Carhartt is one of those brands that you'll continue to wear your whole life once you have a couple of items.
When it comes to durability, comfort, and functionality Carhartt is the best brand out there.
This vest adds a lot of warmth to your core whether you are sitting around the campfire, working outside, or you are just a little chilly. You never have to worry about tearing this vest or getting it a little dirty. The outer pockets are nice and big so you can fit your hands even with work gloves on, and the inner pockets velcro shut so you don't have to worry about your phone or wallet falling out when you are moving around working.
If you know Carhartt then you probably love Carhartt. This vest is no exception.
Gotta love Carhartt
I never understood what was up with winter vest, I get it now. Would definitely recommend.
style and warmth
i work early morning and this is perfect the the way to work and while I'm working
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Large
I bought this vest after I made the stupid mistake of wearing an expensive Pertex and Primaloft jacket next to a fire pit. I wore it tonight and noticed several embers hit it and roll right off. I have a 44" chest and normally wear XL t-shirts, but I ordered the large fits perfectly. So, if you like to sit close to the fire but don't want to melt your expensive gear, go with this vest and a flannel under a Carhartt jacket, and save the technical stuff for backpacking and climbing.

Really soft, nice vest. Gift for my dad for Xmas. He loves it for outdoor woodworking through the winter.
