Carhartt’s Storm Defender Loose Fit Midweight Utility Jacket Outdoes Rain

When it comes to workwear, there is arguably no brand as popular as Carhartt. With a lengthy portfolio of garments built to tackle strenuous shifts, the heritage label’s Storm Defender Loose Fit Midweight Utility Jacket is engineered to take on the roughest forecasts.

The 4.7-ounce piece features a mesh lining through the body region while nylon lines the inner sleeves, combining to provide optimal breathability and wearability. As far as wearability is concerned, it also has a pair of elastic cuffs, allowing you to adjust the sleeves to your liking. The jacket is finished off with a mesh-lined hood, rounded out by a visor and a hook-and-loop adjuster.

What makes Carhartt’s jacket really stand out is its weatherized capabilities. Thanks to the brand’s signature Storm Defender tech, water stays out while the garment itself stays breathable. In addition to this proprietary tech, the jacket also features fully waterproof seams and zipper and a Rain Defender DWR treatment to keep things dry through and through, right down to a trio of handy pockets to keep your gear safe and sound.

Springtime rain can be a hassle to deal with, but Carhartt is here to lend a hand in that department. The heritage brand’s Storm Defender Loosefit Midweight Utility Jacket is available in a quartet of colors, starting from $100.
