Scuba Hoodie II
Too snug, and still short in the waist
I was very excited to purchased the scuba hoodie for the first time, and was disappointed in a few areas. I'm approx. 5'4' and 110 lbs with a small frame, and ordered a 4 my usual size..but found this to be a stretch fabric but way too tight and too short in the waist. I would love to see lulu make this style in a longer version. The scuba hoodie was so tight there was no way I could wear anything thicker than a thin shirt underneath. Plus when putting my hands in the pockets, it didn't feel very comfortable and like a natural spot. The quality was good...the zipper I loved..orange trim around a rose colored zipper. But returned it for the above reasons. Would buy several if they came in a longer length in the waist, and looser fit.

Amazing Hoodie & Very Flattering!!
Love everything about this hoodie! It is a little longer (I have a longer torso) and it is the most flattering hoodie I have EVER owned!! The material is thicker so will be wonderful as we go in to the fall and winter!!

Love this Jacket! It can do anything active or good looking just kicking back. I was lucky enough to get the Camp Check now being mercilessly marked up on ebay.

I own 2 beautiful Scuba Stretch Hoodies. I was excited to try this one because of the longer length, but I was disappointed in the weight/thickness of this jacket. It is thinner than the stretch scuba and not as warm. I pretty much use my scuba throughout the winter and rely on the heaviness. I was also disappointed in the cheap quality of the zipper. I don't mind spending money for a top quality product- this scuba just didn't cut it.
Please continue to come out with more colors/prints for the stretch scuba...I need to add to my collection!

Camp Check Love
I just added the Camp Check hoodie to my collection of now six Scubas and couldn't be happier.
When I first saw this pattern, I knew that it would be a piece that could not only be utilized as a zip up hoodie, but would also look good styled like a jacket. The colors are gorgeous and the material is soft and thick.
I also scored the Heathered White color on WMTM a couple of weeks and and it is just as soft and nice fitting as my Camp Check.
For reference, I am a size 10 and it fits perfectly. So glad Lulu went back to the old design and length of this wonderful staple!

I normally wear a size 2 on my top and I am 5'7 so I tend to run into problems with long sleeves. I bought a 4 because the size 2 underarm seam was way too high. I could have even used the 6 because the sweatshirt was still too tight in the underarm area. The size 4 chest was way too bulky with too much extra fabric. The fabric is pretty heavy. I would like to see the same level of warmth in a thinner more giving and feminine style. I ordered the heather magenta/jewelled magenta and it looked faded and old. I returned it and hoping for some vibrant pink sweatshirts this winter!

Why Did I Wait So Long?
Every time I wear my sweater the first thing that comes to mind is "Why did I wait so long to buy this hoodie?". This hoodie is worth EVERY penny. I'm not one to buy clothes that are expensive very often BUT I'm already planning on buying another color in this hoodie. It's soft, flattering, long enough, and most of all it keeps you warm. Ever since I received my Scuba I cannot stop wearing it. Saving up for my next one! I'm addicted!

Love it, but...
This is my first LLL purchase. Like many others I hmmm'd and haw'd for a while before taking the plunge. When I received my new hoodie in the mail I was really happy with the look, feel and fit.
The "but" is because the left arm is sewn oddly and is twisted as if the thumb hole is meant for my first finger instead of my thumb.
I do not have a LLL in my town but went to the closest one to me and they saw the issue but didn't have the pattern in store, they were very helpful and called a store in another town, I went there and exchanged it. When I got home it was the same twisted sleeve on the new one. I am keeping it because I like it but it must be a flaw with this particular pattern because I tried a different pattern on at the first store and it was fine.
I got the granite black/mojave tan telemark print (marble look) in size 10, I am a curvy 5'7 160lbs and it fits and feels like a dream otherwise!

So disappointed in the mini camp check scuba hoodie. I got my normal size and there is too much fabric at the side panels near the bottom of the hem. It bulges out BAD! I can't pay $122 for a hoodie that looks hideous on me. I don't understand why this is happening?I own 5 scuba hoodies and they all fit great! So disappointing because this "lumberjack" hoodie was my gorgeous "fall go to item"

life changing hoodie
my first ever Lulu purchase was a pair of Gather and Crow crops and a Scuba Hoodie. I tried on a Nice Asana jacket first but it was not warm enough for me. The educator then gave me this hoodie to try on and it literally did change my life. I can be comfortable and warm all while wearing a jacket that flatters my natural shape instead of hiding it in boxy cut jackets. I was hooked. I now own several Scuba's, a Forme, a Dance Studio, and a Bhakti jacket in addition to an entire wardrobe of Lulu, I don't even wear "real clothes" anymore unless I'm going some place nice at night and sometimes even then I wear dressier Lulu. My first love will always be the Scuba.
