an XL but decided to go with a large and I’m glad I did. I’m 5’11” 220lbs, stocky build and it fits perfect. I feel like an XL would have been looser than I would have liked. Overall, a great value and what you would expect from Carhartt.

| Chris R. 01-03-2021 11:19

this is a great piece very comfortable.

| CFH 28-02-2021 03:09

The sweatshirt is well made from a good thick, but not bulky, quality fabric. It is well constructed and the fit is true to size. I would definitely purchase again.

| Matthew C. 27-02-2021 21:36

Good fitting <br />Very comfortable <br />Breathable material

| NANCY H. 27-02-2021 12:56

I am a female and bought a size small because Carhart does not make a sweatshirt this heavy for women. I usually buy a women's small or medium and this sweatshirt feels oversized. I like that the sleeves are long and the sweatshirt falls below my butt and keeps me warm. I would recommend this to women seeking function over style.

| Jon K. 26-02-2021 20:05

Great product

| grease m. 23-02-2021 21:11

great jacket, perfect fit.

| Gerald Z. 22-02-2021 23:08

The zipper doesn’t work.

| George S. 22-02-2021 15:13

love it warm and stylish

| Suzanne H. 21-02-2021 17:49

Works great in rain an not too thick but keeps you warm

| MARY G. 20-02-2021 20:30

Great jacket

| Leroy S. 20-02-2021 17:46

Very warm, Very comfortable. Dont even need a coat.

| Reymundo V. 19-02-2021 21:48

I'm enjoying wearing my hoodie. Very comfortable and fits great .

| Thaddeus F. 17-02-2021 18:09

So far this hoodie demonstrates the quality I expect from Carhartt. I have not really tested out the Rain Defender aspect too much, but I am not delusional in my expectations. The hand warmer pockets are both nice and large, but I did find the smaller internal pocket to actually get in my way when I placed a tool or keys in there for quick access. <br /><br />A note on the color. I got Peat. I have seen Peat range from an off-brown to dark gray to a mossy green. On the website, this color appears more gray to me. In person it appears mostly on the mossy green side, although in some lighting it looks dark gray as well. I don't mind it. I actually like the mossy green look. But just beware of that if you're considering the Peat color.

| Rebecca R. 17-02-2021 03:30

10/10 definitely recommend true to size very comfortable and warm

| Rachel R. 16-02-2021 19:29

Love it . Have the pullover version also - I use both of them.

| Cristina S. 16-02-2021 03:39

My company gave me one of these with our logo on it for Christmas. It’s great.

| Michael L. 15-02-2021 19:04

Love them! Getting a couple more!

| Curt S. 15-02-2021 18:11

Good quality, heavy duty sweat shirt. Bought to replace one I’ve had for 15 years. Feels comfortable. Not a big fan of the pocket in a packet, just seems to be in the way to me. Wish it came in camo

| Allan B. 15-02-2021 18:09

This product is durable, with good quality, and excellent functionality!

| Arthur M. 15-02-2021 10:34

I enjoyed it so much I bought a second one from Costco. I spend a great deal of time outside and it does well at being water proof and being warm without being too heavy.

| John g. 14-02-2021 17:37

2 months old and the zipper fell apart

| Tamera C. 13-02-2021 20:07

Very durable, yet comfortable.

| louis c. 13-02-2021 03:35

works great love this hoody wish i would have gotten more. i work indoor and outdoors and this hoody is enough to keep me warm

| Jody H. 12-02-2021 19:59

Not as good as other products. Washed it twice before wearing leaves fuzzballs all over my shirts. Would not recommend

| Susan M. 12-02-2021 17:59


| Michael F. 12-02-2021 17:48

Received one before, loved it, as it was starting to wear out around the cuffs and such it was time to up grade to a newer one. Does well with light rains, thick enough for cold winds. I will continue to buy new ones as they wear out. The best thing about it is it comes in TALL sizing.

| Robert A. 12-02-2021 16:37

This sweatshirt was billed as the replacement for the older style J149 hoodie, In the specs it says it is heavier weight, now way, its much lighter, not near as warm and no inner pockets, it ids definitely a down grade from thr previous style.

| Kevin B. 09-02-2021 22:34

These are the best all around sweatshirts available, this is my second one in six years.

| Samuel 08-02-2021 21:27

This hoodie is so great its light enough to wear all the time but keeps you warm. I definitely recommend this jacket.

| Tim 07-02-2021 20:22

Satisfied with this item

| Dana F. 07-02-2021 20:06

Perfect to wear in the cold at the animal rescue. Keeps me very warm and dry

| Jane C. 07-02-2021 18:56

Nice fabric and fit. Seems like it will be really warm.

| michelle g. 05-02-2021 17:38

My husband loves this jacket. It is extremely warm and stays dry. I highly recommend it to anyone.

| JOHN M. 04-02-2021 18:57

This Paxton isn't warm enough, so I've reordered Sherpas. The Paxton is also cut too full, so the Sherpas were ordered as smalls, medium being my size for everything else, including lots of Carhartt tees.<br />How much production cost was saved by not having a hanging loop?

| Kerah K. 02-02-2021 19:18

Bought this for my boyfriend and he loves it!! Great quality, keeps him warm ! Highly recommended this zip up .<br /><br />Does run big would reccomend sizing down by 1 size from original sizing you'd usually get.

| Christopher 02-02-2021 17:53

Warm and comfy fitting sweatshirt. Time will determine if holds up like last Carhart sweatshirt that was over 10 years old when finally was retired.

| GlendaL M. 01-02-2021 18:22

Great I love how they look on my husband

| Brian G. 01-02-2021 18:14

Good so far. Seems quite large. I’m 6’6” and 295. The largest my local store had was a 2x and it was snug and short. Ordered a 3x tall and it is huge!! Wish I could find an in between but it’ll work. The rain defender coating works well. I live where it rains about 85” a year. Also I’ve machine washed it 3 times so far with no effect on the water repellent so that’s a plus too.

| BB 30-01-2021 14:24

Warm, durable and very comfortable. Regular fit. Great for layering.

| Matt C. 30-01-2021 04:25

Awesome hoodie. Very warm. This winter I have yet to touch my Carhartt duck jacket even with the temps into the single didgets. It cuts the wind. Good protection from rain. The hood is bigger so you can put it over your hard hat. Nothing but good things about this hoodie.

| judith c. 29-01-2021 17:58

keeps you warm and is water proof. my 18, 19 and 51 year olds love it.

| Adam S. 29-01-2021 17:47

Great quality as always

| Brian E. 29-01-2021 02:59

I ordered this online mistaking it for another style with smooth lining and inside pockets. I love the smooth one and wanted another color. This one is nice but lacks the refinement and ease of slipping over fleece tops. Still a practical hoodie.

| Lawrence C. 28-01-2021 17:58

Thought it would be heavier

| Richard V. 28-01-2021 17:09

This hoodie is a replacement for the one I got about 6 years ago. I loved my old one but it was just worn out. I’ve had this hoodie for about a month and I like it a lot. It’s very warm and I really like that it’s water repellent.

| Oscar C. 27-01-2021 23:46

Favorite hoodie. Great for cold and or rainy weather.

| Glenn H. 26-01-2021 19:26

It wasn’t the one I really wanted it wasn’t the heavy weight with the thermal like material

| Aaron G. 26-01-2021 05:47

Love my Carhartt! It fits perfect and keeps me dry. Love the product but would have loved additional pockets on the inside, but 2 large front pockets can hold anything with ease. It’s Carhartt season boys. Carhartts are on.

| SUNNY J. 25-01-2021 22:06

This sweatshirt is my husband's favorite. The one he just received is for wearing out in public as the old one he worked in - got paint and grease and I wouldn't let him wear it outside the yard!! HA

| Dakota F. 23-01-2021 22:47

Good fit. Durable. Comfortable.

| Mary Ann B. 23-01-2021 18:14

Just bought 2 to replace the 2 my husband has had for years - they're great and long lasting. The only problem is that one of the sweatshirts has a "sticky" zipper - it's hard to zip even after more than a week of wear - the other sweatshirt zipper glides smooth as butter!

| David V. 22-01-2021 23:14

Good weight. Able to stay warm and dry in low temps. True to size.

| Abe M. 21-01-2021 22:50

Comfortable! Rain beads up and does not soak into the hoodie. Deducted a star for the hood being too small

| John C. 21-01-2021 20:10

It arrived much too big for me so I gave it to my son who absolutely loves it. I ordered the full zip no hood version and although it’s still a little bigger than I’d like I washed it and am wearing it at work now. Thank you

| Lodi P. 21-01-2021 17:58

I purchased this as a gift for my husband as he works outside all the time. He loves it!

| Michael F. 21-01-2021 11:08

This is my third jacket they usually last ten years can’t beat that

| Brendan M. 20-01-2021 21:17

I like this jacket. It’s comfortable, and it sheds water very well, as it should. But the only downside is that it’s a little too large on me. Perhaps it was my own fault for ordering the size that I did, but that’s my only gripe.

| frank s. 20-01-2021 18:17

love it the last one i had zipper fell off still got it

| CRAIG E. 20-01-2021 14:22

This was a Christmas present for someone that lives in hoodies. I decided he should have something suitable for rainy days and the Rain Defender was a perfect gift that he tells me he really likes.

| Melissa S. 19-01-2021 18:49

I gave this as a gift, my husband wears it almost everyday!!

| John 19-01-2021 02:41

Great hoodie for daily wear. The rain defender series really impressed me. Not to heavy.

| George M. 18-01-2021 19:33

Very comfy and works great!

| Dzemil P. 16-01-2021 01:07

Stains on the inside that won’t wash off

| Kellie C. 14-01-2021 19:26

I bought this for my 22 year old son, who is extremely hard on outerwear. Carhartt is one of the few products that can hold up to him!

| Gregory T. 14-01-2021 03:56

It's the perfect weight for warmer weather 20° - 30°. It's very comfortable and it fits very well.

| Albert B. 12-01-2021 18:08

Fits good.

| Susan A. 11-01-2021 21:08

I love this sweatshirt! This is my second one.

| Rita H. 10-01-2021 18:18

My husband loves his hooded sweatshirt jacket, he said it's very warm and keeps him dry.

| Richard R. 07-01-2021 18:37

Comfortable, warm,and waterproof for an exceptional price. What more can you ask for.

| Thomas F. 05-01-2021 23:55

Love this hoodie.. been wearing carhartt since a teen am in my 40s now.. this hoodie is perfect.. warm fresh navy blue and room to move

| Bridgette W. 05-01-2021 17:11

Great and strong

| Sabrina C. 04-01-2021 18:54

Bought one for my husband and I love it so much Im getting one for myself.

| JAMES W. 04-01-2021 03:51

Great jacket not only repels water but also acts like a windbreaker. My new favorite go to jacket.

| Kelly C. 03-01-2021 17:55

Husband has worn it practically every day since Christmas.

| Pappy 03-01-2021 06:35

I really like the fit and feel of the sweatshirt.

| Steve 02-01-2021 23:59

The day after this arrived we had a big snowstorm borrowed by heavy rain. I was outdoors for over 4 hours and when I came In I was amazed to discover it was perfectly dry! Now I know why my son loves his.

| Roxanne N. 02-01-2021 18:10

My son loved it!

| Chris L. 01-01-2021 18:05

Im fat and tall , this fit me and keeps me dry.

| Cindy C. 31-12-2020 18:06

Really nice jacket. Great weight, water resistant and the color is much nicer in person than online.

| Matthew W. 30-12-2020 02:07

Great sweatshirts. I wear them to hunt in, work in, and just everyday wear. <br />Just like all original fit items they run just a touch on the big size. <br />I normally wear an XL but in carhartt products that are original fit I wear a Large.

| Nathan P. 29-12-2020 19:13

This sweatshirt is great warm, holds off light to medium rain and snow. And extra little inside right pocket is great for vehicle key fob.

| Dawn R. 27-12-2020 11:11

The sweatshirt is very thin and doesn't seem to have the rain defender like the pullover hoodie..I'm a little disappointed

| Victoria S. 25-12-2020 20:27

Looks great. true to size . great quality material. Waterproofing is great! I will be buying more of these

| Linda V. 25-12-2020 18:49


| Sarah S. 22-12-2020 15:42

Love it!! Im glad I went with it

| Loren H. 21-12-2020 21:45

Love it am Carhartt fan <br />Keep up the great products

| Marty I. 15-12-2020 16:29

Love it, I work outside all year round as a carpenter or a waterman. It provides protection from the elements yet allows movement with no hindrance. I definitely recommend!

| Dianne K. 15-12-2020 03:43

It’s a gift for Xmas but looks great.

| Joe S. 12-12-2020 18:57

I love these. I bought one a few years ago and it’s still in fine shape but I really like to way they feel brand new so I picked up three more so I can rotate them and keep them even longer. In the winter this is all I wear along with a thinsulate long sleeve t.

| Douggie 10-12-2020 23:06

This is my go to hoodie when I want to blend warmth with a casual style. It is a heavy material and unlined so you can wear a t-shirt under it on a cool day or layer it with a coat on chillier days. The rain/wind resistant fabric and hoodie are great and particularly appreciated on windy days.

