I bought my Lululemon Remix hoodie over two years ago and have warn it almost daily, either as a spring/fall jacket or under my winter coat for added warmth and even on cooler rainy summer days. At first I couldn't believe how much I had spent on a hoodie, definately not me! I felt like what a rediculous price for a hoodie! Why am I falling into the brand trap? But I've really come to like Lululemon's products, but still feel they are a little over priced, even though the quality is good.

My Remix hoodie has become a huge staple in my wardrobe, the one item of clothing I have gotten alot of use out of. As many times as I have worn and washed the sweater jacket the color has not faded, it is still the same color as it was when I first purchased a few years ago. The hem and sleaves have not frayed, and the zipper has until recently not given me any problems, it now gets stuck because the zipper teeth have been bent from being stuffed in my locker and having bags and books shoved on top of the sweater, so this is really just my fault.

The hoodie is really deep and great for winter to keep the wind off your face, it stays on in windy situations and doesn't blow off, which I love! There are two roomy pockets on either side, for hands or even a small wallet and cell phone which I have use them for, and have never had a problem with anything falling out!

The hoodie can be worn alone as a sweater jacket because it is pretty heavy and warm, it is made of preshrunk cotton fleece, I throw mine in the washing machine, then dryer, I am not delicate with this thing, so I am amazed at how much use and the treatment this sweater has had and it is still like brand new, so I no longer care how much I paid for it, I would probably buy another one if I ever want to and not second think it!

You can also wear it under your winter coat if you live in a colder climate which I do, and has kept me so very warm I actually stand at the bus stop in -40 windy weather sweating under this thing! It is also perfect to wear this way as I have many times not bothered with a scarf because it does have a scuba collar and zips all the way up the neck to the chin! The sleeves are also longer.

The zipper comes with an attached lululemon logo pony tail holder. The hoodie comes in a range of styles and sizes, I am a small but bought mine in a large because I wanted the longer length, as these sweaters can be short. I am petite 5feet and the small came just above my hips to my waist, and was form fitting, the large comes to my hips and is still form fitting, just a bit looser in the arms, but the torso still fits the same, so these sweaters are made small in width in every size including large and x-large! I mean, if I am a size small-medium normally, and a size large in these sweaters fits me perfectly without being baggy or loose! So this is a huge con! Try them on before you buy, they are a yoga wear company, so I guess that is the body type they are catering to, not the 'every BODY' type, but the 'yoga' body.

The picture I have included shows how the large fits on a size small person.
