Disappointing
The jacket itself has enough going for it to warrant a decent review, but it's got more flaws than I expected. Firstly, the sleeves are larger than you'd expect. So much so that you tend to look a little ridiculous with your arms hanging by your sides as you appear to have comically sized biceps. The zipper is a cheap metal and you can actually feel the lack of quality; a huge difference from Carhartt's usual heavy duty zippers.

The material is stiff, but that's to be expected. It will rub your wrists uncomfortably. Furthermore, it's by no means a winter jacket. Blanket lining or not, it's thin and more suited towards a spring or fall jacket. The length is a huge issue. The pictures show that the jacket doesn't exactly hang low, but putting one on is a different story. If you wear a tool belt, this jacket is amazing. If you don't, be prepared to keep your hands in the awkwardly high pockets to keep it from riding up.

Overall, a bit of a let down. If Carhartt threw on an extra inch or two of length and actually put ANY insulation in the sleeves, it might be a nice jacket. As it stands, it seems more like the test versions of a jacket before it's perfected and sold. My opinion: unless you have your heart set on this jacket, choose another.

Ok but could be better
This jacket is Ok but I get the feeling that in the past the quality was way better. The worst thing is that they have used cheep lining. Which is sort of a man made wool lining. it is itchy and feels crappy and also in a yuck brown plaid sort of color. My second gripe is that it has a crappy zipper tag. Sort of pressed metal alloy.

The overall fit is good. A large fits like an XL of course.
It is nice that they have been making these jackets in a range of colors but now the are down to only 3 colors.

If they made them in USA again probably would be way better.

Disappointed Customer
I purchased this blanket lined jacket to replace the old, durable one I bought 10 years ago and wore out. What a disappointment. Poor quality. Thinner fabric. Poor zipper quality. New pocket front pocket design looks ridiculous. I will not be purchasing from Carhartt again!I guess they're no longer made in the USA. Too bad!

Perfect for Rodeos
Bought this jacket in 2014 as the 125th anniversary edition to wear when I'm working with and around my livestock. Fit and finish are as expected with the Carhartt name. This jacket always receive compliments even after a year of hard use. Couldn't ask for a better product.

I have been extremely happy with the jacket. It’s a tough jacket that’ll stand up to hard work, but it has an iconic style to it that will look great wherever you wear it. It runs a bit roomy, but that’s okay if you are actually working outside in this jacket. It also allows you to wear a sweatshirt or fleece under it for extra warmth without feeling too restricted. I don’t want to recommend this jacket because I don’t want everyone else to look as good as me!

TERRIBLE FIT
Carhartt used to be my go to but this jacket is getting donated after this season. This thing ends an inch short of my hips and the sleeves are HUGE. I could fit another jacket under this ones sleeves. Looks ridiculous and less warm than previous ones I've owned. Way to outsource and ruin your product. Never buying from Carhartt again.

Great mid-weight jacket!
This is a perfect jacket for working outside during Fall and Spring seasons. This is not a winter jacket as it is a bit on the light side, unless you layer underneath. A comment was that the pockets were useless, however, this is a work jacket that allows lots of movement so it is cut a little on the short side which accommodates a tool belt very easily. I often work outside building shelves, re-finishing furniture, pick up leaves, etc... and this jacket allows you to move freely, consequently the pockets are set high up on the body (I hardly use them). Its a little on the stiff side (especially the collar) and it took 3-4 hot washes before the fabric became comfortable but since then, it is my go to jacket for working outside. The fabric is sturdy, resists tearing, and stops mild to moderate wind gusts very well.

Great Rugged Jacket
I bought this jacket 2 years ago in the fall when I outgrew my Duck Active Jacket. I bought it in Carhartt brown and it looks great! I get compliments on it all the time because of it's timeless rugged looks. I usually wear this jacket from October to mid December, and then from mid Febuary to the end of March in northern Connecticut so it is plenty warm. I wash this jacket once a year so that I can show off all my hard work when I wear it.

could be a little longer
I live in Alaska I where substance over style is not just a saying but how you survive and only what is really needed is needed that being said this coat works hard when I work hard and it seems sturdy. I just wish they would have made it a inch or two longer for when I am laying on my back in the snow turning wrenches on my truck. or laying on my back on a concrete slab that has been cooled to 0 degrees installing plumbing in a subfloor. just a couple more inches would have been real nice. with that said I layer a Flannel under it and a tshirt and that kinda solves the problem.

Pleasant Surprise!
I work for a company up in the Pacific North West. I just moved here from Los Angeles CA (I've never needed a REAL jacket or a coat). I've been wanting a good jacket for the coming winter and my new employer got me one of these with my name on it.

