Rated5out of5byK8grisfromVery satisfied with mineI decided to check out reviews on REI.com for my beloved Moongazer hoodie. I was suprised to see negative reviews about the fabric and wearability. I have a white Moongazer I bought at REI more than a year ago, and just added a second one. I literally wear mine every single day. I live in a desert climate, so the weight of this jacket is perfect for throwing on as I walk to gym in the morning. In the summer, I wear it when air conditioning is too cold. I like mine so much I recently bought a second in Baltik color - it was an impulse purchase at an airport. In fact, because the first one has no discernable wear (and I literally wear it every day), it felt like a silly purchase. (And now that I see it's on sale at REI, it was silly. Oh well.) Anyway, I love the feel of the fabric, how comfy it is, how easily it zips, and I put my phone and TV remote (for fitness center) in the pockets. SO: not sure if negative reviewers got a different fabric lot or what, but I wear mine a lot and love it so much I bought two.

Rated1out of5bySmileottifromLoved this but poor material wearingI loved this hoodie and wore it often for light outdoor activities, such as hiking, or just had it with me when camping or for weekends of travel. It fit well, I liked the color, and got many compliments on it.
Unfortunately, I ended up returning it after about ten months because the material had worn away completely in some parts, particularly the elbows. I really don't think my elbows are sharper than average. Fortunately, REI has the great return policy that they do so I got a full refund, but I hope KUHL can find a new material for this kind of hoodie because whatever they are using isn't very good.
