Under Armour Charged Cotton Storm Full Zip Hoody

For those of you who read my previous blog entry.  Holiday Gift Ideas for the Fitness enthusiast. (Tested and Approved) You know that I recommended this sweatshirt as one of my 12 best gifts for the Holiday season.  This sweatshirt by Under Armour is the most comfortable sweatshirt I have ever worn.  The charged cotton material makes you feel like you are wrapped in a blanket and the Storm technology keeps you dry.  I can wear with a pair of jeans and sneakers on a cold day or while I am on a run. At first I thought I wouldn’t like having a zip up hoody because it feels more like a jacket than a sweat shirt but the elongated look made me look slimmer than the cut off look of a pullover. The bottom of the sweatshirt has a cuffed ribbing that you can wear flat instead of having to fold under like a normal pullover sweatshirt. This even allows you to wear a jacket over the hoody which many hoodies are too bulky to try.  The hood liner is super comfortable and sports a waffled look that is comfortable to wear. It has front hand pockets that are lined. This sweatshirt is even great for wearing while going on a run in the winter months. It kept me dry while the snow was falling and I had no problems staying warm.The material is designed to deflect moisture.   This is a do all sweatshirt with style.  Under Armour has a whole line of hoodies just in time for the winter months.   Bottom line, the Under Armour Charged Cotton Storm Full Zip Hoody is a must have this winter.