| Shawn P. 10-12-2020 19:17

I have three of these sweatshirts. Two of them I swap out for work, one in the wash and one to wear. The other lives in my shop for changing weather. My daughter was home and took to it like a cat in a sun spot. So she's getting her own for Christmas.

| Patrick K. 10-12-2020 17:53

This was purchased for our company. All employees are so grateful of the quality. The Jackets fit perfectly, they are easy to move in, especially the length.

| Christopher S. 10-12-2020 00:06

Awesome sweatshirt!!! Runs big though, I sized down to a medium and still kinda loose.. I wear large 99.9% of the time in others brands.. This is going to last me a long time. Super thick and comfortable !! Thanks Carhartt!!

| John S. 09-12-2020 13:22

Good and thick heavyweight material Still fits underneath Carhart vest comfortably I would highly recommend

| William W. 06-12-2020 17:50

Very warm, very water proof. Would buy again. Soft inside.

| July G. 05-12-2020 20:17

Bought this for the hubby in black for his birthday.<br />He loved ot so much he got it in 2 more colors.

| eddie r. 04-12-2020 18:02

Bought a small for my daughter and it’s a Lil big but expected

| Casey Y. 02-12-2020 19:15

Bought for my husband and he likes it. Says it is very warm.

| Michael G. 30-11-2020 18:48

Awesome product.

| Diego A. 30-11-2020 02:50

The sweatshirt is thick and warm. But runs loss in the mid-section but still accurate in size.

| Alan A. 27-11-2020 10:47

It’s nice to have a sweatshirt that doesn’t soak up the rain.

| Brandon W. 26-11-2020 17:48

I absolutely love this sweatshirt. Very comfortable and water resistant. The interior lining is no longer mesh and no a much more comfortable soft material. They also eliminated an interior pocket and added a phone sleeve in one of the front pockets. Perhaps best of all was the zipper upgrade. I had two zipper failures on the last version.

| Colton J. 25-11-2020 19:30

Very comfortable and warm. Seems like it will wear very well and last. Rated a good buy!

| Eric B. 25-11-2020 18:00

Nicely made and comfortable.

| Michael L. 24-11-2020 19:21

Great jacket, thats why all my work clothes are Carhartt.

| Barbara P. 24-11-2020 18:31

Purchased it for my husband. Nice heavy weight and loves that it's a rain defender. Best Birthday present ever.

| BRADY M. 23-11-2020 23:29

6' 2" 185lbs I got the Large. Fits great. Love the thickness of it and soft inside. Navy color looks great. This is my second one. I still wear my old one but cuffs are frayed, that's all. Have had it for over four years. Durable sweatshirt. Warm.

| Dan M. 22-11-2020 18:20

You guys added to many pockets. The little pocket in the large right pocket sucks. I can’t get a hand or my keys or anything in it with out it getting caught in the little pocket. Im going to rip it out. You should stop making it with that one.

| Lenore L. 20-11-2020 20:31

Very comfortable and waterproof. Fits well.

| Gto2000 18-11-2020 02:50

Great product fits great unlike any other hooded sweatshirt

| Sean L. 17-11-2020 23:56

Very satisfied

| Keith F. 17-11-2020 02:08

Very Nice zip up jacket.

| Josh T. 16-11-2020 21:47

Great product. Delivers.

| David F. 16-11-2020 11:43

Third time ordering these sweatshirts. The crew and I love wearing them. I would highly recommend this product.

| Danielle C. 15-11-2020 15:16

Made very well. Definitely a good asset for an outside worker.

| Robert B. 14-11-2020 18:52

Fits as expected, resists rain and seems to be well made.

| Cristian F. 13-11-2020 18:57

I wish it had an inside pocket other than that it is a great sweatshirt.

| P L. 13-11-2020 18:01

Love it, a sweater that actually fits (big and tall)

| madeleine m. 13-11-2020 03:29

Can't beat Carhartt products. Wear well, look nice. Have bought them for many years.

| Dan S. 11-11-2020 22:10

Good fit and right weight for cold winter morning's in northern Minnesota.

| Patty D. 10-11-2020 19:39

My husband is 6'2 with long arms and was thrilled to have a jacket that went the full lenght of his arms. Loves that it is not bulky and he can drive with ease.

| John W. 10-11-2020 10:38

Very good quality and comfort for all types of jobs

| William P. 08-11-2020 19:51

Quite functional for my outdoor lifestyle. Easier to use than the regular hooded sweatshirt Rain Defender. Warm.

| Frank B. 07-11-2020 17:42

Would. recommend. Warm holds up well against rain.

| Erik B. 04-11-2020 18:30

Very warm and comfortable. The only gear I wear to work is carhartt. It is superior to all other working clothes.

| Marcia G. 03-11-2020 20:47

My husband bought one at Fleet Farm. I wanted one just like it so I searched your site for the item # on the tag in his. The product that arrived didn't have the same lining material. His is fluffy, I would call it "sherpa". the one I bought from you had a flat lining material. I was so disappointed. I was looking forward to wearing the sweatshirt and had my heart set on that warm fluffy snuggly lining. So back it went. How can you make something so different and assign it the same item number?

| William B. 03-11-2020 17:56

I like the carhartt products

| Mary A. 03-11-2020 16:35

Really like. Hope to purchase one for myself. Bought as a Christmas present. Looks well made.

| Mike F. 02-11-2020 11:08

very happy with the sweatshirt. Third one i have brought.

| marcin k. 01-11-2020 18:03

The best hoodie !!

| Kenneth F. 28-10-2020 18:47

I bought this hoodie at my local TSC. The price was fair. Its been raining the past few days. I have been out in it for hours and my shirt has remained dry under this sweatshirt. The Rain Defender has proved a great value.

| Carol C. 28-10-2020 16:49

Got this for my Brother. He lays ceramic tile and sometimes there is no heat in the building yet. He says this sweatshirt works perfect with layers to keep him warm and allow him to move easily!

| Jessica M. 26-10-2020 16:29

This hooded zipper is a great coverage for all seasons. My Husband wears this almost year round including the WI winters and this keeps him pretty warm. He's had the same hooded zipper for almost 3 years and is just now showing signs of wear and a few small holes.

| Todd H. 25-10-2020 19:08

Great product. Been buying carhartts products for over 10 years

| Robert S. 23-10-2020 23:31

Fits perfectly. Keeps me warm and dry.

| Jon 23-10-2020 21:29

Another great Carhartt product. Fits great, feels great, looks great, wears great!

| ksmith024 23-10-2020 16:47

Boyfriend loves it! Living in upstate NY it’s often cold and rainy/snowing. This is the perfect in between of a raincoat and winter jacket.

| Richard A. 21-10-2020 16:53

This is my SECOND one purchased. It is so warm and comfortable and works on drizzly days that my Girlfriend stole my 1st one! Highly recommended! (PSA: Just don't EVER let your girl wear it when it's cold and drizzling out, you WILL lose it!)

| Gary E. 19-10-2020 17:44

I love this sweatshirt, warm and comfortable.

| BRANDI 18-10-2020 02:29

Amazing jacket

| Harold T. 14-10-2020 17:27

I really enjoy this heavyweight sweatshirt. It’s true to size, and I wear it as warm as a lightweight jacket. I also appreciate that the fabric is “Quiet” when moving around, compared to other lightweight jacket materials. I do wish there was a version without the hood, but that’s me.

| Greg B. 13-10-2020 17:02

It's great

| Robert N. 13-10-2020 16:59

Great hoodie own several

| Maureen W. 11-10-2020 17:57

My husband LOVES this hoodie. It's handsome, heavy enough to provide what he needs for warmth, and extremely well made. Home run!

| Jason J. 10-10-2020 17:34

Absolutely perfect but runs big im normally XL had to go wit Large . I'm 6ft 189 lbs athletic

| Michael D. 10-10-2020 17:01

It’s okay bigger than expected

| Chris M. 08-10-2020 21:16

Quick delivery and great product! Love it!

| Candi V. 07-10-2020 16:56

Husband loves this zip up. Warm, waterproof and ready for the outdoors. Great product @Carhartt

| Rodolfo M. 05-10-2020 17:46

Nice the best

| KIBIDER C. 02-10-2020 17:20

The Carhartt Rain Defender jacket is outstanding. Keeps me warm without weighing me down. It's very well crafted and holds up to any weather I have thrown at it.<br />Roomy pockets have plenty of room for my tools (I don't always wear my toolbelt!)and my hands stay toasty warm in cold weather.<br /><br />I recommend it wholeheartedly!

| Daniel C. 01-10-2020 19:51

Amazing sweater! Quality is great and it fits true to the size! being tall is hard sometimes to get a nice fit but this was an amazing feel and fit

| danny b. 29-09-2020 17:23

return for credit way two large

| Vanessa P. 28-09-2020 17:01

My husband loves his new Carhartt sweater

| Von H. 26-09-2020 17:54

Great medium weight jacket. That fits well and looks good.

| Darlene R. 23-09-2020 22:12

2nd one, very warm, durable and fit is perfect

| Steven H. 23-09-2020 19:04

I definitely will recommend this product. It’s the second hoodie like this I’ve owned. I like the full zip, weight, and rain resistance.

| Don R. 21-09-2020 20:04

Amazing quality and value. Bought it for construction work but I like it so much I wear it for everyday and am going to order another one for work!

| Corbett C. 10-09-2020 19:06

Been buying these for a while now

| Taki T. 22-08-2020 17:11

EXCELLENT!! Quality of fabric

| michael s. 13-08-2020 00:58

Never seen quality like this before. Provides much-needed protection. Thanks Carhartt

| Sandi W. 27-07-2020 13:55

Works and fits well. I like the extra flaps over the pockets to protect from stuff getting in. Also the smooth inside is great for layering because it doesn’t stick to your shirts.

| Howard L. 01-07-2020 16:49

Great hoodie but had to exchange for smaller size.

| Scott B. 29-06-2020 18:07


| Brian J. 19-06-2020 16:09

Jacket is as advertised. Wore it today in the rain, very waterproof. My buddy at work wants Mine. Very fine product.

| JOHN W. 16-06-2020 18:14

Not water resistant after three washes. Doesn't breath and you sweat like a pig in it. <br /><br />Looks nice though

| William N. 15-06-2020 18:15

I work 14 hour shifts at night and in the early hours, things frequently become slow and I open the door so I can hear the phones and radios, stand on the balcony and watch the world go by. Those hours of the morning get cool. Too warm for a coat and jackets don't have hoods. This hoodie has filled my needs wonderfully. It's light weight and warmth combined make it ideal for my purposes. I haven't warn it in the rain or had it long enough to comment on it's durability. Time will tell.<br />So far, I would highly recommend this for anyone that needs a light weight, comfortable jacket.

| Joshua H. 09-06-2020 16:52

Love it.. perfect for spring rainy days. Light but warm and keeps you dry.

| Kevin M. 07-06-2020 17:11

Love it! Would highly recommend it to friends and family!!

| JUAN P. 06-06-2020 12:35

I was impressed with the quality, and heavyduty weight of the sweatshirt. This can last a lifetime. I am a little disappointed though that the sweatshirt runs a little large. I am hoping after a few washes it will shrink a bit.

| Peter R. 06-06-2020 02:59

I just returned it through the mail. I should have listened to my gut when I felt like I shouldn't order the XL... I needed the Large. <br /><br />Looks great but I don't know about any functionality. I only tried it on.

| Daniel S. T. 04-06-2020 19:01

Awesome sweatshirt-we ordered the color peat, thinking it would be a brown(hard to tell in the pics), And when we got it it was green

| Jeffrey G. 26-05-2020 20:42

I have one that is 7 years old and is better then my new one<br />The new one does not have inside zipper pocket and it is not as warm as my old one<br />I have been a fan of Carhartt for years <br />This is the first time I have not liked a Carhartt item

| S n. 23-05-2020 17:21

Great jacket ,just wish it had an inside pocket like my old one

| victor k. 21-05-2020 18:18

Well built sweater, warm with a good heavy zipper

| John 19-05-2020 18:02

This is the second one I ordered.<br />Great fit-as always<br />Love Carhardtt-wearing it for years .<br />Never a problem.<br />Wears for years.

| Joe V. 18-05-2020 17:56

Sized a little big but I love it

| Armando P. 18-05-2020 17:25

Highly recommend, actually ordered a second jacket in different color.

| Briana P. 18-05-2020 13:26

My boyfriend loves this sweatshirt!!!

| Randall R. 17-05-2020 16:47

Disappointed that this sweatshirt is bigger than the one I bought years ago as it fit perfectly.

| Mike M. 16-05-2020 18:32

So, I’ve gone through them all. A lot of brands, a lot of sweatshirts. I may have just stumbled on the last one I’ll ever own. Surprisingly warm for the weight, the water repellant treatment (so far) is really outstanding, and it’s a perfect fit. Superb quality.

| Timothy G. 16-05-2020 00:56

I like it . Very comfortable. Fits well . I have only had it a couple of week . So far I would recommend this sweatshirt.

| Bob T. 15-05-2020 17:27

I really liked it very much. I had one like it for 30 years. I hope this one does a good job. It didn’t take long for them to fill my order. Thanks so much.

