Scuba Hoodie II
size up, sleeves too long
I ordered my usual lulu size 4 and the fit was a bit odd. The shoulder area looks like it still have plenty of room, the waist fit just right, but sleeves way too long. For reference, I am 5'3", 110lb.

So happy with this new updated scuba hoodie! I had ordered the scuba hoodie stretch last year and was so disappointed with it because it had absolutely no stretch! and it felt like a straight jacket, that and it's plastic zipper made me wanna burn it. I had decided that these scuba hoodies were a sham, but I tried one more time because they had the estate grid pattern and i'm a sucker for windowpane. I was nervous it would be tight and uncomfortable but I was pleasantly surprised! This hoodie has just the right amount of stretch to look clean and fitted but comfortable and moveable. I have a larger bust and hips and it has just the right amount of room. Plus, a metal zipper! I'm on the shorter side, 5'3, and found this hoodie still hit my lower hip. It's super thick and warm and I love it. I found my usual size to fit just fine. I think if you want a loose hoodie or are maybe very tall, size up. My only gripe is the shipping! WTH Lulu!? It took 2 months to get here! I would have rather paid to ship it than get free shipping and have some half rate shipper stick it in a corner til' they're good and ready to deliver it. Other than that, very happy, much better than their last version.

I'm 5'7" and considered slim to average in body type. I don't like my tops super snug and tight so I always choose to wear Scuba's in size 8, which gives me a little extra room in the arms and body. I recently purchased the bark berry colored Scuba (love the color!!) in a size 8 and holy smokes was it tight!! Tight in the arms and snug in the body....when I did the arms cross test, it really pulled at the underarms area and just felt all around way too snug. Thankfully I ordered an 8 and 10 and the 10 fit perfectly....like the 8 should have fit!
LL - If you "update or improve" the fit, then keep the overall sizing the same. It's annoying to have to order multiple sizes just to keep the ones that fit and deal with the hassle of returning the ones that don't.

Not happy with new scuba hoodie fit :(
I used to always beg my parents for a scuba hoodie for Christmas! They were my absolute favorite hoodie's I owned and fit perfect! But I Just ordered one in a size four, my normal size and fit for all the old scuba hoodies. But for Some reason the scuba hoodie 2 is much bigger than my other ones and stretches as the day goes on. Which isn't the normal for a scuba hoodie. It seemed like it fit pretty well at first but then as the day went on it was loose and not the scuba hoodie I'm used to. So I would advice everyone to try them on in store before am online purchase if possible because I was very disappointed :(

This was given to me as a gift a few days ago, and I am already in love! This jacket is absolutely amazing. It's warm without being bulky, and it fits me perfectly.

Scuba Hoodie II
I ordered a size 8 based on the reviews. It was the right choice for me. For reference, I wear 4 or 6 in tops and bottoms. Arm length is longer than normal and the sleeves (in the forearm section) are VERY tight. It would actually feel too tight to wear with even a lightweight sweater. Fingers crossed this will loosen a bit. Weight is great, it feels high quality. For the steep price, I am hopefull it holds up well after washing and wearing.

Thank you for making this longer!
The original was so comfy but this one is much better. The extra length in the torso makes it much more flattering. I'm 5'10" but this would easily fit anyone. Please start making tops in long!

Love the new length.
Unhappy overall-the inner arm is so elasticy and light (much lighter than the fleece of the arms and body) that it bunches. Also where stitching join inner arm material to fleece, threading is all worn and loose and snaggly.

I love this hoodie. It is definitely more of a heavy-duty hoodie than you'd get with a typical sweatshirt or zip-up. You could absolutely wear it in lieu of a jacket on a cool day. It also fits small/slim as advertised, so I would suggest going up 1 or 2 sizes depending on how loose you like your stuff. I am usually a size 6 and went with an 8, but it's a very snug fit. Overall, it's super comfortable and a great quality. Totally worth the price.

Great hoodie, Fits Small
I was really exciting that this was a heavier hoodie, as advertised. I am 5'3" 130 lbs, athletic build. I typically size up in any tops, especially when I plan to layer or have a long sleeve shirt underneath so that it fits in the arms and shoulders. The size 8 was so tight in the forearms and upper arm that I couldn't get it on to see if the shoulders fit. I have ordered the size 10 and hoping for the best, but am concerned that it will now swallow me in the waist.
