There are some days work has to be done, come rain or come shine. Carhartt Women’s Force Equator Jacket’s got you covered. The lightweight material makes it easy for you to move around and get the job done. A Storm Defender™ waterproof breathable membrane keeps you cool and dry. Normally, you’d be working up a sweat, but the FastDry™ technology wicks away moisture and even fights odors. The waterproof seams, three piece hood, zippered pockets, and adjustable cuffs keep the weather at bay so you can focus on the task at hand. There’s even a media port so your phone or ipod can stay safe and dry. This jacket has it all and then some.
Pashon Murray from Detroit Dirt is wearing the Force Equator Jacket as she works at her compost site. Pashon is a powerhouse and a visionary. She was on Newsweek’s list of disruptive women in 2014. In other words, she’s a female entrepreneur making an impact in her community. Pashon collects compost that would normally be thrown away around the city. She then uses it to make soil that can be used as a fertile base in community gardens and the urban farming movement. Pashon’s work is bringing Detroit one step closer to rebuilding the area into an environmentally conscious and proud, self-sustaining city.

Remember Detroit artist, Kate Silvio? Along her path to becoming a craftsperson, she’s picked up many useful trades and skills. Metal fabrication being one of them. Working in the metal shop can be extremely physical labor. After all the welding, cutting, bending, and hammering it’s easy to work up quite a sweat. That’s why Carhartt Force is perfect for a rigorous day on the job. It’s made with FastDry® technology for quick wicking, Stain Breaker™ technology that releases stains, and the fabric fights odors to boot.
Take a look at some of Kate’s work here.
Check out what she’s wearing: Carhartt Women’s Force Performance Quarter-Zip Shirt, Original-Fit Canvas Crawford Dungaree, Billing Safety Glasses, and Women’s Soft Hands Gloves.

Welcome behind the scenes of Crafted in Carhartt in Washington DC. Here are a few things I’ve learned taking pictures over the years. Hopefully a few of these tips can help you out.
- Clouds are your friends. Overcast skies provide great light coverage without the shadows of direct sunlight.
- Try out new angles. Be daring and climb on things. Lie down or kneel on the ground. You’ll see your subject in a whole new way.
- Candid photos are more compelling. Posed pictures don’t feel as authentic as photos that capture people in their element.
- Ditch cheesy editing tricks. A lot of times preset editing filters and effects look cheap and unprofessional.
- When it comes to composition, be aware of everything. The background can be just as important as the subject.
- Change up your subjects. Look at the things around you in a different light. You’ll learn to see beauty in everything.
- Experiment! Never be afraid to do something wrong. The trash bin is a very underrated tool.
Photography can be whatever you make it. For me, it’s photographing some of the more interesting ladies around. I get dirty, I climb on roofs, I sit in piles of mud, I scale silos, etc… The Carhartt Women’s Force Performance Tank is exactly what I need for work. It’s stain resistant, odor blocking, and sweat wicking technology helps me out on all fronts. That way I can focus on the work and not on staying clean. Give it a try! Once you get Force you’ll never go back.
Think about how you’d describe your best friend. Is she sweet? Fluffy? Covered in powdered sugar? Okay. That’s probably not how you’d depict her. But for Torya Blanchard, owner of Good Girls go to Paris, that might be exactly what she’d say when thinking of a friend. Good Girls is a Detroit hotspot for over 50 varieties of crepes, all named after Torya’s friends, with specific attributes in mind.
Heather, pictured above, is a crepe-making master. Cooking up nutella, strawberry perfection sounds like a fun job to me! When you’re in the heat of the kitchen, the moisture wicking technology of Carhartt Force is on your side.

In ranch life, family is everything. Just ask the ladies of Dalby Ranch in Post, Texas. Since it’s beginning in 1901, it’s been around for 5 generations. To beat the Texas heat, the girls are wearing Carhartt Force shirts. Working outdoors in southern temperatures can be pretty intense, so the moisture wicking technology and stain releasing fabrics of Force make the workday more enjoyable. We’re sure a little dirt and sweat never scared you before, but with Force on your side, it won’t even cross your mind.
