Converted the anti-fleece girlfriend.
This ain't like your mama's fleece. Nope, this puppy is velvetsoft and while it's light as air, it seems strong enough not to wear, and to top it off, it's almost eerily warm. Great light layer for chilly houses too, I've already found myself sleeping in it on cold nights. But best of all... the NYC girlfriend who hates fleece just said something about "loving it" this morning (as I told her I needed it back cause I was leaving). So hey, what more can I say?

I purchased this hoodie for my husband and he loves it. It is comfortable and warm. The material is more fleece-like, not a regular sweatshirt material, but that is what he likes about it. My husband is about 5'6 and 160 lbs... I got him a medium and it does fit but is a little loose and a little long in the arms (but he doesn't seem to mind). All in all, it's a nice hoodie that I'd definitely recommend to anyone who wants something lightweight but warm!

The Perfect Hoodie
The first day I wore this hoodie, I put it on for my morning walk and didn't take it off until night. My instant favorite. The temperature swung from upper 40's in the morning to maybe 80 mid day and I was neither cold or hot in my black hoodie. It blocks wind, repels water, breaths, compresses, has a secret headphone eyelet inside the kangaroo pocket and is SUPER SOFT. I get much cuddles from wifey with this hoodie - What more can I say?
