I use this hoody for everything! I wear it at work , and I wear it snowshoeing, backpacking, kayaking, rock climbing, and running errands. Seriously, this hoody has been everywhere. I'm female, but there's no layer equivalent in the Women's section, and I find that due to the cut of the hoody it fits pretty well. I also love the thumb holes! Sad to see its numbers dwindling, and I hope OR keeps it in stock!
