Love my light weight hoodie

Bought one for my son and then had to buy one for me. I ordered a medium - I am 5’4” and 130#. It is a good fit and can layer a long sleeved shirt under it. It gets breezy and cold here by the Pacific Ocean, so it works wells as a layer or on its own. It is amazingly warm and it breaths. I normally can not wear wool next to my skin — but this material works well for my touchy skin. It launders well. I hang it to dry. And the neck construction keeps my neck warm not like many hoodies that don’t cover your neck. Love love love this hoodie. Am wearing it now as I write this review. More colors would be great.

Awesome for running!

I love the bright color! I’d been considering investing in a merino sun shirt for a while but so many out there are subdued colors and as a runner in the city I want to be as visible as possible. This coral hoodie is now my favorite running shirt – it’s as breathable and wicking as my synthetic shirts, but without the constant battle with locked-in stink. Sure, I may not smell like daisies after an hour of running, but I smell a lot better in this than I did wearing polyester, and if I hang up the shirt to air out afterward, any sweaty smell virtually vanishes by the next day. I can keep wearing it for several runs before I put it through the wash, save some water. Thus far I’ve been wearing it in mild spring weather, and it keeps me warm at the beginning if it’s breezy and then is nice and breathable toward the end when I’m warm from exertion. It seems like the shirt will continue to be comfortable in warmer temps - I definitely plan to keep wearing it throughout the summer. (Anything to avoid putting on sunscreen…)

One thing to be aware of is that if you wear a bra you may want one that’s close to your skin color, and any logos on the bra may show through. Also, as a runner I don’t find it practical to wear the hood (although I imagine it’s great for other things). If Wuru ever makes a hoodless option available with a high neck, I’d be all over that. Would save me putting sunscreen on my neck.

Great Hoodie

Prefect hoodie for traveling, everyday wear and cool mornings. I am 5'8 and ordered a medium, the fit is perfect and the color is spot on.

Almost Perfect

I really love this hoody. Great material and quality. I also really like the weight, enough to break a light wind but not too heavy that its hot. The only thing I can see that needs improvement is the length of the toroso, its far too short. if you raise your arms it rises too much and exposes your mid drift. Some of this is the length and some of this I believe is the cut because when you put the hood on you can feel the back raise up. If they made it a longer cut it would be perfect!

Thank you so much for this review - This is undoubtably a place we've identified can improve through reviews. We currently have a new run in production where we've made a length correction.

You'll also be happy to hear we'll be adding a new color too.

Love at first wearing

I bought the sweatshirt for my son, who runs and rows. He needed something that would have some warmth and that breaths. He loves this sweatshirt. We live in Pacific Grove, CA and it can be cold, foggy and windy. The sweatshirt works well on its own and as the wind comes up is a lighter warm breathable layer. He is 6’4” and wears the XL, which fits great. And he loves the thumb holders.
