Rated4out of5bymphillips82fromWarm and versatileI picked this up to be a lightweight warm layer for my Yellowstone backpacking trip earlier this month. I used it for mornings & evenings when temperatures would get down into the low 30's. I wore it over a long sleeved Mountain Hardwear synthetic t-shirt, and when it was very cold or windy I wore my Marmot Precip jacket over the t-shirt/hoodie combo. Turned inside-out it made a nice soft pillow to save weight.
I found it to be very warm, and having an attached hood is super convenient. It kept clean and stench free quite well on my backpack trip, and on day four when I did finally rinse it off in a creek it dried off within a couple of hours hanging from a tree branch in a sunny breeze.
I've also used it for short jogs on cold mornings, and it's so warm that I have to take it off before I've finished my first mile.
It definitely fits a bit large, but I think that the loose fit adds to the warmth. Tightening the drawstrings around the waist and hood help keep the breeze out, so the large fit doesn't make it drafty.
In strong winds or very low temperatures this will not hold much warmth. I overcame this by wearing a cheap rainproof shell.
I've only had it for a month, so I don't have a great deal to say yet about durability, other than it has held up well so far, and it feels like it'll take a beating.
I look for reasons to wear it, and I've already recommended it to friends.

Rated3out of5byOceanHikerfromSuper-comfy but not windproof at allGot this hoodie on sale. This hoodie is super-comfy, and I bought it for chilly nights in the desert. But if there is even the slightest breeze, forget it. You'll be shivering unless you add a windbreaker. In that combo, this is great. But unless on sale, over-prized for what you get IMHO.

Rated5out of5byzanesdadfromGreat JacketThis jacket is very well made, looks great and offers an excellent step up in style from most hoodies. I love the zippered pockets to keep your phone amd wallet safe while riding.

Rated5out of5byStorminCDNfromWear it all the timePerfect light weight hoodie. I wear it constantly inside, as I keep my house a little on the cooler side. Zipper is very good, which is one of my pet peeves about most hoodies/jackets. Sizes tend to run on the big side, I'm wearing a S when I usually wear M. Descent price.
