LOVE...LOVE....LOVE this hoody! (Review by Pinecone)

My hoody came just last night and I've been wearing it all day. Here is a little about me - 5' 9" tall, weigh 216, and my bra size is a 38DD. Obviously I'm a larger woman and I am extremely nervous about ordering ANY shirts online. My husband saw this online and we both thought it would be a great hiking/overnight backpacking hoody. But we were both worried that the XL would be too small. I was worried that zipped all the way up, the zipper would make me feel as if I was choking regardless if I was wearing the hood. The fabric is so comfortable and stretchy that zipped 100% up, it does not choke me what so ever. Also, the cut is so flattering that when I look at myself in the mirror, I don't see my faults. I LOVE...LOVE....LOVE the thumb sleeves. The sleeves are just the right length as well. This is well worth the money and has jumped to the top of my favorite shirt list.

Soft like pajamas, but you can wear it outside of your home! (Review by AlpineRodeo)

Oh man, when I first received the Melody hoody, I didn’t take if off for weeks! The inner fleece is sooooo soft without adding any bulk. I wear this thing to work, around town and climbing, and get tons of compliments on it. It reminds me of an old favorite Lulu hoody I had, but not as heavy and functional for more than just in transition to a gym or lounging. This is a great all-around layer for the cooler months!

DREAMY (Review by Grace)

This is maybe the most expensive hoodie I have ever bought, but after wandering into REI and touch it, I had to own it. I have never felt softer fabric. It's thick and warm and buttery and velvety, but also slimming and actually not that heavy. It is the softest, warmest things I have ever touched, but also breathes well and doesn't get sweaty. I have barely taken it off since I bought it.

Want to wear this everyday! (Review by mtngeek)

So comfy, really, I just want to wear this everyday. It feels like wearing a snug fuzzy blanket but better-looking. :) I've only been wearing this to work so far, but I imagine that it would be great for cragging and as a heavier layer for cold-weather sports. The purple color is lovely and rich, and the fit is slim and stretchy.

I am normally an XS (size 2) in OR technical wear, but sized up to S in this for layering.

Incredible Comfort (Review by Wats)

Just ordered this sweatshirt and can't wait for it to arrive! I tried this beauty on at OR recently and immediately fell in love with how soft and comfortable it is. The Cornflower blue is beautiful and the cut is flattering. I can already tell that it will have a permanent place in my post-climb "happy" bag. Nice work, OR!
