Looking for a good hoodie

Trackstar had a hoody a couple years ago that I thought was awesome that I am an idiot for not buying. It was plain black, no logos/designs at all with a long-in-the-back cut, extra long sleeves, jersey pockets and a pretty slim fit. I'm trying to find something similar. Got any suggestions?

Is that not what the plain hoodies you can find at Wal-Mart are?

That Witch Hunt stuff looks great. Anyone have any idea how warm their hoodies are? The Edwin might be great for winter riding.

Minus the slim fit a larger Carhartt insulated hoodie plus a few minutes with a sewing machine would provide a similar result.

You can get just a plain hoodie at WalMart. But if you prefer paying more for the same thing in order to satisfy your hipster urges, so be it.

to avoid paying $120 for a "cycling specific" jersey when the $20 wal-mart ones are pretty much the same?

yes. that is precisely what us idiots are suggesting.

Sorry, I forgot hipsters are generally spending mom and dads money.

well i actually quit gap but i still work retail, just not in clothes.

what i meant to say is that you should shop secondhand if you can't afford small/quality stores. walmart's detrimental social effects are well documented, i won't recount them here.

Hard to find but cheap mountain military hood the shoulder piece is satin lined//the face perimiter is so you can pull it under your chin but you can also let it over your mouth because there is a plyable mouth unit so there is less breath condensation on the cloth ///It is for extreem cold/Kenneth

Hey ****ing dip****s, a walmart hoodie isn't the same. They don't have a low cut in the back. They don't have longer sleeves or articulated bends. They don't have jersey pockets so I can carry ****. Stop suggesting a walmart hoodie. But hey, thanks for contributing your ignorant know-nothing opinions and judgments on who I am, where my money comes from and how I spend it.

Oh, forgive us. I forgot how important a low-cut back is. And those articulated bends—I always wondered why my elbows stopped working in my normal hoodie.

The man's looking for a specific kind of hoodie. I'm sure that he's realised his options with run of the mill hoodies so I don't understand why people have to harp on the kind of hoodie that he wants. He even described in his first post the kind of hoodie he was looking for and yet everyone started making suggestions completely different to what he was even asking.
