Scuba Hoodie II
Love this, exactly as it is described.
I purchased this hoodie in the Houndstooth print, and I actually adore it. I have a few other Lululemon jackets that are tight fitting but none of them have a hood. This Scuba Hoodie truly has an over-sized hoodie which is great for if it's raining, or it's cold outside, or if you're on a plane and trying to avoid talking to people. I'd say it's as equally tight fitting as all of the other tight Lulu jackets are such as the define. The fabric is thick and would be perfect for cold weather, but isn't limiting in your movements. What I love is that the arms aren't tight fitting, they're roomy while still being flattering and as someone who weight lifts that is a great quality to have in a jacket.

I had to size up in this item. It's cozy, warm, and pretty great, but definitely size up! I'm a 6 in the define and an 8 in the scuba. (130 lbs).
I would like to see some new colors though. So much is a version of white, black, or grey.

Definitely need to size up...
I'm glad i thoroughly went thru the reviews and decided to up the size. Im usually a size 6 (34C, 5'7', 140) and the 8 was perfect. I have long limbs so the sleeves are perfect. Truly a good staple to keep in my closet!

Love the scuba
got this cute cheveron pattern green/black and I love it. I'm 5"9 and 142 lbs. I usually get the 12 in the Scuba. The Scuba's are one of my most favorite items of Lulu. I have long "monkey" arms and it covers them and I can use the thumbholes, yet even though I get a bigger size it doesn't look overall too big, enough room for a layer or two underneath. got 3 compliments on it today already. It does stretch out at the bottom after a bit of wear, but it doesn't shy me away. I could get away with the 10 if I needed.
For reference, I usually wear a 6 in pants, my tops vary from 8-10 in sizes depending on what look I'm going for or need.

Really wanted to love this!
I loved this jacket but it just didn't look good with my body type. I'm 5'4" and 135 lbs. I have a short torso and short legs so the way the hoodie hung on me made me look kind of frumpy. I loved the pattern and the fabric and how snug it felt, but sadly I don't think Scuba Hoodies are for me :( Also, I ordered the fatigue green color with the black chevron pattern, and it looked like the black wasn't solid enough, the green color was showing through. If you look closely in the pictures on the website, you'll see what I mean! But thank you Lululemon, for taking back my order~

I was so exicted when this went on sale; I love Lulu products and this print is especially cute. Unfortunately, my package was just delivered this afternoon and as soon as I put my arm in the sleeve, I could tell this Scuba hoodie was going to be uncomfortably snug. I read the reviews prior to ordering and decided to size up from my usual 4 to a size 6 since many people said this item ran smaller than usual. Looks like I should've sized up to an 8 because while I like a slim, semi-fitted look in these, I don't like not being able to zip it. Bummer.

Smaller than previous Scubas
As an owner of about 6 Scuba hoodies purchased over the last 5 years, I noticed this current edition is smaller. All of my Scubas are a size 4, but I couldn't even get the zipper closed in this model! I sized up to a size 6 and, while it fit, it was actually a little too too roomy, especially in the front between the chest and shoulder. (If Lulu made a size 5 it would be perfect.). I love the colour though - Heathered Speckled Black - so I'm keeping it even though it won't have the same snug feel. If you do buy this colour, be aware that the black "speckles" may appear as small grease spots. i had to look at a few hoodies to find one that didn't have speckles right on the front where one might think you spattered yourself with grease while cooking.

This hoodie was so warm I currently have 2 but I felt I needed a size up because it did not strech.

Disappointed with fit
I purchased this a little more than a month ago. Tried it on in store, and ordered on line later. It fit perfectly..... For a couple days. I only wore it 3 times total, and the bottom and arms have already stretched so much that it does not look flattering at all, and it makes me look ally larger than I am. I'm really disappointed by this, because I paid so much, and for a sweater of this price and quality it shouldn't stretch like this, especially only after a couple wears, and because I've heard such great things, and it is the most comfy sweater ever !

I love this hoodie! I am 5'9" tall 145lbs 36DD I tried on my usual size in the store (8) and it was WAY too small. I found out that a size 12 was perfect. (It seems that the sizing is in UK measurements rather than US) Not too tight in the bust and really comfortable! The fit is very flattering and it is easily layered under a jacket or shell! It is very warm and comfy! The sleeves are long enough for me to use the thumb holes! This has never happened before with any brand! The hoodie looks sporty but can be dressed up with just a scarf! I bought 2 and want to get more! I see gifts for my daughters in the near future!
