How do these compare in toughness to a standard Carhartt?

7 reviews over on Amazon 4-5 stars.

http://www.amazon.com/Dickies-Mens-Sanded-Hooded-Jacket/product-reviews/B009RJNKQG/

One reviewer does mention Carhartt and felt the Dickies was the better value for the price.

Perfect timing woot! Just told my girlfriend yesterday how I was wanting a carhartt type jacket because I liked my brothers when I borrowed it, but it was too short for my long arms. Skinny and 6'4". And it didn't have a hood which I wanted. Plus I'm a poor college student and they aren't cheap! Anyways, the large tall should hopefully do the trick! Fingers crossed!

Now off to bed before 8:30 Thermo II

Goodnight woot! Sleep tight and don't let the screaming monkeys bite!

A Woot's a Woot, no matter how small!

Time to check out the product page

I was pretty excited to see this come up. This is definitely a jacket I would wear and the price can't be beat. Wish I could be in for three but too poor at the moment but in for 1!!!

My first impression is that I really like the look of the jacket. And I'm in the market for a spring- or fall-weather coat.

Can anyone verify if this style is good in wet weather?

Exactly why I won't buy it! I don't know who writes that description, but I consider that to be very deceptive advertising.

I own lots of Dickies jeans and work shirts.I bought this jacket at Dickies website a couple of years back.The insulation is very thin so you'll have to layer or wear in the fall.The duck material is also light weight.I'm not the most muscular guy in the world,but the armpits just don't have enough room.If you had to swing an ax,this jacket will impede your movement.I buy slightly irregular Carhartts on other websites for twice the price and am very happy with the fit and quality.

I've been wearing Dickies pants and jackets for over 10 years. Dickies are affordable, durable, virtually wrinkle free, and the black pants and jackets do not fade. I am only speaking about their line of work pants and jackets. Their jeans do nothing for me.

Having worn a Carhartt jacket once or twice, I think Carhartt has slightly better quality materials. Or maybe it's the higher prices that make it seem higher quality.

Unfortunately made in America is a statement very few companies can make these days. DIckies is still an American-owned and operated company based in Fort Worth, Texas and they make really durable, affordable and stylish clothing. I'm a fan. Even if the description is a tad misleading it should not be a deal breaker.

I can't figure out if I need a tall. at 5' 10.5" tall I'm sure torso heighth figures in. No returns means I'd better figure it out.

This is a great deal! Dickies has seasonal clearance sales often, and the best deal I got was 25% more for a jacket that is a bit lighter than this one (style "TJ718" still the duck canvas, but 10oz instead of 12oz).

My dad uses these (and their overalls) at work doing maintenance. He likes them, and the hold up well.

I think if american garment workers did the construction nobody could afford it. We forget that we want the low prices but high wages.

For anyone that has one of these... Does the shell shrink in the wash causing the tail in the back to roll up? I've had similar jackets where the outside was cotton and the lining was poly or nylon and after washing, the back would roll up because the shell shrinks but the lining doesn't. Thanks

Time to learn more about the warranty

I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend the Walls brand of work wear. The cost is considerably lower than Carhartt, but the quality and durability are on par. I would not even put Dickies in the same league as Carhartt, Walls, or Berne.

I bought a new, not irregular, Walls heavy duty cotton duck winter work jacket, and it was right around $50

Spend a little extra money, it will be well worth it.

In for 1. Hopefully the people in the warehouse can tell the difference between 2XL and 3XL, they clearly can't tell the difference between LumaTwist and LumaPivot.

Wages aren't the problem. CEO salaries and corporate profits are. Worker income is flat, top 1% is up hundreds of %.

I also am interested in use during wet weather. thx

I have this jacket and really like it. It is incredibly durable and doesn't snag or tear when I catch it on baling wire or tree branches.

It is not waterproof. If you go out in much rain you'll want to Scotchgard it.

It washes up perfectly. I get it filthy with mud and animal waste which dries thoroughly. It always comes out of the washer clean even when I use the short permanent press cycle.

It doesn't shrink in the wash and doesn't roll or bunch up. It comes out of the dryer wrinkle free.

As for sizing. I'm short (5'4") and wear the medium which is a bit long on me.

Oh, it also is really good at keeping out the wind. It keeps me warm enough where I am, although I did wear a couple of layers when our temps dropped to the low 20's. So I can't speak for those in parts of the country that think the low 20's is summer weather.

Can anyone comment on sizing? My dad typically wears a 2XL, but if it fits tight, I would play it safe and get a 3X. It seems like those are the only sizes left, so hopefully they don't sell out as well.

yes/no. while Carhart's are More expensive than Dickies, many people do spend the money for them.

Carhart is/are made in MI, by Unionized American workers.
they are part of the UFCW (United Food and Commercial Workers)as am I (I work @ a grocery store)

This is a canvas coat it is not a raincoat. Dickie coats that are weatherproof say, "Storm", on them.

Dickeie pants run a little small in the waist but I have had good luck with their coats. I am a 3xl and the 3xl jacket I have is almost to big so if you dad is a 2xl get him that.

I own two Carhartt coats and they are both imported and a quick search of Amazon shows that most of their products are.
If you want American made work wear check out Bruns Clothing made in South Dakota.

Wow, touchy subject -
where is work wear worn...

Dickie's britches don't fit (me) well, frustratingly, so the sizing for these might be problematic as well.

Exactly. I buy things made in China because I realize if it was made in the U.S. I probably wouldn't be able to afford it. Garment workers in the U.S. probably make more than I do with two degrees because of unions.

That is simply not true. There is still lots of stuff made in the US and it doesn't cost more than imports. Case in point: Nike Air Jordans Concords--made in Indonesia, sell here for $180. Cost to Nike to Manufacture--$16 (including $9 for materials, $2.50 for labor (workers earn $4/day).

The cost of labor in goods is fairly small--even when made in the US. Motorola is now making cell phones in the US (with some foreign parts).

And a study showed that if Apple made iPhones in the US, it would add only $7 to their costs. Labor costs on an iPhone are only 5%-10% of the cost. Apple's overall markup currently is 54%. They can afford the extra $7. The largest cost for many consumer goods (and foods) is advertising and marketing--not manufacturing. Don't blame the American worker.

Only $7 more??

Apples sold 33.8 MM iphones last quarter. Hell, $0.07 adds up fast when the volume is that high. And the large majority of that money goes into R&D for the next product.

A 54% markup is pretty standard (50% considered the norm). If you do not like where it's made, don't buy one. Pretty easy solution.

Not a fan of Dickies. If you want a quality jacket in this style that will keep you warm and dry I'd go with Carhartt.

This is tempting, as I'm in the market for a new jacket like this. But after getting burned on an item during the WO for $20 more than you can get the same direct from the manufacturer, my Woothusiasm is at an ebb.

Any opinions out there on how sizes run on these bad boys?

I'm a pretty big guy, and always find myself between a L and an XL... It's a crap shoot most of the time.

Think it would be smart to go XL?
