Cotton Duck
Carhartt’s duck line is made of heavyweight, 12-oz. 100% cotton duck.  This fabric is tightly woven with no gaps where the yarns interlace, making it wind and snag resistant.  Cotton duck is known for its quality, durability, and comfort.  This line of outerwear features two different finished looks in a variety of colors.

Sandstone Duck
This fabric is micro-sanded to achieve a brushed look and then garment-washed with detergent and softeners to achieve a "broken-in" feel.
Extremes garments have shells of 1000 Denier Cordura® Plus Nylon by DuPont. This makes them water repellent, wind resistant and extremely durable. Carhartt Extremes with Arctic Lining is the ultimate choice for the harshest of conditions.
