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.
the Cotton Fleece fabric has stretch so the hoodie moves everywhere you do
the deep lined hood and high scuba 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
Just got this hoodie in White/Groovy Stripe Nimbus and I really like it! I'm usually a sz 6 or sz 8 in lulu, and I went with the 8 in this...not super tight or loose, just right on me.
The plastic zipper is a bit of a let-down (prefer the metal zipper from the old scubas) but everything else is great!
I found that the old scubas were a bit smothering around the neck, due to the heavier material, so this lighter version is much preferred!!
The length is good for me (I'm 5'8") but I would consider buying another if a longer version was released.
The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because of the price...wish these were under $100!!

who checks the zipper?
I just got my new scuba hoodie (stretch) in the mail. Great colour! Love the material. Big problem when I tried to zip it up. The zipper wouldn't zip up past my throat. Right where the material seams meet at your collar bone, the zipper got stuck. Not just once. I took it off and I tried about 10 times and each time it got totally stuck and I had to pull/yank it to go up. Going down is a bit easier.
To me this does not seem good enough for the money that I just spent. A zipper should work without effort!
Now, what do I do as the colour is sold out in my size?
So yes, I would recommend the hoodie, but check zipper!

This is my favorite sweater. I love the thickness of the fabric (I also have a pair of pants from this fleece but haven't seen them offered in a while). The sweater is very fitting, so for large chested women like myself it can be tight in the chest. I love it so much I just bought one for my sister for a gift.

Would love to see a zipper!
I love the scuba, but im tired of worrying that I will loose my phone out of my pocket. It would be amazing if you could put a zipper on the inside of one of the front pockets :) Thanks!

Please make a long version!!!
I love these hoodies, they are supe thick, big hoods, and love the thumb holes. The only problem is the length. I am 6' and 125lbs and typically wear a 2 and I would LOVE if a long version came out... even if it's only once at christmas or something and it doesn't even matter what colour. I am fine with paying extra since it's more fabric! I think there are likely other people in my situation who would love to buy this, if it was long enough (like in stride length perhaps).

What's the fuss???
So after reading all the negative vibes on here, I decided to add my two cents. I recently purchased the Aquamarine striped purple in a 10. For reference I am 5'7 (evenly proportioned) 150 lbs and a 36 DD/DDD. This is asize up for me but I did put on about 10 lbs in the last year. I have not bought a scuba in at least that long because I was looking for lighter and looser fitted jackets. I could not however pass up this colour, I love love it! I was getting very nervous about it fitting properly and it being too short based on all the negatiove reviews here. It fits fine!!! A little snug on the chest but I am used to that. The color is beatiful, although I would have liked the bottom ribbing to have been in the purple and not the aquamarine. The lenght is what I am used to from the scuba's (anyone complaining should remeber the REMIX lenght which was way shorter).
All in all I am very happy with this scuca.

I received the Scuba Hoodie in Parfait Pink via FedX. I wear a size 2 consistently in all apparal, but when I tried on the Scuba in a size 2, it was ridiculously tight in the chest......and I am very small busted. I was so disappointed. The jacket otherwise seemed very nice and good quality. I will be returning the jacket. I am not sure if ordering a size up will help. Will there really be that much difference in the chest? I think it is terrible that I must pay $5.00 S/H to return an item that is not true to size.

So long to a true favorite
I am sure glad I purchased my latest scuba hoodie when I did. When I saw the new colors for spring I was so excited, until I looked at the photos a little closer. These scubas are clearly much shorter than the old scubas. My question to YOU lululemon, is why would you change something that was so perfect before? I may be a small person barely reaching 5'2... but I loved the way that the OLD scubas covered my bum and tummy. With the new scubas clearly being a few inches shorter, us ladies are now exposing the 'unflattering' areas of our bodies. Lululemon, you have made a huge mistake. I hope you are more careful in the future when it comes to 're-designing' your classics... I am still waiting for the define jacket to come back as the forme jacket is complete garbage. I will continue to purchase my favorites from lululemon but I am in no rush to give in to new products.
A little advice for those doing some shopping, READ THE REVIEWS and examine the photos!

Nice hoodie, colour off
Received my hoodie today and disappointed with the colour. Ordered it in fresh teal and received a bright neon green hoodie! Fit is ok, longer length would be nice. Will be returning today :(

Oh my gosh. The fit of this hoodie is horrible compared to the older ones. While in the store, I tried this hoodie on in a 10 and a 12. I could barely zip up the 10, and the 12 just fit okay (still too tight around the chest, but I am quite busty.) The store happened to have some of the older, longer style hoodies in black (only), so I tried those as well. The 10 fit well and gave me enough room to move, and the 12 just swallowed me. I normally wear a 10 in a Lulu gear, so the fact that the 12 Scuba Hoodie Stretch just barely fit was a disappointment. Stupid me, I decided to buy it anyway (even though the older style black 10 fit great, I just really didn't want black.) I got Very Green, and the color is fabulous, but the fit just isn't. It's not as long as I'd like it to be (I'm only 5'4", but I have a long torso, and this just barely sits on my hips), and I don't have enough room in the shoulders and chest region. I ended up selling it on eBay because I couldn't justify keeping it for that price with fitting so poorly. I will find an older style on eBay.
