I love this hoodie. I have one that I bought in last years model which is designed a little differently. It has a stand up collar in addition to the hood which just made it look nicer than the average hoodie. Last years model also had zip pockets which are a must. I wear this when I'm out hiking and want a secure place for my phone. This one does not have the collar or the zip pockets which is unfortunate. However, the fabric is so soft and stretchy and it is such a comfortable item of clothing to wear. I like that it comes in a solid black this year. It is very durable and the one I bought last year is still in excellent condition. It is hands down the best hoodie I have owned and I will continue to purchase this hoodie in the future and hope that Outdoor Research will bring the zip pockets back.
