I live on a farm in the panhandle of Fl. It gets cold here but not too cold for too long. I dress in layers so when I get overheated, I remove my barn coat and still am warm and comfortable wearing this hoodie. It's a sturdy 90% cotton fabric with a baby soft lining, roomy pockets, and I love the hood, especially on wet windy days. It keeps my neck warm and the zipper keeps out the cold.I bought 4 of these in different colors, size Small. I am 5'5" and normally wear a size 8. The sleeves are a little long on me but I can just roll or push them up. I toss the hoodies in the washer and then pull out of the dryer while still damp and let air dry on a hanger. I just couldn't find comparable hoodies for my lifestyle in women's sizes. And you can't beat the price! I will probably order a few more.
