You're undoubtedly familiar with Carhartt, the workwear brand that doubles as a beloved streetwear brand for the skaters and artists who roll their own cigarettes on park benches all across Lower Manhattan. Scratch the latter part, for now, and focus on the former; Carhartt has made a name for itself for making high-quality, durable, affordable workwear that serves as some of the best winter gear out there.
If you don't have a Carhartt jacket for winter, you definitely need one. Casual in appearance, these are easy, protective styles that you can layer with, style for work (whether your work finds you outdoors or indoors, on a building site or at a desk), or wear solo. Depending on what you do, where you live, and what you need this jacket for, you should look for different criteria. Some of these styles are hoodless, and they're great for cold—but not wet—winter days, and seamless transitions between indoors and outdoors. Some of these styles are water repellent, which is a must if you work outside or live in a rainy environment; others come with insulation and flexible elbows that are perfect for hands-on work and being active.
Wait no more, and don't worry about the cold; the best Carhartt winter jackets below have you covered.
If you want a warm, durable jacket that even the coldest of winter days can't pierce, the Bartlett is for you. Not only is it lined with sherpa, for extra warmth and insulation, but it also has a combo snap button and zip front, an adjustable hood, triple-stitched seams and pockets to hold all your essentials.
Loose Fit Duck Insulated Flannel-Lined Active Jacket
This is one of Carhartt's more common styles, and if you've seen it out and about, now's the time to get one for yourself. With the appearance of a casual zip hoodie but bells and whistles that go above and beyond—including roomy pockets on the interior and exterior, a full front zip, an adjustable hood, and flannel lining—this water-repellent style is a great everyday staple.
Duck Detroit Jacket
The Duck Detroit Jacket is one of my personal favorite Carhartt styles. It looks chic and cool (ask any fashion guy who consistently pairs this with pleated pants and loafers), it's not too heavy, but not too light, and the corduroy collar with buttons for an optional hood sets it apart from other brands' versions.
Rain Defender Relaxed Fit Heavyweight Jacket
Rainy day? Fear not. This jacket is equipped with water repellent, windproof technology to keep you dry and warm. It has two hand-warmer pockets in the front, along with a three-piece lined hood with drawcord closure for maximum protection.
Active Jacket J130
If you have an active lifestyle and need a jacket that'll keep you warm without cooking you alive inside, this is the one for you. Lightweight yet warm, this flexible, durable jacket moves with you, with taffeta lining that doesn't feel heavy.
Yukon Extremes Full Swing Coat
This is one of Carhartt's pricier styles, but with good reason. Completely windproof and water repellent, this style has Thinsulate insulation and Scotchlite reflective taping to keep you warm, dry, and visible, even in the most dire of conditions.
Loose Fit Midweight Rain Jacket
This is another great rainy day option, thanks to its water repellent fabric and hood with a visor. The elasticated cuffs keep the warm in and the cold out, and thanks to its lightweight material, you can layer this atop a sweater or sweatshirt or under a longer topcoat and not feel too hot.