| Dave V. 12-05-2020 11:29

Material feels so different than my previous Paxton sweatshirt. First one I had felt soft and comfortable this one is stiff and feels thin and cheap.

| Jason M. 11-05-2020 16:33

AT 6'4" 250lbs, the XL tall is perfect in the sleeves but runs way to long in the body. I own 5 of the heavyweight hoodies and they are all the same way. These sweathsirts would be perfect if the would shorten up the length a bit.

| RYAN V. 07-05-2020 20:27

...second purchase...liked first one, so much...got second one...for when the one is dirty...comfort and wear of this item, plus one...warmth during chilled wet work times again plus one...like much i do...

| Bernie J. 05-05-2020 22:17

Repelled some light rain well. Very warm.

| Troy R. 05-05-2020 18:28

Perfect weight and size

| Penny 05-05-2020 15:18

My sweatshirt is so comfy and it is so awesome in the rain

| Rob H. 01-05-2020 16:54

I love the carhartt sweatshirts!!

| Jose G. 29-04-2020 05:26

Comfortable and heavy. I would recommend it to anyone.

| Jamie S. 26-04-2020 17:41

True to size fit. Great product

| RONALD J. 25-04-2020 21:23

Good quality, what you would expect from Carhartt. <br /><br />Fit is huge. Large tall fits like an XXL. I don't understand Carhartt's tall sizing and why it's so big. It's like this in all their clothing. Pretty much done buying from them. Which sucks because their clothing is quality. Just sized all wrong.

| Frank S. 24-04-2020 17:31

Zipper is a little rough to get started, but it is warm and works well in a light rain

| Steven B. 24-04-2020 16:58

Great product from a trusted brand.

| Eric B. 22-04-2020 22:35

Seems to be a well-made hoodie. However, I am done with Carhartt products...the sizing is all over the place, no consistency. Additionally, they don't offer free returns, so when you order a size you think should fit, and it's completely off, you have to pay to send it back. I've been burned on this one time too many and am done.

| Antawon J. 19-04-2020 19:57

I absolutely love hoodie very much I plan on getting another soon!

| Kim H. 18-04-2020 21:48

Living in a rainy and wet environment, this is the perfect sweatshirt for everyday use, and staying dry. This is the go-to sweatshirt for days of drizzle and wind.

| Eastsider72 17-04-2020 17:42

Bought this as a gift for my son at his request. His old one finally wore out and he needed it replaced. Only sweatshirt that he has been happy with for looks and durability. Highly recommend .

| Louis B. 15-04-2020 19:56

Just the right size, and with enough extra to that I can layer it during the winter months.

| Pat P. 09-04-2020 17:50

Great all around heavy sweatshirt. It’s my go to. Heavy zipper, great pockets.

| Alan P. 03-04-2020 18:18

I have a very old Hooded Zip Front Sweatshirt with Black Thermal lining that is falling apart and I was hoping that this would replace it. Unfortunately this new one is NOT as comfortable and is tighter than the older fuller cut Zippered Hoody, so I returned this one. Oh well, I guess I will just wear my old one till it falls apart.

| Jacob E. 01-04-2020 23:11

Highly recommend!

| Eric B. 30-03-2020 08:54

I was Leary of spending this much on a sweatshirt, but went for it. I haven’t for one second regretted this purchase. It’s comfortable, heavy and the rain hasn’t soaked through any time I’ve had it on in the rain. The fit is perfect I usually go up one size to layer when needed. All in all aside from some scrubs this is the first carhartt purchase and definitely won’t be the last.

| Jonathan E. 30-03-2020 00:09

Runs to big in size

| Matthew B. 28-03-2020 00:09

Nice jacket. I believe Carhartt has made the hoods bigger which is a bonus compared to the last two jackets I've owned. This actually covers my whole head with room for play. I just wish it had an inside pocket for my phone. I wear an XL in shirts, but with Carhartt jackets, I do a Large.

| Maria S. 26-03-2020 21:03

This is a very nice sweatshirt, fits perfectly; just as described. Would be buying in a different color.

| Alexander I. 24-03-2020 00:40

Based on the information on the Carhartt web sight, Xtra large should fit. Anticipating the arrival of this sweatshirt, as my XL champion is about done. put it on, and its like wearing a moo moo. Cut the sleeves off, and make a hooded poncho. Could pitch this thing and eat my lunch under it. This thing is so big, it could cover 1/10 of Chuck Norris’s awesomeness.

| Kenneth T. 23-03-2020 20:19

Great product it's a carhartt do I need to say more?

| Michelle M. 19-03-2020 23:49

Warm roomy runs large very comfortable and great quality .

| Ron L. 18-03-2020 19:58

Great product

| joe 12-03-2020 16:44

Good jacket

| Lori W. 10-03-2020 19:28

Husband loved it he wore it when it was snowing and worked out great.

| Nicholas Q. 08-03-2020 17:09

The sizes run way too big. I’m 5’11”and the medium hoodie goes down to my knees. It’s more of a hoodie dress really...I washed and dried it a couple times...it’s almost a normal size now.

| Anthony K. 07-03-2020 17:44

Great fit, comfortable and warm. Water resistance works well after working one evening in light rain.

| Peter 03-03-2020 14:54

I love the feel of the material and the warmth and comfort.<br />A good choice.

| Zachary L. 03-03-2020 02:11

This is the second heavy weight hoodie my dad has bought me in my life. I'm 41. I still wear the first one he bought me when I was 21.<br /><br />Carhartt makes the absolute highest quality sweatshirts in the world. Period.

| Michael K. 02-03-2020 19:50

It's hard to believe but honestly it runs a size big... Awesome typical quality of genuine Carhartt but if you order 1 size smaller then you normally wear it will fit fine.

| Karen C. 27-02-2020 18:25

I have 3 Carhartt products (the pull over hoodie, the full zip hoodie and a crew neck sweatshirt) and I love all 3 of them!

| Lynn P. 25-02-2020 13:14

When feeding cattle ou in the cold and wet, this sweatshirt beats anything I’ve worn. It’s warm, water resistant and yet it’s not heavy where I feel weighted down or unable to move freely. It’s the best !

| NANgc 24-02-2020 19:47

I bought this for my husband. I have ordered them several times for him and he loves them. He is always cold and these are his winter go-to all the time. He says it is the only thing that keeps him warm. The rain-defender is a bonus.

| Carlos S. 22-02-2020 17:21

Grey sweater! Very comfortable very warm. My favorite sweater so far.

| Sergio L. 21-02-2020 18:20

Already zipper broke:(<br />Faded too first wash

| david c. 18-02-2020 18:08

fits great nice and warm.I would recommend this product.

| Austan O. 17-02-2020 02:52

My son really likes his jacket

| Jorge 13-02-2020 22:36

Great zip up. I love it they run a bit large so if you want a snug fit i am 185lbs 5’10” and usually a med but got a small and it fits great

| Demetruis R. 10-02-2020 18:07

Perfect material

| Mark S. 09-02-2020 21:42

I love them<br />Best for cold <br />Best for when it’s coming a light rain <br />Much easier to put on rather than a pullover hoodie!!

| Jean S. 09-02-2020 03:28

Had to return jacket and order two sizes down from recommended size based on measurements and the fit by comparing another brand simulation.

| Joshua M. 08-02-2020 02:06

Warm. Durable. Stylish. Good working hoodie. Wish the 4xl came in a 4xlt. I’m 6’2” 310lbs. Would have liked longer sleeves.

| Curtis H. 04-02-2020 23:55

Easy to put on and off without having to pull over head but needs better zippers .<br /><br />Comfortable to wear and repels water .<br /><br />On first washing zipper broke off in a normal washing machine and won't go back on .<br /><br />Wish it had more and better pockets that had closures on them .

| Austin S. 04-02-2020 22:29

Great jacket! Where it in the rain/sleet/snow. Protects all types of weather. Fits perfectly

| Alejandro M. 03-02-2020 03:04

I’ve never own a car hart sweater or product and it was perfect like a glove I will definitely will be buying more clothes. <br /><br />Thanks!

| Philip H. 03-02-2020 01:43

Love it, perfect for working around my small farm. Even had some light rain and cold weather for Florida. Definitely recommend! I normally wear large but Carhartt seems to run large so medium is fine for me.

| Anne J. 31-01-2020 20:09

My husband liked it, fit him over his winter shirt

| susan n. 25-01-2020 23:43

My husband loves it ! Works great in the rain when taking the dogs out.<br /><br />Sue Nolan

| Christopher L. 25-01-2020 00:40

metal zippers a must for welding and grinding love the rain Defender the review will would not let me select a fit so I will tell you it runs true to size

| Scott H. 23-01-2020 19:40

Excellent quality super heavy duty

| Korey G. 22-01-2020 18:46

I would give 5 stars, however, the hoodie is extremely large for a 2XL and Carhartt will not let me exchange for a smaller size. It is probably the nicest hoodie I've ever owned aside from that. Rain repels right off of it and it's super warm!

| Justin D. 21-01-2020 21:43

Very warm hooded jackets. No problems with them.

| Audrey M. 17-01-2020 18:33

Waistband is very small relative to rest of jacket. Material has a stiffness texture. No opportunity yet to test rain protection . Quality seems to be good. Doesn’t cut the wind so warmth ok.

| Sherrie S. 17-01-2020 15:43

Great quality and fits true to size

| Larry M. 16-01-2020 14:13

I love the weight of this hoodie. It feels like the light coat I wanted. The fit is perfect. Wish I had bought it years ago.

| Sven G. 14-01-2020 18:03

Another quality product.

| Alberto L 14-01-2020 13:58

Great quality not to bulky but still heavyweight.

| Phillip P. 11-01-2020 20:40

Only thing is hoods are a little big.Other than that my Owner liked the product.

| TINA R. 11-01-2020 17:48

I love my Carhartt hoodie!!

| John P. 10-01-2020 18:30

The day I received it ,it was cold and rainy and it worked awesome the only reason I did not answer the durability question because I have only had it for about a month but so far so good

| Justin C. 10-01-2020 17:50

Great sweatshirt, Comfortable warm and looks great while wearing it

| Charles S. 09-01-2020 17:53

It was great but good look good

| Virginia V. 08-01-2020 17:51

My husband says it is great to wear ! Love how snow or rain does not make it wet!

| Keith P. 07-01-2020 19:37

I really liked it but the zipper broke within the first few days. I had to return it. Considering the pullover but I might put it off until next year.

| DEBBIE T. 07-01-2020 02:22

Bought this for my husband who is 6'3", 300 lbs. His arms are long too

| Crystal K. 06-01-2020 23:16

One of my favorite sweat shirts!!! Super comfy and durable!!! Will buy more!! Love the inner small pocket!!!

| John H. 06-01-2020 19:02

Excellent jacket Lightweight and warm And true to size.

| Violet S. 06-01-2020 12:52

One hoodie navy blue they really liked as a gift. Really warm...the other I sent back to get a refund because they changed their mind.

| Deborah D. 05-01-2020 20:26

It’s made well and my husband loves it!

| William T. 05-01-2020 15:40

Very well made

| Richard B. 03-01-2020 23:12

I really like this sweatshirt. The fabric feels like it will hold up to a lot of abuse. It is comfortable and warm. The only thing is I feel like the sweatshirt could be a little longer. Overall I am very pleased with it

| Chris B. 02-01-2020 17:54

Great hoodie. Fits great, warm, and water proof.

| Dennis W. 30-12-2019 00:25

Gift for someone and he loves it.....

| Rob T. 29-12-2019 17:45

I love the thickness and how it feels. Will definitely be ordering another zip hoodie sweatshirt

| Scott H. 28-12-2019 18:01

This product purchase was determined based upon my previous Carhartt hoodie sweatshirt that has lasted over 11 years and is still pretty much perfect, even if a little bit warn. The new Navy Blue Color I just purchased is wonderful and looks great.<br /><br />It is super warm, and I love the fact you can wear it in the rain, I just did that in the last few days. Plus it looks very nice, the quality is excellent, or superb. The fit is perfect.<br /><br />The double lined hood makes a big difference in warmth and comfort. This is one of the main reasons I prefer Carhartt Hoodies.<br /><br />You will love this product all the way around. It is the Heavy Duty Hoodie!

| Joan H. 28-12-2019 13:03

I bought this for my husband. He really likes the rain defender brand. The only problem is that the jacket is large on him. The large tall was a bit snug, so there appears to be a big jump in size between the two sizes. We are keeping the jacket, however. I am able to alter it if he wants it a little smaller.

| Callie F. 13-12-2019 10:43

My husband loves it... I use it when he dont and I love it as well.. its comfortable and light weighted

| Marjorie H. 12-12-2019 20:30

The hoodie is better than expected. First, it is well made. It has ample room to move in. Did I mention that it is warm, really warm!<br /><br /> A typical Carhartt product. Made for the outdoors, made to last.<br /><br />I highly recommend this product.

| Christy B. 12-12-2019 20:10

Love the rain defender material great for working outside when its snowing or sprinkling

| Jon F. 12-12-2019 19:56

Love it.<br />I’ve purchased several Rain Defender Sweatshirts for family and friends. It’s a perfect, long lasting gift.

