I haven't used this hoody in action yet, just lazy Sundays around the house and quick walks with the dog. I have to say though, just from those short experiences, I'm pretty bummed.Pros: The colors of the hoody are phenomenal! Whatever color you pick will be exactly what you were picturing. It's also mega comfy. Easy to throw on layers underneath or over top. Breathable mesh underneath the pouch, sleeves are long enough for the taller folks. Cons: There is no shape to it. There is a seam that hits right above the breast and creates your torso (at least mine) into a lovely box shape.If you can get past the ungirly cut, BUY IT! It wont disappoint.
I love this hoody. If I could wear it all day every day without getting weird looks, I totally would. It's warm and comfy and basically everything I've ever wanted in a hoody. Thanks Patagonia and Moosejaw for making my dreams come true.
SO cozy without too much bulk. I can wear it under my parka and still not feel like an over-stuffed sausage. I really could live in this sweater. The hood fits over my head even when I have my (long) hair up! Its not particularly contoured to the body so don't expect a slimming silhouette. I love the snaps on the neckline because zippers tend to pinch my chin. The kangaroo pocket is deep and lined with a mesh material. It does shed a bit, unfortunately, but not too much. That is really the only pitfall. Oh, and the chest pocket is a joke. I'm 5'5 and 115lbs. Ordered a size small. *For the people who shiver to no end in the winter, this sweater is for you.
I've never owned Patagonia before but a friend of mine has one of their fleece jackets and I fell in love with it. Sadly, I had to eventually return her fleece so I bought my own. It is super soft & comfortable. I will be getting this in many colors.
"Perfect for Oregon weather/college student/hipsters"
Lets be real. I'm 19 years old, I walk half a mile in the cold to my classes everyday and most days it rains. I like to be fashionable but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do. This jacket makes up for it. The retro look fits in perfect into the pacific NW and even makes me look like a hipster when I rock out with my raybans. Thanks MooseJaw & Patagonia, You've done it again.
I mean... this thing is amazing. Fleece pullover + snaps + a hood = excellence. Warm and cozy, plus it comes in good colors. Has served me well in the city and the backcountry, good for layering under a windbreaker or by itself. Patagucci scores again!
