This synthetic pullover is lightweight enough for a full day of pedaling, while supplying the perfect level of warmth and weather protection with a water-resistant finish.

Collar Zip Misses the Mark

This hoodie is a slim fit. I like it quite a bit, it doesn't flap in the breeze but isn't skin tight. The sleeves could be slightly longer but I've got long arms so that's usually the case. Torso length is perfect. The material feels decent and is a good weight for spring/fall riding. It's not thermal but cuts the chill quite nicely and the hood is a nice addition for standing around at the trailhead. It takes a few rides before it starts smelling bad which isn't the worst but I think could be improved with better materials or treatments. The hand pocket and rear pockets are well configured so it's easy to stash snacks or gloves while on the move and the shoulder vents help a bit. I have 2 complaints. First, the rear zippered phone pocket doesn't block sweat, so put your phone in a baggie. The bigger issue is the collar configuration. I have no idea why the side collar would be necessary but it doesn't open up to vent. For me that neck ventilation is absolutely necessary as soon as I start working hard on a climb. There's a mesh panel behind the zip to hold the collar's shape, I'm considering cutting that out but I have the feeling that will just make the collar flop around annoyingly. If that was fixed I'd wear this on every ride.

Cool hoodie that JUST misses the mark

I returned this product before using it
Runs small

This is a nice hoodie that has some fun, technical features like the chest vents and the back pockets. For shorter rides where I don't wear my hydration backpack or for laps at the bike park, this would be a solid performer. The hoodie fits very tight across the chest (I'm not a huge guy) and it would be difficult to layer - sizing up would not be an option as it would be too big. Overall, cool hoodie but for the price decided to look elsewhere.
