Traditionally, I've always purchased the Carhartt rain defender quarter-zip, but I've been in search of a replacement for a while. 1620 finally popped up on my social media, so I started browsing their products. I've been wanting one of these for a while, but was hesitant with the pricing. I FINALLY pulled the trigger a week ago and I'm glad I did! High quality fabric, warm, and love that it's made here in the U.S. I will DEFINITELY be purchasing these from now on. Don't hesitate due to pricing, they're worth every penny!