| Robert L. 10-12-2019 19:14

This hooded heavyweight sweatshirt does exactly as advertised. Is great to wear in light rain, and heavy enough to keep warm. <br /> And, this hoodie is a great compliment to the Carhartt Arctic Duck Quilt Lined Traditional jacket I bought a few months ago.

| Wayne W. 04-12-2019 20:07

The best hoodie I've ever purchased. Perfect for the fall and winter. I've already tested it in light rain and was very impressed with the results. Got hung on a nail the other day and it didn't tear the hoodie like in the past with other hoodies.

| Jennifer B. 04-12-2019 15:29

My husband loves this hoodie. He is a Carthart fan and has loved everything he has gotten.

| Jason M. 03-12-2019 22:11

Great fit and very comfortable.

| Roselia T. 03-12-2019 20:38

Very nice I love it

| Ryan G. 02-12-2019 18:33

Great Quality! Very,very Warm. However it does run a little larger than the standard zipper front hoodie.

| Jeff S. 28-11-2019 02:24

I lovev it ! Perfect for working on the elements!

| Violet L. 25-11-2019 23:18

I thought I ordered the one with a lining in it this one has no lining still nice jacket but needed the one with the lining

| Bryan T. 24-11-2019 06:12

I love the Paxton full-zip hooded sweatshirt. It's built with high quality, looks great, feels great, very warm. I give it my top recommendation. The Paxton's hood is much better than the oddly small hood of the Rutland, so if you don't require thermal lining, consider the Paxton for its spacious, normal-size hood.

| Troy H. 23-11-2019 17:45

Very warm, fits well

| Paul S. 22-11-2019 18:03

I really love this hoodie!!! Great comfort and feel. Got caught in the rain and the rain just rolled off. Just as advertised. I would recommend this to anyone who works outside. I pair it with a Carhartt full swing jacket and stay warm and dry all day.<br />Both are a great buy!!

| John D. 13-11-2019 19:41

Another excellent Carhartt purchase. Comfortable and warm. My only recommendation is that you buy one size smaller. I’m a medium and the small fits me perfectly!Bethlehem

| Stephen O. 09-11-2019 18:10

This is a seriously hardcore hoody! Warm and cozy alllll day. It’s a little too big but I imagine might shrink some after first wash??. YES I would recommend to anyone looking for a decent quality priced product.

| Josh B. 08-11-2019 18:24

The belly area is huge. A 9 month pregnant woman could ware it. Besides that it’s great

| Robert F. 08-11-2019 15:42

I like everything about it. It keeps me warm and dry.

| Chris 08-11-2019 13:57

I typically love carhartt. I buy my employees all carhartt gear and they love it, but I bought a sweatshirt from them and loved it until I washed it. This sweatshirt got destroyed and I washed it by itself. It came out of the washer with pills all over it. It looks like the interior of the sweatshirt was washed with steel wool. I can’t return it either cause I washed it.

| Ronald S. 07-11-2019 02:00

I had one before and it was time for a new one so i bought 3 of them!! Best coat i have ever owned. I work out in the elaments (Rain, Snow) It keeps me dry. Thank you for a great product

| Corey B. 06-11-2019 12:55

I do miss the old carhartt sweatshirts. The fabric was cotton just felt different. Maybe they were just reminiscent of fabric I was used to.<br />I've gotten used to and I like this new product line.<br />The carhartt sweatshirts do repel a lite rain. Feel like a quality thick sweatshirt. More colors I assume will be available with time.

| Debbie U. 06-11-2019 05:24

love it,my women stuff,and his,so good to work in.

| Jesse P. 01-11-2019 17:53

This is a great hoodie only bad thing is after a year of owning the arm cuffs are frayed and ripped I was hoping it would last a little longer

| Dolan L. 29-10-2019 16:59

I had to buy a small which was super hard to find but I love it it’s warm lightweight and very comfortable

| R R. 29-10-2019 15:06

Great hoodie only down side is the hood part should be just a little more deeper. I find myself always pulling my hood back up because its always falling off.

| Cesar H. 28-10-2019 17:13

First off let say I love Carhartt been wearing there stuff for a long time my dad been wearing since the early 90s , I love this hoodie very comfortable , thick material and holds up good in any work environment I would categorize this as a warmer but certainly not the warmest Runs a bit larger so if you’re a medium order a small

| PETER N. 28-10-2019 16:41

Love it. Second one for me.

| linda d. 27-10-2019 21:53

It was a hit. It was a much wanted gift.

| Robert C. 27-10-2019 02:33

Zipper broke after first use Carhartt don’t cover zippers $70 junk trash

| MetalZone 20-10-2019 16:02

This is my second Rain Defender Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip-Front Sweatshirt. I lost weight so I’m ordering 2XL instead of my regular 4XL which I’m happy to say. This hoodie is my go to for fall and layering in the winter with my jean jacket. It’s A tougher material than the regular hoodie so wind doesn’t penetrate as easily plus it’s waterproof. My favorite hoodie ever.

| ERIK A. 17-10-2019 17:36

This sweatshirt is amazing. Love it. Wear it almost everyday. Keeps we warm.

| wallacep406170486 16-10-2019 20:46

purchased one of these and the dye on the neck of the hood turned brown. I thought I just got a poor dye job on it so I purchased another one and it did the same thing. I would not recommend buying one. not very good quality from Carhartt.

| Jonathan K. 13-10-2019 16:23

there are many full zip hoodies on line here. not sure which one i bought but the zipper is flawed after 6 months of use. its a heavy duty zipper but it became frayed where its attached to the main body, and won't zip closed making it pretty useless. it won't zip closed. will have to see how much it will be to replace the zipper. maybe i go to Dave's on 6th ave and see if they will make good on it.

| Gina S. 08-10-2019 00:11

Initially my husband loved this sweatshirt, but here it is less than a year later and the zipper broke right off of it in the wash, it’s unfixable. Poor quality for a brand that’s supposed to be known for its rugged durability!

| Jim D. 07-10-2019 15:25

Well made, great fit.

| Dan L. 06-10-2019 07:05

Love this hoodie just got it and it was poring outside and it works great

| Aaron A. 04-10-2019 13:21

Wanted to leave a review on this jacket as I spent a good deal of time reading reviews before I purchased it. Here are the things I was worried about based on other reviews:<br />1) Zipper - The zipper works like any other zipper I have ever used. I have no issues zipping up and down so no complaints there. <br />2) Size - It seemed like the consensus of reviews stated that these run large. I took their advice and ordered a medium when I usually wear a large. The jacket fits perfectly.<br />3) Hood - Some reviewers had complaints about the hood size. It seems like a normal sized hood to me. No complaints.<br /><br />I haven't wore this out in the rain yet to comment on its ability to defend against rain. Overall, this jacket seems heavy duty (as it should as it is stated as "heavy" in the description); however, so far I don't get too hot in it which is perfect for fall and heavy enough to replace my coat in the winter. The jacket seems extremely durable so it *should* last a long time. This is my first Carhartt purchase and I'm happy with it so far.

| Judy G. 03-10-2019 18:58

My son is very pleased with his Rain Defender Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip-front sweat shirt. He appreciates that it is rain proof to a certain extent. He really appreciates the zip up front. He has a pull over Carhart, but he does not like pull over. As far as heavy weight, I feel that the zip up is light weight not heavy weight. His pull over is heavy weight.

| Tiffany E. 03-10-2019 14:22

I bought this for my son. He doesn't like wearing a coat, even when he walks to school every day through the winter. This is a great sweater for the fall and spring but surprisingly thin. Also, it looks black in the picture but is a lighter shade. I like the thought he will stay dry and it looks good, too and it seems to be comfortable. He is six feet tall and wanted an extra large tall. He's thin so I didn't think x large would work for him but it does. I will have to buy him a thicker one for the winter.

| James S. 03-10-2019 03:50

Love it water proof warm and thicker than that cheesy Walmart hoodies.

| Kevin D. 30-09-2019 16:51

It is warm and durable. I do not like jackets much, this is a good substitute

| jason d. 26-09-2019 17:22

these work vary well

| Francis M. 26-09-2019 16:52

The jacket is great

| Shawn F. 16-09-2019 16:25

Definitely a well made jacket that will keep me warm and dry during the Minnesota harvest.

| Maurice S. 15-09-2019 14:02

I live in central Maine and this product performs excellently. It works very well as a mid-weight rainy weather sweatshirt to wear in the fall.

| Jared M. 11-09-2019 17:55

I love this Hoodie, except for in the rain. First storm and the hood is completely soaked, the rest seems fine so far. I wish it was more rain resistant. Otherwise it seems very durable.

| Timothy 09-09-2019 23:00

Great for those cold mornings that are going to warm up.

| DrewJ 27-08-2019 13:29

Great fit and look!

| John B. 26-08-2019 18:04


| Charles G. 17-08-2019 17:46

Fit, construction, color as expected. Would recommend.

| James M. 19-07-2019 17:01

Fits great, feels tough and comfortable. Water beads off well.

| Lewis S. 17-06-2019 20:29

I had lost my previous hoodie that I had owned for a few years. Then I lost misplaced it at a restaurant and when I went back to retrieve it, it was no longer there.<br />I went online to Carhartt and found one that seemed suitable. My prior one was so durable and comfortable I wanted another like it. My last one was grey but this time I opted for blue. My hoodie is my go to for the cold, rain sometimes even for just a cloudy day. The quality just can't be beat.

| Eduardo F. 14-06-2019 17:00

It is great quality. Runs a little big.

| June P. 23-05-2019 19:56

It's a gift for grandson going to college in No. California. I'm sure he will love it. Much colder and wetter there than So. California.

| Patricia P. 16-05-2019 23:10

I bought this for my husband and he absolutely loves it. Great fit and it keeps him warm during the cool nights. He likes the idea it’s rain resistant, but has had a chance to try it out. I feel it is worth the money and I will definitely be buying more.

| Ryan W. 13-05-2019 20:47

5th one and will continue to buy more

| Arnold D. 07-05-2019 00:09

I didn’t get a chance to wear jacket, XL size was too large. But jacket quality appeared to very durable. Will buy the large size.

| LIZA M. 03-05-2019 21:38

Nice heavy sweatshirt. Love Carhartt!

| Bruce W. 23-04-2019 21:46

I have owned a black and grey one and neither hold their colour. Totally faded to a pinky gray on the shoulders and arms within the first year. Neither of them where ready to dispose of but ended up backyard wear only. What a shame because they are really comfortable.

| Scott W. 21-04-2019 18:31


| Chuck 19-04-2019 15:28

Great hoody only drawback is the so called cell phone pocket. It doesn't fit my phone and just gets in the way.

| Richard M. 17-04-2019 16:59

Love it! This is my third one.

| Betty C. 17-04-2019 15:31

I love the fit and it’s comfortable all day . I wear it instead of my winter jacket.

| Charles V. 15-04-2019 16:13

All the family has one.

| Antoinette C. 04-04-2019 21:05

This was a gift, and was a huge success. Fit even better than expected.<br />My 6’2’ son loves this!

| Sharon F. 04-04-2019 20:48

My husband is very pleased with the fit.

| Matthew S. 23-03-2019 00:15

Highly recommend

| Joy S. 18-03-2019 19:38

Gift for my hard to buy for husband. He liked it!

| Ryangilks 17-03-2019 17:52

Warm and fits great. Wear it all the time.

| Brent N. 17-03-2019 17:47

Very light and nice. Never been let down with Carhartt as a hard working cabinet maker/ carpenter their clothing is out of this world. Can't wait for the snow to melt to try my new Carhartt steel toed work boots

| Jiwon J. 13-03-2019 00:33

Bit shorter than midweight hoodie in overall length, so it's makes better fit than midwight hoodie of looking like wearing daddy's big clothes.Pretty warm in chilly weathers, but it doesn't have protection for neck area, so better wear inner shirts or sweatshirts in extreme conditions.

| John S. 11-03-2019 18:53

Love it keeps me dry that's why I own two

| Gary C. 10-03-2019 18:05

Great jackets

| Jose H. 08-03-2019 20:56

It’s awesome looks great and it’s just what I was looking for.

| Rafael G. 02-03-2019 00:49

looks good, feels good and fit just right

| Christopher A. 27-02-2019 18:46

Great sweater perfect for working outside when it’s sprinkling it also keeps me warm

| Jon F. 27-02-2019 06:37

I got this hoody for my dad for his bday. He needed a warm waterprood hoody to wear under his heavy jacket while walking his dog, (winter in Idaho.) He says this is the best hoody he has ever owned!

| Jordan C. 22-02-2019 21:32

I have 2 of these hoodies as a pullover and I love them so much I decided to try the zippered one out. Glad i did because it’s just as good if not better then the pullover. Not sure why it’s so much more expensive but, it’s the carhartt quality I’ve come to know and love so it’s fine.

| Rhonda G. 22-02-2019 19:58

Thank you Carhartt! My husband and I are outdoors a lot we love this jacket! This is his second one. lm glad you had in stock. ??Rhonda G.

| Linda S. 21-02-2019 00:07

Although I really like this sweatshirt , I have found that the cuffs wear out within a year. It’s very frustrating when you have a sweatshirt that wears like iron and still has very little fading but because of the unraveling cuffs makes it look very shabby!!!<br />

| Louis R. 17-02-2019 15:30

After 2yrs of hard year around usage I’ve replaced my sweatshirt With the same well made great fitting one.

