I love this hoodie
It's warm but breathing, stylish, and has roomy pockets which don't let items slip out. It's stayed soft, even after 6 months. I'm a petite guy, and even as a S it feels a bit more roomy than I'd like.

Good, almost great
1) Its very thick and warm (made for outdoor use - probably too warm for most indoor use)
2) The hood fits very well (even over a baseball cap) and is designed to protect the front of your neck - bonus points for that
3) The branding is very subtle. Nobody will know you are wearing lulu lemon - not exactly known as a "manly" brand
1) The elastic cuffs on the sleeves are too weak and don't keep the sleeves from riding down onto your hands. They need more grip around your wrists. It almost as though they are worn out even when the hoodie was new. Kind of annoying
The bottom line:
Most expensive and best hoodie I have ever owned except for this little flaw that annoys me every time I wear it. Normally I wouldn't care enough to write a review, but this was not an inexpensive garment and was almost perfect. I might need to have a tailor fix it.

Just not good enough.
I love my Lululemon Hoodies. I really do. I have owned several over the years. The build quality is amazing, and thanks be to that! I haven't bought a new one for a few years because I haven't been happy with either the selection of men's products or because the quality seemed to have dipped.
I just got my new Sequence Hoodie, I was happy with the quality, the features, the nice rich colour.
I didn't have an issue with the sleeve length like many other reviewers have?maybe I don't have particularly long arms?the fit through the chest was good, the trunk has plenty of stretch for comfortable movement, the hood seems a tad too large, but the overall body length is severely disappointing. It fits right at the waist.
So try not to pick anything up. Or lift your arms. I will be returning mine. I don't want to feel self-conscious everywhere I go that I might be inadvertently mooning someone, or have some wicked plummer's butt.
I do miss the old Lululemon, the one with the decent men's selection, and the one without the weird fits. Luckily I can still where my old Hoodie from 7 years ago. It's only an XL, where in the new sizes, I wear a XXL.
And it covers my butt.

Nice Hoodie and really warm
I've had this hoodie for a few months now. It was awesome for the winter because I could wear it outside in the cold and i still stayed warm. The only downside is that this hoodie gets hot, I think I will have to put it away pretty soon because I sweat in it all the time and it is only march. Great quality hoodie but I wish it was a little more snug in the arms. I am medium build and I find it baggy in the arms.

Went back and forth about getting this hoodie. Totally lucked out that once I decided to "make the plunge" it was on sale. Nice and soft and comfortable. Sleeve length is great along with general fit, on the fitted side, but I like that and apparently I am the right "size" for lulu products, 5'7" 145lbs

This hooded sweatshirt is excellent. Just picked one up and it keeps me warm and comfortable at the same time.
Sleeve length is perfect, no complaints. I like having an extra pocket to place my phone. Just hoping there are some popover hooded sweatshirts soon.

This is super-comfortable, very well-constructed and has a very stylish fit. Pockets are deep and soft, and the chest pocket has a zip for your valuables. The hood is deep and covers my head properly (if you don't want it to shrink, hang-dry it - this goes for all articles of clothing you consider important). It matches up perfectly with the Men's Studio Pant.
This isn't made to be a thermal hoodie for working outdoors in Edmonton winters, so don't expect it to be one. Go to Mark's for that. For a great hoodie for a jog, gym session, running errands or just lounging around, look no further.
The branding is very minimal, as it is on most of this seasons items, which is a plus for me, but if you want people to know it's lulu, they're going to have to figure it out.
The only thing that I found odd about it is that the zipper is on the right side, which is confusing when you're in a store that is traditionally aimed at women.

Great hoodie, awkward fit.
This hoodie is close to perfect. It feels amazing when it is on, and it is really comfortable to put on after a workout or after hot yoga. You wouldnt believe how many compliments I get on it, especially from girls. It is probably the most comfortable hoodie I have ever owned. The hood is awesome on it, nice weight to it.
The negatives hold it back from being perfect though. I am 5'5 - shorter for a male. The sleeves are even short for me, as well as the body of the hoodie. It is fine when youre not moving, but if you reach your arms up, it is an epic fail in terms of fitting properly. It gets annoying. Other than that, the hoodie is great!
Whoever decided to remove the logos from the hood made an epic mistake. If we are paying $100+ for something, why wouldnt it be branded well? It doesnt have to be a huge logo on the hood like before, but a small one would be nice.

The sleeve cuffs are killing me!
The fit of this hoodie in the body is perfect, and the short length for my 5'7'' frame is ideal, but the sleeve cuffs are killing me! They are way too loose and keep losing elasticity. Like other reviewers said, it's easy for wind to blow through them which is annoying.
Lulu - please make these hoodies with tighter cuffs!

Close to wearable? I guess?
1. Sleeves are a 1/2 inch to an inch short
2. the hand cuffs are baggy to wind gets into the hoodie and chills your entire body despite the "warm" fleece material.
3. Hood needs to be looser or taller so it doesn't feel like the jacket is hanging from the top of your head.
4. Needs a headphone cable hole in the inner pocket (Hint: you can make your own in about 30 seconds though).
5. Overall its wearable, probably would return it if it was possible. Overpriced for a hoodie that isn't their signature fabric luon and doesn't keep you warm in wind. . . I live in san diego, so kinda pathetic.
