Unless you’re already holed up in a bunker to wait out the end of the world, you’ve probably noticed it’s getting cold outside. Weather like this calls for a jacket. Not just any jacket, but a Carhartt Quick Duck Woodward jacket ($130), one that features lightweight construction, a water-repellent finish and the kind of down-to-earth, workman-inspired style we’ve come to expect from these guys.
If you’ve ever worn Carhartt gear, you know their stuff is heavy duty. It’s built to take a thrashing, after all. But with Carhartt’s new Quick Duck fabric, they’ve reduced the weight of their traditional Woodward jacket by 30 percent, without sacrificing warmth or toughness. That means you can wear it in less-than-favorable conditions but still have the ease of movement you’d expect from a much thinner jacket.
In the storage department, the Woodward sports six pockets for plenty of stow-away space, including an interior media port that’ll keep your headphones close at hand. The quilted interior provides warmth and comfort, and triple-stitched seams ensure this jacket won’t be showing signs of wear and tear anytime soon.
