Classic cotton hoodies soak-up water like a sponge and get wet and heavy. The Mens Planks x Woodsy Drop-in Riding Hoodie is made from recycled polyester with a water repellent DWR coating. So, with the exception of a downpour or snowstorm you'll probably stay dry and comfortable. Normal hoodies are useless for storing stuff, but your cell phone and lift ticket will fit nicely in this one's zip-up kangaroo pocket. Then there's the hood toggle, a feature you'll never truly appreciate until your otherwise perfectly spotted landing gets obstructed by a flapping hood. It's pretty much a hoodie, just much better.
