Three things set this hoodie apart, making it perfect for outdoor excursions. First, the lower shoulder seams reduce chafing under shoulder straps and lessen garment shift. Second, the extended collar blocks the wind and layers perfectly under a jacket. Third, the zippered kangaroo pocket on the front and a cell phone pocket on the upper sleeve create easy-access storage. Bonus: The cotton/poly/fleece blend is uber warm and cozy. $76;
