Although I'm a woman, I wear a large or XL in ladies sweatshirts. So for super comfy & cozy lounge wear, I resort to the men's department. this hoodie is exactly what I wanted, long arms, long in the body and just the right weight in case I want to layer under it. Although it is more of a lightweight fabric, at least it won't take up the whole washer/dryer everytime i launder it,since I plan on wearing it very often. Perfect piece for a cool weather (...not frozen Lol) jog also. The outer weave appears to be well made, & I don't expect any issues with it over time. Great to buy for the price!
