H.H. note: American Giant went crazy on blogs and the online hype went way way overboard. They claim that this is the "greatest hoodie ever made" and if you are on this site, you know that unless they are loopwheeled cotton that simply is just not going to be the case. Additionally the lack of a 2-way zipper, that even a cheap-o Uniqlo has, is a huge oversight.
These hoodies are nice and heavy 13oz fabric and I enjoy wearing mine. AG are the absolute top of the 'low-end' and really deserve to be in the mid-tier but now everyone and their uncle has one of these and some of the missing features have dropped them down in my ranking.
Custom-developed heavyweight cotton fabric, premium metal hardware, a tailored fit, this sweatshirt has been called the “greatest hoodie ever made.”
