The Carhartt Sandstone Detroit Jacket has a tough exterior, but it's a big softie inside.

Tough and functional
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Precisely what you'd expect from a Carhartt. 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. The only thing is, 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. When I got it, 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 that accent which is shown on the website. More practically, collar stains will stand out more.
Rugged but Comfy
Had this one for 2 years, still looks new. Stops the wind, but vents nicely. No break-in required, very soft for such a tough material. I normally take a Medium, but have a broad chest; the Large hits me at the waist and has enough chest room, which is perfect. Even though the arms are still a tad long after going up a size, this still isn't a problem for me. Zippered inside and breast pockets are a real plus, plus the colors are great. what's not to love?
I was so excited to get this for my boyfriend, but it's way short... He's a skinny guy so I got him a medium, and it fits fine in the arms and chest, but it's short and looks kinda goofy.
Despite that, it's a very nice jacket. Durable and warm and it's a nice color (the dark brown). I wish he had not thrown out the receipt because we would have exchanged it for a large...
Not for me
Good material but the arms were way to long and the chest way to short, it looked terrible on me - maybe a better fit for a cowboy is all I could picture. I cannot speak to it's warmth as I sent it back immediately. I haven't given up on Carhartt just yet though...
Carhattt Sandstone Jacket
I love this jacket. I have had numerous compliments from people on the street on how nice the jacket looked. The zipper is a little rough going up and down. The fit is excellent.

nice, but not what expected
I bought 3 of these jackets for my brothers for Christmas, but when they arrived, they looked way to short for them, so i returned them and bought different ones, they did the return so quick I was really Surprised so i bought three different jackets and they are great, they'll love them, thanks!
Love the jacket!
A jacket to last a lifetime of abuse
I have been a Carhartt user for years and love the way this thing wears under any condition. It is my number one work jacket, and my number one play jacket for many uses. I love the cut (helps me look like I have a waist). The pockets do feel a little high. But overall, an awesome jacket.

How do the arms fit on this jacke? (long or short?). I'm thin but have long arms(34 -35) ... Usually a Medium works best for me around chest and waist, but the arms are usually too short. Then when using a Large size, the arms fit but the chest & waist are too large.
I have the medium and my arms are average length,(31'') and the sleeves are a little long for me. Hope this helps
