The jackets will feature special embroidery on the chest featuring the Slamdance logo.  Made in the USA, Carhartt's Detroit jacket is constructed of rugged 12-ounce, 100% cotton duck, and features a blanket lining in the body and quilted nylon lining in the sleeves. There's a corduroy top collar with under-collar snaps to attach an optional hood. Inside, there's a welt pocket and outside there are two large front pockets and a zippered left-chest pocket.

Carhartt has been telling authentic stories since 1889."