I was shocked at how good the quality is. It does run above the belt line, but I can get used to that. I figure that's the style. And everyone I told about this jacket was impressed that its a Carhartt. So, your reputation precedes you. This will help in the winter when I'm visiting and working in yards.

It feels a little stiff, but only in that I'll have to break it in, and I've never owned anything of quality that didn't need breaking in.

Thanks for making such a nice jacket!

Rare miss from Carhartt
I bought a tan Sandstone Detriot Jacket in 2004. It served me well until it was finally time to replace it. For reasons I can’t understand they no longer make the tan color in this jacket so I went with the blue. The regular size sits well above my belt line so I went with the tall but it was still way too short in the back. Took it back to the carhartt store in Spokane and the sales guy was not very helpful. Refused to return in it the store and said my only option was to send it back myself. Rare miss from what is usually a great brand. Disappointed to say the least. Hope this doesn’t become a trend.

This is a good jacket that doesn't get in your way. It's not bulky like others that may have excess material that could slow you down in an active, physical job. It's not the warmest jacket they offer, but if you're using it for its intended purpose and actively working, then you will not be cold. As you should be able to see, it is cut short. So if you don't want it at just belt level, get a tall size. I think that's also in the design of keeping it a low profile jacket that's not in your way for active work. So if you use this for its intended purpose it is ideal. If you try to use it for a sedentary job with low activity, you may get cold in it.

Best jacket ever!
I've had 2 of these jackets, their the best of their type I've ever owned. I bought one for all the guys on my crew and every one have them has told me it's a favorite.
The only beef I have is that Carhartt has discontinued the PETROL blue color they used to offer. When I asked them about this, all I got was a boilerplate response that they were sorry they could not meet my expectations at this time.
Carhartt work clothes are the best I've used, and I've been beating them in harsh, outdoor conditions for over 20 years.
But I wish they would offer the color choices they used to.

Really good quality for the money
My 17 year old daughter pick this one out off the rack for me. I usually get a large because I have long arms and the loose fit USED TO be in. But my daughter said it looked 'lit' so I bought it in medium. It's a little bit more snug than most of my older coats and jackets but I like the look and the sleeves are as long as most of my 'large' stuff.

Good jacket
I like the tall version because it is just a little bit longer. The sleeves are a smidge bit longer too almost too long but they have room to add another layer or two. Also if it helps, a large tall is almost the same size as the stiff duck “made in america” Detroit jacket large regular.I got the gravel and it looks almost blue. I wish they had the moss color in stock. It is a good jacket.

Way too short, even for a Tall Length purchase
I have bought about 10-12 pieces of Carhartt jackets, bibs, pants, and khakis. Never had any issues with ordering the Tall sizes. The sizing on this is way off. It is almost like a belly jacket on me. This sizing length has to be a mistake. I had to return this and buy another brand.

We had to exchange it. It was too small. My son who is 6' 224lbs already has a Carhartt jacket that is a large but the cut on the bottom is longer, but the Detroit jacket is shorter and he needed it in a XLarge. We should be getting it tomorrow. Otherwise the larger size I'm sure will fit great

Tough Jacket
Great work jacket. The quality is slightly less now that it's made in Mexico vs USA, but still very good compared to competition. My last jacket made it 12 years and I just ordered a new one. If you are over 6' make sure to get the tall sizing. I ordered regular the first go around and it was 2" shy of covering my belt - very short compared to how they sized 10-15 years ago. Overall great jacket.

Just what the doctor ordered!
This jacket was perfect for me. I had ordered one of the hooded Sherpa winter jackets last year and liked it so much, I went for this one for spring and fall. I love the style and fit. It replaces an LL Bean jacket that although was nice, was too long for my build. I like waste-cut jackets and this one hit the mark!

I am very satisfied with this Jacket and is exactly what I expected with the right fit for me. I had gotten a similar jacket as a gift a few years back and even though it's had a lot of use I am still holding on to it. So this new one is on my top list and I hope to enjoy it for many more years to come. Thanks Carhartt! Ron

Rugged. More comfortable than DUCK, the sandstone has a broken-in feeling and movement without having to show some wear before becoming a second-skin (compared to DUCK). Mechanic, carpenter, now rural physician - the coat has been appropriate for all careers.

Classy and rugged!
Girlfriends/ wives/ whatever: if your looking for a jacket that LOOKS GOOD and can be dressed up but still has the carhartt feel and look- here it is. LOVE IT AND FITS MY BOYFRIEND PERFECTLY. It's important to note: the waist is small and the shoulder/ arm area is bigger. If you don't have a small waist (if you've got a bit extra there) you won't be able to close it. (Obviously you can get a bigger size, but the shoulders may be too big). It's an amazing jacket. Five stars baby!

