Reviewer: JT30, Location: Oregon, Occupation: Residential Treatment Specialist in Behavioral Health Love the Clarksburg hoodie I have the camo/pink Clarksburg hoodie, and the black heather one, and I just ordered a coastal blue heather and another black heather. I love these hoodies! I'm just happy to have these in my size and at a decent price because I can find neither in my area. I find that the color stays true even if I wash them 4-6 times per month. The only place the color seems to really fade is the elbows, but maybe I lean on my elbows too much. I wear these at work, around the house, and out and about. They keep me decently warm in temperatures above 40 degrees Fahrenheit and give me some protection but not as warm as a coat in freezing temperatures (I've been running around in -2 F to 20 F and in snow with just this hoodie all week however). I use the hood a lot to keep the snow off and keep the wind from blowing at my neck.
When the hoodie first arrives it's very soft, but after the first wash it isn't soft on the inside anymore and you start getting little fuzzballs in the arms which are scratchy. After you wash it 4-5 times however it stops being scratchy and softens some again.
My only real complaint is that when it's zipped up all the way I like to pull it up over my mouth to keep my mouth warm in the wind and cold weather. It's not soft in that area like other coats or zip up hoodies I've owned are so it's irritating to my lips. I wish they would find a way to make it softer or maybe add a flap on the inside to cover the zipper there.
- Moderately warm
- Color lasts a long time without fading
- Fits nicely

- Softness wears off after first wash.
- Scratchy at the top of zipper area if you want to pull up over your face.