| Richard H. 16-02-2019 22:22

This is a replacement for the one a bought many years back. Excellent jacket. Great for all weather occasions. I like the fact it is water repellent and can be for all temperatures. Ohio has extreme weather changes and this is my go to jacket. Rain or snow it does a great job.<br />I wear this jacket spring, winter, and fall. Just glad to be able to replace it with a new one exactly like the old. Even the old one still is good but just a little faded from so may washings.<br />Complete satisfied!

| Miguel C. 07-02-2019 21:13

Great warm sweater. Well worth the money. Quality is a five star. I will definitely be buying more.

| Russell F. 05-02-2019 18:16

no problems

| Noah G. 01-02-2019 16:46

Great hoodie. The fit is exactly what I expected. The rain repellent works as described. Will definitely be getting more of these!

| Keith Z. 31-01-2019 15:00

I have worn this sweatshirt for the past year, it has held up well to the constant wear week after week. I wear a sweatshirt during the majority of the year, with the rain defender it is my go to in wet or snowy weather. I typically wear 2XL Tall, but I ordered a 3XL because of layering, sizing was accurate. I am planning on purchasing another so I can rotate and keep a clean sweatshirt available.

| Michael C. 29-01-2019 21:15

The garment is warm and sheds water as advertised. I suggest washing before wearing because I had a large amount of fuzz balls all over my shirt when I removed the garment. Washing did correct this unexpected issue

| Is O. 28-01-2019 20:31

Ive worn carhartt for years. I currently work outside in nj. I wear a underarmor shirt my work shirt and this hood and im straight in 20 degrees weather. The best work hood i ever. I also wore in a heavy down pour rain and didnt get wet. Keep the great work up carhartt.

| Michael T. 28-01-2019 15:12

I already own one but after extensive wear and tear every day, I was in need of a new replacement. Excellent warmth for winter wear and perfect for the rainy weather too. It is perfect for year round use.

| Corry L. 27-01-2019 21:26

It fit perfectly would buy again

| Tyler G. 25-01-2019 16:16

Zipper broke in the wash after three months of use. Otherwise, good.

| Jordan P. 21-01-2019 23:58

The rain defender hooded sweatshirt is comfortable and fits true to size

| Brett B. 21-01-2019 23:17

A bit thicker and stiffer than the original mid wieght hoodies. Super warm and durable. The waist band and cuffs are a bit tighter and wider than the mid weight hoodies.

| T-REV 18-01-2019 07:05

The best hoodie I have ever owned!! Well, one of the best as I also have the Rutland thermal lines carhartt hoodie lol. Each hoodie lasts me 3 years at least with nearly daily wear in the winter for work and at home.

| Donna E. 16-01-2019 23:24

Store at Independence Center Very nice and so helpful. Received updates on our shipment. Couldn’t have been any better. Thank You

| Frank P. 12-01-2019 20:13

Excellent quality well made fits perfect and very comfortable.

| Erin M. 12-01-2019 18:28

Great quality. Well made.

| James B. 11-01-2019 22:01

I like it haven’t gotten a chance to actually test it in the rain yet but it’s nice and comfortable.

| Michael D. 11-01-2019 13:51

Awesome gear for Montana winters..!!!

| Joel B. 09-01-2019 18:07

Zipper seems very sticky, had to start near the bottom of the zip line.

| Tricia H. 07-01-2019 18:48

Love these sweatshirts! They’re think, but keep you super warm. They run true to Carhartt sizes, and are just great for work or whatever you’re doing.

| Trevor M. 06-01-2019 17:56

Always a solid buy

| isabel s. 02-01-2019 18:38

Bought it for my son he really likes it

| Stephenie P. 31-12-2018 18:53

As someone who is 6'4", it's hard to find sweaters that dont ride up. Quality made, lightweight, and toasty warm. Able to wear a hat and have the hood up comfortably, fits arms perfectly and never shows my stomach, even with my arms above my head. It's good stuff!

| Stigsvk 31-12-2018 18:31

Feels nice, looks good, is not as thick as I expected, but I really do like it. Few things to know: the "peat" looks quite grey-ish on the product picture, but little bit more green-ish in reality and the zipper that looks darker and rounded on the product picture, is more of the classic squared one (look at the picture @joericstreeter posted) and the size "small" is just "small on the Carhartt scale" ;)

| Edward M. 30-12-2018 22:11

This is my every day work hoodie, thick to fight off he cold weather and has a nice Hood to protect you from the cold and rain. It has some weight to it...but nothing to crazy.. this hoodie well keep you warm.

| Mark L. 30-12-2018 16:16

Great Hooded Sweat shirt.

| Todd A. 27-12-2018 21:10

Sweatshirt is good looking, well made and very comfortable but the hood is on the small side. When I have the hood up with full zip it barely covers my head. Specifically, it doesn't come far enough down in the front while remaining tight on the rear-crown of my melon. I do have a relatively small head too (7.25" fitted hat). Odd for something that is advertised to perform in the rain, which by the way it does sans the tiny hood. Love the waistband and cuff elastic as it is tight enough while allowing room for movement without riding up, and not sloppy with memory loss like the Rutland (Rutland is the warmer heavyweight though and better in the wind). Also be prepared to snag your fingers on the interior security pocket every time you try to put your hands in the main pockets. Wish this came in more colors. Very good product just be sure you wear a hat in the rain and cut the security pocket out (not too secure anyway).

| michael t. 26-12-2018 18:46

Nice heavy sweatshirt

| Roger 26-12-2018 18:15

The hooded sweatshirt is of high quality. It is very warm and repels rain effectively.

| Elizabeth S. 21-12-2018 20:56

Awesome Sweatshirt

| Antonio L. 18-12-2018 21:16

Well made product you won’t be disappointed.

| Bennie L. 09-12-2018 03:17

Very comfortable and fills and looks very nice

| FRED R. 04-12-2018 18:58

Well made. Durable. Warm. Looks good. I now have three.

| Nikki 04-12-2018 03:01

Great quality!!!

| Cindy V. 22-11-2018 23:20

Works great for rainy days and is nice and warm

| Mark A. 19-11-2018 19:07

As with all carhartts fits a little large but thats good for me, and great quality, will 2,3x longer than other brands.

| Susan L. 16-11-2018 18:18

At McCann Fabrication, we ordered a bunch of these for our fabricators. Everyone loves them!

| Linda S. 12-11-2018 18:06

It serves the purpose it was purchased for. Durable material.

| pamela g. 12-11-2018 07:41

Not the same quality I'm used to getting from you the zippers font go up or down without getting caught there nice but dissapointed not as well made as in poor years

| Edwin A. 11-11-2018 21:14

Great, can’t complain about anything

| Jeffrey W. 11-11-2018 19:05

As much as I like the coat it is difficult to know the warmth level from simply seeing it online. I would prefer to go to a Carhartt store prior to purchasing a coat online if I am not familiar with it. Luckily there is 1 in my area.

| patrick d. 10-11-2018 18:03

fits well warm and attractive good quality

| Keith F. 09-11-2018 02:38

Nice sweatshirt ... runs slightly large but not too bad.<br />Zipper is sticky at the bottom when first zipping .. hope it gets better with use. But it's nice and warm .. happy with purchase. Oh yeah got caught in the rain with it on and it repels water like a duck. Very good feature for this garment!

| tori s. 03-11-2018 19:09

I wore this jacket ALL winter last year here in PA. It is so warm and comfy and totally repels rain and snow. It was my work jacket, but I got paint all over it. So I am here not only to buy another one for work, but also one for every day wear. Winner, WINNER!!!!!!

| Albert M. 03-11-2018 17:18

Zipper is not smooth. I tried lubricant but no good. Also not as heavy as my old one.

| Ron F. 31-10-2018 18:52

Fits great love it perfect for the work I do

| steven r. 31-10-2018 14:56

Very comfortable, warm, durable jacket.<br />Great layer jacket for work or casual wearing.<br />My son wears his when working outside in extreme weather conditions. wind chill of 0-20 degrees

| bertsheridan 29-10-2018 19:53

I recently purchased the RD zip front sweatshirt and love it. I was out in the rain, a steady rain not a downpour, and stayed completely dry. It was about 55 and I stayed warm as well. Definitely recommend this jacket!

| Malery A. 15-09-2018 23:47

Very comfortable and warm! The perfect weight for everyday wear. Wicks away the rain really well, and it fitted enough to perfectly pair with a vest or wear under a coat for winter.

| Fred A. 13-09-2018 19:49

This is my third one of the Paxton. I work outside in the Northwest where it rains a bit. I am amazed at how dry this so called lightweight jacket keeps me. The Rain Defender definitely works. I highly endorse this product. Thanks.

| regina s. 10-09-2018 00:56

had one bought another so it is really good

| David S. 25-07-2018 09:57

Decent sweatshirt, true heavyweight original loose fit. A bit too baggy on the mid section though. Hand warmer pockets shallow but my biggest disappointment with this sweatshirt is that the hood is too shallow. Barely covers my head, constantly have to pull it over, really disappointing. Rain defender technology works. Had a hole pop up on one corner of the hand warmer hem before the first wash. Was quite excited to get this Carhartt sweatshirt but turned out not to be a the level of satisfaction I expected from a Carhartt product.

| Jim G. 19-06-2018 03:27

I bought my Carhartt hoody for those times when I'm scouting for turkey in the spring. These scouting trips are usually wet and always abusive on my outerwear. Pre-Carhartt, I'd wear just any hoody, but they just didn't stand up to the abuse in the field and certainly not the rain. The nice thing is that I not only upgraded in performance, but also in comfort.

| Nwengr1 10-06-2018 21:23

Keeps a modest rain away .. though will lose some of this functionality as you wash it repeatedly .. so take it easy. Still my favorite thing to wear if I am chilly .. very comfortable as well. Hood is the right size as well. Very impressed.

| Josh M. 21-05-2018 23:19

Like the fabric but the zipper is bulky. I have one from two years ago and it is smaller. I would like it more fitted.

| James B. 14-05-2018 22:56

I used your which size fits me process, completed all the questions as needed - the sweatshirt swims on me - I will be returning it for the next size down<br />Other then that looks like a well built sweatshirt hope it will last as long as the one I am replacing

| Travis S. 11-05-2018 18:42

It’s awesome

| W E. 01-05-2018 00:44

It'snot as water resistant as I would like but okay.

| Mark M. 27-04-2018 10:58

Carhartt Sweatshirts really keep you warm on those Cold Winter Days. I love the Zip up front and the Pockets are deep to keep my phone. Plus they even keep me dry on the Wet Days as well. Will be buying one for my Family as well.

| Patrick 19-04-2018 15:01

Sorry for the length of this, but you should read it if you're on the fence about buying like I was.<br />Just got mine in the mail yesterday. I don't usually order clothing offline because in my experience it's never really the right size. Even going by the reviews on here, I figured they ran large as everything said, I'm a small guy. So I ordered a small. It's tight in the spare tire section. I don't really mind, but when you sit down ... it doesn't lay flat to your body and you have to either sit, look kind of dumb, and deal or unzip and be cold. As far as appearance, it looks fine. I will say I was slightly disappointed when it wasn't black. The black option is more of a faded black, like a shirt that's been washed too many times. I was also surprised that the zipper sticks like a son of a gun. I tried slow. I tried fast. I tried starting and stopping. I tried holding it taut. Still sticks in some spots. You would think a 70$ hoodie would have the technology to surpass these things. As far as comfort, it's a solid okay. It's not silk and it's not sandpaper. The overall comfort is a little messed up I think because of the "heavyweight" part. The fabric is pretty stiff, but I think that will loosen over time hopefully. The heaviest part of this hoodie is the hood. I was surprised to find that a 15$ hoodie from Sear's was thicker. Lastly, the rain defender is no joke. I don't play games, if you make a claim and have me spend almost a 100$ I want it to be legit. I opened the bag, slapped it on, immediately put my arm under a running faucet. Worked incredibly well. I was very impressed. But I pushed the limit and held it there for a while and it eventually did soak in. Altogether with everything I've said... Probably never buying Carhartt clothing offline unless I see it in person and they don't have the right size. I'm not saying Carhartt is a bad company or have bad products, I'm just saying that if I had know all of these things before I bought this particular fairly expensive hoodie I would not have done it. It's middle of the road for me so I went with 3 stars.

| Benjamin 16-04-2018 14:13

Great quality and it will last a long time I'm amazed by the material strong and tough thanks!

| Steve R. 15-04-2018 16:40

The hoodies are cut large in my opinion but that is good. But I forget and get a size larger online and then have to exchange it. They have a good store in Chicago that is a little hard to park your car when you go there but it is worth the effort to stop in. I have had a dozen or so carhardt hoodies in my life and this rain defender model seems as good as ever. Have to wear a uniform at work but everything under top layer is carhartt.

| Paul T. 12-04-2018 18:43

Great fit..very comfortable. Wore during a rain storm...was surprised as to how well sweatshirt repelled rain.

