        I got this jacket in the winter of 2002 when i was living in Philadelphia. This jacket is the best. You can wear it with just a t-shirt and long sleeve shirt, and stay comfortably warm. The two inside pockets are great for a large bi-fold wallet on one side, and mail, tri-folded papers, and pens on the other. The large outer pockets are bottomless (9"wide by 12" tall with a cutout opening, with no closure- but i've never had anything fall out) you can fit a folded in half sheet of paper, gloves, earmuffs or knit hat and anything else you can think of. Even though the outer pockets aren't insulated, they can block the wind on a cold day and still keep your bare hands warm. The other day i lost my car keys in there with my gloves and other stuff, and didnt even hear them jingling around. There are 2 smaller outer pockets (5"x5") on top of the larger ones good for small pieces of paper or an ID and credit card. Carhartt's level of care is unbeatable. Four years after owning it i had a problem with the zipper. I emailed Carhartt, they emailed me a postage paid UPS label, and I dropped it off at a local ship center. They replaced the zipper and shipped it back to me within 7 business days. Nine years later and still going strong. The cordoroy collar has faded a little with my washings, but the cordura hasn't faded any.(cold wash and hang dry). My only regret is not researching further and buying a tall size (the store where purchased only carried regular sizes). At 6'3", 180 lbs, the Large size I purchased would be better in Tall with a little extra length in the sleeves.

        The coat keeps me warm, the fabric can take abuse, the pockets are large and the hood keeps me warm. The Velcro of the hood simplifies securing the hood for warmth. I spend a lot of time out in the cold. I bought the coat in New York 1/2/2008. I hope Carhartt has improved it. Last year, 2009 the cord that goes around the waste to keep the cold out, tore apart. My work around was to thread a new nylon cord into the cord passage. I realized the hard nylon could damage the fabric so I used the plastic locking mechanisms on the cord to hold the waist in a tight position. I wish i had thought to do that in the first place. Today 12/11/2010 the puller on the zip came off. I was able to replace it with a heavy duty paper clip which I bound in tape. I hope there are no more surprises. I still like the product because the outer fabric is so very durable. I don't expect I could find better even at a much higher price.

        Best winter coat for Great Lakes sailors!

        By Sailor

        from The Great Lakes

        Comments about Carhartt Extremes Coat/Arctic Quilt-Lined (Style #C55):

        The Carhartt Arctic outwear is the only thing that allows me to be warm during the harsh Great lakes winters while working in freezing temperatures and water spraying and freezing to the coat. I have had these coats covered in ice and or soaking wet on the outside while I stayed warm on the inside. I layer with tight knit polyester as a base layer then the Carhartt Arctic as an outer layer and I can handle any weather down to -30 degrees with wind. These coats also last over 8 years before repetitive working conditions finally wear through the heavy outer fabric and I still remain warm even with holes in the outer layers of the sleeves. The holes are from my abuse to the clothing not a manufacturing defect. These coats are bomb proof and a must for anyone facing cold harsh winters. I'm also a native Floridian meaning that I get cold when the weather drops below 70 degrees and this clothing allows me so survive the winters in warmth. Just dress with good thermals and and get the Arctic bibs to cover your lower half so you stay warm when it drops below 20 degrees.

        Great winter work jacket!

        By CAAS

        from Philadelphia PA

        Comments about Carhartt Extremes Coat/Arctic Quilt-Lined (Style #C55):

        I waited three weeks after I got my Carhartt arctic quilted lined jacket and hood to write this review because I really put it to some tests. I work nightshift as a mechanic for a regional railroad company so I’m outdoors in all kinds of weather. When I got the jacket I was kind of skeptic because it is thin and fairly light weight. On a 3 degree snowy windy night this jacket kept me so warm with just a long sleeve shirt underneath. It protects against the biting wind too. The jacket is really well designed. The zippers are easy to use with gloves on. It’s also easy to put things in the pockets with gloves on. Just real well designed. The optional hood is great too. With the hood up and the Velcro flap fastened it seals up around your face so cold air or snow cant get in. The jackets material is very durable and water resistant. Defiantly won’t tear easily. All and all it’s a super work jacket!


        Michigan Winter Survival Coat

        By TomH

        from Detroit, MI

        Comments about Carhartt Extremes Coat/Arctic Quilt-Lined (Style #C55):

        I was looking for something to get me through the brutal winters in Michigan, and I had been advised to look at the "Extremes" line which includes the "Arctic" lining. The coat literally seals you in from the elements, and no matter how hard the wind blows, you won't feel it. I'll be buying the hood for it, as my previous Carhartt had one, and you cannot beat the convenience of the high quality hoods. The coat features cuffs that are recessed from an outer protective cordura layer that provides extra protection up to where your hand begins to come out. If used with proper gloves, this almost guarauntees that your hands will stay warm and free of moisture. Wonderful product!


        Best Purchase Ever!

        from Kentucky

        Comments about Carhartt Extremes Coat/Arctic Quilt-Lined (Style #C55):

        I'm always cold. I've never owned a coat that was warm enough that I would leave the house in winter when it wasn't mandatory. I bought this coat a couple years ago, and I now go walking with my husband, even in the coldest weather. It's strange feeling the bitter cold on my legs and face, and almost sweating under my coat. It's durable, has plenty of large pockets- my ereader fits in one just fine! I got the optional hood, too. I tell everyone I can, if they want to be warm in winter, they NEED this coat!

          • A:

            My husband works construction and often comes home covered in grease or coal dust. I've machine washed his Carhartt coat many many times. The color fades after a while but the coat is still going strong.

          • A:

            It says that you can machine wash it on cold with other colors and tumble or drip dry, no heat. However, I recently had bed bugs and had to dry everything on high heat. It survived but feels a little smaller than before. Still works grea though.
