2117 – An Extremely Facetious Product Test


Everyone knows the Carhartt WIP Chore Coat is tough. Like, really tough. It’s made of that thick iconic 12oz duck canvas we always go on about and, worn under normal circumstances, will last for years.

But normal circumstances are boring. So, with tongue firmly in cheek, LAW Magazine decided to test out how rough and rugged it really was. As part of our 2117 project, WEAR TEST sees the Chore Coat put through a series of tests – under a motorbike wheel, against a welder’s blowtorch, up against a shotgun.

Did we expect it to come through these tests? Absolutely not. But it was pretty fun. Check out the short clip below.

2117 magazine is now available to check out in full at Carhartt WIP stores and select retailers.
