NippletronThe academics riding pullover is "100% polyester fleece with heavy-brushed back is DWR treated to repel water on the exterior and fleece-bonded for breathable warmth on the interior."
where as the SAGA pullover is "SAGA-tek fleece pullover so you can have a streetwear look with on-hill performance."
The Riding Pullovers will feel less like a cotton hoodie and more like a performance hoodie. The Sweatshirts while still having SAGA-tek fleece to add some waterproofing will still feel more like a traditional hoodie.
If you're looking for something to be more of a technical style layer to go under a jacket then go with the Riding Pullover. The sweatshirts will still work fine but obviously the Riding Pullovers are more performance based.
Hopefully that helps.
Saga.Above reply is good. In regards to wind resistance they will be essentially the same with the riding pullover being slightly better as it is designed to be more of a performance piece than sweatshirt.
