this is by far my favorite hoody EVER! I get so many compliments on it...it is crazy! This is one you have to have zipped up a little always. the side zip makes is hang low on one side and the side pocket sticks out on the other side. The hoody is not super heavy weight which makes it great for cool conditions. I got it in a large, which was a little larger than I liked, but after washing it once, it shrunk to the perfect size large that I am used to having. You will NOT go wrong with this. I have no idea what the dude was talking about this being stiff. It is not and everyone needs to seriously have one or 2 of these!
