This product was first made available for sale on Amazon in 2005. I guess that makes it a classic. It has received over 1500 reviews during its long selling period. Astonishingly, 75% of the reviews have been 5-star (the highest possible), while 14% of the buyers’ reviews have been 4-star (pretty darn good). Do the math and that leaves 7% of the rest of the reviews are 3-star, 2-star and 1-star jobs. Oh, only 2% of the 1500 reviewers who bothered to write reviews rated this item with 1 star, the lowest rating. All in all, that makes this puppy the third most popular hoodies sold on Amazon. Take a bow, Carhartt Men’s Midweight Sweatshirt. You earned your place at the top!
A relatively recent (April 2017) review by a guy named Zalman kind of summarizes why this hoodie is such a fave:
This is a very soft and fleecy medium weight hoodie, with solid brass hardware and high quality stitching and other finishing details.
Many people do not identify the brand name Carhartt with the word ‘soft’. They think of the slick, solid outer coats that could be warn in a monsoon rain. Revise your thinking. Other reviewers agree with the “soft’ characterization.
The length of this hoodie pleased many reviewers. As was written quite often, the body of this hoodie is quite long. That means you don’t have to buy the next size in order to have a sweatshirt that covers the wearer”s butt. Of course, if you buy the next size the whole things can be baggy and unflattering. Now you can have good coverage and a good fit too.
Like almost any other item of clothing, finding the exact right fit can be a problem. Many buyers like to flatter themselves into thinking they are smaller than they really are in the real world. Many manufacturers make their sizes a bit big so people who are large get away with a size medium. You have to determine for each manuacturer whether their sizes match your expectations. For online shoppers that might mean going to brick and mortar stores and using them as showcases to find what fits you, then going online and buying for keeps.
Just to round out the picture and give another voice, it is worth noting that a reviewer named Susan gave this item a 1-star review. She claimed the colors ran and gave her a pink-blotched mess. That must have been a real disappointment. As I have written in other reviews for other popular brand name products, it is possible the purchaser bought a fake knock-off. Unfortunately, in this world there are plenty of people who try to ride on other people’s successes by taking defective stuff and putting a brand name label on it. I may be wrong, but don’t dismiss that possibility. And be aware that a great brand name producer will almost certainly replace the purchase of a dissatisfied customer.
