Carhartt Storm Defender Jacket: was $299 now $179 @ Carhartt
As the name implies, this jacket is built for the nastiest of conditions. It uses a generous amount of GORE-TEX in the design, so you know water isn’t getting in. It also looks incredibly sharp. This is a piece I’ve only ever tried on in the store. At full price, I can’t quite justify the purchase. But at $179, it’s awfully tempting.
Carhartt Rain Defender Anorak: was $79 now $47 @ Carhartt
The Rain Defender is considerably lighter than the Storm Defender. While still water-resistant, you’ll likely want to avoid torrential downpours while rocking it. The two-tone design is also a bit more casual and fun than the all-black Storm. I also appreciate the nice loose cut, which shouldn't restrict movement. You additionally get zippered hand pockets and a communal pocket — the jacket can be packed into the former for storage.
Carhartt Knit Beanie: was $24 now $14 @ Carhartt
This makes for a great, affordable gift. The humble beanie (or tuque, for my friends upstairs) is a winter staple that anyone can appreciate. And I probably don't have to tell you that Carhartt beanies, in particular, are ridiculously in at the moment. Beyond looking cool, they are as comfortable and warm as you might expect. This is also a one-size-fits-all affair, so, don't have to worry about busting out the tape measure to size up your partner's dome piece. They're going to love it.
Carhartt Midweight Hoodie: was $54 now $41 @ Carhartt
Carhartt just so happens to make my favorite hoodie of all time, the Rain Defender (not to be confused with the Rain Defender jacket above). And while that model is a little more rugged and, no doubt, water-repellent than this one, both are supremely comfy and built to last. The Midweight Hoodie features a loose fit, with a large front communal pocket and a generously sized hood. It's also available in a wide range of colors.
Carhartt Modern Fleece Jacket: was $64 now $48 @ Carhartt
Carhartt's Rugged Flex Bonded Fleece Jacket was originally designed to keep folks working in hospitals warm, dry and comfortable during their long shifts. So you know it's legit. But you don't have to be in the profession of saving lives to rock one. This is a great choice for anyone needing a sharp yet flexible zip-up.