| chris r. 30-03-2018 18:21

Great heavy duty hoodie

| Heidi A. 20-03-2018 17:08

I bought this hoodie to keep me warm in a warehouse that gets freezing in the wintertime. I fell in love with it so much that I had to get a second one. The fit was typical for Carhartt, not too big but big enough that one can move around and work comfortably. A few times that I have worn it while it was snowing or lightly raining and this thing kept me dry. There’s a reason why I always buy things with the Carhartt name, I know I’m gonna get what I need.

| glowinthedark 10-03-2018 13:11

I love this rain defender hoodie and wear it in the North Idaho winters with just a heavy tee shirt most of the time. Only problem I have is after just 2 years of lite use, the wrist cuffs are coming apart. I will buy a new one but wish it would have lasted longer.

| Brian C. 01-03-2018 19:16

It showed up the the mail with a hole in the pocket.

| Steve H. 01-03-2018 13:34

This is the greatest work hoodie around. The Rain Defender is much warmer than the lightweight hoodies. I only need to wear a t-shirt underneath of them in PA winters. Very durable, as I've had two others for over two years that are still in excellent shape, even after working outside. The Rain Defender repels water better than any competitor I've tried. 10/10 would wear again.

| Trudy L. 28-02-2018 18:18

It was a gift and he said he likes it a lot, it's light and warm.

| Donald W. 25-02-2018 14:28

Comfortable and durable. Worth every penny

| Lori B. 22-02-2018 22:05

Had to return because it ran too large for my husband. Ordered a smaller size and he was very happy with it.

| Eugene T. 21-02-2018 00:27

This sweatshirt is nearly perfect. It combines warmth with water resistance, and is great for layering or on its own during the cooler months.<br /><br />My one complaint is that there's no loop with which to hang the sweatshirt up. A loop on the inside or better yet, a locker loop on the back would make this perfect.<br /><br />The cell phone pocket is unfortunately not suitable for my phone, but is useful for keeping keys separated. I've even occasionally put a Leatherman in that pocket instead.

| Mike 19-02-2018 22:46

Had the Hoodie for 2 months Wash it once the zipper broke.

| Crystal P. 12-02-2018 19:32

Looks great, feels great, and nice and durable.

| Joseph D. 04-02-2018 20:05

Great product at a great price I would definitely recommend this item

| S n. 03-02-2018 18:06

Comfortable, warm and repels water awesome!!! Love it

| Curt C. 31-01-2018 00:51

Excellent mid weight hoodie I recommend

| Frank P. 28-01-2018 23:17

for heavyweight light<br />Zipper is not the same size or quality as my other carhartt

| Jp1991 24-01-2018 22:59

Great, warm, heavy, comfortable, durable, and rain repellent hoodie. It is far superior to any other brand hoodie I've had and well above Carhartt's midweight hoodie. At times it's almost too hot, but that's when the zipper comes in handy. You can cool off without totally removing it. I sized down 1 size from my normal non Carhartt size of large, to a medium.

| Robert S. 15-01-2018 15:43

Water beads up on it like a fresh coat of wax on the truck. I like that the hood is not so large that it hinders peripheral vision. <br />I like it!

| Darrell H. 14-01-2018 19:28

Very warm , great product

| Don S. 14-01-2018 13:48

I absolutely love this! I bought one to try out and have embroidered. It turned out so great that I ended up ordering several more for my employees and family! Warm and fits great! Another great product from Carhartt!

| Kathleen O. 12-01-2018 20:32

As expected, great!

| Roger V. 12-01-2018 18:33

Excellent quality, as usual from Carhartt!

| Nicole W. 04-01-2018 18:54

I bought this for my father in law for Christmas and he loved it. It look just how the picture shown very well made. He wears it when heâ??s outside and loves it keeps him warm from the winter. Thank you carhartt for an amazing product.

| Vicki S. 04-01-2018 06:15

This sweatshirt really stands up to its name, makes for a great work jacket that keeps you dry and is very comfortable, warm and durable.

| Riley W. 02-01-2018 05:58

My old one was awesome it was time for a new one and this new one did not disappoint, love it it should also last me another 10 years love the carhartt line up

| ROSA T. 01-01-2018 19:12

It was gift for my husband and he loves it

| Ed H. 01-01-2018 19:10

Not too impressed. I work outside majority of day. Like the thickness but expected more for rain defending!! So 3 stars it is!!

| Alberta S. 01-01-2018 17:34

True to size,fits very good, and would recommend buying from you.

| T C. 30-12-2017 16:29

Warm, comfortable, great fit. Haven't tested in rain yet but its nice and warm for a cold winter

| Kevin 29-12-2017 12:14

The jacket performed well, but the zipper was very difficult to operate, then the zipper failed. The starting end of the zipper came out of alignment with the handle.

| Douglas M. 29-12-2017 11:40

Love it. Great sweatshirt.

| Suzanne C. 13-12-2017 16:02

I do recommend these rain defense Paxton heavyweight hooded sweatshirt! My husband and son get about 3 of them for Christmas. I also got myself one.

| Joe H. 22-11-2017 22:05

Love it, itâ??s warm and rain proof. Canâ??t beat it.

| Max R. 20-11-2017 15:10

Well when it comes to my guys we only work with the best so thats why we go with Carhartt. No job to big or to small we go the extra mile like Carhartt.

| Jaron C. 12-11-2017 19:57

Amazing. Worth the price and amazing quality. Only gripe I have, which is my own fault, is the size was bigger than expected. So if you don't want it supper baggy and you're an xl I'd go with a large.

| Shane L. 10-11-2017 21:47

Very very warm for a lite jacket/sweat shirt.

| Mark A. 09-11-2017 00:06

Very nice warm jacket

| Al D. 06-11-2017 20:10

The style

| Carol W. 06-11-2017 16:53

This is one of the best items I've bought from Carhartt actually I bought one for my husband when I realized how well made it was I had to order another one for me the size is a good fit the jacket is really waterproof great product now that women like it they should make different colors

| REID S. 06-11-2017 13:06

A great quality jacket.

| JoseLuis H. 03-11-2017 17:17

Itâ??s a nic hoodie but way too big. I have other 2xl hoodies that arenâ??t that big.

| Andrew R. 03-10-2017 02:31

Rain rain go away come again some other day

| Brian L. 29-09-2017 15:47

This was given as a gift. She loves it! Now I can keep mine.<br />Yes I will be ordering one in different color.

| Paul L. 15-08-2017 22:06

Great product. I would buy again.

| Brandon D. 15-08-2017 19:18

I would definitely recommend the Rain Defender Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip-Front Sweatshirt for any kind of outdoor work during cooler weather and its also pretty good to wear hunting!!!

| pat w. 29-07-2017 00:47


| Katherine W. 26-07-2017 00:02

The line of Paxton sweatshirts are my favorite. The rain defender finish on them is perfect for my lifestyle living in the pacific northwest.

| Gavin O. 04-07-2017 18:16

Amazing product!

| Richard P. 22-05-2017 18:12

Only thing I'd change is I would have gotten a Large (tall) as I have long arms and a short torso

| Eugene F. 22-05-2017 10:38

Not sure I would trust in a downpour but it did great in a light rain. Hard to rate durability as I've only worn it a few times but seems well built. Would recommend

| Carley P. 19-05-2017 13:58

My girlfriend loves her Carhartt that I ordered for her! I made sure to read all the reviews and noted that they can run big in size. Fits her wonderfully! I would recommend this hoodie and other products sold by this company!

| Lawrence C. 15-05-2017 19:56

Very pleased with the purchase, quality and value. Thanks

| AgMan06 14-05-2017 18:55

These seem to run larger than normal sweatshirts, so if u get one go slightly smaller. Other wise i love it, easy on easy off, confortable

| Don M 08-05-2017 09:21

I was excited to purchase this sweatshirt as I heard many good things about it. I purchased in a Carhartt store in local mall (Syracuse, NY) and am very disappointed I was not told that they had tall sizes. As others have stated these run a size larger, I usually wear an XL, but purchased the Large because the XL was much too big for me. However, the sleeves are very short and I would have definitely preferred the option to have longer sleeves that the Tall sizes apparently give.<br /><br />I am also not very impressed with the Rain Defender part of the sweatshirt. It has been raining on and off for the past two weeks where I live and I thought, perfect opportunity to test the Rain Defender sweatshirt. After 5 minutes in a light rain the material started getting soaked, it did not really every bead up the way it has for other users, so I am not sure if this particular item is defective. <br /><br />On a positive note, this is the heaviest sweatshirt I have ever owned and although it did take a bit to get used to I now love it. Very warm and seems extremely durable. I have worn outside to do landscaping work and no tears, holes or anything else. The 4 stars for comfort is due to the getting used to how heavy the sweatshirt is plus the tightness of the waistband and sleeve bands. They just take a bit of getting used to.

| Doug H. 18-04-2017 13:59

Great quality. Great fit. Love it

| dayne s. 17-04-2017 06:41

Feel good!! Great buy!!

| Tim B. 14-04-2017 23:53

It's warm, tight fitting in all the right places and seems well constructed (ask me in a year).

| Kim D. 01-04-2017 18:48

I will say the fit of the bottom of the jacket really runs small and tight and the jacket runs long down over your bottom.. It also said its heavy wt. but it's not, it's more of a thin light material jacket, haven't really been out in a heavy rain to try out the rain resistant part. I like the color is good and the second pocket is a great fit for my cell phone and it does not fall out while I'm bending down and up working. The jacket seems to be sturdy so far material is holding up good.

| Keith 19-03-2017 04:40

I purchased this hoodie in size Large Tall which fits me perfectly, it runs a little loose the way hoodie should run.<br />It is built very well and includes a water repellent finish that works when it rains.<br />The only negative is that Carhartt does cut them the way some sports makers do. They include tapered collar area which allows extra material. This makes for a larger hood to fully cover your head. If you expect to keep all of your head completely dry with this hood, you will not be satisfied

| Mouine Z. 04-03-2017 02:52

its thick and very warm that's what i like about it because i don't like wearing many layers i just wear a t shirt underneath and i don't like all those bulky jackets this is very comfortable and keeps you warm no matter how cold it is

| George K. 03-03-2017 21:38

I use this in combination with the C55 for the coldest weather. The advantage of the zipper is that you can leave it in the coat. Bulletproof combo for the cold. Solid durable construction. Runs a size large as is known, just like the C55.

| Mary Ann S. 02-03-2017 16:48

Good and thick, nice and warm, comfy and cozy. Haven't tested it in the rain. The hood should be made a little larger.

| BRANDON S. 01-03-2017 20:35

Excellent product. Exactly what I was looking for

| Josh D. 24-02-2017 03:54

extremely like the sweatshirt fits very well very waterproof for being a sweatshirt

| Frank C. 08-02-2017 17:10

Hoody Jacket is perfect for the cool morning when a coat is just too heavy to work in.

| GUY Y. 06-02-2017 16:48

Great every day hoodie, 3rd one I've owned, only ever wear the cuffs out.

| Timothy B. 03-02-2017 14:01

This is a great jacket! Repels rain and snow with out getting you wet. This jacket is warmer than I expected and have worn it throughout the winter.

| rjpeck 02-02-2017 18:35

Great winter coat. The rain protection works great. Wish they came in more colors in the 3XLT sizes.

| Tim 09-01-2017 19:09

it like what carhartt has done with this sweatshirt.

| Greg S. 05-01-2017 03:23

Ive wore a similar Carhartt sweatshirt for as long as I can remember. and what happen???<br /><br />Ive had this new one for about 2 weeks now, and I'm growing to really, really,really hate it.<br /><br />First off , right off the bat, who the heck decided , gee lets not make it in Carhartt brown? Really, what does Guatemala not dye Carhartt brown??<br /><br />The zipper sticks every time, guess Ill try to wax it,but shouldn't have to.<br /><br />The hood just doesn't fit right, and draw strings are to short.<br /><br />The little so called security pocket, is beyond useless, its actually annoying , and needs to be cut out. It sits at such an angle, that EVERY single time to put your hands in the pocket, it will get hung up on the stupid thing, beyond annoying, like I said, I plan to cut mine out.<br /><br />And the sleeves are just beyond annoying as well, they are so darn tight, that they actually cut the circulation off to my hands. Ive stretched them out, and they just shrink right back, to skinny, limp wrested size, but I'm sure in a couple of months if I just don't throw this jacket away, that the sleeves will be too loose.<br /> <br />Like I said Ive worn nothing but Carhartt this, and Carhartt that for ever, but I'm really, really super dissapointed with this jacket....

| Sidney S. 05-01-2017 01:47

Great quality. Looks good and is very comfortable and warm. I highly recommend this sweatshirt.

| John B. 01-01-2017 22:03

Great jacket for working in the warehouse. Great for indoors and checking trucks outside. Warm but not bulky. But what is the little pocket for?

| rich c. 30-12-2016 19:47

Fits perfectly...xl tall for 6' 3" 200 lbs with long arms

| Tan L. 30-12-2016 18:26

Overall it's a nice glorified hoodie. It was not what I was expecting as I thought it was one I previously ordered but it was not

| Michael H. 24-12-2016 21:41

I'm 6"1 160lbs and usually wear a X Large in jackets and sweatshirts (long arms and big shoulders). I purchased a large and it fits perfectly. It was a little stiff when received but one wash softened it up with very little shrinkage if any. Wore it on a trip to Syracuse NY in mid December and it was the perfect layering piece under a mid weight jacket, kept me warm and toasty.

