Hoodies are awesome. The Format is our base model hoodieÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ but donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let that fool you. We don't do base model the way others do base model. The Format is a bonded jersey flleece hoodie with a little something extra under the hood. Wicking, stretch and quick dry, the Format comes with our eco DWR coating to provide one more level of weatherproofing between you and mother nature. Bonus!
- ECO DWR (DURABLE WATER REPELLENCY)
- BONDED JERSEY FLEECE
- ORIGINAL FIT
I have been looking for a really nice hoodie for a while now and I couldn't be happier with my purchase of the Orage Format in grey. It doesn't have the "tall" fit of the Stack hoodie, letting me be a little more flexible in how I wear it (can wear it to school, etc, more easily), while still being nice and baggy. The ECO DWR treatment is super nice and the hoodie really doesn't get wet unless you are standing in pouring rain or something. When water falls on it the liquid usually rolls off; if you let it stay there it does make a dark spot, but it doesn't feel wet, just looks wet. The inside has a nice fleece lining which is super comfortable and keeps me nice and cozy.
When you first get the Format it has a super nice new sleek look and feel and as I have worn it a lot the fabric has started to pill slightly and have a rougher feel, but I would say that gives it more of a worn-in look that I like, but someone could definitely see this as a downside.
Definitely my favorite hoodie for everything from layering, bumming around, or goin' out!
