Love the wool blend

    I love the wool blend. It's a great mid-layer or can be worn stand-alone if it's not too windy. It keeps me warm, has a hood, great fit...what more can I say. I've had it a few years now and while there has been a little pilling, it's still in great shape.

    Please restock!

      Looks like I'm not the only one on here hoping this hoodie gets restocked!
      As stated, it feels great, fits great, and has all the right features. I'd buy one of these in each color, plus one of the heavyweight ones. Please bring it back!

      Favorite hoodie, ever.

        Crazy comfy. I basically live in this hoodie. Awesome material keeps the weather at bay. Chest and 2 front pockets are great for stashin whatever. Fits great and looks unbelievable. Wish you guys were still making these! i'd order at least another 2!

        nice fleece.....

          On the steeper side for price......but decent i guess? I'm not much on the sleeves down by the wrist. I have a large, I'm 5'11" 170 with pretty long arms and the sleeves seem to be made for maybe an Orangutan? Everywhere else the jacket feels true to size. I definetly would not pay full price for this. Not gonna b*tch too much as I do where the jacket alot'...plus I have to "Represent" the Goat!~

          Please make this again

            This is my goto layer for nearly everything. Warm for it's weight, fits AMAZING (6', 180lbs got a large), and looks great. Seriously, if you have a chance to grab this hoody, it's definitely worth it. I absolutely love it.

            Please Please Please Backcountry, can you make this again? I've burned holes in mine and would really like a replacement...

            Street? Yup. But I think Tech, too.

              I know that the Siphon is made for looks, but I tried it out as part of my layering system on a recent Himalayan trip. At first I wore it just around base camp, but then I ended up wearing it for a quick acclimatizing jaunt up the mountain- and was completely sold. I found the wool-poly combo worked excellently as my outer layer during moderately cold temps (around 10F, no precip)- as long as I kept moving. When it got colder or I when moving slower up high, I layered it under my down parka or shell jacket. More and more these days I try to incorporate wool into my layers for its insulation and moisture management benefits. Conclusion: Lightweight, strong tech performance, street looks = friggin' nice.

              Street? Yup. But I think Tech, too.

              Hell yeah!!!!

                Finally got my hands on one of these after eyeing them online for months....Fully lives up to everyone else's glowing reviews of this little piece of gear heaven. I'm 6'1, 190 lbs and was able to grab a L....I have a fairly athletic build, and like a more snug/athletic fit that Arc''teryx, backcountry/stoic do so well. Anyway the Large fits me perfectly. I know its hard to find these even anymore, but if you can track one down, especially for the discounted price, I cannot recommend it enough! I plan on living in this thing for a long time to come!

                Sweet...

                  Strong...nice sweatshirt! I'm 6'4", 230 and the xl fits great. Originally ordered the Graphite, but Graphite is really more like black so sent it back for the denim. This is a nice mid-layer but not quite as substantial as I was anticipating. I thought the wool weave would make it more heavy-duty but not the case. Overall, good purchase!

                    I Like It

                      As others have mentioned, this is a slim-fitting top. I am a 44R 34 waist and the Large fit well. I use this as a mid layer over a T with a lightweight R4 on top. You will need a wind-blocking layer on top of this sweatshirt if it is windy outside. Zipper is a little clunky when fully zipped and under another full zip layer (read as uncomfortable when putting your chin down). All in all this is a great layering piece and it is what it is, nothing more, nothing less.

                      I like it

                        6'4" 235, XL is a little tight around the shoulders, chest and upper back, should have went 2X, but didn't get in on time. Love the trim fit around the midsection as most XLs and larger are made for people that also have an XL stomach (which isn't always the case). Body and Arm Length is awesome and I hope this style becomes more available from BC.com. Fast shipping and great service (as usual). I'd change the pocket's interior (mesh, really?). Overall, a little tight going on but becomes comfy after a few minutes. Make more!

                        Great Everyday Hoodie

                          Great for everyday use around town. Not the warmest sweatshirt/zip-up hoodie I've ever owned, but perfect on cool evenings. I am 6'2" 205 and the XL is a bit snug on me so you may want to buy up a size. Overall, I am very pleased with this item and since its made by Backcountry, you know you cant go wrong.

                          All around great hoodie...

                            If this fabric didn't pill so badly I would give this hoodie the full 5 stars. It fits great I usually wear a medium in most jackets and did go with others suggestion here to go one size up (L). I wear it all the time which is why it so quickly pulled in the bumps in almost every area of the hoodie. It has plenty of warmth to keep me going even in the colorado morning cold with a shell over the top.

                            Can we please bring this back? It is such a good jacket.

                            WTH is wrong w/ BC.com for not keeping this awesomest of fleece-hoodies in stock? I shoulda bought 5 of them. This is ONE hoodie thats eternal. I love BC but seriously - shame on you guys for not continuing this line and/or maintaining something even close to it. So sad. So sad.

                            Backcountry - what are you thinking??? Can't find this hoodie-fleece on BC.com anymore. WHY??? This is by far the most supreme hoodie-fleece of all time. Is there not another similar model? Disappointing.

                            Will these ever be back in stock? I have had one for a year and a half, and I'd like to buy 3 more. This is the beat sweatshirt ever made!

                            What does the denim color look like? In the picture it looks almost purple, is that true or is more of a dark blue?

                            I just got this in XL for Christmas (denim color). It is more of a dark sea-blue than a navy, but definitely not purple. For the current price this is a buy. I really like the front zip for cold mornings as I can tuck my chin inside very easily. I took down my Christmas lights wearing this and I was plenty warm as I began. By the time the swearing and bloody knuckles began, the jacket was breathing like a son-of-a-gun. Not too warm/adjusted well. It is not windproof, so I use my softshell for cycling instead, but this works well as a layer in those conditions. I am 6', 185 and the XL fits well as a casual jacket--really not too big as some of my North Face XL's have seemed to be. I think the cut is just more slim. The thumb-holes are terrific for pulling jackets over the top. I was hoping for the black, but I'm actually pleased I got this as most of my gear is depressing in color. This "denim" is a solid choice. (Way too much information for an answer to your question I'm sure).

                            I read several reviews regarding this hoodie. I am 6' 195. I have a 43" chest, 32" waist, wide shoulders, and wide back. Obviously, I think the Large would have fit fairly well, but the XL is the only remaining size in stock. Should I pull the trigger? Or will an XL be too large in the waist?

                            Has anybody ignored the washing instruction label and tossed this thing in the dryer? If so, did it shrink up, get all deformed, or pill like crazy? I wouldn't mind if it shrank a little but i don't want it to get all screwed up.

                            What size should I get? I'm 5'11" 165lbs...fairly thin. I normally wear between a medium and a large. I like the mediums, but the arms are sometimes too short; larges tend to be too bulky through the chest
