a blend of cotton and polyester famous for its coziness - this fabric is thick, warm and durable
why we made this
A deep, lined hood, thumbholes and Cotton Fleece fabric make this sweatshirt our go-to piece when we're wanting to boost our cozy factor. We designed it to be soft and stretchy to increase movability when we're battling the elements.
fabric + features
the Cotton Fleece fabric has stretch so the hoodie moves everywhere you do
the deep, lined hood and high collar help keep your head and neck warm
ribbing in the waistband, cuffs and under the arms provide additional stretch
park your zipper in the zipper garage to keep it from scratching your chin
thumbholes and snug cuffs keep sleeves down and make layering easy
Things that make me go "hhhhmmmmmmmm"
I got my 1st Scuba 5 yrs. ago for my 40th b-day in a size 8. It is looking a little ragged now after lots of wear. Last December I got 2 Scubas for Xmas, both size 6 (b/c there wasn't much of a difference b/w the 6 & 8 & I like my stuff to "fit"). Love them but I do find the arms a bit on the tight side (they are both the Scuba Stretch hoodie). This past summer I ordered a new Scuba in black in a size 8 & I couldn't even zip it up :( Very strange since my other 3 fit fine ... I returned it & haven't bought another one for fear the same thing will happen. The nearest Lulu store is 3.5 hrs. away from where I live. What's w/the inconsistent sizing??

Sizing up resulted in poor fit.
I sized up from my usual 4 to a 6 when ordering online. Perhaps this is why I am unsatisfied with the fit. I would disagree with all previous reviewers that say it fits small. My measurements are 33-25-35 and the 6 fit ok but was quite large in the body and had plenty of room in the bust and arms. The quality seems pretty decent in my opinion. The fleece is nice and thick and soft. I just didn't like the fit... it was not body conscious... it just seemed loose and somewhat bulky.
Lulu should bring back the fit from 2007ish when this hoodie was roomy in the shoulders/arms/bust but fitted in the waist... making your figure look feminine while still being super comfortable and cozy. Lets face it... nobody wants to feel like their chest/shoulders are being suffocated! Unfortunately, I will be returning my hoodie because the fit is all wrong. Perhaps I just shouldn't have sized up?

What an utter disappointment!
I would like to start off saying that I never waste my time writing online reviews for anything, but if I can stop another consumer from wasting their time, money and effort then this will be worth it.
This hoodie is cheap and poorly designed. The fabric is thin. Really really thin, and just feels super cheap. Feels like the material of a $20 hoodie you can purchase anywhere.
The zipper is cheap material, the stiching for the zipper already looks like it is about to come undone. Other reviews on here said that after a few washes the hoodie looked months old. I wouldn't doubt that!
They removed the side stretch panels. This isn't even a stretch hoodie anymore. I can't even get the hoodie to zip up over my breasts.
I understand that this is a business, and they are trying to maximize profit by making the product cheaper, but $108 for something that isn't even worth $20 is beyond ridiculous.

Okay for the tall girls!
I have some scubas from about 3 years ago, and I was reluctant to try the new ones after the changes that were made the past year or so. I was reading over and over that they were running particularly short (I'm 5' 10" and 110 lbs) but when I was at the store I figured why not try one on, because they've had some pretty cute prints lately. I'm a vegetarian and particularly try to abstain from wearing animal products, meaning I'm a sucker for cute and well made sweatshirts. Anywho I was pretty excited when I tried these on! They are certainly shorter than the Nice Asana Jackets (the scubas come down to my hip bones while the Asanas almost entirely cover my butt), but I think if they ran that long they would just be frumpy, bulky, and unflattering. Plus I love the layering look, so I'm always wearing a tank under everything so it makes up for any length concern. For those that have some scubas from a few years ago, I feel like the hoodies of these new ones are just a little lighter, eliminating that feeling of the scuba tugging on your neck like they used to, plus the hoodie is a little less stiff (in general the fabric seems a little less stiff). Embarrassingly enough, I bought two - the purple flower/herringbone print and the black floral print (sadly I'm not sure if that print is available online anymore)... Such a big purchase is pretty abnormal for me, so that should say something! Oh and the sleeves were plenty long enough too, I could use the thumb holes comfortably if I wanted too, but I'm not a big thumbhole user. =)

I would not even rate this Hoody!
You would think Lululemon would clue in to what sells the most! The old style Scuba Hoody popular colours would sell out in a day on Size 12 now most hoodies are still their in Size 12 and the ones that are not are because most people are ordering up a Size or two to fit! Bring back the old Scuba's and this is not the first post I heard on this matter!

Great as long as you don't wash and dry
I am a long time buyer of LLL, in fact I order something almost every week.
I bought this hoodie because of the cute color combo and it is cute but when I washed and dried it everything shrunk up a bit except for the bottom waistband it now pooches out and makes the whole hoodie look weird. I had to wash it to see that I should have returned it............Not Happy

Warm, soft & so pretty!
Got this hoodie recently because I've been wanting another scuba for a long, long, long time but was never really digging any of the new crazy bright patterns/stripes/etc. I got my first scuba when I was 14 and wore it to pieces until I outgrew it! I purchased the raspberry colour and the picture here doesn't even do it justice, it is a gorgeous bright, but not neon, pinky-purple. I had a hard time choosing between that and the heathered surge blue, which is also beautiful. When I first put it on I immediately noticed how warm and soft the inside was. I'm 5'4" and 115-120 pounds, average chest but with bigger shoulders. The 4 was very snug, but the 6 fits perfectly. I actually love the fit for the most part, long enough in the sleeves w/ thumbholes so you aren't always having to tug them down (I hate that!) but fitted nicely through the torso. I do have to echo what others have said, in that it would be even more perfect if it were 1-2 inches longer. The length is fine now, but I do prefer a longer length. All in all a great, pretty hoodie, it keeps me warm in the winter chill and looks great too!

I have 3 of these jackets!!! I love all 3!!! Make sure you are trying them on. I bought a size smaller in my black one and the other 2 I bought in my size, one is big and the other fits like a size smaller. Its odd!! But either way I love these jackets!!! They are great for this time too, when its cold outside.

Love LuLu but do NOT buy this sweater!
I am a self proclaimed and deemed LuLu addict by all of my friends and family. I LOVE their products, have modelled the clothes, and wear at least one piece a day. However, my husband bought me this scuba sweater in a burnt yellow and after washing it only three or four times (taking the proper Lulu protection cautions - I love the stuff so I take care of it) it has completely faded. The colour is more like a dingy white now it is awful!
The material of the sweater has become stretched and looks worn as well, and I have only worn it a handful of times. Something definitely has to be changed with this product as it is at first an AMAZING sweater! I have a few old ones that this has not happened to and they are still going strong after a few years.
Unfortunately my beloved burnt yellow sweater is now just sitting in my closet because it is too dingy looking to wear out... :( Don't waste your money on this product!
Attached is a picture of my current faded sweater. The colour of the zipper WAS the original colour.

comfortable yet unacceptable quality
At the end of August, I got the Plum Scuba Hoodie as a birthday present and I was so excited! Since I am an avid lulu lover I always take extremely good care of my lulu items and I am extremely disappointed in the how my hoodie is holding up. After only a few months my hoodie has seriously faded and started taking on a sort of brownish tone and the other I pulled it out of the washer and what looked like a grease stain showed up on my sweater that wasn't there when I put it into the wash. Also the elastic zipper pull is almost broken. While I love lulu gear, I am extremely disappointed in how this hoodie is holding up and would not recommend this hoodie to a friend.