Best workman's jacket on the market!
Great jacket for working, I'm a mechanic and I have great movement in this doesn't bunch in the stomach when bent over and has no elastic wrist pieces that light up when welding. I literally was my jacket on warm days with a power washer and treat it with camp dry and sheds water great. It's not to warm for the fall and is perfect with a flanel under it in the winter.

Rugged and comfortable
This is a great, well constructed, and tough mid-weight jacket. The blanket lining is comfortable and insulation level is perfect for autumn and spring. I especially like the short, waist length. It doesn't get in the way when getting in and out of a vehicle or when horseback riding. I only gave it 2 stars on appearance because I ordered the cotton wood color and it isn't as shown in the picture. While the body color is accurate from the picture, the collar and zipper on the chest pocket are not black, which is misleading. When it arrived, I noticed the collar and pocket zipper are only slightly darker than the body with no sharp contrast. It maybe a small point but in my opinion, it doesn't look as good without the accent which is shown on the website. On a practical note, collar stains will stand out more.

Awesom Jacket.
I bought this jacket bak in 2008. I apsolutley love it. I dont own anything but my two carhartts. I like this one cause I have the ability to do anything I want in it and I know it will hold up. Warm and comfortable too. Carhartt is mostly all I wear from head to toe. Im an electrician so its great for those rough jobs and gives me flexibilty even with my tool belt on. I will be buying another one when its time. Thanks carhartt

Awesome Jacket
My dad gave me this jacket over a year ago and it still looks as if it could have come from the store. The only difference is that this one is broken in. The jacket is incredibly warm even in the winter. The blanket lining is much warmer than you would think. The fit is great and the four pockets are really handy. This is a great product.

Perfect
I have never owned Carhartt until this fall and have since gotten a little Carhartt "drunk". The Detroit jacket is my third Carhartt and it is just perfect. The fit is trim and looks great. Just thick enought to chase away the chill. You can work in it or wear it on a night out, it is at home either place.

Great Jacket for One Wearing a Tool Belt
I needed a new jacket to deal with the cold and wet San Francisco winter, but I wanted something that can be worn over my tool belt with suspenders. The Detroit series jacket is perfect for this. I went with the J97 over the J01 because a local retailer had my size in stock. The J97 is comfortable from the start with little need for break-in.

The jacket fits snugly enough to allow good movement and not let the material get in the way when working. The blanket lining is nice and warm when I wear a short-sleeve shirt with temperatures in the 40s. I think lower temperatures would be fine with a long-sleeve flannel and/or a thermal.

The best part about the jacket is that the base rests just on top of my tool belt and bags and does not ride up due to being too long. I wear framer bags with a belt tape measure holster on the right side, and the jacket doesn't get in the way of me quickly getting to the tape.

I only have two complaints: The inside face of the collar is made of the same canvas material as the body, and when I wore the collar down, it caused a rash on my neck for about four weeks until the cloth was well broken in (with three washes). I got around the irritation by wearing the collar up. When worn up, the collar does a good job of covering the neck area, and the zipper runs up tight to the neck. The other complaint is that the jacket is not waterproof, but I knew this when buying it. The material is thick enough to absorb a good amount of water before soaking through.

I cannot comment on the longtime durability due to not having worn the jacket for more than two months, but it is holding up well from being on me forty hours a week for two months working construction outside.

This is not a jacket for someone looking to wear it out on the town with an un-tucked t-shirt. The body is very short to fit over a tool belt, and an un-tucked t-shirt sticks out enough to look ridiculous in a non-job-site setting. I couldn't be happier with the jacket as a workman's jacket.

Favorite Jacket
I've owned detroit jackets for years now and I have 4 different colors. They are too good looking to be used hard until they get a little worn - Ha! They are light enough to be used year round and with a flannel or wool shirt are great for all but very cold days. I like the old collars though they were color coordinated and made the jacket even sharper. Great jacket never the less. Thanks Carhartt!

Nice Jacket
i Love the look to this jacket. it is relatively warm and good in the wind. my only complaint is that the sleeves seem a bit baggy and im not a scrawny guy. it may be because im a smaller guy with big shoulders that the fit is a little off but i love it and wear it everywhere. asking for another for christmas!

Classy looking jacket
This jacket is a very nice looking jacket, I use mine for going out. Fit is fantastic and comfort is great. I like the jackets that ride right at the waistline. This is a great jacket for chilly days, not really good for very cold weather. My complaint is the zipper is flimsy and hard to open at times. The sleeves are a bit long, I wear mine rolled up. But this is my second favorite jacket I own, I plan on buying more of this same jacket in other colors.

First Carhartt
I had wanted a Carhartt jacket for a while now but never got around to getting one...until just after Christmas.

