Fit was more like an XXL rather than a Large
on November 19, 2014
I've had a Dickies heavyweight hoodie, size large, for about 10 years and its been the best full zip hoodie I have ever owned. It has out lasted several other brands hands down. It's been durable and warm, but it is showing its age. I wanted to replace it with another one of the same style. I ordered the same size and when it arrived I was shocked. It is labeled "large" but it fit like an XXL rather than a Large. Also, the hood is massive in comparison to my original hoodie. It's like the hood was made 3 times to big in comparison to the hoodie itself. I chose to return it via the Amazon easy return process. I re-ordered a medium and it arrived within the two day shipping plan as usual. I tried it on and the jacket fits good, but the hood is also 3 times the size of what it should be. Dickies needs to contact the maker and have them reduce the size of the hoods on these jackets. They could save on materials by doing so. Other than the over size hoods and the lack of being able to try it on for fit before buying, the Dickies heavyweight hoodie is a nice rugged jacket that wears well and lasts a long time. I hope this one lasts as long as my previous one, which I use as a work jacket now.
