        Overall

        This is a very comfortable hoodie, not meant for skiing, that has poor durability. It is not worth the price on the FD store so buying it from sell/trade would be best.

        Performance

        This is a super comfy hoody because it is so soft and warm.  It is not good for skiing because the wind cuts right through it and because it is 100% cotton it gets wet easily.

        Design

        The design is awesome and all the color choices look great. The cuffs have thumb holes which I would rather not have on a hoody but could be hepful to someone with a bigger size. The pockets are zippered, which is a great feature.

        Value

        The price on the FD website is $56 and the lowest shipping option is $15.58 so it ends up costing $71.58. This is too much for a non water proof hoody, especially with its poor durability.

        Fit

        I am 6'2" and have the XL. It is a tall fit and the length is listed as 33". XL is a good length to wear around, but too short to ski in.

        Durability

        The durability is pretty bad and disapointing. When my hoody came there were already problems whith it. One of the snaps to hold down the hood was missing (so there is a random snap on my back) and there was a small hole on the shoulder. FD said they could fix this for free if i sent it back in but that would mean $30 in shipping.
        Within a few weeks the zippers for the pockets came undone and fell out because the stitching was so bad.
