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
Good fit, but worth the money?
Firstly, kudo's to lulu for an amazing fit. I very, very, rarely come across a jacket that fits me so well - no exessive bagging under the arms or around the torso/waist, curve hugging, slim sleeves, but also loose enough so I can move comfortably (I'm a size 2, 5'5/165cm, 110lbs/50kg). It could definitely be a bit looser in the chest, but when wearing a sports bra it's no problem at all. I love the thumbholes, as they keep the cold air out of my arms and my palms warm. The hood is thick, warm, and makes for a good pillow if I feel like taking a nap on the desk when studying. I actually like that they took out the ribbed side panels from the original scuba because the regular material is thicker than the ribbed and insulates more heat - I'd like to reiterate that for me the jacket is still loose enough for free movement and is not boxy or stiff at all.
My one complaint, as my jacket is black, is that dust and small particles stick to it incredibly easily. The one time I fell asleep in it I woke up lightly coated in the down that sheds from my comforter and had to lint-roller for ten minutes before it started looking uniformly black again. Also, the metal zippers from the original scuba were also quite a nice touch and seem more quality than the plastic ones now.
In conclusion, however great the hoodie may be, it's still just a hoodie and as a poor student I find it hard to justify two weeks worth of food money on one. I wanted a new scuba hoodie as I've loved my old one very much and saw the new design, and I do love this one just as much if not more, but my final verdict is that for 116$(w/tax) one is enough for me (definitely good to have, but just not perfect enough). I will invest more in those lovely speed shorts and yeah yoga tank tops.

I have been a lulu lemon buyer for a very long time now. Although i have noticed changes, i still love this type of sweater.
However, my last sweater was a size 8, and it did strech alot as i wore it and began to be alittle bit big on me. So i am now in between a size 6 and a size 8 and i want to order one online and i dont know which size to get! The 6 will be snug and the 8 will be roomy... which one is better?
Will the 6 strech alittle to give me more spce? or will the 8 fit me properly? Do these sweters still strech as much as they used to?
I havent bought one in about a year so im not sure if they do still strech as much as they used to. Someone help me!

I own a lot of lulu scuba hoodies. Like 20ish. I used to always buy them in a size 10 as I am extremely heavy chested and needed the extra room. Then I had to up size to a 12 when they changed the fit once again. Now my hubby surprised me with a new one and I can't even zip the darn thing up! What are you thinking LULU??? It's called a stretch scuba but you take out the stretch panels?? Ya cause that makes perfect sense! Everytime you make something good you go and change it!

Love Lulu but all my zippers are coming off!!!
I love my Lulu's, I think I have 12 of them now but the zipperheads on them keep breaking!! Its very upsetting considering how much I paid for them. Some of them are older but 1 of my newer ones have now done it!! Love the fit (size 10), colors, and patterns but if anymore break I will not be spending the money on them anymore.

It Happened Twice
I bought one hoodie and washed it but never dried it. I took it out of the washer and the zipper had broken off. I thought, I've had it for a few years, maybe it was just defective. I bought yet another sweater and the same thing happened!! Zipper completely broken, not fixable unless I replace the entire zipper. I had a lot of faith in Lululemon until this happened. Not happy, won't recommend this product.

Love my scuba! Got it last March and about to but another one. The fabric is so nice and keeps me really warm. The fit is great for me as well.

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. =)
