    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.

Classic. I am 6’3” 177lbs. I ordered a medium and it fits awesomely and is super comfortable. Wore it out with rain elements and it works as advertised. Would recommend this hoodie for sure. Great value and amazing fit. Will be ordering additional ones.

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. The lighter one is thinner than a sweatshirt. I bought 2 and both were ripped within a week. They should drop the price on the heavyweight hoodie, I would buy multiple if they did...
