Known for its rugged workwear, Carhartt created a new line to tackle the extreme cold. The Yukon Extremes line is made to keep you warm while you get things done outdoors this winter.
Carhartt’s latest apparel line, Yukon Extremes, uses Thinsulate insulation, reinforced shell fabrics, and weatherproofing to offer new cold-weather performance for the brand.
The brand’s first Yukon collection came 25 years ago. And this new Extremes line incorporates recent outwear technologies to make the jackets, bibs, and fleece lighter and more flexible without sacrificing durability. Additionally, this marks the first time the collection extends to women’s wear, and it introduces new fleece offerings.

Carhartt said it designed the Yukon Extremes line to perform in ultracold conditions without bogging you down. In keeping with the brand’s focus on durability, the abrasion-resistant nylons are assembled with triple-stitched main seams. So, if you expect to go to battle with the deep winter cold this season, you’ll want to be prepared.

Meet the Gear
In case you’re not familiar with the Carhartt Yukon Extremes line, we’ve highlighted a few of the key pieces from the brand to consider before the temperatures take a dive and winter is here to stay.
Made to block wind and repel water, this insulated coat also has stretch across the shoulders to keep from impeding your work. It has a drop hem and storm cuffs for keeping out the cold as well as an optional hood that snaps onto a corduroy-trimmed collar. There are plenty of pockets inside and out for stashing gear or keeping hands warm.
This parka has a two-way zipper with a snap-close storm flap for easier adjustments with gloves on and added protection from cold winds. You can further adjust the fit with the hood drawcord and storm cuffs.
As the name implies, this jacket uses the 3M Thinsulate insulation to keep you warm while you work and even uses the insulation in the hood. It has internal storm cuffs and an elastic hem to keep out cold air.
The Biberalls have double-layered knees (including an opening for Carhartt’s knee pads) and ankle-to-thigh zippers with snap-shut storm flaps. There’s a zipper up the front, and its elastic suspenders let you adjust the fit with the low-profile buckles.
Passed down from its workwear is the plethora of pockets: Ledge hand pockets, front cargo pockets, back pockets, larger utility pockets, and even a hammer loop.
Carhartt gets into fleece! This men’s jacket offers wind-fighting protection in its 13-ounce, low-pile sherpa fleece with 500-denier CORDURA shoulder overlays. Rib-knit cuffs and waist help keep out the cold, and there are chest and sleeve zip pockets for keeping smaller essentials handy.
