        Overall

        It this bad boy was $69.95, I would tell everyone and their mother to get one.  Unfortunately most people would be hesitant to purchase a hoody for that price.  I think this is the best piece of clothing I have bought all year, and I am ecstatic at the price I got it for.  I would definitely recommend this hoody if you are willing to pay the money (they will probably go on sale in the spring though!), you will most definitely not be dissapointed.  This is a very good example of "you get what you pay for".  It is by far the nicest hoody I have ever had (including a Jiberish hoody).

        Performance

        I was very suprised by this hoody, because well...I was just expecting a hoody with a zipper.  What I got was an awesome and very warm (it is 15 degrees out with this wind right now) piece of clothing that is thicker and warmer than some of my outerwear!  The best way to describe it is that it feels as if someone is hugging you while you wear it- it has that nice heavy weight to it that lets you know it was worth the money.  I use it in place of my jackets since it is so much more comfortable.  It also has thumbholes that are embroidered well enough that I just found them while I was typing this!

        Design

        The design is simple with the nicely embroidered 4FRNT symbol on the front.  I like the tag repping the company on the hood because I get a lot of people saying things like "Nice hoody, who is 4FRNT?" and I get to rep the ski world for a little while.  I prefer clothing that isn't too flashy most of the time, and the black goes with everything.  For me, this subtle look is great for walking around most of the time.

        Value

        This is where this hoody looses it's points with me, $90?!?!?  It's VERY nice, much nicer than it looks in the pictures, but I wish it was more affordable so that more people could rock them.  I am fortunate enough to have a pro form with 4FRNT, so $40 was well worth every dime, but I would not have likely purchased the hoody since I didn't get to try it on until it was shipped to my house.  If I tried it on in the store and felt it's amazing-ness, I would still have been very tempted to put out the dough.

        Fit

        It fits just great!  I am 6' 185 and it is one of few hoodies that fits just perfectly.  The fit is similar to Jiberish in that it is nice and long instead of fat and wide.  I got a large, which goes just about to the bottom of my ass.

        Durability

        So far it has held up great, and hopefully I can give 4FRNT clothing a better rap than their skis are earning right now.  The entire piece is well put together, and even my mother (a critical and meticulous quilter) admits it is a nice piece of clothing.
