Quite possibly the single most comfortable hoodie pullover we’ve ever made. The updated version of the Hoodie Hero features light and airy cotton slub for textural interest and the cowl neckline is sophisticated, unexpected and flattering. We increased the cuff measurements for a proportion that is perfectly cute. The kangaroo pocket is bigger, too - so you’ll have more room for chilly digits when summer evenings turn brisk.
Fabric: 100% cotton slub knit
4-way comfort stretch
Women’s Hoodie Hero™ Pullover
A nice lightweight hoodie
I got this to wear as a light layer for active and social occasions. I was a little nervous when I ordered the Geyser color, but it's a bit greener in person and really pretty! The material is soft and comfortable, and the neckline appealing. It's not super warm, but that's actually something I kind of like about it. Fits well, pretty much exactly as I expected.

this really runs small
bought this for my 10 year old granddaughter in size small. it barely fits her around her body. the sleeve lengths fit fine. she weighs 90 lbs. she loves it so I will reorder in med. or large.

Love this hoodie!
I love this because it is soft and excellent to wear with layering or by itself. I usually wear a small in most of Columbia's tops but this one runs a little small so I bought it in a medium at the Columbia store in Portland, OR. I got the black and now ordering it in the Geyser color. It is comfortable to just wear at home or out and about. I also like that you can tighten the cords and can form a collar if I just want something around my neck. I rarely use a "hoody" as a cover for my head. So I like being able to have a collar effect. One of my favorite tops to wear.

I don't think I will ever take this off! I usually wear a medium, but ordered a large to layer over other shirts. I'm glad I did. Large fits like a medium, just longer sleeves. The material is really soft and very lightweight. I love that I don't feel like I'm being chocked out from the neck! I'm definitely buying in another color.

Recommended but be aware
This is a nice top, although thinner than I thought it would be. The photo looks like it would be a lightweight hoodie sweatshirt but it is not. I got the violet color and it is a very nice shade. You will need more than the kangaroo pocket on cool evenings. But it is great for a warm day (not hot) and the neckline is very flattering.

It's super cozy. I wore it two days in a row (don't judge me) and received 5+ compliments on it each day that I wore it. It's awesome. You should buy one.

bought a second one
I bought one at a factory outlet "on sale" while out of town. I liked it so much I went online and bought a second one for the same price. I love the shirts, wore it yesterday. Its super cute, nice cotton material, washes well and the hoodie is a cowl which I had never seen before so you can control the warmth.

My new favorite shirt
I can't remember the last time I was this in love with a new shirt. I could sleep in it and wear it everyday, it is soft and cozy! Now I'm going to order the black one too. Size is true on M.

I expected better quality
When I first got this sweatshirt I loved it! It fit true to size (5' 5" 135 lbs) for a small. It is feminine and comfortable at the same time. HOWEVER, affter two washings (per recommendations on the tag) and only a couple of wearings it now has a GIANT hole in the elbow. I did not snag it on anything, simply pulled the shirt on and heard a rip. For $48 I would expect a product that would last. I have purchased items from brands that are much less reputable and been much happier with the result. If the sweatshirt had lasted, I would have bought another, but given that I never got real value out of the first one I will not be.

Performs as expected
Perfect for those lazy fall days or the many days spent watching the kids' sporting events. Light but still kept me warm when the fall breeze picked up on a sunny afternoon. Love the thumb holes and the green color!!! Wish there was a heavier sweatshirt in the same style.

This is the most flattering sweatshirt I have ever owned! I adore the stretchy close- body fit.
I got the fuchsia/grape color and love it, and am waiting for the blue to be available again.

This is hands-down my new favorite item in my closet! I wear it ALL THE TIME...just can't get enough. It offers a perfect layer over a tshirt or under a fleece. I love the thumb holes too!
The hood design is feminine & flirty. All the luxuries of a hooded sweatshirt but without the bulk!
I'm 5'5 - average weight...got a large & it fits wonderfully for me! Sleeve length & all! Might consider a medium if wanted a bit more form-fitting.
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

Love the Hero!
I absolutely love the style of this Hoodie Hero Pullover. I first saw it when I was on a trip in Seattle, WA and they did not have my size. Since then I had checked online and at the Columbia outlet stores. I was so excited when I saw that more sizes became available online! I love the hood and unique neckline and front pockets, it is just my style.

Multiple color shirt!

Just loving it!!
I bought 2. I love this. Don't want to take it off, it's so comfy yet light. I originally got it for sun protection while walking on the beach. It has long sleeves that cover my hands and hood for the sides of my face. This will be perfect for those breezy days when a sunhat won't stay put. Wish it came in more colors. This is one of those things that want multiples of, in case I can replace it next year!! Love it!

A little dissappointing.
I was very excited to get this hoodie. I saw it in a department store that didn't have my size and ordered it online. I still like it a lot but the sleeves seemed to shrink in the was, the bottom stretched out a bit. I have been a little dissappointed in this purchase.

Great lightweight hoodie
This is super comfortable. It runs just a tad large so be aware for sizing. It's a great throw on over a tank shirt. The material has some texture to it to add a bit of interest. The hood part of this shirt isn't like a traditional hood, more like a cowl neck pretending to be a hood. I like the style!

Perfect fabric weight, and I love the slub. The hood/cowl is great as well. The reason I purchased this one was because I picked one up in the store because of the thumb holes, and fell in love! I will be ordering at least one more. Runs roomy, but comfortable.

Great fit, not super fitted. Nice, lightweight material and comfortable. Love the slouch collar for that girly touch.
April 18, 2011
I love the thumbholes on this hoodie. I usually have a problem with hoodies not being long enough, but this one is perfect. It runs large. I bought an XL and could have easily gone with a large. The sleeves are a tad long as well, but overall, it's a very comfortable, stylish hoodie and I LOVE the oxide blue color :)

Hardest part was selecting a color
Great hoodie. Very versatile neckline. Loving the tumb holes in all of my recent purchases. This is a nice fitting hoodie around the middle- more tailored so it doesn't look sloppy at all. LOVING IT!

I really liked this hoody at first, it fit very well when it came out of the box, besides the thumb holes which were placed to high on the arms for me to use. However after I washed it the first time it shrank so much that the sleeves barely fit and is very tight. I ordered it in the purple, which is really more of a fuschia color. It has a lot more pink than displayed in the photo.

Hoodie Hero is my Go-To Hero
I now have this in 3 colors. It is perfect for a hoodie look with out the very casual look of an actual hoodie. It is also shaped in a way that you don't look baggy and thick in the middle. I can throw this on with jeans or even a casual skirt and it looks casual, not sloppy. If I need something fresh and comfortable, but still somewhat put together - this is my go-to shirt.
