Birchbox Breakdown

Worn under or over, inside or out, the hooded sweatshirt is so useful and versatile that it merits the title “essential.” This classic take has the zipper, hood, and kangaroo pockets required of a basic hoodie, without the bells and whistles that can overcomplicate your look. And since it’s made from a high-quality Eco-Heather blend, the fabric won’t wear out, however much you might wear it. Don't know your size? Check out our Sizing Guide.

How to Use

Made with the brand’s signature Eco-Heather (a blend of organic cotton, recycled polyester, and natural rayon), this hoodie is both incredibly soft and surprisingly durable. Split kangaroo pockets and a brushed nickel zipper show a marked attention to detail.

So Soft

This hoodie has a soft fabric and is very well made. I love the quality of the products made by this brand. This hoodie is very flexible and comfortable. They are made true to size as far as I can tell.

Comfy and lightweight for spring/summer

I really like the styling and sizing on this hoodie. I'm tall, and it's hard to find women's hoodies that aren't too short in the arms and don't hike up on you. This one is made of very lightweight and soft cotton, and great for warmer weather. I just bought my second one.

Comfortable & light weight

I've had this for several months and worn it probably 20 times. It fits well (pretty slim). Because it's so thin/lightweight, It's great to wear when you don't really "need" to hear a hoodie. I really like wearing it under a leather jacket or sport jacket. My only complaint is the wrist openings are really large. I don't remember if they were as big when it was brand new or if whatever kept them relatively tight just wore out quickly.
