Rated 3 out of 5Â by bricknmotarfirstnexttime Eco Smart zipped hoodie 3X
These are not heavy, they are a light-weight hoodie, and feel less cottony and more like they have a lot of synthetic in them, though I suspect that is what makes them exceptionally soft as advertised. The website said mid-weight, but I guess I expected mid-weight to be a bit heavier. If you are looking for a thick cotton hoodie, move on, but if it doesn't matter, these are well made and will work. They are also cut a little snug and are definitely shorter compared to my old Hane's hoodies in the same size, not coming down to the hips, but only a few inches below the waist on me. I'm picky about length and like mine a little longer and fuller (like my old Hanes hoodies), so I was disappointed about that, but that's what happens when you aren't trying things on in a brick and mortar store. I suspect they they are skimping on fabric a tiny bit to keep the price low, like everything else these days, but I don't know that for sure. Just know they are cut tighter and shorter than my old ones. I actually considered returning them, but since I got a discount for purchasing over a certain amount and I would have had to pay to ship them back and all, well....when I did the math, it just wasn't worth it, so I'll just use them around the house/yard. Lesson learned. They do wash up well, the stitching is good and tight, they don't shrink up, the color hasn't faded with a few washings now, and they don't look "cheap" (still look like a well made garment) so that is all good. At least Hane's hasn't compromised there!
To summarize, if you are looking for a thinner weight, inexpensive soft hoodie to wear casually, and length isn't important to you, these look nice and will work...and the price is certainly right. But I'd recommend you buy one size up if you like things full fitting and not snug or think you are getting the same fit for the same size as your old ones.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Feline Very small!
I ordered this in XL, my usual size, based on the size charts. It fit more like a size L. After washing in cold water and drying on low, it shrunk alot, making it like a size M! Had I known this, I would have ordered at least a size up. I'll have to give this away as it's too small for me to wear over a shirt of any kind. Too bad - $ wasted.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by SPIGirl Shrinks when washed
Loved the quality but it shrunk just enough when I washed it that I re orders the next larger size. I will just give the other one to a smaller friend.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Arym Runs a little large for me, but good quality.
Quality was very good. Color was exactly what I wanted. Both the hoodie and matching pants run large though--I am a small person and skinny (5.4 and weight 110 and am built small) so neither fit me very well (both were a bit big--pants were too long and ride high on my waist). But they're extremely warm, extremely comfortable and nice quality.
