Needed a full-zip lightweight hoody, and was skeptical about going cotton (or at least partially cotton), but I have to say I've used this many, MANY times and am always impressed by it. I've even worn it hiking and mountaineering and didn't feel chilly when sweaty, despite being cotton. Love the longer sleeves with a thumb loop and a thumb catch for layering and the super deep pockets. Looks great in the dusk color, i.e. provides some color without standing out like a sore thumb. Sized it large for my pregnancy (and to climb through pregnancy) and will use it for breastfeeding after—added bonus! A word of caution: some other reviews mentioned they were surprised by how lightweight it is. Just because it's a hoody, don't expect it to be heavy. It's very lightweight!
