Extreme cold weather calls for extreme winter wear and Carhartt Extremes Arctic Coat is the choice for men who like to stay warm while working outdoors on the job in the coldest conditions. The Carhartt C55 is water-repellent and nylon-quilted with an arctic weight polyester insulation. Plus, the Rib-knit storm cuffs and an inside elastic waist draw cord are always there for you to keep the wind and cold out. And there are four pockets (two chest pockets and two inside pockets) to store your keys and your wallet, along with two large front pockets to shove your hands in when your gloves aren’t enough. Carhartt means quality and with the C55 coat, there’s excellent stitching and well designed, solid material, an over-sized zipper that’s tough and an ultra comfortable inner quilting. This durable coat will last you a lifetime and is a great buy—many men swear by this coat and it’s the only cold-weather coat in their closet. It’s also important to note that this arctic coat runs a little big, which is great when you want to layer your clothing and sport some Carhartt Insulated Coveralls to stay even warmer. You can also order the Carhartt Extremes Hood/Arctic-Quilt Lined if you want your head to stay as warm as your body. Available only in black in a range of sizes from small to 3X, every man can and should have a coat like this.
Whether you work outside all day long, running to work or enjoying a football game at the stadium, you want to stay dry in a downpour. And if you’re thinking about wearing some other waterproof breathable jacket in the cold, forget about it. The Carhartt J162 has all the quality that you’ve come to expect from Carhartt jackets, and the waterproof breathable membrane, interior stretch storm cuffs, polyester mesh lining in the body and nylon taffeta lining in sleeves and hood will keep you dry—it’s also comfortable and lightweight enough to wear in good weather. In extreme cold weather, you can put a fleece underneath for extra warm. You will find many times of year you can wear this versatile jacket. The large hand pockets are great for keeping your hands warm or holding your keys and wallet and the left chest pocket and two interior pockets are great for stashing things, as well. The three-piece snap-on hood is removable, so you can sport your jacket when it’s not as cold and you don’t need the extra bulk or warmth. Available in black and bluestone (and evergreen if you order in-store) and a wide range of sizes from small to 3X, this coat is not only an understated classic, but it will keep you dry and warm for many years to come.
