I ordered this hoody for a climbing trip where we will be doing big multi pitch routes, starting early in the morning. This is the perfect piece for chilly mornings and it’s a zip up, so easy to shed. There are two hand pockets and a chest pocket. The hood is the perfect size, not too big or too small. Overall, the hoody looks great and is warm! Fits true to size.

Perfect except for a couple of small things

The hoody is a heavy duty fabric, not as stretchy but more windproof than is typical fleece. The wool is not apparent, but it's only 5%. I have worn it a lot but not washed it yet. Fingers crossed it won't pill. It fits well: medium on my somewhat busty 5'4" 130 lb. The hood is a bit loose around my face and there are no thumb loops or holes, even though the description includes them. I like that the sleeves are tight enough that I can push them up and they stay in place on my skinny forearms when I wash my hands, etc. Much better than most - can be really annoying with these longer sleeves. The orange colour is like salmon. Maybe it should be called "lox"!

Wow, I love this hoody! It feels cozy and fleecy without being bulky. I ordered my usual size (S) and it fits a little large, but that makes it great for layering. It’s also kind of long. I’m 5’2 and the length looks nice and isn’t too tight on my curvy hips. I didn’t realize that it has a little lined grid pattern on the exterior until I received it — but I like the unique look that gives it. I’d buy it again if you make more colors!

Perfect fit and stretch

Durable, quick-drying, and designed for layering - it's slim-fit and stretchy so there's no bulk or bunching as I add layers (and additional hoods). And it's designed to cover hips so there's no "riding up" under a pack. Get it!

Comfortable and breathable

I like that it’s long and the hood fits well under my helmet. Comfortable and easy to move in

Zipper broke again immediately after a warranty repair

So I want to love this fleece , and I would , but the zipper on the pocket came off my first or second time wearing it. I sent it in to be fixed, I got it back two months later. I wore it for the first time after it was replaced today, the zipper fell off 15 minutes into my hike. So not sure if these have issues with zippers being defective . I however will say it’s unbelievably warm, I can hike with just this over a base layer until it’s down to like 10 degrees. I do run warm however. It’s the perfect balance of warmth and breathable. I don’t feel like the wind blows through it super easily which is also nice. It’s long enough that it covers some off my butt, the the sleeves are decently long too which I like. The hood is also very cozy. Another thing though , the edges around the sleeves and the bottom are already a little messed up after a few wears. I have the black diamond mitts and the second even the smallest part of the Velcro inside those catches the fleece it pulls at it a lot. It’s like a Velcro magnet . Haha. Anyways, mixed feelings about this. I want to love it, but the durability is terrible. Definitely not the same quality as my synthetic jacket, puffy jacket, shell or mitts. Black diamond, you kind of let me down with this one. Really hoping they’ll do something to resolve this.

Fits good

I like that it doesn’t have noticeable logos all over the hoodie. It fit well and washes great and still looks new every time.

Super warm and comfortable

This jacket is a very comfortable layer that does not add bulk. It is super warm and the length is so nice on a tall girl.

Warm and fits perfectly

Bought this for my wife to wear on our Alaska trip.... it’s already being used. Fits perfectly for a base/fitted piece and is very warm for being so light weight. She loved it.

Versatile quality hoody!

I bought two of these, one blue, one black. I am 5’ 8” and 130 lbs and the small fits really well. I run cold so they are warm enough for me to wear as a light fall jacket and great as an underlayer with my ski shell, though I most often wear them around my chilly house in winter. I washed the blue one a couple of times (cold water, line dried it), and it has cleaned up nicely despite having worn it while cooking spaghetti sauce once.
