Finding the perfect hoodie to MOVE in within the Ottawa Valley

Happy Friday and a cold one at that!
Comfy wear is a favourite for everyone. Especially in an area where sweater weather can span over 3 seasons well, really even 4 seasons if need be. Finding the perfect hoodie that is great for casual occasions, after a workout and sometimes even superhero events is hard to find! These hoodie choices are based on design, comfort and the movement test. Having the opportunity to try on all of these except for one, was enjoyable.


What are the Components of an Awesome Hoodie?

  • Colour and Design

  • The Cut and Length

  • Hood/Cowl Size and Pocket Size

  • Warmth

  • Comfort and Adaptability (when moving)