| joe m. 21-12-2016 21:06

just spent 3 days at -10 for a high temp and kept me cumfy all day at work

| Dan G. 13-12-2016 04:23

So far pretty good. In an out of the weather on jobs. Rain rolls off an keeps me pretty warm.

| JAS 12-12-2016 23:00

As advertised. It is exactly what I wanted. Love Carhartt products.

| Justin V. 10-12-2016 18:57

Nice sweatshirt, I'd consider it midweight more than heavyweight. I was actually surprised to see water bead off of it since it's a sweatshirt more than a jacket. It's warm enough for cold days and water resistant enough for light rain. I noticed larger drops do soak through somewhat quickly but much better than layering just to go between the truck and a job site. I would definitely recommend it but went 4 stars cause "rain defender" seems like it would handle larger drops better than it does. I also hope it shrinks a little shorter when washed.

| Serena F. 10-12-2016 18:43

Great sweatshirt!

| Joe S. 09-12-2016 18:59

Well only had it for a couple weeks now so very happy wth it so far had it in a little rain the other day water beaded right up like it should but not enuff to see how it runs off yet but very happy wth it so far comfort to wear like nothing even on

| Cary W. 09-12-2016 05:40

Very nice sweat top keeps me warm that's for sure

| Geno G. 06-12-2016 20:55

Awesome product! Needed a Carhartt hooded Zip-up for my job. The weather tends to get brutal up here in Chicago, so I needed some heavy duty gear to get me through the day. This Carhartt came fitted just right for my size. Carhartt is by far the best outfitter for outdoor, rugged, and cold harsh weather conditions.

| Roman M. 06-12-2016 05:12

I love the durability and quality of this hoodie. The Rain Defender technology works great. As for fit, it runs large. I typically wear a Medium in most other clothing brands, but ordered a small and it fits just right. My only qualm with this product is the hood. It's too short! The hood is great around the sides but doesn't make it over my head completely. I have to be looking down in order to avoid getting my head wet when working in the rain. If the hood was just a bit longer and covered the rest of my head, this hoodie would be perfect.

| Richard S. 05-12-2016 18:20

Comfortable,warm,and looks great. Plus my gf likes it too.

| Johnny C. 04-12-2016 20:01

Bought a Large Tall at Marks in Edmonton, Alberta (Canadian chain) (it is extremely difficult to find Large Tall) and so happy I found it, keeps me warm up to 0 degrees c with a t-shirt underneath.

| Roberto A. 07-11-2016 19:06

La sudadera esta super bien<br />calientita <br />y las mangas estan perfectas.<br />estoy muy contento de ber comprado mi sudadera <br /> en carhartt.<br />

| Joey 23-10-2016 02:09

Jacket is great, Was disappointed in the zipper!<br />Hope they improved.

| Martell M. 01-10-2016 19:39

Great quality and comfort is amazing!

| Don J. 29-09-2016 20:35

I just got this and so haven't been able to test it in the field but so far...I'm impressed. It's very thick for a Hoodie. Seems to be very well made. Runs pretty true to size maybe just a little on the big side. I normally wear a 3x but got this in 2x tall. As long as it doesn't shrink too much it'll be a perfect fit. If you plan on wearing some layers under it, I'd go with your normal size first. Always been happy with carthartt products and this Hoodie does not disappoint. I've paid the same price in the past for much less quality. Great job carthartt.

| Craig S. 17-09-2016 21:52

Bought this online and the size guide is inaccurate. The shoulder to waist line length isn't listed and this is very long, comes down to my thighs. <br />I used the true fit guide and bought the suggested size. <br />The hoodie itself is excellent and would last for years.

| Rodrigo Daniel S. 16-09-2016 12:43

I liked the sweatshirt but i was annoyed that the zipper broke appart, i bought it 2 month ago and it broke appart. I thought carhartt did durable clothing but i'm a bit dissapointed with this experience. The other things are okay, it's confortable, warm and runs true to size.

| Chris C. 07-09-2016 01:00

excellent best sweatshirt i have used

| Rocky 01-02-2016 11:05

This is a super jacket it fits true to size, far superior to Under Armour, it's very warm by itself and great for layering, plenty of room for maneuvering while working it fits great, large hood I love it

| Liz15 26-12-2015 01:27

this product is poorly advertised. It states that it a heavyweight, this is not a heavy weight jacket but a light weight jacket. My husband was very disappointed with the jacket and so it was retuned.

| Dre617 18-12-2015 16:13

I am a big guy 6'3" 340lbs. I was worried about the fit, length /width, so I ordered the 3xl tall. I am incredibly satisfied with this product the fit is perfect, plenty of room and great length to cover the plummers crack. Carhartt is the best quality clothing company I have ever come across. The rain defender works very well, I spent a half hour in the rain the day I got it and it kept me warm and dry. It has a great lined hood that doesn't restrict mobility and keeps the melon toasty. I recommend this hoodie to everyone.<br /><br />GREAT JOB CARHARTT!

| Shaun 24-11-2015 21:00

Really happy with the purchase. 5'11" 170lbs. and a small fits me perfectly. Washed it a couple times and it hasn't shrunk which was my biggest fear as there isn't much room left. Sweatshirt is comfortable, warm and does a decent job of shielding the wind. Only complaint is the wrist cuffs are tight around my wrists... like, really tight. The hairs on my arms are sore after wearing the sweatshirt and any attempt to stretch out the cuffs hasn't worked (which shows how durable the elastic is). Next time I purchase, I might consider a medium to see if there is more room in the cuffs.

| Supra3 13-10-2015 14:11

Loved this hoody but was very disappointed when the medium almost reached my knees....returned for small, hope it's still not too big. Don't know why carhartt changed their sizing, use to be perfect fit before.

| BigD 06-03-2015 22:02

You have to get one. Best hoodie I have ever purchased.

| yaya12 12-12-2014 13:42

While I found the sweatshirt a little long for me, it certainly is a very comfortable/warm article of clothing. A few mornings recently I left home while it was raining and one morning in particular raining a lot more than I expected. The sweatshirt kept me dry and warm although my pants were soaked as the rain ran right off me because of the "water proof" properties of the sweatshirt. I have noticed that the zipper gets a little "sticky" when wet.

| lcla1000 11-12-2014 04:54

I have worn this jacket about 15-20 over the past few month in many different types of weather it has worked out great. heavier than the standard sweat jacket and lighter than a coat. kept me dry through the rain. Hood works great. my only complaint is that it faded after three washes. I like black being black not off black/ faded

| Safetyman 10-12-2014 16:57

I normally wear a size large in my outerwear, but this sweatshirt was HUGE. I sent the large back for a medium and it was still almost too big. I should have gone with a size small.

| MANOFSTIHL1 09-12-2014 23:27

I was sent this sweatshirt by Carhartt to test. I work outside seven days a week,and I can say this is one FINE sweatshirt! I like it so much, I purchased four more of the Paxton in different styles! I like the fit, the cuffs stay where they are supposed to, the waist band and the metal zipper. I also like the cell phone pocket which secures my phone quite nicely. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the heavy weight Paxton Sweatshirt to anyone that spends their time outdoors. You won't be disappointed!

| Dave43 06-12-2014 19:08

I would recommend this sweatshirt. It is warm and durable. Keeps you dry. It fits great and wears well.

| local3jim 24-11-2014 20:23

I was sent this sweatshirt to test. I am very happy with this product. It is rain resistant and very warm. The interior is quite soft and comfortable, while the exterior is durable. I highly recommend this sweatshirt as a change of seasons garment or a layer below your heavy winter gear.

| tkbuschs7 20-11-2014 05:56

I was sent this zip up hooded sweatshirt as a test. I can tell you that it is everything that you would want for use in multiple climates.<br />The day I recieved the sweatshirt it was raining outside and i had work to do so I put in on right out of the package. It kept me warm and dry for the enitire 6 plus hours that I was outside. The sweatshirt shed the rain and it never felt as if it was getting wet.<br />As the weather changed to colder temperatures this sweatshirt kept me warm. Now that the temps have been in the single didgets I have just thrown my Carhartt quick duck vest over the top and I stay very warm.<br />This is very comfortable sweatshirt, nice and soft lining.<br />Having a zipper front makes temperature control very nice.<br />I like the small phone pocket on the inside of the larger pocket too, this keeps my phone out of the way of tools and anything else that is in my pocket.<br />I would strongly reccommed this sweatshirt to anyone who is active outdoors or someone that needs it for changing climates. I gave this a 5 out of 5 in every category, I tried to use it in the most extreme areas that I could and it performed very well.

| nailbender 19-11-2014 16:09

I was pretty impressed with this sweatshirt on how comfortable it was. Not only did I wear it but my wife also would quick put it on when she went outside. And being Carhartt, you know that it will stand up no matter what you throw at it. The only thing I would change on it is the cell phone pocket. I have a Droid which doesn't fit but I would suggest putting a pocket on the inside with a Velcro flap. I have other Carhartt clothes and this item is in most of them.

| RRM1973 19-11-2014 03:36

Great heavy weight jacket. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to work outside in not so perfect conditions.

| WalterS 18-11-2014 23:53

Very comfortable, easy to wear alone or underneath a winter jacket. Heavyweight as described. I appreciate the full zipper, as opposed to a pullover.

| DeerHunter 18-11-2014 10:59

This sweatshirt exceeds my expectations in every way! I took it with me to deer camp this season and it performed exactly as expected. The rain defender water repellent finish beaded up the rain and snow with no problems. The security sized pocket was a little small for my cellphone, but I was able to keep my truck keys secure inside the "cellphone pocket"

| Kenworthguy687 17-11-2014 20:29

Got the sweatshirt to try it out. Wore it on many occasions with rain and cold wind. Kept me warm and dry every time. I work as a bus mechanic and wore it to work a few times with no issues. Great sweatshirt.

| ChiTommy 17-11-2014 19:00

This is an absolutely wonderful sweatshirt that exceeded my expectations. It is weird classifying this as a “sweatshirt” as it shares the same characteristics and comfort as one, but it is as close to a full out fall jacket as you can get.<br /><br />Overall Fit<br />I am 6’1” and generally wear a size “L.” When I ordered this sweatshirt, I noticed that it came in an “L-Tall” version, so I opted for that size instead. The length was a bit longer than I thought it would be coming down a few inches past my waist (maybe 4 to 5 inches). I was concerned that it was too long, until I tried it out – having the extra length definitely helped with the cold weather we have been having, as well as when I am wearing something heavy underneath it, like another sweatshirt. Not having tried the non-tall version, I would think that the regular length would have also fit me just fine.<br /><br />Comfort<br />The sweatshirt was way warmer than I anticipated that it would be. The first time I wore it was to rake the leaves out of my yard. It was 38 degrees with light rain and I only had a t-shirt on underneath. Within a few minutes, I was already zipping the sweatshirt down to let in some air. It was very dry and toasty!<br /><br />Build Quality<br />The zipper is very heavy duty and took a few passes to get “broken in” before it worked smoothly. The overall build quality is excellent – no loose threads or issues with any part of it to date. I have also loaded out the pockets several times with nails, nuts, bolts and random trash. I never found any holes in the pockets or stretching/damage to the material.<br /><br />I also washed the sweatshirt several times and the color has not faded at all (bought mine in black). I did make the mistake of throwing it in the machine with some dirty rags and got some nice bleach stains on it now. My fault obviously – guess it gives the sweatshirt some character.<br /><br />I will absolutely be buying another one of these again once I wear this one out – but who knows how long that will be? I anticipate this sweatshirt hanging with my other Carhartt stuff for a long time before it needs a replacement.

| cheif 17-11-2014 17:45

This hoody became one of my favorites after the first couple of days. I like the cell phone pocket inside the pocket. The fit was comfortable and it keeps you dry on those cold rainy days. LOVE IT

| AdirondackMountainMan 17-11-2014 16:55

I've been wearing this hooded sweatshirt for about a month while working in all kinds of fall weather in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. I am really impressed over the fact that I can wear this in the rain without feeling cold and wet. It keeps me warm and dry as it repels the rain. The perfectly designed hood fits easily over my ball caps and even my bulkier knitted hats. I also like the fact that the hood does not fall down over my eyes even when I'm not wearing a hat and the drawstrings are pulled tight. This sweatshirt is also roomy enough to wear over heavy shirts and even a light vest if needed. The pockets are very roomy and strong. The waist and wrist cuffs are also snug and strong. The fabric is rugged and abrasion resistant. The zipper is Carhartt strong. It washes well and retains it's size. When I put this sweatshirt on in the morning I feel confident that I will stay warm and dry all day, even if there's a chance that I'll get caught out in the rain. I'd also like to mention that this heavyweight sweatshirt does not bind at all in the shoulders which is important to me since I have wide shoulders. I'm sure that I will get many years of use out of this rugged and functional sweatshirt.

| jdillabo 17-11-2014 16:26

what a great hoodie. this sweat shirt is very warm. has a great fit. love the front pockets there big and easy to find. the rain defender works very well. water just rolls off the hoodie with no soak through after wearing the the hoodie in the rain for a few hours.

