    Default Is there a perfect hoodie?

    I'm in search of the perfect hoodie. I have/or have had most of the usual suspects .... American Giant, Patagonia, TNF, UA, Flint and Tinder ... but have yet to be fully satisfied.

    For those for who whom a hoodie is critical apparel, what do you wear? Or do you consider a hoodie as a commodity, like flip flops on Kaui where only the tourists wear OluKai.

    I have a merino lined Outlier hoodie that is pretty perfect. It’s full zip, has big hood, but not too big, it’s soft on the inside and pretty tough on the outside, I’d call it the best I’ve had.

    I’m not sure if it’s still available though. And it’s pretty pricey like most of their stuff, I think it was like $180ish.

    Found it, OUTLIER Merino Co/weight Zip Front Hoodie

    Looks like it’s gone for now, but you can always call, sometimes they have one or two of seething but it’s not on the site.

    For proper analysis I need more details. Is this an outer layer or mid layer ?

    Depends on the use, I have a cashmere hoodie my wife bought me years ago that gets better each year for casual wear. I go through athletic ones in a year or two, then replace.

    Yes. Both. Not looking for something technical, per se. Looking for Colorado chic. But more Leadville than Boulder.

    Melanzana. Available only in Leadville. The gold standard in the hiking world. Don’t settle for anything less

    Ask the experts - post this on Facebook or ask around at the local nursey school, play ground, food court at the mall, is Orange Julius still around, dreaming of the rolling hot dogs

    The perfect hoodie can be found-in the trash.

    Hoodies are for thugs, punks, and hipsters.

    I'm interested in one of these if someone's rolling through...

    Zip or pullover?

    I have 2 that see 90% of my jacket wear days. I'm not sure that either would qualify as (Leadville) CO chic, though. One is a Sport-Tek brand (Sport-Tek - Product Details - Mens/Adult / Sweatshirts & Fleece - ST238) which is one of those companies that mainly sells to folks needing promotional apparel. Light, 3-season type deal. Thin, but comfy. The other is my Dickies hoodie (Black Jacket | Fleece Hoodie | Dickies). I can live in either one of these. The Dickies one is more than I'd ever really pay for a hoodie, but I got it on sale, so...I could sorta justify it.

    For me a perfect hoodie is cheap and replaceable. Wearable anywhere for any type of outing or work. Both of these satisfy those requirements.

    Carhartt would be a close 3rd.
