        Overall

        Overall this hoodie is awesome.  Definitely worth the price, great company, good looking, unique, etc, etc, etc. 

        Also, they produced the single greatest edit ever.  No questions asked.  You know what I'm talking about.

        I'm for sure going to support Jiberish in the future.

        Performance

        So far it's done its job.  It's warm and really comfy and I love wearing it.

        Design

        I love this hoodie.  I enjoy the design and for some reason it always stuck out to me as I scrolled through last year's Jiberish.  Luckily, it was still available in December '08 on Abstract Mall.  I think it was the last one.  But this has nothing to do with design, so I'll stop.

        The thickness is perfect, in my opinion.  Not too thick to the point that it's heavy, but not too thin, either.  It's just right, like Baby Bear's soup.  The hood is thick and warm and fits with the contour of my head.  Great job on that part Jiberish.

        Value

        In my opinion, it's a great value.  Many factors went into my decision.  Quality, price, company, looks, service, etc. 

        The quality is unsurpassed, it's Jiberish. 

        The price?  Well, $70 for any hoodie is pretty expensive, but I felt that all the other positives greatly outweighed the price (plus it was a Christmas gift, thanks Santa). 

        The company really pulled me in as a customer.  Jiberish is a great company that sponsors tons of sick skiers and they're core!  Totally X-Treme!

        It's a great looking hoodie.  What can I say?  Jiberish knows what's up.

        Plus, I knew that at any point, if something went wrong or I had a question, I would get answer promptly.  Whether it be an email or PM'ing pdrago.

        Fit

        To be honest, the fit is a little awkward.  I'm 5' 5" - 5' 6" and bought a medium.  My intention was for all around use: big/long enough for urban usage, but small enough so that I don't look like a fool wearing it school or just around. 

        Length-wise, the fit is perfect.  It met my criteria 100%.  But I feel like the sleeves were a bit short and the width at the bottom was larger than necessary.  Perhaps Jiberish wanted the bottom to be wide to fit over snow pants, perhaps they didn't.  But I think even if they slimmed it down a bit, it would still have fit over my snowpants fine.  Of course, it really isn't a big deal, it's simply something I noticed and found odd.  Also, the sleeves could be a couple inches longer and a little wider circumference-wise, but this is also something that wasn't too big of a deal.

        Durability

        So far I've taken it on 3 urban missions and it hasn't dissapointed.  I've got no rips or anything, just a stain.  But that's the rusty rail's fault.
