it is a well made jacket it is much more ergonomic than the usual cheap welding jackets in the same rice range. the main issue other canvas jackets like this have is that they are very stiff until they break in which is annoying but this does not have that flaw. as i am a small person i had trouble finding this jacket in anything other than large which was an issue but after having it taken in it has served me well. the inner pockets take some getting used to as it is kind of a pain to have to open the jacket to take anything out of it.
personally i wish these jackets had more outside pockets since i usually want my smaller tools (pliers, striker, pencil) on my person so they do not get lost and are easy to access. i found the soapstone pocket all buy useless as it isn't in an easy to access location.
as for its fire protection it has protected me well so far and i have welded everything from heavy flux core and stick to tig while wearing this coat without...
do not try stick welding very long with this jacket lol its good for mig and tig but not much more. they dont tell you in the product description how thin it is. tried using it to stick weld and in 30min had 2 or 3 holes in it. wasnt even doing heavy welding. vert up e6010 rod and 1/4in metal. but is comfy and easy to move for mig and tig. hope all of you read this before purchasing!! i wish i had.
I am a full time welder in a factory. I mig weld and used to wear a dickies shirt with sleeves. However, dickies shirts do not hold up for more than a month or so. I bought this jacket to help save money and get a better quality product designed specifically for the job. The jacket looks great, fits great and seems to be holding up pretty well. I would recommend that you wear a sleeve on your opposing trigger arm though as sparks will land and make holes over time. I usually wear 1 sleeve on my left arm and that is working well. The collar will take a bit getting used to but is nice for when I need that extra protection, and to avoid a "redneck". If you don't need the collar you can still fold it down. The jacket is a little warm but not near as warm as leather. I will definitely be buying another one of these when this jacket goes. I am not sure if it will last 50 washings but I think I will get a good year out of it. This jacket would last many years for a part time welder though.
