Carhartt Men's Bad Axe Jacket #100259
When you have to punch the weather in the mouth to get the job done, only the best of the best will help you deliver the blow: the waterproof breathable Bad Axe jacket. Constructed of a rugged nylon shell with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish with three-layer waterproof breathable membrane, it's lined for comfort with a polyester tricot bonded interior. Zippered under-arm and side vents add ventilation, and hook-and-loop adjustable cuffs help seal out the wind and rain. The attached hood with draw-cord adjuster adds protection, and the draw-cord adjustable hem provides a great fit. Don't forget your cell phone and tools; the left-chest map pocket features a media port to inner garment, and two lower-front slash pockets provide storage. The jacket is Carhartt strong with triple-stitched main seams along with stretchable heavy-duty nylon overlays on elbows and shoulders plus heavy-duty nylon reinforcements at the cuffs and hem. There are waterproof zippers throughout and fully taped waterproof seams.

Measuring for Proper Fit
The following guidelines are important in getting the right fit:
- Take all measurements in inches
- If your measurements are between sizes, order the larger size
- For greatest accuracy, have someone else take your measurements (rather than doing it yourself)
- Your tape measure should be pulled snug, not tight
- NECK: Measure the circumference of the neck (see illustration)
- SLEEVE LENGTH: Place one end of tape at the bottom of your collar, at the center of your back, then measure down around your elbow to the bottom of your wrist (it helps to have your arm slightly bent)
- CHEST: Measure at the fullest point of the chest, keeping the tape under arms and around shoulder blades; Be sure to hold the tape level and firmly, but not tight
- WAIST: Holding the tape snug, not tight, measure at the top of the hipbone over shirt (not over pants); If you wear your trousers or jeans at a different place on your waist, adjust accordingly
- INSEAM: Measure from the base of the crotch to the top of your shoe or boot; For jeans, add one inch
- CHEST SIZE: Measure at the fullest point of the chest, keeping the tape under arms and around shoulder blades; Take this measurement over clothing you'll typically wear with the jacket
- SLEEVE LENGTH: Place one end of tape at the bottom of your collar, at the center of your back, then measure down around your elbow to the outer edge of your wrist
