Scuba Hoodie II
Warm and Comfortable!
I bought 2 scuba hoodies for the first time and I love them! I work in a construction type field and I'm outdoors often. Since I'm located in the SF Bay Area, it can get windy and cold at times. This hoodie keeps me warm and it moves with my body. I'm really short so it does ride up a bit but I am using these as my go to work hoodies. They are stylish, warm and very comfortable.

Great replacement to the original
I have one scuba hoodie from a few years ago before they changed them. It's my favorite hoodie and the scuba II is a very close second for me. I never bought the stretch as it has mixed reviews but the scuba II is as close to the original as you can get. I bought the camp check pattern a while ago, and while its a tad thinner than my first scuba it still keeps me warm in these fall months. I'm a size 2 across the board in lulu, 4'10 93 lbs. the length is the only thing I'd change. It's not as long as my first scuba. The fit is the same, I bought my usual size 2. I have to say though, if you're looking to layer under it with a thick sweater, definitely size up.

I love this sweatshirt! You should make it in the inky floral ghost inkwell bumble berry pattern! It would be the cutest sweatshirt ever in that pattern!

Having purchased several hoodies in the past from Lululemon, i was more than disappointed with my recent online purchase. I bought this scuba in size 6 (as I had for the previous scubas with thumbholes and side panels, which I could also wear a 4 comfortable too). When it arrived in the mail it was so snug I couldn't even wear a tank top underneath it.
I normally wear 4/6 in all lululemon items. When I laid the new purchase on top of my other older scubas, there was a huge size decrease in the new hoodie. It was comparable to a size 2/4 in width and the arms much snugger.
Since the hoodie was too snug, I returned it and had to get a different colour in a size 8 as they were sold out of the colour i purchased online which made me very upset.
Had i of known they changed their sizing i would have ordered the appropriate size and been happy with my purchase. When I got home with my new size 8 item, I laid it on top of my size 6 and it too was smaller in width and in the arms than my size 6 hoodies purchased from previous years. For reference I am 5'8", 120lbs and should not be needing to size up to an 8, when i sized up to a 6 previously that was even slightly big.
How can a staple item change so much? Essentially they are making a size 2/4 when the tag says size 6, I should not have to size up 2 sizes to achieve the same size as my previous scuba hoodie. It was bad enough when they took out the stretch side panels and shortened the hoodies to save on materials, but now to skimp so much on material and claim that the item is a size 6 when in reality it is only a size 2/4 is pretty shallow.
Now I am out my size in the hoodie I really wanted because they decided to change their sizing to be cheap and save money. If i am paying over 100.00 for a hoodie I should be happy and Lululemon should not skimp on the material. This is ridiculous and I will definitely reconsider my purchases if the sizing is going to be so inconsistent. If you are going to change the sizing at least have the common courtesy to let your customers know so that they can make purchases accordingly and keep your clientele happy.
I am going to return the size 8 hoodie tomorrow as I do not like the colour as much as the original and don't feel I was treated fairly as a dedicated customer. I hope they release more in the desired colour, but I highly doubt it because they make such a limited supply.
Word of advice: don't buy online and risk the sizing being way off. Or order several sizes and return the ones that don't fit (this option seems to be an extreme case, considering lululemon has a sizing chart, maybe it should be followed, so that this issue does not happen going forward)

Warm and flattering hoodie
I really like the Scuba II, much better than the Scuba stretch. I love the length (about mid-hip on me - I'm 5'5", 125# with a shorter torso). It's very warm - I get a little too hot inside in it. I love the thumbholes and oversized hood.
Negative - it certainly runs very slim. I ordered my TTS size 6 in the forest green and a size up 8 in black marbled grape. I decided to go with the size 8. The size 6 felt a bit constricting. If you're looking for a comfortable fit right out of the dryer, go with a size up. I can fit two layers underneath without it being too tight.
I love the black grape color - it looks more like an indigo blue.

Love it, but...
Got my heathered green teal/inkwell in mail today and I absolutely love it, but when I looked down at my arm I noticed what looked like a piece of green lint on it. Wrong, it was a hole! I am so disappointed as my size is no longer available. I am just glad I hadn't cut the tag off yet. Other then that I love these hoodies. I wear 2 or 4 in tops and have these in both but prefer the snugger feel of the sz 2. Very warm and cozy in this cooler weather.

i like it!
I just received this jacket, after alot of back and forth should i should i not.. I own a scuba hoodie stretch which i am really happy with. This isnt the stretch version, so I wasnt sure how it would fit. I took a chance, read the reviews, and purchased a size bigger than i usually would. I am a size 6-8 in shirts, bought a 10. Fits rather good. a little snug in arms/ chest, and a little baggy in the waist. My bust size is 36DD in lulu bras. I can zip it up all the way nicely. But would of prefered the waist smaller and the arms bigger. Anyhow, the scuba hoodie stretch i still prefer by a mile!

Super warm! Winter must-have.
Bought this before going to Alberta in October. Best decision I made! Very warm and comfortable. I wore it the whole trip. It does fit snug so I bought a size 6 rather than my usual size 4 and it's perfect. Worth the money as I know this will last me a long time, so hard to find a decent time hoodie that is warm, long enough in the sleeves and fits nicely in all areas!

My husband bought this for me after my last half marathon, I was so excited to have a new black hoodie ( my 7th lulu hoodie). I was soon disappointed. After one wash it faded, it also has white elastic popping out in the elbow area? I have been a faithful lulu customer for 8 plus years. Are you growing so fast that you have let your quality decline?

I bought this in West Edmonton mall store late last year and was very excited for my very first lululemon item. The fabric was thick and the feel is awesome, really great item either layering or just by itself. However, i did noticed that after a few wash that the color becomes really faded as if i had it for 5 years. I normally don't wash it very often as i am very careful in wearing them. So sad about this item. I just wear them around the house as it looks old.
