Scuba Hoodie *Stretch (Lined Hood)
The only product I had from LLL was a really awesome yoga bag. I've always thought of LLL as having quality products because my yoga bag is now years old and still looks brand new. I recently decided I wanted a nice quality hoodie for an upcoming trip to somewhere that'll be in the 50s. I'm glad I decided to come on here by chance to see what they offered. My sister is a huge fan but I always thought I was too big. I am 5'9", 36DD, 31 in jeans. I took a chance and got a 12 and it is fitted, which I like, but also roomy. The stretch at the bottom makes this jacket very comfortable. I just received it and was pleasantly surprised, which is why I decided to write the review, but I can't speak for how it'll hold up. I'm just pleased with my initial reaction and wanted to share my experience for anyone else who wonders about sizing/online ordering.
This jacket is too warm for a typical summer day but perfect for spring, fall, or generally cooler climate.

I received the pink & white scuba hoodie from a friend. It is my first Lululemon piece that I've ever owned. I've always thought I was too big for Lululemon as I am a bigger girl (5"3 - 190lbs). She convinced me and swore up and down that Lululemon clothing would fit me depending on which year it was from, size, style etc... When I put on the sweater I was shocked it fit. It was very comfortable, soft, the color is great and I loved that it had side panels on the sleeves & body. I'm almost certain if it didn't, it wouldn't have fit. I am so pleased with this product that I have bought my first scuba hoodie online. I am looking forward to receiving it in the mail sometime this week.
The only reason I am not giving this a 5 star rating is because after the first time I wore it I started noticing piling in the armpit and arm region. I'm assuming that is partly due to my body being bigger, but I don't seem to be the only person complaining about piling. I've bought Tuff Athletic clothing, which is must cheaper than Lululemon and have never had piling issues with any of their sweaters, pants etc.
Still looking forward to being a new lulu customer!

I got a pink scuba for my birthday and it was love at first sight! At first, my scuba fitted perfectly, but overtime, it started to shorten. I think next time i'll either get a size 8 or 10 because I'm not going to spend $108 if it won't last me awhile or i'll go for the scuba II because i saw great reviews. Love my hoddie and its super cute, flattering, and cozy on the ice and in cool weather.

I received a scuba hoodie for Xmas in the wrong color and size. I reluctantly exchanged for a bigger size in black. Huge mistake!!! I have literally washed it inside out no dryer 5 times since January! You would think I have owned it for 5 years not five months. For $108.00 I am really disappointed and feel embarrassed to wear it. It is so faded. I love the fit and how warm it is. I just think for that price it should last more than 5 washes. Very faded and very disappointed!

This is not as good quality as the old Lulu scuba hoodies. I own four of them and the newest is five months old and looks older than the one that is 5 years old. The new material is terrible quality and pills. Even if you hang to dry it pills. There's no way I'm going to hand wash a hoodie, I'm sorry. Lulu needs to step up their game, or lower their prices. I don't mind paying for quality, but lululemon is really riding on the reputation of their previous products. Will not buy again.

First of all my yoga wear which I use half of every day is from Lulu and I generally like the quality and also I very much like the look of this jacket.
The issue that I have with this jacket and all other jackets (I just got the Dance Studio jacket too to see if it works better) as well as the long sleeve tops is that it is real hard to find something at Lulu that is going to keep you warm.
I understand it might not be the season for warm but it would be nice if stock where kept for warmer items for where and when its needed.
I would love to see Lulu follow in the footsteps of other great brands and include a move towards more natural and warm fabrics such as wool and cashmere. I feel this would also be very much in line with the brands philosophy!
Lulu with its focus on functional wear, it would be super if the jackets also where functional and did what they're supposed to do, namely keep you warm!

Love in a hoodie. My first scuba hoodie, bought it in mint and I can't express how much in love I am with it. My favorite hoodie above any other. So comfortable and fits perfectly.

Love this hoodie!
Love the mint green scuba hoodie. The colour is gorgeous. It's thick and warm. It fits me perfect! I'm 5ft and 100 pounds and I bought a size 2. I'll most likely purchase another colour in the future!

I love the scuba hoodies they all come in very beautiful colours and designs. However, I do not like the length!! I am standing at 5'10 and I find that the hoodies fit perfect in the arms and body but are very short. I always have to wear a long tank top underneath to compensate for the shortness of the hoodie! Really wish they were longer, I would definitely buy more.

warm and cozy
I absolutely love my scuba hoodie! For over a year I was looking to invest in one, I found one in my size and in the colour i wanted, since I wasn't 100% sure on buying one I passed. I had made a huge mistake, not buying the scuba hoodie. The colour I had my heart set on (a dark purple), was not only out of the stores but not online. So I waited a whole year and checked almost every week to see if somehow it was in stock. Unfortunately that colour never came back. Being me I travel all around the country and always stopped by different Lululemon stores in each city. I went to one in Scarborough for the first time and I found one for only $60 which is very good compared to the regular $108. It wasn't the purple I always kept an eye out for but a nice dark blue and I obviously could not let this one slide like the last time so, I pulled the trigger and bought it! Now that I have wore it quite a bit I really am used to the fit and comfort it provides, it is just amazing and I am glad I didn't keep waiting for the purple because this whole time I was missing out on just having one to wear. I am definitely going to invest in another one soon and I highly recommend this hoodie to anyone!
