The Adventuridge Men’s Hooded Sweatshirt is ideally suited for those chilly autumn and winter days. The fabric is cotton and the lining is berber-fleece. The sweatshirt provides sufficient warmth and protection on days where the temperature is hovering in the forties or the fifties. Now although this sweatshirt helps to keep me comfortable in those temperatures, others may not feel as warm as they would like because different people react differently to the temperatures outdoors. For me, though, I like this sweatshirt because I can wear it and not have to grab a jacket when I head out the door. This sweater is more comfortable to wear than a jacket and isn’t as distracting to have on. Jackets can be bulky, so I prefer to wear this sweatshirt instead sometimes.
This sweatshirt has a hood that can be tightened with a drawstring. The hood does provide a decent barrier against chilly breezes. There’s also a zipper that can be raised and lowered. The zipper only covers the top half of the sweatshirt. The zipper moves up and down smoothly and I haven’t had any trouble with it so far and hopefully I won’t have any problems with it in the future. There are two pockets in the front of reasonable depth, perfect for one’s hands or a small object. I purchased this sweatshirt at an ALDI Food Market store. While that might seem like a peculiar place to purchase a sweatshirt, as compared to say a department store like JCPenny or a supercenter like Walmart, the price seemed fair and with the ALDI Double Guarantee policy, I felt I didn’t have anything to lose by buying it. The sweatshirt cost just under fifteen dollars and I had a choice of black or dark brown, and of the two, I chose the black sweatshirt. I like black because black is a color that can be paired with pretty much any other color without having to worry about the colors clashing. The sweatshirt seems to be made just as well as the sweatshirts sold in department stores, so I’m certainly happy with the purchase that I made.
This sweatshirt is comfortable to wear thanks to the material being soft and warm. It has both a zipper and a drawstring, so on cooler days, I can adjust the sweatshirt accordingly and on days that aren’t as chilly, I can lower the zipper and be more comfortable. It’s not as bulky to wear as a jacket and the black color goes with just about any color pants. The quality is quite good and the price was reasonable. I’m glad that I came across this sweatshirt and that it’s now a part of my autumn and winter wardrobe.
