NRS H2Core Lightweight Pullover Hoodie - Men's

A hoodie with a secret.

The NRS Men's H2Core Lightweight Pullover Hoodie has a casual style that looks great around town, but it's secretly a water-lover for paddlers. Its polyester and spandex blend breathes, wicks moisture, protects your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays, and provides some stretch for unimpeded mobility when paddling. A relaxed fit allows you to layer this hoodie over other tops, but it also fits well under a drysuit when the occasion calls for it.

Solid Hoodie

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love the fit and quality. The material is a little thick for my liking but overall no complaints.

My New Favorite Hoody

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really like this hoody. The material is soft and quick to dry and I like the fabric underneath the arms that helps to wick moisture. I wear a medium in most products, but I went L in this sweatshirt. I think it fits well. I'm 5'9" and 180 with long arms. As bullet point number 2 calls out, this thing is a relaxed fit. Great for casual use, sun protection, traveling, and to warm up after spending time in some chilly water. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

Poor Fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I wish H2Core hoody fit better, because its got a great style and the fabric is very comfortable. However, it fits extremely short in the torso compared to the sleeve length, and the torso area seems to flare out at the bottom–the shoulder area fits great, but I've got about 5" of extra width around the waist.
It would probably fit well on someone a little larger and with a shorter torso, but I wouldn't recommend it for us longer torso, skinny folks.
