I love how the sleeves and body of this hoodie seem to be cut a bit long. It's a great weight for pretty much any season except winter (this wouldn't keep you warm enough). This one has already gotten almost daily use since it arrived. Perfect for the chilly spring mornings and evenings.

The new fit is excellent! It is a bit longer in the body and sleeve. I love it! It went well with my slipover dress for shopping and some recent cool nights at the beach. Comfy, warm and excellent fit! Couldn't be better!

More like a (heavy) t-shirt weight
Was looking for a replacement for my trusted Survivor Jackets but this isn't it. The zippered pockets are a nice improvement but it's too lightweight for my needs.

Love the fit and length. Great quality and style. I get lots of compliments on this jacket.

Nicest fitting & most comfortable sweatshirt ever
Bought this for my daughter first. She loved it as it is lightweight and therefore so very comfortable. Had to then purchase for myself and love that it is not too thick or heavy.

Fits narrow in the body part, nice overall
My daughter loves these jackets & this is her second. Narrow fit in the body/trunk, however, stitching gives a modest, shapely appearence.

Good Everyday Basic
I purchased two of these sweatshirts, one in white and the other in blue midnight in extra large. The material isn't as thick as the wonderful old Survivor jacket. This hoodie does have about five percent spandex for some give. The fabric does have a nice hand, and the jacket has a bit of "give" without stretching out. The main zipper is metal rather than a matching plastic zipper, which is great because that is what wore out first on my old Survivors. The side pockets are awkwardly placed on seam, although they each have a nice zipper in the same color as the jacket fabric. I took off one star for the pockets and for the fit inconsistency.
There was a slight discrepancy in size between the two, with the white being slightly roomier. I stayed away from this product when it was offered last fall after reading reviews saying that it ran small, but that is not my experience. I plan to wash these in cold water and hang to dry until I am more confident that they won't shrink. However, this is largely because my three teenage boys do most of our laundry! I look forward to wearing this after hours, on weekends out and about, and to school on casual Fridays.
