Icebreaker Women's Crush Hood
Just what I wished for
Perfect weight, longer length, hoodie to chase drafts - this sweater will see a lot of wear! I ordered one size up from usual and it layers over other long sleeves comfortably.

I bought this jacket to take traveling in June; it's only March and I haven't taken it off since it arrived last week. The color is a beautiful jewel toned blue/green, the fit is flattering,tailored yet roomy and the hood is neither too big nor too small. It zips up to your chin which is a great feature and perfect for regulating your temperature. I am 5'4" and weigh 116. I bought a size small and this jacket fits like a dream.

My beautiful new blue hoody
I bought the black first,then the blue color. Love the fit and warmth. I often wear this as a warm insulating layer under a wind blocking shell on the coldest days to Nordic ski. The hood is perfect over my wool hat to block breezes blowing down my neck. Also love it with jeans, casual, but not sloppy.

First on, Last off
This hoodie is the first thing I put on in the morning, and the last I take off at night. Wearing it after a hard day at work is like cozying up in front of a fire, by mid-afternoon I'm waiting for that moment of" ...ahhhh" when I can snuggle into this hoodie. But if I change my mind and decide to go out, this hoodie can go with me and look good on my city streets.

Great Travel Layer
This hoodie has been an awesome addition to my wardrobe! I lived in it for three weeks while traveling - it was a great mid-layer in snowy Colorado and a great top layer in sunny Louisiana. It looks good and is functional. I washed in a hotel sink once and it dried really quickly (almost overnight). I LOVE it and love the color. I am 5'3" about 160lbs and the medium fits perfectly - I like that it is a little long and therefore covers my hips.

The length of this hoodie is perfect and provides a nice flattering line. Though I got it for sporty wear, it actually looks rather elegant.

Socal Winter weight
Tried both large and x-large (in black) - arm and torso lengths the same just wider around the body - but not a huge amount. In the end I went with the large - my usual size. I doubt that I will wear too many layers underneath - maybe my Icebreaker tank and 260 weight top. It is really comfortable and warm, even sitting on the beach first thing in the morning before yoga. Good depth to the pockets and the way it zips up almost making it a turtleneck is great - keeps my neck, chest and back warm.

Hoodie as security blanket
Not only do I have the crush on this jacket, it is so snug and warm it feels like you're wearing your childhood security blanket as a jacket. Since there are no lumps or bumps at the seam this is the perfect jacket for those cooler days in the yoga room. Love it and would buy it again.
