Last week, Jenny, Jessie, Julie, and Caitlin got to take the Carhartt 2016 Spring Line out for a spin while picking vegetables at Frog Holler Farm. Come rain or shine, there’s work to be done.
Jessie is wearing the Force Equator Jacket. It is constructed from Storm Defender material, which means you’re gonna stay dry in even the heaviest of rain. To top it off, the Force Equator Jacket has been bonded with FastDry, a quick wicking technology, so you can finish the job with protection from the elements and sweat. (The island blue color Jessie is wearing will be available next spring.)
Julie is wearing the Rockford Windbreaker. It is also outfitted with Rain Defender. This jacket has a lighter feel to it, great for a windy but temperate day on the job. (The burnt coral color Julie is wearing will be available next spring.)
Jenny is wearing the Mountrail Jacket. Its waterproof breathable membrane is made of Storm. You’ll feel snug in the complete coverage with adjustable cuffs and fully taped seams.
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.

Recycling and reusing building materials is the ideal way to go about repairing old houses and architecture. In a time when so much excess waste proliferates, as strong proponents of green construction arise, they need our support. Amy Nicole Swift is just that. When she’s not teaching at the university, she’s working to restore vacant Detroit properties. It’s a dirty and exhausting job, but crucial to rebuilding this iconic city. She founded Building Hugger, an architectural design-build firm, to give back to the community and breath new life into old spaces.
