I really had high hopes for this product. With a name like " hoody", you would expect some intrinsic level of insulation. However, this "hoody" is only a very thin softshell style jacket that is cut like a hooded sweatshirt. The material is not warm at all and you have to wear a real "hoody" underneath it to get any insulation. I am seriously disappointed in this jacket since it is worthless as a stand alone piece. I was really hoping for a bulked up softshell that I could throw on when it was cool, but this does not work at all for that purpose. The only way you would stay warm in this is if you were sitting around a campfire!

This a light weight soft shell jacket that works great in light rain or snow. It blocks the wind well, but because it is so light weight, an inner fleece or something is need when temps fall below 40. It packs down very small so it is great for stuffing in a pack. I'm 5'11" and 185 lbs, and the medium fits me great. I usually have trouble with the sleeves being too short, but not on this jacket. So far, I really like this jacket.
