Scuba Hoodie II
Love it, but wrong color
Recently received the black scuba as a present, but we realized that it did not have a gold zipper like in the picture. Really disappointed because I thought the gold zipper had a nice touch. It is a really nice hoodie though, and the quality is amazing. It's warm and has a nice fit. Would definitely recommend!

Not as high quality as I'd hoped
I received the scuba in black about six months ago as a gift and at first I was really excited. I loved how it fit and looked and thought it would be really high quality and long-lasting given my experience with lululemon products and what I had heard from my friends about the scuba specifically.
While I still like the feel, I am not as happy with the quality and durability of the garment and would say it failed to meet my expectations as a lulu product. The black colour is quite faded, the stitching along the elastic arm panels looks frayed, the waist/hipband at the bottom of the sweater is stretched out (even though it is not snug or stretched on me while wearing it) and the elastic in the elastic panel on the right arm is broken and frayed. This means that the broken white elastic thread is visible against the black fabric and the panel itself is misshapen. Again, the arms are not snug or stretched out during wear and I only ever wash it in the gentle cycle in cold water and do not put it in the dryer so I don't think this can be attributed to normal wear and tear or incorrect washing.
Again, I like the fit and look, but I was very disappointed in the overall quality of the garment and I can see from some of the other reviews here that I am not the only one. I will definitely think twice before buying something this expensive at lulu again.

Super comfy scuba hoodie
Best hoodie I ever bought! Reviews helped me find my size so I am 5'2 130lbs and like a jacket to kind of suck in/hide my small belly from after having kids! This jacket is so flattering on me and makes me feel comfortable and confident! The material is so soft. I got a size 6 and it's not too tight or too roomy it's perfect! So happy with this jacket :)

I bought my first Scuba Hoodie last winter and fell in love with it. I live in Phoenix so "winter" means 60 degrees. This was the perfect weight to grab and go anytime. I'll definitely buy another one next year!

this hoodie is great. It's heavy duty so I stay snuggly warm, but has wonderful shape and with the full zip actual shows off my figure instead of enveloping me in fabric.

I love my scuba hoodie and take very good care of it, washing it properly and only when needed, but I was disappointed when both sleeves started falling apart. I expected a hoodie of that quality to last. I wanted lululemon to be made aware, so I brought the hoodie to the nearest store which is 4 1/2 hours away, was told they would send it to be fixed, went to pick it up two days later, waited half an hour in the store, only to be informed that the hoodie had not and would not be repaired. Not impressed!

soft, substantial, well-made, and cozy
I have a few of the Scuba hoodies, and this most recent purchase did not disappoint! I bought the windowpane pattern, which is almost a heathered-light-gray background (not as white as I thought it would be) with the black stitching, and its overall appearance is casual but distinctive. I'm 5'8" and 132 lbs, and was worried about the length and overall roominess, so I purchased a size 8 rather than my usual 6. The fit is very comfortable, and the length is 25": just right for my long torso. The fabric is exceptionally soft, and substantial in a way that justifies the price. Very happy with my most recent lulu purchase!

INCORRECT ITEM DELIVERED TWICE, NOT ACCEPTABLE.
The scuba hoody || as advertised on .com & .co.uk website has a gold zip. my dad purchased the hoody for me in covent garden store to discover after it was taken home it did not have gold zip as in picture advertised on site. Had to go back store exchange it and was advised to get a gift card to order it online. The package arrived today and again a different hoody was delivered. it has black plastic zip. Mind you the name on the label is scuba hoody || For this to happen twice is unacceptable for an expensive hoody worth ?128 - I have been a lululemon customer for years and feel extremely disappointed that this should happen It is also false advertising. The lululemon embroidered logo is even in different thread colour than advertised in picture. It is extremely frustrating and time consuming for this to happen, twice. Being a lululemon customer and fan for years i've always raved on about your brand to friends and family, I have definitely spread the word and encouraged lots of people to invest in your products, which they have. This experience has completely put me off. I am keen to know if there is even a scuba hoody || available for delivery to Ireland with the gold zip at all !?....look forward to hearing from your design/web team with an explanation and proposed solution.

My go to! LOVE these hoodies!
I now have two Scubas and I love love love them.
I am 5'2 110 pounds and wear a size 4. I like the form fit and how it feels like second skin, it's so thick and well made and comfortable. I cannot imagine ever wearing any other hoodie now.
They're so plush though that when you hang them to dry they take at least a full day and a half to dry! I love the long cuffs and the thumbholes and the figure hugging design.
Please don't ever change this! hands down my favourite lulu item.

Avoid Navy Stitching?
I have several of these, I bought the Navy petal print one in February and despite only hand washing it a couple times (laid flat to dry) the stitching already looks terrible. Doesn't affect the performance of course but looks shabby and I haven't even worn this one much. The other ones I have seem to be fine, maybe the Navy thread is faulty?
