A performance fleece zip-up to get you on the top of your game.
You're a road warrior—just you and the dog. You step out of your truck at Arches National Park and zip into the Oakley Women's Back to the Top Jacket. You've been wearing it for a week, and thanks to the O Hydrolix moisture management and antimicrobial properties, it doesn't stink and has kept your temp just right. The jacket is fitted, yet still allows layering underneath, and the raglan sleeves give you a nice range of motion. As you scramble up some rocks to an overlook, you slip your thumbs into the thumbholes, so you get a little added protection without losing dexterity; if the breeze kicks up, you can also can also flip up the hood from the high collar. You're at the top; you're in the Back to the Top. It's fitting.

Oakley Back to the Top Jacket
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Lets be real, this is a hoodie- not so much a jacket. While we're at it, a not so technical layering piece. It does have reflectors on the back of the hood but I would say thats for a late night stumble home from the bar.
Heres the goods about it:
Features thumb holes which in my opinion were thoughtfully designed & perfectly placed. The cut of this jacket/hoodie- wait- lets just call it the jahoodie, is relaxed and good for warmth. Another plus is the neck which is like a turtleneck inside the hood in case the weather turns for the worse.
I can't see myself working out in it, or really using it as a layering piece because it's thick.... With that said, this hoodie is a perfect piece for bike commuting? or even better just lounging around the house. I kinda was hoping for a bit more, but thats is because the seasons are changing. Also the picture made this jahoodie look more fitted & flattering than it is.
It runs true to size because if you size down the thumb holes might be too short.
Comfy, but works.

At first I picked this sweatshirt because it looked really comfortable. Later I realized you can zip it all the way up like a turtle neck. I am not sure if I really love that feature, but it does keep you warm. It was just a detail I kind of missed before I tried the sweatshirt. The sweatshirt is form fitting as well. It's a great all around sweatshirt if you are looking for a little more jacket feel.