| sidebothamk 17-11-2014 13:31

This is by far the best hoodie sweatshirt that I own. When I am outdoors working in the rain, this hoodie is waterproof and doesn't get my clothes wet. I like the material and it has washed well after over 10 washes. It holds the shape and also is warm in the harsh outdoor weather. I specifically like the material and it looks high quality and also keeps me warm while I am working outside. I will be purchasing more of these hoodies and would highly recommend buying this.

| mrmagic 17-11-2014 10:44

this is a great sweatshirt to wear in the fall and rain days,it will keep you dry ,i orderd the long so it will keep your back from the wind and cold,great to work in the fit gives you alot of room,you can not do better then carhartt

| DonfromPa 16-11-2014 11:07

The first thing you notice about the sweatshirt is the thickness and quality. Immediately you know this has been constructed well and will last and it has. When you put it on, the fit is great. The best thing is the movement you have with your arms, no tightness in the chest area. The length is perfect, with a ribbed bottom, it protects your lower front /back and stays there. The zipper, full length, is strong and operates perfectly. The attached hood is a good size, no need to keep pulling it forward, it stays in place. As for being warm, for the most part this is all I needed to stay warm and I wore it in temps down to 28 degrees while working outside. It does repel some wetness, but not good when it is raining , just a drizzle or when snowing. But then I wouldn't expect it to be, it is not a rain jacket. The sweatshirt has two pockets, the one on the right has a smaller pocket inside the larger, great for keys or small tools. They are roomy, yet designed so the items will not fall out. The bottom of the sleeves is also ribbed and helps keep the arms from sliding down while working with your arms above you. Overall the sweatshirt has a excellent fit, giving you movement where you need it. It is well constructed, is the perfect length and looks good after several washings. I would highly recommend the sweatshirt

| InstrumentTech 16-11-2014 01:22

I received this as a gift and couldn't be happier. It's warm, comfortable and actually repels water after multiple washings. It seems durable and well constructed with a good fit. I would recommend this sweatshirt.

| Simpson84 16-11-2014 00:15

This sweatshirt is very comfortable to wear all day around the farm and working on equipment. I am constantly in and out of the tractors in all types of weather so it's nice not to have to worry if it is raining if I'm going to get wet. This sweatshirt helps shed the rain off me.

| PhillyHank 15-11-2014 22:30

am reviewing the Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip front Sweatshirt. I am using the hoddie in Williston ND. The weather has been in the range of -6 to 20 this week. The hoodie is keeping me warm and toasty along with my base layers. I really like the build quality and seems to be holding up the elements and the work environment. I would recommend the hoodie and I am really happy with it.

| Carpenterguy 15-11-2014 19:11

This sweatshirt is the best article of clothing I wear right now. Because it has not been super cold yet it even doubles as my jacket. This thing is built well. It's thick and durable and even keeps me dry when it's raining outside. This is a great purchase for anyone who wants a excellent quality sweatshirt!

| Razor270 15-11-2014 16:56

When I look at buying work clothes, I look at it as making an investment. You can NOT go wrong with Carhartt for no matter what the category is, and this<br />"Men's Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Zip-Front Sweatshirt" proves my point. Being a trucker and always spending my spare time either out in the woods or outside around the house I put my clothes through harsh environments and even harsh seasonal wet weather. I was a little skeptical when I first seen the "Rain Defender" on the tag, but knowing that it was made from Carhartt, I gave it a try and WAS NOT disappointed! Very comfortable, very warm (Even being in freezers that are set at -10F to -20F for short stints) and beyond my durability requirements. I wear it as an everyday work coat in and out of the truck as well as a chore coat around the house and woods. Caught in rain showers quite often I have grown to love the rain defender so much that it is my rain coat for moderate showers, repels the water right off<br />Large pockets to fit almost anything to get the job done and a large hood to protect even the biggest of heads! It was by far a great investment that will last for a LONG time! Very Hap Happ Happy! Recommend to everyone!

| Bpchleb 15-11-2014 14:53

This sweatshirt has great value in its material and quality. Its thick fabric has kept me warm as winter approached here in MN while allowing plenty of mobility. It appears to be made with the same craftsmanship that I've come to expect from Carhartt, I expect it to last a long time. My only complaint is the way it fits. The waistband is nice and snug but above the waistband, where the pouch pockets are, the sweatshirt is very bulky which creates an unnecessary build up of fabric. If this sweatshirt had more of a tailored fit it would be perfect!

| emedrf 15-11-2014 03:29

This could be best sweatshirt in the world. Not only is a great weight but the rain defender works great! Everyone should buy this sweatshirt!

| philmanchu 14-11-2014 23:47

I have no idea how the heck Carhartt did this. I have a sweat jacket that is water proof. Not resistant mind you. Water proof. I wore this comfy and warm sweat jacket several times in the chilly fall weather in west central Ohio in those all day rains we seem to get.<br /><br />The sweatshirt was wet and I stayed dry. No wet migration. I do not know how, I do not know why. I know this is now my favorite sweatshirt/ sweat jacket ever.

| dwoods19582002 14-11-2014 23:10

This is the HEAVIEST sweatshirt I have used yet. Rain Defender means Rain Defender as you can wear this sweatshirt in the rain WITHOUT getting soaked on the inside and still stay warm. Perfect for the Wisconsin's Falls here and with the early cold snap, so glad I have it. High quality sweatshirt and very warm. Heavy duty zipper. Heavy-duty EVERYTHING.<br />If you are shopping for a gift or for yourself, this IS the one you want.

| ghost 14-11-2014 22:29

Being a Carhartt user for about thirty years, I knew this would be a quality product and I wasn't disappointed. The rain stood up like a waxed car. The temp.s in last two days was in the twenties and sweat shirt is very warm, getting in and out of equipment. I love the space in the right pocket which holds my cell phone. I would purchase this item again.

| macke4s 14-11-2014 22:21

This probably the best hoodie I have ever had or tried on. The first day I got it, it rained like crazy. It was one of those winter rains. I know it said water repellent but it was hard to believe judging from the fabric(not what I'm used to from water repellent clothing) but it performed excellent. I stayed dry and warm. It is not big and bulky but still kept me warm. And the pocket inside the right side pocket fit my phone perfectly and it never fell out. Overall I was very impressed especially with the water repellency.

The rain gear is very comfortable to wear. Keeps in warm and protected. Able to move freely while wearing it and lets me do my job.<br /><br />I had only one issue with the gear. The zip was very difficult to operate and hence gave the rating for Quality only 4 stars. The zip seemed to be too tight to move up and down.

It's great, love it just wish there was an inner pocket at times.

It's nice to have a sweatshirt that is warm, soft, and water resistant so if you get caught in a light shower, you stay dry and don't have to worry about packing rain gear all the time. I got a size L, but it was a little big around the mid section. I know Carhartt usually doesn't make size M tall, but it would be a nice option on all of there products. I'm 6' tall and 170lbs so I need length in the arms and body and sometimes things don't fit perfect. Not Carhartt's fault, maybe I need to have a few more cheeseburgers!!!

This is a great all around sweatshirt, it is not only comfortable, good looking and provides practical warmth in cool weather but also provides the confidence of being able to go out hiking or working and not worrying about the rain. I don't need to take an extra bulky rain coat out with wearing this sweatshirt since it keeps me warm and dry during sudden rain storms. The hood provides a great fit around my Carhartt ball cap giving me extra warmth and rain protection. Has a inside cell pocket to keep my cell phone dry also. Closures around waist, wrists and face provide excellent security while maintaining comfort. The three piece hood provide protection but does not restrict head movement. An all around excellent sweatshirt for everyday use at work or play.

This product redefines comfort in a sweatshirt. My experience to anything in the past with water repellency or waterproof ability was that it was stiff or the exterior shell did not feel fabric-like. Not this. In fact, however the resistance to water is imbedded is amazing because the fabric feels very soft and comfortable to the touch. The other amazing thing is that it continues to breath extremely well almost like a thermostat was in it. When I would begin to feel warm it was almost as though it would begin to breath even better and sweating did not become a problem. Fit around all the way around was comfortable and slightly loose which is how I like it when I am working and wearing a sweatshirt. Overall, a pleasure to wear.

This heavy duty zip hoody is awesome. The zipper is extra strong and the material is sturdy and thick. Two hand warmer pockets are great, the only thing I don't care for is a small interior pocket sewn inside the right hand warmer pocket. I guess its for keys or small items but for me it just gets in the way. Other than that it is a fantastic hoody that I will wear out after many years of heavy use. Good job.

| moondogflip 14-11-2014 15:22

Super comfortable and stays dry and warm in misty conditions would buy one again.

I recieved my Rain Defender Hoodie on the perfect day (Cold and Raining). The body fits great and extends over your rear to keep the wind and cold out. It performed very well in the rain (meaning I didn't get wet). I've washed the hoodie several times with no problems, Fits the same and didn't shrink a bit, no color lose and still repelled the rain.<br />Pockets are deep and with the extra small inner pocket in the right hand pocket, you don't worry about loosing items. Great hoodie for the outdoor worker or for a casual wear jacket. I thought the hood could be a little deeper (to cover your forehead when it's raining).

A quality Carhartt product . Warm and roomy for laying in the fall and winter. The rain defender product is like Rain x for your outerwear. The one thing I didn't like is the security pocket within the hand warmer pocket. It's too small for my phone and I was always catching my fingers in it and losing my keys in it. Otherwise a great product for laying and cooler weather use.

| KevinEllingtonCT 14-11-2014 14:29

Its also of course - durable. I knew at a glance I would use and love the sweatshirt as only someone who depends on clothing to be ready for anything could appreciate. I don't worry about weather changes since I can zip it open and drop the hoodie or zip it shut and put the hoodie up. Its like having an always ready mini shelter while I am out there working. Well worth buying.

I've had this sweatshirt for a couple months now. It is warm and has done a good job of keeping me dry and comfortable. I only rated it 4 stars because the cell phone pocket is to small for a smart phone of any size (which seems to be where cell phones are going for some time now# and it takes a long time to hang dry after getting wet #I have to wash and dry after every wearing if I'm in wet conditions which is something I do not do with my other jackest/sweatshirts).

| A Plus Electrical Installation, LLC 14-11-2014 14:06

Excellent sweatshirt and water repellent . I have been wearing the sweatshirt for over a month, and I am completely satisfied. It kept me dry in the rain while I was working outside

I was sent this Sweat shirt in October 2014 and asked to wear it to work. I have worn it every day that I could without being too warm. This product is outstanding in everyway.<br /><br />It is heavy enough to stand up to brisk New England mornings and repels the normal mist to a slight drizzle that usually greets us here in the Northeast at this time of year.<br /><br />It pairs nicely with my Carhartt duck vest when the temperature drops and allows for great freedom of movement, so that I was able to have full reach and be able to accomplish my tasks while working outside at my trade.<br /><br />The change pocket inside the right front pocket is nice, but this sweat shirt would be well served by having either a hidden pocket up on the chest, or an inside pocket or two for wallet, cell phone, pencils, etc.<br /><br />All in all I would highly recommend this sweat shirt to tradesmen and civilians alike.

I do not nor have I ever really cared for the full zipper front style sweatshirt. Other than that this sweatshirt was awesome.

| Waterboy79 14-11-2014 02:07

Very comfortable and Durable. The fit is a little big but leaves room for layering during colder months. I wore the sweatshirt in light to medium rain and it repelled the water without soaking through.

| CarharttDADDY 14-11-2014 00:19

Having worn this MEN'S PAXTON HEAVYWEIGHT HOODED ZIP-FRONT SWEATSHIRT for the past 30 days I am very happy to report my satisfaction with this garment. Fall rain and wind are no match to the warmth and dryness provided....and when the sun would make itself known on the job-site the Paxton wasn't too heavy or hot either. I am also VERY pleased with the length. Finally a durable and versatile hoodie that is cut for a 6'8" man. Keep up the great work Carhartt and you will always find me wearing your gear and telling my crew(s) how much value your clothing line provides!

Great work shirt

| MNBud 13-11-2014 21:53

I was impressed with this sweatshirt in the first couple of days after receiving it. With cold October rain the only place that got wet was around the collar because I didn't have the hood up. I stayed dry and comfortable all day everyday.

| Cruzer 13-11-2014 21:35

It was a rainy week in October when I received my Rain Defender jacket. This jacket out performed anything I have ever worn shy of a rain coat. I will add all of the Rain Defender gear to my work clothes. Carhartt you hit a grand slam with this one!!<br />Thank You!

| MLNWood 13-11-2014 21:18

It fits like the proverbial glove, repels water as promised, is soft and comfortable, yet rugged and durable. It is the warmest hooded sweatshirt I have ever owned. Thinking about buying more in a variety of colors. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Loose Fit means there is plenty of room in the front for your stomach. Even if you don't have a stomach, it would appear so, since the zipper is stiff. <br />This product has quite a bit of polyester in it.

I ordered 14 of these sweaters to personalize them for my coworkers and myself. Some of us never owned a carhartt, and we all loved these comfortable and cozy sweaters!!!! They are awesome! Perfect for Chicago weather, and really does hold up against the rain! <br />I would definitely try more Carhartt products in the future!
