LOVE, LOVE, LOVE for biking and beyond!

Can't say enough about this piece, the fit is ideal for mountain biking (spring skiing, bike commuting, running errands, traveling, etc, etc). Some pullovers can feel constricting or tight, this is the perfect fit for biking, stretchy, and roomy enough to layer underneath. The length is ideal in the torso and the arms (I'm 5'6" and ordered the small). There is a slight fleece backing, which has me grabbing this pullover for spring ski days. On top of all of that, this hoodie is durable and weather resistant, so far have worn in a light sprinkle and the hoodie nicely shed the rain drops. So stoked on this technical pullover and cannot wait to wear for all my spring adventures! I purchased the caramel color, perfect for being seen when out on the road or trail.

A great layer on a windy day

This is a great warm layer for those cooler spring/end of fall day. It's warm enough to wear a short sleeve underneath. Also fashionable/comfortable enough to wear to the post ride beer!

Love it!

I've put it through the wringer

From shoulder season at the bike park to spring conditions ski touring, I find myself reaching for this hoodie constantly. It's just the right weight to not be too warm, and the hood even fits under most of my helmets so that it's not flopping around everywhere. Fortunately, I haven't had to test how weatherproof it is, but I can say it does block wind pretty well, and the slight fleecy inside is super soft against my skin. All these things are great, but my overall favorite feature is the pocket. It's just the right size for my phone and small multitool, and its positioned just right on my left side that I barely notice it when I'm riding.

I've used it several times

I just got this hoodie in black and love it! The fit is great, although if you are between sizes I would size down. It has a roomy fit. I have used it for everything- biking, hiking, running, and x-country skiing. It's super easy to get on and off, and the hood is not too bulky. This is a great piece!