Armed with gift cards I descended on the local Carhartt retailer with no particular jacket in mind until I saw the J97.

We burn wood and coal. I've needed a jacket for a while now that would be light weight, warm, durable, have wind breaking capabilities, and have good range of motion, to give me mobility. I need to lug, split and stack wood, and carry 50 lb.bags of coal on my shoulders without having a jacket fall apart, get ripped, or become irretrievably soiled.

The J97 does the job for me. When it gets soiled I simply throw it in the wash, and it cleans up great. In fact I wear this jacket when I'm out and about. My wife has commented that she likes the way it looks on me.

The only comment I have that would be considered remotely critical is actually more of an observation. When these jackets are new they are STIFF. They break in quickly but they need to washed a couple of times before they "loosen up".

Because of it's obvious durability and construction I'm looking forward to having this jacket for years of use. In fact I just purchased my second Carhartt jacket (J140) and I expect the same thing from it.

Great Field Jacket
I received one for a gift several years ago, & it is the sturdiest outdoor jacket I own. I've used it while chopping down trees & clearing away the debri & it didn't even affect this garment. I carried away logs without damaging the sleeves, & I believe the canvas material definitely protects the arms/body from the sharp branches. When I was done, I just brushed it off. I think the coat was machined washed once or twice..still fits well!

My First Carhartt
I just took delivery on my first Carhartt jacket. When I took it out of the package and put it on I felt like I had owned it for a long, long time; it fit so well and felt so comfortable. I am very pleased with the quality of the materials and workmanship of this jacket. The duck is very heavy and there's a warm blanket lining. It keeps me warm without getting too hot. The zippers are nice an heavy so I'm sure they will last a long time. I also love the look of the jacket. It is casual but I will certainly wear it everywhere.

best on the desert
Purchased this jacket to wear to and from work, that was a mistake. I wear it everywhere, taking the kids to school, running errands, standing on the lacrosse sidelines, camping, ect. What a nice coat just the right amount of insulation to keep the cold out without overheating you as the sun drops and the night settles in.

The best part of this jacket for me is the sleeve length. Being long armed it's hard for me to find clothes to give me proper coverage. Thanx Carhartt.

A great jacket
I own a number of Carhartt coats, and every one is great. This one is no exception. It looks great, feels great and is tough as nails. I particularly like the chest pocket for my phone...it keeps me from having to dig around inside the coat when it's cold. Thanks, Carhartt.

Nice looking jacket ruined by very odd dimensions
This jacket is downright comical. It must be made only for purposes of wearing a massive tool belt because if I try to wear it casually, it looks very odd. My girlfriend looks dumbfounded every time I attempt to wear it out. I'm 5'8 200 lbs and a medium had the perfect size and length in the arms, the chest was perfect as well...but the length of the jacket ruins everything...it's so high it barely clears my belly button. So I then ordered a large thinking the medium was the incorrect size, boy was I wrong again..., the length of the large was just as short as the medium, except I was swimming in the arms and chest. this jacket just doesn't make any sense. Please make it at least 1 or 2 inches longer because everybody is saying the same thing.

I just received this jacket. The fit is fine. The blanket lining is very thin compared to other blanket lined Carhartts I have had in the past. I was very disappointed that it is not advertised as imported. That would have been the deal breaker prior to purchasing. It should be advertised as a Mexico City Jacket not Detroit. At least Carhartt still makes one thing here, our money.

My husband has had several of these coats and it's usually his go to, he likes the shorter length even with the tall lrg since he has long torso, this is his 2nd dark grey with black collar which is great color , this one has collar same material as jacket where lady one had corduroy collar which split at fold completely open and is why we had to replace so hoping this won't be problem with this one

same good quality but a new inconvenience
Same great quality I have come to expect from Carhartt. I've been wearing this style of jacket for 20 years or more. However, there seems to have been some kind of design or manufacturing change, as the waistband hem now interferes with unzipping the jacket. I don't seem to have any problem zipping it up, but every time I unzip, I have to maneuver the zipper past the hem on both sides or the zipper hangs up.

detroit jacket, excellent quality!
nice jacket, very durable materials used, very good quality, seams are sewn straight, heavy duty zipper that won't break, thick material used on outside of coat. I run heavy equipment, so i'm in the outdoors all day and carhartt products are what I strickly use to keep warm, carhartt products hold up better than any other brands I've tried.

Another Great Carhartt Jacket
All we can say is this is the nicest, most durable jacket out there. Obivoulsy, we are not the only ones who think so; my husbands last one was stolen out of his work truck. It was just about five years old and still going strong, so strong that I purchased this one to repalce it. Our son liked it so much we bought him the same one in gray for Christmas.
