Practical Gifts for Women from Carhartt

Sometimes we women like to be treated to the best, but also get a gift that’s practical and needed. This year I’ve partnered with Carhartt to tell you about their amazing products for women that make incredible gifts. Living in Michigan, I definitely need a coat in the fall/winter. Did you know that Carhartt offers women’s coats that aren’t their typical work gear style? Don’t get me wrong, I love some traditional Carhartt, but having something to wear casually is always nice, too! For a long time I thought of Carhartt as just work gear for “blue collar workers”. When I attended the Mitten Moms conference in 2013 I was introduced to much more. I met with Carhartt representatives and saw their out-of-this-world line of products. They have so much more than I could have imagined. They have outerwear, kids clothing, women’s and men’s clothing and more!

Carhartt Christmas Gifts

Carhartt has been America’s premium work wear brand since 1889, which explains why I initially thought they were just “work wear”. They are based right here in Michigan! I love working with local companies and I’m proud to say this amazing brand is local to me! Carhartt kindly sent me the Crowley jacket for review. It is the perfect combination of work and casual, of course, if you don’t have a job where you get it too dirty that is. In that case, you’ll need two! 😉 Before I tell you about my personal experience and thoughts with the Crowley jacket, let me give you the details from Carhartt:

  • 13.7-ounce, 90% nylon/10% spandex with Rain Defender® durable water-repellent finish
  • Wind Shieldâ„¢ technology shields you from the wind
  • Four-way stretch
  • Two lower-front pockets with secure zipper closures
  • Left chest map pocket with secure zipper closure
  • Adjustable cuffs with hook and loop closures
  • Triple-stitched main seams (Classic Carhartt Signature/hallmark)
  • Two inside pockets
  • Back Length: 27.5 inches
  • Sizes XS to XXL
  • Retail $120
  • Available in Black, Aegean Blue, Crab Apple

More about Rain Defender®

The Rain Defender® durable water-repellent finish makes garments rain, mist and snow resistant. Moisture beads up and rolls off to keep you drier and on the job longer. And it’s tough, too. Rain Defender® retains 70 percent strength even after 20 washings. 

Carhartt – Practical Gifts for Women

When I first received this jacket I wondered if I would be able to wear it here in Michigan in the winter months. It seems a bit thin in person. I thought, “I’ll try it and see how warm I stay.” I have been wearing it with the colder weather (in the 20s and 30s) and have been comfortable. I don’t think it will be the jacket I go with when it gets into the single digits or below zero though. It’s a jacket I will gladly wear all through fall and it’s perfect for so many parts of the country! The Wind Shield technology is powerful! We’ve had some windy and cold days this fall and it’s been amazing to wear. It does a great job at blocking the wind. The Rain Defender® finish is also needed here in Michigan, as it does rain in fall and spring (sometimes winter, too!).

Adjustable Cuffs
The Crowley jacket has adjustable cuffs using hook and loop, which is amazing! The hook and loop has great strength and it doesn’t easily come undone. The stitching on the jacket is top quality.

Interior Pockets CarharttWhen looking for clothing/outerwear gifts for women, you have to consider the pockets! Women love to carry things with them and always need space to put things. The Crowley jacket has three outside pockets (one chest and two lower, side pockets) that zip closed and two inside pockets. The inside pockets remind me of a thick mesh material and they are perfect for cell phones, gloves, wallets, etc. I personally use the outer pockets for things like keys or anything that might need to be more secure. I can’t see things falling out of the inner pockets, however, the outer zippers are nice to secure items. You can also see the inside lining in this photo. The lining is a warm fleece-type material that is soft and comforting.

The outside of the jacket again has Carhartt’s Rain Defender® durable water-repellent finish and Wind Shieldâ„¢ technology. This type of jacket allows you to “trust your gear, not the weatherman”. If any of you are in or near Michigan, you know how important that is!

Carhartt for Christmas

Don’t get me wrong…Carhartt still makes the absolute best work wear on the market. If you have someone on your list who works outside or in any “blue collar” job, I hope you have Carhartt on your list of things to buy this holiday. If you don’t know someone like that…I still hope you have Carhartt on your list of things to buy. As you can see they have practical things like amazing jackets and more! Put a little Carhartt in your life…it’ll be love!
