Cons: Runs way big, impractical oversized hood, brown is ugly color
Sizing: My husband wears a large in virtually everything on top, seriously a textbook size large. He owns a couple XL things and no mediums. We ordered him a large and he's swimming in it (see pictures)! The shoulder seam is 5" past the peak of his shoulders! We ordered a small for me (according to their size chart, I should be a medium) and it was enormous on me. My husband tried it on and it actually fit him reasonably well except it was a bit too tight on his biceps! We are ordering a size medium for him and having a seamstress install a drawstring. I am returning mine and won't be reordering.
Hood: Even accounting for the overall huge size, the hood is big and impractical with no drawstrings or other means for adjustment. My husband said that in the years he had to wear a hard hat daily, he always wore hoods under the hat because your head would be cold otherwise due to airflow. He sees it as pretty pointless to make a hood over-sized so it will go over a hard hat.
Color: My husband couldn't care less but I think the brown is an awful shade in person. The green we ordered is a rich hunter green.
Heavy duty: These are crazy heavy, thick, and warm.
I'll be sure to come back to edit this review if there's any issues that arise over time and washing. Update 9/2016: Though he doesn't wear it all the time, it has held up to washing and work. It's his go-to when it's really cold.

As others have said, it is very thick. It has a very nice high quality feel to the inside of it.
I have read reviews speaking about the plastic zipper and I can tell you it's a non issue for me. It is quite and smooth unlike another hooded sweatshirt I have from a very well known work wear company that has a metal zipper and it feels rough while closing and louder.
Also, that sweatshirt has zero inner flap under the zipper to keep winter and cold from entering where as this sweatshirt has a large thick flap under the zipper so no wind gets by.
As for the zipper opening by itself? Buy the proper size and you won't have that issue.
Speaking of sizing. Because that is what worried me the most.
I'm 6'1 and 205lbs with broad shoulders and a 34" waist. I also have long arms and wear a 36/37 dress shirt.
I ordered an XL and it's perfect for me except one thing. I wish the sleeve was a hair longer and the waist a hair longer but that's nitpicking.
The waist is not cut like a carhartt sweatshirt. It is cut more like an athletic cut shirt, which I like.
I have large and XLinda carhartts and they work well but have a ton of loose baggy material around the waist.
The hood on this is gigantic. I will never wear with a hard hat but possibly will with a motorcycle helmet and this could fit over that I'm sure!
I will buy another probably without a hood for different uses. But this is a great quality sweatshirt.
Purchased a new Forest Green hoodie from Amazon. This one doesn't seem as thick as my other one that I originally reviewed. If I had felt the thickness prior to buying I don't think I would have spent the money on it.
Purchased from another site:
I own the pullover hoodie version in 4 colors. I think they are brilliant and the snap closures on the hood are a nice touch. I thought maybe I also needed a full zip version..... Not Really but I kept it anyway. The sweatshirt is thick but the hood attachment looks a little weird. The neck line is too big IMO and the very top closure looks weird when fully zipped. The zipper looks ok but doesn't match to the thickness of the fabric IMO
It doesn't have the rugged appeal the pullovers do but it is still a decent hoodie. Although a tad overpriced.
I still love it but would have liked more room.
Unfortunately, I'll have to send this one back to get a Medium (when I usually wear a Large). I believed the last review posted that said that you should order "larger." I disagree. I'm 5'10" , 175lbs and this Large dwarfs me. The sizing issue causes my 4-star rating.
Overall the heaviest I have ever had and super warm. This is more of a work outside hoodie rather than a fashion statement for indoors.
I would definitely buy another one.
