I have had a Carhartt Ranch coat with the blanket lining for many years. The blanket lining got shredded pretty fast on the right side, apparently by my Leatherman holster. The lining isn't worth a damn, and the zipper won't zip up some times. But given all of the givens I like the coat. I prefer my Army surplus coat for warmth and function though. I have a couple of Carhartt shirts and they seem to be pretty good so far.
