The waist doesn't droop down like in the pic, the hoodie fits just like it should. I love everything about it! The vents are so handy for when it gets warmer than expected or post-workout. The polartec fleece is well worth the price... I'm getting another one.

This is my new favorite hoodie. I wear it while running errands, after the gym and to and from work. You wont be disappointed in the fabric or quality with this. Its soft, durable, and stretchy. The pockets are functional and the core vents work well if you do happen to get too warm. I wear a Medium. Im 5'9 and 165lbs.
FYI that zipper problem. Its a real thing. Fix that LLL

Wonderful and Stylish Hoodie
I purchased 1 black Revolution and 1 Core hoodie for my fiancé for the holidays. He kept the Revolution and returned the Core. If you want an understated hoodie that has a je ne said pas in the details that differentiates itself from the others, get this. A few of the reasons why we kept this one was because of the great fit and the wonderful fabric--very soft, moisture-wicking, and warm! It can be worn at a range of temps. This was his only jacket for a 15 day trip abroad and it held up against biking, hiking and bball. It definitely dries fast may it be from rain, the wash, or sweat. Please hang dry this jacket. It'll keep far longer.
2 things that may have you reconsider is the really awful zipper. It gets stuck A LOT on the bottom. Especially if you are just trying to get it attached and zipped in the first place. The fabric is soft, but it can get caught in things (zippers, hooks) and give a scratched look.
Sizing: He is 6' and 220lbs and wears an XL; He has pretty broad shoulders.
I recommend that you use a sturdier zipper like from the Core hoodie or the women's Scuba hoodie.

All purpose hoodie
This is definitely at the top of my list among my favourites from Lululemon.
This hoodie is very stylish, and very warm. The Polartec Power Stretch Fleece is an incredible material (I hope you'll consider using it more). It's so lightweight, and still manages to be a great insulator. I love how stretchy and form fitting it is too. And the length of the hoodie is perfect, as is the high chin (perfect for the chilly weather). This has somehow replaced the core hoodie as my favourite!
I love it so much that I also ordered it in the soot colour!

Outstanding product with a couple of weaknesses
I have experienced some of the zipper issues that others have mentioned. Tough to get it started (seems to get easier with practice... like tying a shoe?), and Ive had one instance where it got stuck and took me 10 minutes to get the zipper undone.
The fit on the bottom is a little snug for me but I can undo the bottom with the double zipper and it fixes the problem. But hey, one size doesn't fit everyone perfectly.
The feel of the fabric is unbeatable. The fit (other than the bottom) is absolutely perfect. The zipper pocket rocks. Its warm. The vents allow me to cool off when needed. The thing looks amazing. I wear it all the time and wish I had more of them, in spite of the minor zipper problems.

My husband is 6'4, 200lbs. Large fits perfect. (It is a snug fit). Extremely comfortable and stretchy, he loves the vent pockets. Very breathable, warm for winter and the vents allow breath-ability for fall temperatures. His favourite sweater by far! The zipper can take a few extra seconds to hook up, but it completely seals and the sweater when zipped up.

Most comfortable sweater ever
This is the most comfortable and warm sweater I own. I'm between a medium and large on tops, but a medium fits perfectly in this hoody. I actually don't wear it to the gym, I got the core hoody for that. I wear it more to run errands and stuff.

Comfy sweatshirt with a zipper issue
I really like this sweatshirt that I ended up getting the Soot color afterwards so I can change off depending on what I am wearing. As others have mentioned there is a zipper issue where you have to tweak it just right to get it to go. I think it's a learning curve I just required but in general this probably shouldn't have been an issue initially (If you ever need me to test your stuff prior to production, please let me know :) )

For the price I'm disappointed
When it's cold the hoodie is great, however getting it on often proves to be a problem. I've had a revo for a little over a week now and it has helped get me though some of the days this year (-12 last night). Although it's warm, getting it to zip can be a pain. The two zippers frequently separate or are stuck, at times costing up to ten minutes just trying to walk out the door. For the price I expected more. The fit is spot on and I love the material but the quality control, at least for the zipper leaves something to be desired.

I have had a great experience with all Lululemon Mens products. This sweatshirt has a great lightweight polar fleece fabric and styling. Two small issues. Bottom of the garment fits a little snug around the hips and the zipper for some unknown reason is not easy to get started.
