Rain Defender®, Durable water repellent—water beads up and rolls off.

Rain Defender® durable water repellent garments are just as functional and comfortable while fishing, hunting, working, or standing on the sidelines at a football game in a sudden November rain. Water will bead up and roll off your sweatshirt, jacket, overalls, pants, and more, so a little rain won’t stop you from finishing the job without changing your gear.

The perfect hoodie
I’m 5’10” and very slim and I was worried a small was going to be too small but it was actually perfect, even still has a slight room for growth, I’m glad I didn’t get the medium, overall insane quality and I’m happy with it, will purchase again once this eventually decays which could be years

What makes this hoodie heavyweight if it’s not quilted lined?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Its more heavy duty compared to the cheaply made thinner hoodie they offer. I love the heavy weight hoodie. It holds up great even doing construction.
