The main reason i wanted to get one of these was because my hood was blowing all over the place in the wind, and so i wanted an alternative, then i found these online and i brought a black sweatshirt about 4 months ago, i wear it most days now.
It does not shrink much (from what i can tell anyway) in the wash. They are very comfortable and and do not get too hot like some sweatshirts but they prevent you from getting cold too. I've worn them many times outside the house instead of a coat.
The size is generous, however the elasticated wrists and waist take some time to stretch to size bacause they are a little tight at first. I also brought a bottle green sweatshirt and they are both almost as good as when i first got them. The only criticism i have is that small bobbles can form if you sit down a lot on rough surfaces (such as a fabric computer chair or sofa). 89/100
